BALDWIN OF IRELAND.
William BALDWIN, of East Orange in New Jersey, and a Member of the American Institute of New York, had his book, “Genealogy of Baldwins from Queen’s County, Ireland, and Their Descendants in America and Elsewhere,” published in the U.S. in 1918.
A copy of this book, lodged in the Library of the University of Wisconsin, has been digitalised by Google.
William recorded in his preface that “… the BALDWIN family tradition is that several persons of the name settled in Ireland during the Commonwealth, some making their homes in the County of Queen’s.”
He also noted that his warm personal friend, Rev S. L. BALDWIN, D.D., had given him “… some notes prepared by himself on the three volume edition of Hon. C. C. BALDWIN’s ‘Genealogy of the Baldwins in Great Britain and the United States’… prepared a few years ago prior to his death.”
However, the Hon C. C. BALDWIN, a Judge, was “… of old New Jersey stock” whose family had come over early and direct from the County of Buckingham in England, and so did not share William’s Irish descent.
William noted later [at page 64], the Irish BALDWIN family tradition that “… there were three brothers who entered Ireland with General CROMWELL.”
He also noted that one of these brothers, John BALDWIN of Summerhill, was a native of Lancashire (or so his source had believed), which appears to make any relationship between him and the Judge very unlikely, or at least very distant.
Indeed, as we shall see below, John BALDWIN of Summerhill was evidently born about 1645, so was unlikely to have gone to Ireland with CROMWELL unless it was with his father - but it is not uncommon in these sorts of pedigrees for generational inaccuracies to arise when looking back in time, and beyond recorded memory.
William also acknowledged a number of his sources:
1. Mr Thomas U. SADLIER, Registrar, Ulster King of Arms, Dublin Castle, who “… has given valuable aid in our researches.”
2. Mr Jacob BALDWIN of Doon, Queen’s County, who “… sent us a copy of a pedigree of the Summerhill family prepared by Frederick B. FALKINER.”
3. Miss HELEN FITZGERALD, of Mountmellick, for “… a copy of ‘The Geraldines’ in which the BALDWINs were named.”
4. Mrs Sarah Baldwin BELL, Mrs Isabella Baldwin CUNNINGHAM, Mrs Louise WILKINSON and Mr Henry Rose BALDWIN of Seattle, and others, for “… their valuable assistance.”
William cites Hon Judge BALDWIN as having recorded [his “Genealogy,” page 808], and he in turn citing Thomas Haslem BALDWIN as his source, “… that the said brothers located, one at Rakenduff, one at Summerhill, one at Doone, in Queen’s County.”
Whilst Rakenduff is likely to be in error for Raheenduff, it is clear that two of these are Queen’s County BALDWIN’s of almost certainly later generations.
The date of William BALDWIN’s publication has great significance, being just four years before the disastrous fires in the Four Courts Building in Dublin, which housed the holdings of the Public Record Office of Ireland.
The pedigree information he received from his Irish sources contained large amounts of information that can longer be verified from original documents, and which have thereby earned the status of de-facto Original Source Material.
And it is with these Queen’s County settlers that we begin our story. But before I do, I should declare my interests in the doings of this family.
WHY A BALDWIN FAMILY ON A PIGOTT FAMILY BLOG-PAGE?
To the best of my knowledge, I am not descended from any members of the BALDWIN family. But there are several points of interest that have arisen in my PIGOTT family research.
Firstly, in 1725, Emanuel PIGOTT of Chetwynd, County CORK, purchased the Dysart estates from his second cousin, Robert PIGOTT of Dysart (the last of the senior line of proprietors of the estate, who died in 1730). And in June 1751, Emanuel leased these estates to Joseph BALDWIN, Gent, who appears to have already been residing there, and for a lease term of the lives of three of Joseph's sons (presumably the eldest three - John, Jonathan and Joseph BALDWIN Junior - see below).
Secondly, when Emanuel PIGOTT purchased the Dysart estates in 1725, he subsequently became Impropriator of the joint parishes of Dysart-Enos and Kilteale from 1730 until his death in 1763, and as such, was entitled to two-thirds of the tithes collected in the parishes. To seize unpaid tithes owed by recalcitrant Quakers, he employed local men - including Jonathan and Joseph BALDWIN, as Tithe-takers in 1731; J. BALDWIN in 1732; and Joseph BALDWIN, as Tithe-monger in 1733, 1734 and 1735, as Tithe-taker, in 1737, and again as Tithe-monger in 1742, 1745, 1749 and 1754.
George PIGOTT succeeded his father Emanuel as Impropriator in 1763; he employed George BALDWIN, as Tithe-taker, in 1764; and John BALDWIN, as Tithe-taker, in 1770.
Thomas PIGOTT succeeded his father George in about 1772; he employed John BALDWIN as Tithe-taker in 1778.
The other one-third of tithes collected went to the Rector - Rev John PIGOTT, Emanuel's older brother, was the Rector of Dysart-Enos, and appears in these tithe records in 1731, 1733 and 1735; and Rev William PIGOTT (Rev John's son and Emanuel's nephew), likewise, from 1742 through to 1779.
Thirdly, there do appear, at first glance, to have been two PIGOTT = BALDWIN marriages that took place in the Queen's County:
1. Thomas PIGOTT of Dublin (born in Queen's County, probably about 1725, son of Thomas PIGOTT of Grange, etc, and his wife Mary WHEELER of Dublin), was married, probably in the 1750's or early 1760's, to Helen BALDWIN; as Helen PIGOTT, she was buried at St Luke's Parish Church (C. of I.), Dublin, on 1 June 1764.
In 1904, William Jackson PIGOTT, of Dundrum, County Down, mentioned:
"...Thomas PIGOTT, of Dublin, whose wife Helen BALDWIN, probably of Derry, Dysart or Summerhill, near Mountmellick, died intestate in 1764, administration granted to her husband. The BALDWIN family resided in the PIGOTT's old residence of Dysert, and, on the expiration of the lease of the home farm removed to Derry Farm, on the same estate, then held by Lord CAREW." [Notes and Queries, Tenth Series, Volume II, 27 August 1904, page 176].
This was part of his answer to earlier correspondence from a contributor styled 'Francesca'.
William Jackson PIGOTT was my great-grandfather's first cousin - and we claim a direct descent from a younger brother of the above-mentioned Robert PIGOTT of Dysart who died in 1730. Lord CAREW was Robert Shapland CAREW; his mother was Anne PIGOTT, a grand-daughter of Emanuel PIGOTT of Chetwynd and of Dysart (see below).
