Notes:

Samuel's grandfather, Dr. Comfort Starr, left him a "large booke of martyrs with ye frame belonging thereunto" in his will. Samuel and Hannah married and lived in New London, CT. In 1670 Samuel tried to establish a ferry at Norwich and received land for it, but he gave it up and forfeited the grant. Hannah's father, Jonathan, had a ferry service many years before. Samuel was appointed county marshall in 1678, and probably held the office till his death. Hannah then married James Morgan and lived in Groton.
