Irish Suttons

by Nicholas M. Sutton, The Moyne, Enniscorthy, Co. Wexford, Ireland

Apologies for such a short contribution to this issue of the newsletter. I found myself unable to finish in time for submission an article on those Suttons who were implicated in the 1641 Irish Rebellion. The article will consist of the names of ten Suttons, their place of residence and depositions by people who informed on them.

The three articles I enclose could be more helpful to subscribers who are trying to locate place of origin of their antecedents. By the way, I've made a couple of unsuccessful inquiries regarding having my article posted to you though the Internet.

Sorry, again, for being late with this article. I might surprise you with an early submission for April's issue. I have been on the trail of recently stolen family related documents from our ex-solicitor's office. We, my wife and myself wish you, your wife and children and the SUTTON SEARCHERS subscribers a Merry Christmas and a Prosperous New Year.

Prerogative Wills.

An Estate was dealt with by the Prerogative Court, rather than a Consistorial Court, if it covered property more than 5 in a second diocese. Prerogative Wills tend to cover the wealthier classes, merchants with dealings in more than one area, and those who lived close to a diocese border i.e. where property extended over the border into an adjoining diocese. The original wills and grants of administration having been transferred to the Public Records Office Dublin, were transcribed into Prerogative Will and Grant Books, and. indexed. only the index books survived the 1922 burning of the Public Records Office during the Civil War. Some of the Will and Grant Books survived the fire but all the original wills and grants were destroyed. The surviving Prerogative Will Books are for the Period, 1664-84, 1706-8 (A-W), 1726-28 (A-W), 1728-29(A-W), 1777(A-L), 1813(K-Z), 1834 (A-E), while the Prerogative Administrations, Grants 1684-88, 1748-51, 1839; Day Books, 1784-88.
