About David Sudduth
Little is known of David Sudden (Sudduth/Sudderth/Suddath). Some sources claim that his wife's name was Marie, but records showing this have not been seen by this researcher.
He came to America abt. 1658, most likely from Scotland, and is listed in the following publication as being transported to Virginia by Col. Thomas Pettus. For transporting David Sudden (Suddath/Sudderth, etc). and 19 others, Pettus received 1001 acres of land on the Potomac in Westmoreland County, Virginia:
"Cavaliers and Pioneers", Volume I, Patent Book 4, pg 389:
COL. THOMAS PETTUS, 1000 acs. Westmoreland Co., 15 Mar 1658, p. 270, (371). Nly, upon Patomeck Cr., Ely. upon land of Sir Thomas Lunsford. Granted 10 Feb. 1652 & renewed for trans. of 20 pers: Jeninge Clauson, John Wyatt, John Harrwell, Nicholas Bond, Elizabeth Willett, Marg. Denby, Georg Huttons, Joseph Castle, James Clerke, John Doe, John Ponder, John Moodall, James Moore, Wm. Lenox, Andrew Marshall, Wm. Read, Robert Duckett, DAVID SUDDON, John Consider, Jellian Crone ( or Crons)."
Much of the information on this family is from "The Stoddard/Suddath Papers", which has a wealth of information compiled on the Suddarth/Suddath families of early Virginia. Since this is a compilation of the research of many different researchers, there are several opinions (sometimes conflicting) regarding relationships of the early Suddarth/Suddath families, based upon this publication.
