History written by Virginia Howard Coulson
My father, Josiah Howard, received his education in England.  Joined the church along with his parents & brothers & sisters then came to America & settled in Carey Idaho.  My mother, Louisa B Park received her education in Salt Lake City being one of the first Medical Doctors majoring in Obstetrics.  Her brother Albert & his wife from Prove Bench settled in Carey Idaho on a farm & mother delivered their children.  It was in Carey where my mother met my father & they were married in the Salt Lake Temple.  My father had built a nice home on a forty acre farm in Carey & that is where I was born.  Mother had six children, three boys & three girls
Carey was a farming community & everyone needed a well.  My father had a well drilling outfit that dug wells.  Mother was the Doctor in the community delivering many babies along with other medical needs.
My first grade teacher when she entered the classroom said.  “My name is Miss Lilly can you all remember that?”  and I have never been able to forget her or her name.  My third grade teacher was on a mission to Japan where my grandson, Joseph is on his mission now & if we did something like getting a piece of paper on the floor he would punish us Japanese style by having us hold that piece of paper up in the air over our heads.  If we talked we would have to go to the blackboard hold up one foot in back of us with our forhead on the blackboard so he had a very orderly class.
My folks bought a little blue bicycle for me & I would ride it to my music teachers home so that was my start in music.  She was a good teacher.  She put on recitals and as soon as I was good enough I started playing in church.  My Father loved to sing and he did have a beautiful voice  I’ll never forget when he offered me a quater to learn, “Truth Reflects Upon the Senses.”  He also had some words to that song that he had learned in England - “Life is like a Mountain Railroad.”
Carey was a fun little town I remember one time they had a trip around the world and in the different homes they would represent different countries.  Mother’s brother William had been on a mission to Samoa so the island had to be at out home.  The front room had the floor protected someway, the furniture taken out and dirt & flowers fixed in it to look like they were growing.  In one corner was a little hut like they have in Samoa and my mother’s two younger sisters, Uella & Vetris sat in that hut & with their beautiful voices sang Samoan songs that their brother had taughter them and as people would go from one home to another they would receive food and entertainment.  When I think of one home with an eskimo igloo made of snow blocks or something that looked like cold show that the eskimo was setting in, well it still makes me shiver.
We had a hot springs in that town and that is where my father baptized me and we also went swiming there but with children the creeks were fun to.
I stayed with my oldest brother & family in Pocatello for Highschool & a good start at the University, even kept up with music lessons, worked awhile at a cheese factory & couldn’t stand cheese for years after also worked at a Five and Dime store and had a very dear girl friend & fun boy friends so life was great but it didn’t stay great.  Things went from bad to worse in Carey.  My folks morgaged their home and farm for water to irrigate the farm but they didn’t get water & the Carey Bank failed so lost the home & farm.  It was a very unfair deal.
I was picked up at my brothers home in a Ford touring car with a trailer attached & off we went to Long Beach California where my oldest sister & husband lived.  That was the year of the Great Depression.   Those years were very hard years.  Work was not available.  They had such things going like Dance Marathons where dancers would dance until they dropped and the couple that lasted the longest would win the prize.  They would rest for fifteen minutes ever so often around the clock.  I always enjoyed dancing so I joined (see the picture in the Family News for November 15th, 1995 on page 5.  But my partner didn’t last nor the next one either or the next & believe me when that deal was over I slept the clock around.  So the search began.  *I did find that if I worked in the office of a Beauty School that it would pay for the course so took the Beauty course passed the State Exam and started work in a Beauty Shop.  *I decided to take a beauty course so I worked part time in the office to pay for it, took the state exam in Los Angeles and passed it so I worked in the Beauty Shop in the day & in a food place at night where you could serve food to people in cars.  I saved the money to get back in school but then the earthquake came while I was working in the beauty shop.  Long Beach was a disaster.  Sides of buildings fell and many buildings just crumbled.  People panicked but I thought the world had come to an end so might as well be calm about it.  Busses quit running so I had a good nine mile walk home.  Thank goodness our home wasn’t destroyed just dishes & breakable things.  We could even sleep in our beds if you didn’t mind it shaking a bit all through the night.  So many slept in parks.  Many schools were torn down & rebuilt.  The University finally opened and I was able to go to it again and majored in accounting.  Long Beach did recover and I did get to go dancing again but not in any marathon just a good old fashioned dance and we even had them in our ward cultural hall with a good live orchestra.  We also had musical programs each month with home talent one month and professional another and that practice continued.
My sister, husband and family moved to Pamona California and since one of my boy friends in Idaho came to see me he took me to Pamona to see them.  My sister had invited the missionaries to dinner and it was there that I met Elder Coulson.  In his history he tells about our writing letters and our romance that according to my mother was too fast.  Well they even complemented the Bishop in my ward since I had been going with his son when the news came to the ward that I was getting married.  Usually fast marriages don’t last but this coming November 16th will be our 64th anniversary.
When I went back to school I went into accounting, that was the field for me except when my children were little I wanted to be with them so taught piano lessons at home.  Then when they were in school I went to work.  Worked fourteen years for Freed Finance Company and that was when Lee was so ill but being my own boss I could leave and go see him.  They owned finance companies, a Dance hall & the Lagoon and finally decided it was too many companies so closed the Finance Companies, then the Dance Hall - the Lagoon was enough for them so I went to work for the Jewish Community Center and the Jewish Welfare Fund had my own office & plenty of interesting work to keep me plenty busy until ten years ago when Ira finally talked me into retiring to hard labor but I enjoy the garden, fruit trees and all the work that goes along with it.  It is very demanding though and in summer it is more than a full time job.
*Going into music paid off - I not only enjoyed it but taught music lessons to help pay for our first home when our children were little and I am organist at church so appreciated my mother seeing to it that I practiced.  The with accounting I worked first in an accounting office then Freed Finance Co. for thirteen years.  Then the Jewish Community Center & Welfare Fund for thirty years and flunked retirement.
At church I am still organist.  It’s a lifetime job except a few times along with being organist I have been coordinator in the Jr. Sunday School and since it has always been hard for me to give talks I decided to have each child bear their testimony and finally succeeded in getting them all to do that.  When they were in Sacrament meeting that continued and the Bishop would turn the first part of the meeting over to the children.  It was such a good experience for them just wish it continued in our ward.  I have been a teacher also but organist is still it and the challenge with it is getting use to the different organs.  First a piano then a peddle one.  Then I took lessons on the pipe and loved it.  So in the different wards it would be pipe or Hammond or Rogers and now it is Allen and I am getting use to it.  The rest of my story is pretty well covered in Ira’s history.

