About Susan Brayne

In 1684 Susan, along with her brother William and sister Ursula, was sent to England for her education & never returned to Virginia. She lived with her maternal grandparents, Warham & Susanna Horsmanden, in Essex, England.

Susan married John Brayne after her return to England, and to this union at least 3 children were born: Susan; William; and John Brayne, Jr. 

Two children were sent to live with her brother William Byrd II at Westover Plantation, VA just before her death. I don't know if it was 2 of the above listed, or 2 others, un-named. : Find A Grave Memorial # 43688974.
