Samuel first appears on the records in 1684 as a drummer-boy, whom the town refused to pay. From a deed recorded in 1700, we learn that he was a cordwainer, like his father, and that he had some education since he was able to write his name. His wife, Elizabeth, signed with her mark. In Jan. 14, 1714/15, his name appears on "a list of those who are proprietors, who are in possession of the first granted house lotts in Watertown." (Watertown Rec.). He was the public scaler of leather in Watertown for the years, 1719, 1720, 1721, 1722 (Watertown Rec., Vol. II, pp. 260, 266, 278, 286).

And to make report of their doings at next Meeting.

The said Samuel Eddy met the Selectmen at the above said meeting and made an agreement with them, as follows "That the said Samuel Eddy taketh the said James Holland and to find and provide for him sufficient housing, meat, Drinke, washing, nursing and all other such necessarys as may be nedfull (sic) for him under his present circumstances and to be allowed 8 Shillings pr weeke and the ... selectmen are desired to take care & move the said Holland to Samuel Eddies as soon as they can conveniently." (Watertown Reg., Vol. 11. p. 245.)
