Mary Newberry (m. Daniel Clark)

Parents: Thomas Newberry (Bapt.11-10-1594 in Yarcombe, Devonshire Co., England d. 12-1-1635 in Dorchester, MA) and Joan Dabincott Children: Joseph (4-10-1620), Sarah (1622), Benjamin (1624), Mary (10-22-1626), John (2-19-1628)

THOMAS NEWBERRY: was born 1594 Yarcombe, Devon, England, baptized 10 Nov 1594 Yarcombe, Devon, England (citing the church registers of Yarcombe, Devon), and died December 1636 in Dorchester, Norfolk, Massachusetts. Thomas became a puritan as a young man. He married (1) JOAN DABINOTT, daughter of CHRISTOPHER DABINOTT. Joan was born about 1600, and died about 1629 in England. He married (2) JANE DABINOTT about 1630 in England, daughter of JOHN DABINOTT and JOHANE. Jane died 23 April 1655 in Norwalk, Fairfield, Connecticut. Between 1625 and 1634 Thomas was at Coweleyes in Marshwood, Dorset. In a chancery suit in which Christopher Dabinott was concerned it was claimed that he was worth between £2,000 and £6,000. The lease purchased for the estate Coweleyes was to run for 99 years or during his life and that of his grandsons Joseph and Benjamin Newberry as a marriage portion for his daughter Joane, wife of Thomas Newberry who occupied the estate for nearly 9 years until his move to New England In late 1628 "Thomas Newberye" is listed in a subsidy of Charles I, being assessed 21s. 4d. on goods in Marshwood of value of £4. In November 1624 Thomas was appointed Overseer of will of John Dabinott. John Dabinott of Chardstock, was the uncle of Thomas Newberry's first wife. Thomas was given a gold ring for his expected services. Thomas engaged in legal study in London, England during several terms of the Court of Chancery. On 17 Apr 1634 Thomas Newburgh of Marthwood Vale and many others set saile on the ship Mary and John from Walmouth towards New England. Per the diary of William Whiteway of Dorchester, co. Dorset, England who was an associate of Rev. John White, (Rev. Walter Newburgh, cousin of Thomas Newberry, and many others, in the company of Dorchester Adventurers, whose operations in connection with New England culminated in the sailing from Plymouth, England in March 1630 of the ship Mary and John with a party of colonists from Somerset, Dorset and Devon who founded Dorchester, MA.) The original diary of William Whiteway is preserved in the Manuscript Dept. of the British Museum, London and extends from 1618 to 1634. It mentions several meetings of the Dorchester Adventurers. Dorchester records, printed vol., p.7: Mr. Newberry, (from the English parish of Marshwood Vale in Dorsetshire), shall have 30 acres. It is ordered that Mr. Newbery is to have for his purchase that he bought of Mr. Pincheon, the house Mr. Pincheon build, 40 acs. of upland ground to the house, 40 acres of marsh, 20 acres in Quantq necke. Earliest homesteads in Dorchester were located in vicinity of present Edward Everett Square and on or about Rocky Hill (now Savin Hill) where at Nov. 3, 1634 Thos. had land per p. 8 Dorchester records: "It is ordered that no man shall fall the trees that stand at the corner of Mr. Newberyes lott on the Rocke". He also acquired a large farm south of the Neponset River (in what is now Atlantic) where he built a dwelling as referred to in Dorchester records, p. 9: It is grant that Mr. Newberry shall have the hedgey ground that lies in the bottom betwixt his house and the water next Mr. Cottingtons farme in part of the meadow that is to have" P. 12-13: "November 1635 ... and likewise next there unto was laid out a hundred acres of medow unto Mr. Thomas Newbery as that was likewise graunted him by order of Court together with an hundred acres of uplnad ground and likewise it is ordered and agreed upon whereas Mr. Newbery hath relinquished a former graunt from the Plantation of 40 acs. of marsh and 20 acs. of upland in squantum necke, he is now to take all the ground from his house to Mr. Willsons farme , inconsideration thereof". This Newberry farm contained about 400 acs, was bounded north by Neponset River, east by Quincy Bay, south by Rev. John Wilson's farm (in what is now Wollaston) near present day Squantum St. and west by Sagamore Creek, covering the whole of the present district of Atlantic in the City of Quincy. At Thomas' death the farm was sold to Hon. John Glover of Dorchester and it continued in the Glover family for 8 gen. The original house build by Thomas stood until 1798 when it was taken down by Ebenezer Glover and replaced with a new mansion occupied by Horatio N. Glover. Thomas was a merchant and one of the richest among the colonists. On 3 Sep 1634 Thomas became a Freeman, which would mean that Thomas joined the church shortly after his arrival in Dorchester, Massachusetts. On 28 Ooct 1634 Thomas was appointed Selectman at Dorchester, Massachusetts, whereupon it was aggreed that "there shall be Tenn men chosen to order all the affayres of the Plantation, to continue for one yeare and to mete monethly according to the order Oct. 8, 1633." He was appointed 4 Mar 1634/35 and again May 6, 1635, Dorchester, Deputy to the General Court. He was appointed Nov 1635 To handle "affayres" of the Plantation, "Dorchester, Massachusetts, Town Records" Transcribed by William Blake Trask. "The names of such as are chosen for ordering the affayres of the Plantatin, November 1635, to continue for halfe a yeere." Included are: William Philps; Nathaniel Duncan; Mr. George Hull; Mr. Democke; William Gaylar; Mr. Roger Williams; George Minot; John Phillips; Mr. Newberry." Thomas received a land grant in the wilderness near what would become Walpole, Massachusetts on 04 Mar 1634/35 - At the General Court "an hundred acres of upland ground and an hundred acres of meadowe ground graunted to Mr. Thomas Newberry, lyeing nexte to the lands of Mr. Israell Stoughton, about 8 or 9 myles up Naponsett Ryver, on the north side to the rvyer, to enjoy to him and his hieres for ever". This grant in the wilderness was located in the present town of Walpole, MA but apparently it was never actually surveyed and laid out to Mr. Newberry, as over 25 years after his death, his heirs tried unsuccessfully to claim it as appears by General Court record. Thomas was appointed, at July 8 1635 to set the bounds between Wessaguscus and Barcove but died before its accomplishment.

