Concerning Jane Hutcheon (nee GALL), my own manual search of records seem to tally with the computer choice (so far). These would seem to be her family details:

William Duncan GALL
Christening: 8 May 1844 Dundee, Angus, Scotland
David GALL
Christening: 28 Jun 1846 Dundee, Angus, Scotland
Jean Petrie GALL
Christening: 23 Apr 1848 Dundee, Angus, Scotland
Christening: 27 May 1849 Dundee, Angus, Scotland

Here are Wedding details of the parents of Jean Petrie GALL:

on 4th June, 1843 at MONIFIETH in Angus, Scotland.

You can observe the changes in spelling here. William Gall is surnamed "GAUL". Jean Petrie is forenamed "JANE".
This confirms that JANE & JEAN are interchangeable. GAUL is another name for FRANCE.
Obviously, the Gall family originated there. 'GALL' is simply the anglicised version. I ought to point out that North East Scotland has a large FRENCH presence in terms of ancestry and family connections.

This present state of knowledge may change, but certainly, it seems to be the most precise according to available Scottish records.
I observe from U.S. terminology that the commonest American variant of HUTCHEON is HUTCHINS. The latter term is used in the UK along with several others. It is sometimes confusing to refer to one person with two different surnames.
