Samuel Green (printer)
Samuel Green (c.1614 – January 1, 1702) was an American printer and progenitor of the Green family of printers, which included Bartholomew Green, Bartholomew Green, Jr. and Joseph Dennie. Born in England, he came to Cambridge, Massachusetts with John Winthrop in 1630. He was one of the first American printers; while he arrived in America eight years before Stephen Daye, there is no record of him being a printer until ten years after Daye's business began. Green was also Cambridge's town clerk, and captain of the town militia. Green had nineteen children by two wives, and his descendants were printers in Connecticut, Maryland, Pennsylvania and Nova Scotia, among other places.
