About Thomas Baldwin

THOMAS3,Barnabas2,Richard1 (of Milford, Ct)

Thomas Baldwin, son of Barnabas Baldwin and Sarah Buckingham, was born before 1792, in Milford, New Haven Co., Connecticut, when he received from his grandfather Buckingham a gift of land, purchased of Lieut. Sylvanus. He was bapt. on Jan. 1, 1699 at the First Church of Milford. He married on Jan 17, 1711, in Milford, with JERUSHA CLARK. He was a tailor and lived in Milford township, though possibly that part of it now Woodbridge, when he received lands of his father, in 1720, in "Hogg Meadow;" and he had frequent deeds of land in the same vicinity. He and his wife were admitted to full communion on June 19, 1714. He was Thomas Sr, (the Thomas Junior, of Milford, being Thomas3,Richard2,John1).

Children were: Enoch (11/29/1712, d.y.), Sarah (8/29/1715; m. John Woodruff), Deborah (1/25/1716; m. Samuel Newton), Anna (bpt 4/12/1719; m. 1st Richard Rollingsworth; 2nd Jehiel Law), and Martha (bpt 12/8/1723; not unlikey m. Clark, and d. before 1773, as her father, in his will, dated Apr. 12, 1770, proved Mar 1773, omits her, but mentions his granchild Martha Clark.

It is said, by his descendants of the Watertown branch, to have been deacon.

His will was dated Apr. 12, 1770 and proved in Mar. 1773. The exact date and place of his death is not known.
