Seeking the parents of Susannah Dunscombe, who was born c1676, probably in Bermuda, married Jonathan Ogden c1699 in New York, and died there in 1769. She could not have been a daughter of Daniel Dunscombe and Helena Swan, as sometimes alleged, because that couple married in NYC in 1696 and were of the same generation. She was probably a descendent of Thomas Dunscombe and Hannah Jadwyn, the first Dunscombe settlers in Bermuda from England, who inhabited property left to Hannah by her father, Thomas Jadwyn. She may have been a daughter of that couple's son, Samuel, by his first wife, Elizabeth Burgess, or by Abigail (lnu), his second; but Samuel's 1706 will made no mention of a Susannah. The only Susannah Dunscombe known to have been born in Bermuda in the late 17th century was a daughter of Thomas' grandson, Edward Dunscombe; but Edward's 1733 will indicated this daughter was then living unmarried and childless in Bermuda.
Susannah is probably identical with the Susanna Duncomb (sic) who immigrated to Virginia in 1694, perhaps to join Jadwyn cousins there, moving later to New York. Soon after Jonathan's death there c1746, Susannah married Thomas Sutton.
According to twice-widowed Susannah (Dunscombe Ogden) Sutton's 1765 will (proved in 1769), her six children were:
1. John Ogden (c1699-bef. 1765), who married Sarah Theale 2. Jonathan Ogden (c1700-1753), who married Wilmot 3. Susannah Ogden (c1702-1777), who married Samuel Wilson 4. Michael Ogden (c1703-1790), who married Jane Bloomer 5. Rachel Ogden (c1705-1770), who married Thomas Purdy 6. William Ogden (c1706-1783), who married Martha