Otherwise, no other details are yet known of Helen's life, although it might be presumed that she was probably of a similar age to her husband, or perhaps a bit younger. There is no surviving evidence that she had children - but if she did, and one of them was a son named Edward (although the name no-where appears in the Dysart PIGOTT family before this time), then he would have been aged upwards of 26 years at the birth of William Dowdall PIGOTT (see below).
2. The other is evidently alluded to in a BALDWIN pedigree, probably now lodged in the Genealogical Office in Dublin, and if so, undoubtedly constructed by Sir William BETHAM, Chief Herald in Ireland in the 1830's, from his abstracts of genealogical details from Prerogative Court of Ireland Probate Grants with will copies - and consequently mentioned by William BALDWIN ["Genealogy...,"1918, page 72] in his pedigree of John BALDWIN of Dysart and Elizabeth CAMBIE, who had, inter alia, "...a daughter, wife of Mr PIGOTT" - this marriage probably took place around the 1780's or early 1790's, providing that the note has been attributed to the correct generation. And if it is correct, they may have been the parents of the next.
And fourthly, the above-mentioned William Dowdall PIGOTT was born at Dysart in the Queen's County on 29 September 1790 [so recorded on his gravestone]. He served as a Clerk in the Ordnance Department of the Army, at home and abroad (Malta), retired on a pension in January 1844, emigrated to Canada, and died in February 1882 at Fitzroy Harbor, Carleton County, Ontario.
Before leaving for Malta in January 1833, and while residing in the neighbourhood of the town of Maryborough, on half-pay after an earlier stint with the Ordnance Department, he acted briefly as Trustee for the BALDWIN family of Summerhill, near Maryborough, concerning renewal debts on one of their lease-hold properties - so, having been born in the household of one BALDWIN family, he was sufficiently trusted by a collateral branch to handle aspects of their financial affairs.
William's parents have not yet been identified, which I find to be quite mystifying - but the fact that his middle name was Dowdall suggests to me that he was probably connected to the Capard branch of the PIGOTT family - one of them, Dowdall PIGOTT (ca 1719-1785), having recently occupied that estate, in the parish of Rosenallis, near Mountmellick, but leaving issue, only two illegitimate children named RIGNEY, whom he acknowledged in his will.
However, while William appears to have been reluctant to let his own family know who their grandparents were, he may have left some clues - he named his first son Edward PIGOTT (who died in Malta as an infant), and later a younger son Edward David Baldwin PIGOTT - and I am inclined to the view that the repetition of Edward, and the addition of David BALDWIN suggests that these names probably hold some significance. We might speculate, therefore, on the possibility that Edward may have been his father's name - and that his mother may have been related to the BALDWIN family. Although there may be another but perhaps remote possibility - might the total lack of details about his parentage suggest that he had been born out of wedlock; and might his mother have been the PIGOTT, and his father a BALDWIN?
But, it is of particular interest to note that:
1. In 1791, Edward PIGOTT, Esq, was residing at Dysart, when he subscribed to the publication in Dublin of "Galatea; a Pastoral Romance, imitated from Cervantes," by M. Clarins de FLORIAN.
2. In 1795, Edward PIGOTT witnessed the will of Jonathan BALDWIN of Maryborough, as well as the Deeds Registry memorial associated with it.
3. During the 1790's, David BALDWIN resided at Dysart, perhaps under an earlier lease of the PIGOTT family, or a later one of Lord CAREW.
There was an Edward PIGOTT, probably another, a son of the Rev William PIGOTT (named in the Quaker records mentioned above), and who was also a Minister of the Church of Ireland: Edward is recorded as having been presented (by Rev Richard PIGOTT, D.D., of Cork) to the Rectory of Dysart, in the room of his father William, who resigned, in 1772 ["Biographical Succession List of the Clergy of Kildare Diocese," Rev J.B. LESLIE, 1904, pages 209-210]. But Edward's name does not appear in his father's place in the tithe records mentioned above, so perhaps he did not take up that appointment, or the Quaker recorders were in error. The fact that the Edward PIGOTT, residing at Dysart in 1791 was styled "Esq" suggests there were two - Rev Edward should probably have instead been styled "Clerk." And being Rector of the parish would in itself not have assured him of a residence on the Dysart estate, even if he had taken up the posting. Although the book title does suggest that the Esquire may also have been a man of Classical education.
Rev Dr Richard PIGOTT of Cork was the son of Emanuel, and father of Anne PIGOTT - she was the wife and mother of the Robert Shapland CAREW's, Senior and Junior, respectively, who succeeded to the proprietorship of Dysart.
A SELECTION OF IMPORTANT DOCUMENTS.
In 1922, as mentioned above, several artillery bombardments, aimed at I.R.A. remnants, or ordnance, hiding or concealed in the Four Courts Buildings in Dublin, resulted in fires which destroyed considerable quantities of original documents lodged with the Public Record Office of Ireland, which was then housed there.
Luckily, some of these lost records had been transcribed before the originals were destroyed, and appear, from time to time, in other publications, either as full transcriptions, or as summaries. such as court reports, registered property deeds, or in privately published family histories.
A number of these, concerning the BALDWIN family of the Queen's County, have been found. They now have achieved the status of de-facto Primary Source Material. A number of them are recorded below.
"[Reported by Edmund T. BEWLEY, Esq, Barrister-at-Law.]
"IN RE CLEGG'S ESTATE, Nov 18, 25, 1862."
"Jonathan BALDWIN by his will devised the lands of X, held under a lease of lives renewable forever, to Mary CLEGG for life, with remainder to John CLEGG; but 'if John CLEGG should happen to die before he attains the age of twenty-one years, or married,' then over. Held, that John CLEGG, on attaining the age of twenty-one years, was absolutely entitled; and that the gift over could only take effect if John CLEGG died under the age of twenty-one years, unmarried."
"Jonathan BALDWIN of Maryborough, in the Queen's County, was at the time of his death seized of lands in Castleflemin, Monomendragh or Shianderry, being part of Castleflemin, and the moiety of Leigaragh, situate in the Barony of Ossory, in the Queen's County, under a lease for three lives, renewable forever, bearing date the 25th of May 1742.
