Elizabeth. I am sorry I can’t help you with your direct family. However I noticed the name William Baldwin and the fact you thought he came from Ireland. I have been researching my Great Grandmothers ancestors who came from Cork, Ireland. She was called Dorothy Baldwin and born in approx 1844. Her family have been a total enigma, as they disowned her for marrying the Gardener at the family home. As far as I know she never had any contact with her family once she married Thomas Gould and moved to England. Because the Irish records are so incomplete it has been virtually impossible to trace her family but I feel sure she must have brothers and sisters. She christened her third son William and her fourth son Godfrey and we think her fathers name was Henry. I was hoping there might be some connection with your family. Have you any other bits of information about William Baldwin family.
