In the Branford Town records, Samuel is accused of "selling stroing lickers to indeans" which he acknowledged and was fined 5 shillings.

In 1666, there was a division in the church and Samuel asked his brother, John, to sell his land for him, and he and his family moved, along with the pastor and members of another congregation, to Newark, New Jersey, where they started a new church. There Samuel was living at the time of his death.
