Preface 



THIS is not the autlior's ideal genealoo-y. Tliat has innch 
fuller biographies and pictures of days gone hy. To leacli 
its highest value, a family history sliould he full enough to make 
one feel acquainted with his own ancestors and earlier times. 
Generally, especially in families of New England descent, that is 
quite possible. The writer will be glad to sl-c separate xol times 
of the lines given herein, and will cheerfully assist, as he may, 
such fuller attempts at the " Baldwin (tenealo«y." 

No one can know, as well as tlie author, the many errors of 
this book. In giving some accounts, collected froin uiiginal 
sources, of twenty-two thousand individuals, errors would be 
expected. An examination of other Genealogies teaches that 
they are inseparable from such work. Between the author, the 
copyist and the printer, many have occurred; but more in the 
thousands of letters giving information, and some even in 
records. The author has in mind a place where the town and 
church records and epitaphs disagree oftener than they agree, 
and not seldom there are three different dates. He feels con- 
siderable confidence that he is generally right in the lines of 
descent. It has been his rule to admit a descent only on what 
Avould be legal evidence in such matters, and he has not hesi- 
tated to express such doubts as too seldom appear in books of 
Genealogy. 



8 Preface. 

At the close of a task which has occupied too large a portion of 
his time for more than twenty 3'ears, and taken more of his money 
than he expects to see returned to him, he may be pardoned for 
sajing- that he is himself surprised at the amount of material he 
has collected, — very busy as he has been in the active prosecution 
of a laborious profession 

He cannot l)ut have a very kindh^ feeling for the name and 
his readers. The}' will be very largely indebted to George W. 
Baldwin, Esq., of Boston, (p. 280) for the excellent account of 
the English lines herein, which makes it easy for most of the 
name to trace their ancestry for nearly four hundred years. 

The descendants of the Pennsylvania lines are pretty certain 
to be indebted to Mr. Gilbert Cope, of West Chester, Chester 
County, Penu. 

Hon. John D. Baldwin, of Worcester, Mass., has nearly doubled 
the descendants of John, of Stonington. 

Rev. DwiGHT Baldwin, of Honolulu, Hawaiian Islands, Dr. 
Alvan Talcott, of Guilford, Conn., and Mr. Byron A. Baldwin, 
of Chicago, all deserve special mention. 

Other acknowledgments are made under biographies of in- 
dividuals. 

Corrections or additions, sent to the author, will be noted on a 
copy to be deposited with the " Xew England Historic Gene- 
alogical Society," iu Boston, Mass., for the use of future genealo- 
gists of the family. 

C. C. BALDWIN.

Ci.KVELAMi, Ohio, 

June, 1881. 



The Name Baldwin 



Baldwin is an old name, and quite common as early as the 
Conquest of England. It appears in the roll of Battle Abliey. 
There was in England a Baldwin as early as 672 ; and every one 
knows of the Baldwins, Earls of Flanders, from the one cotempo- 
rary with Alfred the Great, and whose sou, Baldwin 2nd, married 
Elstruth, dan. of Alfred, to the Baldwin 5th, who m. the dau. 
of Kobort of Frauce, and whose dau. Matilda, m. AVilliam the 
Conqueror. Baldwin, Emperor of the East iu 1237, and of the 
Baldwins, Earls of Devonshire, called in JSTormandv Baiidoin des 
Riviers, and in England Baldwin de Tlsle. Baldwin of Redvers, 
the Earl, was the lirst to rebel against Stephan. 

1 am afi'aid the traditionary descent of divers Baldwins in Xcav 
England, from Devonshire, rests ou uo better ground than a fancy; 
that tlie early Baldwins, of Devonshire, were ancestors of a long 
line of the name. This was not so. 

Surnames, however, were not used in England until long after 
the Conquest. Camden observes, that he never could lind an 
hereditary name in England before the Conquest; that they were 
not settled among the common people till about the time of 
Edward 11., (1307 to 1329). Surnames were not from sire, but 
became superadded to the Christian name; so, that finding the 
name in the same locality, even at the Conquest, is no mark of con- 
nection. I believe Camden, in the above remarks, reall}' antedates 
surnames. 

Baldwin de Hampden, of the time of the Conquest, becomes 
plain John Hampden, the patriot of the English Revolution. 
Still it is not without interest that I have found the name so 
common. That the name was in Flanders, in i^ormandy, and 
perhaps elsewhere in France, is well known. 

Rev. E. C. Baldwin, of Brauford, Conn., tells us that a couple 
of Danes, informed him the name was a Danish one and common 
in that country. It exists as Balduin in Germany, and even in 

2

my own city is a German — "August Baldwin." Near Cobleutz, 
on a stream flowing into the Rhine, is Baldwinstein — Baldwin 
stone — a castle and a town. 

In 1870, I was told at Floreace that the name was Italian, and 
common in that vicinity. Miss Strickland says, it is a fine old 
name of Saxon origin, and signifies "Bold AVinner." * 

Arthur, on Family Kames, says : "Baldwin (German). — The 
speedy conqueror, or victor; from Bald, quick or speedy, and win, 
an old word signifying victor, or conqueror, as: Beriwin, famous 
victor; Allwin, all-victorious," etc. Andersen also makes it the 
German Balde, from which Baldwin, bold in battle. 

The ancestors of a very large share of the Baldwins in the 
United States, lived in County Bucks, England, and the name 
seems to have been common there from a very early time. I have 
already alluded to Baldwin de Hampden, whom Lord Nugent, and 
Macaulay after him, says, was one of the Norman favorites of the 
Saxon king, Edward the Confessor. Hampden was and is in the 
same locality where, in after years, Baldwins were plenty. 

In Domesday Book appear also : Baldwin the son of Herluin, 
had, in King Edward's time, a vassal named Turgis, Avho held 
Slow in freehold ; at Domesday it was held by Robert Olgi and 
Robert Ivri. The same Baldwin also held lands in Gloucester- 
shire ; one of his vassals held lauds in Woughton Bucks, " half a 
hide." In Elesberie, Hundred, and in Esenberge— -EUesborough. 
(See map of part of Bucks herein.) " Osbert held of William, one 
hide and a half. There is land to two ploughs, and there are two 
oxen there with one villane. It was and is worth five shillings ; 
in King Edward's time, twenty shillmgs. Baldwin, a vassal of 
Archbishop Stigand's, held this manor and might sell it." The 
same Osbert holds Haddenam of William. "It answered for 
three hides. There is land to five ploughs. There are two in the 
desmesne, and four villanes have three ploughs. It is and was 
worth four pounds; in King Edward's time, one hundred shillings. 
Baldwin, a vassal of Archbishop Stigand's held the manor and 
might sell it." 

In King William's time (of Domesday Book), Baldwin holds a 
farm of William — two hides in Lamva Hundrech' "There is land 



* Its general prevalence very likely dates from the Crusades, and the then popular Baldwins. The name 
may first have been applied to such fortunate boldness as has given Mr. E. S. Baldwin, the present well 

known millionaire of San Frantisco,'the Hohriquet of " Baldwin, the Lucky."

to one plough and a half, and they are three with one villane, an. 
one bordar meadow ior one plough. In the whole it is and wa 
worth twenty shillings. He, himself, held it in King Edward' 
time, and might sell it." 

In Mosleie Hundred, "Baldwin holds of William, in Cicelai 
(Chichley), three hides for one manor. I'here is land to three 
ploughs. There is one in the desmesne ; * and five villaues,t with 
four bordars, t have two ploughs. Meadow for one plough. 
Pannage || for one hundred hogs. It is and always was worth 
forty shillings. He, himself, held it in King Edward's time, and 
might sell it."' 

In Hard mead, seven and a half miles west of Chichley, " Bald- 
win holds of AVilliam, one hide for one manor. There is land to 
one plough, and it is there with three villanes. It is and was 
always worth one mark of silver. Three brothers held this manor ; 
one of these was the vassal of Tochi, and two the vassals of Bald- 
win ; and they might sell." 

In County Herts, in Brickenden: " Baldwin, a certain servant 
of the King's, holds three virgates hind to one plough, and pan- 
nage for forty hogs, and worth ten shillings. In King Edward's 
time held by three brothers." 

The name of Baldwin occasionally appears thereafter, but the 
connection, if any, is unknown. In 1198 Robert Fitz Baldwin 
has lands m Burton Bucks. Anno 1200 he has a line and re- 
covery of lands there from Walter Buistard. First year of King 
John he pays tax ^^ VI marc argent^'' six marks of silver; 1204 he 
suffers fine and recovery; 1254 John Baudwyn has lands in Bur- 
ton ; 1204 Michael Fitz Baldwin receives lands in Haremede, of 
John de Haremede, by fine and recovery; 1252 to 1272, John Le 
Parker and wife Agnes, and John Baldwin and wife Cecil, pay one 
mark and take the property of Gil. de Preston — Agnes and Cecil 
were perhaps his daughters; 1254 Henry de Preston, son and heir 
of Baldwin de Preston, pays homage. 

In Herts, in 1250, Baldwin, son of Baldwin le Fleming, pays a 
fine. In 1277, at an inquisition of the manors of Hathfeud, Adam 

* A desmesne, generally spelled demesne, or demain, was the manor house and the land adjacent which

ialdwin appears. In Chutterbuck's Hertfordshire, is an agree- 
leut between Hugh Evesden, twenty-seventh Abbot of the mon- 
ster}'-, and the Burgesses of St. Albans, confirmed by Edward I., 
n his first year, 1272. It seems to be an agreement about bounds, 
and in one place they are described ^'- et de illenque tayiqae an grange 
Johan le Fls Richard Baldwyne, etde illenque par Touniandich tanque 
a Sopwelle, lane et de illenque tanque au croft Johan de Hampton." 
From 1342 to 1347, Ricard Baldwyne appears to own land abun- 
dantly in Herts; 1441 to 1445, John Baldewyn is rector of Layton 
Hundred of Edwintree. The patron, was the prior and convent 
St. Trinitv, London.

Eeturning to Bucks: in 1340, Henry is taxed at Little Missen- 
den. In the time of Edward III. (he reigned 1329 to 1377), 
Walter Baldwin and Gunneva his wife hold lands in Honeyborn ; 
1358 and 1362, John Baudwyn and Elizabeth his wife parted with 
lands held by the right of Elizabeth, in Nether Winchendon, by 
the usual process of fine and recovery. In 1429, John Baldwin, of 
Aylesbury, appears as party to a similar conversance. Five years 
after, Johannis Baldwyn appears in a list of "the gentry" of 
County Bucks, at Aylesbury, returned by the Commissioners, 12 
Henry VI. John Senior and John Junior were two out of three 
of the founders of the fraternity or brotherhood of the town of 
[Vylesbury, in 1429.

Richard Baldwin died there September 21st, 1485, leaving as 
his next heir his brother John, who, August 11th, 1486, was six- 
teen years old and upwards. The issue of writ upon his death 
was made June 4th, I486. The age appears from a Chancery 
Inquisition, j^ost mortem, 1 Henry VII., taken August 11th, 1486, 
of which the following is a translation:

the first year of the reigu of King Henry the Seventh, before Ricliard Bulstrode, 
Esq're, Escheator of [our] Lord the King, in the aforesaid Countj% by virtue of the 
brief of the Lord King himself, directed to the same Escheator, and proved to this 
Inquisition, by oath of Thomas Garston, Thomas Jarnour, John Lorkyn, Thomas 
Knyght, John Aylewyn, .John Grove, John Davy, John Walter, Thomas Dunton, 
Richard Dene, William atte Lee and Edward Slj'le; who say, on their oath, that 
Richard Baldewyn, named in tlie said brief, was, on the day in which he died, seized 
in his domain as in fee of a certain manor with its appurtenances, in Aylesbury, in 
the aforesaid County, called Otterarflfee; and of one messuage forty and five acres of 
land [i.e. arable land], and ten acres of meadow in Aylesbury aforesaid, in the afore- 
said County, which are held of the Lord K'ng in Socage, by the service of pinching 
litter for the bed of the said Lord King, and straw and grass for adorning (or making- 
comfortable) the lodging (or guest chamber) of the said Lord King thrice in the year, 
if he should come thither, viz: in summer, grass [rushes?] for the aforesaid cause, 
and two wild geese; and in winter, straw and three eels; so that six wild geese, or 
nme eels, may be in the j'ear, if he should come hither thrice in the year. And the 
aforesaid Jurors say that the aforesaid manor land and meadow, with appurtenances, 
are worth per annum, in all revenue beyond the repayments, fifty shillings. And 
further the said .Jurors say, that the same Richard Baldewyn died seized of one

14 Baldwin Genealogy. ' 

This John Baldwin paid a relief upon this manor in 1492 (Madox 
Bar. Ang. 247), and is the same John named in a note to the iirst 
volume of Hume's History of England (p. 297 Harper's ed.), where 
he is erroneously assigned to the time of King Henry II., although 
Hume is right enough in the general use he makes ot it there as 
a note to a statement of the mode of living of Henry II., whose 
apartments were every day in winter covered with clean straw and 
hay, or in summer with green rushes or boughs, lest the gentlemen 
who paid court to him, and who could not, by reason of their great 
number, find a place at table, should soil their fine clothes by 
sitting on a dirty floor. 

This manor of Oterarsfee was originally granted by Henry II. 
to Roger, the King's minstrel, upon the same singular tenure, 
which is recited in a " confirmation " of the manor to Richard, son 
of Robert le Aylesbury, 1 Richard II. (1137), Cal. Rot. Pat. 199. 
The manor had then been in the continuous possession of the 
Aylesbury family since the grant. How the estate came to the 
Baldwins I do not know — possibly, but I think not likely, by 
descent; not unlikel}^ by marriage. The Aylesburys had arms, 
according to Camden, a cross argent in a field of azure; and the 
Baldwins do not seem to have had arms until some branches ob- 
tained them in later times. In 1542, John Baldwin paid subsidies 
on this manor. The most eminent Baldwin of Bucks was Sir John 
Baldwin, Chief Justice of the Common Pleas of England, 1536 to 
1546, when he died. His early history is not easily traced; and 
in fact, the diiferences and mistakes of writers as to his descent 
and descendants will illustrate the perils the genealogist encoun- 
ters. He is commonly said to be the son of William Baldwin, by 
his wife Agnes Dormer, daughter of William Dormer, of West 
"Wycomb. 

The Dormers were an old and wealthy family, whose line con- 
tinued after and rose to an Earldom. Sir Robert, brother of 
Agnes, Sheriff" of Beds and Bucks, was knighted in 1527, and d. 
[■•-552. His son Robert, Baron as Lord Dormer, of W^enge, d. 1616. 
^is grandson Robert became Viscount of Ascot and Earl Caernar- 
on; killed 1643. His sister Elizabeth m. Somerset, Lord Her- 
ert and Marquis of Worcester. William, of West Wycombe, m. 

gnes, dau. of Sir John Lancelyn, a French knight; he died 1506. 

he account ordinarily received of Sir John is, as I have said, that 

> was son of William, who m. Agnes Dormer; but the account 

k 



Sir John Baldwin. 15 

of Jolm, given iu one of the Ilarleian Mss. (No. 1533, Vol. 15), 
says he married a dau. of William Dormer. 

The will of William Dormer, dated 22 Sept., 150G, directed him 
to be buried in the chancel at West Wicombe, and gave his "dau. 
Johan Alburgh 10 marks, to my dau. Margeri Deane 10 marks, to 

my [daughter evidently omitted by the transcriber of the 

will] Agnes Baldwin 10 marks, and to William Baldwin, my 
godson, £10: to John Baldwin the younger 10 marks, to Alice 
Baldweyn 10 marks, to Richard Baldweyn 10 marks, to Pernell 
Colyngborne 10 marks, to John Dormer 10 marks, to Henry Hunt 
10 marks, to Lettice Dormer 10 marks; to Henry, son of Thomas 
Deane, 40s; to Agnes, my wife, £300; to sou Robert £800, and all 
my years to come in my farm of West Wicombe." His executors 
were his wife and son Robert ; overseers, John Baldwin the older, 
and John Colyngborne. The will was proved 7 Oct., 1506. The 
inquisition post mortem of Sir John (1546) shows he had a son 
William, who m. Mary Tryingham, and d. before that, leaving a 
widow but no issue; a dau. Agnes or Ann, who m. Robert Pack- 
iugton, mercer of London, and had a son Thomas, born about 
1523; a dau. Petronella or Parnell, who m. lirst Sir Thomas Ram- 
sey, and second Burlacy; she had a son John, born about 1528. 
Sir John also had a dau. Alice. A probable supposition would be 
that in the will of William Dormer, Sir John was John the elder. 
Agnes was his wife ; William the godson, the William who d. 
before 1546 ; Alice the dau. of Sir John and Richard and John Bald- 
win, perhaps children of Sir John, who died young. The error of 
making Sir John son of William, said to have m. Agnes Dormer, 
arose from an erroneous transcript of the Dormer will, in the 
Collin Peerage, more than a century ago. John Coh'ugborne, the 
other overseer, was a son-in-law, having married Parnell, daugh- 
ter of William Dormer. 

Mr. George W. Baldwin, of Boston, finds in the foreign and 
domestic papers, temp. Henry VIII., many entries relating to 
John Baldwyn : in commission of the peace for Bucks, 1509, 
1510 and 1512; in the commission for goal delivery, Southampton 
Castle, 1511; exempted from juries, 1515 and 1516. In an account 
in 1520 appears an item of fee to John Baldwin; same year tht 
name appears in the sherift* rolls, and in 1523 among the subsidy 
commissioners of Bucks. Sir John waS' appointed "Reader" a^ 
Lincoln 1516, and in 1530, when he was made Sergeant. H

rose rapidly after that and became, as I have said, Chief Jus- 
tice in 1536. It is impossible to tell whether all those early 
entries relate to Sir John. It would seem unnecessary to spe- 
cially exempt him from jury duty, as he was a lawyer. His 
home seems to have been in Aylesbury. He was lord of the 
manor of Aylesbury. His office was very lucrative and he was 
very rich. In 1540 Henry VIII. granted him the home and site 
of Gray Friars, in Aylesbury. There was then a John the 
younger who was likely the one named in will of William Dormer. 
He had also granted him Missenden Abbey; and, in 1544, the fee 
of Dundridge which had fallen to the crown. He built the " new 
road" out of Aylesbury, and I believe the town hall (now pulled 
down). The new road was that leading to Wendover and Mis- 
senden. 

The office held by Sir John was the most desirable in England. 
It was lower in dignity to the Chief Justice of King's Bench or 
Lord Chancellor, but in the days of Henry VIII. the chief judges 
of those courts had work to do that must have tormented them 
excessively. On the death of Sir John, Sir Edward Montague, 
then Chief Justice of King's Bench, solicited and obtained the 
office. Lord Campbell gives the following account: "The sudden 
death of Sir John Baldwin made vacant his office, which had now 
acc^uired the name of 'pillow,' from its allowing its possessor to 
be pat to sleep by the somnolent pleadings of the Sergeant, in 
conducting real actions without any excitement from criminal or 
political trials. Eor profit, it was superior to the Chief Justice- 
ship of the King's Bench; and most of those who had the good 
luck to lay their tripods upon it remained contented with it for 
life. Yet being inferior in rank, etiquette forbade the Chief 
Justice of England to accept it. But Montague, a few days after 
Baldwin's death, solicited and obtained the office. He was ap- 
pointed 6 :N'ov., 1546." 

His probable age would make it unlikely that he was grandson 

of William Dormer. Dormer died 1506, but probably not very 

old, as his brother. Sir Michael, was Sheriff of London 1529, 

Lord Mayor 1541, and died 20 Sept., 1545. Sir John had a 

grandson born as early as 1523. If Sir John, whose home was 

Vylesbury, was the John born in 1470, he was only fifty-three at 

he birth of this grandchild, and was even seventy-five at the 

Bath of Sir Michael in 1545. The genealogical situation is here

quite iuteresting. In 1485 Richard dies, leaving his brother John 
as his heir. In 1506, William Dormer remembers Richard and 
John, and we shall find, further on, that Richard of Dundridge, in 
1552, dies leaving a brother John. The last Richard and John 
were ancestors to most of the Baldwins of America. 

Dundridge, which was granted to Sir John, and also the Braies 
which subsequently belonged in fee to the Richard branch, had 
belonged before to Sir John. It will be seen also that the Bald- 
wins of Dundridge descent took very kindly to the law as a pro- 
fession. I think the probability very great that Richard and 
John, who were living in 1552 when Richard died leaving a family 
of seven children, were nephews of Sir John. The fact that both 
families had considerable property, living close together, lends 
additional color to the supposition. 

Sir John died 24 Oct., 1545, as appears from Co.'s Inquisition 
post mortem, taken 22 Dec, 1546, (37 Henry VIII.) His next 
heirs were his grandchildren, Thomas Packington and John Bur- 
lacy. He left a large estate. The manor of Aylesbury at Domes- 
day survey included, besides Aylesbury and Walton, the parishes 
of Bierton, Boughton and Halcot, and belonged to the King until 
1204, when King John gave it to Geoffrey Fritz Piers, Earl of 
Essex. After several genei'ations, a Joan carried it by marriage 
to Theobald de Boteler ; with some generations intervening, it 
came to James (Butler), Earl of Ormond. Then came two James, 
Earls of Ormond; then Thomas, Earl of Ormand, d. 1515, from 
whom it came to his daughter. Lady Margaret Butler, who m. Sir 
William Boleyn, who d. 1505. Their son. Sir Thomas Boleyn 
(father of Ann), Earl of Wiltshire, sold it to Sir John Baldwin, 
from whom it went to the Packingtons. How completely the town 
was under the control of the Packingtons appears from a letter 
preserved among the Parliament returns of 14 Elizabeth, printed 
by Brayley and Britton (Beauties of England). I give it, it shows '' 
such a consciousness of owning a member of Parliament: 

" To all Christian people to ■whom this present witness shall come: I, Dame Doroth}' ., 
Packington, late wife of Sir John Packington, Knight, Lord and owner of the town ^' 
of Aylesbury, send greeting. Know ye me, the said Dorothy Packington, to have V, 
chosen, named and appointed my truly and well beloved Thomas Litchfield and 
George Burden, Esqr's, to be my burghers of my said town of Aylesbury; and what- 
ever the said Thomas Litchfield and George Burden, burgesses, shall do in the service 
of the Queen's Highness in that present Parliament to be held in Westminster, the 
8th of May next ensuing the date hereof, I, the said Dorothy Packington, do ratify 'fe

and approve to be of ray own act, as fully and wholly as if I were witness or present 
there. In witness whereof to these presents, I have hereunto set my seal, this 4th 
day of May, in the 14th year of the reign of my Sovereign Lady Elizabeth, by the 
grace of God, of England, France and Ireland, Queen," &c. 

Dugclall's Monasticon Anglicannm, Vol. 8, ]^. 1509, gives an 

account of the Convent of Gray Friars in Aylesbury, founded 

1387 by James, Earl of Ormond. It was surrendered to Henry 

VIII., and granted by him (1539) to Sir John, and became his 

country seat. The Packingtons lived there until the time of the 

great civil war, when it was so much injured that it was never 

afterward inhabited. The commissioners ot Henry found the 

monks very poor^ in debt, their garments very coarse, and very 

little stuff of household. So they only sold the glass windows, 

and their ornaments and utensils, leaving the house whole, only 

defacing the church.

Richard Baldwin, of County Bucks,, England, 

AND HIS DESCENDANTS. 



1. RICHARD BALDWIN, described as of "Donrigge," in the 
Parish of Aston Clinton, County of Bucks, yeoman, made his will 16 
Jany,, 6 Edward VI., that is 155f . In the body of the will his name 
is spelled "Bawldwyn" and "Baldwyn." The following is an ab- 
stract of the will, to be buried in the churchyard of Aston Clinton : 
"To daughter Alis, 20 marks when married; to daughter Agnes, 
£12 when 19 ; to daughters Cicely and Letise, each 10£ when 19 ; 
te son John, farm at Dungrove, in parish of Chesham, when 23, but 
if he die before that, to son Henry; to son Richard, my tenements 
in Cholesbury, and the lands belonging thereto, when 23: to wife 
Ellen and son Henry, the rents of his said houses and lands to- 
wards bringing up his children ; to Hughe Baldwin, his brother's 
son, £6 13s. -Id." He gave small bequests to his godchildren, 
tenants and servants; to his son Henry, ten silver spoons and a 
maser;* the rest of his personal estate, to his wife Ellen and 
son Henry equally, who are his executors. He makes the over- 
seers of his will, his brothers John Baldwin and John A^-puke. 
The will was proved in the Court of the Archdeaconry of Bucks 
Co , 21 Feby., 155f , by the executors named. 

The original will of his widow is among the records of that Court, 

but the date of probate is missing. The date of the will is 24th 

(month torn or eaten off), in the 8th year of Queen Elizabeth; 

The date then was the 24th of some month, from 24 Nov., 1565, 

o 24 Oct., 1566. The parish records at Aston, Clinton, begin 

aarriages 8 July, 1561; baptisms, 3 Dec, 1565; burials, 12 Eeby., 

560-1. The burial of Ellen does not there appear. She may 

ave lived with her son John and been buried at Chesham. She 

ay have been sister of John Apuke, named by her husband as 

other-in-law. If so, her family name is represented by the 

lern Pooke. 

* Maser. Wriyht says: "A bowl or g'ob'.et of wool."

overseer of the will of his brother Henry, dated 2d Jany., 1599 or 1600, but Mr. 
Chester finds no further trace of him, and feels certain he left no will, unless he 
went into some other part of the country and it was proved elsewhere. 

4. Richard. He was under twenty-three years old in 1552-'53, and was to have 
the tenements and lands in Cholesbury. He is not named in the wills after that of 
his father. Quere: Whether he was the Richard who resigned, in 1561, as vicar of 
Cropperly, Bucks County. 

Richard Baldwin, of Cholesbury, weaver, made his will, dated 
23 May, 1630, of w^hich the following is an abstract. He gives 
to his wife Isabell one-third of his goods and chattels; to his 
son Nathaniel, £10; to his son Joseph, when twenty-one, one- 
half acre of laud, called Hunt's Wick; to his daughter, Mary 
Pratt, 6s. 8d. ; to her dau. Mary two sheep, and to her other two

or married; all the rest to his son Timoth}-, who was his executor, 
and proved the will in the Court of the Archdeaconry of Bucks, 
16 May, 1633.

one who had the Cholesbury lands in 1552 or 1553, it seems not 
unlikely he was his son. Mr. Chester can find no traces of the

three sons, Timothy, Nathaniel and Joseph, after the probate in 
1633. He thinks there can be but little if any doubt that they are 
the ones who emigrated to New England, appearing in 1639 in 
Milford, Connecticut, with the other Baldwins from Aston Clin- 
ton. The Cholesbury register commences in 1583, and Mr. Ches- 
ter suggests an examination of it might perhaps clear up this 
matter. In 1870, I examined that register somewhat hastily to a 
period considerably after 1658, but failed to find anything of them 
there. 

