First Generation

1. George1 SUTTON was born in Tenterden, Kent, England April 12, 1613. George died April 12, 1669 in Perquimans Precinct, Albermarle County, North Carolina at 56 years of age.(1)

He married Sarah TILDEN March 13, 1636/7 in Scituate, Plymouth Colony, Massachusetts. Sarah was born January 13, 1613 in Tenterden, Kent, England. Sarah was the daughter of Nathaniel TILDEN and Lydia HUCKSTEP. Sarah died March 20, 1677 in Perquimans Precinct, Albermarle County, North Carolina at 64 years of age.(2) She was baptized January 13, 1613 at Saint Mildred's Church in Tenterden, Kent, England.

George Sutton sailed on the ship, Hercules, in 1634 from Sandwich, Kent, England. He was a servant in the party of Nathaniel Tilden of Tenterden, Kent, England. Within two years of settling at Scituate, Massachusetts he married Sarah, the daughter of Nathaniel Tilden. About 1668, after Plymouth Colony enacted penal laws against the Quakers, George Sutton emigrated to North Carolina with most of his family to escape religious persecution. He died in what is now Perquimans County, North Carolina within a year of leaving Massachusetts.

His family's association with the Quaker religion tends to reinforce the belief that Daniel Sutton, of Burlington County, NJ and William Sutton, who was an influential Quaker in Woodbridge/Piscataway, NJ are his sons. Both had emigrated from Massachusetts at about the same time as the others moved to North Carolina.
