Sampson family of the Eastern Shore of Maryland

Here is some information on the Sampson family from the inventory of the Talbot County estate of Thomas Martin on 27 September 1734:

Elizabeth Sampson a Molattoe having 4 years to serve - 8 pounds
Mag Sampson a Molatto having about 11 or 12 years to serve - 17
William Sampson a molattoe to serve about 13 years - 20 pounds
Sisly Sampson a molattoe to serve 17 or 18 years - 19 pounds
Priscilla Sampson a Molatto to serve 21 or 22 years - 16 pounds
Rachele Sampson (no race indicated) to serve to the age of 21 - 5 pounds
[Prerogative Court Inventories 1734-6, volume 19, pp.156-9].

They were probably related to the Sampson family that was counted as "other free" in Kent and Dorchester counties.
