Samuel Waite married Margaret Russell on 26 January 1724 at Leigh, Kent, England, Samuel is "of Penshurst" and Margaret is "of Leigh". They married by licence.1
They lived in Penshurst between 1724 and 1733 as their children were baptised there during that time. It appears that between 1734 and 1741 that Samuel and Margaret lived elsewhere and then returned to Penshurst. A search of surrounding parishes might well turn them up during that period.

On a Datchurst manorial court record dated 7 Oct 1747, the death of Elizabeth Wheatly is noted. Her substantial estate was inherited by Margaret wife of Samuel Wait, Thomas Morley and [blank, but later records show it to be George Hall] still an infant. The properties included a house and lands called Wesbler and Hares and one hundred acres of land in Tunbridge and Leigh, and a barn and 14 acres of land called Kipps Land near Stocks Green, a farm called Dulhams, and a tenement called the Half Moon.2
Samuel Waite died on 11 April 1758 at Leigh, Kent, England, at age 67. Date of death on headstone.
Samuel Waite was buried on 11 April 1758 at Leigh, Kent, England.1
Note that there are no Samuel Waite burials in Penshurst (1558 to 1812).3
The death of Samuel the Elder is confirmed in the manorial court record of 19 Oct 1758. It is also noted that the Half Moon has been alienated to Thomas Webb.
A later entry on that same date mentions Thomas Waite and George Hall alienating another property, indicating that Thomas was the eldest surviving son (his brother Samuel had died in 1756).2
A gravestone inscription for Samuel Waite was recorded as "Samuel WAITE, died April 11, 1758, aged 69 years.4"
