Samuel/4w Fox Jr., 1st so-named, was born 24 Apr 1681 on "General Neck" south of New London, Connecticut, and baptised at N.L. 9 Apr 1682.2,1 He is called "Samuel Fox the elder" in his father's will, to distinguish him from his stepbrother Samuel Fox "the younger," born 10 years later to their father's 3rd wife.3
     He married (1), 25 Mar 1703 at New London, Margaret Stebbins, daughter of Daniel Stebbins and Bethiah Comstock.4 His father's will, 6 Apr 1727, of which he was named co-executor, gives eldest son Samuel "the elder" his lands in the North Parish, with the mills known as the Fox mills, and all his wearing apparel.5 Samuel's wife Margaret died in Sep 1752 (g.s.), a. 716,7, and he married (2), 27 Apr 1753, Zipporah Bowles, daughter of John Bolles.8,9
     "He settled on the land bequeathed to him by his father, which was situated in the north parish of New London, and in what is now known as the town of Montville. His father had built a sawmill and gristmill on the property, and the place became known as Fox's Mills. Samuel 'the elder' was the first settler here, and is the ancestor of most of the Foxes of Montville.8 He lived on this farm until his death, which occurred February 12, 1754, in his seventy-third year, and was buried on the farm, a short distance from his house, in what is called the 'Fox burying ground.' This farm is still [1909] owned and occupied by his descendants."8,10
     His will, 1753, named Daniel Coit and son-in-law Nathaniel Comstock executors.11
