- Hannah Baldwin was the daughter of Nathaniel Baldwin (1645-1714) and Hannah Botsford (1645-1686). The ancestry on the Baldwin side dates back to Richard Baldwin of Cholesbury, Buckinghamshire, England, who died in 1553. His great grandson, the grandfather of Hannah, Esther, and Elizabeth, born in Cholesbury, England, came to America and settled in Milford, Connecticut, where he died in 1650. Nathaniel Baldwin was a quite successful and prominent man at Milford. Hannah Botsford/Botchford was the daughter of Henry Botchford of Milford, one of the pioneer settlers.
