724 Baldwin Genealogy.

Vice President of the American Institute at its organization, but
died at the age of forty-one years.

Austin was a bright boy, apt in school, and soon skilled in his
father's business. He was in politics before he was of age. He
was brought to the front on the question of State prison labor
as affecting mechanical business, especially plane manufacturing.
A meeting having been called, Mr. M. L. Davis, the Secretary of
Aaron Burr, called upon him to speak. His eloquence carried the
meeting by storm, and he became, with no design on his part, the
leader of the movement in regard to State prison labor, and
looked to by the working-men of iS^ew York as a champion. He
was afterwards a frequent and eloquent political speaker. At an
anti-Jackson meeting in Masonic Hall, presided over by Philip
Hone, then Mayor of Xew York, he suggested that they should
reinstate the Whig principles of 1776, and instead of planting
hickory trees again, erect the old-fashioned liberty-poles. The
suficgestion was received with enthusiasm, and the name Whio:
adopted by the party. The first liberty pole was erected under
his care at the corner of Grand street and Broadway. His political
position was fine, but in 1837 he removod with the plane business
(which he carried on after the death of his father) to Middletown,
Conn. He was, under Harrison, for four years Collector of the
district ; a Member of the Legislature, serving as Speaker.

In 1857, he resigned his position as President of the Baldwin
Tool Company, selling out his stock in it, and returned to J^ew
York, where he engaged in the Foreign Express and Exchange
business. He was, while in Connecticut, one of the four Baldwins
at various times nominated as Governor of that State, and one of
the three whose party did not get the most votes.

In early life he studied law, and had some experience in teach-
ing, and while teaching wrote a primary arithmetic which, though
over forty years old, is still in use. He has paid little attention to
politics since he returned to l^ew York, but is the pleasant, genial,
intelligent gentleman of the old and well-known, house of Austin
Baldwin & Companj^ 53 Broadway, still engaged in the Foreign
Express and Exchange business, and representing the State Steam-
ship Company.

Francis Baldwin, of Chester County, Penn,,


1. FRANCIS BALDWIN was a settler in the neighborhood
of West Chester county, Penn., as early as 1686. He was the
brother of John and Thomas, as appears by the will of John, of
Chester, who in 1731 left legacies to Thomas and John, sons of
his brother Francis. Francis was a miller, and died in Xew Castle
county in 1702, although he was a juror at Chester Court not
long before (July 19, 1700). In 1691, his father-in-law, Thomas
Colbourne, conveyed to him one hundred acres of land in Chester
Creek and in Chester. The will of his brother John leaves live
shillings each to "all my brother Francis Baldwin's children." I
know the names onlv of those named in the same will as legatees
of £10 each.

2. Thomas, may likely have been Thomas, Sen., of Kennet, in 1738. (See No.
7, further on.)

3. Johr.

His name apiiears. in Chester countv. as witness to deeds in
1691, 1697, 1699 and 1700. He received from Thomas Colbourne,
in 1691, a deed of one hundred acres in Chester. The considera-
tion was an annuity. In 1692, John Maddock conveyed fifty
acres in Nether Providence, "Nether Cutt," which he had pur-
chased of Francis Baldwin. In 1695, he received a record deed
from Thomas Colbourne of one hundred acres in Chester, which
next year he conveyed to Joseph Colbourne for £50. Letters of
administration were granted, Aug. 17, 1702, to his widow Cicely,
by the Register General, at Philadelphia, Mr. Cope thinks a

4. Ann, m. William Ford, of Bethel (now), Delaware county, Penn. Ford
was of Brandy wine Hundred, Delaware county, in 17-45; he has known descend-

728 Baldwin Genealogy.

I am not able to trace the sons of Francis. Further investiga-
tion in this line may perhaps succeed. Mr. Cope, whose use of
the word " probably " has come to give me considerable confidence,
thinks a son or grandson — probably the last — was

5. FRANCIS ^ Francis,^ of Kennett ; taxed there ; unm.

in 1735 and 1740. My next list is in 1747, when he does not
appear. He was not a Quaker. He m., in 1746, Charity (Harlan),
w^idow of Joseph Hackney, of Kennett, who died intestate, leaving
six children: Sarah, Mary, Aaron, Charity, Joseph and John.
She was the daughter of Aaron and Sarah Harlan, married by a
"priest," and disowned in 1747. I do not know what children,
if any, she had by Francis, or where they went — perhaps to A^ir-
ginia. The Hackneys went to Frederick county. I must add as
probable grandchildren, William and Thomas next succeeding.

6. WILLIAM 3 -' Francis. ^ He must be, I think, one of

the two brothers, William and Thomas, who by tradition of their
descendants went from the vicinity of Chester to Virginia, and it
is said lived for a while in Philadelphia ; b., it is said, by one, in
1716, which is probably too early. William is said to have been
wounded at Brandy wine, and to have been crippled by that acci-
dent. He ra., it is said, Anna Lucas.

16. James R., b. in 1784.

17. Joshua, d. in Findlay, Hancock county, Ohio, and left a s. Abraham C. ;
in 1874, of Tiffin, Ohio.

7. THOMAS =^ -' Fraucis.i He must be, I think, the

Thomas who, with brother William, was by tradition from tlie
vicinity, and settled in Virginia; said to have lived in Philadelphia
for a while. Said to have m. Jane Simmons. He was not un-
likely, for a while, one of the Thomases of Kennett, where Francis
was. Feb., 1749, Thomas and wife Sarah, of Kennett, convey six

acres, conveyed to them in 1738, when Thomas is called of Iven-
nett and Junior. But I cannot identify tlie several Thomases.

11. BENJAMIN MVilliam 3 ^ Francis.^ It is said he was

in the Revolutionary war. He must have been very young, and
the war near its close; yet he may have been the oldest and William
the youngest. He d. in Warren county, Ohio, and had descend-
ants, among whom was William, of Blanchester. C. H., of Chicago,
gives him a grandson Joseph, at Lancaster, Ohio.

John Baldwin, of Chester County, Penn,


1. JOHN BALDWIN", was an early settler in Aston, then in
Delaware, now in Chester county, Penn. He m., July 4, 1689,
Katharine Turner, according to the usage of the Friends, and is
then called of Aston, and carpenter. Katharine was a Carter, and
m., in 1687, Edward Turner. Both marriages were in Philadel-
phia. John obtained a warrant, in 1702, for one hundred acres of
land, iifty in the right of his own service to Joshua Hastings, and
fifty in the right of his wife Katharine, servant to John Blunston.
According to William Penn's "conditions or concessions," those
who came as servants with the first adventurers were entitled to
fifty acres each at the end of service, on rent. It is likely that
the term was stretched, says Mr. Cope, in its application, so as to
include all who came under contract to perform service of any
kind. The warrant is as follows :

Pen:ssylyania, ss. By tlie Commissioners of Property.
