This Samuel Marlton is most probably the same as Samuel Sampson Marlton who was born 11 November 1801, and baptized 6 December following, at Great Livermere in Suffolk. He was the youngest son of John Marlton of Great Livermere, husbandman and parish clerk (by his second wife Frances nee Cream). He was convicted, with others, at Bury St Edmunds for "having assembled with guns & bludgeons in the parish of Cavenham with intent to kill game". Cavenham wood was part of the Cavenham estate. This Samuel seems to disappear from local records after 1823. His eldest half-brother, John Marlton of Great Livermere, was the progenitor of many descendants in the Bradford, co. Yorks area. (I am descended from their eldest sister Anne, wife of John Fenwick of Holborn, London glover).
