From The Storrs Family, by Charles Storrs, 1886
"Samuel Storrs, Jr. was one of the original proprietors of the town of Mansfield, CT and a member of its first church. He lived, as did his father and brother Thomas, in the South Parish, the earliest settled part of the town. He was a capable, prominent man. His comparatively early death followed by that of his wife a year later, left his children orphans while three of them were yet minors. He died intestate, and letters of administration on his estate were granted to his widow Martha and his sons Samuel and John. Upon the death of Mrs. Martha Storrs a year after that of her husband, a new distribution was made."

After the death of Samuel Storrs, his estate, after expenses, was valued at 1703 - 7s - 0d pounds.
