Samson who married Elizabeth Bushnell? Welcome  ;D  Smith's still live in Headington, they're quite proud of their heritage! Priscilla was married to Wisdom's cousin Henry Smith first.
My notes on Samson: May 25th, County hall, Oxford: Charles Ward, Thos. Goodgame, and Samuel Smith [SAMSON], labourers, of Headington, were charged by P.C. King, with being drunk and riotous in the public street at Garrington on the 13th inst... [Case dismissed.] On 1871 census with wife Elizabeth (by her middle name Rebecca) and 4 eldest children.  Living in the High St in Headington in 1881 with 6 eldest children. On 1891 census in Headington with wife and children except Thomas, Selina and Ada.  On 1911 census at The Bank, Old Headington, widdowed with son Ernest. Samson & Elizabeth had a total of 12 children, 3 died before 1911. OR she could be the Elizabeth Bushell on the 1851 census who was born 1844, child of Wm and Maria of Headington quarry.
