The first we hear of Susanna is in 1606 when on May 5th Susanna was named as a recusant for not attending an Easter Day Church service. When Susanna was 24 years old she announced her betrothal to Dr. John Hall. Hall had settled in Stratford around 1600, where he founded a prosperous medical practice and became one of the town's leading citizens. The wedding took place on June 5th 1607. Susanna's marriage to the noted physician must have pleased Anne and William enormously. Evidence of the esteem that Shakespeare held for Dr. John Hall and his marriage to his daughter was that Shakespeare appointed John and Susanna executors of his will. (Dr. Hall and Susanna inherited and moved into New Place after Shakespeare's death). Susanna gave birth to a baby girl eight months after her wedding to Dr. John Hall. Anne and William's granddaughter, Elizabeth, was baptized February 21, 1608 at Holy Trinity Church in Stratford. William and Dr. Hall also had mutual business interests as they were known to have traveled to London on business concerning Stratford tithes.

Susanna Hall, Shakespeare’s elder daughter, was buried on July 16, 1649, according to the Holy Trinity Church parish register. Next to the entry, an “X” added by a later hand highlights its significance. She had died five days earlier on July 11, aged 66, and was buried in the chancel of the parish church. Her status in the local community is indicated by the prefix “Mrs.” Her cause of death is not known but the unusually high mortality rate that summer suggests an epidemic of some sort.
