THE SESSIONS IN EARLY AMERICA
Thomas Dudley of Dudley Manor was appointed administrator of the colony of Massachusetts. He asked Samuel Sessions, who was his farmer, (overseer of his farms) to go with him to America. Samuel was a member of the body guard for King George which were called Yeoman of the Guard. He was 6 feet 4 inches tall and weighed around 250 pounds. He was from Wantage, England. He received an honorable discharge from the King so that he could remain with Dudley as overseer of his new estates. They sailed to America on the Winthrop Fleet in 1630.
Samuel Sessions worked for Thomas Dudley for around 16 years in Roxbury, Massachusetts then became a freeman and purchased land from the Indians in Andover for 6 English pounds and one coat. He married and raised a large family. He became one of the first settlers in Andover in 1647 and lived to be 92.
