Samuel was born in Tulliallan, Perthshire, before it was annexed into Fife about 1891.
He was a ship's carpenter and spent much of his married life at sea. In 1883 a ship's manifest shows Catherine, who had been living with her parents, sailing to Sydney, Australia, with their three children.
Evidently they lived in Fiji for several years where the three youngest were born. The family then settled in Brisbane, Queensland, where Samuel, Catherine and daughter Helen died young.
