About Samuel Baldwin

SAMUEL2, Nathaniel1 (of Milford)

Samuel Baldwin, son of Nathaniel Baldwin and Joanna (unknown) Westcoat, was b. in Fairfield, Conn., in 1655; m. with ABIGAIL BALDWIN, dau. of John Baldwin,Sr. of Milford. She was b. Nov. 16,1658. He was a blacksmith, and was invited from Fairfield to Guilford, in 1675, by a vote if the Town "to work upon his trade of smithing, upon trial." The trade was then in high regard and he continued to reside in Guilford, accumulating a handsome property and raising a large family to be prosperous and well married.

The Town of Guilford granted him, on July 15,1676, half an acre upon the Green for his shop, with the promise that if he left, it should return to the town (evidently a premium site).

Children were: Abigail (1678; m. Joseph Starr), Deborah (4/1681-12/1681), Dorothy (1683; m. Ziba Tryon), Joanna (1686; m. Samuel Rose), Samuel (1689), Timothy (1691), and Nathaniel (1693).

Samuel died Jan. 12,1696 and his widow Abigail remarried, as a 2nd wife, to John Wadhams and had children: Mary (1698), and Martha (1701).
