Samuel Fogg in England, 1628, and in Hampton, New Hampshire, 1647
Samuel Fogg was born January 1, 1628 (1629 by present calendar) in Theydon Garnon, Essex, England. Samuel was the youngest son of John Fogge (1580-1628) and Mary Legate (1594-) of Theydon Garnon. Samuel Fogg followed a kinsman to Hampton, New Hamphshire. John Legate was already in Hampton when Samuel arrived. John Legate was probably his mother's brother.
The exact date of Samuel's arrival in New England is not known. Samuel first appears in court records of Hampton, New Hampshire, in 1647. Typical estimates of the year of his arrival are the early 1640s, although some say he may have arrived in 1638 or 1639.
After arriving in Hampton, Samuel Fogg married first Anne Shaw (1636-1663) on November 12, 1652. Anne Shaw was the daughter of Roger Shaw (1594-1661) and Anne (unknown) (1610-1660), both English immigrants to Hampton. Samuel and Anne had 5 children: Samuel (1653-1710), Joseph (1656-1660), John (1658-1660), Daniel (1660-1755) and Mary (1661-1707). Anne Shaw died in 1663.
Samuel married second Mary Page (1644-1700) on December 28, 1665, in Hampton.

Samuel and Mary had 3 children: Seth (1666-1755), James (1668-1750), and Hannah (1671-1680).

Samuel Fogg (1777-1825) in Hampton, New Hampshire, 1805

In Phyllis Whitten's Samuel Fogg geneaology book, which I have, Samuel came to Hampton as a boy ... in 1640 ... and was apprenticed to William Fuller until 1647, when John Legat sued Fuller for failing to teach Samuel how to be a gunsmith. Samuel was then sent to be apprenticed to Isaac Cousins, "an expert smith" according to Winthrop's journal. Samuel had 4 years left to serve, which would have meant a total of 11 years' indentured. I believe John Legat was Mary's brother, yes ... and I also find many reasons to believe he was a London stacioner, a kinsman to Bartholomew, and a member of the Hornchurch-based family found to be the source of the "Seeker" movement in England at that time. It's an interesting history if you start digging.

With all the latest on the finding of Richard lll, there was a Fogge in the court at the time. This was interesting because I have Fogg in my ancestry. My grandmother was Eleanor white Fogg, who married Col. Osgood A. Nickerson my grandfather.. Wondering if you have found any ancestors back to 1485 and whether perhaps Eleanor Fogg is familiar.
