BALDWIN of ISLE of WIGHT
A William Baldwin was living in Isle of Wight (VA) at the time of the massacre in 1622.The Indians first appeared at the house of George Harrison, half a mile from Baldwin’s.Then they set fire to a tobacco house as a ruse, and as the people rushed out of Harrison’s house in order to quench the flames, many of them were slain.Thomas Hamor was writing a letter and did not go out with the others, but seeing the commotion rushed out and received an arrow in his back.Thereupon he, with twenty-two others, fled to Baldwin’s house, leaving their own to burn.There William Baldwin and the others valiantly defended the house until the Indians gave up and departed.(17 C-35)
Baldwin, the next year, was living at Elizabeth City when the census was taken, evidently having gone there for safety.In February 1645 he was an officer in the Isle of Wight company under Captain John Upton that marched against the Indians and destroyed their corn fields and burned their habitations.(Id – 99)
A William Baldwin, very probably his son, signed a petition to His Majesty in Behalf of Governor Berkeley in 1676 praising his administration.(17 C-161)He was therefore a Loyalist.
He married is Sept. 6, 1679, Mrs. Elizabeth Barlow, widow of Thomas Barlow whose will was recorded April 9, 1679. (BK A-179)As Mrs. Elizabeth Baldwin she presented an inventory of Thomas Barlow’s estate on June 6, 1679. (Id 200)
Mr. Lundie Barlow, in his chapter on the Barlow family which will appear in Volume II of this series, states that Elizabeth was probably a sister of George and Thomas Moore.They were sons of John Moore, Burgess of Isle of Wight 1640 (5V233).John Moore patented 300 acres on the western Branch of Nansemond River March 11, 1664, 200 acres granted John Bryan March 18, 1662, who sold to said Moore and 100 acres for the transportation of John Moore’s wife and John Clarke. (C. P. 480)John Moore probably died in Nansemond leaving wife Ann who afterwards married a Mr. Baron and then Anthony Matthews.
Anthony Matthews and his wife Ann for love and affection to James Baron, son of Ann and son-in-law to Anthony, give him 300 acres on the Blackwater, if said James Baron die the land to John Moore, eldest son to Anne Matthews. (17 C. 572; Admin. and Probate, p. 54; C1 32).John2 Moore, son of John1 Moore and wife Ann, died in 1688, leaving a daughter Elizabeth who was probably the wife of William Baldwin.
William Baldwin was granted 57 acres of land in 1688 and he and his wife Elizabeth sold that in 1693. (17C-109)He died before
