      ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


      Robert Smythe esq. was of Bounds in Bidborough and of Sutton and married the lady Dorothy Sidney relict of Henry earl of Sunderland by whom he had one son Robert Smythe esq. of Sutton-atHone who was governor of Dover castle and died in 1695 possessed of this manor and Brook-place leaving Catherine his wife daughter of William Stafford of Blatherwick in Northamptonshire surviving and two sons Henry and William (fn. 4) to whom this manor and seat descended as heirs in gavelkind.

      In the 10th year of king William she as guardian to her two insant sons obtained an act of parliament for vesting this manor and seat among others in this county in trustees to sell the same who accordingly in 1699 conveyed them to Sir John Le Thieullier of London.

      This family of Le Thieullier appears to have been of good account in France as well as Germany for some generations before they settled in England which is supposed to have been in the reign of queen Elizabeth when they fled hither to avoid the persecution in those parts on account of religion. Among the names of such French as fled to Rye in Suffex upon the massacre of the Protestants in France in 1572 are the names of Le Tellier and Tellier; and in a list of others in 1576 is that of Gyllam Tulyer. John de Thieullier was a merchant of London and died at Lewisham in 1679 leaving by Jane de la Forterie his wife eight children; of whom John le Thieullier the eldest son was a wealthy merchant of London and served the office of sheriff there in 1674 when he was knighted. He was the purchaser of this estate and dying in 1718 was buried in a vault in Greenwich church-yard over which there is a monument erected to his memory; on which are his arms Argent a chevron gules (fn. 5) between three parrots heads couped vert; having by his will been a good benefactor both to Christ's and St. Thomas's hospitals. He left by Anne his wife daughter of Sir William Hooker alderman and afterwards lord mayor of London two sons John Lethieullier esq. of Aldersbrooke in Essex; and William Lethieullier esq. of Beckenham and of Sutton-place and three daughters. William Lethieullier the second son possessed Sutton manor; he left by his first wife Mary daughter of Nicholas Manning a Hamburgh merchant John afterwards of Sutton-place; Manning of Lewisham; Mary who married Thomas Scrimpsour gent. and William who was of London citizen and grocer. His second wife was Mary Sarkeld of Cumberland by whom he had one son Samuel of Beckenham; and two daughters Letitia married to Tho. Clerke counsellor at Law; and Leonora to Mr. Holden.

      John Lethieullier esq. the eldest son on his father's death in 1733 became possessed of this manor and seat. He married twice but had issue by neither of his wives; and dying in 1760 gave by his will all his estates and effects to his wife Anne who survived him; and she after some litigation in chancery together with Mary Browne who had contested her right to these manors and estates but had compromised the same by their deed in 1766 conveyed them to Nathaniel Webbe esq. of Taunton in Somersetshire; who the next year parted with Sutton-place and other lands belonging to these estates but the manor of Sutton continued some time longer in his possession and till it was sold to Mr. John Mumford of Sutton-place who died in 1787 and by his will bequeathed it after his wife's death to his second son John Mumford esq. of St. John's the present owner of it.
