Donn, after rechecking, I found that I have seen some of the entries in Aubrey Baldwin's book.

Thanks, Donn.  I think I am descended from brother Thomas. No, I am not familiar with Aubrey's; I'll check it out. I think I have a handle on my line from Thomas but I am working to trace the family prior to Thomas and his arrival in Pennsylvania.

Gerald, which of the three Oxfordshire brothers--Thomas, John or Francis--are you descended from? Are you familiar with Aubrey Baldwin's Revised Baldwin Genealogy, which covers their lines down through the late 20th Century in Volume 5? It is a useful resource, but it does have errors, and its sources aren't always cited.

Hello. Just joined and glad to meet everyone. Researching BALDWINS from Chester PA (some where apparently Quakers) and their ancestors in England. BALDWINS moved from Chester, PA and headed south settling in NC, SC and then GA. Prior to immigration to US, they were apparently living in OXFORDSHIRE ENGLAND (probably in Hook Norton). Any relevant info appreciated.

Anyone have a Julliette BALDWIN who married a ROBERTSON sometime before 1820?  I am not sure on the location, but If this is the right family 2 of their sons lived in Nashville, Tn in 1850.  Abner Baldwin ROBERTSON (AB in the census) and Christmas Walter ROBERTSON (WC in the census) were living int he same house.  WC living with AB and his family.  Some say that Abner Baldwin's father wasnt William, but i think it was.  CW named his children in a traditional nameing pattern.  William was his son in the lineup where a father would name his son after his own father.  and Elizabeth was where the daughter would be named after his mother.  There is an Julliette in there that im not sure who it might be... maybe his fathers 2nd wife? Abner Baldwin ROBERTSON also named one of his sons William, but not one of his sons was named Nathaniel, the man some people think is his father.

I am researching a Baldwin family from Ireland. William Baldwin b. abt 1800 Ireland and Mary Tracey b abt 1800 Ireland. In Nova Scotia by late 1820s where they had at least 4 children, William, Richard, Alice and Ellen. These 4 came to Boston Ma. Ellen never married. Alice married my Byrnes ancestor and had 3 children. Her brothers witnessed her husband's naturalization (which was how I conveniently found them). William married had many children, Richard married and had 4 or 5 daughters. I am trying to find what happened to their parents (did they die in Nova Scotia?) and where in Ireland the parents came from.

I am researching Phyllis (Filis) Baldwin who was born between 1755 and 1765 in North Carolina, probably in the Wilkes County area. She married Jacob Roberts (Robards) around 1782 and they lived in Wilkes Co., NC. He died between 1820 and 1830. She most likely moved to Carter Co., Tennessee with two of her sons and their families as there is a woman of her age shown in the household of her son William on the 1830 US Census, Carter Co., Tennessee.

Alas, it would be great to prove her parents. My theory is that they were John and Phillis Baldwin who owned land near Deep River in 1762 and sold it in 1763. This was a Rowan Co., NC deed and the area was near what is now High Point, NC. Of course, the name Phillis seems to jump out here, making it probable. John and Phillis lived along Potato Creek in the northern part of Wilkes County. Have never located a will for him.
