Capt. Samuel Adams was born in Plymouth, 26 June 1742, the son of Capt. Francis Adams and Keziah Atwood. His mariner father died in Jamaica when he was a child, and his mother remarried Nathaniel Little of Kingston.

He was a member of the Old Colony Club of Plymouth. At their meeting held 13 January 1773, they noted: "(being the fourth year since the institution of the Old Colony Club), with gratitude let it be acknowledged, that as a society and as individuals we have enjoyed health, harmony, and happiness without interuption, excepting the fraternal sorrow occasioned by the death of our brother Samuel Adams, which happened at Cape Nichola Mole, the fifth day of August last. The integrity and uprightness of his conduct, together with his assiduity and industry in business, rendered him a useful man in the community; and his natural facetiousness and affability, a valuable member of this club."
