  3. [S324] Col. Joseph L. Chester, "Family of Baldwin": p. 163, full abstract of the will of Ellen Apuke: "To be buried in the church yard of Aston Clinton—to the poor there 12d, & to the poor of Cholsbury 12d—to each of my god-children 4 pence—to each of my childrens’ children 4 pence—to each of my daughters Cecilye and Lettys sundry linen, household stuff, &c. when married. they to be guided in their marriage by my cousin George Baldwin—to Richard and Sylvester, children of my son Henry Baldwin, each 12 pence—residue of personalty to my son John Baldwin, and he to be my executor—overseer, my son Henry Baldwin."
    As to the date of the will and of Ellen's death, "The original will of the widow Ellen is among the records of the Court of the Archdeaconry of Bucks. but the probate act is missing. so that it is impossible to determine exactly when it was proved, and thus obtain the approximate date of her death. The date is the 24th of some month [the paper just here eaten or torn away] in the 8th year of Queen Elizabeth. The exact date may therefore have been the 24th of November, 1565, or the 24th of any month thereafter down to 24th October, 1566. She signed her name “Elyn Baldwin,” and described herself as of “ Donrich,” in the parish of Aston Clinton, co. Bucks, widow."
  4. [S324] Col. Joseph L. Chester, "Family of Baldwin": p. 168; Christian, wife of Richard Baldwin, had her will "proved in the Archdeaconry Court of Bucks, 27 July, 1641, but her burial is not in the Aston Clinton register, and she was probably buried with her own family, to which the will gives no clew, except that she had a sister Joane, evidently then a widow, but who had had two husbands, named Grover and Chase. She was married to Richard Baldwin at Cholesbury in 1592, as Christian Towckfeild, i. e. Tuckfield.