"By his will duly made and dated 23rd of December 1803, Jonathan bequeathed to his wife Frances BALDWIN the sum of 1s and 1d sterling, she already having a jointure of £60 a year settled on her on her marriage, and the will then continued in the following words:
'I give and bequeath unto my grand-daughter, Frances CLEGG, the sum of £300 sterling, to be paid by my executors hereinafter named, out of all my landed property, at the value of £100 per year, payable half-yearly, the first payment to be made six months after the death of wife, interest free; but in case my said grand-daughter shall happen to die before she reaches twenty-one years, or married, then my will and desire is that the said sum of £300 shall be paid to such other children of my daughter Mary CLEGG, wife of Benjamin CLEGG, share and share alike, at the rate of £100 per year, as aforesaid. I give and bequeath unto my said daughter, Mary CLEGG, wife of the above-mentioned Benjamin CLEGG, all my right, title, and interest of all my freehold, landed, and chattel property of what kind and nature soever, which I shall die seized and possessed of, to have, receive, and take the rents, issues, and profits thereof respectively, for and during her natural life; and after her decease, I will, devise, and bequeath unto my grandson, John CLEGG, son of my daughter Mary CLEGG, the interest in my said freehold, landed, and chattel property as aforesaid, to have, receive, and take the rents, issues, and profits thereof respectively, for and during of the respectively leases thereof; but in case my said grandson, John CLEGG, should happen to die before he attains the age of twenty-one years, or married, then my will is that my said freehold, landed, and chattel property aforesaid shall be divided, share and share alike, between my said daughter Mary CLEGG's children, in like manner as my said grandson, John CLEGG was to have the same in case he lived. And in case all my grandchildren by my said daughter Mary CLEGG, shall died before they attain the age of twenty-one years, or married, then my will is that my said freehold, landed, and chattel property as aforesaid shall go to and be divided, share and share alike, among the children now living of my brother, James BALDWIN, of Summerhill, and John BALDWIN deceased, for and during the continuance of the respective leases thereof as aforesaid, and to their heirs.'"This was followed by a bequest for the maintenance and education of the testator's grandson, John CLEGG, until he reached the age of twenty-one years.
"Jonathan BALDWIN died on the 1st Jan. 1805, leaving him surviving, Mary CLEGG, his only child, and four grandchildren, namely - John CLEGG (the eldest), Jonathan CLEGG, Robert CLEGG and Frances CLEGG.
"By a deed of mortgage, bearing date the 6th of November 1837, and made between Mary CLEGG and John CLEGG of the one part, and Richard EVANS of the other, Mary CLEGG and John CLEGG demised the lands before mentioned to Richard EVANS for 1,000 years as security for the repayment of a sum of £1,000 with interest thereon at £6 per cent. In or as of Hilary Term, 1842, Richard EVANS obtained a judgement in the Court of Queen's Bench against John CLEGG for the penal sum of £1,000 conditioned for the payment of £500.
"On 31st December 1854, Mary CLEGG died. John CLEGG attained the age of twenty-one years in the year 1822, but up to the time of the present suit, had not been married; and by an inquisition bearing date 2nd of August 1855, had been found a lunatic from the month of October 1851.
"The appellant, Isabella EVANS, widow of Richard EVANS before-mentioned, and his executrix, on 17 September 1861 presented a petition in the Landed Estates Court, praying that the lands comprised in the lease of 25 May 1742, or a competent part of them, might be sold for the purpose of discharging the incumbrances thereon; and by order of the said Court, dated 4 February 1862, it was ordered that these lands should be sold."

EXHIBIT 2 - A CHANCERY COURT CASE IN 1835.
2 June 1835.
[My abstracted list of people mentioned and who were living in 1835:
1. Plaintiffs - Robert BALDWIN, Edward BALDWIN (his brother), John BALDWIN (probably their cousin), and E. A. ROBINSON. Their Solicitor was Mr FLETCHER; their trustees were Mr (Lewis?) MOSSE and Mr W. D. PIGOTT.
[Summary of case]2. Defendant - Sir Brook William BRIDGES, 5th Baronet, of Goodnestone, Kent. His Agent in Ireland was Mr FREKE.
"The plaintiffs held under a lease for three lives with a covenant for perpetual renewal, two of the 'cestui que vies' (one of them was the father and the other the uncle of one of the plaintiffs) having died, the landlord, on 28 January 1832, served a notice on the plaintiffs calling upon them to pay the renewal fines and interest, and to furnish a renewal for execution. On 17 February a draft renewal was furnished to the landlord's agent, a blank having been left for the amount of the renewal fines, as the period of the 'cestui que vies' was not then ascertained; on the 28th of the same month it was returned by the agent with some alterations, who asserted that one of the lives had dropped in 1804, and the other in 1818 [this year appears to be a mis-print for '1814 or 1815' - see the Judge's summary below]. The plaintiffs, on 28 September, ascertained, by a search of the parish registry books, that one of the lives dropped in 1804 and the other in 1818; and on 20 October tendered the amount of the renewal fines, which the landlord refused."
"The plaintiffs, under the circumstances, were decreed entitled to a renewal upon payment of the costs of the suit, although it was proved that some time previous to the service of the notice on the 28th of January 1832, they had been required to take out the renewal."
[The detailed case]
"By indenture of lease of 2nd February 1731, made between Brook BRIDGES (ancestor of the defendant) and Jonathan BALDWIN, the said Brook BRIDGES demised the premises in question to Jonathan BALDWIN, his heirs and assigns, to hold for the life of Jonathan BALDWIN and two other lives therein mentioned, at the rent of £14, with a covenant for renewal on the payment of a fine of £7, and to surrender the said lease within six months of the death of any 'cestui que vies'; and that the like making and perfecting of the like lease, mutatis mutandis, after the like payment of £7 sterling, from time to time, so often as any of the like deceases should happen, and the like surrender should be made, should be continued or renewed from time to time forever.
"In 1770, Jonathan BALDWIN died, and his interest became vested in James BALDWIN, and in 1780, another of the 'cestui que vies' having died, and the inheritance have (sic) become vested in William BRIDGES, he by indenture of lease and release of 21st and 22nd December 1784, in consideration of the surrender of the said renewal of 1731, and of payment of the renewal fines, demised the premises to James BALDWIN, for the lives of him the said James BALDWIN, Jonathan BALDWIN Junior, and Robert BALDWIN, with a covenant of perpetual renewal similar to that of the lease of 1731.
"In 1808, James BALDWIN, under a power contained in articles executed on his marriage, appointed the said premises to his two sons, the said Robert BALDWIN and Edward BALDWIN, two of the plaintiffs, as tenants in common; and they, in the same year, in consideration of £2,000, secured by two several bonds and judgements, conveyed their interest to one ROBINSON, who devised the same in trust for his son, E. A. ROBINSON (also one of the plaintiffs) and others of his family.
"In 1827, in consequence of disputes amongst the ROBINSON family, the premises were conveyed by all the parties interested to Mr MOSSE, upon certain trusts, and afterwards in the same year, they were conveyed by MOSSE and the said parties to W. D. PIGOTT, upon trust, out of the rents and profits, to pay off encumbrances, amongst which were the said two judgement debts of £1,000 each, due to the plaintiffs, Robert and Edward BALDWIN, and after the same should be discharged, upon trust to re-convey to E. A. ROBINSON. This trust afterwards became vested in the plaintiff John BALDWIN.
