About William Baldwin






1. John BALDWIN was born in 1415.

John BALDWIN had the following children:

+2 i. William BALDWIN. 3 ii. Sylvester BALDWIN died in 1503. May have married Sara(h) Gelly? I have seen this Sylvester son of John (b1415) as died in 1503 and married to Sara(h) Gelly. I have also seen a Sylvester (no father listed) who married Sara(h ) Gelly and died in 1593. There has been some speculation that Sylvester is the father of Henry who married Alice King I have found no evidence of this and the dates seem to far apart for this to be likely.

Inquest of his estate was held at Aylesbury, Dec 22, 1545. " He was a member of the inner temple and appointed reader in 1516, 1524 and 1531. He twice filled the office of treasurer, 1524 and 1530. He was of Bucks in 1510 (on commission of the peace)..... In 1520 he was a man of sufficient mark to be nomin ated on the sheriff roll, but he was not selected by the king. In 1529 he was on the commission to hear causes in chancery committed to then Cardinal Wolsey, then lord chancellor. In 1530, on Cardinal's fall,he was selected to hold inquisition a s to the extent of his property in Bucks. He set in the House of Commons once, being burgess for Bendon in Wiltshire in 1529. In 1530 he was appointed attorney general for Wales and the Marches, and also of the county Palntine of Chester and Flint. His patent as sarjeant-in-law is dated Nov 16, 1531. According to Dugdale he and Thomas Willoughby were the first serjeants-in-law to receive the honor of knighthood. this was in 1534. In 1535, he was appointed chief justice of common pleas and almost the first cases in which he acted in a judiciary capacity were the trials of Bishop Fisher and Sir Thomas More for treason. He also acted in the same capacity at the trials of Anne Boleyn the same year. He seemed to have lived principally at Aylesbury. He aquired a house and site of the Grey Friars and the manors of Ellesberough and Durich" (Dist Am. Biog.) Colonel Chester says he was given the Manor of Dunridge in Bucks by Henery VIII shortly after 1541, and that he died in1545. When he died he left no surviving sons. The D.N.B. article says he had a son William, who married Mary Tyringham, but died during his father's lifetime. The estate passed to his heirs, Thomas Packington, son and heir of his daughter Agnes, wife of Robert Packington, and to John Burlacy, son and hair of his daughter Petronilla. The manor then passed to Thomas Packingto n's son and heir, John, who in March 1577/78 alienated to Henry and Richard Baldwin, who in 1579 paid the taxes on the manor. These are considered by Col. Chester to be father and son. In 1553 two brothers, Richard and John occupied Dundridge. Thi s was but eight years after the death of Sir John. These brothers are probably the sons of Richard - the brother of Sir John.
