Of the report that Susan Ridley was a descendant through her father of the celebrated Bishop Ridley, the English martyr, Susan Norton, B44,126,1, writes:
"Susan Ridley's descent from the family of the English martyr is not proven as far as I know. There is a tradition that she was descended from Bishop Ridley's brother. As it happens, my aunt, Miss Elizabeth Norton, and I have been examining the Ridley papers in the hope of settling the question."