"Jonathan and James BALDWIN, two of the 'cestui que vies' having died, Mr FREKE, the agent for the defendant Sir B. W. BRIDGES, the head landlord, on 28 January 1832 served a notice on the said MOSSE and PIGOTT, calling on them to pay the renewal fines and interest, and to produce a renewal prepared for the execution. The plaintiffs' solicitor, on 17 February, sent to FREKE a draft renewal for his approval, a blank having been left for the amount of the renewal fines, as the periods at which the lives had dropped were not then ascertained; this draft was returned on 28 February, but the blank was not filled up.
"On 28 September, it was determined, after a search of the parish registry books, that Jonathan BALDWIN was buried in January 1805, and James BALDWIN in September 1818. One of them was father and the other the uncle of Robert BALDWIN, one of the plaintiffs, and both were buried in the churchyard of Maryborough, where some of the plaintiffs resided.
"A few days afterwards this information was transmitted to the plaintiffs' solicitor, who waited on FREKE on 20 October, and tendered the amounts of the fines and interest, which was refused. In consequence of this refusal, PIGOTT (the trustee) went to England, and there made the same tender to the defendant in person, who likewise declined to accept it. In January 1833, PIGOTT being about to leave the country, assigned his trust to the plaintiff John BALDWIN.
"On the part of the plaintiffs, Mr FLETCHER their solicitor, was examined, who deposed that he had an interview with Mr FREKE on 13 February 1832, who then stated he was informed that one of the lives dropped in 1804, and the other in 1818 [sic - but from the judge's summary, this appears to be a mis-print for 1814 or 1815], and that he, FLETCHER, having replied that the information could not be correct, said he would make inquiries upon the subject, and requested FREKE, who said he would be going to the neighbourhood of the lands, to do the same, which he, FREKE, consented to do, and he then understood that the ascertainment of the fines should stand over until he and FREKE should be satisfied as to the exact period when the lives dropped, and that immediately afterwards he wrote to MOSSE and PIGOTT and to others who resided in the neighbourhood of the lands, to ascertain particularly when the lives dropped, but could get no precise information until the month of October, when PIGOTT came to town and informed him that MOSSE had a few days before ascertained, by a search of the registry of deaths in the parish of Maryborough that the said Jonathan BALDWIN was buried on 4th January 1805, and the said James BALDWIN on 5th September 1818.
"On the part of the defendant, Mr FREKE was examined, who deposed, that in the month of October 1830. and in the months of March and September 1831, he applied to MOSSE to take out a renewal of the lease; that he never entered into any agreement that the matter of the renewal should stand over until he and FLETCHER should be satisfied as to the periods when the lives dropped, but that on the 29th of February 1832, he had a conversation with FLETCHER on the occasion of the returning of the draft renewals, in which he stated that there could no difficulty in ascertaining the periods in which the lives dropped, as they were buried in the town of Maryborough, where some of their relations resided; that MOSSE and PIGOTT also resided in the neighbourhood of the same town, and that he, FREKE, could himself ascertain the periods of the deaths, as he had relatives in the same town; that on the 4th of September in the same year, PIGOTT applied to him, in the town of Maryborough, on the subject of the renewal, when he asked PIGOTT whether he had the renewal fines ready, to which PIGOTT declined giving a reply. It was also proved that Robert BALDWIN, one of the plaintiffs, and Elizabeth, the widow of Jonathan BALDWIN, one of the deceased 'cestui que vies,' resided in the town of Maryborough in January 1832, and continue to reside there since."
After final statements from the representatives of both parties, the Judge delivered his summary of the case, and his judgement, clarifying at least one of the details at issue:
"...Mr FREKE supposed that Jonathan BALDWIN's life had fallen in 1804, and James BALDWIN's in 1814 or 1815. In this respect, FREKE was inaccurate..."
Further, and concerning the conversation between FREKE and FLETCHER concerning the contested versions of the standing over of the renewal, the judge observed:
"...But in connexion with this conversation, we find that in September 1832, which FREKE swears was the first occasion of his visiting the Queen's County after this interview, Mr PIGOTT calls on him at Maryborough to make some application respecting the renewal; when FREKE asked him if he had calculated the renewal fines, and if he had the money ready? PIGOTT's answer is not stated; it is not stated that he gave a positive refusal, or remained silent; and the title to this estate turns on a conversation that is not fully before the court. FREKE only draws inferences and conclusions; he swears, that he conceived PIGOTT's object in his application to be delay; if so, and that he meant to rely on PIGOTT's laches, he ought to have stated this plainly to PIGOTT. After this, so soon as the month of October, it appears that PIGOTT had made the enquiries which FREKE had put on him making, and having ascertained the periods of the deaths of the 'cestui que vies,' he makes the proper tender. There certainly is not the diligence or activity which it might be wise for a party to use in the preservation of his rights; but there was no disposition on the part of the tenant to trick the landlord, or keep him out of his property. There is a difficulty exercising my judgement where all the facts are not fully before the court; and in such a case I am bound to lean against a forfeiture. In this case, I do not think there was wilful neglect.
"I shall therefore decree an account, if required, and a renewal, on payment of costs by the tenant, as the suit has been occasioned by his negligence."

EXHIBIT 3 - A MARYBOROUGH ASSIZES CASE IN 1809.
"But, after 21 years, the delusion vanished, and the defendant's own children became the immediate instruments of justice to the children of his brother.
In the year 1802 the defendant's wife died, and he very soon after, at the age of 78, married a very young woman, which caused him anxiety to his sons, Robert BALDWIN and Edward BALDWIN, whose poignant expression of this feeling so exasperated their father, that he, on his resentment, executed his will to disinherit his eldest son Robert, and, in his fit of anger, showed it to his second son Edward, who instantly determined to get at it and destroy it, to preserve the property to his elder brother.
"With this view he broke open his father's desk, where he found, not his father's will, which he sought after, but the will of his grandfather, which was then altogether forgotten in the family. He read it, and found that the estate, of which his father would have disinherited his brother, lawfully belonged to his cousins, the children of his late uncle John. He immediately communicated the discovery to his brother, and he to their uncle Jonathan, in consequence of which, the will was, about the beginning of the year 1805, lodged in the Prerogative Court.
"When the defendant was apprised of the discovery of the will, he said it was very true, his father never did cancel the will; but he said he did it away by two deeds, by which he afterwards conveyed the property to him, and these deeds were both registered. It appears, indeed, that one such deed was registered since the discovery of the will; and both deeds appearing foully suspicious, a bill was filed in the Court of Exchequer, and on hearing of the cause in the last term, the cousins desired to have the opinion of jury on these alleged deeds.
