    • It is unclear whether or not Eli Dodimead is the father of Samuel. The birth certificate shows no father's name. Most of the census entries for Samuel that follow, indicate his surname as Dodimead but this could be just for convenience. At the time of his marriage, Samuel indicates that his father's name was Francis Roberts but Francis was Samuel's grandfather. This reinforces the theory that Samuel doesn't know who his father was and furthermore, that he wasn't the son of Eli.