Other children of Richard and Ellen were: 

5. Alice. Unmarried in 155|^. As she was not named in her mother's will, in 
156|^, she probablj' died and was buried at Aston Clinton before lo-|-2-. when the 
register commences. 

6. Agues. Unmarried and not 19 in 155|^. She married at Aston Clinton, 
18 Nov., 1566, William Grange, but lived less than four months, and was buried 
there 10 March, 1t6=. He remarried and was tinalW buried at Aston Clinton, 14 
Nov., 1582. In his nuncupative will, dated 26 Sept., 1582, he named his wife 
Isabell, and his sons Henry and Thomas, and made Henry Baldwin, his first wife's 
brother, his executor. 

7. Cieely. Unmarried in 155f , and in 1565 or 1566, not named in the will of 
her brother Henrj^ ^e^^- 

8. Lettice. Still unmarried in 1565 or 1566, but named in the will of her 

brother Henry, Iff |, as wife of Foster. In the will of her nephew, Robert 

Baldwin, son of her brother Henry, dated 22 March, 161f, she is mentioned as 
living in Tring, County Herts. 

2. HENRY 2 Richard \ He was his father's executor in 155|, 
and in 157| become owner in fee of Dundridge. His will, as 
"Henry Baldwin, of Dundridge, in the Parish of Aston Clinton, 
Co. Bucks, yeoman," was dated 2 Jany., Ifff. The will was 
proved at London, in the Prerogative Court of Canterbury, 2 
July, 1602, by Richard, his son and executor. He was buried at 
Aston Clinton, 1 June, 1602. In the New England Historical 
and Genealogical Register, for July, 1872, I published a brief 
synopsis of it from a copy I had then obtained.

In my article in tlie "Register," Henry was erroneously stated 
to be the son of a Sylvester. He left to the poor of Aston 
Clinton, 20s; of Cholesbury, 20s.; of Wendov^er 5s.; and of Great 
Missenden, 3s. 4d.; to Edmund Stonehill, of St. Leonard's, 28.; 
to Thomas George, of St. Leonard's, 2s.; to Thomas Chapman,

£100; to James Bonas, £40; to son Richard sundry furniture, 
household stuft', &c., after the death of his wife: to son Sylvester, 
£10, besides what he owed, and to his sons, John and Henry, each 
6s. 8d.; to Henry, son of James Bonas, 6s. 8d.; to Bartholomew 
Gravenge, a ewe and lamb ; to Robert Baldwin, his late servant,^ 
12d.; to each godchild, 6d.; to sister Lettice Foster, 20s.; to Thomas 
King, of Swanborne, 10s.; to Richard Salter, his son-in-la\v, ten 
sheep; all the rest to his wife. His son Richard was his executor 
and his brother, John Baldwin, and George Adams, of Little 



Baldwin Genealoqii. 

rwood, were named as overseers. The original will of his widow 
36 is on file among the Records of the Court of Archdeaconry 
Bucks, in which it was proved. It is dated 4 June, 1522. She 
aed "Alice Baldwin," and is described as of Dundridge. She 
;ires to he buried in the parish church of Aston Clinton, near 
r late husband; gives to her sons, Richard, Sylvester and John, 
each; to her dau. Mary Salter, £10, her best gold ring, best 
jOwu, &c.; to the children of Sylvester, viz: John, Henry, Sylves- 
ter, Richard, William, Alice and Jane, each 40s.; to the children 
of her son John, viz: Richard, John, Mary, Agnes and Martha, 
each 40s.; to the children of her dau. Mary Salter, viz : Richard, 
Thomas, John, David, Susanna, Mary and Sarah, each 40s.; to 
the children of her dau. Jane Bonas, viz: Henry, James, John, 
Christian, Faith, Mary and Jane, each a sum varying from £4 to 
£10; to Henry Stonehill, my son-in-law, and his children, Henry, 
Jane and Agnes, each 40s.; to Anne, dan. of son Robert, 40s.; to 
brother Thomas King, 10s., and to his children, 20s.; to the chil- 
dren of brother Robert King, 20s.; to "William, son of Thomas 
King, 10s.; to sister Maria Montague, 10s. All the residue to be 
divided equally to her sons Richard, Sylvester and John, and dau. 
Mary Salter. It appears that she and her son Richard occupied 
the manor of Dundridge. She appointed her sons Richard and 
John her executors, and as overseers her friends Richard Cripps, 
of St. Leonard's, clerk, and Richard Salter, Sen., of Hemel Hemp- 
stead. If her sons named declined, her executors were to be her 
son Sylvester and her son-in-law, Richard Salter. 

The will was proved 14 Dec, 1626, by her son Richard only. 

- She was buried at Aston Clinton, 23 Nov., 1626. Her will is a 
model one, naming no doubt every living child and grandchild. 
Thomas and Robert King were no doubt her own brothers, and 
Montague may have been her own sister or sister-in-law. The 
first Richard Baldwin, the tenant of Dundridge, and his wife 
Ellen, both directed to be buried in the churchyard, she directs to 
be buried in the church, where she said her husband was also 

/buried, a significant mark between the tenant of a manor and the 
lord of it. 

The children of Henry and Alice, according to their wills, were:

Stonehill, dan. of Sister Anne, £10; to Kichard Baldwyn, son of 
brother Sylvester, £10; to William, son of brother Sylvester, £10; 
to Richard Baldwin, son of Sylvester Baldwin, of Aston Clinton, 
£10; to each of brother's and sister's children, living; at his death, 
40s.; to Joan Chasse, his wife's sister, 40s.; to William Darley, a 
yearly rent of the messuage where he lives; and after nineteen 
other legacies of 20s. each, including the poor of Aston Clinton, 
/ St. Leonard's and Cholesbury, and to each servant 10s., he devises 
the rest of his goods, &c., to Sylvester Baldwin, of Aston Clinton, 
son of his brother Sylvester, who was to be his executor. The 
will was proved in the Court of Archdeaconry, of Bucks, 29 Nov., 
1636, by Sylvester Baldwin, nephew and executor. 

This will was indirectly the means of connecting the family in 
New England with that of Bucks, through conveyances made in 
New England of interests devised under it by the executors of the 
executor, and recorded in New Haven Colony records. From one 
of these conveyances, dimly recorded, Mr. Savage said Sylvester, 
the executor, was son of Richard. Learning from copies of Aston 
Clinton records that the birth there appeared of Sylvester, son of 
Thomas, I thought Savage mistaken, and endeavored so find the 
will, for some time in vain, it not being at Doctor's Commons. It 
was finally found in Oxford, and I obtained a certified copy , 
through the kindness of Dr. Scott, then Master of Baliol College, ' 
and after Dean of Winchester. 

The will was the foundation of my article in the Register. The j 
result of the discovery of the will, as well as other experiences ' 
which appear herein, show the extreme and patient care required 
in such investigations. Our Sylvester proved to be son of neithei 
Richard, as he had been reported to be by Savage ; nor son oi 
Thomas, as appeared from the records of Astpn Clinton. The wil 
attests the very substantial condition of the testator. The legacie 
show him to have been possessed of considerable means, for the^ 
amounts must be multiplied by ten, and the bequests sutficientj 
show the character of the man. After handsomely rememberiij 
all his immediate relations, he did not forget his tenants, the po 
widows, and other poor in his neighborhood, and finally his s 
vants. That he was the owner of Dundridge, is amply proved 
his bequeathing to his heir "the cofi'er containing the evidenc 
that is, his title deeds. It was his father's before him, or joii

with him, and they purchased it from the Pakington's, who had 
it from Sir John Baklwin. The statement in Lipscombe's History 
of Bucks, VoL 2, p. 96, that it ever belonged to Sylvester Bald- 
win, is theref )re an error — Lipscombe probably confounded Henry, 
son of Sylvester, with the father. 

Richard died childless, and was buried at Aston Clinton, 14 Oct., 1630. He m. at 

Cholesbur}', , 1592. Cliistian Touckfield, i.e. Tuckfield, who survived him, and 

made her will 16 Feb'y, 1641, describing herself of Dundridge, widow. The follow- 
ing is an abstract :

miah, my kinsman. €20 each; to Del)orah Weston, of Chesham, widow, two pair of 
sheets; to sister Joane Chace, £10; to kinsman Richard Arnold, a silver beaker, the 
same to go to his son at his death; to Richard Neale, who dwelt with my cousin 
Parrett, 10s. ; Kinsman Abraham Parrett, 10s. ; residue of goods, &c. , to my sister

Chace, my kinsman Richard Arnold and my kinsman jNIary Parrett equall3\ Kinsman

10. SYLVESTER ^ Henry '^ Kichard, ^ through whom— his elder 
brother Richard having died childless — the line of the family 
continued. He was living at the date of his grandmother's will, 
lo6f ; at that of his mother's, 4 June, 1(322, but was evidently dead 
at that of Richard's, 18 Feby., 163|. There seems little room to 
doubt that he was the Sylvester who m. at Cholesbury, 28 Sept., 
1590, Jane Wells. The burial of his son George as son Sylvester, 
of Dundridge, appears in Cholesbury, 21 Nov., 1596. In the pedi- 
gree entered by his grandson, in the visitation of Buckingham- 
shire, 1669, he is called of " Milton, in Bedfordshire." There are 
two Miltons in that county. In Milton, Bryant, the name of 
Baldwin does not appear. In Milton, Ernest, near Bedford, his 
own name does not appear, but the marriage and burial of one of 
his daughters, and perhaps the burial of his eldest son. It seems 
likely the eldest son had settled in Milton, and that his father may

have lived with him during the latter part of his life. It is pos- 
sible he died shortly before 163f , for there is a hiatus iu the burial 
register there, from 6 iSTov., 1632 to 1 May, 1634. The hiatus in 
Cholesbury extends from 1611 to 1669, He was no doubt dead by 
163f , the date of Kichard's will. ISTo will or administration is 
found of himself or his wife. His children, however, are happily 
identified by wills of his relatives and other records. 

16. George died young, and buried at Cliolesbury, 21 Nov., 1596. 

17. Jolin living l|^-g-|, but evidently dead at the date of his uncle's will, Feb'j-,

little doubt he was the John buried at .Milton Ernest, in Bedfordshire, 10 Feb'y, 
163^. He had resided there some years, for he signed the parish register as church 
warden for the year 1627, 1629 and 1630. No baptisms of children or burial of a 
wife appear. It is probable he died unmarried. He however made a will, for a 
minute of it appears in the calender of the Archdeaconry Court of Bedfordshire, 
now at Northampton, but the will itself has disappeared from iis proper bundle. 
It was likely returned to the executor after probate.

year. The children of John Edwards, named in the will of her brother Henry, 
were by a second wife, the eldest of whom were baptised at Milton Ernest in 1639.

son of Henry and Alice Baldwin. His father left him in his will,

near a dwelling, Webster), called "Stybbings," in AYendover, and 
he and his children were remembered in the will of his mother in 
1622. His brother Richard, in 163|, bequeathed him £20, equiva- 
lent to §1.000 at the present day, and he was living at the date of 
his son Richard's w^ill iu 1634. He left no will, but on the 14

Church Herts, yeoman, dated 22 March, 160|, was proved 1 April 
following by his brother Richard, his executor. He directed to be 
buried in the churchyard of North Church. He bequeathed 10s. 
to his aunt Lettice Foster, then of Tring, and named his brother 
Salter overseer of his will. He left small bequests to the poor of 
St. Leonard's and Cholesbury. The residue of his estate, which 
appears to have been small, he left equally to his wife Joane, and 
his daughter Anne. He evidently died very young, and this dau. 
Anne was his only child, and then an infant. She was living in

24. Richard. His will, as citizen and girdler, at London, dated 9 June, ■r^ 
proved 23 July, 1684, in the Prerogative Court of Canterburj\ by two Lo'idoii\ 
friends, Henry Shaw and Hemy Poole. He seems to have been a youn'; man, 
certainly unmarried, just commencing business with a partner named George 
Thwaites; and he gives the ainouiit of his investment £270, of which he ^ave £120 
to his "dear father and mother;" £30 to his brother .John; sums of £1.5 to £30 to 
his brothers-in-law, Thomas Dudbury, Thomas Ward and Thomas Butcher; to his 
Uncle Richard a ring worth 20s. ; and 40s. to the poor of Chesham, where lie says 
lie was born. The rest of his bequests were to friends and servants in London. 

25. John, named in the wills of his grandmother, m 1622; Uncle Richard, 1683^, 
and brother Richard, 1634. 

Mr. Chester savs he sees no good reason why this son may not 
have been the emigrant, afterwards known as John Baldwin, of 
Xorwich, about whose early history so little is known, and nothing 
certainly. The traditions that have come down about him are so 
vague as to be practically valueless. He would have been own 
cousin of Sylvester, the emigrant, though doubtless much his 
junior, as he was a younger son of a still younger son. That he 
must have been very young in 1622, is evident from the fact that 
his elder brother had only just completed his apprenticeship, and 
engaged in business twelve 3'ears later. Other cousins, the Bry- 
ants and Stonehills of the same generation, appear to have also 
gone to New England about the same time. It seems probable 
that he was the "John Baldwin, mercer," who, with his mother, 
siffiied the " bond when she administered on his father's estate, in 
" 1637. If so, he must have only just commenced business, and 
" there is no reason why he may not have given this up, and gone 
" with his relations to l!^ew England. In favor of this theory is 
" the strong fact that no further trace of him can be found at 
" Chesham, nor elsewhere in this country. If not married until 
" 1653, as is said, he would then still have been comparatively a 
" young man, and probably not far from 35. Admitting that 
" John of ]!*s'orwich, did not go to Guilford in 1689 a mere child — 
" and on this point there is really no evidence whatever — there is 
'' no good reason why this John may not have been that emigrant ; , 
" Avhile in favor of it is his near relationship to the other emi- I 

'' grants of his name, and the fact of his disappearance here. It • 

" seems improbable that if he had continued as a mercer at dies- j^H 
" ham, he would not have married, had children baptised, and '

14. MARY =^ Henry 2 Richard 1 m. at Aston Clinton, 30 Jan'} 
159f , Richard Salter, very likely the son of Richard Salter, senior,

the son-in-law was alternate executor. Both were living 1G22, with 
seven children : 

37. Ricliard.

40. David, living 163^. 

41. Susan a. 

42. Mary, living 163f. 

43. Sarah, living 1631. 

Each of these children, in 1622, had 40 shillings from their grand- 
mother. After 163f , Mr. Chester finds nothing of these, unless 
David was David Salter, of Agmondesham, Bucks Co., tanner, 
whose nuncupative will, made 11 April, 1669, was 6 proved Oct. 
following by his relict Sarah, sole legatee. 

15. AG^N'ES 3 Henry - Richard^- She is called Anne in the wiR 
of Richard, her brother, but Agnes in that of her mother, and J 
the parish register. She was baptised at Aston Clinton, July, 
1579. She married Henry Stonehill, and w^as dead in 1622, her 
husband three children surviving. 

44. Henry had from his uncle Kichard by his will, dated 168f, £30, and 20 
acres of free land in Drayton Beauchamp. He was probably the Henry Stonehill 
who emigrated to New England, settling with his relatives, Baldwins and Bryants, 
in Milford in 1639, and returning in 1646 to England, and it is said by Lambert to 
London. 

45. Jane perhaps died young, as not mentioned, in 163f, in the will of her 
Uncle Richard. 

46. Agnes. Probably the one called, in 163f , in the will of her Uncle Richard, 
Anne, and given £10. 

18. HEXRY ' Sylvester ^ Henry ^ Richard ^- He was living If^f 
to be mentioned in his grandfather's will. By the death of two 
elder brothers, he became next heir, as well as considerable lega- 
tee of his uncle Richard's will, 163f, proved 1636. He appears to 
have become a barrister-at-law, and was of Clifford's Inn, London. 
He married Mary, only daughter and heir of Edward Hurst, of 
Kingston-upon-Thames, Co. Surrey, where she was baptised, 28 
July, 1605. She died first. He afterwards lived at Guilford, Co.

made his will 11 Sept., 1661, describing himself of Guilford, gen- 
tleman, as he had a right to do, being a barrister, though possessing 
no coat of arms. The following is a full abstract of his will: 

To the poor people of Guildford, £3; to Mr. Holland, minister 
there, for ray funeral sermon, £3; to the ministers of St. Leon- 
ard's and Aston Clinton, Co. Bucks, each 20s.; poor of St. Leon- 
ards, 40s. I release my brother William the debt to me owing, 
if any there be, and give to my nephew, William Baldwin, and 
his sister Margaret, each £20; and to my niece Markwick, £10. 
I release to Henry Edwards, and Alice his sister, the arrearages 
of my brother John Edward's account appearing to be due to me, 
they allowing the £15 I am to pay for binding the said Henry 
apprentice; niece Sarah, daughter of brother Richard Baldwyn, 
£20, and to her and her heirs the tenement at East End, in Flit- 
wick, Co. Bedford, devised to me by m}^ said brother Richard. 
To dan. Jane, all my child bed linen, and all my late wife's rings, 
cabinets, &c.; also £500 at her marriage. To Edward, my son, 
ludry household stufi", the goods in my chamber at Cliftbrd's Inn, 
sundry plate, &c.; to my grandchild, Elizabeth Baldwin, £100 

when 21. " I give to y*^ use of my brother Silvester, , or the 

issue of them shall be equally to be divided;" to the 

children of my kinsman, John Tories, equally, £60. I appoint as 
my executors Thomas my son, and Jane my daughter, my over- 
seers, to have the care of my estate until my son Thomas be 24, 
and my daughter Jane be 21 years of age. 

The will was proved in the Prerogative Court of Canterbur}^ 20 
March, 166|, by both executors. It is evident he originally de- 
signed leaving legacies to the children of his brother Sylvester, or 
their children if they were dead; but eventually changed his mind, 
perhaps because inconvenient to obtain them. The blanks were 
never filled. He signed his name Baldwyn. 

47. Edward. + 

48. Thomas. He made his will IG Jul}', 1676, signing Baldwin, describing 
himself as of Guildford, Co. Surry, Gentleman, which he was by right, as will 
appear hereafter. He left rings and other legacies to several friends; but the only 
bequests to his relations were : To Uncle William Baldwin, and his son William 
Baldwin, £100 each; all residue to his dear brother Edward, Esq., who was execu- 
tor. He directed to be buried in St. Marj-'s Parish, in Guildford, near his father. 
The will was proved 21 Feb'y, 167f 

49. Jane. Not mentioned in the will of her brother.

19. SYLVESTERS Sylvester ^Ulenry-^RieharcP- lie was tl 
emigrant to I^Tew England, who died on board ship Martin, Jun 
or Julv, 1G38. He is lirst mentioned in the will of his nneh 
Richard in 163|, as executor and residuary leii'atee — a hiij-h com- 
pliment to his nephew from a man of the property and apparent 
sense of Richard, especially as the next heir of Richard was a 

prosperous lawyer. He married Sarah , whose surname Hon 

John D. Baldwin, of Worcester, informed me long since, on the 
authority of Hon. Ralph D. Smith, of Guilford, Conn., was Brv 
aijt. Mr. Smith, a very high authority in early relationships ^/ 
Connecticut, could not some years after, on my visiting him in 
Guilford, give me his authority. The fact, however, will appear 
very probable, as the English relationship and acquaintance of the 
Bryants was then unknown, having been afterwards discovered 
by myself. They were married in England, and the following 
children were baptised to them in Aston Clinton, Bucks Co., 
England: 

50. Sarah, 22 Apl.. 1621, m. Beujamin Fenn, of Milford, Ct.4- 

51. Richard, 25 Aug., 1622, here in the 5th generation, but hereafter in this

2nd, William East, of the same place. + 

54. Martha, 20 April, 1628. Neither she nor her children appear iii her motlier's 
very full will. I conclude she died unmarried. 

55. Samuel, 1 July, 1632; buried 4 Jan'y, 163^^.

Stoningtou, Connecticut. -1- 

58. Ruth. Baptism not appearing, but her name in Sylvester's nuncupative 
will at Boston. She probably died young, as neither she nor representatives appear 
in her mother's very full will. 

At a Court of Assistants, held at Boston, the 4th of the 7th 
month, 1638, (4 Sept., 1G38,) 

" The will of Silvester Bauldwin was p'sented unto the Court, 
" and his wife Sarah and sonne Rich'd were allowed executors

vichard, our general court, 4 Se}>t. following, committed the ad- 

linistration."' 

The six children are named as Kichard, Sarah, Mary, Martha,

be his son; but that could not be for want of age, and because 

" his interest therein. The Avitness likely was either John of 

^N \vich, or old John of Milford. 

I sought for this will or its record as long ago as 1860, but could 
not find it, nor could Mr. Savage for me, although he kindly left 
his residence with me and sought in the Probate and Secretary of 
State's office. I believe it to be in the latter office, or at least to 
have been there. The widow went with the emigrants to Xew 
Haven, and was the widow Baldwin enrolled among the first 
planters there, five in her family, and £300 in the list, and 
lots were afterward drawn in her right. She married, 1640^ 
John Astwood, of Milford, Connecticut, when her property was 
valued at £800, besides several parcels of land. John Astwood 
came m the spring of 1635, aged 26, a husbandman, from Stan- 
stead Abbey, Hertfordshire. He arrived in the Hopewell, Capt. 
William Bundoch. He settled at Roxbury, Mass., Avith his brother 
James. He was freeman there 3 March, 1636; removed to Mil- 
lord, 1639. 

Milford joined Is^ew Haven colony in 1643, and he was their 
representative at general court that and the next year, and perhaps 
after. In 1653 and 1654, he was chosen at general election Magis- 
trate for Milford, and as such Avas present at several general courts. 
He Avas a leading man in Milford, a local Magistrate-Captain — 
how does not appear. In 1649, he was a Commissioner in the 
general meeting of NeAv England Colonies, and again, 1653, with 
the Governor, Eaton. The same year, Avith the Governor, the 
Deputy and tAvo other Magistrates, he sat upon the case of Mis- 
tress Godmau, Avho complained that divers persons accused her ia^s 
a AA'itch. The Court thought she "hath unjustly called heither 
the severall p sons before named, being she can proA^e nothing 
against them, and that her cariage doth justly render her sus- 
pitious of wichcraft, av^i she herself in so many Avords confesseth,

and gave her the wholesome "charge not to goe in an offensive 
way to folkes' homes in a rayling manner, as it seems she hath 
done, but that she keepe her place and meddle w^h her own 
business." 

October, 1053, he was appointed the representative for jSTew 
Haven Colony, in London; and a letter was agreed to be written 
for the General Court, to Mr. Hopkins, to interest him to assist 
Captain Astwood. It appears that he had business of his own 
there, very probably in connection with his brother's estate, Avho 
had just died in Koxbury, leaving property in England, and whose 
wife announced her intention to return to England. lie died in 
London, If his wife accompanied him, she returned, and died in 
ils'ovember, 1669, as her will, dated 9th of that month, was proved

"The Soul's Conflict," named in the foregoing will, was written by that eminent 
Puritan divine. Rev. Richard Sibbs, D.D., Ma.ster of Catharine Hall, in Oxford, and 
l)reacher of Gray's Inn, London. I had a lively curiosity to know what book my 
ancestress left to her daughter, but got no light until I found that famous Isaak 
Walton, of angling memory, left by his will to one son " Sibbs, his ' Soule's Conflict,' 
and to another "Sibbs, his 'Bruised Reed.'" The first book of Sibbs I bought was 
entitled "Bowels Opened, or a Discoverj- of the Near and Dear Love Union and 
" Communion betwixt Christ and His Church, and consequently betwixt Him and 
'every Believing Soul; in several Sermons on the 4th, 5th and 6th Chapters of 
'■' Canticles." 

This book shows well the character of th*? man, wlnse love of God amounted to a 

passion. He felt in his soul all those strong eastern expressions of the Canticles 

s'hich cany little force to most. The next book was an old sermon, which, from the 

)M marks upon it. seems to have "been preached at our house " at various earlj'^ 

imes in New England. Sibbes became preacher at Gray's Inn Chapel in 1C18; in 

626, Master of Katharine Hall, Oxford; and from then to his death, in 1636, divided 

is time between the two places. " The Soule's Conflict and Victory over Itself hx 

Faith. Psalm c. XVI : ' Return unto thy rest, O mj' soul, for the Lord hath dealt 
' bountifull}' with thee,' " is a collection of sermons preached at Gray's Inn; and it 
■ very probable that Ricliard Baldwin, of Milford, while in the office of his uncle 
leury, in London, may have heard some of them. It is full of fervid, intelligent 
let}*, and the .selection of this book does credit to Mrs. Astwood. Neal's " Puritans '' 
lys he was " one of the most celebrated preachers of his time, well known in the 
earned world — a burning and a shining light. His works discover him to have been 
f a heavenly, evangelical spirit, the comforts of which he enjoyed at his death." 

The original edition of the book lies before me, printed 1635, almost as thick as it is 

ide, with a wide margin, and no doubt a fine book in its day. It has been reprinted 

'veral times, the finest reprint being the Pickering, of 1837.

20. RICHARD^ Sylvester 3 Henry ^ Richard^ was living in 
1622 and 1G3|, but was ap[)arently dead at the date of tlie will of 
his brother Henry, in IGOl. By his wife Phillippa, who was buried 
at Aston Clinton 30 July, 1G41, he had the following children, 
whose baptisms appear as follows in the records of that parish: 

59. Rebecca, 23 Juue, IGll. 

60. Alice, 22 Aug., 1613. 

61. John, lOFeb'y, 1614 

62. Jane, 12 April, 1618. 

63. Henry, 8 Feb'y, 162i. 

64. Sarah. 23d March, 152|. 

Mr. Chester finds no trace of these children, save that Sarah was 
named in the will of her uncle Henry, in 16(31. I think he was 
the Richard who m. in Aylesbury, in April, 1607, Phillipa Corb- 
man, as nearly as I can make out the name in the old record there. 
There was a Richard Baldwin in Braintree, Mass., in 1637. His 
name appears only in Winthrop's History of New England, vol. 2, 
p. 348. He Jiad a daughter Jane, of some age. He appears no 
more in Xew Encrland, and if he was this Richard, no doubt 
returned to England, where his wife died 1641. I should look to 
him soonest of any as the father of John of Billerica, and Henry 
of Woburn. John and Henry both married in "Woburn. They 
lived at some distance from each other, but Henry was witness to , 
John's will ill 1686. 

The Baldwins of Billerica, descendants of John, write: ''We 
always supposed John and Henry, of Woburn, were brothers." 
By tradition reduced to writing, of a great-grandson of John, he - 
came from Hertfordshire, which would seem to identify him with 
the locality of Baldwins in the adjoining parishes of Bucks and 
Herts. No assistance to this conjecture is derived from the names 
given by John and Henry to their respective children, which seem, 
however, to be taken largely from the Richardsons.

