Background: Some believe the points of the compass played a part in the selection of this particular surname during medieval times. Sutton is ostensibly a local surname, and is derived from either ‘a southern/south-facing farm’, or ‘to the south of the farm or village’. It can often be a settlement that is situated to the south of a larger one. Almost every English county has a place name with the prefix Sutton – Sutton Coldfield in Warwickshire, or Sutton Montis in Somerset. It is from the Anglo-Saxon words, ‘sudh’, meaning south, and ‘tun’, meaning town.

Variations: Suton, Suttone

Discussion of this family is welcomed.

My grandfather was a Sutton. Although the surname is of English origin, just like many of our ancestors, the Suttons not only lived in England but in other areas of the UK as well. It is not a real common name here in the US so everytime I hear the surname, I often wonder if I am related to that Sutton especially since my Sutton family pretty much scattered themselves from NC to all over this country. They seem to have been very nomadic people. Just a few years ago I had a Sutton cousin contact me and while talking we found out we had lived only 30 minutes from each other in California most our lives! Go figure! biggrin.gif
