In compiling the history of this Newton family, the records of Matthew New-
ton, 3d (3), are chief authority for matters occurring before his death in 1814.
Other data are chiefly from his descendants, and some are from his son-in-law,
Arba Lankton (13).



1. MATTHEW NEWTON 1 , 1st, was born in England, probably about 1690;
emigrate I to America, and settled in 1720, in Stonington, New London County,
Conn. In the State Library at Hartford, Conn., in Ecclesiastical Documents,
Vol. 2, document 210, there is an "Account Specifying North Society Church,
to be built on 'gravely nole,' " Stonington, dated September 27, 1721, on which
the signature of "Matthew Nuton" occurs. Of his wife, no name has been dis-
covered. Of his children, the name of one only, namely :