In 168f, she is named in the Avill c.f her uncle Richard with her 
son Richard, and receives with him "all that tenement, with the 
appurtenances, being freeholde lying and being in Wendover 
towne, to the said Anne and her sonne Richard, and their heires 
forever, and fortie-eiglit pounds, eight pence, in mony, to be paid 
within three months after my decease." Alexander Bryan was 
son of Thomas Bryan, and baptised in Aylesbury, 29 Sept., 1002. 
where I accidentally found the entry in 1870. He had sisters bapt. 
there: Frances, 29 March, 1604; Mary, 19 April, 1606; Elizabeth, 
2 Kov., 160-. Alexander and his wife were among the tirst settlers 
of Milford, Conn., in 16o9. He was a man of great influence in 
the Colony of New Haven, and after the union with Connecticut, 
assistant from". 1668 to 1673. His wife died there 20 Feb'y, 1661, 
and he m. 2nd the widow of Samuel Fitch, the schoolmaster of 
Hartford, and d. there between 20 July and 6 Nov., 1679. He and 
his son Richard were prominent and leading merchants, engaged 
in domestic and foreign trade. Both in succession were the richest 
men in Milford, it is said.

very quaint and characteristic deed is in my possession. "I'lie 
names of both are spelled indifferently Bryan or Bryant. It 
is labeled "Deed of Purchase, by Mr. E. JJaldwin. of the two

47. EDWARD ■' Henry ' Sylvester^ Henry ^ Richard, ^ wlio was 
a bari'ister, and subsequently a Bencher of the Inner Temple, and 
eventually a ' ocice of the Peace, and of the Quorum in the County 
of Bucks, ile married Elizabeth, daughter of Richard Turfrej'', 
of London, who died before him and was buried at Beaconslield. 
Her mother, Susana, re-married his distant kinsman, Richard 
Baldwin, of Beaconsiield, who, in 16H1, bequeathed to him the 
capital messuage, &c., known as Wilton's, in Beaconsfield, which, 
with his other inherited estate, must have rendered him a man of 
considerable wealth, and given liim a decided position among the 
landed gentry of tlie County. In order to confirm this position, 
and place himself on a recognized social equality with his neigh- 
bors, he ap[)lied, the next year, for a grant of Arms, and on the 
19th of Dec, 16t)2, the then ,Clarenceucx,,King of Arms, granted 
to him and to his brother Thomas, and their descendants, the fol- 
lowing coat and crest: 

"Arms : Argent, a chevron ermines between 3 liazel sprigs vert. 
Crest : A squirrel sejant, or, holding a hazel sprig vert.*' 

This was a Grant, and not a Confirmation of arms; and it is onlv 
necessary to point out, that, if on that occasion he could have 
shown his descent from any family of Baldwin entitled to arms, 
the coat of that family would have been confirmfd to him as a 
matter of right. That he could not do so, is prima facie ^yvov ad. 
bv the fact that it was found necessarv to incur the infinitelv 
greater expense of an original grant. This completes, says Mr. 
Chester, my evidence and arguments against the possibility that 
the Baldwins of Aston Clinton descended from any heraldic family 
of the name, being the last in date, and the most important, though 
it precedes the other evidences to be found in the remaining por- 
tion of the narrative. On the occasion of the Herald's Visitation

The orio^inal is in the Colleo^e of Arms, 

Edward Baldwin made his will 29 May, 1691, describing himself 
as "a Bencher of the Inner Temple, London, now dwelling at my 
house at Wilton's, in the parish of Beaconsfield, Co. Bucks."' The 
following is a full abstract: 

" To be buried at the discretion of my eldest son Richard Bald- 
win, Esq. To the poor of Beaconsfield, £5. Whereas, by Inden- 
tures, dated 7 Xov., 1690, between me of the 1-*^ party; Thomas 
Colston, ' Esq., and Merchant London, and Elizabeth Monteth, 
widow, of the 2"^^ part ; and my said son, Richard Baldwin, of the 
3'''^ part ; I reserved certain powers, &c. I now appoint W"'- West- 
brooke, of Ferring, Co. Sussex, Esq.; William Hill, the younger, 
now of Beaconsfield, Co. Bucks, 3'eomau, and Elizabeth Mytton, 
my eldest daughter, wife of Richard Mytton, of Alderman bury, 
London, Gent., executors in trust of this my will — I direct that 
the sums named in said Indentures, as portions for my 3 sons and 
2 daughters, viz : Edward, Stephen and Thomas, Maria and Sarah, 
be paid to said sons at their respective ages of 21, and to said 
daughters at 21 or marriage — my said son Stephen to be paid 
£300, bequeathed to him by the wills of Sir. Stephen White, Kt., 
and Stephen AVhite, of London, Merchant, and my said daughter 
Sarah, to be paid £20, bequeathed her by her godmother, Mrs. 
White, of Hackney. I direct that all my said children, who were 
living at the death of my mother-in-law, Susanna Baldwin, widow, 
be paid by my son Richard, £10 each for a piece of plate ; to my 
daughter Baldwin, my eldest son's wife, my mohair bed, &c.; to 
my daughter Maria my diamond ring, which my wife gave me ; 



Richard, of County Bucks, England. 49 

to my beloved grandcbikl, Elizabeth Mytton, a ring, of 30 shillings 
value. My daughter Mytton, a good, dutiful child, desires rne to 
leave her nothing, so I give to her and her husband mourning 
only. I appoint my son Richard joint executor with those above 
named." 

The Avill was proved in the Prerogative Court of Canterbury, 
1 Mch., 1(!9|, by the son of Richard, power being reserved to the 
other executors. 

The children of Edward Baldwin, by his wife Elizabeth Turfrey? 
were as follows : 

71. Henry, called son and heir in 16(i9, then aged 6 years. He matriculated at 
Oxford, from Mertou College, 30 May, 1679, aged IG, but took no degree. He died 
in his father's lifetime, and probably unmarried, certainly leaving no issue. 

72. Richard. + 

73. Edward, second surviving son in 1G91, not 21. 

74. Stephen, third surviving son in 1691. 

75. Thomas, fourth surviving son in 1691. 

76. Elizabeth, eldest daughter, and named in her grandfather's will in 1661. 
She became the second wife of Richard Mytton, of London, Gent., to whom she 
was married, at St. Bride's, Fleet Street, London, 7 Feb'y, 168|-. They had a child 
baptised at St. Mary, Aldermaubury, London, in 1692, and her husband wa-; l)iuied 
there 22 Feb. f&ff • 

77. 3Iaria, second daughter in 1691, unmarried and not 21. 

88. Sarah, third daughter in 1691, unmarried and not 21. Of the three youngest 
sons and two youngest daughters, says Mr. Chester, have discovered nothing later. 

50. SARAH -^ Sylvester ^ Sylvester ^ Henry ^ Richard, ^ bapt. 22 
April, 1G21, in Aston Clinton, Co. Bucks, England, came to jS'ew 
England no doubt with her parents on the ocean, June, 1638, 
in ship Martin. She married Hon. Benjamin Fenn, of Milford, 
Conn. ^ . ^ ^ 

He was first of Dorchester, and Savage says, perhaps came 
1630, in the Mary & John ; yet his name does not appear until 
1638, soon after which he removed to Milford. He was Representa- 
tive for Alilford 1653 ; an Assistant of that Colony 1654. He favored 
the union with Connecticut, and was an Assistant of the United 
Colony from 1665 to 1672, when he died. His estate was large, 




50 Baldwin Genealoj/jj. 

here and in England, Co. Bucks, valued at £600; rents due, £240, 
and this was by will given to Samuel, says Savage. He was likely 
from Aylesbury, as he seems to have had property there. Hardly 
any name appears more frequently than his in l^ew Haven Colo- 
nial Records, after 1653, in various public services. One of the 
earliest was to raise in silver if possible four pounds, to pay that 
amount borrowed by the Commissioners in Boston. He and Capt. 
Astwood were to treat w* Ensigne Bryan or James Roggers, and 
see "if they can get silver, or Beaver, or other pay, though with 
"good alloAvance, to answer these things; but if that amount 
" cannot bee, that then so much butter bee gott to cary into the 
" Bay as will sell for money to make up this some ; but if that will 
"not be procured, then so much of this some that come from 
" Guilford must be carried and sould as well as it can." In 1661 
and the next two years, he and the Governor were the chosen 
Commissioners for New Haven Colony. 

She died 29 April, 1663, and he married, 12 March, 1664, 
Susanna Ward. He d. 1672; will dated 14 Sept., and proved 14 
l^ov. His children bj^ his second wife were Samuel, Susanna and 
James. The Avidow's will, dated 9 Sept., 1674, shows she was 
about to go to England. She gives her property chiefly to James 
and Susanna, and refers to her aged mother, Susanna Wood or 
Ward, of Suckle}', in County Worcester. It is probable she did 
not return. 

79. Benjaniia Fena, bapt. 20 Sept., 1640, iu :\rilford. He removed to Guilford 
He married Mfliitable, dau. Jas])er Gunn, of Milford, and d. 1689, leaving the 
following children: Benjamin, Mary and .Joseph, all bapt. 1667; Sarah, bapt. 1668; 
Mehitable, Hannah and Martha, bapt. 1677; and Susanna. He died 1659.* 

80. Joseph Fenu, bapt. 20 Nov., 1642, of Norwich; died 1671, leaving no 
famil3^ He went to Guilford to be schoolmaster, but the negotiation fell through, 

'■ I am sorry I eannot give the succeeding' Fcnns more precisely. Benjamin above, bapt. 1667, was the 
Deacon Benjamin of Jlilford, whose will, dated 21 July, 1727, was presented (Xew Haven Probate Records 
7, p. 24,) by Capt. Benjamin Fenn, one of the executors. The testator remembers his granddaughter, 
Hannah Fenn, and his grandson, Benjamin Fenn, his son Benjamin Fenn, and his daughter Mehitable 
Piatt, vnie of .Joseph. Among other matters, is one-third of "my real estate lying in the town of Alsberv, in 
the Coimty of Bucks, within Old England, and one-third of the rents and profits now due." His tomb- 
stone in Milford says he d. Aug. 29, 1732, in his 71st year. His wife Sarah d. May 26, 1727, in her G4th year. 
The will of Capt. Benjamin Fenn of Milford, dated 31 May, 1763, was presented by Capt. Benjamin, e.vecutor. 
The testator remembered his wife Sarah; his dau. Hannah Johnson, wife of Seth; his great-granddaughter 
Sarah Fowler, dau. of his granddaughter, wife of Jonathan Fowler, late of Jlilford, to be paid to her 
when IS, or married. To his son Benjamin, and his oldest son Benjamin. To his son Benjamin, until 
his daughter, Sarah Prince Fenn, arrives at eighteen, and balance to his son Benjamin. The tombstone of 
Capt. Benjamin says he was many years a ruling elder in the ehurch; tiled Jan'y 10, 1770, at 80 year*. His 
"amiable consort" Sarah May 9, 1773, at 86 years. The next stone is Col. Benjamin Fenn died Feb'y 30, 
(how is this?) 1778, in his 58th year. \ext, Lieut. Benjamin Fenu died Oct. 27, 1780, in his 39th year.

bapt. 11 Oct,, 1640, son of John of that place. She had children: Sarah, 100:3. who 
had legacy, from her gr. grandmother Astwood, of a pewter platter, m:irked with

Conn., son of Governor Leete. He died June, 1087, aud she m. 2">i. Captain 
Stephen Bradley, of Guilford. She died 20 June, 1701. Captain Bradley was a very 
prominent man. fi-equeutly deputj', in command of troops, and employed in public 
negotiations. He had^ix children by his first wife, but none by his second, and died 
20 June, 1702; On the personal authority of the late Ralph D. Smith, I state that 
she was a very leading and prominent lady in Guilford. Her one daughter, l)y her 
first husband, Mary, m. l^t Aug. 1691, Hon. James Hooker (Judge), of Farmington 
and Guilford, Conn. He was son of Rev. Samuel Hooker, who was brother-in-law 
to Rev. Roger Newton. James died 12 March, 1740, aud his wife 5 Oct., 1752.

Robert Plum, of Branford and Milford, who d., says Savage, 12 
May, 1655: but it appears, from isTew Haven Colonial Records, 
Vol. 1, p, 15, that his will, dated 25 July, 1655, was proved 17 
Dec, 1655, at Milford. The inventory was three hundred pounds, 
two shillings and five pence. The widow m. 1676, as his second

85. John Plum, bapt. 1646. Savage says, erroueously, that he is the only one 
known to have left issue. .John was a man of distinction. He m., 24 Nov., 1668, 
Elizabeth Norton; and Savage names only children: Elizabeth, 1669; John, 1671; 
Mary, 1673; adding perhaps more. One more is Sarah, dau. Mr. John Plum, of 
Milford, who married, 25 Nov., 1702, Joseph Kellogg, of Norwalk, and had eh.: 
Ehzabeth, 5 Oct., 1703: Sarah. 5 Apl., 1706; Joseph, 26 Sept., 1707; Rachel, 15' 
July. 1710; Hannah 1 Aug., 1712. Mrs. K. died 17 Aug., 1712. and he m. 2nd, 
according to Hall's Norwalk, p. 204, same day, widow Mary Lyon, and had ch. : 
David, 28 Sept., 1715; Benjamin, 26 Sept., 1716. It is likely the same day is an 
error. The foregoing John, b. 1671. was of Milford; and in 1816, his wife Rachel, 
who was his administratrix, was chosen guardian of his eldest son John, whose 
adm. is granted, 1738, to his son Joseph, widow declining. In the same volume 
(5 N. H. Probate Rec), is estate Samuel, apparently son of Rachel, and whose wife 
is Mehitable. 

86. Robert Plum, b. 1648. (Vol. 3, p. 13, N. H. Prob. Rec, 27 Feb'y, 1 'Of, is 
the. inventory of his estate, as Mr. Robert Plum, of Milford.)

88. Samuel Plum, b. 1653. 

89. Joseph Plum, b. 10 July, 1655. I had Ijelieved him to be the one. admin- 
istration on whose estate, of .Milford, was given 8 Apl., 1714 (N. H. Pro. Rec), to 
widow Su.sannah, with ch. : Su.sanna, ae. 12; Joseph, 10; Ann, 7; and Noah 5; but 
perhaps that was the Josepli who Savage says was the son of John, of New London, 
and removed to Milfonl abiut 1700 I agree with Mr. Savage, "that it seems 
impo.ssible to pick up all these Plums."

Holborn, 12 June, 1662. She survived her husband, but died 
before 20 Aug'., 1734, leaving no will that can be found, and very 
probably having remarried. Richard Baldwin made his will 8 
Dec, 1696, calling himself of Beaeonsfield, Esquire. The follow-

54 Baldwin Genealogy. 

The will was proved, in the Prerogative Court of Canterhiirj, 
21 March, 169|, hy the relict Anne. The children of Richard 
Baldwin, by his wife Anne Monteth were as follows: 

90. Ann, evidently eldest child, as named in her father's will, and in that of 
Mrs. Elizabeth Monteth (whom he mentioned), which was dated 22 Feb., 1694. She 
died unmarrie.'l, and letters of administration were granted, in the Prerogative Court 
of Canterbury, 20 Aug., 1734, to her brother and next of kin. Robert Monteth 
Baldwin, Esquire. 

91. Richard, who was living 22 Feb'y, 1694, and also at the date of his father's 
will ; but who probably died young, at all events without issue, as his younger 
brother possessed the family estate. 

93. Elizabeth, living at the date of her father's will, 8 Dec, 1696, but of whom 
I find nothing further. The youngest child was 

93. Robert Monteth Baldwin, Avho was evidently born after the date of his 
father's will. Mrs. Elizabeth Monteth, above named, was the widow of his mother's 
paternal uncle; and in her will, dated 22 Feb'y, 1694, left legacies of £500 each to 
the three children of Richard Baldwin and Anne Monteth. with the provision that 
if any of them died in their minority, or before maniage, their portions should go 
to any son of said James (see Richard) smd Anne Baldwin, who sh.oukl be baptised 
by the name of her dear deceased husband, Robert l\p)idit]i. He appeared to have 
outlived his brother and sisters, and to have died unmarried. 

The will of Robert Monteth Baldwiil, which is very short, was 
made 8 Sept., 1746, when he described himself as of the Middle 
Temple, London, Esqnire. He simply bequeathed all his estate, 
both real and personal, to his " cousin," John Canham, Esquire, and 
appointed him sole executor. Canham proved the will, in the Pre- 
rogative Court of Canterbury, 6 April, 1747. He may have been 
an actual cousin, son of one of his Aunts, Maria or Sarah; or the 
word "cousin" may have been used in the light oi' nephew, and he 
have been the son of the sister Elizabeth; or again, he may have 
been a relation on his mother's side. At all events, the estates of 
the direct line of Dundridge Baldwins appear to have descended 
to this Robert Monteth Baldwin, and he bequeathed them to his 
cousin John Canham, dying the last of his race. The very next 
year, 1748, according to Lipscombe (who wrongly calls him John 
Monteth Baldwin), this heir sold Bundridge and the other familj'- 
lands, and the name of Baldwin ceased to be connected with them, 
after an ownership of 170 years, and a previous tenantry of Dun- 
dridge making up two centuries. It was left for the younger 
branches of the Dundridge line to perpetuate their race in 
America, while the elder branch, which remained in Enghmd, 
faded out entirely in about a hundred years after the emigration. 



John Baldwin, of County Bucks., England, 



AND HIS DESCENDANTS. 



1. JOHN BALDWm,ofthe"Hayle," County Bucks, England, 
was named as the overseer of his bi^other liichard's will, in 155|. 
He made his own will 12 March, 156i, describing himself as of 
the Hayle, in the Parish of Wendover, County Bucks, yeoman. 
The following is an abstract of it: 

To each of my children's children, 4 pence. To Mcholas, my son, 
my houses and lands in Great Missenden and the Lee, and a tene- 
ment in Wendover. To Sylvester, my son, a grove called Lord's 
Grove, in Wendover, and lands in Aston Clinton called Pleadell's; 
and the same, after his death, to go to his son John and his heirs 
forever. To Richard, my son, £20. To Robert, my son, £10. To 
Thomas, my son, a horse worth 33s. 4d. To George, my son, all 
the residue of my estate, and he to be my executor; as overseer, 
my son Sylvester. The will was proved 2 March, 156f, in the 
Archdeaconry Court of Bucks, by the son George. His wife evi- 
dently died before he did. 

2. George.-f- 

3. Nicholas. -f 

4. Sylvester. -|- 

5. Richard. -j- 

6. Robert. Mr. Chester finds nothing of him after his fatlier's will of lo6i, and 
thinks he died young. 

7. Thomas, 

8r Hugh appears, in the will of the first Richard of Duudridge, as "Heughe 
Baldwyn, my brother's son." He is not named in John's will, and if he was his 
son, probablj' died young. As Richard named no other brother than John, it is 
likely Hugh was son of John. Richard may have had other brothers; but 3Ir. 
Chester can find no trace or suggestion of them in tlie wills, verv numerous, of 
Baldwins in Bucks or other parts of England. In the parish register of Aston 
Clinton appears the marriage of a Hugh Baldwin and Mary King, 24 Jan'y, 150 jj, and 
of this Hugh, Mr. Chester fimls no fiirtlicr trace. 



56 Baldicin Genealogy. 

There were other Baldwins, in Aston CliiUon and vicinity, mentioned as "ser- 
vants" and '"laborers," and not related to the Baldwins of Dundridg« and of the 
Hayle; and Mr. Chester thinks the married Hugh was one of these. As neither 
John the brother, nor any child of his, unless it be Hugh, is a legatee in the will of 
Eichard, it seems to me very probable that if Hugh was any son of John, he was 
the oldest and died young, and quite as probable that he was son of some other 
brother of Richard. John himself would not have beeii named in Richard's will, 
had he not happened to be selected as "overseer," and Richard may and very likely 
had other brothers and sisters. 

I have left Hugh in place as son of John, but with great doubt whether he 
belongs there, as, with this expression of my doubt, no one will be misled. 

2. GEORGE - John 1- evidently in 156f the eldest son, and so 
called in certain Chancery proceedings in 1590. He was called 
cousin (i.e. nephew) in 156f, in will of Ellen of Dundridge, and 
her two daughters were to be guided by him in their marriages. 
His will, as of the Hayle in Wendover, County Bucks, dated 10 
Feb'y, and proved 20 Mch., 157f, by his widow Avelyn, probably a 
sister of William Aystell, whom he called his brother, and named 
as overseer with his own brother Sylvester and his son Ralph. 
He names as his children: 

9. Ralph.+ 

10. James. 

11. Edmond.-f 

12. John. 

13. Hem-y. 

14. Michael. 

The other children than Ralph were apparently under age, and 
Mr. Chester does not iind what became of the others than Ralph 
and Edmond. 

3. NICHOLAS 2 John i- He had by his father's will, dated 
156i, lands at Great Missenden and the Lee, a tenement at Wen- 
dover, &c. It appears, by Chancery proceedings in 1591, that he 
married Agnes Fisher, widow of William, and by another suit, 
that he had by Fisher at least a son Thomas. He lived at Eddies- 
borough, County Bucks, where he made his will, 2 July. 1577, 
calling himself a yeoman, and directing to be buried in Eddies- 
borough churchyard. The original will, proved 24 April, 1581, 
by his brother Sylvester, is on file in the Archdeaconry Court of 
Bucks; but that part is torn away in which he enumerated his 



John, of County Bucks, England. oT 

cliildren, except Triainor and John. His other children are iden- 
tilied in other ways: 

lo. Johu.-|- 

16. Frauds. -|- 

17. Bartholemew.-|- 

18. Thomas. + 

19. Triamor. In the Cliancery proceeding in Jamiarj-, loDy, he is called the 
youngest son. He was executor of the m ills of his brothers Francis and Barthole. 
mew in 1639 and 1655, and then disappears altogether. The will of a Triamor 
Baldwin, of Loudon, was dated aud proved as late as 1729. He could not have 
been the Triamor above, born before 1581, but, evidently from the peculiar name, 
some connection. Hfi stjdes himself "gentleman," and left but one legitimate 
child, to whom he bequeathed considerable property in London. He provided 
handsomely for an illegitimate sou and daughter, called by his surname. He also 
left £100 to his brother William Baldwin, then living in or near New York; and 
£100 each to his nephews Triamor and William, sons of said William, his brother, 
and placed the nephew Triamor last in the jine of rem under to certain property 
(one-fourth of the old ]Marshalsea Prison, immortalized by Dickens), which he 

devised first to his illegitimate son Thomas Baldwin. 

Who William, in or near l^ew York, was, I do not know. He 
could not have been AYilliani of Bucks County, Penn., who was 
from Yorkshire. He may have been William of Stratford, Conn.; 
m. Ruth Brooks, 1688, but no son Triamor appears; aud possibly 
not William, though a William appeared afterward in Stratford, 
for whom I do not accoount otherwise. 

20. Winifred, who m. Everard Johnson. Both are named in the .ill cited, 
and living 1655, and she in 1661. 

4. SYLVESTER 2 Johni- He=^^ received from his father, by 
will dated 156i, certain lands in Aston Clinton, called Pleadell's. 
He was executor of his brother ISTicholas in 1581, and is frequently 
mentioned in the Chancery proceedings referred to. His lirst wife 
Agnes, the mother of his children, was buried at Aston Clinton, 31 
Dec, 1568. He m. 2d, Agnes Bacheler, widow (probably of Sylves- 
ter Bacheler, who was buried there 3 July, 1564). He was buried 
there himself 3 July, 1592. His will, as of St. Leonard's Parish, 
Aston Clinton, County Bucks, yeoman, dated 25 June, 1592, was 
proved 5 Oct., 1592, by his son Thomas, in the Archdeaconry 



* He is tlie Sylvester erroneously said, in my article in^the N. E. Hist. Gen'I Register, to be father of 
Henry of Dundridge, and m. Sarah Gelly. My information, deri^•ed from another (not Mr. Chester), as to 
the supposed conveyance from John to Sylvester, on his marriage with Sarah Gelly, I believe to be a myth; 
and the payment of taxes in 1579, was not by Sylvester and Henry, but hy Richard and Henry.

9. RALPHS George 2 John 1= 27 Sept., 1611, he proved the 
nuncupative will of his daughter Rebecca, who died unm. May 
previous. She was described as of Wendover, and bequeathed to 
her father £100, he had promised her, w^hich was to be paid to her 
by her brother Henry Baldwin, and prayed him to be kind to her 
poor brother (probably another in distress).

of 158i, described as of Wendover, tanner. He appeared to have 
conveyed his property in Wendover, about a year and a half 
before, and is thought to be the Edmond Baldwin, of Chalfont, 
St. Peter's, County Bucks (fourteen miles from Wendover village), 
yeoman, whose will, dated 6 Jan'y, 162f, was proved 2 October, 
1621, by his w^idow Cicely. He named, as living sons, Thomas

his son Ralph as dead.

yeoman, made his will, dated 9 Jan'y, 16|~^, proved in the Arch- 
deaconry Court of Bucks, 5 April following, by his son Ralph, to 
whom he left all his possessions, except 5 sliillings to his daughter 
Elizabeth Beaker. John's identity would be uncertain, save for 
law suits: 1586, describing himself of Edlesborowe, in a suit in 
Chancery, he says that John Baldwin, of the Hale, in the Parish 



60 Baldtrin Genealor/y. 

of Great Missenclen, yeoman, his grandfather was seized of land at 
Field End, in that Parish, and let the same to John Baldwin, of 
Chilton, at a rent of 26s. 8d; that John, of the Hale, demised the 
same to his son Nicholas, from whom the same descended to 
plaintiff as his son and heir; that the title deeds came into pos- 
session of Thomas Baldwin, of Field End, and by virtue of the 
same, Thomas entered into possession. Thomas, in the answer, 
savs John of Chilton was his father, and seized in fee of 
the property, and borrowed money of John of the Hayle, and 
conveyed the lands to him for forty years to pay a rent of 
26s. 8d; that by mistake, John of the Hale demised the same 
to John of Chilton, reserving the rent; that John of Chilton 
by his will made Alice, his wife, his executrix, who granted 
same to Thomas. Alice died 21 Elizabeth (1.579). In 1591, he 
brought a suit against his stepmother and cousin Ralph, alleging 
that Nicholas had granted lands in "VVendover derived from John 
of the Hale, for the advancement of his son in marriage with 
Agnes Fisher, to his elder brother George for term of years. 
Nicholas dying, his wife Agnes entered into possession, and was 
expelled by Ralph, claiming by inheritance from George, who 
had only a term of years; whereupon, Ralph and Agnes conspired 
to conceal from him the title deeds. 

One of the wisest things done bv the emigrants to NewEuHand, 
was' to institute the system of records for deeds, which saves 
much litigation and uncertainty in titles, and the universal good 
judgment they exhibited in that regard is remarkable. 

36. Ralph. 

37. Elizabeth, m. Beaker. 

16. FRANCIS 3 Nicholas'^ John. 1 He made his will 25 May, 
1639, describing himself as of Parish St. Mary le Strand, County 
Middlesex, "gentleman." From his living in London, and in the 
particular parish named, it is probable he was connected with one 
of the law courts or public offices in this vicinity, and therefore 
described himself as a "gentleman." 

