Samuel Wheelock moved from Medfield to Marlborough, MA, probably around 1688, when he is listed in the Marlborough Tax Invoice. He and his brother Joseph were heirs to their father's estate in Medfield, which they sold in 1690 to Joseph Plimpton. (Src: "History of Medfield", Tilden; Suffolk Deeds, 17-63). Due to frequent Indian attacks, residents of Marlborough and other colonial towns were assigned to garrison houses for protection. In 1711, Samuel Wheelock was assigned to the garrison house of John Howe, along with Zachariah Eager, Abraham Eager, Daniel Johnson, Obadiah Ward, and Thomas Axtell. (Src: "Early Reminiscence of Marlborough", by Ella Bigelow, 1910, from "History of Marlborough" website,, by John Buczek, Mar 2002)

In 1717 he signed one of the original deeds for the town of Shrewsbury. He was a founder and one of the first Deacons of the church there. He built the first mill in Shrewsbury on Old Mill Pond in 1721. In 1727 he served on the first board of selectmen in Shrewsbury, and again in the years 1730, and 1732. In 1729, he was living on house lot No. 26. (Source: "History of the Town of Shrewsbury, Massachusetts, From Its Settlement in 1717 to 1829, With Other Matter Relating Thereto Not Before Published, Including An Extensive Family Register", by Andrew H. Ward, Published by Samuel G. Drake, 1847.)

On a deed dated 10 Dec 1740 Samuel and Lydia Wheelock signed over their estate to Daniel Wheelock of Shrewsbury out of "parental love and affection, and in consideration of obligation to maintain myself and wife." Recorded in Worcester County Probates, Case 63804, Deed Book 19, pg. 222.

There is no proof that Lydia is the daughter of Samuel Wheelock and Lydia Rice, but the circumstantial evidence seems compelling. For a more detailed discussion, see the notes for Lydia Wheelock.
