Apparently there are at least 6 places called Sutton in Nottinghamshire.
One of them is Sutton-on-Trent, in which parish there were several manors, at least two of which were held by families called Sutton, who you might imagine were related, if you like, though of course they might not have been.
One of those families were the ancestors of the Suttons of Averham (Aram), Notts, and the Suttons of Dudley.
For the Dudley Suttons, this wasn't good enough. Scurrilous rumours had been put about by their enemies, which were false, but not having a real male-line pedigree didn't help.
Riding to the rescue, appropriately attired, Edmund Knight, Chester Herald, later Norroy. He knew there was an earlier (unrelated) Sutton family at Sutton-in-Holderness, aka Sutton-on-Hull, in Yorkshire, recorded in the charters of Meaux Abbey.
So he extracted a garbled sequence of Amands and Saires from the monastery records, stretched it back to 1066 at the top, attached the Notts and Dudley Suttons at the bottom, filled in all the missing wives with made-up names, and figured out how many fake hours he could bill for.