He gives £200 each to his son John, "and the child in my wife's 
womb," when 21; their guardians to be his brothers Bartholomew 
and Triamor. If both children died before 21, £50 each to god-son 
Thomas Baldwin, god-daughter Sarah Baldwin, and the other

The will was proved in the Prerogative Court of Canterbury, 12 
June, 1639. His widow's will, dated 23 Jan'y, ]64i, was proved 
the next 4 Julv, bv her mother Elizabeth Hills. She directed to 
be buried near her husband, in the Parish Church of St. Marv le 
Strand, and left her property to her son John and daughter Eliza- 
beth. Mr. Chester can lind no further trace of the children. 

38. John. 

39. Elizabeth, born soon after 23 May, 1639. 

17. BARTHOLOMEW^Xicholas^ John.i In his will, dated 
10 May, 1655, he called himself of Weston Turville, County 
Bucks, "gentleman." The following is an abstract of his will: 

Whereas, by a former will, I made Robert, my son, full execu- 
tor, and ordained my lands at Wiugfleld, in Chalgrave, County 
Bedford, to be sold to pay debts, and fuliill the engagement for 
mj cousin Elizabeth Baldwin's portion (probably niece Elizabeth 
last named) ; but my said son Robert afterwards persuaded me 
to convey said lands to him for his preferment, &c., I now 
revoke said will, and appoint as my executors my brother Tria- 
mor Baldwin, and my son-in-law Robert Abdy, with power to 
sell my lands in Edlesborough and Weston Turville, County 
Bucks, for the payment of my debts and legacies. Of the 
residue of my estate, I give one-third to John, my son; one- 
third to my wife Mary for life, with remainder to John and 
Thomas, my sons, equally; to my son and daughter Abdy, £5; to 
my sister Johnson, 50 shillings. I will that Bartholomew, my 
son, enjoy Eastbury House, in Edlesborough. I appoint over- 
seers, my cousin Mr. Aske, and Mr. Hoi ton. Residue of person- 
ality to my executors and to my sons Robert, Bartholomew, John 
and Thomas equally. In a codicil, dated six days later (16 May, 
1655,) he gives "to my brother-in-law Everard Johnson, £5; to 
my sister Hannah Johnson and her son, my cousin (i.e. nephew), 
Thomas Baldwin, each 40 shillings. 

The will was proved 20 July, 1655, in the Prerogative Court of 
Canterbury, by his brother Triamor, power being reserved to 



62 Baldwin Genealogy. 

Robert Abdy, the other executor. His widow Mary, then of 
Parish of St. Paul's, Covent Garden, made a nuncupative will, 7 
Oct., 1666. Her legacies were : To Bartholomew Baldwin, Jr., £10 ; 
to Mary Bowles, £10; to my sister Baldwin's children, 50 shillings; 
to my sister Joanna, 20 shillings; to Elizabeth Bowles, 10 shil- 
lings ; to Sarah Leavern, 20 shillings ; to Bartholomew Baldwin, my 
son, the remainder of my annuity due me from my daughter-in- 
law Wells. Her son Bartholomew became administrator 25 April, 
1668. Bartholomew Baldwin was, in 1634, Clerk of the Faculties 
in the Court of Chancery (5 State Paper 388), and 26 July of that 
year, as of Weston Turville, was summoned to appear at the 
Office of Arms next term, to make proof of his Arras, and to 
enter his descent (same Volume, p. 160.) He did not do this, and 
was omitted in the visitation of 1634.

in 1592. He m. first Rebecca , the mother of most of his 

children, who was buried at Aston Clinton, 15 April, 1500, evi-

He married second at Aston Clinton, 6 July, 1590, Jane Hayle, 
less than three months after the death of his first wife. Such 
hasty second marriages were common enough, and in his case was 
quite necessar}^ he being left with six very young children, tmd 
no sister or female relative to whom he could turn for assistance. 
His second wife survived, and appears to have been buried at 
Aston Clinton, 2 Aug., 1628. He was buried there 9 Jan'y, 
16^. His will, as of St. Leonard's, in Aston Clinton, yeoman, 
was dated 25 Fe"b'y, 16f|. The abstract of his will follows: 

To be buried in Aston Clinton churchyard. To the poor there,

Aston Clinton and Wendover for her life or widowhood, and one-

DUNDRIDGE AND ITS VICINITY. 



In 1870, I visited that portion of Buckinghamshire, England, 
formerly inhabited by my ancestors. The locality was so inter- 
esting to me, that some description of it ma}^ prove so to others. 

Aston Clinton was a quiet little parish, about four miles from 
Aylesbury, a county town. St. J-.eonard"s was a small church, or 
chapel, built in the old English style. 



■^^^ 




vJ^^>k^^ 



3(ow.try.1\iKt'^l>e1 



Chapel of St- Leonard's, Buckinghamshire. 

Its walls were the same that my ancestors bad viewed before 
thev came to Xew Eno-land. The roof had been burned in the 
revolution of 1G40, and was replaced. Inside was a mural monu- 
ment to Samuel Baldwin, with the arms — three oak leaves slipped, 
and the inscription : " Within this chapel are deposited the remains 
'' of Mr. Samuel Baldwin, of the Parish of St. Paul, Covent Gar- 
" den, and of this hamlet, who died the 23 of March, 1760, in the 
" fJlst year of his age; and of Tryphene, his Avidow. who died the 



68 Baldwin Gei^ccdogy. 

" 23rd of April, 1780, in the 90th year of her age. They left two 
" children, Joseph and Susanna, hy the eldest of whom this is 
" erected to the memory of his parents." 

The chapel farm, formerly in the tenure of Sylvester Baldwin, 
lay directly across the street — a fine rolling, grass farm. There 
were no Baldwins in the vicinitv, but the Baldwin woods were at 
the other end of the farm. St. Leonard's is described, in 1842, by 
Lewis, as "a chapelry of Aston Clinton, one hundred and forty- 
seven inhabitants; living, a donative, £30. Patrons and impro- 
prietors. Sir J. D. King, Bart. The Chapel is endow^ed with 
lands producing £170 per annum." Before the dissolution of the 
Abbeys, it seems to have been supplied by Missenclen Abbey, a 
few miles ofl:'. "It is supposed," says Lipscomb (Hist, Bucks), to 
have been originally built on the site of an ancient hermitage, or 
cell, belonging to Missenden Abbey, and founded circa 1278." 
The chapel, after the dissolution of the Abbey, was disregarded 
until Queen Elizabeth granted its site, in 1586, to Edward 
Wymarke. "It being then in the tenure of Sylvester Baldwin, 
who also had other lands in the same parish, which the Queen 
had granted to Sir Edward Stanley, kn't. and his heirs, probably 
formerly belonging to a Chantry ;" but, in 1587, she further granted 
to Wil. Zipper and Robert Dawe, Esqrs. inter al. "the decayed 
" free chapel of St. Leonard's, a tenement called Chapel Farm, 
" and all lands thereunto belonging, in Astan Clinton and Wen- 
" dover, in the occupation of Sylvester Baldwin, tenendum, as of 
"the manor East Greenwich, by fealty;" only with the proviso 
that if, before the 22nd of ]^ov., 1 Eliz., any of the premises were 
not unjustly detained, then the grant to be void. 

It will have been noticed, that in the will of Richard of Dun- 
dridge, 1636, is bequeathed one coffer, containing evidences con- 
cerning chapel lauds. 

Dundridge: Dunriche, Bunrigge, Bunrig, says Lewis, a small 
hamlet. But more correctly, a single farm in St. Leonard's is a 
reputed manor, having no copy-hold belonging to it. It was 
probably separately called a manor, when the sergeantry of Paris 
was vested in the Montagues, in the reign of Edw. 3, or Rich- 
ard 2.

The descent of Dundridge is furnished me by that accomplished

The manor of Dundridge came to the crown on her attainder. 
In 1544, it was granted by Henry VIII. as the manor of Dunriche, 
alias During, parcel of the possession of said Margaret, with Stone- 
hill Grrove of live acres; Lady Grove, seven acres; Vie Grove, one 
acre: and woods of coppices, called Braies, fourteen acres; St. 
Mary coppices, four acres ; and other lands belonging to the same 
manor in Aston Clinton, Chcsham and Wendover, to Sir John 
Baldwin, his heirs and assigns. Several of the lands enumerated 
above will be recognized as occurring in the wills of the Baldwins

of Dundriclge. The manor seems to have gone from Sir John to 
his daughter, Dorothy Pakington. She, as a widow, mortgaged 
it, in 1574, to Sir John Spencer. First March, 1577-8, John Pak- 
ington, son and heir of Dorothy, had license to alienate Dunrich 
and other lands to Henry and Richard Baldwin, two of the sons of 
the first Richard; and it remained in the family, as we have seen, 
until 1748. In 1870, when I visited it, it belonged to Rev. H. A. 
Jeffries, of Hawkhurst, near Staplehurst, Kent. It is in the parish 
of Aston Clinton, and almost or quite in sight of the chapel of 
St. Leonard's. 

The dwelling is of brick, large for farm purposes, and bordering 
a long, narrow common, extending from the higliAvay. Fifty 
years since, there was an ancient building there, of which I learned 
only that it was of good size and somewhat Elizabethan in style. 
Toward the common was a deep ditch freshly kept open, and 
called the moat." There were traces of its former continuation, 
extending in front and on the side next the highway. In the rear, 
the ditch — had there been one — would have been filled by the 
litter of the barnyard; and on the remaining side, I could detect 
no trace of it. The view here given of it is taken from the side 
last mentioned^ which is not the best point of vieAv: 

Dun BRIDGE lies much 
nearer Cholesbury than to 
the church at Aston Clin- 
ton, and the Baldwins of 
Dundridge appear to have 
been known there. The 
church at Cholesbury ap- 
pears old, and the Rev. Mr. 
Jester there took time from 
a pressing engagement, to 
show me close by the church 
the remains of an old en- 
campment, called I believe 
by Mr. Jester a Danish, but in Murraj^'s Hand Book a British 
camp. It is in good preservation, looking much like the best of 
our ancient works of the kind in America. Lewis calls it one of 
the finest Danish encampments in this kingdom, one mile in 
circumference, with ditch in some places thirty feet deep. About 
four miles from Aylesbury, and three from St. Leonard's, lies

"Wendover, which recovered two members of Parliament through 
John Hampden, and was several times represented by him. A 
little beyond from St. Leonard's lies Great Hampden, the paternal 
home of Hampden, with its grand old avenue of beeches; so long, 
that one imagines the four thousand yeomen, who are said to have 
ridden to London in sympathy for the patriot, congregated about 
it. Hampden was buriedjiere, in 1643. In his will he remembers 
John Baldwin. 

A John Baldwin, of Wendover, seems to have been a man 
of some prominence. Lipscomb notices "a view of Franc Pledge, 
and Court Baron of John Baldwin, Esq., of Wendover, Baronie, 
there holden 11 May, 1652; Thomas Smith, Steward." Li 1660, 
he represented Wendover in Parliament; and as late as 7 -April, 
1671, there was another view of Frank Pledge before him. 

Lord INugent, in his Memorials of Hampden, says that Hampden 
had an intention to emigrate to New England: that "this project 
of emigration was defeated by an order of the King, in Council, 
dated 6 April, 1638, by which all masters and owners of ships 
were restrained from setting forth any vessels with passengers for 
America, without special license. The immediate effect of this 
monstrous edict is rendered remarkable by an event which has 
thrown over the whole an air of strange fatality. Eight shijDs, 
with respectable emigrants on board, were at this time lying in 
the Thames, bound for the new colony. In one of these had 
actually embarked, for their voyage across the Atlantic, two no 
less considerable persons than John Hampden and his kinsman, 
Oliver Cromwell." A special order was therefore issued detaining 
the vessels by name. Lord Nugent gives several references. His 
editor afiixes a note, that FovSter, in his "Statesmen of the Com- 
monwealth," has shown that there is not sufficient authority for 
the incident; but that Lord Nugent having offered no mark or 
modihcatiou, he allows it to stand. Hume (Yol. 5, p. 85) considers 
the fact beyond controversy. Southey, in his "Life of Cromwell," 
makes the emigrants bound for Saybrook, in Connecticut. It 
seems that, in the spring or early summer of 1638, numbers from 
the immediate vicinity of Hampden did emigrate, among whom 
Silvester, in ship Martin, died June 21. 

Among those in Xew Haven, Conn., in 1638, and Milford, in 
1639, from the vicinity, were the many Baldwins, the Bryants, 
Fenns, Stonehill, probably the Fowlers, and we cannot tell how 



72 



Baldmn Genealogy. 



many otliers. The woods of Hampden end to the north upon the 
brow of a lofty hill, called Green Holly. In the side of this chalk 
hill is cut the "White Leaf Cross." It is about one hundred feet 
long by seventy wide, and made by cutting off the turf, leaving 
the bare chalk plainly visible for many miles. This monument is 
of very remote antiquity, supposed by Mr. Wise, in a learned 
letter to Browne Willis on the subject of Saxon Antiquities, to 
commemorate a victory of Edward, King of West Saxons over 
the Danes, early in the tenth century. "It appears, however," 
says Lord Nugent, "to have been intended as a memorial of the 
last battle of the Britons with Hengist and Ilorsa, which was 
fought over the extensive plains of Eisborough and Saunderton. 
The Saxon princes planted their victorious standards on this 
height, and on Bedlow Ridge adjoining, to recall their troops from 
the pursuit. 

This memorial probably seemed nearly as old to our aucesto 
in 1636, as it does to us to-day; and they gazed on it, as did 
and in all probability some of my ancestors assisted in making 
time out of mind ago. At Great Misseuden, Avhich is near Di 
dridge, are still the remains of the Abbe}', on a rising slope fi;

the road. It retains in its cloisters some scanty remains of the 
walls of a religious house, founded for Black Canons in 1133. 
I cannot give the date of Missenden Church. The authorities 
speak of it as very ancient. It is said the tower at the west end 



Dundridge and its Vicinity. 73 

was origiijally early Euglisli, and that almost every sncceecling- 
style of architecture appears ia the building. The oldest brass 
mentioned in Lipscomb is dated in 153G. 

It will be remembered that to the poor of Great Missendeu 
were £:ifts made in the Dundridi!:e wills. 

In all these old remains of antiquity, I fancied some memorials 
of the life of my ancestors. Indeed, in 1639, Alice Baldwin, as 
the last Abbess of Burnham Abbey, surrendered her house and 
received a pension of £13, 6s and 8d. My whole visit to Bucks 
county charmed me. Although no doubt very different from wliat 
it was in 1636, it is very diiferent from our own country. The 
quiet, picturesque places; the green grass everywhere, leaving no 
bare earth. The "navigable feeder," or canal, was a narrow, deep, 
clear stream, lined with trees and with grass to the water. The 
farms and estates were pleasant. These parishes lie upon the edge 
of Chilton Hills, and, in that, have pleasanter scenerj^ than many. 
They are fertile, being celebrated long ago as that pleasant vale 
'• of Aylesbury that walloweth in wealth." These lands, however, 
are not owned by the tenants in small pieces, as they used to be. 
Dundridge belonged to a non-resident, who had never seen it. 
I^ear by was an estate bought for investment by the Mercers 
Company. I think it was of London. Two of the Rothchilds 
had large estates near by, one of them owning the whole parish 
of Halton. The localit}^ was pleasant and healthy. While I was 
in Aj^lesbury, the Sabbath school children were out on a picnic. 
Hearing the noise of a return, I waited to see how the children 
looked, whom I felt sure mustbe stout little boys, from the shouting 
and joj^ous noises they made. I fancied my ancestors might have 
been, in childhood, something like these, save. Sunday-school 
picnics. But the return was of the little girls, stout, round and 
rosy, prospectively stout women, well fitted for severe life in a 
new land. 

I ought perhaps to say a word or two about the Baldwin Arms. 
It has been seen, hy the reader of the English genealogies, that 
the lines represented in America are not presumed to be entitled 
to them. Arms are in England hci-editary, and as much property 
as real estate for instance. The general ideas of Americans about 
Arms are very loose, and lead to such an engraving of seals and 
other matters as startles a conscientious scholar. The Arms of 
Sir John Baldwin appear, in Dugdale's " Origines Juridicales," as 

6

three oak leaves slipped (in pairs). In Lipscomb, they are given 
as three oak leaves slipped, acorned proper (natnral color). These 
Arms appear, unacorned ia the Middle Temple, as Arms of Richard 
Baldwin; and upon the tomb of Samuel Baldwin, in St. Leonard's. 
The Arms granted in 1662, to Edward Baldwin, of AVilton, are 
described as " argent a chevron ermine, between three oak branches 
proper." The same Arms are used bv the Baldwins of County 
Cork, Ireland, who emigrated there temp. Elizabeth, and who 
probably came from County Bucks. It will be noticed, however, 
tliat if they emigrated as «arly as that, they could not have been 
descendants of Edward; and that, although the Baldwins of 
America, as far as known, are not entitled to any of these Arms, 
the ownership of them by other branches of grant, raises no 
presumption that there was no collateral consanguinity. 

The following is a cut of the Arms : three oak leaves slipped, 
unacorned, which appears in the St. Leonard Chapel. With it is 
the usual crest of the Baldwins of that vicinity, " a squirrel sejant," 
or a squirrel sitting, colored in gold. It is generally or always 
represented as holding a "sprig of hazel," or oak, sometimes 
acorned or unacorned.

There are in some of the Massachusetts lines of Baldwins, old

JetUitliiiu and Luke of tlie Henry of Woburii branch. The crest 
there is a grifhii, for which there seems to be no authority at all. 

These Arms may have been furnished by some irresponsible 
vender of arms in Boston, shortly after the Revolution, or obtained 
from books of heraldry. I have a drawing of the last Arms from 
George Baldwin, Esq., son of Loammi (Woburn branch), with a 
squirrel as the crest, holding an acorned oak branch. He is able 
to tell whence it came. His father obtained it in Xew York 
during the Revolution, and intended to have it engraved, but was 
driven from New York too soon. 

The Baldwins of Herts and Bucks, who Avere granted Arms in 
early times, had them quite similar to those of Sir John; and I 
confess I believe they had probably this reason for it, that they 
were collaterally related to him.

Plan of Early Milford, Connecticut. 



Richard Baldwin, of Milford, Conn 



AND HIS DESCENDANTS. 



1. RICHARD BALDWIN, of Milford, was son of 
Baldwin (who died 21 June, 1638, on the passage over from 
on ship Martin) ; and his wife, Sarah (Bryan) Baldwin. An 
He was baptised in the Parish Aston Clinton, Buckinghai 
England, 25 August, 1622, and probably born not long I 
He perhaps came with his father, or possibly earlier. He ^ 
not have been Richard, of Braintree, Mass., i^l 1637, as supp 
by Savage; as Richard, of Braintree, must have been much oK 
(See Henry, of Woburn.) He evidently had a good education . 
the times. His handwriting was as tine as I have seen in any ear. 
record. 



ro-r^'y 



He frequently- appeared as attorney before the General Court 
at New Haven; and his arguments are so redolent of the shrewd, 
technical manner of the time, that it would seem as if he must 
have had some schooling in that manner. I think it not unlikely 
he was in some attorney's office, perhaps in London — a position 
the Baldwins of Bucks and Herts inclined to; influenced thereto 
perhaps by the eminent success of their probable kinsman. Sir 
John Baldwin, Chief Justice. He was probably in the office of 
his uncle Henry, a lawyer. This name appears upon the first 
page of Milford Records, 20 jSTov., 1639, among "those persons 
whose names are hereunder written are allowed to be Free 
Planters, having for the present liberty to act in the choyce of 
public officers for the carrying on of public affayers in this planta- 
tion." He was then in church fellowship, according to Lambert, 
yet he joined the church, 9 May, 1641. Among the names of the 
planters at Xew Llaven, in 1643 (X. II, Col. Rec, 91,) appears 
AVid. Baldwin, five in family, estate 800, &c. But at least ten 



78 Baldwin Genealogy. 

other names appear in the two lists, and in the Xew Haven list 
near together. Among them were fonr of the five judges first 
chosen in Millbrd. "• The power was settled in the church to 
choose persons out of themselves to divide the lands into lots as 
they shall have light from the word of God, and to take order for 
the timber." He m., after "5 Feb'y, 164f, Elizabeth Alsop, sister 
of Joseph,"' of New Haven, as at that date she joined the church 
in Milford m her maiden name. 

The location of his homestead appears in 1646, he being No. 2, 
three acres on the west side of the Wepawaug river, just north of 
the present residence of Selah Strong, Esq. On one side (No. 1, 
extreme north, on the west side of the river,) was his step-father, 
Capt. John Astwood; and on the other, Benjamin Fenn, also 
an eminent citizen, and who m. his sister. The same year, 31 
Dec-, young as he was, he was first of a committee of five appointed 
to equalize the lots then divided, "in the Oyster meadow, the 
Round meadow, the Calf-Pen meadow, the two Fresh meadows, 
Dreadfui Swamp meadow, the Beaver Pond meadow, and other 
parcels not 3'et disposed of." At the close of the next month (28 
Jan'y), it was ordered, "that the town do grant half of Beaver 
Pond meadow, which is unprised, unto Richard Baldwin and 
Thomas Tibbals, provided they drain it within six months next 
coming;" 20 May, 1647, he was granted his quarter division, "in 
the place where he desireth;'" 22 June, 1648, "his other quarter 
division," next to his former; 8 Jan'y, 1648, Baldwin and Tibbals 
had drained the swamp, and wanted the land (Beaver Pond), they 
held with the town, divided : the town gave them the upper end. 
In 1662, he had, with four others, grant of a marsh. His name 
frequently appears in many ways, and he was evidently an active, 
energetic, intelligent man of business. He was quite prominent 
in the settlement of Paugusset (Derb}^, Conn.) At Milford meet- 
ing, June 10, 1655, as Sarj't Baldwin, he was chosen, with Mr. 
Fenn, Ensign Bryan and fearj't East, to "treat and agree with the 
Indians, being tlie true proprietors for all or any part of the land 
purchased betwixt Pagasich k us that falls within our line; and 
what agreement they make, the town is to stand to it, according 
to the promises expressed." This was perhaps in response to 
an application, of which the Governor of New Haven Colony 
informed the General Court, 30 Mav, 1655, who said that Richard 



RichanU of MUford, Connecticut. 79 

Baldwin, if not some others of Milford, had bine av*'' liim, and 
desired liberty from y'' court to buy some land of y'' Indians 
about Pauguset; but the magistrate & deputies for Milford desired 
they might not have leave till they may more fully understand 
the minds of their toune, to whom they think it will be offensive 
if granted." The next October, Richard made a report to the court 
(1 New Haven Col. Rec, 156), to which the court made answer, 
*' receiving the place under the jurisdiction granting leave to be a 
small village,"" without being under New Haven or Milford. The 
court also "condescended" that the petitioners might buy land of 
the Indians. 3. They are willing that one among themselves, 
such as the court shall approve of, shall be intrusted with power 
and authoritie to call meetings, execute warrants, moderate in 
causes of difference, and take y® best course "he can to carry on 
things in an orderly and peaceable way." 4. Paugasset was to 
be free from rate for three years. "Richard Baldwin was now 
appointed to be y® man to carry on ye trust before mentioned; 
liee also now declared that they did intend to purchase large tracts 
of land of the Indians," &c. 28 May, 1656, the Paugasset business 
"was now againe in question," the magistrates and deputies for 
Milford objecting to it; and after many debates, it was suggested 
that the owners resign their claims to Milford, on being paid for 
the same. Richard Baldwin, for himself and the rest, wanted 
more accommodation at Milford, "so that the}' may subsist in a 
comfortable way to maintain stockes suitable to their families, 
and Milferd to pay what they had laid out. Millferd men replyed 
they had not where with all to doe it, &c. "In the time, the court 
advised both p'ties to peace," and Paugasset to cease until to see 
if the matter could be arranged. 27th, 3d month, 1657, the 
business was "againe revived," Richard Baldwin giving conditions 
in writing which the court thought reasonable, and "desire Mil- 
ferd and they may joyne in a loveing way; but if Milferd refuse, 
it is like Newhaven will accept them. 1st, They had liberty to 
buy Indians' land over jSTaugatuck River, and above them north- 
ward up into the cuntrye;" 2nd, Avere to bear their proportion 
of public service; 3rd, to be free from rates particularly concerning 
Milford paying "jurisdiction rates;" and to the ministrie at Mil- 
ferd, so long as they enjoye the same," and "there share towards 
the killino; of woulves and foxes," In 1659, the court seem to 



80 Baldirin Gemalor/i/. 

have been quite uncertain as to the prospect of Paugasset, pro- 
viding that if it "became not a village to the purposes formerly 
exprest by y*^ court, betwixt this and y® general court in May 
next, that the place shall be deserted in reference to settled habita- 
tion." 30 May, 1660 : " Sarjeant Baldwin informed that an Indian, 

called , the proprietor of the meadow called hogg's meadow, 

had bestowed the said meadow upon him; and the said Richard 
Baldwin desired that it might be an appendix to Paugasset, where 
some further preparations had been made this winter, by fencing, 
for the carrying it o to ^ village." Milford objected it would 
straiten them, "to w^* Sarjeant Baldwin answered, that he con- 
ceived it must fall one of these three ways, the meadow being his: 
1, that either it be an appendix to Paugasset; or 2nd, he being a 
planter at Milferd, he may enjoy it; or thirdl}', if Milferd have it, 
he may have a valuable consideration for it." The court expressed 
dissatisfaction that Paugasset was not in a "settled way." " Sar- 
jeant Baldwin pleaded that he was hindered by obstruction he 
had met with by ye ordinary at Milferd, and by sickuesse the last 
summer." 

This deed is recorded (Col. Record of Lands, Vol. 1, p. 292), 
as follows: "At a meeting with Towtanimoe, Sagamore of Paw- 
gusset, together Avith some other Pagusset Indians, his subjects, at 
the house of Richard Baldwin, at Milford, March 2d, 1659-60, 
the sayd Sagamore did grant the meadow, known and denominated 
by the name of Hogg Meadow * * unto Richard Baldwin, * * * 
and doth farther promise and engage, that when the proprietors of 
Pawgussett shall there come to possesse and improve these property 
there, he will then sell and make over to them what other upland 
or meadow shall be for their convenience; and likewise doth 
ingage, in the meantime, not to make over, sell or dispose of any 
land * * '^- between the west branch of the Milferd Mill River and 
Patatuch River, east & west; and from the little river on the north 
side of Grassy Hill, and so northward unto the hither end of the 
place commonly called deare's delight, unto any other * * persons 
whatever," &c. Signed by Tawtanimoe, James, Chub, Succuseoge, 
Secochduneege, Sassanghsough and Wanwumpecun Indians. then 
present. 

