Who is father of Susannah (Eves or Ives) Hancock?

+3 votes
Susannah (Ives or Eves), ( https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Ives-203 ) was married about 1690, Burlington Co., New Jersey, as the 2nd wife of Timothy Hancock.  She is currently listed as a daughter of John Ives and Hannah Merriman (as often found in online trees).  But there is no evidence that I can find that anyone in this Ives family left Connecticut and settled in New Jersey.
     It makes more sense to me that she is Susannah Eves, daughter of John Eves ( https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Eves-250 ) who actually settled in Burlington Co., New Jersey.  Is there any evidence that verifies Susannah's father (as John Ives or John Eves) one way or the other?

The following source apparently has information concerning this question, but I don't know if it is available online:

Gen. Column of the " Boston Transcript", 1906-1941: 23 Sep 1903, 6677

This book gives her surname as Ives, but that might very well be incorrect.

"Mark Stratton lived in Evesham Township, near the present town of Medford, New Jersey. October 8, 1713, he married Ann Hancock, daughter of Timothy and Susannah (Ives) Hancock. His marriage is found on the Haddenfield monthly meeting records."

A Book of Strattons, p. 248

I'd support disconnecting her from current parents, as it would be beyond odd for a daughter to convert to Quakerism and move on her own to another state. If you tag this question with quakers other project members might weigh in.

I agree, and I disconnected her from the Ives parents of Connecticut.  I have now connected her as probable daughter of John Eves (Eves-250) and wife Dorothy.  Susannah was apparently born about 1668-1671, after her parents left Flower/Flore, Northamptonshire, and moved to the nearby town of Northampton (her mother Dorothy Eves, a Quaker, appears to have died there in 1696).  Susannah was likely an immigrant to New Jersey with her brother Thomas (and sister Dorothy) in 1677 (or shortly thereafter).
