    Notes 
    • Samuel, son of Moses Cleveland, spelled his name Samuell. One of the first to settle in Connecticut. He served as a soldier in King Philip's war1675/76. He held the rank of Sergeant. A petition was written to the army from his brother Moses to releasehim early as he, Moses was injured,and could not bring in the crops without Samuel's help. He was released.

      He was admitted a freeman, March 11, 1689-90. He bought land in Chelmsford, November 17, 1681, on the north side of Tadmuck Hill. He returned toWoburn in 1693 and the same year removed to Canterbury, Connecticut. The settlers had considerable trouble over the distribution of the land, andthere were numerous disputes and trials at law regarding it. At one time Samuel Cleveland, together with nearly all the prominent men in the town,was fined for "stealing loads of hay." On April 30, 1723, the land underdispute was finally apportioned to the satisfaction of all, and SamuelCleveland was among those who had the shares allotted to first settlers.
