Samson, Sampson, Simpson ???

Samson, Sampson, and Simpson. I've seen all three names used. Are they three different people, or typos? If they are different, then I'd really appreciate a discription of who each of these people are. Thanks,


Hi Justin, .........John Samson was a builder of ferroboats in Canada. He formed a company along with several designers called Samson Marine Designs Ltd. He retired from the scene and sold the business around 1974. The Samson designs are available from Hartley & Brookes Associates at Sampson is a mis-spelling of Samson and Simpson was one of the Samson group designers. Regards
