Sutton is a civil parish in the District of Rochford in Essex, England. It is located between the River Roach and the adjoining Borough of Southend on Sea, and includes the Hamlet of Shopland. It has a population of 127, the smallest in the District, although at the time of the Domesday Book it had a flourishing village with its own market and fair.

The area is known locally as Sutton with Shopland. The civil parish of Shopland was amalgamated with Sutton in 1933. When Shopland Church was demolished following bomb damage, artifacts were removed and went to Sutton Church and others. Shopland churchyard is rededicated every year.

Sutton Road (B1015) is approximately 3 miles (5 km) long and runs from the Anne Boleyn Public House on Southend Road in Rochford to Southchurch Road in Southend on Sea.

Sutton with Shopland is rural with large farms, and is bordered by industrial estates on its northern (Purdeys Industrial Estate) and southern (Chandlers Way/Temple Farm Industrial Estate) borders.
