Captain Samuel Legg, Esq., (ca. 1640-10 Jan 1705/6) is the son of the immigrant John Legge (ca. 1610-5 Jan 1673/4) and Elizabeth Melinda Cole (abt 1608-abt 1698). Samuel was a Mariner out of Boston. Upon his death, he was buried in the Granary Burial Ground in Boston; however, some years later another person was buried over him in the same grave.

He settled first in Lynn, MA; he was declared a Freeman of the Massachusetts Bay Colony on 5 May 1635; and he pursued the career of a Mason. John and Elizabeth had four known children: Samuel, John, Daniel, and Ann Mary.
Samuel married Deliverance Thayer (b. abt 1647) about the year 1668. They had seven known children:
