Samuel was baptised in the church of Windsor CT '5 mo 3th anno 1640" [July 3, 1640]. He returned to England with his father at the time of the Cromwell War. He did not return to New England until he was 21. This coincided with the escape of the regicides, Whalley & Goff, who took refuge in West Haven & Milford CT. It is assumed that Samuel went there (instead of Dorchester or Windsor) because he came as a bodyguard to these two judges, now exiles, with a price on their heads. He built the Eells-Stow house still in Milford to hide these men.
He married Anna Lenthal of Newport RI & they had nine children.
