Filmer grave, East Sutton Church
Filmer grave, East Sutton Church
The Filmer grave seen here is just outside the south door of the church of St Peter and St Paul, East Sutton and next to the gate which formerly led to East Sutton Park. The gate is locked now as East Sutton Park is a women's prison.
The Filmer family was prominent in Kent, as far back as the reign of Edward II. At that time they were seated at the manor of Herst in Kent. In the reign of Elizabeth 1st, Robert Filmer purchased the estate of East Sutton. Sir Edward Filmer began to build Charlton Court before 1610 but then bought East Sutton Park to the west and decided to make East Sutton his main seat - see LinkExternal link The title became extinct on the death of the Sir Robert Marcus Filmer, the Tenth Baronet in 1916.
The grave here seems to have been initiated by Sir Edmund Filmer, Ninth Baronet, who lived from 1835 to 1886. It includes his wife and eldest daughter. See LinkExternal link
