He was one of the associates in buying Newark and settled there. He had ch.: 1. Mary. (?) May be a mistake of Mr. Savage for Mary, the sister, who m. John Baldwin, Sen [Others think this is a mistake too] 2. Rebecca, 15 m. Thomas Post 3. Hannah, 15 b. Jan. 9, 1644; m. [13 Oct 1653] John BALDWIN, s. John, Sen. of Milford (ante page 300.) [CC Baldwin Gen] 4. John, 15 b. June 2, 1646 [CCB concludes by quoting Tuttle to the effect that (naturally) the Bruen's are descended from the usual collection of famous royals- William the Conqueror; ancient kings of Scotland; Saxon kings of England; Alfred the Great; Hugh Capet; Robert, King of France; Charlemagne and Constantine. Anybody have the sources on all that? (Bev asked ingenuously!) Oh yes, I left out Pepin, the Old; b abt A.D. 560; King John and four or five Barons who signed the Magna Carta. This last if from 'At the Sign of the Crest' by Hazel Kraft Eilers in Hobbies, The Magazine for Collectors, Sept. 1952, p. 156. The references she gives for Pepin and company are 'The Encyclopedia of American Biography' and 'The Ancestry of John Barber White', neither of which I have looked at. Meanwhile, back in the colonies, the Bruens were continuing to create descendants. Eilers adds a few details (e.g. Plymouth) but seems to have relied upon CCB's account from Tuttle:] Obadiah BRUEN, 14 b. Dec. 25, 1606; m. Sarah _____; landed at Plymouth, Mass., 1640-1. He first settled at Marchfield, Mass. He was admitted 'freeman, 1642, selectman 1642 and for several years following. He was Representative in Massachusetts; after that, for fifteen years, Town Clerk of New London, Conn; one of the grantees in the Royal Charter of Connecticut. He was one of the associates in buying Newark and settled there. He had ch.: 1. John,15 b. June 2, 1646 m. Esther Lawrence, dau. of Deacon Richard Lawrence of New Haven, CT 2. Rebecca,15 m. Thomas Post of Norwich 3. Hannah,15 b. Jan. 9, 1644; m. [13 Oct 1653] John BALDWIN, Jr. of Milford [Beware of the confusions over John Baldwin Senior, Junior, John I, John II etc. It is argued- persuasively by some- that the John Baldwin Jr. of Newark was not the son of John Baldwin Senior of Milford although it is agreed that John Baldwin Senior of Milford did have a son named John Baldwin.
