William Richard Sutton

Categories: Benefactor

William Richard Sutton

Born Kennington, Lambeth. Self-made millionaire. His distribution company had purpose-built premises in Golden Lane, EC. He had no children of his own. Died Hove, buried Norwood Cemetery. His will left the modern day equivalent of £80 million to found a charitable trust to provide 'model dwellings and houses for occupation by the poor of London and other towns and populous places in England'.

The Sutton Dwellings plaque, 1924, is much more pleasing than the modern Sutton Housing Trust plaque at the Old Street roundabout.
