Henry Baldwin witnessed the will of John Baldwin of Billerica. They married cousins (both were Richardsons.) Candee Baldwin in the Baldwin Genealogy speculates these two factors could lead one to believe these two men were brothers.

Thomas RICHARDSON [Parents] 1-1422 was christened 2, 3 on 3 Jul 1608 in Westmill, Hertfordshire, England, United Kingdom. He died 4, 5 on 28 Aug 1651 in Woburn, Middlesex, Massachusetts, United States. Thomas married 6 (MRIN:302) Mary RICHARDSON-1423 on 4 Mar 1635 in Charlestown, Suffolk, Massachusetts, United States.

The three brothers, Ezekiel, Samuel and Thomas Richardson, are known as such by the will of Ezekiel, who names the other two as his brothers. Ezekiel, evidently the oldest, was the first to come to New England, and was a planter in Cbarlestown in 1630. His departure previous to the making of the will, perhaps against his father's wishes, or possibly having received his share of his father's small estate, may account for the name of Ezekiel not appearing in the will. His baptism is not found at West Mill. as are the baptisms of Samuel and Thomas. Ezekiel probably came with Winthrop, he and his wife becoming members of the Charlestown church, 27 Aug., 1630. Thomas Richardson, baptized at West mill, 3 July, 1608, had wife Mary, who joined the Charlestown church, 21 Feb., 1635/6, and he joined, 18 Feb., 1637/8. Admitted to the First Church in Charlestown in 1637/8 with his brother Samuel.

Richard CLAPP [scrapbook]-4009 died 1 before 25 Jul 1608 in Sidbury, Devonshire, England, United Kingdom. Richard married 2 (MRIN:309) Christian CLAPP-4010 in Sidbury, Devonshire, England, United Kingdom.

Christian CLAPP-4010 was born 1 about 1540 in Sidbury, Devonshire, England, United Kingdom. She died 2 in BET 25 JUL 1608 AND 12 AUG 1608 in Sidbury, Devonshire, England, United Kingdom. Christian married 3 (MRIN:309) Richard CLAPP-4009 in Sidbury, Devonshire, England, United Kingdom.

Christian had a will 4 in 1608 in Sidbury, Devonshire, England, United Kingdom.

The yeoman family of Clapp was living in the Devonshire parish of Sidbury as early as 1883 whep Roger Clappc was listed in a subsidy, and Clapp's hill is still a place name in the parish after the lapse of six centuries. Unfortunately, the parish register of Sidbury has been destroyed by fire so that it has been impossible to determine the exact relationship which the Clapps who were living in the parish in the late sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries bore to each other. A few Clapp wills in the various probate courts of Devonshire had been abstracted before the Registry at Exeter was totally destroyed in the blitzkrieg, but they do not serve to make a proven pedigree of any great length.
1. CHRISTIAN CLAPP of Sidbury, co. Devon, a grandmother when she made her will in 1608, was probably born about 1540. The name of her husband is not known. She had an only son, Nicholas Clapp, and, as Peter Clapp of Sidbury, husbandman, who made his will in 1622, mentions his brother Nicholas Clapp, there is a possibility that Christian s husband had had an earlier wife who was the mother of Peter Clapp and his brother Robert C]app whom Peter also names in his will. This theory is, of course, dependent on Christian s son and Peter's brother being the same man. In 1555 a William Clapp of Sidbury, but living in the parish of Harforde, made a will leaving legacies to the two children of his son Richard, who appears to have been his only son. One may hazard a guess, based purely on time and place, that Richard Clapp was the husband of our widow Christian, but the family may have, in the interval between 1338 (or earlier) and 1555, produced very distantly related branches even in the same parish, while the wills show that in the neighboring villages there were in the sixteenth century many other representatives of the name. It is safer to begin our pedigree with the lone widow.

Christian Clapp of Sidbury, co. Devon, widow, made her will July 25, 1608, and it was proved August 12, 1608, by the executor Nicholas Clapp of Sidbury. She bequeaths to the poor of Sidbury. To her god-children. To god-daughter dwelling at Broadclist, "one Petecotte with browne charmlet bodyes." To Mary Clapp, a gown. To Elizabeth Clapp, my son Nicholas his *Abstracts of the wills and other English material were kindly supplied to me by Mary Lovering Holman.
