Sir Sampson Norton, the 14th and 15th century administrator, held a number of offices in a variety of geographical locations in England, France and Wales. He was chief customer of Southampton for fifteen years from 1485, and represented the town in parliament in 1487. In 1486 he was granted an estate in Dorset by Henry VII, so it is not clear how much time he spent in Southampton. In his later years he lived at Fulham in Middlesex. He died in 1517.
