Sutterby is a hamlet in the East Lindsey district of Lincolnshire, England. It is situated 9 miles (14 km) south-east from Louth and 8 miles (13 km) east from Horncastle. Sutterby is in the civil parish of Langton by Spilsby.

The first recorded mention of Sutterby is in the Domesday Book; the "-by" at the end of its name indicates this place may originally have been a Viking settlement (the village is located within the area of the Danelaw).[citation needed]

In 1219 Hugh of Wells, bishop of Lincoln, granted the church at Sutterby to the Benedictine Nuns of the Priory of Chester. It seems[according to whom?] that the nuns had lost it, however, by the time of the Dissolution of the Monasteries.[citation needed] The Church of John the Baptist, is a Grade II listed building under the protection of the Friends of Friendless Churches.[1][2][3]
