Sampson's Brook is a short stream which drains swampy land north of Blackwater, flows under Winthrop Street only a short distance east of Bassett's Brook and so into Blackwater Pond. It was named for Benjamin Sampson through whose land it flowed. A small dam and pond are on this brook, whether built for water-power or water-fowl, it is not known.
