He was cornet under Major John Mason, in the Pequot War; ensign in a train band in Hartford, ct., July, 1678; one of the patentees of the town of Colchester, Ct., in 1707, and commanded a company in the expedition against Canada, in 1711 . He was also at one time marshal of the Connecticut Colony. His father, Jonathan, was one of first proprietors of Hartford.

   amuel may have assisted his mother with taking care of an inn. He was a member of the militia. In October, 1698, he was commissioned Ensign of the North Train Band at Hartford. In July 1705, he sold land in Hartford to his brother, Thomas Gilbert of Boston, mariner. He sold the inn property in Hartford to Capt. Caleb Williamson. About the same time he leased to William Worthington a place on the highway running south from Wyllys Street in Hartford. Worthington bought the property in 1709 and kept an inn there until he moved to Colchester in 1717.
   Perhaps about 1706, Ensign Gilbert moved his family to Colchester. In May 1707, he was confirmed Captain of the Train Band in Colchester. In 1709 he was Captain of a company in Colonel William Whiting's regiment in an expedition to Canada.
   April 8, 1724, Capt. Samuel Gilbert, then of Lyme but late of Colchester, sold to Joseph Otis of Scituate, MA, "all my farm in Colchester, 280 acres." In the same month he gave or sold land to his son, Nathaniel Gilbert and moved to Paugwonk, within the limits of Lyme. Paugwonk was partly in colchester, partly in Lyme and became the town of Salem in 1803.
