Biographies

Samuel was shown on his trial record as a 'native of Wolverhampton'. There are several candidates but no clear identification of his birth (around 1803-4) or parents. He arrived in Van Diemans Land in December 1820, and spent his term on 'public works' and as a servant to J. Sellinger of Clarence Plains. His term expired in June 1827. He was married 3 times: to Judith Smith in 1831 (2 daughters), who was drowned with one of their daughters; to Mary Ann Hurst (daughter of convict William Hurst: Shipley 1820) in 1835 (5 sons & 4 daughters); and to Josephine Mathews in 1873. Although listed in a convict muster as a locksmith, he became Superintendent of Shoemakers at Port Arthur and later set up on business in Hobart as a bootmaker. Although married in the Church of England, he was a founding member of the Methodist Church in Hobart. He died in Hobart in 1885.
