Enoch was the son of Daniel Coffin Sr. and Mary Harlock. He was a master mariner. He was referred to as "3d" and "Jr." to distinguish him from his uncle and cousin with the same name.

He married Huldah Norton on 2 Mar. 1780 in Edgartown, Dukes Co., MA. They had 7 children, all baptized at Christ Church, Edgartown. In addition to the three linked below, there were:

Mary Coffin (1783-1788); William Coffin (1794-1850), m. Sarah Mayhew; Henry Coffin (1795-1833); and Cordelia A. Coffin (1801-1866), m. Bartlett Allen.

Enoch and his family lived in Kennebec Co., ME, for several years. He died of yellow fever "on passage from West Indies" (VR Edgartown to 1850). He was 43 years old, and left behind 6 children, all minors (though the oldest, Ann/Nancy, was married by the time of his death).
