Susan Le Masurier (nee Marrett) was born in St Clements, Jersey, in around 1830. She married Clement Le Masurier on 22 December 1869, at the Independent Chapel in Halkett Place, St Helier. Susan was 39 years old when she married Clement, who was 19. Susan and Clement immigrated to New Zealand, leaving Gravesend aboard the Sussex on 16 April 1874, and arriving at Port Chalmers on 17 July 1874. 

Little else is known of Susan’s life in New Zealand. She lived with her husband in Anderson’s Bay, Dunedin, until her death on 27 January 1898, aged 68 years. Susan was active in the Salvation Army in Dunedin and her funeral was held in the Salvation Army Barracks. Her funeral notice says she was 'one of the oldest Salvationists in Dunedin'.

Clement died in 1944, aged 93 years.
