Sir Edmund Sutton (1425 – c. 1485) was a Knight of Dudley Castle and Gatescombe. Sutton was born in Dudley, the eldest son of John Sutton, 1st Baron Dudley, KG, and his wife Elizabeth, daughter of Sir John Berkeley.[1]

Edmund married Joyce Tiptoft, daughter of John Tiptoft, 1st Baron Tiptoft by Joyce de Cherleton[2] (daughter of Edward Charleton, 5th Baron Cherleton), ultimately coheir to the baronies of Cherleton and Tiptoft. She transmitted to the Dudley family the quarterings of Tiptoft, Cherleton, Holland, and that of Edmund of Woodstock, youngest son of King Edward I of England. Edmund fought alongside his father during the conflict today known as the wars of the roses and was present at the battles of St Albans, Blore Heath and Towton.

Edmund and Joyce's first son was Edward Sutton (b. 1459) who succeeded his grandfather, John Sutton, as 2nd Baron Dudley.[1]

Edmund then (c. 1465) married Matilda daughter of Thomas Lord Clifford and they had several children including Thomas Sutton of Yanwath.[3][1]

Edmund's exact date of death is not known, but was living on 6 July 1483 but died before father (who died 30 September 1487).
