in the matter of genealogy ; to no one more, save Dr. Talcott, of

judgment, and could have done this branch, had he undertaken it,
better than myself. He is the author of the article in the " iSTew

There is the following evidence that he was brother to ^Nathaniel
and Timothy :

The earliest records of Milford are not in existence, but the
"3rd book" contains a transcript of "the most necessary things
contained in the two former books," transcribed by Major Robert
Treat, and six others as Committee, Jan. 7, 1677, Samuel Eells
being appointed to do the writing.

In this transcribed book, Joseph Baldwin has, December, 1648,
a division adjoining Timothy Baldwin's half division. He also
has, in a transcription of the "long narrow book," in 1649, 4
acres, be it more or less, in the ISTew Meadow plain, bounded with
Timothy Baldwin west, with the common ]^. & E., and with AYm.
Fowlers E. (SI)

The transcription of the "long narrow book" was made Decem-
ber y« 23, 1700, by Richard Bryan. Ap'l 24t'>' 1054, he hath liberty
granted him "for to exchange and lay down one piece of land,
and take up another for it, in the New Meadow Plain next his
brothers' land, that he formerly laid down to the town again."

On the 13*^ Dec, of the same year, he "having formerly made
writing to y^ Court, & now reviews it againe for liberty to exchange
that land of his, or some part of it that lieth near to his brother,
to take it up next unto him, for his ease in sending, which was
2:ranted unto him."

The homestead of Joseph was on lot 52, ou "West Farm street
opposite, joining rears or nearly so, with the homestead of
Timothy. The present Kew York and New Haven Eailroad is
very nearly on the line of the two. It seems to be clear that
Joseph was the brother of Timothy, and, if so, of Nathaniel, as
these last two were brothers, as appears by page 118 of the same
volume, in Milford Records. Joseph was probably the youngest,
as he is named last in his father's will. There can be no practical
doubt that Timothy, Nathaniel and Joseph were the three of that
name, sons of Richard, of Cholesbury, County Bucks, England,
whose will was proved in 1633, and whose children disappeared
from Bucks. Cholesbury joins Aston Clinton, whence came most
of the other Baldwins of Milford. (See for Richard, of Choles-
bury, in the early part of this volume, page 23, Richard- Richard, ^
of Bucks.)

Joseph's wife Hannah joined the Church June 23, 1644, and
their first four children were then baptized. About 1663, he
removed to Hadley, Mass., freeman there, with his son Joseph in
1666. Pie m. 2"'^*' Isabel Northam, widow of James Northam, who
had come with her son John as Widow Catlin, from Newark, N. J.,
and she died Dec. 8, 1676. He m. 3"'' Elizabeth Hitchcock, widow
of William "Warriner, of Springtield. He died Nov. 2, 1684 ; his
widow, April 25, 1696. He had, long before death, conveyed a
half interest in his homestead in Hadley to his son Joseph, who
died before him. His will (in Northampton, ^Mass.), is dated Dec.
20, 1680. His property in Milford was given to his three sons,
Benjamin, Jonathan and Joseph, to whom he had formerly given
it. His other property is distributed to his wife, and to his other
children.
