Samuel Spencer was born in that part of the town of Middletown which lay east of the "Great River," October 20, 1744, and was baptized the following day.

February 19, 1771, he purchased in Middletown, North
Society, now the town of Cromwell, for £88, two and one half acres of land, bounded north on land of Amos Savage, east on highway, south and west on land of Nathaniel Riley, with one half of the house thereon,' and six years later he purchased the other half of the house, and the same quantity of land adjoining on the south. This property is believed to have been his homestead, and is situated on the west side of Main Street, and is the second house south of the one owned and occupied for many years by
Capt. Edward Savage. The Spencer house had a gambrel roof, but within a few years has been very much altered and its appearance greatly changed.

Samuel Spencer married, in Middletown (Upper Houses),
May 23, 1771, Martha Eells, born December 12, 1743, daughter of Nathaniel and Alice (White) Eells of Middletown.

At the annual town meeting, held December 13. 1784, he was elected to the office of tythingman, surveyor of highways in 1786, 1787, and 1788, grand juror in 1790; and from 1792 to 1806. Both inclusive, he was elected leather sealer.

Samuel Spencer died in Middletown October 12, 1818, only lacking a few days of being 74 years old. Martha (Eells) Spencer died February 19, 1821, aged 77.
