] ] Does the name Lady Susan mean that she was the daughter of an earl (or better)? If this is so, why does she seem so unprotected -- she doesn't appear to have any family connections at all.
If the title were only due to her marriage then she would be Lady Vernon. She must have already been Lady Susan before the marriage. So, she probably was from a high-ranking family. As to why she had not protectors, perhaps her family either died off, or they went bankrupt.
