General Notes: Husband - John Baldwin, The Immigrant

This John is the son of John BALDWIN who died about 1637 in Bucks Co.,
England, and who had a wife Hannah.

Ancestors probably:

1. William BALDWIN (1441 - ) & Jane AYLESBURY
2. Sir John BALDWIN (11 Aug 1470 - )
3. Richard BALDWIN (1503 - )
4. Henry O. BALDWIN (1529 - )
5. John BALDWIN I (1565 - 14 Oct 1637) & Hannah ?
>> 6. John BALDWIN II (24 Jun 1619 - ) & Mary CAMP ( - Before 1653)

Ref#168:
{is this his son John?}
pg. xxxv
John Baldwin, "of Newark in the Government of New England," made his will
December 25, 1688. If was proved before a single Justice, thus:
"Appeared before me, John Curtis & John Browne this 28 of November 1689
& took oath that this is to the best of their knowledge the Last will &
Testament of John Baldwin of Newark Lately Deceased
"Thomas Johnson Justice."

The following entry is interesting, as showing the simple and apparently
entirely satisfacory method of getting an authoritative construction of a
will:
"Whereas William Camp & Seth Tompkins overseers of the Last will of
John Baldwin deceased, convinced {convened} the Justices of Newark
together (namely Mr John Ward, & Mr Thomas Johnson) to give their sence &
Approbation of what might be most sutable to the settling of what Lands
belong to the heire.
"Our sence is that the sd Lands spoken of in the sd will, willed to his
daugher Hannah Tichenor, be settled vpon the son of John Baldwin Junir &
the profits of the same fore the time to come, only the crop vpon the
ground, Ebenezer Lindly is to take it off, without any molestation, this
we give as our Apprehention this :20th: of June :1691:
"John Ward Justice
"Thomas Johnson Justice."

Ref#63:
Came to Connecticut with the other Milford, Baldwins. John Baldwin's
name was very common in Bucks , England at that time. He might have
been brother of Sylvester? Sylvester died on the passage in 1638. May
have been cousin of Sylvester? Unlikely, a nephew? February, 1639,
Milford, Conn. Was purchased from the Indians, settlement made during
the year and Nov 29, 1639 the name "free" planters appears in Milford
Records. John Baldwin was considered a "settler", because he was not a
church member. Milford was a religious community or colony. He joined
the church March 19, 1648. His homestead was orginal lot #13, in
Milford, on west side of the river. A little north west of the town
hall, on the premises now or lately occuppied by Rev. Asa M.
Train(1875). He moved to Newark, N.J. a year or after 1666, but
returned to Milford.

General Notes: Husband - Richard Baldwin

Yes, I am sure about Elnathan being my ancestor and being the son of John
BALDWIN (b. abt. 1640) & Ruth BOTTSFORD. An abstract of John's will is
in the book of abstracts of NJ wills. It lists Elnathan and Ruth as
John's widow; it also mentions some of his children as being from a first
wife. I am fairly certain this John died in Newark, NJ in 1706, because
the will was proved on 31 Aug 1706 and in those days wills were usually
proved about 1 to 3 months after death. Hannah BRUEN was John's first
wife, mar. Oct. 1663; and Ruth was his second. I do not have marriage
date for Ruth or when either wife died.

Most of my info comes from the book "The Baldwin Genealogy" by Charles C.
Baldwin, 1881, and supplement, 1889. And, also, an article from the book
"Genealogies of Conn. Families". And, also, some pages in "History of
Essex and Hudson Counties, New Jersey". And, also, a few other misc.
articles.

Ref#113:
Could have died Dec 13. 1739 at Newark and buried at Old Presby Church.
Will dated Sept 23, 1702 and proved Aughust 31, 1706.


Ref#168:
NEW JERSEY COLONIAL DOCUMENTS, CALENDAR OF WILLS - 1670-1730; pg. 24

1702, Sept. 23. Baldwin, John, of Newark, shoemaker, will of.
Wife (second) Ruth; children--John, by former wife; Samuel, by present
wife; Timothy, Daniel, Joseph, Nathaniel, Jonathan, Sarah, Hanna,
Elizabeth (all three by former wife), Ruth, Elnathan. Land between two
branches of Second River, as per patent of January 23, 1695-6, home-
stead bought of Thomas Staples, land in the Little Neck, do. near
Wheeler's Point, do. at Boef Point, do. on the side of the mountain betw.
Jasper Crane and Nathaniel Wheeler, personal property. Executors--
the wife and son Elnathan, with John Curtis and John Prudden, senior, as
supervisors. Witnesses--John Prudden, senior; John Curtis and Hannah
Curtis. Proved and Elnathan sworn in as executor August 31, 1706.
Lib. I, p. 158, and Essex Wills

Ref#63:
Excepted full communion in Milford, Conn. Oct 8, 1662. A committee of
Milford men had been appointed to select land. John Baldwin Jr. was one
of those people who first settled in Newark, N.J.. He was one of the 4
whom bought the neck in 1674, which he paid 310 Sh.. He was shoemaker,
chosen at town meeting "to look that the young people carry themselves
orderly in times of divine worship".
