William Raven Sutton (1858 – 31 October 1931)

William was the son of agricultural worker Benjamin Sutton and his wife Emma.  He was born in Over, and grew up on West Street in Over. He married Harriett Yallop in 1879.  William and Harriett had eight children: Lizzie Ann (1880-), Robert William (1882-1949), Ernest Albert (1884-1956), Arthur Isaac (1886-1941), Percy David (1890-1966), Daisy Jane (1895-1975), Ethel Lily (1898-) and Ellen May (1900-).

William worked as a shunter on the railway and the family lived at 32 Ainsworth Street in 1881/1891.  He later became a goods guard and the family moved to 66 Great Eastern Stret (1901) and then 100 Gwydir Street (at least 1901 onwards).  He died at home in Gwydir Street aged 73 years old.

Harriett Elizabeth Sutton (née Yallop) (10 November 1861 – 27 January 1940)

Harriett was born in Dersingham in Norfolk, and was the daughter of Robert and Martha Yallop.  Her father worked as a labourer, and she grew up in the same village in which she was born. She married William Sutton when she was 18 years old.

After being widowed she continued to live at 100 Gwydir Street and died there in 1940 aged 78 years old.
