Nothing is known of Samuel's early life. He married a woman called Martha and they set up home in Litton. Their first (known) son, George, was born there in 1747 (1), followed by a daughter, Elizabeth, in 1750 (2). Their son George died in 1752 (3), and then they had twin sons, another George, and Joseph, in 1753 (4). For the second time, their son George died young, this time at only about a week or so old (5). Their youngest child, Mary, was born in 1755 (6), but she too died young in 1758 (7).

His wife, Martha, died in 1765 (8). Five years later, by which time Samuel was described as a farmer, remarried the widow Anne Howe (9). Samuel died in 1778, and was buried in Tideswell on 5th August (10). His widow, Anne, survived him by 13 years (11).
