Deacon Samuel Royce Samuel Royce was born in New London, Connecticut. According to Marjorie Little Napoli's The Smith Genealogy, [Private printing, 1974, pg 151] Samuel married first to Sarah Baldwin and by her had four children: Ebenezer (b. 25 Sep 1691), Nathaniel (b. 21 Oct 1692), John (25 Apr 1694) and Mary (b. 17 Feb. 1695). Sarah must have died soon after Mary's birth as Samuel remarried in December 1695 to Hannah Benedict and by her had nine children at Wallingford, Connecticut, the fourth being Abel.

In "An Historic and pictorial description of the town of Meriden, Connecticut and the men who have made it" [by Chas. B Gillespie & Geo. M. Curtis, Journal publishing co., 1906, pg 146-147] Samuel was selected as the first deacon of the Church at Meriden on December 14, 1729. He and Hannah lived in the southeast part of the parish.
