A Sam Green makes a number of appearances in Thomas Bellingham’s diary, the first one being on 2 August 1689 when he was with Bellingham on Merseyside where Schomberg was gathering his troops for embarkation for Ireland. They then return to Preston, where Green appears to be living, one of his children was christened there 19 May 1690; this is the last record of him in the diary. Bellingham refers to him as ‘cousen Green’ (5 August 1689) without specifying the exact relationship. He is ‘Cous Green’ again 17 April 1690 when he became involved in a row with naval officer, Bellingham reporting ‘It is thought Sam Green was in drinke’. No other information has been found.
