Velma Anne Sam(p)son

I heard about you from my brother Paul Sampson, who lives in Victoria, BC and was in touch with you as he pieced together our family geneology. I just wanted to drop by your site and see what is here, which I shall bookmark.

I am the daughter of Albert Joseph Sam(p)son of L'Ardoise, Cape Breton who was married to my mother Mary Catharine Sam(p)son (yes a Sampson before marrying my dad) of Sydney, Cape Breton. My father was actually born in Boston. His father was Albert (Paddy) Patrick Sampson (I believe from France) and his mother was known as Dorothy (Dot) Crowley and it turns out her real name is Keohane, from Glengarrif County, West Cork, Ireland.

Although my name is spelled Sampson, my baptismal certificate bears what I consider to be the actual and correct spelling of Samson.

Anyway, just saying hello. I have been living in Toronto...and as of the end of April 2012...will be moving back to the Maritimes and will be living in Moncton!

Louise Samson

I am Louise Samson, daughter of Hervé Samson and Thérèse Robert, Hervé is the son of Alphonse, and then Ambroise, and then Ignace, Louise, Jean Baptiste, Jean Baptise (again) and Gabriel, the son of Toussaint Samson who esablished himself in Lévis.

I have 3 brothers, Jean-Marc, Robert and Gabriel.

My great grandmother was Marcellaine Samson Forest. My mother was Lucille Rose Forrest. I have complete information on my mother's siblings, if you are continuing to work on that genealogy, and are interested in adding updated info. I've done mine, but have given up on trying to keep track of the current generations.

Eugene Paul Samson

With your info. Plus my daughter visiting the church in France. I have got my family tree back to 1555. One of the stranges things is that one of the oldest Samson's was Paul, which is my middle name and my dad's first. Now if only I can get info on my first cousin Alan Samson, who lives in California. His dad is (my uncle) John B Samson and his mom is Marion. Uncle John died in Las Vegas, where he lived with his second wife ???? Any info would be helpful. Good Work Charles

 There is no proof who Toussaint Samson's parents were. So mid 1600's is the furthest back we can go. There is no documented proof that Toussaint was the son of Paul Samson. This is an error that has travelled around the Internet for several years. 


This is my first visit to your site...who knows?

Richard S. Samson

What program are you using to keep track of your family history information? None of the programs that I have looked at seem to offer the same capabilities as the one you are using.

Thank you Richard for visiting my site. I have used Family Tree Maker since 1996 and found it easy to use and very reliable.

This is a wonderful web site and a beautiful tribute to the Samson Family. Many thanks to you and all your contributors for publishing this information and sharing your research.

Anne-Marie Samson

Hello Mr. Samson.
I live in the Province of Quebec, Canada. I just discovered this wonderful site. I could have worthy information on the Samson family for you. My father had his genealogy made by Institut Drouin in the 40's. He is from the 10th generation which does not appear in the genealogy pages. My father, Jean J. Samson, was the son of Joseph Roch Samson, himself son of Joseph Edmond Samson. You also make reference to Madeleine Samson who has given you pictures of St.Gatien des bois's Church, and she could be my half sibling sister. We are from the Jacques Samson branch. If my informations can be of any use, plase contact me. Thank you for publishing this wonderful site.

Wow, this site is awsome

Wayne Sampson

I came across your website and was absolutely delighted. I have been working on(or should I say trying to) the Sampson family tree sporadically for the last 10 years or so. I do have some information I got from Clement Burke who lives in River Tillard. We are what I call double first cousins - his mother, Edith May is the sister of my father Clarence Anthony - and his father, Xavier Burke is the brother of my mother, Monica Mary. I left Nova Scotia in 1982 to work in the arctic and spent 25 years there. I am now retired on an acreage 1 hour southeast of Edmonton, Alberta with my wife Linda. I am mostly trying to develop a flowchart showing lineage using various information I have collected over the years and supplementing it other information I find on the internet which includes your very valuable website that indicates a lot of work has been done by you and which I appreciate. I will include acknowledgement of your website and if you would like I can froward you a copy of my work when it is finished. Thanks again and I hope to hear from you. Wayne.

After doing research on the Samson family for the last 8 years, my husband (whose mother was a Samson) and I traveled to Nova Scotia and spent the last two weeks visiting the sites that are important to the life of his ancestors (Frank 8, Pierre 7, Pierre Xavier 6, Pierre 5, Mathieu 4, Gabriel 3, Gabriel 2, Toussant 1). Armed with your information on dates and places, we visited the Fortress of Louisbourg, Port Royal, Annapolis Royal, L'Ardoise, and Grand Pre'. We also visited Halifax, The Cabot Trail, Glace Bay and Hal's Harbour to see the Bay of Fundy tides. It was a wonderful trip and helped us to live in their shoes for awhile and experience their lives through the excellent information provided by you on the Fortress of Louisbourg, Port Royal/Annapolis Royal and the moving portrael of the Deportation at Grand Pre'. Thanks for your assistance by providing so much information on the Samsons for our use. I applaud you for your time and work on this.

Glen Sampson

Hello: I enjoyed looking through your web page. My grandfather was Willie Samson from Louisdale, NS

Barry Samson

Hello from Nelson, New Zealand.

My family have lived in NZ since the mid 19th C. My Great, Great Grandfather was Charles Samson who arrived in Dunedin in the South Island. I had heard that the family came from Scotland and before that the name had originated from France. My wife and I were in France a few years ago and came across a small village called St Samson. Do you have any information regarding who this person was? I am really interested in showing my three sons this web site and expanding their knowledge.
Charles and Robert seem to be names favoured by the Samson clan in NZ as well.
Best wishes
