Born: c. 1740, Died: 1798

The master builder Samuel Wallis signed the Articles of The Carpenters' Company on 16 July 1770. Never regular in his attendance at Company meetings, he may have been out of Pennsylvania much of the time. (There was a Samuel Wallis in Harford County, Maryland, in 1790.) According to Company records, Wallis died in 1798 at the age of fifty eight years.
