  • Administrative history:
  • The Filmer family originally lived at Otterden and references to various members of the family living in that neighbourhood can be found in T124 and T200. Robert Filmer was the first member to move to East Sutton, living at Little Charlton. He was one of the Prothonotaries of the Court of Common Pleas in the reign of Elizabeth I and appears to have been the founder of the family fortunes. As an indication of his improved status he obtained a grant of arms in 1570 [F1/1].
  • His son, Sir Edward, married Elizabeth, sister of John Argall, lord of the manor of East Sutton, and the latter, soon becoming indebted to his brother in law, was compelled to sell him the manor. An interesting group of letters about these negotiations will be found in C1.
  • His son, Sir Robert, author of Patriarcha, was imprisoned in Leeds Castle for his support of Charles I and East Sutton Place was searched by Parliamentary forces on several occasions in 1643 [C4].

  • The Filmer family was originally seated at Herst, in the parish of Otterden, Kent, where Robert Filmer lived in the reign of Edward II. Sir Edward Filmer was eldest son of Robert Filmour, prothonotary of the court of Common Pleas in the reign of Queen Elizabeth, who removed to the estate of Little Charleton, in East Sutton, which he had purchased, and died in 1585. Sir Edward increased this estate by purchasing from his brother-in-law John Argall, Esq., the manor of East Sutton; he was knighted by Queen Elizabeth, and served the office of sheriff of Kent 13 James I.