"After a trial of 8 hours, the jury found a verdict for the plaintiffs, with the full approbation of the judge. By this verdict, the plaintiffs (5 in number) are restored to an estate of £300 a year, of which, for 25 years, they have been denied by their uncle.
Readers of Charles DICKENS may already be familiar with this case - he cited this press report of it virtually verbatim in Chapter 6 of his "A Long Lane," first published in April 1865, the third of four "books" comprising his last published and completed novel, "Our Mutual Friend."
EXHIBIT 4 - A WILL DATED 1795 AND PROVED IN 1803.
BALDWIN, Jonathan, Maryborough, Queen's County, Gent. Will dated 21 October 1795, proved 5 May 1803.
"An annuity to my wife Jane BALDWIN, charged on my house in Maryborough wherein George PRINGLE now lives, and my freehold farm Rossnadough, after his decease. My estate real and personal to be divided by my executors between my daughters, Mrs Mary KNAGGS, Mrs Jane LAWLER, Harriet BALDWIN and Alicia BALDWIN, subject to the annuity to my wife.
"Executors Rev John BALDWIN, Castle Cuffe, and Rev Stephen FLETCHER, Maryborough.

[Memorial Number 368015, Volume 77, Page 556 Deeds Registry, Henrietta Street, Dublin.]
Curiously, in the MEREDITH family abstracts of the Maryborough Parish Register (for the period dating from 1799), there is no corresponding burial entry for Jonathan BALDWIN until 4 January 1805, clearly too late for a probate in 1803.
EXHIBIT 5 - A LEIGHLIN DIOCESAN WILL, DATED 1805.
Richard BALDWIN, of Doon, Queen's County, made his will on 23 August 1804:
"In the name of God, Amen, I, Richard BALDWIN, of Doon, in the Queen's County, Gent, considering the uncertainty of this life do make this my last will and testament in manner following.

EXHIBIT 6 - A DEED OF LEASE DATED 1751.
The Deeds Registry, in Henrietta Street, Dublin, commenced registering all property transactions in Ireland in 1708, and Registry clerks made copies of these deeds in large Memorial volumes as they were registered, in order to facilitate the indexing of them. These Memorial books are accessible to the researching public, although they are not for the faint-hearted, being sufficiently large and heavy to be referred to, less than affectionately, as "Tombstones" - with the top shelf volumes being a trial, and somewhat of an occupational health hazard, and not just for the elderly and the frail!
In Book Number 153, at page 509, is recorded Memorial Number 103507, as follows (with abbreviations filled in, some additional punctuation, and the dates simplified into numerics):
"PIGOTT to BALDWIN.
"A Memorial of an Indented Deed of Lease dated 15 June 1751.
"Whereby Emanuel PIGOTT of Chetwind in the County of the City of Cork, Esqr, did, for the considerations therein mentioned, demise and sell unto Joseph BALDWIN of Dysart in the Queen's County, Gent, all that and those the Towns and Lands of Dysart, Loughahoe and Coolnecarrig, and also the Rectorial and Impropriate Tythes of Dysart and the bog of Moneybawn and also the profits and tolls of and belonging to the two fairs held every year on said Lands of Dysart, together with all and singular the Appurtenances to said Lands belonging or appertaining, except as therein excepted.
"To hold to the said Joseph BALDWIN, his heirs and assigns, from thenceforth, during the natural lives of John BALDWIN, Jonathan BALDWIN and Joseph BALDWIN, sons of the said Joseph BALDWIN party thereunto, and for and during the natural life of the longest liver of them.
"Which Indenture is witnessed by William CARDEN of Lismore in the Queen's County, William HANDCOCK of Clonruskin, Esqr, and by Richard SWORDS of Maryborough in the said County, Gent; and this memorial is witnessed by the said William HANDCOCK and by Richard Sheffield CASSAN of Sheffield in the Queen's County.
"The signature and seal of Joseph BALDWIN.
"Signed and sealed in the presence of us, Wm HANDCOCK, Rich'd Sheffield CASSAN.
Sworn by Wm HANDCOCK.
"Sworn before me on 5 June, 1752, at or near a Quarter of an hour after 10 o'clock in the forenoon of the said day, James SAUNDERS, Deputy Registrar."
Loughahoe may have been Loughaboe.
William CARDEN of Lismore, Queen's County, was (by his marriage to Gertrude WARBURTON, whose mother was a PIGOTT) related to Emanuel PIGOTT of Chetwynd, County Cork (his third wife was Gertrude's sister Judith WARBURTON), and to George PIGOTT (Emanuel's son and heir by his first wife Lucy ROGERS) of County Cork (he was married to yet another sister, Jane WARBURTON); William had a daughter Priscilla CARDEN who, in 1763 (the year after Emanuel's death), married Thomas PIGOTT of Knapton in the Queen's County (George and Jane's son, and Emanuel's grandson). Just a little bit complicated, in the Protestant Irish tradition!
Richard Sheffield CASSAN was a grandson of Jonathan BALDWIN of Summerhill, near Maryborough.
And William HANDCOCK was probably the one who was married in December 1738 to Mary BALDWIN, Joseph's daughter.
I. BALDWIN OF THE QUEEN’S COUNTY.
John BALDWIN, born about 1645, probably in Lancashire; said to have arrived in Ireland about the 1650's, and thought by some descendants to have accompanied CROMWELL, but his age suggests he was probably either with his father, or followed him over; he was already settled at Agha Harna (alias Summerhill), in the Queen’s County, in 1678 [all the foregoing from W.B.'s 1918 "Genealogy..." at page 67]; perhaps, as Jonas BALDWIN, of Maryborough, Gent, 1714, he was witness to a deed (Memorial Number 17297), being Articles of Agreement dated 23 March 1714 (registered on 29 November 1720), between Daniel BYRNE and Ed. DODGEWORTH - one of the witnesses to the Memorial (1720) was Jonathan BALDWIN (probably his son); John died in April 1715, aged 68 [W.B.’s “Genealogy…,” 1918, at page 72] - however, the Phillimore and Thrift Index to Leighlin Probates records the date as 1713; he was married, in 1676, to Rebecca FREND, daughter of Captain John FREND of Boskill, County Limerick (son of John FREND, who died in 1676, and his wife Jane -their youngest son, Benjamin FREND, of Boskell, married a daughter of Rev John PADFIELD, of Ballintemple, Prebendary of Dysart).