By a deed dated 6 Sep., 1661, Tawtanimoe gave to Richard 
Baldwin "all the upland adjacent to Hogg's Meadow," "to begin 



Rivharil, of JlilJ'urd, Comiccdriit. 81 

at Milferd line on the south side; and the north side goeth up to 
the path which goeth from Pagassett to New Haven ; and the west 
side from Milferd line w^here the cartway now is that o^oeth over 
the Brooke which is on the north side of Grassy Hill; and so 
broad as it is there to Milford Mill River, the same bredth it is to 
runn from the sayd Mill Eiver at Pagassett path on the north side 
towards Pagassett: also all the great swamps that lyeth on the 
east side of the said Mill River, from Milford lyne northward and 
eastward unto the uttermost bounds of it."' This is signed by the 
marks of Towtanimoe, Younkitihue and Towhege, Indians present 
at the giving of the land. 

15 Sep., 1665, Ockenung, the sole and onely Sagamore ot 
Pagassett, with the assent of his subjects and his fellow pro- 
prietors, confirmed the grants formerly made, and granted them 
a new deed (Col. Rec. of Lands 1, 388; see Conn. Col. Rec. 
1665-1677, p. 51o). Richard was then dead; and we shall see, 
under his son Barnabas, what a curious history Hogg Meadow 
had. At tlie Court of Electors, held at Hartford, May 10, 1666, a 
committee was appointed to view these lands, and see what they 
were and whether fit for a township. The settlement went on, 
and in 1675 was named Derby. I do not believe Richard ever 
lived there. The first book of Derby is a small, meagre one. It 
shows: "Item: Mr. Goodyear, Mr. Wakeman, Mr. Gilbird, of 
Xew Haven, hath, bargained and sold to Richard Baldwin and, 
several others, of Milferd, a tract of land at a place called Paga- 
suck, and by their men, above named, put under jSTew Haven 
jurisdiction in the year 1655. The house lots are then drawn. 
Richard has one-half more than the others. He bought out Isaac 
Piatt, exchanged with Ebenezer Riggs, and at his death had 4i 
acres, instead of 2, which "all her living at Pagasuck" his widow 
sold to Mr. Alexander Bryan.* 

* Savag-e suggests that Richard Baldwin nia.N' have settled at Derby, but I do not think so. He was sick 
in Milford, 1659-'(i0; member for Milford KiO:^ to his death. His estate, as of Milford, was settled at Hartford. 
He was mentioned very frequently, and as of Milford. Paiigassett was likely a trading po^t. The first 
mention I find of it is in New Haven Col. Rec, 1642, where two men were watching at Pawgussett. In 
16-tC, a protest was received from the Dutch to "thee, Theopheles Eaten, Goveiior of the place called the 
Red Hills, in New Xetherland (but by the English called New Haven), against an establishment to draw 
and destroy trade near the Mauritius (Hudson) river.'' Answer was returned, that they h;ul lately built a 
small house upon the Pawgussett river, which they claimed to be within their own limits. Derb\', at the 
confluence of the Xaugatuck and the Housatonic, was a good place to draw trade, and likely by the river 
last named drew from the Hudson. Dr. O'Calaghan (N.Y. Col. Doc, Vol. 1, page 284,) says the post 
complained of was Springfield, Mass. I think this could not be. It was spoken of immediately after 
"Stanifert," and it was said the English of New Haven established the place. 



82 Baldicin Genealofjy. 

Richard Baldwin, in 1657, "propounded that he might hire of 
the jurisdiction the customs and excise of such wine and strong 
liquors as he should draw and sell hj retayle," for which he g^ve 
ten pounds a year. It seems that Ensign Brj^an had kept the 
ordinary, but growing tired of it, the town pitched upon another 
to succeed him; and, in 1656, the town had complained of him for 
breaking the court order in "selling strong water'' at a higher 
price than there allowed. Richard no doubt was a prudent, able 
man, and intended to sell strong water in a m-anner becoming a 
Puritan, and possibly not higher than the court allowed. 

It happened, however, in May, 1659, that John Heardman was 
complained of for being drunk and disorderl}'; and the marshall 
undertaking to arrest him, he "hitt his hatt o' the ground, and 
bid the marshal touch him if he durst (Col. Rec, p. 271). Heard- 
man thought they only had "3 or 4 quarts" for four persons, 
a y^h ye t-Qu^.t witnessed against as an excessive quantity for so 
small a company, w* y"^' court will consider of." Mr. Fenn said 
Mr. Heardman had friends who would speak for him. Being asked 
who, he named Sargent Baldwin ; but he now said y* sargent 
Baldwin had alwayes given him gcod counsell; to w^'^ it was said,^ 
had he given him more good counsell, and less liquors, it had 
been well. It afterward appeared that eleven men drank five 
pints, and "Baldwin desired that God would help him, while hee 
continues in that employment, to be more watchful," and that it 
happened while Richard was sick — the same sickness no doubt 
alluded to before. It appears that he was then keeping the 
ordinary: although it would seem now as if it was somewhat out 
of the centre of the town, unless he had changed location. 
Richard often appeared as attorney before the General Court of 
'New Haven, arguing in the manner of the day, rather technical 
for ours, but confining himself more to the case in hand, and with 
much less respect to hearsay evidence than was common in that 
day. At the General Court in June, 1654, it looked as if the 
designe against y^ Duch is like to goe on, and men were agreed 
on, of which Milford was to furnish tw^enfy-one. Richard was 
the one Ensign chosen for the colony. He was a member of the 
General Court for Milford, from May, 1662, to May, 1664, inclu- 
sive. In December, 1664, Milford liad broken " off from y« colony 
so y* neither magistrate or deputie attend the general meeting 






Richard^ of M'dford, Connecticut. 83 

The fact is, that by vote of the town, they had submitted them- 
selves to Coniiecticiit, 17 Xov., 1G(j4. At this meeting of the 
General Court, a committee, of whom Richard Baldwin was one, 
was appointed "fory*" consumating- of matters betwixt Conccticutt 
and us." They "were empowered and intrusted with the whole 
aiFayre" in p'paratory w^ay, communicating to y^ severall townes 
what they agree upon for their concurrence and coniirmation. 
Richard Baldwin had been unusually active and prominent for 
his age up to the union, which he favored in Milford. He died, 
however, 23d Jul}-, 1665, and his estate was presented at Hartford 
23 Sept., 1665. His eldest son received, as usual, a double portion. 
His youngest child, born after his death, was omitted altogether. 
His widow m. 2"^' in 1670, as his 2"'' wife, William Fowler,- Wil- 
liam.^- * 

Her second husband was b. in England; m., as early as 1645, 
Mary Tapp. He had, all by first wife, sons John, Jonathon, 
Mark, William ; and daus. Sarah ; Hannah, m. Daniel Buckingham ; 
Sarah m, John Smith; Mary; Deborah, m. Jere Lambert; Mercy, 
m. John Bills, of Lebanon, it is said. William Fowler was ^ 
leading, w^ealthy citizen in 1666; made lieutenant to "y^ train 
Band at Milferd," Deputy 1673, and same year one of the standing- 
council of war in the colony against the Dutch. In 1676, he was 
made captain. His will, dated Oct., 1682, proved 15 June,1683,pays 
a handsome tribute to his wife. He says : "//? primis, concerning 
my dear and loving wife, Elizabeth Fowler, my will concerning her, 
and as a token of my tender aifection to her (y* hath been a tender, 
dutiful and loving wife to me), I say that my will is (if it should 
please her to live with my children, to be a guide and help to 
them as a mother and head of a familv, I doe much desire it 
may be so), that she shall have the east end of my dwelling- 
house," &c. It appears, by New Haven Record, that she died 
July, 1688. 

After the death of Richard, his mother made the deed, a copy 
of which follows. It is found in the Records of the County 



''^ It is not known whence the Fowlers came. When in Bucks, England, in 1870, I found the name still 
in Aylesbun-, and that the family was in the vicinity before the emigration, with the given names common 
to the family here. I therefore thought it probable that the Fowlers were from that vicinity— a view 
atloptei by that high authority, Prof. William C. Fowler, of Durham, Conn. A search might make the 
connection. It is curious to note how far the intimacies and marriages of the Baldwins of this branch 
■were with families from Bucks.

Cougar. Not many years ago was found there, in the building,

3. SYLYANUS ^ Richard, ^ bapt. in Milford, Ct., 20 Nov., 1646 : 
m., 20 Sept., 1671, Mildred Prudden; bapt. 14 May, 1653; d. of 
Rev. Peter Prudden,* first pastor of Milford. 

* Rev. Peter Prndden was the first pastor of Milford, until 1643 — an indej)endent colony, by the way. 
Cotton Mather's sketch of him is interesting- (Pnidentius: the Life of Mr. Peter Prudden): "I am sure, 
tiien, 'tis & blessed child of God whose name is now before us (Prudden shall we call him, or Prudent?), 
who besides his other excellent iiualities, was noted for a singular faculty to sweeten, compose and qualify 
exasperated spirits, and stop or heal all contentions; whence it was that his town of Milford enjoyed jjeace 
with truth all his days — withstanding some disposition to variance which afterward broke forth among 
them." There were then two famous churches gathereil in two days, one following upon the other — Mr. 
Davenport's and Mr. Pruden's — and this vrith one singular circumstance, that a mighty barn was the place 
wherein the duties of that solemnity were attended. The next year, Mr. Prudden, with his church, 
removed into Milford, where he lived many years, an example of piety, gravitij and hoiling zeal against the 
growing' evils of the times. Mather compliments his discretion ; says he provided comfortably for liis 
family, and "lived to be about SC.year of his age, and 'the 56 year of the present age,' when his death was 
felt by the colony as the fall of a pillar which made the whole fabric to shake." Like that of Piccart, now 
let Prudden be under this

Richard, of Milford, Connecticut. 87 

She d. Jan'y, 171 :V. He d. ''the beginning of June, 1727/' 
His will is recorded in New Haven. His name is his grand- 
father's, with a Latin termination, as became the fashion of the 
day, and likely his father's London schooling. He is always 
called in the records, Lieut. Sylvanus, and his name occurs in the 
town records as often in places of trust or responsibility as any 
of the town. He was a very leading man. He was generally the 
"surveyor" in laying out town lands; 1674, he was on committee 
to determine bounds between Milford and Xew Haven; 1690, 
Lieut, for Dragoons for New Haven County. This was "for the 
framing and carrying on a war against our French and Indian 
enemies at Canada." From May, 1695, to Oct., 1699, he was 
generally Deputy for Milford. In 1685, he was an agent for Milford 
to buy a tract of land for the town of Milford from Conquepotana 
and Ahuntaway. 

29 Feb'j^, 1700, he was one of the agents to buy for the town a 
second tract from these and other Indians. The consideration 
was £15 in pay, and 15s. in silver. This land was the northwest 
part of Woodbridge, called, when laid ont in 1759, the Two Bit 
purchase, and described as being in Milford, north of Bladen's 
Brook, unto a brook called Lebanon Brook, one mile sixty rods 
east and west. It was held in trust for inhabitants of Milford, or 
those paying, by Bobert Treat, Esq., Mr. Thomas Clark, Mr. 
Samuel Buckingham, Sen., Lieut. Sylvanus Baldwin and Esq. 
George Clark. This deed was from Comikapay, Nauhautaway, 
Suckatash, Durkin, Wonenutacum, Pequit, Waranunton, Win- 
ahan and Waurasconut. signing by odd-looking marks. The next 
deed on Milford records is also from Indians, partly the same, 
dated 23 Feb'y, 1702, and there is added: " This may certify whom 
it may concern, that I, Sylvanus Baldwin, as an Interpreter, am 
full}'' satisfied that the Indians have sold the aforesaid lands, and 
signed this instrument with right understanding, as witness my 
hand." That he had skill in the Indian language, appears also 
in other instances. He is called in the church record, in 1686, 
Brother Sarjeant; but after that. Lieutenant. He was, in 1720, 
one of the patentee proprietors of Waterbury, but continued to 
reside and died in Milford. He was a man of large wealth. Only

"The Rev. Daniel Humphreys died Sept. 2nd, 1787, in the 81st year of his age. For more than half a 
century he was the established minister of the first Society in this town. Mrs. Sarah Humphreys, the 
affectionate wife of his youth, and tlie tender companion of his advanced age, died Jul}' 29, 1787, just five 
weeks before him. 

'"The seasons thus, 

As ceaseless round a jarring world they roll, 

Still find them happy, and consenting spring 

Sheds her own rosy garlands on thfir heads. 

Till evening comes at last, serene and mild. 

When, after the long vernal day of life. 

Enamored more a^s more remembrance swells 

With many a proof recollected lo^e. 

Together down thej" sink in social sleep ; 

Together freed, their gentle spirits fly 

To scenes where love and bliss inunortal reign." 

What children she had by Rev. Mr. Humphreys I do not know, sa*e General David, born in Derby, 1752- 
General David Humphreys graduated at Yale, 1767, known as the "young bard of Yale." He entered the 
army in 1778 as captain. He was quickly made aid to General Patterson, and two years later, aid to General 
Washington, a position he held during the war. At Yorktown he received the English colors, and bore the 
despatches and colors to Congress. He was voted a sword, and Congress made him Lieutenant Colonel, 
dating back his commission. In 1784, he went to Europe with Kosciusko. In 1786, he returned, and was 
representative for Derby until appointed Colonel in the western service. He afterward lived with Wash- 
ington, until 1790, wlien he was appointed Minister to Portugal, which post he held seven years. He was 
then, until 1802, Minister to Spain. He married, 1797, a daughter of John Bulkly, an English merchant at 
Lisbon, of great wealth. He introduced merino sheep into the United States ; and in 1806, erected the 
first woollen mill in the United States, in that part of Derby named from him Humphreysville. He was 
celebrated as a poet, and wrote also a Life of General Putnam and several political pieces. Duychinck's 
Cj'clopedia has an account of his writings, as well as an autograph, and a poor portrait, and a better 
eugra\'ing of Humphreysville. See also Barber's Historical Collection of Connecticut. He was General of 
the Connecticut Militia in 1812, and L.L.D. (Brown, 1802.)

7. TIIEOPHILUS 2 Richard, lb. in Milford, 26 Ap'l, 1659, as

the one in error. He lived in Milford ; m., 8 Feb'y, 168f, Elizabeth

Elizabeth Camplield already a Avidow, and dau. of Daniel Kellogg? 

The youngest child (Hezekiah) was a weaver. He died unmar- 
ried, his will being dated 15 April, 1728; and he remembers his 
mother, Elizabeth Merwin ; eldest sister, Abigail Peck ; sister, 
Martha Camp ; Joseph Peck, eldest son of Abigail ; Enos, eldest 
son of Martha; and brother, Theophilus. In 1699, the widow had 
leave from the Assembly to convey land, contracted by her hus- 
band to John Newton, and for the most part paid for to her 
husband, to John Newton, the son: she having, under a previous 
act, conveyed it to the widow of Newton, and it having been set 
to the son.

10. BARNABAS =^ Richard,! i^, i,;,;5^ .^f^^j, 03 July, in Miltbrd. 
His misfortunes commenced before his birth. He wa.s a po^^thu- 
mous child, and as the law then stood in Connecticut, was not enti- 
tled to, nor did he receive, in distribution, any share of the large 
estate of his father. lie m. I''*' Sarah, eldest dau. of Samuel 
Buckingham, of Milford, s. of Thomas, one of the first settlers. 
She was b. 8 Jan'y, 166i, and her mother was Sarah Baldwin, dau. 
Timothy, first settler at Milford, and m. 14 Dec, 1663. She died 
before 3 Dec, 1692, as appears from the will of her father of that 
date, wherein he remembers the husband, and oldest and youngest 
children (Thomas and Barnabas) of his deceased daughter. ^ Bar- 
nabus soon m. again, for 1 Jan'y, 169|, he and Mary his wife are 
received to full communion in Milford ch., and his first four 
children named below are baptized. 

His will, dated 5 May, 1740, and proved 19 Oct., 1741, gives his 
wife Abigail "twenty shillings, besides what is in her joynture.'' 
It has been singularly ditficult to get definite knowledge of the 
history of Barnabas. I have failed to find any record of his 
birth, any marriage or death; and I have also looked in vain for 
any record of the jointure in the records of Milford, Kew Haven 
and Derby. There were until 1850, on the farm occupied by him, 
many papers which were of much interest, and which would have 
probably told fully the story of his life. About that time, they 
were made into a bonfire in house-cleaning. In the absence of 
records, I sought his grave, which I found after some time in the 
cemetery in the west part of "Woodbridge, near Decby line. It is 
a slab, inscribed: "Here lyes the body of Mr. Barnabas Baldwin, 
aged 76 years; departed this life August y^ 22"''' 1741."' Born of 
a rich father, legitimate but no heir, I know not what life he led 
until 1711 or '12, whsn his brothers and sisters, by several con- 
veyances appearing on Milford records, conveyed to him "Hogg 
Meadow,'' reciting that this was done because he was not included 
in the distribution of Richard's estate, in 1665. He was then 
forty-five or forty-six years of age. Tliey only had half left to 
convey, for 23 May, 1720, Barnabas makes an agreement (6 Milf. 
Rec, 292), reciting, that whereas his father Richard, once of Mil- 
ford, did receive of Tantannomv, an Indian, a gift of that ti-act 
of land commonly known by the name of Hogg meadow purchase, 
partly in Milford and partly in Derby; and whereas my honored 
mother and eldest brother Sylvanus Baldwin sold half to Henry 



94 Baldwin Genealogy. 

Alien, and my mother and Allen agreed to make partition, and 
Allen sold to Roger Newton and John Hine, and Roger ISTewton's 
claim came to Fletcher N'ewton — then follows an agreement for 
partition, deed, &c. The partition was carried out, 1727, by sons 
of Barnabas, to whom their father had conveyed liberally of his 
property — one can but think — not wishing them to have the 
uncertain struggle his life must have been. 

This history has come down in tradition in Woodbridge. Dr. 
Goodsell, an aged and intelligent physician there twenty years 
ago, told me that Sylvanus (son of Barnabas) was born after his 
father's death, and left out of the inheritance — that his brothers 
and sisters, ashamed to leave him nothing, conveyed to him Hogg 
Meadow, then a swamp ; but as the country Avas cleared up, Syl- 
vanus was richest of all. I soon found that it could not be true 
of Sylvanus, but long after, by Milford records, that it was sub- 
stantially true of his father. Hogg Meadow, originally a swamp 
in the southwest part of AVoodbridge, is by far the best part of 
the township. 

The will of Barnabas does not mention Mary or Henry, but does 
mention the rest as "all my children." He leaves "to y® College 
at New Haven, fourty shillings." He was one of the grantees of 
the charter of Derby, and in 1738, one of the fifteen inhabitants

parish of Amity. He was a Selectman of Milford, a collector of 
Rev. Samuel Andrews' rates, and, with Samuel Clark, Senior, an 
appraiser of Gov. Treat's estate, in 1710. In 2 Sept., 1688, he 
was, with his brother Theophilus, witness in Milford to a deed 
from Sylvanus to Zachariah. About 1(392, he had from Milford, 
on distribution, the 90th lot, nine- acres (M. Ree. 2, p. 72, and p. 
126.) 1 March, 169|, he conveys land to Joseph Peck, Jun'r, and 
William Fowler. He had children :

1735, 28 Oct., he bought a farm in Xew Cheshire Parish 
(Cheshire, Conn.,) of Thomas Brooks, and the same year another 
of Stephen Osborn. He removed to Cheshire, and lived there 
until 22d Dec, 1752, when, in consideration of £3,600 money, old 
tenor, he conveyed the farm he lived on to Elnathan Beach. He 
removed to Dutchess county, N. Y., and of that county, in 1759, 
conveyed to his son Alexander, of Salisbury, Conn., his interest in 
the estate of his father Zachary. The records of the church in 
Cheshire, of the first pastor. Rev. Samuel Hall, are kept with 
great carelessness, and in a handwriting very remarkably bad, so

91. Z ACHARIAH * Zachariali ^ Zacliariali ^ Richard, ^ b. in Xew 
Milford, 6 Sept., 1709; bapt. 12 Aug., 1722, in Episcopal Church in 
Stratford. The hite S. H. Congar, Esq., of Newark, N. J , sup- 
posed this to be the Zachariah who was of Parsippany (Hanover), 
New Jersey. That one is said to have died 17 Nov., 1755, aged 52 ; 
and Mr. Congar presumed some of the dates to be incorrect. This 
did not, in the outset, look probable to me ; but I am now inclined 
to think him the same — after a very thorough search. I can find 
no other Zachariah of any branch to match either. John Ogden, 
Esq., of Parsippany, writes me, in 1874, that one of the descend- 
ants of that branch, now deceased, told him "the original ones 
were Zachariah and Abraham, who came to this region to preach 
the Gospel to the Indians, and did so with great success." At that 
time, it was not known that the Zachariah I am now placing had 
a brother Abraham ; but a visit to Stratford and Huntington dis- 
closed that fact, that descendants of this branch, now in Hunt- 
ington (two quite old ladies), had never heard of Zachariah and 
Abraham, showing that they must either have died young or 
settled at quite a distance. While they were young men, and 
members of the church, the Rev. David Brainard, the zealous 
apostle to the Indians came to Huntington and studied theology 
with Rev. Jedediah Mills, of that church, and afterward preached 
to the Indians in New Jersey. James H. Woodruff, Esq., of 
Hanover, writes me that in the expense-book of the Rev. Jacob 
(Ireen, first pastor at Hanover and Parcippany, appears twice the 
name of Zachariah as furnishing board. The problem is one that 
has interested me much, but I have been disappointed in the 
paucity of information about the missionary efforts in New Jersey. 
Mr. Congar gives to Zachariah the following children, very likely 
not the onlv ones: 

214. Jacob, b. about 1733. -f 

215. Job, b. about 1738. + 

216. Silas, b. about 1749. + 

Azariah Crane, Jr., in 1733, grants three acres at the "Mountain 
Plantation," to his "well-beloved s. in 1. Zachariah Baldwin." 
The wife of Crane was Rebecca; and Rebecca, the wife of Zacha- 
riah Baldwin, was buried at Parsippany, 15 June, 1791, aged 84.

96. ISRAEL^ Zachariah^ Zachariah,- bapt. in Stratford, Conn., 
12 Aug., 1722. The last named of children born, says his son 
David, in 1721. I am satisfied from several independent evidences, 
that he was the Israel who settled in Wolcott, Conn. By tradition 
in Huntington, he settled in that direction; the age corresponds; 
and by tradition in Wolcott, he came from the direction of Strat- 
ford, i.e. Milford, joining Stratford, his father being the ferryman 
between the two places. Lastly, I find no other Israel for this 
place, or other place for this Israel. He was not unlikely in Xew 
Haven for a while — is said to have m. 2"''' widow Chatterton, of 
Xew Haven, whose first husband was a ship carpenter, and worth 
considerable property. By his second w. he had a dan. 

222. Hannah, m. 12 Aug.. 1779, Judah Frisbee, who left a family which has 
the tradition as to wlience came Israel. Frisbie was b. 1744, and a leading man in 
Wolcott, leaving descendants. He was a soldier in the Revolution. 

Israel, m. ^'■''' in Wolcott, and had by his third marriage, 

223. David, b. 27 May, 1787, in Wolco«.+ 

Israel d. 13 jSTov,, 1805. Frisbie kept a journal, but^the informa- 
tion of the family is confused. He says, under date of April, 
1786, Mary Chatterton came to live with them. She d. 17 Oct., 
1825, aged 95. She is supposed to be sister of Israel's wife Hannah, 
who was then not likely widow Chatterton. Under date of 1783, 
he records the death of mother Baldwin, aged 80, more likely 
Israel's step-mother than his wnfe. He would hardly have m. 
after the death of a wife at 80, and had children.

July (his son Eli says 24 July), 1724, and continued to reside 
there. He is said, by his descendants, to have been Commissary 
and Paymaster in the Revolution, and to have lost his property 
through Continental money, received for beef and provisions fur- 
nished the army. He was active in his service, acting for a time 
as collector of provisions and other taxes,'^ as a commissary for 
purchases, and in the care of families of drafted men. He was 
also injured, in his advancing years, by the fall of a tree, so that 
he was unable to do much to recuperate his fallen fortunes. He

June, 1741. He d. 7 June, 1808, aged, town record says 86, family 
record says 88, but according to his entry of birth, it must have 
been less. 



* When Continental money had become worthless, and the people were well nigh disheartened, "Congress 
resolvetl, Feb'y 25, 1780, to call on the States for 3j)ecifif supplies — beef, flour, Indian corn, hay, salt, 
tobacco, rum, rice — those articles most needed for the use of the anny. These things were apportioned 
among the .States at stated prices, according to the natural advantages of e.ach — New England to furnish 
most of the rum ; and what is not a little remarkable, about four gallons of this popular beverage were 
required for each barrel of flour." (Historical Account of Connecticut Currency, by Henry Bronson, p. 124;)

There is there a very handsome cove, and a convenient landing-

he sorely annoyed tories who tried to use the cove for contraband 
trade with the enemy. He has, in a general way, a high revolu-

158. ELISHA^ Svlvanus 3 Barnabas, 2 b. 1 March, 1741, at Mil- 
ford, Parish of Amity. The late Dr. Goodsell, of Woodbridge, an 
aged and very intelligent resident of Woodbridge, told nie, iu 
1856, that Elisha was lame, and taught the first school in that part 
of Woodbridge where he lived. His niece, the late Mrs. Harvey 
Riggs, informed me that he lost a leg, before marriage, by the 
falling of a tree. He m., 20 Oct., 1768, Jerusha Coe, of iSouthbim*, 
Conn., where he bought a farm. The following children appear 
to him upon Southbury Record :

By his father's will he had, over and above what he had already 
received (£20), twelve acres of land in New Haven, and Sylvanus^ 
right in the Susquehanna Purchase being one-half right. Elisha 
sold out his lands in Southbury, and he and his whole family 
disappear from Southbury. I have not, after many years' search ^ 
been able to find out where — tradition says to Tioga county, N.Y.; 
to Chenango county, X. Y.; and to Pennsylvania — possiblj' to try 
the right in Susquehanna Purchase, but not very likely, as he 
deeds in 1790 to A. H. .Wheeler, to son Philo in 1795. Philo 
deeds to Griswold in 1800; and Elisha and Philo join in several 
deeds in 1805. A brief account of the Susquehanna Purchase, 
and the romantic attempt to establish the jurisdiction of Con- 
necticut over a part of Pennsylvania, will be found under John, ^ 
Senior, of Milford, Josiah - Samuel ^ Caleb ^ Jared.^ Elisha bought, 
16 April, 1793, of William Preston, of Woodbury; Elisha is then 
described of Southbury.

lie was a man of standing in Woodbridge, and in the year of 
his m. was Selectman. His father by his will, dated 1779, proved 
10 Jan'y, 1785, gave to him eighteen acres of land east of the river, 
three-fonrths of his dwelling, the other one-fourth to Hezekiah, 
and all the remainder of his property, having made ample previous 
provisions for his other children, to Charles and Hezekiah. 
Charles and Hezekiah for a long time conducted farming in part- 
nership, upon a portion of the same premises w^hich came to 
Richard^ from Tawtanimo, the "Indian Sagamore;" and the 
records of AVoodbridge, in their further purchases in company, 
bear witness to their enterprise. He lived with his brother as a 
bachelor, and m. the half-sister of his brother's wife. 10 April, 
1800, he bought of A. Bray a farm of two hundred and seventy- 
three acres, in that part of Wallingford, Conn., now Meriden; 
and subsequently made some additions to it, so that it contained 
some three hundred acres. This farm lay upon the Quinipiac 
river, largely bottom, and considerable of it is now occupied by 
the large pond of the Meridan Cutlery Company. It was by far 
the best farm in the town of Meriden. His original dwelling was 
burned by accident, but the new dwelling still stands on the road 
to Hanover. He was an early Methodist, when to be one was 
very unfashionable; for people of seven ty-tive years ago had their 
fashions in all things, as well as now. He was converted, perhaps,, 
under the preaching of Jesse Lee, that early itinerant who preached 
occasionally in the vicinity of his early life; and records his affec- 
tion for this and the other early preacher, Freeborn Garretson, 
in the name of one of his children. He died in Meriden (town 

* Thomas Hine had a home-lot in Milford, 28 Jan'j", 1646. The name is spelled Hind, Hine, and some- 
times Hinde. He was an early proprietor at Derby, but it is doubtful if he lived there. He Ijought the 
right at "Pogasuck," of John Bunvell. He died in Milford, and by will, dated 1694, remembered, among 
several thildren, Stephen, b. 25 Oct., 1663. He had ten children at least. In Lamberfs History of New 
Haven Colony is a tradition of his having relieved an Indian, exposed on the marsh b}- the Mohawks. For 
this he was held in high regard by the neighboring Indians, who said that when Hine or his descendants 
died, the Great Spirit took them at once to his big wigwam. 

