Sutton Family, Yeoman of Grittenham Wilts
« on: Friday 27 August 04 18:03 BST (UK) »
Please would it be possible for some kind soul to help me? I am trying to research my links with Wiltshire.

My gt grandfather (Roland Tom Sutton), gt gt grandfather (Thomas Sutton)and my gt gt gt grandfather (James Sutton) came from Grittenham in Wiltshire.  It states on the marriage certificate of Thomas who married Susanna Hathway that both Thomas & James were Yeoman of Grittenham.

The marriage took place in the Parish Church in Brinkworth on 13th April 1854. Suanna's father was Richard Hathway (also a Yeoman) and witnesses to the marriage were John & Martha Hathway.

I am trying to find any information relating to this family if possible and would be extremely grateful for any help with this . 

Many thanks
