Hutchins, Richard, D.D.
a minister of the Church of England, was Hervey's tutor, and a very faithful member of the Oxford Methodist Society. He became a fellow of Lincoln College, December 8, 1720; subrector, November 6, 1739; bursar and librarian, November 6, 1742; rector, July 9, 1755; and died August 10, 1781. His only publication is a Latin sermon, Elucidatio Sexti Capitis Evangelii Secundum Johannem (1847, 8vo, page 51). "In more respects than one Dr. Hutchils continued an Oxford Methodist long after all his old friends had been dispersed." See Tyerman, The Oxford Methodists, page 370.
