I think the sample_patrons will have borrowernumber < 51;

If you are sure that they have no borrowings, you can delete them
from the borrowers table in the SQL database (using your koha
superlibrarian details to login).

This will become simpler when one of the Patron Batch Edit
enhancements is published.  Watch
and see which company publishes it first!

Hope that helps,
