Susanna Bayeux Schuyler
Stefan Bielinski

Susanna Bayeux Schuyler was born in 1704 and baptized on September 9 at the New York City Dutch Church. She was the daughter of Manhattan-based Huguenot merchant Thomas Bayeux and his wife, Maria Boudinout Bayeux.

About 1723, she married Jeremias Schuyler - a younger son of the first mayor of Albany. By 1738, their five children had been baptized in the Albany Dutch church.

These Schuylers lived in Jeremias's father's Albany house. They also had a farm located north of the city.

In June 1725, Susanna sponsored a baptism in the New York French church with her father. In 1741, she was left a share of the estate of her father who died in 1742.

"Sannake" Bayeux Schuyler died in January 1747. Her husband survived until 1753.
