Susanna was likely born about 1635. She was a married woman when she died, but does not appear to have had any children. Her husband died just a month before she did. His will gives a few clues to family relationships:

6 FEB 1663 - James Billingsly, planter of Calvert Co., calls Walter Carr his brother & gives him the choice of one of my best cows. His brother Thomas Billingsly all his best cattle. Cousins in Rappahanock whose names cannot be put in writing one cow whenever they demand. His wife, Susanna, was executor. [1]

Susanna Ewen Billingsley left a very complete will that gives a lot of information about her family relationships.

Ewen-242 and Ewen-201 appear to represent the same person because: Same name, same husband. The vitals on -201 are incorrect.
