Susanna ______ married
(1) Simon Hoyt in 1631, and
(2) Robert Bates after 25 March 1662.

Mother of seven children by her first husband (Mary, Moses, Joshua, Miriam, Samuel, Benjamin and Sarah Hoyt).

════════════════════════════════════════

She died before 1 February 1674, when Moses Hoyt, Joshua Hoyt, Samuel Hoyt, Benjamin Hoyt, Thomas Lyon (m. Mary Hoyt), Samuel Finch (m. Sarah Hoyt) and Samuel Firman (m. Miriam Hoyt) came to an agreement "concerning the distribution of the estate of our deceased mother Susanna Bates" (Stamford Land Records, volume A, page 61).

════════════════════════════════════════

There is no primary evidence discovered as yet identifying the family name of Susanna, wife of (1) Simon Hoyt and (2) Robert Bates. In particular, she is not known to have been "Susanna Smith".

A record made by the Reverend John Lothrop of Scituate, Massachusetts in 1637 listed the houses there by heads of household from 1634 to 1637. There is an entry for "The Smiths. Goodman Haits brother." No other entry in this list was prefaced by the word "the" such as "the Hoyts". All of the households in Scituate except for three, including "The Smiths", were numbered, perhaps indicating that those three were not land owners.

It is improbable that the entry in question referred to a "Mr. Smith". This otherwise unknown head of household, apparently the brother-in-law of Simon Hoyt ("Hait") of Scituate, was instead likely the town "smith" or blacksmith.
