was born January 16, 1719-20. He married, July 12, 1749, Amey Easton, a daughter of Jonathan and Patience (Rodman) Easton. He died in 1802. She died in 1810. In 1778 his estate was mortgaged to Thomas Brown for one hundred and sixty-seven dollars ("Spanish milled"). The same year, 1778, the General Assembly voted that the Sheriff for the County of Kings "enquire into the present Situation of the Estates of Samuel Gardiner and William Robinson, situate in South Kingstown." The report of the Sheriff, Beriah Brown, was to the effect that the estate of William Robinson was mortgaged to his brother, Sylvester Robinson, for four thousand and thirty Spanish milled dollars, payable in 1773. The said Sylvester, who was in possession of the premises, said that William owed him also a sum of money not included in the mortgage. Also the estate of Samuel Gardiner was mortgaged as above. Abijah Babcock, the present tenant, was to pay Samuel Gardiner 150 dollars and five hundredweight of pork and the cutting of some brush per year. In February, 1779, the Assembly ordered that the Sheriff take possession of the estate of Samuel Gardiner in South Kingstown immediately, said Gardiner being then with the enemy in Newport. In 1777 Susannah Gardiner was allowed to go to Newport with a flag of truce, to see her father, Samuel Gardiner, then with the enemy.1
