WARNER HUTTON
RANCHER OF SARATOGA, SANTA CLARA COUNTY

HISTORY OF SANTA CLARA COUNTY 515
A resident of California for almost three score years and ten,. Warner Hutton came to California with his parents in 1854. Born in New York City, March 9, 1842, he is the son of Henry and Eleanor (Foster) Hutton, also born in New York City, who on coming to the Coast first settled in San Francisco. During the year of 1870 the father bought a ranch on the Quito Road in the vicinity of Saratoga and improved it to orchard and lived there in peace and plenty until he passed away in his eightieth year, while his widow survived him and died at almost 100 years old. Warner's preliminary education was obtained principally in the schools of San Francisco. As a boy he was always interested in engineering and his desire was to run a locomotive, but to learn it thoroughly in those days meant for him to go back to New York
and his mother would not consent to his going away. He was employed in San Francisco until his parents moved to the ranch at Saratoga, when he also came here and assisted in setting out the orchards and caring for them.

When Mr. Hutton's father passed away, the home place became his and he has developed it to such a degree that it brings him a good income each season. Mr. Hutton is a Republican in his party affiliations and spends much time in the great outdoor's hunting and fishing when opportunity affords. He has always been interested in the growth and prosperity of Santa Clara County and especially in Saratoga and vicinity, and aids in progressive movements looking to the upbuilding of the community which has so long been his home.
