MARY3 WELLES (GOVERNORTHOMAS2, THOMAS1) was born 1618 in Norhamptonshire, England ?, and died 31 Jul 1647 in Milford, Connecticut ?. She married TIMOTHY BALDWIN, son of RICHARD BALDWIN and ISABELL HARDING. He was born Abt. 1605 in Cholesbury, Buckinghamshire, England, and died 17 Jan 1684/85 in Milford, Connecticut. Notes for MARY WELLES: Mary (Welles) Baldwin and her husband Timothy Baldwin joined church at Milford, Connecticut in 1643. After Mary's death in 1647, Timothy then married Mary Mepham, widow of John Mepham of Guilford, Connecticut, and related to Governor Fenwick. They lived in Guilford for a time, and then in 1651 or 1652, they moved back to Milford. Timothy died the night following January 17, 1665. Mary was the mother of three children, and her husband had three more children in his second marriage [Abigail Baldwin, bpt 29 Dec 1650, d 1660; Anne Baldwin, b 1 Jul 1655, d 21 Jul 1655; Timothy Baldwin, b 12 Jun 1658, d 8 Dec 1703 and m Mary Beard, daughter of John and Anna [or Hannah] (Hawley) Beard. Hannah was a sister of our ancestor Joseph Hawley.] Children of Mary (Welles) and Timothy Baldwin: 1 Mary Baldwin, bapt 2 Apr 1643; m 21 Oct 1660 Benjamin Smith. She was buried 3 Aug 1680. They had seven children. 2 HANNAH BALDWIN, bapt Aug 1644; m 12 Dec 1667 Elnathan Botsford. They had ten children. 3 Sarah Baldwin, bapt Aug 1645; m 14 Dec 1663 Samuel Buckingham. They had ten children. Notes for TIMOTHY BALDWIN: TIMOTHY BALDWIN, eldest son of Richard of Cholesbury, is first reported in Milford, Connecticut in 1639. He and his wife Mary Welles joined church there in 1643. Mary was the daughter of Thomas and Alice (Tomes) Welles, Thomas Welles becoming governor of Connecticut a few years after Mary (Welles) Baldwin's death. Thomas Welles m (2) Elizabeth (Deming) Foote--one of our ancestors. Mary (Welles) Baldwin died 31 Jul 1647. Timothy then married Mary Mepham, widow of John Mepham of Guilford, Connecticut. She was related to Governor Fenwick. They lived in Guilford for a time, and then in 1651 or 1652, they moved back to Milford. Timothy died the night following January 17, 1665. Timothy was the father of six children, three from his first marriage and three from his second. Our descent from TIMOTHY BALDWIN and MARY WELLES is through daughter HANNAH BALDWIN who married Elnathan Botsford. The LDS Ancestral File includes a pedigree of Timothy Baldwin. The following chart based on that differs from the pedigree of Timothy' brother Joseph. Richard Aylesbury had a daughter Jane Aylesbury b 1443. She m William Baldwin, b 1441. They had a son: John Baldwin, 1470-1545 who married Agnes Dormer, b ca 1482. Agnes was the daughter of William Dormer, b ca 1438 and Jane or Agnes Launcelyn b ca 1460. William Dormer was the son of Geoffrey 'Dormer and Urssula or Ethyld Collinridge. Jane or Agnes Launcelyn was the daughter of John and Margaret Launcelyn. TIMOTHY BALDWIN 1605- m (1) Mary Welles, 1618-1647 m (2) Mary Mepham, widow of John Mepham The name Aylesbury looks dubious as a family name. Aylesbury is the name of a town in Buckinghamshire, not far north of Cholesbury. The name appears in the Domesday Book of 1174, but it goes back at least to 571 A.D. Perhaps the LDS researcher confused the place name with a family name. Jane Aylesbury is listed as born in 1443 at Oterarsfee, Buckinghamshire. No such place name exists today. Jane's husband, William Baldwin, is said to have been born at Aylesbury in 1441. William and Jane Baldwin's son John Baldwin was born 11 Aug 1470 at Aylesbury, and he died 24 Oct 1545. His wife Agnes Dormer was born in 1482 and came from Wycombe in Buckinghamshire. Agnes Dormer's father, William Dormer, was born in about 1438 at Wycombe. Her mother, Jane or Agnes Launcelyn was born in about 1460 at Launcelynbury in Hampshire. Launcelynbury appears in no map index available, though a detailed search of a map of Hampshire might show it as a very small place. The similarity of the place name with the family name does raise a question about the authenticity of one or both. John and Agnes (Dormer) Baldwin's son Richard was born in 1503 and died in 1552 or 1553. He married at Aston Clinton, there in the heart of Baldwin country, Ellen Apuke, and he died at Dundridge Parish. This is, then the same Richard Baldwin that C. C. Baldwin wrote about in his Baldwin genealogy. According to the Timothy Baldwin pedigree, Richard and Ellen were the parents of the Richard Baldwin who married Isabell Harding, and Richard and Isabell were the parents of Timothy. That pedigree also indicates that Richard, father of Timothy, died 18 Feb 1632, and that date is several months earlier than the date given in Joseph Baldwin's pedigree data. Further, from other sources we know that the Richard who married Ellen Apuke lived at Dundridge Manor--at least a large farmhouse--and it seems unlikely that their son would be a weaver at Cholesbury.
