Susan Riches was born 30 April 1694 in Norwich, Norfolk, England, United Kingdom to Isaac Riches (1662-1751) and Elizabeth Bush (1655-) and died 1762 Norwich, Norfolk, England, United Kingdom of unspecified causes. She married Henry Helsdon (c1700-1750) 13 May 1725 in Norwich, Norfolk, England, United Kingdom.

Susan Riches was born, most likely in 1694. Having done a study of Susan Riches baptisms in Norfolk 1690-1710 the 1694 one to Isaac and Elizabeth seems very likely the same Susan who wed Henry Helsdon in 1725. Isaac later moved to the area of Norwich that Susan wed Henry. Isaac died in 1751 and appeared to not have left a will. Henry's first wife died in 1722.

When Susan wed Henry Helsdon, Isaac Riches lived in the same area of Norwich and had done by 1721 at least, (4 years prior to Susan marrying) and no burial, or possible other marriage to a different spouse has been found that could be the 1694 Susan. Also Isaac was a weaver like Henry even though weaving was a common job in Norwich.
