SYLVESTER and SARAH (possibly BRYAN) BALDWIN, and their five children who were all baptized in Aston, Clinton, Bucks, England, left England on the good ship, "Martin". He made a nuncupative (oral) will at sea on June 21, 1638, and he died aboard the ship on the same day. I assume that he was buried at sea since the ship arrived in Boston three weeks later on July 3, 1638. It was proved July 4, 1638 before Dep. Gov. Dudley in Boston making Sarah, his wife, and Richard, his son, executors of his estate. The widow, Sarah, married (2) John Astwood.

He was the son of SYLVESTER, SR. & JANE (WELLS) BALDWIN (from a FAG contributor).

According to FAG contributor, D Mahle: " I do not think John's father is Sylvester. I believe Sylvester Baldwin was John's cousin, not his father. John's father was John Baldwin Sr. born circa 1565 who was a brother to Sylvester's father Sylvester. John's mother was Hannah Birchard Baldwin, born circa 1670. Sylvester did have a son John who went on to marry Rebecca Palmer and settled in Stonington, Connecticut".
