Sutton-in-Marisco, formerly a parish church, was attached to the chancellorship to augment its revenues in 1379 and was thenceforth to count as a preb. (CPR. 1377-1381 p. 354). The papal bull of 2 Dec. 1379, approving the new arrangement, shows that Sutton-in-Marisco had been a parish church before that date (Lamb., Reg. Sudbury f. 63b). The new preb. was held by the chancellors till 1458.

In 1458, when the chancellor Hugh Tapton obtained preb. Stoke, Sutton-inMarisco was separated from the chancellorship. New arrangement approved by king 13 Nov. 1458 (CPR. 1452-1461 pp. 463-4) and by pope 25 March 1459 (CPL. XI 525).
