He According to 'Genealogy of the Suddarths/Sudderths of Virginia and Western NC' by John Edward Phillips: 'Members of this family appear in the early Eighteenth Century in the northern neck of the colony of Virginia....It is probable lowland Scottish in origin although many are found in the Liverpool area of Lancashire. The name derives from 'Suddart', a colloquial form of 'Souldart', meaning a soldier, from the Norman-French. The spelling of the name has varied greatly; the most common form in Colonial Virginia was 'Suddarth'. The most frequent variations now found are 'Sudduth' and Sudderth'.

NOTES: The descendancy to William Suddarth is not proven conclusively. Several Suddarth researchers show variations in the direct line to William; some show William's father as Thomas Suddarth, others James. The names James, William, and Thomas occur frequently from generation to generation, which has caused understandable confusion.

a. He migrated to Goochland County (later Albemarle) sometime before 17 May 1743, when he is recorded as purchasing 300 acres there. He later sold 200 acres of this land to his son, James, on 8 May 1750, reserving the remaining 100 acres for his son, Lawrence. It was around this time that he removed to Amherst County, Virginia, where his will, dated 5 Apr 1672, was recorded. He mentions sons James, William, and Lawrence, daughters Sarah Denny, Agnes Willibey (Willoughby), Charity Tate, Elizabeth Ray, and Mary Sudarth. Wife Partlow Mills had predeceased him. Her unusual given name likely indicates her connection to the surname Partlow, which occurs in early Stafford County and surrounding areas of northeastern Virginia. SOURCES: Suddarth.

Sarah's mother, Jane, married Thomas GREGG after the death of Thomas ELLZEY. Her will written in 1720 names a grandson Simon THOMASIN and her daughter Sarah THOMASIN. Sarah had married John THOMASIN and apparently was still married to him in 1720. If Sarah ELLZEY THOMASIN married Henry SUDDUTH, it was after this date.
