The HATTON / HUTTON family

Sir Thomas HATTON owned the manor of Chessington.

In 1738 a survey of the lands at Chessington of one Thomas HUTTON was carried out in connection with the building of the Queen Anne Churches in London (Lambeth Palace Records, MS 2726). These are amongst papers relating to architects and officials for the project. In 1716 Richard GODFREY of the Inner Temple, Simon MICHELL of the Middle Temple (who married Charity HATTON), Charles WOOD of Lincoln's Inn and Richard HUTTON of Lincoln's Inn (elsewhere called HATTON) are also mentioned in connection with the project (MS 2732/36). Simon MICHELL and Richard HUTTON are mentioned again in 1723 (MS 2732/39-40). HUTTON, WOOD and MICHELL were also involved with building projects at Spitalfields, whilst MICHELL's son married a daughter of Sir John TASH of  London, vintner (who may have been related to the TASH family of Burford, Oxon.) Richard HUTTON was related to Thomas HUTTON of  Aldbourne, Wilts and Westminster, London.

The CRISP family

The playwrite Samuel CRISP (1707-1783) resided at Chessington Hall, whilst his sisters Mrs Sophia  GAST and Anne CRISP (spinster) both lived in Burford, Oxon. GAST was at the Great House in Witney Street and her ill suggests that she was on good terms with the LENTALL family, the local Lord's of the manor.
