Described as 'of Llandysilio,' he was for many years parish clerk of Llanymynech. His name is associated with the well-known map of North Wales, 1795, the work of John Evans, Llwyn-y-groes, Llanymynech, but engraved by Baugh. Baugh made a map of Shropshire for which he was awarded, in 1809, a silver medal and fifteen guineas by the Royal Society of Arts, London. He died 27 December 1832, aged 84.
