Additional Information

Samuel Baldwin:


From "North American Histories, 1500-2000, Baldwin Genealogy, from 1500-1881"
8. Samuel (2) Nathaniel (1) b. in Fairfield, Conn., 1655; m. Abigail, b. Nov 16, 1658, dau. John Baldwin, Sen., of Milford. He was ablacksmith, and was invited from Fairfield to Guilford, in 1675, by a vote of the town of Guilford, "to work upon his trade of smithing, upon trial" The trade was then in high repute, as many Town Records show. I have met with numbers of instances of similar solicitation, of wealth acquired, and positions of honor filed by the "smith." The presen tone no doubt proved satisfactory upon trial, as he continued to reside in Guilford, accumulating a handsome property, and raiisng a large family to be prosperous and well married. We shall see that his grandson, a blacksmith, numbered among his children a Senator of the United States and Governor of Georgia, a Judge of the Supreme Court of the United States and the first Speaker of the House in Ohio, while the daughters were equally well mated.
The town of Guilllford granted him, July 15, 1676, half an acre upon the green, opposite John Bishop's house, for his shop "for his encouragement and accomodation of his trade," with the promise that if he left, it should return to the town, they paying for buildings, fences and orchards. He die on Jan. 12, 1696. The distribution was to his widow and eldest son, and to each of the others, being five in number.
