Biography

Baldwin "the bad" Fulford was the son and heir of Baldwin Fulford and Anna Adams. He was born 15 November 1801 at Bowden in the parish of Totnes.[1][2]

He attended Blundell's School in Devon from 17 August 1810 to 29 June 1817.[3] He matriculated at Exeter College, Oxford on 19 February 1822, aged 20, and proceeded B.A. in 1825.[4]

He was a Justice of the Peace for Devon, Colonel of the 1st Royal Devon Yeomanry and by 1851 a Magistrate. On 6 June 1841, he was living at Littleham in Devon.[5] In 1847, on the death of his father, he inherited Great Fulford and was living there 30 March 1851.[6] By 7 April 1861 he was living in High Street, Exeter.[7]

Baldwin the Bad, like his great uncle Squire John, vastly over spent his income. In 1861 he had accumulated over £60,000 of debts (approx. £6.0 million today) and had to flee the country.[8]

On 8 October 1868, aged 67, he married Anna Isabella Giles at Sutton by Croydon in Surrey.[9][10][11] They did not have any children. On 2 April 1871, the couple were living at Dinghurst, Winscombe, Somerset.[12] Exactly one month later, Baldwin died at Oxford House, Weston-super-Mare, Somerset.[13][14][15]

His monumental brass survives in Dunsford Church inscribed in Latin as follows:

In hoc caemeterio cum longa serie majorum sepultus jacet Baldewinus de Fulford Baldewini et Annae Mariae filius et haeres, Regni et Ecclesiae Anglicanae (sicut omnes eius proavi) egregius defensator. Obiit Westoniae SM die mensis Maii secundo AD 1871. Uxor eius Anna Isabella amantissima et amatissima vitream hanc fenestram in memoriam poni curavit. O Baldewine magnum es mihi desiderium!".

English translation:

In this cemetery with a long line of his elders lies buried Baldwin de Fulford, son and heir of Baldwin and of Anna Maria. An outstanding defender (just as were all his ancestors) of the Anglican Kingdom and Church. He died at Weston S(uper) M(are) [or S(o)m(erset)?], on the second day of May AD 1871. His wife Anna Isabella, most beloved and most loving, caused this glazed window to be erected in (his) memory. O Baldwin, a great loss you are to me!
