About James Baldwin

JAMES3, Joseph2, Joseph1


James Baldwin, son of Joseph 1640, was b. in Malden, Mass., probably between 1664-1668 (a median of 1666 is being used). There is, in Milford Records, a deed to him, Aug. 5,1692, as James B., weaver. He was admitted to the Church there in 1699; his wife Elizabeth, July 18,1703. On Jan. 12,1692, he acted with Eliezer Rogers, in dividing the undivided estate of his grandfather Joseph the first,, between Jonathan and the children of David; Benjamin having removed to New York, and conveyed to the other two.

James was one of the proprietors of Durham at the date of the patent, May 1, 1708. His dau. Hannah was bapt. in Milford, as dau. of James, of Durham. He continued to reside in Durham,probably until after 1724, but removed to Saybrook, Conn., where his will, dated 1748, was proved in 1756. He remembered his wife Hannah (a 2nd wife?), and children Elizabeth, Hannah & Moses. A search for any history for David and Aaron failed to reveal anything, they were probably dead without issue.

Children were: Elizabeth (1697), David (bapt1699),Phebe (bapt1701),Elizabeth (bapt1703), Moses (twin,bapt1705), Aaron (twin,1705), and Hannah (bapt1710).
