As such he was admitted a Fellow of the College of Physicians 30th September, 1690, under which date his liberality and good wishes towards the College are thus recorded: “Eodem die, iisdemque Comitiis Majoribus, insignissimus vir, Dr Johannes Hutton, medicus Regis Gulielmi primarius, in Sociorum numerum admissus est, locusque illi concerditur qui de jure ad illum pertinuit. Is vero, ne tam insignem honoris tesseram ingrato animo accipere videretur, summum auri satis honorificum dono dedit Collegio: promistique insuper (si ex voto succederent omnia quod futurum minime desperabat) se grandioris pretii munus in posterum largiturum.” Dr Hutton was incorporated doctor of medicine at Oxford 9th November, 1695. He was admitted a fellow of the Royal Society 30th November, 1697. He accompanied William II to Ireland, and was with him at the siege of Limerick, and at the battle of the Boyne.
