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