Stephen, (2) b. 1663, was a shoemaker. In 1741, he deeded to his son Ambrose (3) lands in Hogg Meadow. 

Ambrose m., 6 Feb'j', 1717, in Boston, Sarah , of that pl^ce. He lived in Milford, and his will was 

dated 6 Dec, 1749; proved Dec, 1750. His son Stephen (4) was born about 1721. Stephen (4) died in Wood- 
bridge, 11 Sept., 1791, aged 70; he m., 26 .Jan'v, 1744, Elizabeth Carrington, dau. .John, of Amity; she d. 20

Delaware county, i^. Y., 12 May, 1853. By liis will, he left a tract 
of land in Meriden to build a Methodist church, but the land was 
sold and money lost without eifecting its purpose; and the first 
Methodist church was built there not many years since. If the 
meeting-house was not built, the land was to be disposed of by 
the Quarterly Conference, Durham Circuit, or agent that the 
Conference may appoint, by sale or otherwise; and if sold, the 
interest of the avails was to be given to the traveling preachers of 
the Rhiubeck District, at the discretion of the Presiding Elder.

being three candidates. He stood highest in Trumbull and Port- 
age, second highest in Geauga, and third in Ashtabula. Whittlesey 
w^as second in Trumbull and Portage, third in Geauga, and second 
in Ashtabula, where a citizen of that county got the highest. It 
was singular. Whittlesey was elected without standing highest 
in the vote of any of the counties he represented. There were 
three other candidates, all together receiving about two-thirds as 
many votes as Whittlesey and Baldwin. He was thereafter elected 
twice to the House of the State, twice to the Senate. In 1828, was 
Associate Judge of Trumbull county ; in 1832, a delegate to the 
Baltimore Convention; in Nov., 1832, one of the Presidential 
Electors. He in Sept., 1811, shipped cheese to market, and was 
perhaps the pioneer in a commerce which has grown to be a large 
one in that part of the State where he lived. This sketch is mainly 
from a manuscript written in 1836, now in the archives of the 
Historical Society, at Cleveland. In 1836, he was the Democratic 
candidate for Governor of Ohio, and was defeated bv a small 
majority. He d. in Boardman, 3 Dec, 1841, so. quietly that his 
wife, rising at four, found him dead at six. His extensive works

carding and clothing works, and had them running When he died; 
but his losses, and the times of 1840, badly crippled his estate. His 
widow sold her dower for one thousand dollars, and with that 
bought a farm, upon which she settled, which is still in the family.

1804, in ]\Ieriden, Conn.; ra., 14 April, 1830, Lydia Rice, b. 5 
Feb., 1800, dan. Ezekiel, of Meriden. His name, from the two 
famons preachers, Jesse Lee and Freeborn Garretson, shows his 
father's predilection, and he has been all his life an active, zealous 
Christian; a Methodist, hut not sectarian in feeling. He was very 
active in the Anti-Slavery cause, when to be active required 
courage, and in 1835, was mobbed with Garrison, in his home at 
Middletown, Conn. He resolutely used none but free-labor goods, 
and outside of his regular business, kept such goods for others. 
He was a candidate on the Anti-Slavery ticket for Governor vf 
Connecticut. He has lived to see no more to he done for the 
Anti-Slavery cause. He has always been as strong an enemy to 
drunkenness, and in 1876 was the Prohibition candidate for Gov- 
ernor of Connecticut, a candidacy he had previously tilled, and 
thirty years after he was the Anti-Slavery candidate. 

He commenced business as a merchant and manufacturer of 
silver spoons, with his brother Seymour, in the little town of 
Oxford, Conn, — the sales being partly by peddlers sent around the 
country under the firm of J. & S. Baldwin. In 1832, they moved 
the business to Middletown, Conn. In 1835, Se^ymour moving- 
west, he continued the business, and then went into the profitable 
manufacture of plated ware. Being severely attacked by con- 
sumption, he resolutely gave up his business entirely and warred 
with the disease w^ith the same steady courage he has exhibited 
in politics, and in a few years was entirely recovered. In 1858,

he became President of the Central Bank of Middletown, the 
stock of which, under his management, rose from |55 to ^105 per 
share, par being $75. He is still the President of the Central 
I^ational Bank. ]Ie has been also President of the People's In- 
surance Company of Middletown, an unambitious and successful 
institution since its foundation in 18(37.

904. Harriet Eice, 8 Oct., 1883, in ]\Iiddleton, Conn. She was a person of fine 
mind, excellent education, a good classical scholar, and a person of thorough, 
intelligent religious convictions. She was a teacher, from the desire to be useful. 
After the recent war she Avent South in that capacity to the freedmen, and fell a 
victim to the climate. She d. num. at Eufala, Ala., 28 March, 1870. 

905. Maria Antoinette, 22 Nov., 1835; d. num., July, 1861. She was a charm-

She exhibited at times a high poetic temperament. She wrote seldom, but her 
minor pieces are worthy to live. She liked only the short ones, written spontan- 
eous!}'.

Middletown paper, was singularly adorned by an even, happy temper, her character 
was strong and harmonious. 

Mrs. Lydia Baldwin d. 18 May, 1876. Her life was one of very 
great usefulness and active charity. She seemed to the writer as 
goed a woman as he ever knew, and withal of an excellent good 
judgment in all matters of life: her kindness was beyond all 
praise.

In 1831, the firm of J. & S. Baldwin moved to ^[iddletown, 
Conn., and Sej'mour in Ma}', 1835, to Elyria, Lorain county, Ohio, 
Mr. Baldwin has been a man of great power of endurance, energy 
and ability in his business as amerchant. He adopted and insisted 
upon the one-price cash system, and, by the small margin at which 
his mercantile skill and system enabled«him to sell goods, has done 
much to enrich the countv where he has lived. His business has 
been very large for a country merchant. 

In 1847, having ac(|uired such a competence as he had fixed 
upon when he first went to Elyria, he returned to Meriden. He 
was there soon engaged in various business, being President of 



Richard, of 3Iilford, Connecticat. !1 

the Meriden Macliiue Coinpanj, the tirst President of the IIoi 
Bank, now Home National Bank, as well as a partner in a l>ai 
ing firm in Cleveland, Ohio. 

In 1856, he resigned the presidency of the Home Bank, ai 
retnrned to Eh'ria and his original business, his firm also esta 
lishing a branch store in Wellington, in the same county. Attl 
two stores, the sales reached over four hundred thousand dolln 
per annum, besides produce, in which a large business was don« 
p.aying cash, or goods at cash price, as the farmer preferred. Tl 
two firms continue under the name of Baldwin, Laundon & C 
in Wellino-ton, and Baldwin, Lersch & Co. in Elvria. Mr. Baldw. 
has been contented with modest profits; but, on the other banc 
has never done business at a loss. He has been a model merchant 
He still resides in Elyria, interested in business, but not giving il 
his own time, but at the present writing giving his time to th' 
building of a church, for which he has donated a fine lot, facing 
the public square.

store, in Middletown, he established himself in Hartford, Conn., 
as a grocery merchant. His health failed, and ho sold out. A 
remarkable event is his recovery from the sickness which ensued. 
He had the consumption, and was confined to the house for more 
than two years, and for that length of time could not speak aloud. 
To those who knew w^ell his condition, his recovery seems won- 
derful. He is, like his father, a very patriotic and benevolent 
citizen, and Secretary or Treasurer of several benevolent enter- 
prises. He is residing at present in Middletown, Conn., engaged 
in business.

degree in 1857; the same year, commenced practice in Cleveland, 
Ohio, where he has been for more than twenty-three years, in the 
same office. In 18G1, he became partner with S. B. Prentiss, the 
senior of the firm, whose office he entered in Cleveland in 1857. 
His partner going on to the bench, he entered into partnership

John Baldwin, of Stonington, Connecticut, 



AND HIS DESCENDANTS. 



1. JOHN BALDWIN, of Stonington, Connecticut, was son of 
Sylvester, who died on the passage to America, 21 June, 1638, and 
brother of Richard, of Miiford. See ante page 41. His identity 
is established, beyond all question, by legal proceedings after the 
death of his f^on John. He was baptized in Parish Aston Clinton, 
County Bucks, England, 28 October, 1(335, and no doubt then quite 
young. Sylvester Baldwin's family being part of the " New Haven 
Company,"' removed to that place.* John was married to his 
first wife in 1656. According to the records, a home lot, of an 
acre and a half, was assigned to him, and he received other grants 
of land in Miiford. His first wife died in 1657, soon after the 
birth of her son John. Miss Calkins says his name appears in the 
New London records occasionally after 1654. His descendant, 
John D., of Worcester, says 1664. He was in Miiford in 1658, 
and one of the heroes of New London, who had the strife with 
men of Lyme, in 1671, about]the boundary line. On the 24th of 
July, 1672, he married Rebecca Palmer, daughter of the first Wal- 
ter Palmer, of Stonington, and young widow of Elisha Chees- 
borough. They settled in Stonington, where she owned a large 
tract of land. She outlived him about thirty years, and died 
May 2'"'' 1713. The children were: 

2. John, b. April I'S, 16o7; bapt. as an adult in StOTiiuirton, and d. in 1678, 
"while gone to England. As the record which eslablishes this fact proves the line, 
I add it. His grandmother, Mrs. Astwood, had remembered liim in her will, from 



* It has been generally supposed, that Mrs. Baldwin lived for some years in New Haven, her name, with 
family, being in the list of 1643; bnt see ante pajfes 77 and 7S, as to the New Haven and Miiford lists. 
She may have remained in New Haven until her, second marriage, as is thought by her descendant of this 
line, Hon. John D. Baldwin ; but I do not consider it proved. After her marriage to Astwood, the faniilj' 
no doubt lived in Miiford, next door to her son Richard Baldwin.

England about twenty -tive years since, and is supposed to be deceased. Upon w"ch 
ye court allows administracon of s'd legacy to the said Silvesf Baldwin, he having 
given sufReicnt bond for his faithful administration of the same according to law, 
and refund the estate if any other heir appeare." 

The legacy was made in 1679, and was a singular legacy to 
grant administration for twenty-three years after, but the estate 
had no doubt been sold, and this proceeding was to get the 
proceeds.

John, the fatlier, died 19 August, 1683. Jolin Baklwin was in 
the famous ditference between New London and Lyme. A 
meadow at Black Point, claimed by both towns, had been 
reserved by each for the respective clergymen of the towns. The 
w^ar was in 1671. About thirty New London men, among whom 
were the leading persons in the town, went to mow the grass for 
their minister, and were met and resisted by a party from Lyme, 
there on a similar errand for tJuin minister. There was strife; 
and constables were there, and justices too, so that warrants and 



Johi}, of Sto)(ington, Connecticut. 241 

arrests were well mixed up with blows. A general melee took 
place, with no very great harm. The cooler heads finally agreed 
to let the law decide the matter, and " drank a dram together with 
some seeming friendship." Each party was indicted; and as no 
disinterested men could be found in that connty, they wcr-c tried 
at Hartford — twenty-one men of New London, and fifteen of 
L^'me. The town of oS^ew London was fined £lo, and Lyme £9. 

John Baldwin was complained of by a Lyme man for bruising 
him with a cudgel. President Dwight says the two towns agreed 
to submit it to a combat, two being selected by each, of whom 
the Lyme champions beat. This late appeal to "wager of battle" 
is dubious.

m., April 3, 1832, Lemira 
Hatheway, of Dighton, Mass., 
dau. of Capt. Ebenezer and 
Hope (Pierce) Hathaway. She was b. March 6, 1813. Having 
by his own efforts gained a liberal education, studied in the 
Divinity aud Law Schools, he received the degree of A. M. from 
Yale College. In 1833, he settled in North Branford, Conn., as a 
preacher, where he remained seven or eight years. He acquired 
the French and German languages, and by 1844 had given special 
attention to archaeology, and its bearing upon the current schemes 
of ancient history; wrote much for magazines and newspapers, 
and became editor of the '-Charter Oak,'' an Anti-Slavery news- 
paper in Hartford, and afterward of the ^''Commonwealth,'' piib- 
lished in Boston. In 1859, he became editor aud proprietor of the 
"Worcester Spy,'' one of the oldest papers in New England, 
which he still (in 1880) conducts with his sons. In 1863, he was 
elected to Congress, and twice re-elected. In 1847, he published 
"Raymond Hill,'' a small volume of poems; in 18(39, a work, 
" Pre-historic Nations ;" and in 1872, one on "Ancient America." 
The last two are published by Harper & Bros. The last is a very 
popular, useful aud sensible manual of American Archaeology, 
more popular in its subject than the first. 

This sketch is, in the main, taken from Appletou's Cj'clopedia. 
I am much indebted to Mr. Baldwin for this sketch of the de- 
scendants of John, of Stonington, substantially furnished by him, 
and twice as long as my own.

John Baldwin, of Norwich, Connecticut, 



AND HIS DESCENDANTS. 



1. JOHX BALD^YIN■, of Xorwich, Conn., by a tradition of 
quite unusual value, came to the Xew World with some family in 
Milford related to him. The family with which he came was very 
likely that of Sylvester Baldwin, who died on board ship Martin, 
June 21, 1638, and whose son Richard settled in Milford. Mrs. 
Baldwin had lauds in New Haven, with five in her family, and he 
seems to be needed to make the number. He mav have been the 
John who testified to the nuncupative will of Sylvester. In all 
probability, the John on board the Martin was either John Senior, 
of Milford, or John, of Norwich. John, son of Sylvester, was 
incompetent by interest, and too young (three years old) to testify 
to a nuncupative will. 

Hon. John D. Baldwin, of Worcester, a descendant of John, son of 
Sylvester, stated in the New England Historical and Genealogical 
Register, for April, 1873, that the Family Bible origin ally belong- 
ing to Deacon Theophilus Baldwin, son of John, of Stonington, 
went to his son John, whose wife lived to l)e 104 years old, and 
lived in the familv of the father of John D. Baldwin until 1817. 
She had the old Bible, which, after her death the next year, went 
to the eldest uncle of John D., and was lost a few years after. 
About 1828, John D. wrote down several matters from the Bible. 
What he wrote is fairly pi'oved otherwise, and his aunt was no 
doubt correct in saying that the o;d Bible said that an orphan 
cousin ot John, of Stonington, came to America in the family of 
Sylvester Baldwin, remained in the famil}- until he was married, 
and settled in Norwich. The word was "cousin,'' which however 
at that time did not necessarily mean first cousin, but second 
cousin, or some other form of relationship not very distant. It 
often, in early times, meant nephew. 



270 Baldwin Genealogy. 

George W. Baldwin, Esq., of Boston, has been chiefly instru- 
mental in a very extensive searcli made in England lor Baldwin 
genealogy, the result of which appears herein. Mr. Chester has 
sought very perseveringly for John, of Is'orwich. He finds, among 
the English Johns, one who answers well the description of John, 
of Xorwich, and who seems extremely likely to have been him. 
He will be found in the preceding account ol Richard, of Bucks 
county, as John * John -^ Henry - Richard.^ The father, Jolin,^ died 
after June 9, 1634, and before Oct. 14, 1634. The son disappears 
in England. He was not own cousin to John, of Stonington, but 
own cousin to Sylvester, father of John, of iStonington. Sylvester, 
the father, was executor of the will of Richard, of Dundridge, 
under which John was a legatee. He was young in 1622, as his 
elder brother Richard had only then completed his apprenticeship, 
and ensrasred in business some time after. A further discussion of 
this will be found in its appropriate place, in the account of the 
English Baldwins. He was early in Guilford, Conn. While he 
lived in Guilford, he married Haunah Birchard, of that town, 
April 12, 1653. Savage says she was probably a daughter of 
Thomas. He removed, in 1660, to ^N'orwich, Conn., and was one 
of the thirty original proprietors of that town. The births of his 
three older children appear in Guilford. The others are not 
entered in Norwich. He was, in 1678, Constable, then an ofiice 
of trust and honor.

Miss Caulkins speaks of his making a cross for his signature. 
This, however, was only in his old age, when afflicted with blind- 
ness. He wrote in earlier years, and there is no reason to suppose 
he had not the usual education of the day. Thus, in 1723, he 
signs his name in conveying to his son Thomas, but in 1733 
makes his mark.

Ebenezer was a good man, he seems, in those early puritanical 
times, to have bad a little trouble in youth. It appears, from Miss 
Caulkins' book, that in 1738 a charge was brought against Thomas 
Avery, Ebenezer Baldwin, Abial Marshall and David Bingham, 
single men, and boarders or sojourners in the town, that they

did eoiiveau and meet in company with sundry others, att y'^ house 
of William Waterman, y^ 4*'' day of June last, it being Sabbath 
evening."' Xo complaint was made of any disturbance or impro- 
priety of conduct; it was the bare fact of a social meeting on 
Sunday eveninj;, which was presented as contrary to law. He 
pleaded not guilty, and replied to the charge : 

" True it is, we did converse with the company, and att y-' time 
and place sett forth in y^ complaint, but he saith he is not guilty 
for these reasons: l**- That he is not a single person, as having an 
apprentice by indenture; 2"''- he is not a />ortrc/er, having y*^ care 
of a family; S''"-^' he is not a sojourner, as living in y® place where 
he was born and bred." 

" The Court is of opinion he is guilty, and fines him 5*- and costs. 
Appeal granted, to be heard in y*^ County Court.'' 

He was a leading and prominent man in his town, known as 
Captain, and tilling places of trust. Among others, he was first 
named of the Committee on the first and second Delaware pur- 
chases (east of the Wyoming settlements), it being quite the 
fashion of those days to speculate largely in real estate ; and in 
1768, even the town of Norwich voted to apply for a grant of 
twenty miles square of the colony (of Connecticut) lands lying 
west of the Susquehannah (Wyoming) purchase, with leave to buy 
the ''native right to said lands."

win, who departed this life May 2"*^' 1792, aged 80 years. A 
reputable citizen, a kind husband, a tender parent, an amiable, 
cheerful neighbor, and a good man. Supported by Christian for-

long-wished-for eternity of happiness." 

21. BEXJAMm 4 John ^ John ^ John.i He disappeared, as did 
the rest of the family, from Lebanon, Conn. It is by no means 
certain, yet I think it very probable, that he was the Benjamin 
late of Loudon, Berkshire county, Mass., the administration of 
whose estate was granted July 5, 1787, to Benjamin of the same 
place. (See further 52 Samuel.) There was no distribution, or I 
might tell more of his children.

settled in Lebanon, Conn. Dec. 21, 1743, he was one of a Com- 
mittee in "Newent in Norwich," Conn., to make the Society rate. 
The family disappears from that vicinity; and after long search, I 
feel confident his children, if not himself, settled in Norwich, Vt., 
which town was owned and settled from this vicinity. A further 
discussion of this may be found under Daniel * Daniel -^ Benjamin ^ 
Henrv.^ 

He was an original proprietor of Norwich, Vt., in 1761, and his 
orio^inal riffht, savs Rev. Mr. Slafter, must have been about live 
hundred acres drawn to him. Nov. 25, 1775, as of Norwich, he 
sells one hundred acres, the right of Elias Warner, to Sawyer, of 
Norwich, Conn. He sold Ebenezer Ball, of Lebanon, Conn., one 
hundred acres. Mr. Slafter, who was resident clergyman at Nor- 
wich, Vt., for some time, makes at Norwich, the brothers Daniel 
and Levi. Of these, I judge the oldest to be

Dec. 14, 1701. At thirteen, he came under the tuition of his

Danbury of the Battle of Bunker Hill, he was sent oa horseback 
tifteen miles to the clergyman of iTew Milford, to borrow a paper 
containing the account of it. On his return, the inhabitants 
assembled to hear it read. His brother d., in 1776, of exposure in 
the Revolution. In 1777, he entered Yale, and graduated in 1781, 
and was the last survivor of the class. When the British attacked 
ISTew Haven, he and a company of fellow students joined the 
forces to resist them at "Neck Bridge." In 1783, he became Tutor 
at Yale. In 1786, he was admitted to the bar. Four years after, 
he became Clerk of the United States Court, and continued an 
extensive practice in the State Court until 1803, when he became 
Representative in Congress. He declined a re-election in 1805. 
In 1806, he was appointed, by the Legislature, Judge of the Supreme 
Court of the State, and continued by annual appointment (then 
the custom) for eleven years. In 1822, he was President of the

52. SAMUEL ^ Benjamin ^ Jobn,^ b. about 1760. Moved about 
1810 to Granville, Licking county, Obio, and bad at least a son: 

134. Benjamin. 

January 6, 1806, he was Deacon at Sandisfield. 

In February, 1880, after writing the account of Samuel and his 
father, and having, after much labor, and two or three changes of 
opinion, placed Benjamin in this line, I am furnished by C. W. 
Bryant, Esq., of Granville, with extracts from a History of Gran- 
ville, by Rev. Jacob Little, D.D., published not far from 1850, in 
the ^^ Observer,'' of Hudson, Obio. 

In Granville, Feb. 17, 1823, Deacon Samuel Baldwin died, aged 
63 yrs. He was descended from a pious family in Lebanon, Conn. 
He removed to Otis, Mass., when he was five years old ; when 
thirteen, his father died, and he took care of the family till he was 
twenty-four. When converted, " he thought he could not live in 
a world so wicked, and meditated the life of a hermit." " He 
sometimes had such strong views of heavenly things as to take 
aAvay his strength." The Church at Otis had no pastor, elected 
him Deacon, and enjoyed a revival. He seems to have filled, in a 
great degree, the pastoral office. He removed to Granville, Lick- 
ing county, Obio, in 1810. In 1813, he was elected deacon. Very 
few people seemed to live so near to God, and his modest, unas- 
suming manners gave great eiiect to his prayers and exhortations. 
Sometimes, when praying for his children or the church, he would 
be so overcome as to stop. As be advanced in life, he grew in 
grace, yet he saw but one of a large family of cl\ildren the subject 
of grace. He often said, I leave them in the hands of God, who 
will do them no injury. Within ten years after his death, all pro- 
fessed their faith in Christ. He was sick for a long time with 
consumption. He requested his wife to tell him when he was

dying, saying he feared it no more than going to sleep. When 
the time came, he was lying with the palm of his hand under one 
cheek. Some said, " How sweetly he sleeps ! " In a moment he 
was gone. All the family left Granville many years ago, and I 
have failed to trace them.

by the name of Eames, and removed to Canaan, IS". H. His mother, 
says the author of his memoir, was remarkable for talent, and a 
woman of eminent pietj'. He early read sermons in Canaan, and 
before he was thirty was elected to the General Court from that 
town. At the age of twenty-two, on the 22nd of September, 1775, 
he was m. to Miss Ruth Huntington, of Norwich, Conn., who died 
Feb. 11, 1812 ; they had six children. He m. 2'"i' Miss Margaret 
Duncan, of Haverhill, Mass., who survived him. He became an

eminent Baptist clergyman. He was settled in Boston, Nov. 11, 
1790. He was in his ministry faithful, affectionate and devoted, 
and very successful. In 1803, he commenced the publication of 
the '•''American Baptist Magazine,'' of which he was sole, and then 
senior editor until his death. A controversial work, in answer 
to Rev. Samuel Worcester, is considered his ablest effort. In 
1803, he received the degree of D.D. at Union College. He was 
long Trustee of Brown University, and of Waterville College, 
Maine. He died while on a visit to Waterville, Aug. 28, 1824. 
He died almost instantly. " Spared the pain of death, and agonies 
of separation, he was not, for God took him." He was rather 
above the usual size, firmly built, and as he grew old inclined to 
corpulency. His countenance was dignified, mild and engaging ; 
his hair in later years white, so that his appearance was very 
venerable. A memoir, by Rev. Daniel Chessman, was published 
in Boston in 1826, eighty-four pages ; appended is a list of publi- 
cations, thirty-one sermons, and six other works. Miss Caulkins 
says the native vigor of his intellect was equal to all demands 
made upon it, and he exerted a powerful inHueuce in favor of his 
denomination.

on the opposite side of the river. The men of the neighborhood 
rallied, but before their arrival the garrison had surrendered, only 
to be massacred by their captors. Ebenezer vividly recollected

tlie event, Tlis father had arrived too late to take part in the 
combat, but the father of his future wife was among the slain ; 
and her mother, who had stationed herself on a rock in sight of 
the fort, witnessed the entire tragedy. Her tombstone in Yonkers, 
X. Y., is said to bear the inscription : " She was made a widow, at 
the surrender of Fort Griswold, b}' the traitor ArnoUl." He was 
a carpenter and builder. lu 1804:, he first visited Yonkers, to 
erect a spire upon a church, and remained there. There was no 
school. He was active in securing one, and his brother, Erastus, 
was the first teacher. At the breaking out of the second war with 
Great Britain, he was appointed Lieutenant of a company of rifle- 
men with the 12th Regiment. In March, 1814, he became Cap- 
tain, and in 1816, after the war was over, was promoted to be 
Major. He remained inactive business until he was over seventy. 
His last enterprise was the erection in Broadway of a block of 
brick buildings, known as " Baldwin's Block," and after the sale 
of this property he lived in retirement.

John Baldwin, of Milford, Connecticut, 



AND HIS DESCENDANTS. 



