Deacon Samuel Fuller
Birth: Apr. 8, 1608
South Norfolk District
Norfolk, England
Death: Oct. 31, 1683
Barnstable County
Massachusetts, USA

Son of Edward & Ann (Hopkins) Fuller. Husband to Jane (Lothrop) Fuller, and father to nine children: Hannah, Samuel, Elizabeth, Sarah, Mary, Thomas, Sarah, John, and a child whose name is not recorded but who died 15 days after birth.

Samuel Fuller was a passenger on the Mayflower, along with his parents. Both parents died shortly after landing at Plymouth during the first winter and Samuel was raised by his uncle, Dr. Samuel Fuller, who was also a Mayflower passenger.

Samuel Fuller became a freeman of Plymouth in 1634. He married Jane Lothrop, the daughter of Rev. John Lothrop and his wife Hannah Howes, on April 8, 1635 in Scituate. He and his wife would raise their family initially at Scituate, before moving sometime shortly before 1641 to Barnstable.

He would live out the next forty years of his life in Barnstable and be one of the last surviving Mayflower passengers. His probate records indicate that his wife preceeded him in death. He also bequeathed an Indian slave named Joel to his son John.

Samuel Fuller is believed to be buried either on the grounds of his estate, or the ancient burial grounds on Lothrop's Hill in Barnstable (known today as Lothrop Hill Cemetery).
