There is no proof that Samuel was son of Stephen. In fact there is proof that he is not the son.

The marriage of Stephen Terry to Jane Hardy occurred 13 Mar 1633/4.

If Samuel was born July 1633. This was before the marriage of Stephen and Jane.

Stephen makes no mention of a son Samuel in his will.

Samuel should be disconnected from Stephens profile and stand on his own.
