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).
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. The Church of John the Baptist, is a Grade II listed building under the protection of the Friends of Friendless Churches.
