Samuel Huggins Brief Bio

 

Samuel Huggins was of English origin, on of the third generation in this country. His ancestors lived in Greenland, NH., near what was called The Parade. His father was John Huggins, moved from Greenland to Wakefield and located near Huggins brook as early as 1790.  In the Wakefield he made home and married Anna Mordough, of Wakefield.

Samuel was a very self-reliant youth. He left home when he was a boy going from Wakefield, NH to Wenham, MA. Here he ended up for several years doing farm work. In 1817 he married Sally L. Wyatt, of Wenham. She too was of the English decent, her father coming from England in the latter part of the eighteenth century. After married they moved to Wolfeborough and purchased what is know known as the Deacon Wormwood farm. He paid one thousand silver dollars that he had saved from his earning for this purpose. On this homestead, their ten children were born, and here the parents lived, died and were buried.

Samuel Huggins was a man of some size. He was more than six feet tall and well proportioned. He was somewhat slow, contemplative turn of the mind; could frequently be seen walking with his hands clasped behind him, absorbed in thought. He was conservative by nature. His religion was Methodist and his home was always open to the circuit rider as on horseback he went through the towns of Wolfeborough and Tuftonborough.
