      Samuel Atwell was probably the youngest child of John and Elizabeth Atwell, born about 1710/11, as he was under the guardianship of his brother Youell in 1725, but was acting for himself Jan. 26, 1731/2, when he sued William Rice, who had married Youell's widow. He married about 1736 Martha (Howell) Davis, widow of William Davis, and daughter of John Howell and his wife, Martha, daughter of Vincent Cox, Sr. It is uncertain whether Samuel Atwell left issue.
