Thank you for your help. I believe the Mark you mention from the 1841 census is who I am looking for. He was a farm labourer at Clenham Mill. While his daughters are mentioned, his sons are not on that census record. His wife is mentioned as Sarah in the census but on other sites as Martha. Do you know anything about working at the Clenham Mill in the 1830-40s. I take it was a flax mill.
It appears from the Marriages register that Mark Sampson could also have been known as Mark Sansom.
Your contact details were give to me by Glen Bishop from the Netherbury Village website.
Over the past couple of years I have been mapping the churchyard memorials or as many as I can decipher.
I have found 2 Sampson memorials, although they do not fit in with your names and dates, they may be of interest.
There is one in the south side of the churchyard:
Sacred to the memory of Ann wife of
Benjn Sampson, Yeoman of the parish of Yetminster
Who departed this life October 29th 1841 aged 58 years
Affliction sore long time I bore
Physicians were in vain
till God was pleas’d death should me seize
To ease me of my pain
Also of David Sampson son of the aforesaid Benjamin
& Ann Sampson died May 24th 1804 aged 2 year.
Also of their son Joseph who died in his infancy.
And another one is the north side of the churchyard which commemorates Henry Sampson died 6/12/1919 aged 65 and Phoebe Sampson died 25/03/1929 aged 72.

This is full of old photos, records and histories. On the 1841 Census a Mark Sampson is listed, he is aged 50, who would fit in with your age range, but does not have a son Charles. If you search the website there are quite a few Sampson entries.
If you require further information please do not hesitate to contact me.
Morag Curtis has found the following – she was unable to e-mail your address as given.
looking for information and photos of the sampson family mainly Mark or his son Charles I am doing the family tree here in New Zealand
An idea of timeframe would be helpful.
