Nathaniel Baldwin

1Ezra S. Stearns, William F. Whitcher, and Edward E. Parker, Genealogical and Family History of the State of New Hampshire: A Record of the Achievements of Her People in the . . ., Vol. 1, p. 68 (1908).
"(1) Nathaniel, probably second son of Richard and Isabell Baldwin, of the parish of Cholesbury, Buckinghamshire,England, is supposed to have been a great-grandson of Richard of Dundridge, of the parish of Aston-Clinton, Buckinghamshire, England. The date of the will of Richard of Dundridge is January, VI Edward, that is, 1552, and that of Richard of Colesbury is May 23, 1630. Nathaniel Baldwin was a brother of Timothy and Joseph, and came to Milford, Connecticut, in 1639, in the New Haven Company. His name appears in the Milford records as a "Free Planter." He was a cooper by trade, and in 1641 a resident of Fairfield, where he died in 1650, and where the probate of his estate appears. He married (first), Abigail Camp, who joined the church at Milford on June 9, 1644, and died there March 2, 1648. The children of this union were: John, Daniel, Nathaniel and Abigail. He married (second), Joanna Westcoat, widow of Richard, of Fairfield, Connecticut, and moved there perhaps the second time. By her he had: Sarah, Deborah and Samuel. After the death of Nathaniel his widow married, third, George Abbott, of Fairfield, and died in 1682. She is mentioned in the records as "Goodwife Baldwin," and was a witness in a trial for witchcraft in 1654. An unusual number of the descendants of Nathaniel have been eminent, and the family generally has been of high respectability."

It appears that this source errs on Nathaniel's 1650 death date, because he had 3 children by Joanna Waistcoat after Abigail Camp's death on 22 Mar.1648.

The information in this source differs in many ways from the source in footnote 1.