Grandparents: Richard Newberry (bc.1557 in Othe Francis Manor, Dorsetshire Co., England d. about 1629 in England) and Grace Matthew (bapt.11-21-1558 in Yarcombe, Devonshire Co., England buried 12-28-1632 in Yarcombe, Devonshire Co., England) Married: January 15, 1579 in Yarcombe, Devonshire Co., England

RICHARD NEWBERYE; GENT: was born about 1557 in Othe Francis Manor, Netherbury, Dorset, England, and died about 1629 in England. No will or administration on his estate has been found. He married, ("his distant kinswoman Grace, who was heiress to a small landed estate in Yarcombe, co. Devon, a parish about a dozen miles west of Netherbury"), GRACE MATTHEW 15 January 1579/80 in Yarcombe, England, daughter of JOHN MATTHEW and Great Grandaughter of STEPHEN and ISABELl (NEWBURG) MATHEW of Yarcombe in Devonshire, England. GRACE MATTHEW was baptized 21 November 1558 and buried 18 December 1632, Yarcombe, England. Richard did not inherit any of the family lands as he was a younger son. He did not get an education for a profession, nor did he secure much estate by his marriage. They lived near Yarcombe, Devon, England, citing that Richard was a deponent there in the chancery suite of Hayward vs. Newberow. According to the History of Ancient Windson, pg. 516 it was noted that family tradition held that two brothers of Thomas the Emigrant, remained in England and were members of Cromwell's Thousand Dragoon in 1641/42. Also according to tradition: that in an early day one William of Newberry was the Chronicler of his District, (Recorder of events for the government), that he was a wise and learned man and that at the date of the adoption of surnames he was granted the distinguished honor (accorded to only one citizen of a town) of taking his name as its own, therefore he became William Newberry. Also noted: the Hon. J. Hammond Trumbull of Hartford, CT found old letters of the family pasted in the cover of an old book in which mention was made of an uncle or Capt. Newberry, living in Morchard (now Marchard Bishop) fifteen miles from Exeter in Devon. Further states: a great deal of weaving is said to have been carried on at this place and it is said that John of Newberry discovered the art.

