He was an infant when his father returned to England , where Samuel is said to have remained until about twenty-one years of age. He settled at Milford, Connecticut , and in 1677 was on a committee to transcribe the old records there. He held many offices, was a juror often before 1671 . He was appointed to collect the customs at Milford on wines and liquors, June 10, 1668 , and was continued in office until after 1681 . In May, 1681 , he was appointed by the town on a committee to obtain from the Indians a deed of the lands purchased by the inhabitants at various dates, and in 1685 was one of the town's representatives on a committee to establish the line between Milford and Derby . In 1681 he was appointed clerk of the county court for one term.

John Eells (Samuel's father), who migrated to Massachusetts Bay Colony from the West of England over three hundred years ago in 1632, settled in Dorchester, Massachusetts, was a freeman of the Colony and a prosperous farmer, but when the Long Parliament met in England in 1640 John Eells, that stern old Puritan, sniffed the coming battle from afar, sold all he owned for whatever price it would bring, and sailed back to England to take up arms for his religion, carrying with him his son Samuel, the "suckling child" a few weeks old. John never returned to America, but his son Samuel came back to his native Colony in 1661, and soon displayed marked ability and energy. He practiced "the notable profession of the law," and moreover was merchant, miller, selectman, Town Clerk, and often a Deputy in the General Court of Connecticut, as well as "a Major in the Regiment," fighting with distinction against the Indians in King Philip's War.

1st Eells born in America. His father John returned to England. After father's death, Samuel returned to America in 1662 (prob.) and settled in Milford, CT. EHE writes (in notes to portrait folder: "Maj. Sam'l was commissioner for purchasing lands and settling boundary lines, town clerk, capt. of training-band, frequently a member of the General Court (of CT). In King Philip's War he commanded a garrison at Dartmouth MA and served with Capt. Church under Robert Treat. [He performed notable service in his protest against the mistreatment of Indian captives by the Plymouth Colony.] He built the historic Eells-Stowe House in Milford about1670 where we presume their their seven (6?) sons and one (4?) daughter were born. His wife Anna died in Feb., 1687. He is believed to have supported regicide judges Goffe and Whalley. In 1689, he removed to Hingham MA where he was J.P., deputy to General Court 1705 and representative in 1706. He married again-- this time Sarah North (nee Bateman).... His very interesting will is on file at the Suffolk Country Registry of Wills."

"Our ancestor, Major Samuel Eells, of Hingham, Mass., spelled his name Eells. It was he who immortalized his name in denouncing the action of the Trustees of Plymouth Colony in selling the 160 Indians as slaves to the West Indies, an act only eqaal in its infamy and cruelty to that of Judas, who betrayed our Saviour for a price.

" His son, Col. Samuel Eells, of Mil- ford, was for more than forty years in employ of Connecticut provinces in various public offices; at one time secretary of Governor Leete. Nathaniel Eells, of Scituate, a son of Major Samuel, married his wife, Hannah North, an aunt of Lord North, Prime Minister of George III, during the Revolutionary War, but her children were all loyal to the Colonies. Another Nathaniel Eells, of Stonington, an ancestor of Rev. Gushing Eells, the founder of Whitman College; Samuel Eells, of North Branford, a captain in the Revolutionary War, whose father, at the time of the Lexington massacre, preached a strong sermon in favor of the Colonies, dismissed his congregation, came out of his pulpit, opened a recruiting office in the church and raised a company. They chose him as their captain. On account of ill health he declined, and they chose his son for their captain. He went through the Revolutionary War. Rev.. Edward Eells, who married Martha Pitkin, 1740, and whose son Ozias was for 29 years pastor at Barkhamsted, all spelled their name Eells. Harvey Eells, born 1801, on account of a foolish quarrel among school children, who made fun of the name and said it was squirmy, foolishly dropped one 1, and called himself Eels. Most of his descendants moved to Georgia and sided with the Rebellion, and fought against us in the Civil war. There was one notable exception, Major W. B. Eels, of Milford, of the i9th Connecticut Volunteers and id Connecticut Artillery, who was wounded and disabled at the battle of Cold Harbor, made Lieutenant Colonel, but his wounds not allowing him to return to active service, soon after the war he died from the effect of those wounds at Terryville.

" In Stonington there is a Hannah Eells Society, a branch of the Daughters of the American Revolution."
