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.

2"*^' Abigail Lay, of Lyme, in 1602, who was one of the first per-
sons who joined the Church in Norwich in 1700, after Mr. Wood-
ward was installed. A very interesting view of the church is in
Miss Caulkins' History of Norwich, page 129. He d. Sept. 16,
1741, in the 80th year of his age. He was a farmer, and his farm
lay, in 1687, "near Lebanon," then a name, but not a town. It
was distant three miles from the town plat, aiid is in present

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.

Marshfield, Mass. He resided in Norwich, and d. 1794. Although
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-
titude, he bore with singular philosophy the peculiar calamities
of his life during nine years of blindness and infirmity, and the
extreme pains of his hi'^t lingering sickness, in the sure hope of a
long-wished-for eternity of happiness."

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.

22. D A:N'IEL * John ^ John ^ John.i His father was b. 1687, and
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
