. From "Account Books of John Hull, Treas. War, Mass. Bay Colony:-

Samuel Cleveland was known as Sergt. Cleveland, and is thus designated in the Woburn and Canterbury town, land, and church records. He bought land at Chelmsford, 17 Nov 1681, 6 acres near and 17 acres on the N sideof Tadmuch Hill.

Was made a freeman --‎(CerT*)‎ ‎(certified by Selectman as entitled to Freedom)‎ 11 Mar 1689-90.

Samuel Cleveland was taxed 1716 on £84 valuation when there were only £63 taxable inhabitants in Canterbury; of these 9 were Clevelands. Samuel and Josiah were the first Clevelands who left Woburn and settled in Canterbury. About 1699 they were joined by their brothers, Isaac and Edward. The posterity of Samuel numbers many talented, cultured, and useful persons; many of them have been prominent in the affairs of the nation. The professions are largely represented. The greater proportionare successful business men, merchants, manufacturers, producers, etc,who by industry, have accumulated wealth and are noted for philanthropy.

Samuel, son of Moses Cleveland, spelled his name Samuell. One of the first to settle in Connecticut. He served as a soldier in King Philip's war 1675/76. He held the rank of Sergeant. A petition was written to thearmy from his brother Moses to release him early as he, Moses was injured, and could not bring in the crops without Samuel's help. He was released.

He was admitted a freeman, March 11, 1689-90. He bought land in Chelmsford, November 17, 1681, on the north side of Tadmuck Hill. He returned to Woburn in 1693 and the same year removed to Canterbury, Connecticut. The settlers had considerable trouble over the distribution of the land,and there were numerous disputes and trials at law regarding it. At one time Samuel Cleveland, together with nearly all the prominent men in the town, was fined for "stealing loads of hay." On April 30, 1723, the land under dispute was finally apportioned to the satisfaction of all, and Samuel Cleveland was among those who had the shares allotted to first settlers.

***************
from a source who wishes to remain annonymous

Samuel was an officer in the Colonial Army during King Phillip's War ‎(Indian War of 1675- 1676)‎. He was very prominent in colonial affairs.

Samuel was made a freeman at Chelmsford, 11 March 1689. He was one of the seven who founded the first church at Canterbury, June 13th, 1711. He was distinguished by the title of "sargent" and is so called in the town records
in various instances. He died 12 March 1736 at Canterbury. He was taxed
there in 1716. He brought land in Chelmsford on November 1, 1861.
