  • parents: John SUTTON & Julian ADCOCK b: BEF 11 FEB 1598/9 in Attleborough, Norfolk, England


  1. 1 JAN 1661 in Scituate, Plymouth, MA Elizabeth HOUSE b: BEF 23 OCT 1636 in Scituate, Plymouth, MA Possibly a second marriage. 4 5

The couple had eight children:  John, Mary, Sarah, Hannah, Hester, Benjamin, Nathaniel, and Nathan.   Elizabeth and all eight children are named in John, Jr.’s, will.  After selling his father’s house, John and Elizabeth moved to Scituate, Plymouth Co., MA where they remained until John, Jr’s., death 12 Nov 1691.  Elizabeth, it is said, moved to Rye, NY where she died.  She may have remarried.  Son Benjamin would change the family name to Sitton.

Notes listed by Richard Schepper. * * * * * * * Notes from WFT #3101 V ol 3. John Sutton, born 1642, married to Eliza House, "purchased Conihass et (N, Scituate) lands; Selectman 1668. Surveyer of highways 1683. Commiss ioned ensign of Military Co. of Scituate, March 1670 [Reference: Pierce 's Colonial Lists, page 72] and served in King Phillips War. Will prov ed 30 Mar. 1692 [Reference: Plymouth County Probate Records]"

The town of Hingham gave John Sutton four acres of land for his family. (Had they gone to VA, PA, or SC, the Suttons would probably have received 50 acres per family member.) We may assume that after receiving their land, the family built a house and began farming, for years later, after John, Sr.’s, death, John, Jr., sold the house the family had built on the four-acre lot. Public records for Suffolk Co in 1653 state:

John Sutton junior of Cittuate in New England Carpinter. . . conveys to Mathew Cushen Senior of Hingham. . . my house & all my house lott Containeing fower accres of land . . . wch was giuen by the Town of Hingham to John Sutton my father. [original spelling retained.]

The fact that John Sutton, Jr., is identified as “carpinter” is significant in that carpentry was a skill often used by colonists who did not have a lot of money to buy land. Perhaps both he and his father supplemented the family income through carpentry, though I was unable to find John, Sr., identified as a carpenter. One reason that John, Jr., may have chosen to take his family to Scituate after his father died was that that town had a blossoming ship building trade. As a carpenter, John, Jr.’s, skills would have been valuable there. (Later John, Jr.’s, sister Margaret married Joseph Carpenter, who, fittingly, was a carpenter/joiner by trade.)
