Samuel Priddle
Samuel is the son of Samuel Priddle and Mary Cooke and was born on the 23rd of February 1703 in Kingsbury Episcopi in Somerset.  It appears that he was baptised at home in East Lambrook in Somerset according to records from the Old Presbyterian Meeting House in South Petherton in Somerset on the 1st of March that year.  Samuel died in 1774 and was buried on the 3rd of April in Kingsbury Episcopi, at the age of 71. 
In this year in 1703;
  • 26th to 29th November, an Atlantic Hurricane ravages southern England and the English Channel, killing 8000, mainly at sea;
  • 30th November, Isaac Newton is elected president of the Royal Society in London.
From The National Gazetteer of Great Britain and Ireland (1868) Transcribed by Colin Hinson © 2003
"SOUTH PETHERTON, a parish, post and market town in the hundred of South Petherton, county Somerset, 5 miles E. of Ilminster, 5 N.W. of Crewkerne, and 3 S.W. of Martock station on the Yeovil branch of the Bristol and Exeter railway. It is situated at the bridge over the river Parret, or Pedder, from which the parish takes its name, and on which are several corn-mills. It contains the tythings of Compton-Durvill, South Harp, and Over Stratton. A portion of the inhabitants are employed in the manufacture of coarse linen, dowlas, sail-cloth, and kid gloves. The soil consists of clay and loam upon a subsoil of marlstone. The town, which is ancient, is stated by Camden to have been the residence of Ina, King of the West Saxons. It comprises three principal streets, which uniting form a triangle. Courts-leet for the manor and hundred are held in October."
By 1672 there were active non-conformists in South Petherton and they founded a Meeting House in 1688 and built a Presbyterian Meeting House (called the ‘Old Meeting House’) in 1705.  By the 1730s they had adopted Unitarian doctrines.  As the christening is recorded in these records it would suggest that Samuel and Mary were Presbyterians.  Earliest baptismal records kept by Reverend Bulstrode from 1694 – 1725.  There is a gap in the records until 1747 when there is a second baptismal register from 1747 – 1767 and then another register from 1786 to 1837 when the registers were sent to London and deposited in what are now the National Archives.  In 1837 Rev. David Richards recorded that he had kept records since 1780.  No records survive after 1837.  There was a burial ground at the Meeting House but no burial records survive.
Samuel married Hannah Taylor on the 9th of June 1729 in Crewkerne in Somerset.  Crewkerne is about eight miles south-west of East Lambrook.
The couple’s first child, Ann was born or baptised on 17th of May 1730 in Kingsbury Episcopi.
The next child that can be traced is Samuel who was born in 1734 in Kingsbury Episcopi, sadly he died on the 17th of April 1735 in South Petherton and was buried ten days later on the 27th in Kingsbury Episcopi at the age of one.
Just over a month after they buried Samuel and the couple baptised another son, John on the 1st of June 1735 in Kingsbury Episcopi.  The following year the couple celebrated the birth of another son, Henry who they baptised on New Year’s eve in Kinsgbury Episcopi.  Tragically the couple suffered the death of another child in his infancy when Henry died three months later on the 20th of March 1737.
The following year they had another son who they baptised Henry, on the 9th of April 1738 in Kingsbury Episcopi.
The couple’s 20 year-old John married 20 year-old Hannah Vagg who were married on the 11th of February 1755 in Kingsbury Episcopi.  Both John and Hannah signed the banns by their marks which suggests that they were illiterate.  Unfortunately it is believed that Hannah died in 1755.  Five years later, on the 30th of April 1760, the now 25 year-old John married 20 year-old Mary Vagg, who is assumed to be the sister of his first wife Hannah.  John was working as a shoe maker.
On the 14th of May 1764 their 26 year-old son, Henry married 20 year-old Anna Thomas.  Henry at the time of the wedding was working as a carpenter.
Three years later on the 27th of October 1767 the couple celebrated the wedding of their youngest child, 26 year-old Samuel to 25 year-old Jane Vagg in Kingsbury Episcopi.  It is likely that Jane is the sister of Hannah and Mary.
Seven years later in 1774 Samuel senior died at the age of 71.  Hannah died eight years later in 1782 at the age of 75.
