It is not generally known that a branch of the family of the late Mr Sutton, of Scotby, formerly resided in Kendal. But such was the case. The tan yard now occupied by the executors of the late Mr Thomas Atkinson, adjoining the Friend's Meeting House, was, prior to 1816, the property of Wilson Sutton. He resided on the premises and carried on an extensive business as a tanner. He died at York in 1816 and, leaving no family, the tanyard went into other hands. The father of the Mr Sutton recently deceased was brother or nephew to Wilson Sutton. The yard leading from Stramongate to that tan yard is still known as "Sutton's" yard.
