About Dorothy Sutton


April 2014: (from Carole Pomeroy) "I have searched through at least eleven pages each of Yahoo results and Google results for the children of Sir Edward Sutton, 2nd Baron Dudley and Cecily Willoughby, and the only published reference that I found Dorothy Sutton as being married to John Huddleston was A Genealogical and Heraldic History of the Commoners of Great Britain and ... (1835) Vol. II

All others I found for listing Dorothy Daughter of Sir Edward Sutton, 2nd Baron Dudley and Cecily Willoughby do not list a husband."
