Personal Sutton Research:

SUTTON Family with ABERCROMBIE & FAUERBACH My personal Sutton and collateral family research information back to 1829.

My principal research interest: Joshua and Catherine [Hamilton] Sutton and descendants

Need all info on marriage and family of Joshua and Catherine [Hamilton] Sutton of Wendover [near Drummondville], Drummond county, Quebec. I believe they arrived in Quebec between 1815 and 1825 from Ireland or USA.  Children:
1. Elizabeth, born ca 1802, perhaps in Clogheen, County Tipperary, Ireland. She married Henry Johnson on 7 May 1827 in Drummondville, Quebec. She died 30 April 1851 a few miles south in Barnston, Stanstead Co, Quebec where she was living with other family.
2. Robert, born ca 1803-05 in Ireland according to later Census responses, married Sarah C. Buckland on 15 Oct. 1829 at St. James CE in Hatley, Stanstead county, Quebec and lived nearby in Barford, Quebec. Robert moved after 1870 to Turner, Maine USA where he died in 1880. He and Sarah had nine children.
3. Mary, married Thomas William BRIDSON, Lumber Merchant, on 12 Aug 1825 at the Sutton farm in Wendover, Drummond County, Quebec. Both are reported decesased on the 8 Sep 1859 date of the marriage of their daughter Eliza to Andrew DUNCAN. Mary and Thomas may have been living in Quebec City when they died.
4. Ann, born ca 1809, perhaps in Clogheen, County Tipperary, Ireland.
5. Julia, born ca 1813, perhaps in Clogheen, County Tipperary, Ireland.
6. William Hamilton "James" SUTTON,born ca 1818, was married in 1846 in Kingsey, Drummond Co., Quebec, Canada to Mary Abercrombie of the Robert Spence Abercrombie family. He died in Kingsey Falls on 2 May 1861. He had six children several of whom moved to Worcester, Massachusetts and NH. Mary died in nearby Danville, Quebec.
7. Alicia M., born abt 1821 also perhaps in Ireland, married Alexander SCOTT in 1847 at St. Paul CE in Kingsey Falls, Drummond co., Quebec. She died on 11 Apr. 1874 and is buried in Crooker Brook cemetery in Dixville, Stanstead co., Quebec. Alicia and Alexander had five children.
8.George SUTTON, born ca 1820, perhaps in Béal Átha Póirin, County Tipperary, Ireland.

I'm looking to contact any FAUERBACH and ABERCROMBIE family researchers.

The database now contains the genealogical research conducted by SUTTONSEARCHERS columnist Dennis P. Sutton which focuses on New Jersey SUTTON families.


Other contributors include SUTTON mailing list moderator Milo Sutton of Hermosa Beach, California and Bob Martin of Alaska.

Can you believe we get paid for doing this?

Philpot John Sutton
An early ENGLISH Sutton family, British Loyalists, fled to Quebec after the American Revolution. Philpot John Sutton of Stanstead County, Quebec and, reportedly, his brother John arrived in Stanstead County from Vermont in about 1806; they had reportedly emigrated from England seven years earlier.

I would now refer you to this excellent site maintained by Brian SUTTON who I've corresponded with for more than five years. He's taken the research on this line much farther than my early attempts with primary research in Stanstead County. He can be reached through this website if you have family connections to this ENGLISH Sutton line.

I distinguish this ENGLISH Sutton line as it appears NOT to be related in any way to my IRISH Sutton line that also resides in Stanstead and Drummond counties of Quebec during this same period.