John and Rebecca had issue, including:
1. Jonathan BALDWIN, born before 1682, of Summerhill. See [A] below.
2. Joseph BALDWIN, born about 1690, of Dysart. See [E] below.
3. John BALDWIN, of Castlecuffe, Queen’s County. See [H] below.
BALDWIN OF SUMMERHILL, NEAR MARYBOROUGH.
[A] Jonathan BALDWIN, born before 1682; of Cool Kerry, and of Summer Hill (on the road from Maryborough to Stradbally, on the way to Kilminchy, near Maryborough), both in the Queen's County, Esq; Gent, when he was recorded as second party (the grantee) in a deed of lease, dated 28 November 1709 [Memorial number 960, Dublin Deeds Registry], concerning lands in Ballyteague, in the Queen’s County, and a tenement in Maryborough, for a term of three lives, the first being himself, and the other two being his wife Alice BALDWIN, and his brother Joseph BALDWIN then aged 19 years, the grantor being Henry WESTENRA of the City of Dublin, Esq; Jonathan, of Maryborough was witness to a deed dated 21 March 1717 [Memorial Number 10801], being the Marriage Settlements for Edward DODSWORTH, of Maryborough, and Judith PRITTIE - the other witness was Bartholomew SENIOR, also of Maryborough; Jonathan BALDWIN of Maryborough, Gent, was named in a Deed of Renewal, dated 28 March 1717, as one of the executors of Jeremiah BRIDGES, late of the City of Dublin, deceased, the other executors being his widow Mary BRIDGES (now wife of Thomas BAMBRICK of Dublin, Gent) and John DESPARD of Carrstown, Queen's County - the deed concerned renewal of leases on tenements in Dolphin's Barn which John KILTON of Dolphin's Barn held by a lease of the late Jeremiah BRIDGES dated 1710 [Memorial Number 17160, Deeds Registry]; by a deed dated 20 January 1719, William DESPARD conveyed certain estates in Queen’s County to Jonathan BALDWIN as sole trustee, for the purposes of raising money for paying DESPARD’s debts [PRONI - D/3000/27/1; FALKINER Genealogical Notes]; probably also named in a deed poll, dated May 1723, of Richard WHITE of Whiddy Island, County Cork, as Jonathan of Maryborough, Gent, and as an executor of the will of William DESPARD, Esq, deceased [Memorial Number 960, Dublin Deeds Registry] - one of the witnesses was Jeremiah BRIDGES of the City of Dublin, Gent.
Johnathan BALDWIN, of Maryborough, Queen's County, was grantee of a Deed of Lease, dated 1730, by which Brooke BRIDGES, of the Parish of St Andrew, Holborn, Msx, leased him the lands of Porlad (?), in the Barony of Maryborough, for the fixed term of 31 years, witnessed by Matthew CASSAN and Robert BALDWIN [Memorial Number 44372].
Jonathan BALDWIN was a signatory to a Bill before the Parliament in Dublin, 1731, for the construction of a new turnpike road from Naas to Maryborough - other signatories included Matthew CASSON, Emanuel PIGOTT and five other members of the extended PIGOTT family; and he was named as Tithe-taker, 1731, for collection unpaid tithes owed by Quakers, under the Impropriator Emanuel PIGOTT, and his Rector, Rev John PIGOTT.
Jonathan BALDWIN was grantee of a lease, dated 2 February 1731 [1835 Chancery Court case - the Deeds Registry Memorial not yet sighted], for an unspecified property in or near Maryborough, from Brook BRIDGES, of Wallington Manor, Surrey, for a term of three lives, the first life being his own, with two other lives not yet clearly established, but both inevitably close BALDWIN relations, and probably his brother Robert, and perhaps another brother, or a son or a nephew, who died in 1780 (these identities will be recorded in the appropriate property deed); Jonathan died in 1770 [1835 Chancery Court case - the W.B. "genealogy...", 1918, records only one BALDWIN death in 1770, but it was Thomas, and not Jonathan], when his interest in the 1731 leasehold property devolved onto his nephew James BALDWIN, son of Robert BALDWIN.
Jonathan’s will, dated 7 September 1748, was proved in the Prerogative Court of Ireland on 21 February 1748-49, of Summerhill, Gent, naming his wife Alice, daughter Ursula (wife of Will. MASON), daughter Mary, and son Robert, daughter Margaret (wife of James HILL), daughter Jane (wife of Richard EVANS, Apothecary), and daughter Elizabeth [BETHAM's Abstracts].
Jonathan was married in 1703 to Alice DESPARD [PRONI - D/3000/27/1; FALKINER Genealogical Notes], “…a lady of Huguenot ancestry” [W.B., “Genealogy,” 1918], and a daughter of William DESPARD, M.P., and his wife Frances ROE, daughter of William ROE of Roe’s Green, County Tipperary, by his wife Jane Green (daughter of Samuel GREEN) - although another pedigree records her parents as William DESPARD and Frances GREEN, daughter of Samuel GREEN [“History of the Irish Parliament, 1692-1800,” edited by E.M. Johnson LIIK, 2007]; her will was proved at Leighlin Diocese in 1767, a widow.
Jonathan and Alice had issue:
1. Robert BALDWIN. See [B] below.
2. Henry BALDWIN. See [C] below.
3. Ann BALDWIN, probably born about 1700; died before 1742; she married, as his first wife, Matthew CASSAN (born 1693 - he married secondly in 1742, Christina WALSH of Jamaica, with further issue); with issue by Ann:

7. Elizabeth BALDWIN; married Mr SUTLIFFE (perhaps ? SUTCLIFFE).
8. Mary BALDWIN; unmarried.
[B] Robert BALDWIN, born in or before 1704; probably of Summer Hill, Queen's County; perhaps the third life for term in the 1731 leasehold granted to Jonathan BALDWIN; probably of Coolkerry, Gent, when he witnessed the will of Joseph CHAMBERLAIN of Knockfynn, Queen’s County, 16 September 1744; probably the Robert BALDWIN, of Coolkerry, 1760, under the political influence of "...Mr DAWSON chiefly" ["A Handlist of Voters for Maryborough," by F. KEARNEY]; County Magistrate, Queen's County, 1776 [from Hanaper and Records Office, Dublin - as listed in "History of the Queen's County, compiled chiefly from the papers of the late Rev John Canon O'HANLON," by Edward O'LEARY and Matthew LALOR, 1914, Volume 2, Appendix IV, at page 787]; his will, dated March 1782, in which he demised his estates to the children of his youngest son, was concealed by his eldest son for 21 years, so depriving his nieces and nephews of their lawful inheritance; it is said that Robert's faculties failed him, and he died in April 1784, above 80 years old [Daily Newspaper, 11 August 1809 - replicated in a substantial part by Charles DICKENS in his last published novel, "Our Mutual Friend" in April 1865, as Chapter 6 of the third book, "A Long Street"].