In 1392 he mortgaged the manor of Winfrith to John Moigne, redeeming it the next year. In 1420 he was sheriff of Dorsetshire; and in 1433 John Newburgh and John his son were enrolled in a list of the gentry of that county "who could expend £10 per annum".

MARGARET POYNTZ, daughter and co-heiress of Sir Nicholas Poyntz, Knt., by Alianore his wife, daughter of Sir John Erleigh, Knt.; she brought considerable estates to the Newburgh family.

7 great grandparents: THOMAS NEWBURGH; KNIGHT born about 1315, succeeded to the family estates upon his father's death in 1338, on payment of a fine to the Crown for livery of his inheritance. He must have died about 1365, as two years later the executors of Sir Thomas Newburgh were absolved by the bishop on making restitution for the profits which the said Sir Thomas had received by selling the lead which covered the roof of the parish church in his manor of Winfrith. In this generation the "de" finally disappears in records of the family name; the dropping out of this preposition in English family place-names became quite general during the half-century reign of Edward III. (1327-1377). Sir Thomas13 Newburgh married about 1337, HAWISA ———; she survived him and died in November 1381, her inquisition post mortem stating that her grandson and heir John Newburgh was ten years of age. (I. P.M., 5 Richard II., no. 45.)

In 1322 he was one of the knights taken prisoner at the battle of Boroughbridge in a rebellion under the Earl of Lancaster against King Edward II. By his participation in this rebellion, his estates became forfeited to the Crown; but he secured a pardon and restoration of his lands by payment of a fine of £100, taking an oath of allegiance to the King, and binding himself to serve the latter in his wars; this service he performed in 1325 on a summons for an expedition into Gascony. In 1336 he deeded certain lands to his brother John de Newburgh; and he died in 1338, his inquisition post mortem stating his son and heir Thomas was twenty-three years old. (I. P.M., 12 Edward III., no. 2.) He married about 1315, MARGARET————.

9 great grandparents: JOHN DE NEWBURGH: born about 1250, succeeded to the Dorsetshire ancestral estates, and in 1290 with wife Margery petitioned King Edward I. for a confirmation of the grant of the manor of Winfrith which had been made to him by his father Henry de Newburgh.

In 1242 he paid a fine of 30 marks to be released from going to Gascony in the service of King Henry III.; and in 1246 he paid scutage of £15 for fifteen knight's fees formerly of Roger Arundel, on a grant to the same Sovereign upon the marriage of the latter's daughter. Robert de Newburgh died in 1246, his inquisition post mortem stating that his son and heir [Henry] was then twenty-three years old. (I. P. M., 30 Henry III., no. 33.)

12 great grandparents: ROBERT DE NEWBURGH: born about 1175, was under age at the time of his father's death about 1192, but on coming of age succeeded to the latter's estates in Dorsetshire and also inherited lands from his mother, as in 1199 he paid scutage of 30 marks on his fees formerly of Roger Arundel.
On 24 Mar. 1210, King John confirmed to Robert8 de Newburgh the grant made to his grandfather Robert de Newburgh by King Henry I. of the manor of Winfrith with lands in Lullworth, etc., in Dorsetshire, said manor being held in capite [of the Crown] by the service of holding the basin of water and towel for the washing of the King's hands on Christmas day. At a later period the time of this service was changed to the coronation day of each sovereign. This manor and service continued in the Newburgh family for twelve generations, during a period of nearly four centuries, through the coronation of King Henry VIII. in 1509; in 1515, on the death of Sir Roger18 Newburgh, Knt., the manor passed through an heiress out of the Newburgh name; but at later coronations this right of service was claimed by the lords of the manor to whom it had descended from the Newburghs. In 1217, Robert, son of Roger de Newburgh, granted by charter the manor of Woolaveston to Bindon Abbey where he was interred about 1230. The name of his wife has not been learned.

