NOTE--By the record at Newark, N. J., it appears that Deacon Lawrence Ward, of Newark,
died in 1670, and left no children; that Elizabeth, wife of Joseph Baldwin, of Hadley, Mass.,
was a sister of said Ward; that said Elizabeth (Ward) Baldwin authorized her son, John Catlin,
and John Ward, ("turners,") of Newark, to act for her in relation to the estate of their uncle,
Lawrence Ward. (S. H. Conger, Esq.) Robert Lyman was a relative of John Catlin, as the Newark record shows.
It appears the first husband of Elizabeth (Ward) Baldwin was CATTELL, CATTEILL, JOHN, of Wethersfield, was a juror at Hartford, in 1644. This fact proves his respectability and character in Wethersfield. The goods of John Catteel were appraised July 17, 1644. He had a home lot and barn, œ12 and six acres in Mile Meadow, and three acres in Great Meadow, and garden, œ12, 12s. in Wethersfield, all presented to the court by the relict and Wm. Gibbons, adm'rs, total œ69; widow's name not given; no family or distribution found, except his relict. I conjecture he might have left an infant son, John, who was afterward the John Catlin who was m. at Wethersfield, and removed to Branford and Newark, in 1667, and changed his name to Catlin, (see JOHN CATLIN,) as the changing of names at that time was not uncommon.
