This work includes many of the descendants of Thomas Baker who came in 1639 to Connecticut from Hothfield, Kent in southeastern England. There he became one of the founders of Milford, one of the six original towns of the New Haven Colony. In the summer of 1650 Thomas Baker purchased the property and rights of Daniel Howe who was one of the original seven settlers of East Hampton, Long Island. He became a leading citizen of East Hampton and served the community in many capacities for the remainder of his life.
Descendants that remained in Long Island or migrated to areas other than New Jersey are followed for several generations. However, the majority of original research and documentation is focused upon individuals descended from two of Thomas Baker's great grandsons, Nathaniel Baker (1717-1786) and Henry Baker (1727-1780), who removed to New Jersey where they were progenitors of two of the early families of Westfield.
