Matthew Hutton (3 January 1693 – 18 March 1758) was a high churchman in the Church of England, serving as Archbishop of York (1747–1757) and Archbishop of Canterbury (1757 to 1758). He was a direct descendant of Matthew Hutton, who served as Archbishop of York in the 17th century.

Hutton was born near Richmond in Yorkshire, and was educated at Ripon Grammar School and Jesus College, Cambridge, graduating in 1713.[1] He was a fellow of Christ's College, Cambridge, from 1717 to 1727, and became a Doctor of Divinity in 1728.

Hutton became a royal chaplain to George II in 1736. He became Rector of Trowbridge and of Spofforth, in Yorkshire, and held prebends at York and Westminster. In 1743 he became Bishop of Bangor, and in 1747, Archbishop of York, before finally, in 1757, becoming Archbishop of Canterbury, but died the next year without having ever lived in Lambeth Palace.
