bullet  General Notes:

He was the son of Samuel "John" Galton , a prominent member of the scientific Lunar Society The lunar society was a discussion club, of a number of prominent industrialists.
and the father of Francis Galton (cousin of Charles Darwin) who explored many fields: heredity, meteorology, statistics, psychology, anthropology; founder of eugenics and first to use fingerprints for identification (1822-1911)) the eminent (if somewhat eccentric) scientist. Samuel Tertius, though less distinguished, was not an exception to the rule of scientific endeavour in his family.
Samuel also inherited his father's considerable business interests and quickly set about making changes - discontinuing the family's armaments business in 1815. Though fascinated by Samuel preferred to be less 'hands-on' in the running of the business than his father and spent much of his time living off the revenue of his considerable estate.
Samuel married Violetta (Francis Anne Viollette) Darwin, one of the twelve children of his father's old colleague and fellow Lunar Society member Erasmus Darwin trained as a physician...
Many of the 'Lunar children' grew up together and there were several such marriages.

Though brought up a Quaker , Samuel converted to the Church of England
