Note: The Susannah Hancock, who married Andrew Griscom, was NOT from the Hancocks/Chambless families of Salem Co. as some believe.

Susannah was the daughter of John and Mary (Gurnell) Hancock of Evesham Township, Burlington Co. NJ. She married Andrew Griscom at the Chester Meeting in July of 1737.[1][2][3][4]

Her widowed mother had married George Matlack. Per Asa Matlack it was "a great wedding" on account of "the splendid entertainment.”[5].
