Edward Baker was born circa 1621 in England, United Kingdom to John Baker (c1592-1670) and Sarah Wall (c1594-) and died 16 March 1687 Essex County, Massachusetts, United States of America of unspecified causes. He married Joan or Jane (-1693) .

"Edward Baker - was a farmer, and lived on the south side of Baker's Hill, in Saugus. He was admitted a freeman in 1638; and was buried March 16, 1687. His wife, Joan, died April 9, 1693. His sons were Edward, who married Mary Marshall, April 7, 1675; Thomas, who married Mary Lewis, July 10, 1689 [Mr. Baker removed to Northampton about 1658, and there grants of land. He remained many years respected and influential. Mr. Lewis is incorrect in one or two particulars. The name of Mr. Baker's wife was Jane, and he had five sons - Joseph, Timothy, Edward, Thomas and John. He finally returned to Lynn; but his sons Joseph and Timothy remained at Northampton. John is supposed to have settled in Dedham, and become the head of an extensive family. The will of Mr. Baker is dated 16 Oct, 1685 and having previously provided for some of his children by deed, not all of them are named in it. He exhorts his family to live peaceable and pious lives and desires for himself a decent funeral, suitable to his rank and quality while living. Timothy was a prominent man in Northampton, and some of his descendants became conspicuous; among them, Hon. Osymn Baker, later a member of Congress." - History of Lynn, Essex County: Massachusetts Including Lynnfield ..., Volume 1 By Alonzo Lewis, James Robinson Newhall
