Samuel arrived as a young lad of 16 and caught the eye of the explorer John Howe working for him as a labourer and helping with the exploration of the Hunter Valley, for which he received the grant of a block of land.

He married Catherine Spalding, born in the colony daughter of Irish convict Bryan Spalding, Spollon or Spaldon. The pair produced six children, lived the Patrick Plains area around Maitland and died and were buried in the Branxton Cemetery
