    Notes 
    • John SAMPSON was a member of the Devon South Militia. The following dates show his service record: 28th June 1803 he joined in Plymouth; Jan 1804 - June 1804: Plymouth; July 1804 - Sept 1805: Bristol; Sept 1805-Sept 1806: Liverpool; Sept 1806 - Dec 1806: Portsea; Dec 1806 - Sept 1809: Ottery St. Mary; Sept. 1809 - March 1810: Exeter;
      March 1810 - June 1811: Chatham, Kent.

      On 28 June 1811 he signed up for service in Canada. His name appears as John SAMPSON, 5-7 3/4 in height; age 33 at enlistment, described as "fresh complexion; grey eyes, brown hair". Born Winckley, Devon; Labourer. Attested at Rochester, 28 June 1811 for "Life". By whom enlisted, "vol. South Devon".

      [Given this particular information we can safely say that John was most likely baptised at Winkleigh on 4 May 1778, the son of William SAMPSON and Grace JOSELING, who married on 5 April 1776. Grace SAMPSON of Hollacomb buried 3 October 1843 aged 91; William SAMPSON buried 18 Aug 1833 of Hollacomb aged 81. This line has now been pushed back several generations by J. Sampson.] Anne Brooks [2, 4]
