Daniel Sutton the younger

???? - 1871

Claimant or beneficiary


Father of Edward Rogers Sutton and Emily Ann Sutton (each of whom q.v.). The 'Daniel Sutton' who was awarded part of the compensation for the enslaved on Ann's Grove and Two Friends in British Guiana with Bryan Holme as trustees for the two minors Edward Rogers Sutton and Emily Ann Sutton (each of whom q.v.) could have been this man or could conceivably have been the children's grandfather, Daniel Sutton the elder. It seems likely beneficial interest in the estate and the enslaved people had come to the children from the family of their mother, Margaret Sutton, who died in 1823. Given the naming practice for the son, she was conceivably Margaret nee Rogers. No marriage record has been traced for other Daniel Sutton the younger of Margaret Sutton.

  1. Daniel Sutton the younger was shown as the father and Margaret Sutton as the mother of Emily Ann Sutton and Edward Rogers Sutton when the two were baptised as St Mary Abbots Kensington on 26/06/1822 and 05/06/1823 respectively. The Times shows Daniel Sutton of Earles Terrace Kensington and Champneys, Tring, Hertfordshire, on marriage of his only daughter Emily Ann to Richard Valpy of Birmingham in 1844. Emily Ann Valpy was the niece of Sarah Rogers (q.v.), a co-claimant on this estate. This Daniel Sutton died in 1871 'late of Earl's Terrace' leaving £90,000 in effects.

  2. The Daniel Sutton whose death was registered Q4 1842 Kensington and whose will of Earles Terrace Kensington was proved 26/10/1842, was Daniel Sutton the elder, father of Daniel Sutton the younger. Daniel Sutton the elder's will identifies Edward Rogers Sutton and Emily Rogers Sutton as the children of his son Daniel the younger. Daniel Sutton the elder bequeathed in trust to his son Daniel the younger and Bryan Holme what seems like a significant property portfolio in London, including building land in St Marys Abbott Kensington; leasehold property in Earles Terrace, Leonards Place, Edwardes Place, and Kensington Place West and East; and further leasehold property in Islington and in and around Tottenham Court Road. In a codicil of 1840 he left Champneys to his son Daniel Sutton the younger. His will makes no mention of property in British Guiana. He was described as 'a carpet manufacturer of Wilton....one of the main protagonists in the long-running saga of the completion of Edwardes Square and nearby streets' in a discussion of private individuals 'otherwise unconnected with the building industry' investing heavily in house-building in southern Kensington.
