Henry Samson
Birth: Jan. 15, 1604
Bedfordshire, England
Death: Dec. 24, 1684
Massachusetts, USA

Henry SAMSON was baptized 15d 1m 1603/04 in Henlow, Bedfordshire, England and emigrated to Massachusetts at age 16 coming on the Mayflower with his maternal uncle & aunt Edward & Agnes (COOPER) TILLEY who had no children of their own and both of whom did not survive the first winter at Plymouth (1620/21). He married Ann PLUMMER 6d 2m 1635/36 at Duxbury, Massachusetts and wrote his will 24d 12m 1684 at Duxbury, Plymouth Co, Massachusetts.

For Henry's parents, sibilings and maternal ancestry see:
Leigh, Robert Ward. "English Ancestry of Seven Mayflower Passengers: Tilley, Sampson and Cooper," The American Genealogist Vol 52 #4 (10m 1976), p 198-209.

For further information on Henry's paternal ancestry see:
Leigh, Robert Ward. "Henry Sampson's Paternal Grandfather," The American Genealogist Vol 56 #3 (7m 1980) p 141-143.

Note that the proper spelling of Henry's surname is SAMSON without the "P" thus just as the Scriptural name. Later descendants did add the "P" to the name so when searching for members of the SAMSON family be sure to use both spellings.
