  • Name Samuel APPLETON  [1, 2
    • He was of royal and noble descent from Henry I Beauclerc, King of England from 1100-1135. Samuel was apprenticed on 16 July 1604 to Samuel Doughty of the Drapers' Company, London. He and Judith lived in the family home at Holbrook Hall, where their first five children were baptized. They moved sometime after 1625, possibly in Groton or Combs or Milden or Monks Eleigh, where they held lands in each of these locations. He became interested in the Puritan community and had planned to leave England in 1630 with the Winthrop fleet, but came later. Samuel became a freeman 25 May 1636 and was Deputy at the General Curt on 17 May 1637. Samuel served on the Grand Jury in 1641. He was a deputy to the General Court from 1656 to 1664 with the title of "Lieutenant," and thereafter as "Captain." He was a member of the Armory and was a gentleman and amiger (one entitled to bear heraldic arms.) [1]
