About Susannah Whittridge Colby

The 1630 ship manifest for the Arabella clearly shows Anthony Colby’s wife as Mrs. Susanna Haddon Colby.

The connection is quite obvious that (1) Anthony and Susanna were already married before they left England

and (2) that Garrett Haddon and Susanna Haddon were related. Best guess is that they were brother and sister.

Susannah was born in 1610 in London, Middlesex, England. She died on 8 JUL 1689 at Salisbury, Essex County, Massachusetts. She has Ancestral File Number 8JDC-PQ.

It has been speculated that Susannah's surname may be Haddon, Nutting or Sargent, but as of this date it is pure speculation. No one has been able to prove who she really is.

================

Near the end of her life, Susannah Whittredge was described by the selectmen of Amesbury as: an anchient and helpless widow belonging to the town of Amesbury... notwithstanding a comfortable and competent maintenance being allowed unto her out of the estate of her former deceased husband Anthony Coleby...yet she being a woman attended with many infirmities both of body and mind, is utterly incapable of doing anything that may contribute to her livelihood or comfortable subsistance ... she living alone, wanting such help and attendance as may be convenient, continually laboring under such infirmities of body as usually attend old age often times sick and many times destitute of divers necessaries and always of the conveniencies of life, any otherwise than she is supplied by one or two of her children, whose families in the meantime want the same at home, and very much defective and decayed in her understanding ..., September Term 1682 [EQC 8:388] The court ordered that her sons, Samuel, Isaac and Thomas Colby, provide for her and sell what land was necessary to maintain her from the Colby estate [EQC 8:388]

The inventory of the estate of "the widow Susannah Whitridge who deceased July the 8th or thereabouts in the year of Grace 1689" was taken 9 September 1691 and totalled £151 15s. including real estate valued at £143: "5 acres of tillage"; "half the ferry meadow"; "a lot in the division called the great farms"; "a lot of upland in a division called [illegible]"; "a lot in the ox pasture division"; "a lot near the north meadow"; "a lot in Bugsmore division"; and "a lot in the great swamp" [EPR 304:400].

The final division of the estate of Susannah Whitridge on 5 August 1700 allowed a double portion to "Samll Coleby Eldest [surviving] Son" £1. 12s. 6d., and equal shares of 16s. 3d. to: "the children of John Colby..."; "the children of Isaac Colby..."; "the children of Thomas Colby..."; "the children of Sarah Colby..."; "the children of Rebeckah Colby..."; and "the children of Mary Colby..." [EPR 307:176-77].

MARRIAGE: By 1633 Susanna (_____) Waterman, widow of _____ WATERMAN of Boston (land "at first was granted to [blank] Waterman who deceased. Anthony Colbye married his widow & they two sold the said land unto James Pennyman..." [SLR 11:176-77]); she married (3) by 1663 William Whitridge (petitions as Susanna "Whittredge formerly Colbie" to sell real estate 28 March 1682 [EPR 1:409]); she died 8 July 1689.

Susannah (possibly 1616 - 8 July 1689) was three times a widow. She lived in the Macy-Colby house until her death. Her maiden name and parents are not known; but it is highly likely that she was Jarrett Haddon's sister. She had to defend her homestead against the claim of Thomas Macy from whom it had been purchased; but later he denied the sale and tried to expel the widow by legal process. He was unsuccessful. In 1678, her son Thomas was deeded half of all the lands remaining in consideration of services rendered the widow, and in 1682, the homestead was deeded to her son Samuel, who cared for her during the infirmities of old age.
