Re: SITTON Origins
The late genealogist Burt Sitton gave me a CD consisting of 144 pages of "Descendants of Joseph Sitton," whose page 1 may help you.
"Joseph Sitton's ancestry begins with his 2nd. great grandfather, John Sutton Sr., who in 1638 left Attleburg (Aggleborough), England, and sailed for America on the little ship, "Diligent of Ipswitch," along with his wife Juliana Little and four children.John and his family arrived at the port of Hingham, Mass., just a few miles north of Plymouth Rock, and just a few years after the Pilgrims landed there.
Burt Sitton recorded that John Sutton Jr. was married January 1, 1661 to Elizabeth House, Daughter of Samuel and Alice Lloyd House -- he was over 40 years old at the time.Elizabeth is the mother of all his recorded children.
"Benjamin Sitton, son of John and Elizabeth House Sutton, Jr., was born March 22, 1674.."I could read more of Burt's document to see how many of John Sutton Jr.'s eight children adopted the spelling Sitton, as did Benjamin.
If you want me to do that, please email me off-list.
