It is really something to sing and dance about.
Dig up those old bones and get them dancing!

Change the two party system
so people against something like abortion
but for something like environmental protection never again get bigger and badder storms
and two bankrupting wars instead.

Sutton 2: Sutton of Dudley, Sutton of Yeawith Yeanwith
John de Sutton, 'Lord' of Dudley d c1370/76
BE1883 identifies this John as the 2nd Baron. We follow TCP and BP1934 which do not identify a hereditary Baron until this John's grandson.
m1 25.12.1357 Catherine de Stafford d 12.1361, dau of Ralph de Stafford, 1st Earl of Stafford
1 BE1883 identifies John's first wife as Margaret, daughter of Roger de Mortimer of Wigmore, and reports that both his sons were by his second wife, Johanna. TCP does not provide any details on his wives. Noting that BP1934 reports that John had only one son by his first wife, we follow BP1934.
2 BE1883 combines the 3 generations shown here as this next John and the next 2 generations into just 2 generations as follows: this next John m1. Alice Despenser, m2. Constance le Blount, d 1407, next John m. Elizabeth Berkeley, d 1487. The information provided by TCP which 'kicks in' for the 1st Lord would support both BE1883 and BP1934 but, as an 80 year gap between the deaths of father & son seems long, we follow BP1934 which shows the following
1. John de Sutton, 'Lord' of Dudley b 06.12.1361, d 10.03.1395/6
