Thank you for your response to the famous Stanley Baldwin connection. I wonder how many other Baldwin families around the world have had stories passed down to them about being related to a famous British Prime Minister.I spent a good year trying to find the connection with no luck at the end of it. My search was not in vain as I found that in fact that my Great Great Grandmother which is where the connection is meant to be was in fact a ‘Bird’. Her father was Samuel Baldwin Bird. For some reason he had all his children christened Baldwin. So for me that is where the trail ends. If there were a link it would have to be through Samuel’s mother. As yet I have not been able to find out any information on his line.
Anyway getting back to your question. If your Gt Grandmother was a cousin of Stanley you would have to check his parents line for the connection. With Stanley being made a Earl, his line is quite easy to find in the Peerage & Baronetage. Give me a few days and I will try and dig out the information for you.
