The search for the Baldwins

with No Comments

Last time I mentioned the Baldwin’s it was in connection with Mary Ann Longton and her family. I still don’t have the marriage certificate or record for her and Thomas Baldwin but a Lancashire BMD search tells me that they married in 1908:

BALDWIN / Thomas / LONGTON / Mary Anne / Parish Church, Coppull / Preston, C12/2/56

BALDWIN / Janet / Chorley / Preston / LONGTON / CHO/127/60

I then decided that since I only knew of their daughter Janet and seeing as she came up in the BMD search I should have a go at finding other Baldwin children from Chorley whose mothers maiden name is Longton in the period between the parents marriage and Mary Ann reaching 45. So between 1908 and 1930. This is what I found:

In 1908: BALDWIN / Evelyn / Chorley / Preston / LONGTON / CHO/112/3
In 1912: BALDWIN / James / Chorley / Preston / LONGTON / CHO/118/98
in 1914: BALDWIN / Arthur / Chorley / Preston / LONGTON / CHO/123/2

If anyone else is researching the Baldwins or Coppull I would love to hear from you.
