Right: William Henry Hutchings in his toy, china and fancy goods shop, North Street. Photograph taken sometime in the early 20th century
Many thanks to Linda Cameron both for the photograph, and for information below. I have added to it where I can.

William Henry Hutchings married Mary Jane Blight in the March quarter of 1872, in the Newton Abbot district.
1891 William Henry was living in North Street, but was employed
as a gardener - according to family tradition, before they married both
he and his wife worked at Waye House and Waye Farm.

In 1911 he was still living in North St, on the eastern side of the road, roughly at No. 30 - see the People and properties section.
William was an earthenware dealer, and he and his wife, Mary Jane, had been married for 39 years. Of their 8 children still living, five were with them on the census: Ella Jane, Emma Amelia, Lily Elizabeth, Amy Louisa and Herbert Charles.
1911 census RG14, piece no. 12727
This is probably where the shop pictured above was situated.
January R Hancock and Son, solicitors in Callington, appealed to other
solicitors and bankers for any will that they might hold for William.
The advertisement said that he was formerly of Ashburton, but had lived
for the past three years at Callington, and had died on December 18th
