There was an ancient parish called Sutton, which was annexed to Seaford The ancient parish church had certainly been demolished by 1840, with the foundations traceable in the "desecrated churchyard" to quote the Pigot 1840 directory.
St Luke's church is actually situated in Chyngton. The site if the ancient church is near Alfriston Road, approximately opposite Sutton Drove in what used to be the grounds of the old Sutton Place school; a site now redeveloped as housing. Sutton parish became part of St Leonard's, Seaford around the 15th century, giving rise to the full name of Seaford parish church: St Leonard's, Sutton cum Seaford.
