    Samuel went to ells, Me., previous to 1698, probable as Chaplain to the garrison stationed there. In the town records of 1698 he is mentioned as a minister of the town. March 17, 1701, the town voted to settle Mr. emery as their regular minister and "to give him yearly 45 pounds to be paid one half in good merchantable provisions as follows: Wheat at 5 shillings a bushel; Indian corn at three shillings a bushel; rye at three shillings a bushel; pork at three pence a pound; beef at two pence a pound and to cut and baring to his house twenty-five cords of fir wood and that he should have the use of the ministerial land." A church was organized October 29, 1701. Mr Emery was ordained October 29, 1701, the churches of Newbury, Dover, Portsmouth and York being invited to assist. In 1716, the people being poor in consequence of the war, Mr. Emery relinquished all that was due, being a large part of the amount allowed him as salary. After this his people raised his salary to eighty pounds and directed all mill rents to be paid to him and built a study for his wife. The latter years of his life were disturbed by some troublesome matters. He was charitable and of a quiet temperament, performing his duty without ostentation, with zeal and courage fulfilling in an eminent degree the apostolic precept "as much as in you lieth live peaceable with all men."
