    Notes 
    • Richard Baldwin, of Cholesbury, weaver, made his will, dated 23 May 1630. He gave his wife Isabell one-third of his goods and chattels; to his son Nathaniel £10; to his son Joseph, when twenty-one, one half acre of land, called Hunt's Wick; to his daughter, Mary Pratt, 6s. 8d.; to her dau. Mary two sheep, and to her other two children each a sheep; to his dau. Hannah £13 6s 8d.; and to his other daughters, Christian and Sarah, each £10 when twenty-one or married; all the rest to his son Timothy, who was his executor, and proved the will in the Court of the Archdeaconry of Bucks, 16 May 1633. Although the last Richard evidently could not have been the one who had Cholesbury lands in 1552 or 1553, it seems not unlikely that he was his son. Mr. Chester can find no traces of the three sons, Timothy, Nathaniel and Joseph, after the probate in 1633. He thinks there can be but little if any doubt that they are the ones who emigrated to New England, appearing in 1639 in Milford, Connecticut, with the other Baldwins form Ashton Clinton. [2]