1. JOHN BALDWIN, Senior, of Milforcl, Conn., came to Con- 
necticut with the other Milford Baldwins, with the New Haven 
Company. His relationship to the other Baldwins cannot be 
determined with certainty. Mr. Savage says he was the son of 
Sylvester, the son of Richard. This cannot be, as will be seen in 
the account of John, of Stonington, It has been suggested that 
he might be the brother of Sylvester. It will be seen in the ac- 
count of the English family, iirst published by me in the "N. E. 
Historic Genealogical Register," in July, 1872, that Sylvester had 
a brother John, Sylvester, it will be remembered, died on the 
passage, in 1(J38, and his nuncupative will was testiiied to by John 
Baldwin. I am not personally conversant with the then law of 
testimony in Massachusetts, but have as high authority as Mr. 
William H, Whitmore for saying that John, the witness, could not 
have been John, son of Sylvester, on account of his interest. Nor 
could it well have been either him or John, of Norwich, on 
account of their tender years, making them hardly competent to 
remember a will, and very unlikely witnesses in a well tilled ship 
of grown and friendly people. 

It seems probable that John, the witness, was John, Senior, of 
Milford. I doubt whether he was John, the brother of Sylvester, 
for the reason that in the will of their grandfather he names his 
grand-children, John and Henry, sons of Sylvester, I conclude 
that John was probably the elder. If John was the elder, he must 
have died young, as in the will of the Uncle Richard he speaks of 
Henry as his next heir. He is more likely, I think, to have been 
a cousin of Sylvester, or, not unlikely, a nephew; in fact, his 
apparent age would hardly permit him to be a brother.

People then married young. Sylvester's son Richard was bap- 
tised 1622 ; John's four children were baptised 1648, and the old- 
est born, probably, about 1641, (Mr. Savage says, 1640.) The 
name of John Baldwin was very common in Bucks at ihat time. 
I presume it likely he will be found to be a nephew or cousin, for 
I believe the matter ma}' in the end be determined with reasonable 
certainty. That he was of Bucks county and some relative of 

«/ h V 

Sylvester I have little doubt. It may not be without interest that 
the names of his children, John, Samuel, George and Richard 
were common among the Baldwins of Bucks ; but there were so 
many Johns in Bucks that they are very difhcult to identity. 

In February, 1639, Milford was purchased of the Indians. The 
settlement Avas made during the year, and Nov. 29, 1639, the 
names of the "Free Planters" appears in the Milford records. 

The name of John Baldwin is one of those following after this 
list, as being a settler, but not a free planter. This was because 
he was not a church member. Milford was a religions community, 
or colony, for it was at first a separate settlement, with an inde- 
pendent government of its own. This government was organized 
November 20, when it was voted that the officers and voters should 
be church members. It was also voted " that they ^vould guide 
themselves in all their doings b}' the written word of God, till 
such time as a body of laws should be established." He, however, 
joined the church, March 19, 1648. He was buried in Milford, 
June 21, 1681. His first wife was named Mary, and by her he 
had children : 

2. Johu, b., says Savage, 1640, bapt. March 26, 1648. + 

3. .Josiah, b. 1642. + 

4. Samuel, b. 1645. He is not mentioned, nor any descendant, in the full 
will of his father, made in 1681. A Samuel, of Milford, was drowned in Fairfield, 
in 167:}, leaving a family in Milford, says tlie Worcester Mss., (letter of .Judge Sim- 
eon Baldwin.) He must be the Samuel whose estate was appraised at Milford, 1673, 
leaving a home lot sold by his widow to Alexander Bryan, as appears by Brj-an's 
will, dated July 22, 1679. That if he left children, they died without issue is shown 
by a deed in 1696 by his brother .Joseph as co4ieir of his father John, of Milford, 
deceased, of part of the estate of his brother Samuel, of Milford, deceased. Samuel 
was accepted to full commimion, June 25, 1671. After the baptismal entry of 1648, 
oppos'ite the name of Nathaniel, is the entry, "deceased Jan. 16, 1671 " (old style — 
new, 1672). It cannot mean Nathaniel, who survived his father, and had children 
as early as 1676. It must be by error placed one line too low, and be reallj' meant 
for Samuel.

for a time, where, says Savage, his children were born. According to Lambert, 
he settled in Milford in 1695. He was a physician there. Their ch. were: (61) 
Ebenezer, who joined the Church in Milford in 1714, and in 1719 was administrator 
to his father, exhibiting an act of the Assembly authorizing sale, etc. ; (62) John, 
(68) Phinehas, graduated at Yale College in 1704; Rev. (64) Benjamin, bapt. 1696. 
Ebenezer and John are placed, by Savage, as probable children of Dr. John. 

14. Richard, b. 2nd week of June, 1665. + 

I have found no authority for the dates of birth of the first four 
children: but the dates given by Mr. Savage are very probable, 
yet I think more probable than certain. The four were baptised 
March 26, 1648. John Baldwin's homestead was original lot No. 
13, in Milford, on the Avest side of the river, a little northwest of 
the Town Hall, on the premises now or lately occupied by Rev. 
Asa M. Train. 

His 2"*^ wife died Sept. 2, 1670, and he was buried June 21, 
1681. His will, dated May 24, 1681, gives to his eldest son John, 
sons Josiah, Il^athaniel and Joseph, dau. Elizabeth Porter, dau. 
Abigail Baldwin, two daus. Sarah and Hannah, son George, and 
sons Obadiah and Richard ; with provision, if either dies before 
marriage or unmarried. John Baldwin's descendants are very 
numerous, more so than any of the branches, unless it may be 
Joseph. 

Savage savs this John removed to ]^ewark a vaar or two after 
1666, but returned to Milford. There were, in i!^ewark, John 
Sr. and John, Jr. Both remained there, one being John- John, ^ 
and the other John - ISTathauiel.^ In correction of errors, I may say 
further, that Mr. Cougar, in his unusually accurate book, says Eliza- 
beth married Peck. My own transcript from the Milford Records 
agrees with Savage, showing Porter, though with a mark indi- 
cating dimness of record. His heirs, Joseph, Obadiah, Sarah 
and Hannah, Nov. 11, 1691, submitted to the arbitration of the 



300 Baldwin Genealogy. 

" honored Deputy Governor Major Robert Treat, Mr, Daniel Buck- 
ingham and Samuel Eells," a difference as to "the articles in the 
inventory of John Baldwin, deceased." The decision was given, 
Richard consenting. 

2. JOHX 2 John,i bapt. in Milford, Conn., March 20, 1648, eldest 
of four, and no doubt born some years before ; Savage says 1640^ 
which I think must be a guess. The first few pages of the Milford 
record of births is gone. He was accepted to full communion, in 
Milford, Oct. 8, 1662. He m. Hannah Brewen, or Bruen, dau. of 
Obadiah, of New London, niece of his stepmother (see Appendix), 
Oct. 3, or 30, 1663. She d., and he m. 2"^'' before 1686, but I cannot 
tell when, Ruth Bottsford, dau. of Henry Bottsford, of Milford. 
He was John, Sen., of Newark, IST. J. Many descendants of the 
various lines in this volume are in New Jersey, whose ancestors 
were among the first settlers. 

The settlement w^as first broached, in 1661, by the Deputy Gov- 
ernor of New Haven Colony, Matthew Gilbert, a Milford man, who 
wrote to Governor Stuyvesant that " a Companie of considerable 
that came into N. E. that they might serve God w*^ a pure con- 
science, and enjoy such liberties and privileges, both Civill and 
Ecclesiasticall, as might best advantage unto" * * * "and they, 
being desirous to provide for their posterities, so as their outward 
comfortable subsistence and their soules' welfare might, in the 
use of suitable means through the blessing of the Almightj^, be 
obtained." A committee of Milford men had been appointed to 
treat and select land. This ended in the settlement of Newark, 
which was expected to be under the jurisdictiou of the Dutch. 
They were to enjoy many freedoms, being especially desirous 
"for the enlargement of the Kingdom of Christ Jesus in a congre- 
gational way." 

Their local laws "being found to concur with the Holy Scrip- 
tures," were to be confirmed; "but in dark and dubious matters, 
especially in witchcraft," people were not to be put to death with- 
out approval of the Director General and his Council. 

John Baldwin w^as of the Milford people who first settled New- 
ark in 1666, when the fundamental laws were shown to be in 
accordance with Scripture by the marginal references. 

See as to this interesting Colony, Vol. 6, N. J. Hist. Soc. (Town 
Record of Newerk), and Supplement containing W. W. White- 
hall's oration. 



John, of Milford, Connecticat. 301 

John Baldwin was one of four who bought " The Neck," in 1674, 
for which tliey were to pay the town £310. lie was a shoemaker. 
He was, in 1G79, a "sealer of leather." Jan. 1, 1682-'83, he was 
chosen at town meeting "to look that the Young People carry 
themselves orderly in times of Divine Worship." In 1678, "After 
lecture," it was voted to send letters about the expenses of the 
Neck. His will, dated 1702, names his children Sarah, Hannah, 
Elizabeth and John, by his 1** wife, and Samuel, Daniel, Joseph, 
Timothy, Elnathan, Nathaniel and Jonathan. Mr. Cougar infers 
from their ages not all children of Ruth. Likely Samuel was sou 
of 1** wife.

His adminisratrix seems to have been his widow Mercy, yet she

founded? 

5. NATHANIEL-^ John,ibapt. in Milford, Conn., March 22, 
1648, and probably b. in 1647 or 1648. He was Nathaniel Cooper, 
of Milford, as Cooper had a division of land in 1677. He was in 
the lists of 1686 and 1712. Mr. Lambert says he removed, in 
1702, to "Cohansee;" and in 1704, Obadiah and Eichard speak of 
him as their brother, and gone to live there; but he soon after 
returned, as in 1705, ond several years after, he and Obadiah are 
for several years grave-diggers, their brother Richard being Sex- 
ton. In 1676, he drew a lot on the west side of Milford Kun. 
Aug. 31, 1717, his son Joseph is called s. of N. Cooper, lately of 
Milford, meaning, I presume, that Nathaniel was dead. In 1732, 
his son Nathaniel is called s. of "Left. N. B., deceased, distin- 
guished by being called Cooper. Nathaniel re.sided for a time in 
Stratford, where some of his children were for a time. His wife 
Sarah was admitted to Milford Church in October, 1681 ; he, July 
16,1682. She was no doubt Sarah, born about 1652 or 1653, dau. 
of Benjamin- and Wilmot his wife — David Phippen.^ She was 
born in Boston ; and as appears by the Boston records, she and her 
husband joined, July 4, 1697, in a deed, with her sister Sarah, 
w. of Benjamin Sherman, of Stratford, and Mary, w. of Nathaniel 
Sherman, of Stratford, and their husbands. 

85. Nathaniel, b. Sept. 6, 1676. Nov. 8, 1732, he makes the deed last men- 
tioned. He d. July 5, 1748, and adm. was granted July 13, 1748, to his nephew 
Jacob, bond £1,000, and his estate went to Samuel or his heirs, to Benjamin or his 
heirs, to Elizabeth, wife of Caleb Galpin, and to the estate of Joseph ; showing that 
he left at death no ch. Yet I find no other Nathaniel to have had dau. Mar3% b. 
July 12, 1714; Nathaniel, Jrme 13, 1715; Nathaniel again, Dec. 12, 171 «, although 
I have searched much. Perhaps they were ch. of tliLs Nathaniel, and d. y.

m. Elizabeth Botsford, dau. of Elnathan Botsford, of Milford, 
who survived him. He joined the Church in 1691, and was 
excommunicated in 1692. I am afraid, from that to 1695, he fell 
somewhat from grace. Alarch 13, 1719, then of Xew Haven, he 
deeds to his sons Joseph and Ephraim. His nuncupative will 
was proved the same year by the oath of Elizabeth Baldwin, Sen.

Abigail was received to the Church there June 22, 1701, and was 
living, in 1741, to release dower. Obadiah in 1696, in the division 
with his brother Richard, has lands near Dreadful Swamp near 
Indian Hill, and New Meadow near Stratford river. He appears 
in Milford laud records to Feb. 27, 173i, but was dead by 173^.

Cemetery), and without issue, as appears by a deed Sept. 29, 1740. from his sisteis 
to Lazarus and Isaiah Gun,* for a consideration received from their father, 
Daniel Gun. , 



* The grantees in this deed were victims of the stern parental authority of old times. When young 

men, they visited "their girls" one Saturday night, and were severeh' whipped by their father on the 

following Monday, which shamed them so much that they withdrew from all company, and died unmarried. 

(Lambert Hist. New Haven Colony.) Their father seems to have granted them after kindness, possibly 

hearty regret of his former severity.

ant to liud the identity of this Samuel established, who died Jan. 
8, 173|, by the statement on his tombstone, in Milford, that he 
died in his 63d year. Some of the descendants of this Samuel 
make him son of Daniel^ Nathaniel,^ the one b. Dec. 26, 1673; but 
that Samuel was bapt, the same month, and iu the Church Record, 
it appears he died March 26, 1674, and Daniel had another Samuel 
bapt. March 6, 1684. He was, after 1711, Samuel, Sen. He was a 
wheelwright. He m. Eebecca Wilkinson,- b.l676,dau. of Edward ^

He was a blacksmith (1722) of Killingworth. He conveyed to

of the proprietors of Durham, Conn. He seems to have been 
there for a short time, as, in 1710, he and his w. of Durham join 
with Saufords aud others in convejing land in Milford. It would 
appear from this deed that he m. Sarah Sanford,^ b. 1682, dau. of 
Samuel,- of Milford, s. of Thomas Sanford.^ He does not continue 
to appear in Durham, and I think he retui-ned to Milford,' and, 
perhaps m. 2'"^ time, Hester, and had ch., the name of only one of

Jan. 19, 1761, the Selectmen of Milford make an indenture with

"her master and mistress shall faithfully serve, their secrets keep, 
their lawful commands gladly obey; to them she shall do no 
damage, nor see it done by others ; nor play at unlawful games, 
nor absent herself from Servis ; but in all things behave herself as 
a faithful prentice ought to do." Wooster was bound to teach her 
to "read, knit, spin and sow, and all manner of work, business or 
learning, both of Religion and common business proper for such 
an apprentice." He was also bound to support her, and at the 
end of the term (ten years) furnish her two suits of apparel, 
"linnen and w^oollen, for all parts of her body suitable for her, 
and one good winter gown more, and a Bible."

son Jacob, widow being under conservator, by order of Court. 
Nov. 2, 1716, as Joseph, Junior, with his wife Hannah, he deeds 
to Samuel, Senior, the other Joseph being his uncle. It appears, 
from a deed made by him in 1718, that he was, like his father, a 
cooper.

members of the Society of Amity, and d. there, Jan. 21, 1764, and 
aged 75, as appears by his tombstone, in Woodbridge, Conn. This 
would seem to fix his identity. With the perverseness which 
belonged to his brothers, he left few records of his family history.

His will, dated Marcli 28, 1763, says that having before given his 
older children what he was capable of giving them, he now gives 
to his five younger children : Jabez, Levi, Rebecca, Eli and Joseph. 
He was Samuel, Sen., of Amity, in 1742, the other being Samuel * 
Samuel^ Josiah - John.^ He was likely the Samuel who, in 1722, 
received from his cousin, of Killingworth (Josiah), a deed of his 
rights in the Indian Purchase. I think he must be the Samuel 
who had, as per ISTew Haven Record: 

137. Anue, b. Nov. 29, 1736. 

138. Abigail, b. April 6, 1788. 

[Of whom Abigail may be one of the other children.] 

139. Jabez, living in 1763. 

140. Levi, living in 1763. 

[Hereafter, in this volume, will be found a Levi from Connecti- 
cut, to Vermont and Canada, who not unlikely was this one.] 

141. Rebecca, m., Oct. 16, 1764, Ricliard Speriy, of that part of Woodbridge, 
Coun., tlicn New Haven; slie was his 2nJ wife, the 1st being Abigail, dau. of Capt. 
Joel Northrup, m. Dec. 9, 1755, and d. May 23, 1764. Richard was, in 1755, called 
Jr. ; (400) Richard, b. Aug. 17, 1765.

145. Eli, bapt. Jan. 17, 1748. In 1773 was of New Haven, no doubt that part of 
Woodbridj;;e then New Haven. He must have been, I think, the Eli of Bethlehem, 
Conn., estate (1794) letters to Samuel. He left a wife, Doroth}-, and ch. : (401) 
Samuel, (402) Rebeckah, (403) Lucy, m. May 28, 1805, C. Minor; (404) Jabez, (405) 

Darius, (406) Aaron. Is it his widow who, as "widow B ," d. February, 1824, 

aged 74?

147. Joseph, bapt. March 8, 1752. In 1773 of Milford; d. in Bethlehem, Conn., 
Jan. 21, 1811, aged 59. His w. was received into the church there. May 6, 1792; d. 
there Jan., 1820, aged 69. Her estate in Woodbury Probate District went to (407) 
Leonard, (408) Keziali Benedict. 

March 1, 1773, the Sperrys, Eli and Joseph, convey to Joseph 
Beecher, having apparently waited for Joseph to be of age. Levi 
was executor of Joseph. Farther on in this volume will be found 
a query whether one of the older children was not Matthew.

had an ear mark given him in New Haven, and had with Ephraim 
a deed from his father of land in Milford. He had his father's 
moveable estate. I do not know what became of him after. A 
Joseph, whom I cannot place, appeared in Saybrook, Conn., 
where he and his w. Sarah owned the covenant, 1740; had c-h. : 

151. Elisha, bapt. Aug. 24, 1742, d. Dec. 16, 1742. 
153. Sarah, bapt. July 8, 1744. 

153. Joseph, bapt. Juue 14, 1746. I thought at one time he might be Joseph, 
of Southbury; but I conclude J., of Southbury, to be Josephs Joseph- William. i 
of Stratford. 

44. EPHRAIM^ Joseph^ John,ib. in Milford, Conn. He has 
a deed from his father in 1719, and ear-mark in 1720. His father 
died in 1719. He and Joseph were to maintain his mother by his 
father's nuncupative will. I think he Avas Ephraim, of Bethlehem 
Conn.; d. Feb. 10, 1796, aged 95, and father of 

154. Ephraim, Jr., of Woodbury, whose estate in 1777 as Ephraim, Jr., went to

"His oftlce made the Church his care; 
Her interest was his daily prayer ; 
In holy fear his days were led ; 
By faith he lived, in faith he died. 

Rest here, dear dust, till Jesus comes, and claims His favorite from the tomb.' 
His funeral sermon lies before me, (Newark, 1816,) by his pastor, James Richards, 
D.D., from the text: "Our friend Lazarus sleepeth."

With wisdom, faith and jvistice, truly great." 

* John Congar, in 1670, sold a meadow, and "he did deliver a twig and turf ol the same, declaring that 
he delivered that part in relation to the whole." I remember to have seen early instances of such passing 
of property in Connecticut, and am sorry I carmot tell where. This carries us back to the old forms of 
early law.

Dec. 5, 1728 ; m. Capt. Stephen Stow,^ of Milford. He was b. in 
Middletown, Conn., May 22, 1726, s. Deacon Samuel* and Esther 
(Mould) Stow. Esther Mould was dan. Hugh. Deacon Samuel * 
Stow was s. Thomas ^ and Bethia (Stocking) Stow, s. Thomas - and 
Mary (Cragg) Stow, from Roxbury, Mass., to Middletown, s. 
John^ and Elizabeth (Bigg) Stow, who came, in 1634, from Kent, 
England. Capt. Stephen was a mariner. He settled in Milford 
about 1750. His will, dated Jan. 27, 1777, gives the use of his 
estate to his widow until his youngest child is of age ; to Stephen, 
all his money and debt from Capt. Miles ; to son Jedidah, a watch 
and Gillette lot, and all the money he has or shall earn in the 
service of the United States. He d. Feb. 8, 1777, just twelve 
days after making the will, as follows: Jan. 1, 1777, a British 
Cartel ship landed at Milford two hundred sick soldiers from the 
Sugar House and Ship Prisons of New York. These miserable 
victims of inhuman incarceration were suffering with small-pox 
and other loathsome diseases ; and it was difficult, in those days 
of dreaded small-pox, to get nurses. Our hero volunteered for 
this service, and died of the disease. A soldiers' monument stands 
in Milford, erected to the forty-six soldiers, who died in Milford 
during January, 1777; and in 1872, the Legislature of Connecticut

resolved to have placed, on one side of this monument, an inscrip- 
tion to Mr. Stow. An inscription was selected, composed by 
George F. Tattle, one of his descendants, but in 1875 the fnnds 
had not been collected to cut it.

The second volume of the Publications of the New Haven Colo- 
nial Historical Society, in an article by Thomas R. Trowbridge, Jr., 
gives the following sketch : 

"The house which has the reputation of being the most ancient 
in Milford, is the one known as the ' Stowe house,' standing on 
Wharf street, near the harbor. It was built at least as early as 
1689, of medium size, two stories, with a high garret, covered with 
a gable roof, and, as usual with houses of that period, it has a 
heavy oaken frame, and is so compactly put together that there is 
no reason why it should not stand many years to come. In this 
house lived, during the Revolutionary War, that sterling patriot, 
Stepheu Stow. 

" In December, 1776, shortly before night, there appeared off 
the harbor of Milford a British vessel, carrying at her foretop 'a 
iiag of truce.' Darkness increasing, she was not again seen. Near 
to the beach was the house of Capt. Isaac Miles (also an earnest 
patriot), who with his sons sitting before his fire, hearing unusual 
noises outside, opened the doors and found the yard tilled with a 
large number of wild, forlorn-looking creatures, in most deplorable 
condition, and suffering for want of food and clothing. 

" On that bitter winter night, they had been turned ashore, and 
left on the beach to shift for themselves. The sympathies of the 
Miles family and neighbors sheltered these released American 
prisoners for the night. In a day or two, they were removed to 
the Town Hall, which was prepared for them. In this building 
(still standing), the work of death at once commenced among 
these unfortunate men, who, stricken with fever, were so reduced

in strength that they easily fell victims to its virulence. Here it 
■was that the heroic work of Stephen Stow was done. Day and 
night his faithful ministrations to the sick and dying, and his 
unceasing, constant care of these men, was his sole occupation, 
till, becoming physically exhausted, he contracted the fever and 
fell a victim in his work of kindness, leaving a name to most 
should rank with John Howard's, who a little later gave up his 
life among the hospitals of Russia.*

* Barber's History of the Colony of Connecticut contains, from the "Connecticut Gazette" the following 
statement : 

Derby, February ISth, 1764. 

On the evening- of the 7th, there was a violent storm of hail and rain. The next morning after was ob- 
served a large breach in a hill on the west side of the old ri\'er, supposed to be occasioned by some subterra- 
nean wind or fire. "The breach was said to be twenty feet deep and one hundred thirteen long, and about 
sixty rods of land covered with the gravel and sand. Four trees, of one foot diameter, were carried one 
hundred and seventy -three feet, and supposed to be forced up forty feet. Some small stones stuck fast in a 
green tree." "A large, dry log, better than ten feet in diameter, was carried up so far in the air, that by 
the forceof the fall ene end of it stuck so fast in the ground that it kept the other end up. Tlie narrowest 
part of the breach is about thirt3" feet at the surface of the ground ; and the bottom of the breach is 
crooking, winding much like the streaks of lightning. The above account was taken by exact rule by ua."

364 Baldwin Genealogy. 

of the ablest Judges ever on that bench, and a man of great purity 
and generosity of character. He was also an eloquent advocate. 
He established, in 1839, a Law School in Staunton, which he 
conducted for several years with much success. His Lectures, 
comprising the whole body of common, statute and equity law, 
still exist in Mss. They were highly prized by his students, and 
he was often solicited to publish them. He was for many year's 
Presiding Judge of the Court of Appeals, and has been widely 
known through his masterly expositions of law contained in 
Grattan's Reports. He died May, 1862; his widow died January, 
1870.

a graduate of the University of Virginia. At twenty-one, he commenced the practice 
of law in Staunton, Va., as partner of his brother-in-law, Hon. 'A. H. H. Stuai't. 
He soon achieved eminence as a law3-er and political debater. As soon as eligible 
by age, he became a Member of the House, aud of marked ability in del)ate. He was 
opposed to Secession; and in 1860, in favor of Bell and Everett, he commenced the 
canvas in Richmond. The Richmond papers characterized the speech as a " mas- 
terly and extraordinary effort." In the State Convention of 1861, he displayed 
"transcendant ability ■" in oppo.sition to Secession. He visited President Lincoln 
in behalf of the Union members. Secession being determined upon, he supported 
his State. He became Inspector General; then Colonel of the 52nd Va. Reg. ; then 
Member of the Confederate Congress. The debates of that body were .secret, but 
Baldwin is understood to have maintained his reputation. His speech against the 
suspension of Habeas Corj^us has often been described as one of the noblest 
defences of liberty ever pronounced in this coiuitry. After Lee's surrender, he 
took part in what is believed to have been the first meeting for the re-establishment 
of the government. He was Speaker of the next House of Delegates. He was 
afterward of marked influence in Conventions; and President of one, which, 
although he deeliued, nearly nominated him as Govei'nor. Although bold in his 
course, he seems to have been regarded with extraordinary affection bj- the people 
of Virginia, as " sans jieur et suns rep roclie."

"THE LATE COL. BURR PORTER. 

"On the mournfully long list of soldiers slain while fighting for the glory and 
honor of France, there is the name of an American, a soldier of taste, and it might 
also be said bj' profession, whose memorj" is very dear to a circle as large and influ- 
ential as ever greeted a genial gentleman. 

"During the retreat of the intrepid Bourbaki, toward the Swiss frontier. Col. 
Burr Porter, of Newark, N. J., who was serving as a staff officer, was shot in the 
breast while leading his command in a skirmish with the Prussians, shouting, but 
a few moments before being struck, while his sword described a circle over his 
head: 'I will show you how we fight in America!' His body was removed to the 
residence of the cure of the village, and, after being viewed by his brother officers, 
was interred with all the impressive ceremonies of the French army. 

"Col. Porter was a son of the Rev. Burr Baldwin, formerly Principal of the 
old Newark Academy, and when four years of age, was adopted b}' his uncle, 
P. H. Porter. Esq., with wliom he always lived. He pursued his scholastic educa- 
tion at Rutger's College, graduating in 1849. with the highest honors. 

"During the Crimean war, he went to Turkej' and was attached to Omar 
Pasha's Staff, and subsequently was made a "Bashaw," or Colonel of a regiment of 
Arabs. Here his braver}^ and natural military tact were put to severe tests. His 
command was an important one, and its duties developed the fine soldierly qualities 
of his nature. The best evidence of the high appreciatioa in which he was held 
b}' Omar Pasha, were the brilliant decorations conferred upon him, which literally 
covered his breast. After leaving Turkey, he spent several years in Paris and

Vienna, studying military engineering. Returning to America, lac resumed the 
legal profession till the outbreak of the civil war, when he became attached to 
Maj. Gen. Fremont's Staff, and served with him in Virginia until after the battle of 
Cross Keys. Upon the relief of Gen. Fremont, Col. Porter went to Massachusetts, 
where he had intimate personal relations with Gov. Andrew, who offered him his 
choice of ten regiments then forming at Readville, under the call of 1862. Accept- 
ing the Fortieth, he served with credit, and subsequently was transferred to the 
Third Massachusetts Cavalry, in which he remained until the close of the war. 

