According to Clifford L. Stott (FASG), author of "Sylvester and Jane
(Wells) Baldwin, Parents of the Immigrant Sylvester Baldwin," in The
Genealogist (Vol. ii, No. 1--Spring 1997), the ancestors of the
immigrant are known for 4 generations. The first three, Sylvester,
Henry, and Richard, are to be found in Charles Candee Baldwin's The
Baldwin Genealogy From 1500 to 1881 (pub. 1881). See also, Joseph L.
Chester's "Report of Investigations Concerning the Famiuly of Baldwin of
Aston Clinton, co. Bucks." in NEHGR, vol. 38 (1884), pp. 160-70, 289-99,

The discovery of Richard's father, Robert, is discussed in G. Andrew
Moriarty, "Baldwin of Bucks and Connecticut," NEHGR 110 (1956), p. 310.
