Baldwin was an 18th-century man, an Irish whig who supported aristocracy, primogeniture, ministerial responsibility and the civil and religious liberties of the British constitution. His great cause was RESPONSIBLE GOVERNMENT, that "the English principles of responsibility be applied to our local Executive Council." The fight was carried on by his eldest son, Robert BALDWIN, whom he had instilled with a sense of providential mission.
