History of Sutton >> White's Directory 1848
SUTTON, on the south side of Broomhill river, one mile South East of Rochford, has in its parish only 120 souls and 760 acres of land.
Mrs. Aitkin is lady of the manor, but part or the soil belongs to James Tabor and William Cockerton, Esqrs. The manor belonged to Suene at the Conquest, and was afterwards held by the Sutton, Cosyn, Hall, and other families.
The Church is ancient, and consists of a small nave, chancel, and tower. The rectory, valued in K.B. at £11, and in 1831 at £256, is in the gift of Mrs. Aitken, and incumbency of the Rev. Thomas S. Scratton.