13 great grandparents: ROGER DE NEWBURGH: born about 1135, settled in Dorsetshire, England, where he inherited from his father the manor of Winfrith with extensive estates in that county. In 1172 Roger de Newburgh, son of Robert de Newburgh, and Matilda wife of said Roger, founded the Cistercian Abbey of Bindon in Dorsetshire which they endowed with lands, as appears by their charter of that year; and in this monastery they and some ten generations of their descendants were sepultured. He died about 1192 and was buried in Bindon Abbey. He married about 1170, MATILDA DE GLASTONIA, daughter of Robert and Azilia de Glastonia, and grand-daughter of William de Glastonia by Matilda his wife, daughter of Roger Arundel.

14 great grandparents: ROBERT DE NEWBURGH: born about 1100, succeeded to his father's estates in Ponteaudemer, Normandy, where he resided, served as seneschall of that Dukedom, and received from King Henry I. of England the grant of the manor of Winfrith in Dorsetshire. He was a great benefactor of the Abbey of Bec in Normandy where late in life he became a monk; and dying 30 Aug. 1159, was buried in that monastery. The name of his wife was GODELBREDA
Children: Robert, Raoul, Richard, Henry, Roger (c.1135)

Henry married in about 1090, MARGARET DE PERCHE born 1067 of Normandy, France and who died in 1156. Margaret was a daughter of GEOFFREY COMTE DE PERCHE and BEATRICE. In about 1066 he received grants of estates in Warwickshire, England from William the Conqueror where he built Warwick Castle. In 1080 he was appointed Baron of the Exchequer of Normandy. In 1088 he was appointed Castellan or Constable by King William "The Conqueror". In about 1090 he received the title, Earl of Warwick. Descendants of Henry De Newburgh/Henry De Beaumont maintained control of Warwick Castle for the following five generations and until 1242 when Thomas, the last de Beaumont Earl of Warwick, dies without an heir and the castle and estates passes to his sister Margaret, and her husband John de Plessis.
Children: Henry, Geoffery, Archbishop Rotrude, Abbot Richard, Margery, Agnes, Earl Roger, Robert (c.1100)

16 great grandparents: ROGER DE BEAUMONT; SIRE, (Count de Meullant): was born about 1010 of Pont Audemer, Normandy, France and succeeded to the family estates in Normandy, as Sire du Ponteaudemer, Seigneur de Veulles, Préaux, Torville, and du Ponteaitorf, and Seigneur de Beaumont (or Bellomont), by which last name he came to be generally described. By his marriage he greatly increased the possessions and prestige of the family, and he rose to be one of the most powerful feudal noblemen of his age in Normandy. When William the Conqueror invaded England in 1066, Roger de Beaumont furnished sixty armed vessels for the fleet and was left in charge of the government of Normandy when the Conqueror started on the expedition. There is some debate as to whether Roger accompanied William and was at the Battle of Hastings in 1066 and afterwards was sent back to govern Normandy. He munificently endowed the Abbey of Préaux, of which late in life he became a monk; and he died in 1094 at advanced age and was buried in this monastery, the Abbey de Préaux, Ponteaudemer, Normandy. He married in Ponteaudemer, Normandy about 1040, ADELINE DE MEULLANT born 1014 of Pontaudemer, Normandy, France and daughter of and eventually sole heiress of Waleran, Comte de Meullant, a great feudal nobleman of France. Adeline died in 1081.

