The following is found in Genealogy of the Wardwell Family, written by Ralph S. Wardwell in 1943 (typescript):

"SAMUEL WARDWELL was a very successful sea captain in his adulthood. He also served three times as the Representative from Penobscot to the Massachusetts General Court. Upon his death in 1858, aged 84 years, he was survived by his wife and five of his 10 children.

"His home in Penobscot, the so-called 'Polly Banks House', was situated at what is now called 'Witherle Park', the cellar and foundation which may now be seen about 300 feet in a northerly direction from the so-called large basin of the Castine Water Company.

Captain Samuel apparently left his wife financially secure after his death, because she moved to Castine and there occupied the house which was situated on the northwest side of Water Street between the house now owned by Lelland Mixer (the old Dunham house) and the property now owne by Ermo Scott."
