Susanna Wheelright Hutchinson was born circa 1564 in Lincolnshire, England and died 1646 Wells, York County, Maine of unspecified causes. She married Edward Hutchinson (1564-1631) 1585 in Lincolnshire, England.
I find nothing to support that Susanna's maiden name was Wheelright other than it has been copied so many times in various records. There are no records to support here birth. The Wheelright name is mostly associated with the famous Colonial American preacher that married her daughter, John Wheelright (c1592-1679), for she lived with that family a great time after being widowed.
