Samuel Priddle
Samuel is the son of George Priddle and Mary and was baptised on the 19th of July 1675 in Tintinhull in Somerset.  He died in 1750 in Tintinhull at the age of 75. 
In this year in 1675;
  • 21st June, St Paul’s Cathedral in London under Christopher Wren begins to reconstruct after the Great Fire of London in 1666.
Mary Cooke                           end of lineage
Mary is believed to have been born in 1678 in Kingsbury Episcopi in Somerset.  She died or was buried on the 8th of September 1744 in Kingsbury Episcopi at the age of 66. 
There is a baptism for a Mary Cook, daughter of William and Joane Cook on the 14th of April 1678 in Pitney in Somerset.  Pitney is about six miles north of Kingsbury Episcopi.  It is very possible that this is our Mary.
At the age of 23 Samuel married 20 year-old Mary Cooke on the 19th of September 1698 in Somerset. 
The couple’s first child, was baptised Mary, after her mother, on the 24th of September 1699 at their house in East Lambrook in Somerset, this is from records from the Old Presbyterian Meeting House in South Petherton in Somerset.  South Petherton is about two miles south of East Lambrook.
By 1672 there were active non-conformists in South Petherton  and they built a Presbyterian Meeting House (called ‘Old Meeting House’) in 1705 and had adopted Unitarian doctrines by the 1730s.  As the christening is recorded in these records it would suggest that Samuel and Mary were Presbyterians.
Presbyterianism is a part of the reformed tradition within Protestantism, which traces its origins in Britain, particularly in Scotland.  Presbyterian churches are governed by representative assemblies of elders.  A great number of Reformed churches are organized this way.  But Presbyterian, is often applied uniquely to churches that trace their roots to the Church of Scotland, as well as several English dissenter groups that formed during the English Civil War, 1642 – 1651.   Presbyterian theology typically emphasizes the sovereignty of God, the authority of the Scriptures, and the necessity of grace through faith in Christ
The second child that can be traced from the marriage is Samuel, who was born on the 23rd of February 1703 in Kingsbury Episcopi.  Records from the Old Presbyterian Meeting House also suggest that he was christened at home on the 1st of March that year in East Lambrook. 
By now the Meeting House has been completed and the next child to be traced is George who, according to the Presbyterian records, was baptised on the 24th of April 1706.  However, the record suggests that the baptism took place at Picken Bridge.  There is a bridge called Picken Bridge just outside of East Lambrook so it’s probable that the couple are still in the village.
Two years later and the records show that another son. William was baptised on the 26th of April 1708 at their house at Picken Bridge.
It is thought that another daughter, Susannah was born in 1712 but it has not been possible to trace her.
At the age of 16 years-old it is believed that their daughter, Mary died, or was buried, on the 22nd of May 1715 in Kingsbury Episcopi.
On the 28th of February 1723 there is a record in the Register of Duties Paid for Apprentices’ Indentures for ‘Master’s Name’ Samuel Priddle of Lambrook Somerset.  Wheelwt ‘Apprentice name’ Jno. son of Jno Gerrard of Crewkerne.  This could well be our Samuel.
On the 9th of June 1729 the couple celebrated the marriage of their 26 year-old son, Samuel to 22 year-old Hannah Taylor in Crewkerne in Somerset.
On the 8th of September 1744 Mary died, or was buried, in Kinsbury Episcopi at the age of 66.  It is believed that six years later in 1750 Samuel died at the age of 75 in Tintinhull.
