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.

Maiden Name

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.


Life in England

She married Edward Hutchinson in Lincolnshire and bore him 11 children there. Two years after his death in 1632, she traveled with her family (at age 70) to New England.

Wells Maine

After the Hutchinson, Wheelright group were banished from Boston, her son William and his family went to settle Newport RI. But Susanna traveled with her daughter Mary and her husband, John Wheelright (c1592-1679) who founded several colonies further north.

The settled Wells, Maine in 1641 and she died there just a few years later (1646).
