Summary : There was a royal residence at Sutton in Chiswick for about 20 years between 1396-1415, but the history of the estate in which it stood is obscure, and its location is unknown. It stood within a moat which contained a hall, chapel, two chambers with two solars above, and a cellar with two solars above. The royal accounts indicate that the works were quite substantial. The buildings were complete by 1403, for the king often stayed there on his way to and from Windsor. In 1415, Henry ordered the buildings to be demolished and to use the materials elsewhere, mainly at the new palace at Sheen.
