Susannah was probably born between 1600 and 1610, based on ages of her children. She seems to have come from the County of Suffolk, England. Her maiden name is unknown. She is too old to be the daughter of Gov. William Bradford, who was born about 1589/90, and she is too young to be his sister or aunt as Gov. Bradford's father died about 1591 and his grandfather in 1594.
She was a widow when she married Ezekial Richardson before 1630. They came to Massachusetts with Winthrop, about 1630. They resided first at Boston, then Charlestown, Massachusetts, later at Woburn. The Richardsons had seven children born between 1632 and 1643.
She was a healer after she arrived in the Charlestown, Massachusetts area about 1630.
After Ezekial passed away in 1647, Susannah Richardson married Henry Brooks before 1651  There are several deeds that establish her marriage to Brooks.
Susanna Bradford Richardson Brooks passed away on September 15, 1681.
