  • Notes 
    • I am indebted to Maurice Taylor for the information regarding Jeremiah (Jemmy) Baldwin. Maurice's Grand Mother, Emily Agnes Naylor (1885 - 1975), the great grand daughter of Jeremiah told his Mother that, " he was black, a Mulatto , and a musician probably a violinist ----------- The family from Colne (Lancs) " The photograph Maurice provided of Caroline Baldwin, his daughter, certainly shows some coloured blood. A Mulatto is strictly speaking one of 1/4 coloured blood but at this time could refer to anyone of mixed race
      The reference to Colne turns out to be where Caroline Baldwin ended her days. After her husband Elisha died it appears she went to live there with one of her two daughters who married into the area, Caroline (Proctor) and Emily (Smith). Many thanks to Darran Walton who's keen eye helped solve this conundrum.
      .
      ********************************************************************** *******
      The evidence of Jeremiah's parentage is convincing although purely circumstantial at present Viz:

      Jeremiah's death was registered by Sarah Chinn and it appears he died at her house.

      In the 1841 Census Birmingham Cheapside, St Martin's Parish at Barford Street
      Jeremiah Baldwin 25 Musician No
      Mary Baldwin 25 No
      *William Baldwin 8 Yes*
      James Baldwin 4 Yes
      Caroline Baldwin 1 Yes
      John Chinn 40 Chainmaker Yes
      Sarah Chinn Not Known No

      *AKA William Henry Walker*

      John Chinn Married Sarah Baldwin, a widow, at St Philip's Birmingham on 19 Dec 1831 and in 1836 witnessed the marriage of Jeremiah to Mary Ann Walker.

      And at St James St Rushall in 1851 Census were :-

      CHINN John HD 53 Chain Maker WAR Birmingham
      CHINN Sarah WI 55 WIL Devizes
      BALDWIN James GS 14 B. Birmingham

      John Chinn was buried St Michaels Rushall 11 3 1855 age 54 address given as Saint James Street, Ryecroft, Walsall; STS

      In the 1861 census at 39 Ann St Rushall Sarah Chinn Widow 65 born Wiltshire Devises
      and James Baldwin Grandson 24 born B'ham

      The marriage certificate of the above James Baldwin quotes " Father Jeremiah, Musician " Witnesses were Caroline Hill nee Baldwin and Elisha Hill her Husband. Her marriage certificate quotes " Father Jem'h Baldwin Fiddler "

      ********************************************************************** *****************
      The Baldwin family seemed to have a interest in Rycroft Walsall before the move there between 1841 and 51, Caroline Jeremiah's sister died there in 1837 although both Jeremiah, his mother and step-father were still in Birmingham.

      Also note the following Burials:-

      Jacob BALDWIN; Wolverhampton Lane; 14 April 1839-10 Months
      Hannah BALDWIN; Wisemore; 30 Sept 1840 - 74 years
      Maria BALDWIN; Wisemore; 7 Sept 1840 - 9 years

      And in the 1841 Census, at Wisemore next door to John Hill, father of Elisha, who subsequently married Jeremiah's daughter, Caroline.

      John Baldwin 76 Ag Lab
      Ann Baldwin 39
      Sarah Baldwin 5
      Sophia Baldwin 10 months
      Elisha Jarvis 14
      All except Sophia were NOT born in county
