Thomas Newman & Bridget Willson

By Julie Cabitto 10 Feb 2023

Another son of Thomas and Bridget was Elias Newman, whose first child according to a transcribed Bible record was born in the year 1721. If we estimate that Elias Newman and his first wife were married in 1720, about a year before their first child was born, and that Elias was age 25 at the time of his marriage, he would have been born about 1695. I estimate Thomas was the oldest child of Thomas and Bridget, as seemed the family tradition to name their oldest son Thomas. This Thomas would have been born about 1686. That would have made him about age 21 when he was willed two years of schooling by his uncle John Willson.

*Dates are estimated based on if males married at age 25 and females age 21.

Elias Newman’s Children:

None of the website’s researchers have seen this Bible.  We only have this transcription, which we soon hope to view and verify.

Thomas Newman married Bridget Willson, probably in Old Rappahannock County, Virginia.