Robert was married in 1731 to Isabella CAMPBELL; with issue:

John BALDWIN, born about 1734 [W.B., 1918] as second son, but indicated in a Maryborough Assizes hearing as the youngest son; favoured in the inheritance of the family estates in his father’s will; evidently dead before December 1804; he was married in 1771, to Margaret HANDCOCK; with issue five children living 1809, probably as adults (Plaintiffs in the case brought against their uncle in Maryborough Assizes in that year), including:

3. Jonathan BALDWIN, born in 1736, the third son [W.B., 1918]; he was possibly granted, by deed dated 25 May 1742, the lease, for a term of three lives renewable, the lands of Castleflemin, Monomendragh or Shianderry, being part of Castleflemin, and the moiety of Leigaragh, all in the barony of Upper Ossory, Queen's County (but at age 6 , this appears unlikely - unless he was one of the lives for term); Jonathan was the second of three lives for term of a Lease dated December 1784; died on 1 January 1805, and was buried at Maryborough Parish Churchyard on 4 January; his will dated 23 December 1804, of Maryborough, bequeathing his wife Frances BALDWIN the sum of 1s. 1d. sterling, she already having a jointure of £60 a year settled on her marriage, and leaving his property to his only daughter Mary, the wife of Benjamin CLEGG, as well as cash bequest of £300 to his youngest granddaughter Frances CLEGG at 21 or marriage, and in default to his other three CLEGG grandchildren, or in default to the children living of his brother James BALDWIN of Summerhill, and of his late brother John BALDWIN, deceased; of Summerhill, Queen's County, Esq, when he was married (M.L.B. Diocese of Dublin) on 18 November 1770, to Frances FITZGERALD, of the Parish of St James's, Dublin, Spinster [BETHAM's Abstracts]; as Mrs Frances BALDWIN, she was buried at Maryborough, 30 October 1818; they had issue:

7. Susan BALDWIN; married her cousin James BALDWIN of Summerhill. See [D] next.
[D] James BALDWIN, born 1732 [W.B., 1918 - but he records his marriage in error as 1735]; perhaps born earlier, about 1725?; of Summerhill, Queen’s County; acquired in 1770 his uncle Jonathan’s interest in the 1731 leasehold property; by indentures of lease and release dated 21 and 22 December 1784, James was grantee of the renewal of the 1731 lease, perfected by Brook BRIDGES, heir of William Brook BRIDGES, again for the term of three lives, the first being himself, the second Jonathan BALDWIN Junior (probably his brother), and the third Robert BALDWIN (perhaps his son); he was by-passed in the inheritance of other family property in his father’s will, but instead of accepting his lot, he concealed the will, and convinced his wider family that there had never been one; in 1808, James, under a power confirmed in articles executed on his marriage, appointed the premises (which were subject of the 1731 Lease and 1784 re-lease) to his sons, Robert and Edward BALDWIN (they were plaintiffs in a Court of Chancery case involving debts on the property, and heard in Dublin in 1835) as tenants in common; James was the defendant in a case brought before the Maryborough Assizes, 1809, concerning his father's will which went "missing" for 21 years; he was buried at Maryborough parish Churchyard on 5 September 1818, aged about 93 years.
James married firstly, his cousin Susannah BALDWIN (daughter of Henry BALDWIN and Margaret HOMAN - see [C] above); she was buried in Maryborough Parish Churchyard on 30 October 1802, as the “…wife of James BALDWIN, Esq, of Summerhill” [Maryborough Parish Register - abstracted on a MEREDITH family history web-site]; with issue:
1. Robert BALDWIN, probably born about 1776; he and his brother remonstrated with his father over his second marriage; joint plaintiff in a cause brought before the Marlborough Assizes, 1809, concerning his father’s concealing of Robert BALDWIN Senior’s 1784 will; he was the Robert BALDWIN, late Lieutenant, 71st Foot, a distinguished Officer in the Peninsular Campaign, who died at Maryborough in December 1835 [Saunders Newsletter, 17 December], and was buried at Maryborough churchyard, 13 December, aged 57, “… of the parish”; he married in 1817, Elizabeth HADLEY [W.B., 1918, page 69]; she died at Rockcorry in November 1867, aged 67 [Cork Examiner, 19 November].
2. Edward BALDWIN; when his father reacted to the said remonstration by making a will in which he disinherited his older son Robert, Edward broke open his father's desk to destroy the will, but instead found their grandfather's long lost will, and consequently informed his cousins of their deprivation, as well as their uncle John, presumably their cousin's father; joint plaintiff, with his brother Robert, at the Marlborough Assizes, 1809; probably E. BALDWIN, Esq, Lieutenant in the Leitrim Militia, son of James BALDWIN of Summer Hill, Queen’s County, who married in May 1808, Anne (O')LEARY, daughter of George LEARY, Esq, M.D. [Dublin Evening Post, 28 May]; issue:
a. Henry P. H. BALDWIN, born 1818; died without male issue.
b. Robert BALDWIN; died without issue.
c. Mary Anne BALDWIN; married in 1833, George O'LEARY.
d. Susan BALDWIN; married S. K. CASHILL.
e. Caroline BALDWIN; married Henry EYRE.
James, "...soon after" the death of his first wife Susannah, and at the age of 78 (about 1803), was married secondly "...to a very young woman" named Elizabeth; this late-in-life marriage caused great anxiety among his sons, "…whose poignant expressions of this feeling so exasperated their father that he, in his resentment, executed his will to disinherit his eldest son Robert, and in his fit of anger, showed it to his second son Edward, who instantly determined to get at it and destroy it”; there was evidently no issue of this marriage; Elizabeth married secondly, aged 39, to Robert FITZGERALD of Dysart, with issue a son and a daughter.
Curiously, a James BALDWIN had issue by Elizabeth DOUGLAS:
1. Mary BALDWIN, baptised at Maryborough, 11 July 1803.
Another James BALDWIN (or perhaps the above with yet another marriage, unless his wife Elizabeth was using an alias) had issue by Elizabeth ROBERTS:
2. Frederick BALDWIN, baptised at Maryborough, 26 May 1805.
3. Amelia BALDWIN, baptised at Maryborough, 24 July 1806.
4. David BALDWIN, baptised at Maryborough, 25 July 1808.
5. William BALDWIN, baptised at Maryborough, 15 December 1809.

OTHER BALDWIN FAMILIES IN IRELAND.
