HON. MR. JUSTICE          F. A. HU     rON.
Frederick Augustus Hutton comes of a family which has
taken a distinguished part in the public life of South Africa.
His grandfather, the late Sir Andries Stockenstrom, was the
first Lieutenant-Governor of the Cape Colony. His father,
the late Hon. C. W. Hutton, was a prominent politician in
the Cape Legislative Assembly and was Treasurer-General
in the Scanlen Ministry of 1881.
He himself was born at Bedford, Cape Colony, in 1862,
and was a second son. His elder brother, Andries, is still in
practice as an attorney and is a member of the long-estab-
lished firm of Bell and Hutton, of Grahamstown. The pre-
sent judge received his early education at Bedford Public
School, from  which he matriculated in 1880.     He then
continued his studies at the Victoria College, Stellenbosch,
and obtained the B.A. degree of the University of the Cape
of Good Hope in 1883.
Like many other distinguished lawyers of this country, he
started life in the Civil Service and was for two years in
the Customs Department. He resigned in order to become
Registrar to the Hon. Mr. Justice C. J. MAASDORP, who was
then  on  the bench   of the Eastern   Districts Court at
Grahamstown.    The position afforded a favourable oppor-
tunity for the study of law and so for the advancement of
Mr. Hutton's ambitions. Of this opportunity he took full
advantage with the result that he obtained the LL.B. degree
of ihe Cape University in 1892. He was at once admitted
to  the Eastern   Districts Bar and   started  practice at
Grahamstown. The leaders of that Bar in those days were
Mr. A. F. S. MAASDORP (now Sir Andries), who was Solicitor-
General, Mr. VICTOR SAMPSON and Mr. H. F. BTAINE. Al!
three have distinguished themselves in their profession and
have attained judicial honours.
