Sutton on Trent

"Sutton-Upon-Trent is a large and well built village and parish, situated on the Great North Road, and on the west bank of the Trent, eight miles north of Newark. Its parish contains 1,273 inhabitants, and 2,450 acres of land, enclosed in 1803, when land was awarded to Sir Edward Hulse, the impropriator, and to the vicar in lieu of tithes. J.E. Denison Esq. is now the principal owner and lord of the manor, which anciently belonged to the Suttons, one of whose co-heiresses married Bertram Monboucher, who in the reign of Edward III claimed a market every Monday, and a fair for two days, on the eve and feast of St James the Apostle, but they have long been disused. There is a hiring for servants on May Day and Martinmas. Mr John Esam, Mr William Palmer, Mr Samuel Pennington, Mr James Buttery, Miss Elizabeth Downing and many others are small freeholders.
The church is a handsome structure, dedicated to All Saints, with a tower and five bells. It formerly had a slender spire, which was taken down a few years ago. It is a vicarage, valued in the King's books at £5 6s 8d, now £290. The Rev. Richard Thompson is the incumbent and patron, having purchased the next presentation from the Hulse family."
[White's "Directory of Nottinghamshire," 1853]
