Samuel’s parents were Elisha and Hannah Hough, who were married in 1743. Elisha’s parrents were Samuel, born in Norwich in 1692, and Elizabeth Waterman. Samuel’s father was Israel, born in 1659, who married Rebecca Bliss.

Israel was the son of Samuel Lathrop, who was born in England, and arrived in Scituate, Massachusetts in 1634 on the ship Griffin with his father, the Reverend John Lathop. Samuel was married by his father in 1644 in Barnstable to Elizabeth Scudder.

His sister Jane was married to Samuel Fuller by Miles Standish.

Rev. John Lathrop was the pastor of the First Church in Scituate until 1639, when he moved further south to Barnstable, Massachusetts. He is considered the founder of Barnstable.

In England, Rev. John was the second pastor of the Independent (Congregational) Church in London. King Charles I was in a conflict with Parliament, which was supported by Puritans, Presbyterians, and Independents. These religious dissenters were persecuted and imprisoned; Rev John was in jail from 1632 to 1634, during which his wife, Hannah House, died. On his release he left for North America, with his son Samuel.
