Samuel was the son of Samuel Dousland Waddy, Governor of Wesley College (now King Edward VII School), Sheffield (1844–62), and president of the Wesleyan Conference (1859). Samuel had originally planned to follow his father’s footsteps in the ministry, but went into the legal profession instead. Educated at London University, he became Queen’s Counsel and Member of Parliament for Barnstaple, Devon (1874); Sheffield (1879); Edinburgh (1882); and Brigg, Lincolnshire (1886); and was appointed judge of the Sheffield County Court. In addition, he was a well known lay preacher, and served as treasurer for the Metropolitan Chapel Building Fund.
