Nurseryman and landscape gardener, active in the first quarter of the nineteenth century and described in J.C. Loudon's Encyclopedia of Gardening (1822) as one of the three principal landscape gardeners in Ireland at that time.(1) The address which he gives in the advertisements which he placed in the Irish Farmer's Journal and Weekly Intelligencer in 1815 and 1816, is Mountbellew Bridge, Castleblakeney, but this may have been simply because he was working on the demesne at Mount Bellew house, where he was responsible for creating the lake, between 1813 and 1816.(2) Dutton was the author of Observations on Mr Archer's Statistical Survey of the County of Dublin (Dublin, 1802), Statistical Survey of the County of Clare (1808) andA Statistical and Agricultural Survey of Galway (Dublin, 1824).
A person of this name married Mary Anne Fitzgerald at St Anne's church, Dublin, on 28 May 1791.(3)
