The name "Sutpen" appears in the novel's list of the "new names" that arrive in Yoknapatawpha during the early life of the settlement (8), and "a man named Sutpen," no first name, is particularized a bit more fully when the novel mentions how he acquires a tract of land where he seems "bent on establishing" an "ambitious and gradiose" plantation (30). But no other member of his several families appears or is mentioned.
