Re: John Sutton, St. Mark's Parish, Orange Co. VA 1739.
Who is the John Sutton of St. Mark's Parish in Orange Co. VA 1739, involved in a deed toa John Manspoil (sp?)? Microfilm, Orange Co. VA, Deed book no.3, 1738-1740. John Sutton's wife isElizabeth (a very common name then)who relinquished her dower rights. This land is whereSutton "now lives".
Is this fellow part of the John Sitton/Sutton confusion ? Orange Co. came off of Spotsylvania Co. 1734, and Culpeper came off of Orange in 1748.
Later I found 1755.http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~vaspotsy/1755road.htm, a John Sutton Spotsylvania Co. VA listed among men for road work.
