(5?) Samuel Wolcott, b. c. 1703 MA, d. c.1760. DNA evidence indicates that this Samuel was a descendant of Henry Wolcott, the immigrant. He was probably the Samuel Wolcott who filed intention to marry Bridget Hay at Boston in 1722, but Bridget married another man in 1727 in Boston, still using her maiden name. Samuel was "of Boston" in 1725 when he married Mary "Mercy" Fosdick at Charlestown. Based on DNA test results, and chronological and geographical evidence, it is probable that he was fathered out of wedlock by a grandson of Henry Wolcott III or his brother John. Samuel, above, seems one of the likeliest possibilities, being single, age 24, and in Boston shortly before this birth.
In a court case dated 1732, Robert Ball of Charlestown, mariner v. Samuel Wilcot, now or late resident of Charlestown, mariner, Ball claimed that he had loaned Samuel money that was not repaid. The account, dated 1729, lists three amounts totalling 3L 11 s 12d. The court found for the plaintiff and Samuel was ordered to pay 33s and court costs. On the reverse of this document is found "Attest 1 Oct. 1732 xxx Samuel Wolcott" and a notation that a bond was given by the defendant, Samuel Wolcutt, sailmaker, of Charlestown, who pled that he had made payment. He had as surety Stephen Ford, blockmaker, of Charlestown. A deposition in this case reads: "Thomas Robenson Marriner of Lawful age Testifieth & Saith that on or about the Year 1729 he the deponent did belong and was Shiped on boord the Sloop Medford whereof Robert Ball was Master in which time this deponent saw Saml Wilcot under the custody of Mr. Joshua Scottow deputy Sherif and that he the said Ball Paid money to release the said Wilcot from going to Gaol the said Wilcot then promising to come to work on board the said Sloop to proceed on a voyage in the said Sloop with him the said Ball and further this deponent saith that the said Saml Willcot came two or three peices of Days and in that space of time went from the said vessel several times as if he did not incline to work and then wholly absented himself and came no more and by what this deponent could learn while the said Wilcot was on board that the said Robert Ball had lent him the said Wilcot more money at sundry other timmes beside what he paid the Sheriff for his discharge. Samuel Wolcott of Boston m. Mary "Mercy" Fosdick of Charleston 1725 at Charlestown. "Widow Mary Willcott" was living in Charlestown in 1775.
(6) Samuel Wolcott Jr., b. 1727 Charleston MA, d. 1809 Cheshire MA; married Lucy Wright. Lucy Wright may have gone to Goshen CT with her mother, who moved there about 1740. She married Samuel in 1750 and the marriage was recorded at Wethersfield. In 1751 Lucy's mother sold land at Wethersfield to "my son-in-law Samuel Wolcott ye 2nd of said Wethersfield". The following day Samuel sold the land to Samuel Wolcott, Sr., of Wethersfield. According to Stiles History of Weathersfield, Joseph Webb bought a house and 2 3/4 acres of land at Wethersfield from Maj. Samuel Wolcott in 1752. In the following year he bought from Samuel Wolcott, then of Goshen, Connecticut two and three quarters acres more adjoining for L1,374, and also about the same quantity of land from Leiutenant Timothy Wright, the uncle of Lucy. Samuel moved from Lanesboro, Massachusetts, to Goshen, CT, about 1753. It is said that Samuel and 12 or 14 other men from Worcester County, Massachusetts, came to Shoreham, Vermont, about 1766 and built a log house in which they lived together as one family, taking turns in housework and cooking and working together at clearing and improving the land which they had jointly purchased. He moved his family to Shoreham, VT, by 1773. Apple trees he planted in 1774 became a nursery, furnishing fruit and trees to the neighborhood. He and his son, Samuel, were privates with Ethan Allen's "Green Mountain Boys", who captured Fort Ticonderoga in 1775. The Wolcott family moved for safety to Cheshire, Massachusetts during the war, and then returned to Shoreham. An account of the early residents of Shoreham, written by Rev. Josiah Goodhue in 1861 says of him: "In the fall of 1773, Samuel Wolcott from Goshen, Connecticut, settled with his family on the farm now owned and occupied by Deacon Almon Wolcott. He and his son, Samuel, were with Ethan Allen's party at the capture of the fort. Becoming alarmed by a party of Indians that appeared in the vicinity, he and his family fled to Berkshire County, Massachusetts, where they remained until 1783. Then they returned to the farm they had left. He died while on a visit to friends in Massachusetts." "The History of Cheshire" says "Samuel Wolcott Jr. settled on land adjoining the Cream Hill Stock Farm on the south soon after the Revolution and died there." In 1790 his family at Shoreham consisted of 2 males over 16 and 1 female. Samuel died of smallpox while visiting his son, Moses, at Cheshire. In a deed dated 1804, "Jese Wallcutt, Alven Wolcott, & Philemon Wallcutt of Shoreham Vermont, heirs of Samuel Wollcut of said Shoreham deceased, son of Mercy Wallcut formerly of Charlestown, widow, decst.", conveyed rights to land at Charlestown; m. Lucy Wright 1750 Wethersfield CT.
Sam is said to have come to Shoreham in 1766 without his family, but had 4 kids before he moved his family to Shoreham in 1773. No record has been found of Wolcott births at Goshen and no children of Sam and Lucy were recorded at Wethersfield.

It was said of him: "But the want of steady aim and of self command was fatal to the hopes cherished for him.
