I have to withdraw my suggested identification of Susannah Hudlesey as a candidate for Susannah Carter, last wife of Thomas of Goochland Carter. I recently found that she instead married a man named William Arrington after the death of Charles Hudlesey. Susannah and her husband William Arrington in a deed [DB 3/218] dated 20 Mar 1738 sold the 100 acres on the river that was the plantation of Charles Hudlesey which was sold to Susannah by Robert Carter in 1729. This land was not part of the property on Beaverdam Creek owned by Charles Hudlesey but was in fact a dividend of the land on the James River purchased jointly by Robert Carter, Charles Huddlesey and John Webb from Tarlton Woodson and was part of the Lickinghole Survey. Two years earlier in a deed dated 19 Apr 1736 [DB 2/209] Arrington deeded 400 acres on Deep Creek to John Bibey(Bibee or Bybe) with wife Susannah relinquishing dower rights.
I continue to believe that the motivation that led Susannah Hulsey to execute the deed of gift to son Charles Hulsey when he was so young was to prevent the land from becoming the property of her new husband to be.
