About Susanna Jones

The circumstances of how, when or where Susannah Holbridge met and ultimately married the Rev. John Jones of Fairfield cannot be found out. Jones had been pastor at Fairfield since 1644. His first wife, Sarah, had died after giving birth to seven children. It appears that Jones' relationship to his new step-daughter Mercy was not good. By later record we see that Mercy was an outspoken person, not one to let others get the upper hand over her, and that would undoubtedly have caused friction between her and a Puritanical minister such as John Jones. Maybe Jones thought that the influence of a respected man such as the Rev. Gershom Bulkeley would be good for Mercy, and we find that Mercy did go to live in Bulkeley's home in New London for a time. Later Rev. Bulkeley wrote to his nephew that he found Mercy's behavior while she was with him to have been "blameless and inoffensive." (Rev. Jones and Rev. Bulkeley were related by marriage. Jones' eldest daughter Sarah married Gershom Bulkeley's brother Thomas, and their son Joseph was the recipient of the 1696 letter.)
