The following pages summarise what the village's History Group has found out about the village's history, starting with its prehistory.

We start with six snapshot views of life in the village: Bronze/Iron Age, Roman and Saxon, Medieval (pre-Inclosure), post-Inclosure, after the 1925 Sale of the Manor, and after the closure of the last farming operation in the village. Further down, there is a summary of the families that have owned the Manor of Sutton Poyntz, followed by observations on the importance of water to the village economy. Towards the end, there are pages on businesses, the church, families living in the village, and some occasions when Sutton Poyntz hit the news.
