  • Notes 
    • George and his wife migrated to North Carolina in 1729 to avoid the Quaker persecution in MA. initially this land was held by Lords Proprietors and their descendants who were reciepients of this land as a gift from the King.

      George Ambrose Sutton died at the age of 56 on his birthday April 12, 1669 in Albemarle County, Perquimans Dist, North Carolina.
      ——
      Sailed from Sandwich, Kent, England in 1634 on the ship Hercules & settled in Scituate, MA. Listed on ship’s manifest as servant of Nathaniel Tilden.

      About 1668, after Plymouth Colony enacted penal laws against the Quakers, George Sutton immigrated to North Carolina with most of his family to escape religious persecution. He died in what is now Perquimans Co, NC within a year of leaving Massachusetts.

      He was a planter in Scituate from Mar 5, 1638/39 to 1643. He was also a town officer. He had lands laid out on 1st Herring Brook. His house was near John Daman's at the SW end of Greenfield Lane where it unites with the Driftway. He and his family were Church of England until sometime after 1650 when he and his family pursued the Quaker Faith. In 1668 he emigrated to Perquimans, NC because of Quaker persecution in Massachusetts. All of his family went except Daniel who went to Burlington, West Jersey and William, who went to Eastham, MA and then Piscataway, Middlesex, NJ
