The descendancy to William Suddarth is not proven conclusively. Several Suddarth researchers show variations in the direct line to William; some show William's father as Thomas Suddarth, others James. The names James, William, and Thomas occur frequently from generation to generation, which has caused understandable confusion.

a. He migrated to Goochland County (later Albemarle) sometime before 17 May 1743, when he is recorded as purchasing 300 acres there. He later sold 200 acres of this land to his son, James, on 8 May 1750, reserving the remaining 100 acres for his son, Lawrence. It was around this time that he removed to Amherst County, Virginia, where his will, dated 5 Apr 1672, was recorded. He mentions sons James, William, and Lawrence, daughters Sarah Denny, Agnes Willibey (Willoughby), Charity Tate, Elizabeth Ray, and Mary Sudarth. Wife Partlow Mills had predeceased him. Her unusual given name likely indicates her connection to the surname Partlow, which occurs in early Stafford County and surrounding areas of northeastern Virginia.
