    Notes 
    • Possibly the first of the name in America was Robert Newman, who came from England to Elizabeth City County, Virginia in the ship "Furthence" in 1618, aged 19 years. He was living in Elizabeth City County in 1624. On 11 May 1635 he obtained a patent for 450 acres of land which he afterwards assigned to Richard Bennett. Robert Newman undoubtedly married and left, with other children, two, sons, William and John. William made his home in York County and had a son named John. John married Ruth Taberer, daughter of Thomas Taberer of the Isle of Wight County, and their child ren were Thomas and Isabella.
      Second was William Newman, 35, who arrived on the ship "Furtherance" ( Note: There is 33 years difference of Robert/William and John Jr. and Thomas. There is a possibility that they could have been the uncles to the two latter two, or possibly half brothers through a second marriage of John Sr.) He settled in Isle of Wight County, where, on 26 August 1643 he was granted a patent for 550 acres of land situated "northerely towards the sunken marsh, easterly upon a swamp, southerly towards the lower Chipokes Creek." He married Priscilla and had one daughter, Joan, who married Lawrence of Compton-Chamberlain, in Wiltshire, England. The will of William Newman, Sr. dated 20 Jan 1669 was proven in York County.
      Third was John Newman Jr. 24, who emigrated to Virginia in 1635 in the ship "Globe". John settled in James City County, where on 1 April 1644, Henry Thompson assigned to him 150 acres of land on Smith's Fort Creek. He appears to have resided there for about seven years, as between 1652 a nd 1677, he had acquired in the Northern Neck by letters patent, grant and deeds, about 4,000 acres situated on both sides of Moratico Creek, in the present counties of Lancaster and Richmond. He resided near Tarplay's Point, then known as Moratico or Newman's Neck. He married a Miss Woodbridge (about 1655) daughter of Paul Woodbridge, in then Rappahannock County. They had three sons, Alexander, Samuel and John.
      Fourth was Thomas, brother of John Jr., who came to Virginia in 16 35 on the ship "Plaine Joan" at the age of 15.
      Thomas, who was born in England in 1620, probably settle with his brother John in James City County, Virginia, and moved with him to Old Rappahannock County, Va. by 1666. Thomas married Elizabeth Burdett, daughter of Henry Burdett Sr. He died intestate, about the beginning of the year 1700, and his personal estate was appraised at 16,577 pounds of tobacco. It is believed that his children were one daughter (possibly the wife of Avert Naylor), Frances, who married John McMillan and John Wilson, Elizabeth, Thomas II, John and George.
      Others who came to Virginia from England were John who settled in Henrico County about 1638; Robert of New Norfolk County about 1636, who probably had a son of the same name; Thomas of Westmoreland County in 1638; Richard of Charles City County in 1639; William of Northumberland County i n 1 652; and Samuel, who came in 1654.
      These were probably sons of John Newman, a member of the London Virginia Company in 1609.
