The homepage has been completely reworked. We’re adding more places, maps by time period, and charts. We’re also creating an area of the website for transcriptions, in addition to the links to records in FamilySearch.
William Halbert’s page is ready to view.
There are many things we haven’t released yet, because the more we write, the more we question interpretation of sources. But we realize this means it is awhile until you hear something is “finished.” We will now list things we know, like parents and children’s names. When those pages are ready, the words will turn blue, meaning they have a linked page. You can see examples of this on the homepage and in the name index.
We have added a paragraph to Changes to Newman tradition:
We have not seen any records that prove who Thomas’s parents are, the Thomas married to Bridget Wilson. It is possible that he is he son of Thomas that died in 1700, across the Rappahannock River in Richmond County. But there are other possible men in Essex who could be the father: William Newman, Francis Newman, Samuel Newman and Edward Newman.
- Three possible scenarios for the Thomas Newman that died in 1700.
- Frances Newman (Mackmelion, Wilson and Hopkins)
- Ann, the wife of Elias Newman (the Ann’s we’ve ruled out)
