Contributed to periodicals articles on legal and literary subjects; during Civil War, wrote editorials for the Age on matters of national concern; as a Democrat, was opposed to Lincoln's policies (Barratt, Memorial of John Samuel).

The Office Book records payment for Samuel's article as sent to B. Samuel, Esq., 31 Throgmorton St.; Kelly's Post Office London Directory, 1857, lists at that address Bunford Samuel and Isaac Bunford Samuel, stockbrokers. They were relatives of the American Samuel, whose father was of English Jewish ancestry and one of whose sons was named Bunford.
