He married Ruth Seon Outerbridge on 24th September 1829. She was born in Bermuda on 3rd January 1797. It is not recorded when they moved to Antigua. Ruth died on 18th March 1854 in Antigua and Samuel died nearly a year later at his home in Newgate Street, Antigua on 11th February 1855.

They had two daughters - Sarah Evelina and Burchall. Sarah was born in Antigua in 1832 and married William Henry Wilkin from Montserrat in 1851. Her sister married Adam Vorch and then (we think) John Richard Wilkin of Montserrat.
