Francis Baglin was born circa 1798 in Uley, Gloucestershire, England, United Kingdom to Francis Neville Baglin (1763-1842) and Winifred Hinton (c1764-1826) and died 9 September 1876 Camberwell, London Borough of Southwark, England, United Kingdom of morbus cordis. He married Sarah Robins (1799-1848) 25 December 1822 in England, United Kingdom.

In 1841, Francis, a carpenter and builder, was living in Uley with his wife and her family Thomas Robins and William Robins (also spelt Robbins), his father-in-law and brother-in-law.

By 1848 Francis had moved to South East London, probably due to the serious unemployment problem in Uley brought on by the closure of woolen mills in the area.

In 1851, Francis was living at 16 Alfred Place in South East London and by the time the Electoral Roll was drawn up in 1872 he had improved his lot. He was then recorded as residing at 6 East Surrey Grove, Peckham, London, and was the freeholder of several properties in that street. Other family members say that he built three houses himself.

Francis died in 1876 of Morbus Cordis. In his will he described himself as a 'Gentleman'. His estate consisted of rented property, stocks, funds and securities and it was divided equally between his 4 surviving children, Llewellen, John Hinton, Sarah and William.

John Hinton Baglin
John and his wife Charlotte Marks immigrated to Australia from England in 1855 with their first daughter, Wilhelmina Charlotte Baglin. They went to Australia as assisted immigrants on the ship "Euphrates" which arrived in Sydney on 5th August 1855.

Sarah Baglin
In the 1881 census, Sarah was visiting William Lewis at his home in Birmingham. She is recorded as being unmarried and of no occupation. She inherited her father's personal effects after his death in 1876 and she remained unmarried until her own death in 1904.

William Baglin
At the time of his marriage to Henrietta Hall Hunt, William classed himself as a builder and joiner. At the time of his death in 1884 he was just a carpenter. Family gossip suggests that he squandered his share of his fathers' estate and at his death in East Surrey Grove, Camberwell, London, he owned the princely sum of £136-19s-10d. Probate was granted to his widow who was left to raise a large family in virtual poverty.