' ' Little can here be added to the testimony of the daily press, in praise of his 
important services, his rare intelligence, his genial disposition, and his elevated 
literary tastes. He was in very truth a representative American, progressive and 
liberal in his opinions, steadfast as a friend, and sensitive to a high degree. His 
writings were always seasonable in subject, and attractive in style, exhibiting a 
thoroughness of study, contideuce of expression, and clearness of description. 

"His affection for the French amounted to an enthusiasm, which disasters only 
increased, while he frequently expressed his expectations of the heroic fate that 
deprived France of a soldier as honest, and the world of a man as pure as ever 
lived. He left a wife, the daughter of Oliver Ditson, Esq., and one child."

' >Ir. Baldwin had extracts from the records of Aston Clinton, and it was partly in supposed support of 
his \ie\vs, as ditt'ering- from those of Mr. Savage (whose Mss. he had), that I conunenced the English 
investigation, which showed the Sylvester emigrant was not the son of Richard, as said Mr. Savage, or of 
Thomas, as said Mr. Baldwin, but of Sylvester. Mr. Isaac Palmer Baldwin deduced his own genealogy as 
follows: Eli(6), Matthew(5). Caleb(4), Saniuel(3), Daniel(2). Nathaniel (1). I have several times had 
occasion to differ from descendants in the early lines. This arises from the fact, that there were many 
cases in Milford of several of the sams name. I found it necessary to trace every line in full to identify 
them.

Timothy Baldwin, of Milford, Connecticut, 



AND HIS DESCENDANTS. 



1. TIMOTHY BALDWIN, of Milford, Conn., one of the lirst 
settlers, in 1639 ; joined the Church there in 1643, with Mary his 
wife, who died July 31, 1647. In 1640, " Itt is ordered (New 
Haven Colonial Records), that Tynio. Baldwin's lott shall have 
land laid to itt for 6 heads, and 500 I, and reserved for an elder." 
This was ordered, 1644-5, to be bought in by the tow^n. He was 
the eldest son of Eichard Baldwin, of Cholesbury, Buckingham- 
shire, England, whose will was made in 1633, and Timothy was 
executor. An account of Richard, and copy of the will, will be 
found in the early part of this volume, under Richard- Richard^- 
of Bucks county. That he was a brother of Nathaniel, appears 
from an entry from the long, narrow book of Milford Records, 
transcribed in 1700 by Richard Bryan, b}' order of the town. In 
this, it appears (page 118), "12 Dec, 1649, Timothy Baldwin 
bought of his brother Nathaniel one parcel of land." Timothy 
lived for a while in Guilford, Conn., about 1650, having married, 
March 5, 1645, Mary Mepham, widow of John, of Guilford. She 
was a relative of Gov. Fen wick, who married Frances Appleby, 
daughter of Sir Edward. About 1651 or 1652, they sold the 
Mepham property, and moved back to Milford. Her son John 
Mepham moved to Southampton, Long Island. She joined the 
Church in Milford, December, 1653. He died the night following 
Jan. 17, 1664. His widow then married Thomas Tapping, of 
Milford, the contract for the marriage being made Oct. 20, 1666. 
Tapping was a leading man. Captain, Representative and Assist- 
ant, who survived her and married, in 1678, a third wife, as she 



404 Baldwin Genealogy. 

had a third husband. It does not appear that she had any chil- 
dren by Tapping. Savage says, John Mepham was remembered 
in Timoth3'"s will. In 1656, he was witness to the will of Rev. 
Peter Prudden, of Milford. Timothy Baldwin's homestead was 
on the west side of Milford Main street, just south of where the 
IS". Y. & N. H. R. R. crosses the trestle work.

The account generally given of this Timothy has ended here, 
leavino- out Billinfi:. 

After considerable search of the Milford Records, I have been 
nuable to clear up satisfactorily the history. Timothy had aright 
in iSTew Milford, and in 1706, among the proprietors there was 
Billing, in the right of her father, Serg't Timothy, late of Milford, 
deceased. Jan. 19, 1719, (Milford Records C, page 74,) Billing 
Baldwin conveys to her brother-in-law, Samuel Camp, a tract or 
parcel of land, " formerly my honored father, Timothy Baldwin, 



Timothi/, of 3Iilfor(l, Connecticut. 405 

late of Milford," and since his death set to her. The same year 
she conveys to Xathaniel Fenn one-third of the right of her father 
in certain lands, looking as if she might be only one of three heirs. 
Samuel Camp, Jane 17, 1708, makes conveyances to his brothers, 
Daniel Baldwin (probably Daniel,- XathanieP) and Joseph Camp. 
If Timothy left a third heir, I do not think it was a son, as, after 
thorough and repeated search among all the early Baldwins of 
Connecticut, I find no male who could be heir of this Timothy. 
There mav have been a third daughter, whose identitv mav bo 
concealed by marriage. Perseverance in the Milford Keeord of 
deeds would likely disclose. In October, 1703, the General Court 
at Hartford appointed "Sergeant Timothie Baldwin "" one of the 
committee "for the regulation of the township purchased by the 
inhabitants of Milford, lying at Wiautonuck, they bearing the 
charges." A patent was just before provided for the town, to be 
named " Xew Milford." In October, 1(398, Sergeant Samuel Camp, 
was appointed Lieutenant of the 2nd Company in Milford. In 
1716, Samuel Camp was a proprietor of Durham. 



Nathaniel Baldwin, of M^lford, Connecticut, 



AND HIS DESCENDANTS. 



1. NATHANIEL BALDWHLN" was one of the first settlers of 
Milford, where he was a free planter," Nov. 29, 1639. He was 
probably the brother of Joseph, and was certainly the brother of 
Timothy, as, in 1650, he conveys land to his brother Timothy. 
(Milford Records.) The three settled in Milford together. I place 
Nathaniel second in the list beeanse such was the apparent order 
of ages of the children. Nathaniel was a cooper, and removed to 
Fairfield; he was there in 1641. He married Abigail Camp, who 
joined the Church at Milford, June 9, 161:4, and died there, 
March 22, 1648. He had children by her. 

3. .John, bapt. .June, 1644.-1- 

3. Daniel, bapt. June, 1644.-1- 

4. Nathaniel, bapt. January, 1645.-1- 

5. Abigail, bapt. March 19, 1648, and d., say.s Dr. Talcott, in 1668. 

He married 2"'"' Joanna Westcoat, widow of Richard, of Fair- 
field, Conn., and moved there, perhaps the second time. By her 
he had children. 

6. Sarah, 1). 1650. 

7. Deborah, b. 16.->2. 

8. Samuel, b. 1655.-1- 

Thus had I written before the report of Mr. Chester, from 
England, which leaves no reasonable doubt that Nathaniel was 
the second son of Richard, of Parish Cholesbury, Buckingham- 
shire, England, and brother of Timothy and Joseph. (See the 
discussion of the English part of this genealogy, under Richard^' 
of Bucks county, Richard.^ Ante page 23.) 



Sathanid, of 3Iilford, Connecticut. 407 

He died in 1G50, and the Proloate of his estate appears in Fair- 
tield. It is given to his ehlest son John, a donble share; to the 
three children of his last wife, eqnal to each other; and the chil- 
dren of the former wife, now living at Milford, are to have a share 
equal to the three. Mr. Savage, in his Genealogical Dictionary, 
makes his widow marry Thomas Skidmore ; but Mr. Byron A. 
Baldwin, a careful genealogist, descended of this line, states that 
she made a contract with Skidmore in res-ard to marriag-e, which 
was recorded, but did not marry him. She married S""^- George 
Abbott, of Fairfield, and died in 1682. Mrs. Baldwin, or " Good- 
w^ife Baldwin," was a witness in 1654, in so curious a lawsuit that 
I will mention it. "Knapp's wife" had been executed as a witch 
In Fairtield, and Roger Ludlow, of that town, had reported to 
Rev. John Davenport and others that Goodwife Staplies was a 
witch, and so reported by Mrs. Knajjp before her execution. 
Ludlow was a man of note, choseu Assistant in London, of Massa- 
chusetts Colony; in 1634, Deputy Governor of Connecticut ; from 
1651 to 1653, Commissioner of the United Colonies. Thomas 
Staphes, the husband, with courage sued Ludlow for the slander, 
and the case appears in full in the New Haven Colonial Records. 
Davenport had thought his letter testimony enough, but Ludlow 
requiring an oath, so Davenport " lookes at an oath in case of 
necessity for confirmation of truth, to end strife amoung men, as 
an ordinance of God, according to Heb. 6: 16; he thereupon 
declares as followeth." Thomas Shermington and Christopher 
Comstock and Goodwife Baldwin were all tot^ether at the Minor 
house, where Goodwife Knapp was ; and y'' said Goodwife Bald- 
win asked her whether she, the said Knapp, knew if any other 
(witch), and she said there were some or one that had received 
Lidian Gods, that were very bright. The said Baldwin asked her 
how she could tell, if she were not a witch hereself ; and she said 
the party told her so, and her husband was witness to it; and to 
this they were all sworn and doe depose." It appeared, by another 
witness, that Goodwife Baldwin then, in Knapp's prison, had said 
Knapp told her there was a woman in who would ' X'anged 

for a witch and clear the p^^'" -r^-a^ ~ the 

woman had told Knap] \:

408 Baldwin Genealogy. 

Goodwife Staplies Avas the one, and received the shining Gods ; 
and the Indian told her, if she would keep them, she should be 
so big rich, all one God." In justice to Goody Staplies, it should 
perhaps be said, that Knapp admitted Staplies said she had given 
them back. The Court at Xew Haven mulcted Ludlow ten pounds 
for the slander, and live for the plaintiffs' cost. Ludlow had already 
taken steps to go into Vriginia, in disgust, it is said ; perhaps not 
desiring longer to live where his efforts against the heinous sin 
of witchcraft were not appreciated. 

An unusual number of the descendants of Nathaniel have been 
eminent, and the family generally of high respectability, lum- 
bers of his descendants have made substantial progress in tracing 
this family, among whom I may mention the late Lewis M. 
Norton, of Goshen, Conn. Dr. Talcott, of Guilford, Conn., and 
Byron A. Baldwin, Esq., of Chicago. The latter gentleman printed 
in the "New England Historical and Genealogical Register," for 
April, 1871, a partial Genealogy, entitled "Nathaniel Baldwin and 
one Line of his Descendants." The late Hon. Ralph D. Smith, 
of Guilford, had procured from various sources a list of descend- 
ants second only to that of Dr. Talcott. Mr. Smith says Nathaniel 
went to Branford to live, but soon left.* 

2. JOHN -2 Nathaniel,^ bapt. at Milford in 1644; m. there, Nov. 
19, 1663, Hannah, dau. Richard Osborne. He removed to Newark, 
N. J., and was there known as John, Jun., the senior being John, 
son of John, Sen., of Milford. Mr. Savage says he had a son, 
born in Milford, in 1665, perhaps Richard. There were so many 
Johns in Milford, (John,^ Sen.; John,"^ his son ; John,^ son of Na- 
thaniel ; John,^ brother of Richard, and John,Mn8 cousin,) that 
it is much easier to tell what children were left by the Johns, than 
with certainty what children they may have had die young. This 
John, or John, Jun., made his will, dated Dec. 25, 1688, at Newark, 
in the Government of New England, and Avhich remembers his 
son John, and dau., Hannah Ticheuor.

He made his uncle William Camp and Setli Tompkins overseers

the proof. 

4. NATHANIEL ^ Nathaniel,^ b. Jan. 2, 1645, in Milford ; bapt. 
in 1646. The Nathaniels of the second and third generations, in 
Milford, are more difficult to trace satisfactorily than any other 
name, and I have spent more time upon them. This Nathaniel 
was a weaver, and married, March 12, 167^, Hannah, dau. Henry 
Botchford, of Milford, sister to the wife of his brother Daniel. 
There was a second Nathaniel, cooper, who was the son of John, 
Sen.; but that Nathaniel, son of Nathaniel, was the weaver, ap- 
pears from the fact that Nathaniel, weaver, was also senior. He 
is supposed by some, among others the late R. D. Smith, to be the 
one said to have been killed in the Swamp fight of 1675. All 
agree that he married, as stated above, and was a weaver; yet, 
April 12, 1678, Henry Botchford conveys to his son-in-law, Na- 
thaniel, Sen. — and in the ancient book of deeds of Milford it is 
indexed to Nathaniel, weaver — a deed, May 20, 1678, to Nathaniel ; 
June 20, 1678, to Nathaniel, Sen.; and May 20, 1678, to Nathaniel, 
Sen., son-in-law to Henrv Botchford. He was made freeman in 
1671. His father-in-law made a will, dated July 1, 1685, remem- 
bering his "son-in-law, Nathaniel Baldwin, and the four children

I had given him a child, Samuel, b. Jan. 14, 168|, but he must 
have been the son of Nathaniel, cooper, as shown by sharing part 
of his estate, and age at death. In the list of 1686, our Nathaniel, 
as weaver, has £87; in 1712, as senior, he has £74 14s.; Jan. 22, 1676, 
he draws, as Nathaniel, a lot next to the Common, on the east side 
line fence, while Nathaniel, Jun., draws on the west side. In 1697, 
he is Surveyor. April 25, 1692, as weaver, he received a deed 
from Nathaniel, cooper. April 11, 1709, Samuel Sanford conveys 
to bis father, Nathaniel Baldwin, indexed to weaver; and January, 
1710, Nathaniel Baldwin, Sen., conveys to his son-in-law, Samuel 
Sanford, of Milford ; and in 1713, like deeds appear. His will, 
dated June 8, 1714, proved in New Haven Probate, June 22, 1714, 
gives to his present wife Elizabeth, which must be at least his

Samuel Sanford, of Newtown; to his son Samuel Sanford, of Mi^

seemed sit first like a mistake ; but I subsequently found, in 
Milford Records, a deed from one to the other. 

8. SAMUEL-^ Nathaniel,! b. in Fairfield, Conn., 1G55 ; m. Abi- 
gail, b. Xov. 16, 1658, dau. John Baldwin, Sen., of Milford. He 
was a blacksmith, and was invited from Fairfield to Guilford, in 
1675, by a vote of the town of Guilford,* "to work upon his trade 
of smithing, upon trial "' The trade was then in high repute, as 
many Town Records show. I have met with numbers of instances 
of similar solicitation, of wealth acquired, and positions of honor 
filled by the "smith." The present one no doubt proved satisfac- 
tory upon trial, as he continued to reside in Guilford, accumulating 
a handsome property, and raising a hirge family to be prosperous 
and well married. We shall see that his grandson, a blacksmith, 
numbered among his children a Senator of the United States and 
Governor of Georgia, a Judge of the Supreme Court of the United 
States and the first Speaker of the Plouse in Ohio, while the daugh- 
ters were equally well mated. 

The town of Guilford granted him, July 15, 1676, half an acre 
upon the Green, opposite John Bishop's house, for his shop, "for 
his encouragement and accommodation of his trade," with the 
promise that if he left, it should return to the town, they paying 
for buildings, fences and orchard. lie died Jan. 12, 1696. The 
distribution was to his widow and eldest son, and to each of the 
others, being five in number.

■ Rev. Lyman Beecher alludes to this in his Autobiography. He thinks the Guilford setClers were gen- 
tlemen, "and not a merchant or inechanic among- them; and it was with much trouble and expense that 
the.v secured even a blacksmith." The trade of blacksmith was then \ery honorable; and no dojbt much 
more jjolitics of Church and State were discussed and settled at the village blacksmith shjp than on 
a farm.

1738, and in that year was one of the Proprietors" Committee for 
laying out the town. At the first Town Meeting, Dec. 6, 1739, he

which made them relatives. Goshen had no Representatives until 
1757; he was Representative in 1759 and 1760, the year of his 
death. He is said to have been unassuming in manners, a good 
citizen, and a meek and devoted Christian. His lands were in the

and by his own memoranda, found amoug his loose papers, it 
appears that his birth was two months after his father died, and four 
years before his mother died. Mr. Baldwin goes on to say : "After 
the death of the latter, I lived about two years with my uncle 
Harrison ; after this, I lived with Amos Ball, my mother's uncle, 
till I was fifteen years of age, when God in His Providence, was 
pleased to remove him by death. After this, I put myself to learn 
a trade, which I pursued until I was nineteen years of age, when 
God gave me a greater sense of my lost state, and of the impor- 
tance of salvation than I had ever yet had. Upon this being, I 
resolved to seek God till I found Him through all." Here the 
writing ends. But Moses went to Princeton, being a graduate of 
the first class, 1757. He became a Presbyterian clergyman, and 
settled in Palmer, Mass., in 1761. He was invited, 1760, from 
Southold, L. I., on trial. He was thought to be not more than 
"half a Presbyterian," and there was some objection to his instal- 
lation on that account; but it took place June 17, 1761, and he 
remained minister of that Church until June 19, 1811. He con- 
tinued afterward in Palmer, and d. Nov. 2, 1813. He was a plain 
preacher, struggling hard with a poorly-paid salary. He had at 
the outset sixty pounds, and he bought of the town, for one hun- 
dred and fifty pounds, a farm of one hundred and fifty acres, "set 
apart for the ministers lot." He m. Rebecca Lee, b. March 10,

77. MICHAEL* Timothy ^ Samuel,^ b. in Guilford, Conn., April 
2, 1719. His father owning land in Goshen, Conn., he went there 
to "settle his father's rights," by which is to be understood such 
settlement or use of the land as was necessary to prevent the 
lapsing of the grant. This caution doubtless did much to encour- 
age the surprising migration of earl}' times in Connecticut; and 
this book has repeated instances of settlements, sometimes not 
permanent, no doubt induced by this species of homestead law. 
Bj'ron A. Baldwin informs me that three years was necessary to 
this settlement. He returned before July 9, 1743, to Guilford. 
The lands of Timothy, thus settled, came afterward mostly to his 
son Stephen. He m. I''*' Dec. 7, 1749, Lucy Dudley, dau. "William 
and Kuth (Strong) Dudley, of Guilford ; she was b. March 29,

W^olcot, b. Nov. 4, 1746, dau. Josiah and Ruth (White) Wolcot, 
of Coventry, Conn. He removed to New Haven as early as 1775, 
to educate h\-. family. Judge Simeon Bildwin said he was a man'^ 
of " powerful, but uncultivated mind." He seems to have wished 
his children to be cultivated ; and it is seldom a man has such a 
family, of whom one Avas L^nited States Senator and Governor, one 
Judge of the United States Supreme Court, one speaker of the 
House in Ohio ; one daughter married Joel Barlow, and one Col. 
Bomford. The other children were highly respectable. He was 
a blacksmith, and a highly-respected descendant tells us that they 
are proud of the trade. This feeling, of the dignity of labor, is 
pleasing. 

Michael died in 1787 ; adm., Oct. 12, 1787, to his sods Dudley 
and Abraham. At the invasion of New Haven, during the Revo- 
lutionary war, his house was on George street, facing College 
street. It is said to have been protected by a British officer in 
the expedition, who had been a paroled prisoner in the latest 
French war, and had in some way found a temporary home at

He studied law, settled in Savannah, Ga., and was soon after a Member of the 
Legislature. He planned the University of Georgia, drew the Charter, got it 
adopted, and was for a while its President. He was a Member of the Continental 
Congress from 1785 to 1788, and a Member of the Unitjd States Constitutional Con- 
vention. From 1789 to 1799, he was a Representative in Congress; and from 1799 
to 1807, United States Senator. He d. March 4, 1807, unm. 

169. Ruth, b. Sept. 13, 1756; m., Jan. 26, 1781, the famous Jo 'I Barlow. He 
wash. 1755, in Reading, Conn., youngest of ten children. His father determined 
to send him to College, but died, leaving him barely sufficient to pay the expense. 
In 1774, he entered Dartmouth, but soon removed to Yale, graduating in 1778, 
delivering at commencement a poem, called "The Prospect of Peace," which was 
quite popular. The army was composed largely of reliiiious men, and there was 
much demand for Chaplains, so he served in that capacitj'. At the close of the war, 
he retired from the army and ministry together, and resumed the study of law at 
Hartford. He soon after, with Mr. Babcock, founded the "Hartford Mercury" a 
brilliant sheet. His poetical reputation was then so high that the General Associa- 
tion applied to him to prepare for its use a Psalmody. Some of his versifications 
were of ^riat beauty. This was used till the one prepared by President Dwight; 
the main reason for the change, it is said, being the report that Barlow had become 
tinctured with French views. In 1787, the "Vision of Columbus" was published, 
and he gave his attention to literature, being a very leading member of the "Club 
of Hartford Wits." Its paper, "Tlie Anarchiad," had considerable influence toward 
our present constitution. Shortly after, he went abroad as agent, in England and 
France, of "The Scioto Land Company," which promised great things to him as 
well as others. The managers of the Company were dishonest, and Barlow with- 
drew still poor. He remained abroad (1789), gaining a scanty living by his pen, 
and at last a reputation abroad. In 1795, he had business in the North of Europe, 
and returning, found a commission to Algiers. He negotiated treaties with Algiers, 
Tripoli and Tunis, and liberated many poor American sufferers. In 1797, he 
returned to Paris, and engaged in commerce, gaining a large fortune. In 1805, he 
returned with his wife to America, and settled in Washington, on ample grounds, 
laid out with exquisite taste, and with a fine house. " Kalorama " was a noted spot. 
In 1808, he published "The Columbiad .'' In 1811, he became Minister to France. 
The "Berlin and Milan decree" gave much trouble to this country, and Barlow 
wanted to see Napoleon in person. In Octoljer, 1812, he was invited to meet 
him at Wilna, in Poland. The exposure caused his death, Dec. 22, 1812, at 
Zai'nawica, in Poland. He was very happy whh his wife, who was a person of 
superior intellect, amiable, dignified, yet easy and graceful, and of unusal beauty. 
;My sketch of Mr. Barlow is drawn from an elegant article by one of his wife's 
collateral relatives, (Rev. A. C. Baldwin, of Hartford,) in the "Netc Englander," 
for 1878. The writer has there a letter, written in 1796, by Mr. Barlow to his wife, 
from. Algiers, when he thought his life uncertain. The letter is much too long to 
quote here, but is a beautiful tribute, alike honorable to the husband and wife. It

displays the greatest love, respect and confidence, as well as an lionorable desire fur 
further li'ood, and trust in her to help in tliat. The letter is very touchin;:: in its 
sentiments. He gave her by his will all his i)roperty. She died ilay 30, 1818.

* In Lyman Beecher's Autobiographj", he is asked by Mrs. Stowe if there were any slaves in Nortli 
Guilford. He says: "Yes, a few: Darb, the fiddler, was a slave, belonged to old Mr. Ben. Rossitur. Darb 
came in one evening and played dancing- tunes after I was abed. Tiiere were about a dozen sla\es in North 
Guilford, bnt the slavery was very lenient. Old Priest Fowler's Moses was qyite the man of business; sent 
Johnny Fowler to College, and paid the bills, managed the farm, rang the church bell, and was factotum. 
He lived a slave because he was a king."

November, 1762. It must have been at least as late as 1760, as, 
after his decease, his will of that date (Litchfield Probate) describes 
him as of (iruilford, and Freelove as his only daughter. In 1782, 
however, Abigail shared in the distribution, and as Freelove did 
not, nor her heirs, she no doubt died without issue.

Mr. Baldwin's character is well illu.strated by an anecdote from 
Beecher's Autobiography. He says there was a Parish Meeting 
in North Guilford, to see about moving the school house; but 
they "quarreled and broke up in a row. It never would have 
been set straight if it hadn't been for an old neighbor, Tim Bald- 
win.'^ H. B. S. "Why what did he do ?" " Well, I'll tell you. Next 
morning, he said he wan't going to have any quarreling about that 
school house; so he yoked his oxen and Tim Rossitur's, and went 
down, and hitched on, 'whoa, haw Bright, gee up,' and dragged 
the school house along where he wanted it ; then he unhitched, 
and left it there, and there it stood; and when people found it 
was done, they stopped qnarreling."

He settled in Detroit, Mich., 1838. He has been a very pros- 
perous and widely-known merchant in Detroit. He has been 
President of the Second National Bank of Detroit since its begin- 
ning. He was for two years State Senator, and in 1869 and 1870 
Governor of Michigan, in which year he was re-elected for a second 
term. To this position, says the "Red Book" of Michigan, he 
brought a full store of general information, gathered from foreign 
travel and the study of men and books. He was a very popular 
Governor. His political career has been marked by high financial 
ability and excellent general sense. When he retired from the 
Governorship, in 1872, it was said that "in painstaking, vigilance, 
sterling good sense, genuine public spirit, thorough integrity and 
practical capacity, he had shown himself the peer of any of the 
illustrious Governors of the State." In I^ovember, 1879, he suc- 
ceeded the late Zachary Chandler as United States Senator from 
Michigan.

moved to Ohio, he went to Virginia, where, in his "Auto- Biographical Sketch,"' he 
says his brothers Joseph, Cyrus and Philemon had resided for many years, and were 
wealthy and higldy respected. He chose the profession of the law, and commenced 
practice in 1825, and soon after settled in Charleston, Kanawha county. He was 
an eloquent speaker, a close student, with a l)rilliant and acute mind, and in a few 
years had already accumulated a handsome property and a tine position. He was, 
says ^Ir. ilcComas, (M. C. from Virginia, 1835,) a popular counselor, an eloquent 
and able advocate, and a pleasant companion. He was an especial favorite with 
the people of Logan county, and therefore called the "Logan Chief." His tir^t 
printed production was a Fourth of July oration delivered in Winchester when he 
was twenty. In 1833, he was converted to the Methodist Church. He immediately 
gave up his profession and l)ecame a minister. He was an enthusiast, whose soul 
was in his work. He m. 1st, ^Ijss Elizal)eth Truslow, who d. soon after, leaving

long after, and m. 'd^d, March, 1837, Miss Ann Eliabeth Tavener. Their ch. were 
Charles Tavener and Thomas Tavener. His biographer says he loved each of his 
wives with a sincere, tender and pure love. He d. November, 1839. HisAvidow is 
living, 1875. The fourth edition of his biography was puljlished, 1874, in Cincinnati, 
Ohio, 314 pages, entitled "Conversion of a Skeptic, a Member of the Bar," by Kev. 
M. P. Gaddis, Sen. The volume shows strongly, the religious, ardent character 
of its subject, athou^h it is thought by his friends not to be properly ajipreciiitive 
in all respects. It is said that he was never properly a skeptic. 

Chai'les K., in hi.s "Autobiogi-apliical Sketches,"' says his mother 
"was a very piou.-^ woman and highly esteemed. His father was a 
farmer once in atliuent circumstances, but reduced by much sick- 
ness in his family and other circumstances. He exchanged, in 
1815, his farm for lands on Lake Erie, where he removed in 1817.
