The 17-year-old, who is said to be Suzan’s daughter and was found alongside her, has not been named.
Another young woman was seen “wrapped in a blanket” at the scene with police consoling her, neighbours said.
The bodies of the pair were discovered on December 29, in New Forest.
Police said their deaths are being treated as “unexplained” but not suspicious.
MailOnline today named Suzan as the mum, and said sources close to the investigation confirmed her death had been reported to the coroner.
The sources also said an inquest would be opened at a later date.
Neighbours said Suzan had two daughters and a son, and that she had opened up about her husband dying.
The family did not stay at the five-bedroom New Forest house permanently, but often visited to carry out renovations, the residents said.
Records show the large detached property was sold for £620,000 in January 2022.
One neighbour said: “We did not really see her that often, but when they bought the house she told us her husband had recently died and the family wanted to move to the country to start afresh.
“The house needed completely renovating and they were doing it with the help of local builders as well as work themselves.
“They were not here that often but it is just awful to think what has happened.
“We asked the police if we should be worried with two bodies being found and they would not say anything.
“The police were not here very long, so there is no investigation.”
Hampshire Constabulary previously said: “We were called just after 1.45pm on Thursday December 29 to a report of the bodies of a 17-year-old girl and 42-year-old woman having been found at an address in Shorefield Road, Downton.
“Their family has been informed and a file will be prepared for the coroner.”
