Samuel Greenlees married his cousin, Agnes Greenlees, in December 1840. The couple had five children, including sons James (b. 1848) and Samuel (b. 1850). Agnes died at some point between 1850 and 1861, when Samuel married Isabella Ralston, by whom he had a further six children. Isabella Greenlees died in 1897 at the Greenlees family home, Hazelbank. James and Samuel Greenlees were both educated locally in Campbeltown at the United Presbyterian Academy. On leaving school Samuel joined his father working in the distillery whilst his elder brother James was an apprentice in the offices of Baird Brothers, the coal masters and ironfounders at Glasgow and Gartsherric. In 1871 both brothers moved to London where they established the firm of Greenlees Brothers at Gresham Buildings.
