SAMUEL LUCKETT was born Abt. 1650 in Kent County, England, and died July 18, 1705 in Port Tobacco, MD. He married ELIZABETH HUSSEY 1684, daughter of THOMAS HUSSEY and Johanna Porter. She was born 1667 in St. Charles County, MD, and died Abt. 1747 in Port Tobacco, St. Charles County, MD.

Samuel settled in Maryland before 1678.

Samuel was a member of the Maryland Provincial Court during 1696, he signed a Petition to the King as a member of the Provincial Court and as a Civil Officer of Charles County. Since Catholics could not hold public office indicates that he was a member of the Church of England.

At the Prerogative Court held in Charles County during 1684, "Appeared Samuel Luckett of Charles County who intermarried with the relict and administrator of John Gardiner and showeth that he never intermeddled with goods". Here proof exists of his marriage to the widow, and also for the belief that he had interfered with the estate of her deceased husband. (Harry Wright Newman)

When Samuel died his estate was valued at 829 pounds, 13 shillings, 3 pence and included 7 white indentured servants but no slaves.

Luckett and Hussey Research in Port Tobacco

His four sons were William, Samuel, Thomas Hussey, and Thomas. No known justification is apparent for the first name--William. Samuel was his namesake, while Thomas Hussey was the full name of his father-in-law. But the fact that he named his youngest son Thomas Hussey when one was already baptized Thomas is important. In those days the naming of children was significant and they were not given because they met with the fancy of the parents. One son was most assuredly named after the paternal grandfather, and it is not believed to be William. It was most likely Thomas, a name common to the Lucketts of County Kent, England.
