Origin of the Name Sutton

The origin of the name Sutton was found in the archives. The name Sutton can be of both English and Irish origin. When of Anglo origin it is likely of locational origin being derived from several places so called in England. When of Irish origin it is from 'de Sutún' which would suggest a Norman influence. It has been prominent in Counties Wexford and Kildare since the thirteenth century. This name is found in many mediaeval manuscripts throughout the above islands. Examples of such are a Johannes de Soutton and a Symon de Sutton who were both recorded in the 'Poll Tax' of the West Riding of Yorkshire, England, in the year 1379. An Albinus de Sutton of County Nottinghamshire was recorded in the 'Placita de Quo Warranto' in the reign of Edward I. In Scotland a Mariot de Sutton of Dumfriesshire rendered homage in the year 1296.
The Sutton coat of arms came into existence centuries ago. The process of creating coats of arms (also often called family crests) began in the eleventh century although a form of Proto-Heraldry may have existed in some countries prior to this. The new art of Heraldry made it possible for families and even individual family members to have their very own coat of arms, including all Sutton descendants.
