Sutton House


Sutton House is a wonderful Tudor house, built in 1535 by courtier of King Henry VIII, Ralph Sadleir.  It was the home to many merchants, sea captains and Huguenot silk weavers.  And later squatters.  Although many of its owners carried out major renovations it still retains the charm and features of its past.


Including this oak panelled room.  So where does Sutton fit in?  An error it seems.  Sutton owned the house next door, however I'm sure he wont mind.

So this house named after Sutton wasn't really Sutton's? I guess you are right, he won't mind.

I wouldn't mind at all if I were Mr. Sutton!
