Susan Elizabeth Knight was the daughter of Thomas Knight and Susan Thompson.  Susanna married Baron John Hussey Delaval of Ford Castle. Lady Delaval was aunt to the Rev. Thomas Knight, and was responsible for appointing him as Rector of St. Michael and All Angles, Ford.

This photo of the memorial for Susanna was sent to me by Lilian Caley who indicated that the picture was taken by Valerie Edwards.  Lilian stated:

"About three years age I paid a visit to St Giles church in Matlock Derbyshire. Susanna has a memorial plaque on the wall in the church. I took a photograph which did not turn out very well. The inscription on the plaque is as follows:

In this church lie the mortal remains of/ SUSANNAH ELIZABETH  relict of JOHN HUSSEY DELAVAL of Seaton Delaval and Ford Castle in the county of Northumberland she departed this life at Matlock August 29 AD 1822 aged 59 years.

( Alabaster tablet on slate surround )"