As a prelude to identifying these, it might be useful to learn something of them from the pen of F.R. Montgomery HITCHCOCK, M.A., in his "The Midland Septs and the Pale: an account of the early septs and later settlers of the King's County and of life in the English Pale," Dublin, 1908, in the Appendix, at page 229; he wrote:
"Corolanty, now the seat of Edward Francis SAUNDERS, Esq ..., was built about 1698 by John BALDWIN, who belonged to a Warwickshire family, got a grant of land at Shinrone, and was High Sheriff of King's County in 1672.
"John BALDWIN Junior, High Sheriff in 1697, survived his father less than a year, and died in 1699, leaving, with other children, Thomas BALDWIN his heir, Mary the wife of Edward CROW of Spruce Hall, County Galway (married 1700), and Catherine the wife of Thomas MEREDYTH, of Newtown, County Meath, M.P. (married 1704).
"Thomas BALDWIN, who succeeded to Corolanty, was born in 1679 and died in 1732, leaving by his wife Mary EYRE, of Eyrecourt, two sons and five daughters, viz't - John BALDWIN; Thomas BALDWIN, Attorney-General for Jamaica; Margery, married 1718 Charles SADLIER of Castletown, County Tipperary,; and Lucy, who died unmarried in 1768.
"John BALDWIN, the son and heir, dissipated the estate and died without issue in 1754. and his widow married secondly to Hervey, Lord Mountnorris.
"Part of the Corolanty property came into possession of Dr Richard BALDWIN, Provost of Trinity College, Dublin, who died in 1758, leaving the whole of his large fortune to the university. Though his parentage has been the subject of dispute, he was not in any way related either to the Corolanty family, or the Queen's County BALDWIN's, or to the BALDWIN's of Dublin, who subsequently settled at Boveen, near Shrinone.
"Sir Bridges BALDWIN of Dublin, Knight, who died in 1765, was nephew of Richard BALDWIN of Dublin (died 1768), from whom the BALDWIN-HAMILTON's derive. This Richard BALDWIN had an only son, Richard, of the Four Crosses, County Wicklow, High Sheriff in 1756, who was father of Colonel Charles BALDWIN of Boveen, High Sheriff of King's County in 1802. By his wife, Miss BARRY, only daughter of the celebrated Dublin Doctor, Colonel Charles BALDWIN left an only son, Charles Barry BALDWIN of Boveen, M.P."

Charlotte BALDWIN, born before 1722, inevitably related to the above family; she was living in 1764, when named in Wicklow Papers [MS 38,574/5], as Charlotte SCHAW otherwise BALDWIN, having been one of the subjects of a deed search in the registry office, concerning lands at Kilmagig, Croneconnelly, Ballydonnell alias Redcross, in County Wicklow, premises in Dublin, and lands in the King’s County (also named were Frederick Bridges SHAW in 1780, Richard SCHAW in 1788, Frederick David SCHAW in 1800, among others); she married William SCHAW (born 1705, son of Robert SCHAW); he was Physician to Frederick, Prince of Wales

3. Jonathan BALDWIN, baptised St Nicholas Without, Dublin, 2 February 1766.
Bridges BALDWIN; a nephew of Richard BALDWIN of Dublin (see above - he died in 1768) ["The Midland Septs and the Pale, etc," by F.R. Montgomery HITCHCOCK, M.A., Dublin, 1908, page 229]; Bridges was named of the will, dated 30 April 1743, of his great-aunt Elizabeth BRIDGES, of Wallington Manor, Surrey, who died in 1745, a spinster - she was a relation of the Brook BRIDGES family of Baronets, which would in time include the defendant in the 1835 Chancery Court case recorded above (the BRIDGES family at Wallington were originally from Ireland); Brooke BRIDGES was created Knight (details not yet established); Sir Bridges BALDWIN registered a deed in 1750 concerning lands in County Wicklow (among which were Kilmagigg, Croneconnelly, Ballydonnell or Redcross), in County Dublin (a dwelling house in Weystown, and dwellings in Church Street and StJames's Street), and in King's County (he was named, among others, in a deeds search undertaken in October 1805) [MS 38,574/5 - Wicklow Papers, N.L.I.]; his will was dated 13 Feb 1745, naming his wife Frances NEYNOE, and mentioning Rev Charles BALDWIN, Clerk, of the City of Dublin; Sir Bridges died at his residence, Frederick Street, Dublin, "...a few days ago" and was buried at St Nicholas Without, "...on Thursday" [Faulkner's Journal, Tuesday 17 to Saturday 21 September 1765]; his will was proved P.C.C., 29 November 1765; Bridges BALDWIN, of Dublin, Esq, and Frances NEYNOE, Marriage License Bond, Diocese of Dublin, 3 May 1738 [Fisher Mss, National Library of Ireland - Digital resources].
Elizabeth BRIDGES was the sister and sole heir of William BRIDGES, Surveyor-general of the Ordnance, who died in 1714; it appears that she was somehow related to the Baronets of Goodnestone, Kent, as her estate was to go to Bridges BALDWIN in default of issue male of two of her other grand-nephews, Samuel BRIDGES (he died without issue) and William BRIDGES, Esq, who died in 1805, leaving Wallington Manor to Brook BRIDGES - and he was inevitably related to Sir Brook BRIDGES, who had property in the Queen’s County which was leased to members of the BALDWIN family of Maryborough.

(afterwards Viscount Mountmorres) ["Genealogical Memoirs of Members of Parliament for the county and city of Kilkenny," by George Dames BURTCHAELL, 1888, Kilkenny, pages 120 and 138].

A STRAY BALDWIN FROM LANCASHIRE WHO DID WELL IN IRELAND.
Richard BALDWIN, baptised at Colne, Lancashire, 12 June 1671, son of James BALDWIN and Margaret (probably BROWN); went to Colne Grammar School, “…where he is said to have inflicted a mortal blow to a schoolfellow, upon which he fled to Dublin” in about 1684 (one might presume he may have been “sent” to family living there, or just gone there, hoping to connect); “adopted” by a Dublin family, and placed in the service of Dr Robert HUNTINGDON, the Provost of Trinity College; probably finished his education at Trinity College; Provost of Trinity College; died in 758, leaving his large estate to the University (part of which included part of the Corolanty property, although it has been stated that he had no kinship with that branch of the family [“The Midland Septs and the Pale; an Account of the Early Septs and Later Settlers of the King’s County,” by F. R. Montgomery HITCHCOCK, M.A., Dublin, 1808, in the Appendix, at Page 229].
A BALDWIN FAMILY OF PRINTERS IN JAMAICA.

2. Peter BALDWIN; ditto before 1714; letters of Administration, dated 5 February 1746, were granted to John COCHRANE, “Practitioner of Physicke.”