JOHNSON, Harry (I1093)
237 Manor of Sampson's Hall, Kersey
Copingers 'Manors of Suffolk' is a little confusing. Starting thus:-
"The Sampsons had long been settled at Kersey. As early as 1382 we meet on the Patent Rolls with a pardon to Thomas Sampson, of Kersey imprisoned in Ipswich Gaol and under sentence of death for felony."
Very brief, but so far correct, however there is an earlier reference to John Sampson of Kersey in 1331 and his wife Joanna, and their dispute with Jacob Sampson of Kereseye in 1343, parson of Middleton Church.

Copinger then describes "Simon Sampson, of Kersey, son of Robert, married Margaret, daughter of Sir James Hobart, knight, and was lord of this manor at the opening of the 16th century. On his death he was succeeded by his son and heir, Thomas Sampson, in 1508, when the manor passed to his son and heir, Simon or Symond Sampson."

The only recorded marriage between a daughter of Sir James Hobart and a Sampson was Catherine Hobart and Sir Thomas Sampson of Playford. I can find no record of a daughter Margaret, nor a marriage to Simon Sampson so this is probably an error.

Copingers date of 1508 is also confusing.

An indexed record extracted from parish records give a date for Thomas Sampson's burial of 5 Feb 1507 at Playford, and the following information from Topographical and Genealogical, The County of Suffolk, 1844, Augustine Page The inscription on the church porch, mentioned by Mr. Kirby, reads as follows: "Orate pro Animabus Thomas Seckeford Armi: et Margareta uxs;" and Mr. Weever gives the following memorials from this church: "Thomas Seckford, esquire, Elizabeth and Margaret his wives, which Thomas dyed xxiii. of Novemb. in 1505." "Thomas Sampson, esquire, dyed the 5. of February 1507." (His family resided at the adjoining parish of Playford.) "

The Will of Thomas Sampson dated 10th Jan 1509 requesting a burial in the church of Great Belynggs. He names his wife Margaret, and several children

Inquisitions record Simon Sampson being an heir and kinsman of Thomas Sampson, who was the son of Thomas Sampson Esq. Simon Sampson as Copinger recorded, was heir to Sampson's Hall, Kersey at the turn of the 16th century.

Thomas Sampson died 31 Jan [1509] 24 Henry 7th, and Simon Sampson is his kinsman and heir, who is son of Thomas Sampson gentleman, son of above said Thomas Sampson esquire

In the Notes referred to the writer ventured to date it between 1400 and 1432, and perhaps it may now be put 1421--1423, when Sampson married the daughter of Fellbridge, the Church Builder, of Playford, on whose death he left Brettenham for his Wife's home"

No 6. Inquisition Post Mortem of Thomas Sampson, esquire.
Circa 1 Henry VIII. A.D. 1509

(Authors note) This document is much faded. The first few lines are illegible, so that the date when and place where the inquisition is held cannot be made out. But in the margin the escheators name is given, John Farechild. He was the county escheator for the last few months of Henry VII and the first few months of Henry VIII. And as Thomas Sampson died in Jan 1509 three months before the death of Henry VII, the date of the inquisition is pretty well fixed. I can only give an abstract of what the jury found.

Thomas Sampson esquire owned a manor called [Sampson Halle] in Kersey, and advowson of the free chapel, premises called Justice in Polstead, premises called Gloucestres in ...sey and Kersey. So possessed he by deed 16 Henry VII (1500-01) granted to Thomas Sampson his eldest son and Margaret, wife of Thomas Sampson his son, and their heirs a yearly rent out of the manor Called Sampson Hall. He also granted to them another annuity. Afterwards Thomas the son died, and Margaret his wife remained in sole possession.

Sampson Hall is held of the lord of Powes as of his manor of Kersey by fealty and service of 20 shillings yearly, and said manor and advowson are worth yearly clear £10.

Some time before his death he granted manors and lands in Freston, Herksted, Holbrook, Wersted, Tatyngston, Awardston, Chelmeton & elsewhere to Sir John Wyngfeld & other feofees to have and to hold to the use of Margaret......... widow, late the relict of Thomas Seckford esquire, for her life, and after her death to the use of Thomas Sampson esquire and the lawful heirs of his body, in default to the right heirs of John Sampson,  in default to the lawful heirs of John Sampson esquire.

Netherhall, which is a manor in Herksted, is held of the king as of the honor of ........., parcel of his duchy of Lancaster, by the service of one quarter of a knights fee, and is worth yearly 100 shillings clear.

Thomas Sampson died Jan 31, 24 Henry VIII [1509] and Simon Sampson is his kinsman and heir, who is son of Thomas Sampson gentleman, son of the above said Thomas Sampson esquire. Simon Sampson is turned 10 years of age.
