Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Samual or a variant listed above: John Samuel settled in Nantasket in 1630; Roger Samuel settled in Barbados in 1684; Edward Samuel settled in Virginia in 1643; Rowland Samuell settled in Barbados in 1654..
