Samuel P. Brittain was born on March 9, 1750 in Middletown, New Jersey to William and Mary (Collins) Brittain. He married Sarah Bright in about 1771. They were the parents of Mary, Jeremiah, Elizabeth, William, Ellen, Amos, and Sarah. He died in April 1795 in Baltimore County, Maryland.

Samuel's mother Mary was of French descent and strongly suppored the colonies during the revolution. William however, was a devoted King's man. This division in the family influenced their children. The three youngest sons, William, James and Joseph were Tories and went to New Brunswick, Canada to fight for the crown. Nathaniel, Zeboeth and Samuel fought for the Colonies in the New Jersey forces.
