We are excited to share with you new research and sources about the immigrating Newman ancestors.
We begin with the Thomas Newman that was born in 1620 and immigrated on the Plain Joan ship, where you can see the ship manifest.
We found there are number of Thomas and John Newmans that people have merged together and called “Thomas Newman the Immigrant” and “John Newman the Immigrant.” We mapped several immigrants.
We don’t yet know which Thomas Newman that immigrated was the one that died in 1700. But we do know these things about that Thomas and his family. We also show that the Thomas that died in 1700 was the father of the Thomas that married Bridget Wilson. This page explains our calculation methods, and shows some family tree charts.
The research we are sharing is much different than anything previously published. We show links and images of the actual records, and explain how we came to to our conclusions. This page shares some major differences and gives some background information about how Julie, Wade & Anne began collaborating.
This website is frequently updated, not all changes are noticeable. Please share this email and links to the website with others.
Please refrain from screen shots and printing pages, so that everyone can have the latest information. For example, in April 2021, we released a family page about Alexander Newman and Hannah Halbert, showing why we believed two men were their sons. We found a chancery case in August 2021 that proved those two men were Alexander and Hannah’s children. The case also included seven more children than we previously knew about! If people had a screen shot of Hannah and Alexander’s page they would have only known about two children. If someone has a link they will see all the updates.
