Tilmanus Nicolaus Bauduin (1750-1794), son of Dominicus Bauduin and Judith Solders, became master silversmith in Maastricht in 1778, after he had been trained in his uncle’s, Servatius Beckers, workshop. Tilmanus married Maria Sophia Catharina Hoffman in 1782 and died in 1794. At that time he lived at Muntstraat, Maastricht.
