    Death  1880 
    Drowned while bathing at Barmouth. He had gone swimming with his brother-in-law Dr Alexander Paull (9 years younger) and both were excellent swimmers. Alex had returned to shore almost immediately and having poor eyesight could not see Samuel. About 8 minutes later two other gentlemen out swimming came across Samuel and noticing something peculiar in his manner brought him ashore. By then life was almost extinct and all attempts at resuscitation by Alex were unsuccessful. Samuel had not complained beforehand of feeling unwell but had said he had had a very bad night. Alex was unaware that Samuel was prone to suffer fits but it appeared that there were signs of apoplexy on the body. The jury at the inquest held next day at Barmouth returned a verdict of 'Death from apoplexy whilst bathing'.
