Sutton Massachusetts

Town of Sutton



I own a copy of the original printing of the History of Sutton, which covers 1704 - 1876. Note that this book is full of "unusual spellings" - and this isn't just that a few words were spelled differently back then. You can find a word spelled in four different ways on four different pages. Many of the folk were farmers and fishermen who simply didn't know how to spell well. You need to be a bit patient when reading this, and sound some words out to figure out what they meant.

Here's the image of that original version.

I've created a modern-day annotated version of this book which provides more details about important events. It also integrates the "errata" pages so that you don't have to hop back and forth between pages to figure out what is correct and what might be incorrect. You can get my updated version in both paperback and Kindle format.
