The following suggests she had no issue (not sure when it was written, but it seems they did not expect any issue from Susan and John. It also suggest that Susan was dead at the time of writing (1830)?):
THOMAS AITON of Waleslie, writer to the signet, succeeded his father William, but dying soon after, the succession opened to WILLIAM AITON, who succeeded his brother Thomas, obtained from DOUGLAS duke of Hamilton, a precept of Clare constat, bearing date the 1st and 13th of July 1771, for infefting him in the lands of Waleslie, and on which infeftment followed, on the 15th April 1772 William sold the lands of Waleslie, to James HEPBURN, in 1782.
William AITON married Jean SMITH, who brought him twelve children. Of these John AITON, late of Jamaica, now portioner of Bothwell; Christian AITON, spouse of Mr DAVIDSON, seedsman in Glasgow, and Janet AITON, wife of William AITON in Paisley, are the only survivors. David AITON, and two of the name of Robert, all died young. Thomas died in Jamaica, and William in Strathaven in 1797; both without issue. John AITON, who now stands at the head of the Waleslie family, married Susan HAMILTON, daughter of Gavin HAMILTON Esquire, surgeon, Strathaven.
James AITON, late of Pollackshaws, who was second son of William AITON last of Waleslie, and died in 1822, left a son William; who failing issue of his uncle John, will be the principle representative of the AITONs of Walslie. William AITON, last of Waleslie, died in 1801.
