Samuel Hall was baptized 21 May 1648 in New Haven, the son of John Hall and Jeanne Woolen. He married Hannah Walker in May 1668.

From the Boardman Ancestry:
"In 1670, he removed to Wallingford and became one of the founders of that town, with his father, John Hall, and his brothers, John and Thomas. Here he shared in all the experiences of a new settlement, receiving his proportion of the various divisions of land. He drew one of the home-lots that were laid out in 1689 and probably lived there. 'He owned much land in the vicinity of Meriden, several hundred acres over in Cheshire and considerable tracts in New Haven. He had bought Thomas Judd's 'propriety' in Waterbury. He had erected a mill in Wallingford where he sawed lumber and manufactured the wooden dishes which in those days adorned the settlers' tables.'"
"In King Phillip's War, Samuel Hall is numbered among the garrison at Punkapauge, and he became, in 1696, Lieutenant of the trainband, being made Captain in 1704. He was also chosen one of the Deacons of the church in 1716, the record being that 'Capt. Hall, Sr., shall sit in the deacon's seat, and Capt. Hall, Jr., in the first pue.' He was also Deputy to the General Court in 1698 and at several sessions later. It is evident that he was one of the most prominent and highly honored men in the town."

NOTE: He was often referred to as Capt. Samuel Hall, however, I have chosen to call him "Deacon" since that's what is on his gravestone.
