Susanna Parr was a religious apologist and polemicist: that is, once only, in 1659, when provoked by personal controversy within her former Independent congregation, she put an assertive self-defence in print.
SP, married with at least one child by the early 1650s, was most likely born before about 1630.
12 May 1659 SP defended herself in Susanna's Apologie against the Elders, when Lewis Stucley, minister of her former Independent congregation in Exeter, excommunicated her as climax of a prolonged mutual enmity. Bibliographic Citation link.  scholarly note link.
SP disappears from history after the publication of her text, so there is as yet no knowing when she died.