His name is found on many monastic charters of the period; and about 1050 he founded and endowed the Abbey of Préaux in Pontaudemer, where he was buried." He married about 1005, AUBERE'E DE LA HAYE, born 984 of Pontaudemer, Normandy, France and died 20 Sep 1045. She was heiress of the Forest of Brotonne. Humphrey died on 28 Sep 1044 in Normandy, France and was buried at Abbey de Préaux, Ponteaudemer, Normandy]

18 great grandparents: TOUROUDE DU PONTEAUDEMER; SIRE: was born about 950 of Normandy, France.

He married about 980, WEVIA (Duceline) DE CRÊPON, born 942 of Pont-Audemer, Eure, France, who was a younger sister of the Duchess Gunnora, wife of Richard I., Duke of Normandy.
Children: Herbrard, Gilberd, Richard, Ilbert, Josseline, Humphrey de Vuelles

19 great grandparents: TORF "The Rich" DE TORVILLE; SEIGNEUR: was born about 920 of Normandy, France and married ERTEMBERGE DE BRIQUEBEC about 950. "Torf, Seigneur De Torville, a great Norman feudal baron, born about A.D. 920, is the earliest historical progenitor of the Newburgh or Newberry family from whom a certain and unbroken male line has been traced. Probably he was a grandson of one of the viking chiefs of Scandinavia who accompanied Rollo about (and some say son-in-law to Rollo) 900 A.D. in the Norse invasion of northern France where they permanently settled and gave to the country its name "Normandy". Torf possessed numerous lordships in Normandy, being Seigneur de Torville, Torcy, Torny, Torly, du Ponteautorf, etc."

From the Book, "Newberry Family and In-Laws", by Grant Harold Collar Jr.:

Page 21: The Newberry Family Name came from the birthplace of one of the four children of Roger de Beaumont and Adeline de Meullant. Their second child, Henry was born in 1045 at the Castle of Neubourg in Normandy France, about 75 miles west-northwest of Paris. Hence, he was called Henry de Neubourg which was later anglicized to Newburgh. The father, Roger, lived about 1010-1094 and married Adeline about 1040. When William the Conqueror invaded England in 1066, Roger furnished sixty armed vessels for the fleet and was left in charge of the government of Normandy.

The first son, Robert de Beaumont accompanied William the Conqueror to England in 1066, distinguished himself in the Battle of Hastings, and was rewarded with Ninety-one Lordships or Manors in England, mostly in Warwickshire.

The second son, Henry, succeeded to his fathers estates in the Pont Audemer area of Normandy. Without, himself, having part in the invasion, he nevertheless received from William the Conqueror grants of great estates in Warwickshire, England - about 80 miles northwest of London, where he built Warwick Castle and was created the Earl of Warwick by King William II about 1090.

About the same year Henry de Newburgh married Margaret de Perche. Their oldest son, Roger de Newburgh, who lived about 1090 to 12 Jun 1153, remained in England and succeeded his father as the Second Earl of Warwick.

The original namesake, Henry de Neubourg, is buried beside his father in the Abbey de Préaux at Pont Audemer, which is about 20 miles west of Rouen and the same distance northwest of Neubourg.

Some of the sources cited: The first seven generations: (account of the Norman and early English ancestry of the Newburgh family) derived mainly from:
"Histoire de la Maison de Harcourt" by La Roqne (vol. 1, pp. 36-58),
Burke's "Dormant, Abeyant and Extinct Peerages" (pp. 42 and 399-400),
and G. E. Cokayne's "Complete Peerage", first edition (vol. 5, pp. 40-45, and vol. 8, pp. 52-55).

The next ten generations of the Newburgh family at Winfrith, co. Dorset, England, is based (with corrections in details) on: Hutchins' "History of Dorset" (vol. 1, pp. 366-368, 429, 436-437, and 708-712).

The account of John16 Newburgh and seven generations of his descendants in England, was compiled in general from original records, references for each being given in passim.
