PART V. ANTHONY NEWTON, ET AL.

6935. JOHN NEWTON of Dorchester, Mass., 1632; freeman, 1633; removed
to Dedham. He had lands in Dorchester set off to him "Next to Koxbury," in
1633, and in 1637 other lands in Dorchester were granted to him. He was kins-
man of Edward Alleyn of Dedham, who, dying suddenly at Boston, where he
was a representative to the General Court, 1642, by nuncupative will gave his
estate to John^ewton and another relative. He married and had a son:

6935a. i. Henry, bapt. — , 1643.



6936. JOHN NEWTON of Colliton, Devonshire, England, Chirurgeon [i. e.
surgeon], in his will, dated April 3, 1646, and proved April 24, 1647, mentions
and provides for "My wife Alice," gives to his "daughter Mary," "my son
Anthony and my daughter Joane, or their children," and if his "daughter Mary
die childless," etc., then to Edward Newton, son of William Newton of Waddon
in the Parish of Southley. "Also I give unto Anthony, my said son, and Joane
my said daughter, which are now in New England, six pounds a piece, to be
paid by Mary my said daughter, within a year after my death. The residue to
my said daughter Mary, whom I make mine executrix." The will was proved
"by the oath of Mary Stocker als Newton, natural and lawful daughter of the
deceased."

It is supposed the son Anthony, in New England, was the same person as the
one mentioned by Savage, in the following fashion: "Newton, Anthony, Dor-
chester, of Braintree 1640, engaged 1652, in sett, of Lancaster, was freeman 1671."
And by Farmer: "Newton. Anthony, Lancaster 1652, freeman 1671." I have
little news of this immigrant Newton. I record what I suppose to be his descend-
ants — have not tried to gather them, merely to eliminate them from the record
of those of Richard Newton 1 of Sudbury.



6937. ANTHONY NEWTON 1 was an original member of the church at
Milton, Mass., when it was gathered April 24, 1678. He signed the covenant
with eleven others from the church at Dorchester. His wife, "Sister Newton,"
was admitted by letter from Dorchester, Oct. 2, 1681. It is stated by Hon.
Newton Talbot of Boston : "I am a descendant of Anthony Newton of Milton.
He must have been in that town for many years, as he was voted land from the
'new grant' not as an original settler, but as one who had claims as an early
townsman." I have no authority as to his children except the son :

JOHN, ANTHONY, THOMAS, ET AL. 799

The following Newtons appear on the Milton church records. I suppose they
are related to Anthony Newton of that town, but do not know :

6939. EPHRAIM NEWTON, m. Ruth , who was admitted to the

church at Milton, March 10, 1689. Their daughter,

6940. i. Abigail, "dan. of Ephraim of Milton," m. at Dorchester, Dec. 17. 1095, James
Puffer. They had four children, and he died before Nov. 18, 1718, when his
widow was appointed to administer on his estate.



6941. JOHN NEWTON, born about 1688; died at Milton, February 16, 1774,
aged 86 years. It would seem that he had no immediate family, or had outlived
them, when he made his will in 1767. Pompey, his negro man, died at Milton,
August 3, 1780. An abstract of the will of "Mr. John Newton," and guardian-
ship of his negro man, Pompey, follows :

6942. THOMAS NEWTON, "the Attorney" at Boston, came there in 1688
from New Hampshire. He was Secretary of that province until 1690; 'was
Controller of the Customs at Boston; Judge of the Admiralty, and Attorney-
General for the Province of Massachusetts Bay. He occupied this last position
during and after the witchcraft prosecutions. "His opinion must have led to
the cure of the infernal delusion, for in January, 1693, he wrote to Sir William
Phipps, the Governor, that of the fifty-two charged at Salem, at that court, the
three convicted should have been acquitted like the rest." [Savage.] He was
born in England, gentleman, "June 10, 1660, being Whitsunday," and died at



POO NEWTON GENEALOGY

Boston, Mass.," on the Lord's day being also Whitsunday," June 18, 1721. He
was one of the original founders of King's Chapel, Boston; was a member of
its vestry 1698 and 1699, and warden in 1704 and afterwards. A mural monu-
ment was erected to his memory, in that church, by his great-grandson, Edward
A. Newton. The library of Thomas Newton, advertised for sale soon after his
death, is said to have been the greatest and best collection of law books which
had ever been offered for sale in the country. The Boston News-Letter, in the
mention of his death, says in part : "He was educated there, [Eng.] and entirely
beloved there and here by all who knew him. One who carried himself hand-
somely to all, and just . . . affable and courteous . . . inoffensive conversa-
tion, of strict devotion toward God. . . . The funeral was attended by His
Excellency the Governor, Gentlemen of His Majesty's Council, with other prin-
cipal gentlemen, merchants, and others." In a descriptive list of seals attached
to the correspondence of David Jeffries, Esq., treasurer of Boston for many years
during that period, that of Thomas Newton, Attorney-General, appears on a
letter dated Boston, January 28, 16S9, to the Hon. John Usher, Esq., with shield

badly broken: "Crest, an arm vambraced and embowed, grasping a ?

[It is hard to say what this was meant for; perhaps a wand, or perhaps a shin
bone.] Newton of Newcastle-on-Tyne, England, bears, two shin bones in saltire.
Crest, an arm vambraced and embowed, grasping a shin-bone."

Mr. Newton married. [It seems to me in England, but may be not.] His
wife, and widow. Christian Newton, mentions in her will, "my part of an Estate
in Old England at my Father's Death belonged to me," and "my Estate at
Plastow in Old England." [There are two towns Plaistow in England, one in
Sussex County and one now a part of larger London. Her mention of and
bequest to "my daughter Thompson," not mentioned in the will of her husband,
would lead one to think she might be her daughter by a previous marriage. I
do not know.] Their children as given in the two wills were:

6943-6946. 1, Hibbert 2 ; 2, Elizabeth 2 ; 3, Christian 2 ; 4, Hannah 2 , and "daughter
Thompson" — which was probably her married name. The daughter
Christian 2 , only, was married at that date, 1728. Abstracts of the wills
of Thomas Newton, Esq., and of his widow, Christian Newton, follow :

6943. HIBBERT NEWTON 2 (s. of Thomas 1 "the Attorney"), born probably
sometime during the decade prior to 1700. It is stated of him, there being little
traffic with Nova Scotia in winter, "That season was always spent by Hibbert
Newton in Boston, his native place." He was appointed Collector of Customs in
Nova Scotia in 1711, and held his office at Annapolis, on the Bay of Fundy, where
he died in 1751, having made his will the year before. He married Hannah
Adams, daughter of John Adams of Boston, where she was baptized, September
17. 1699, and was living in 1750, when she was made executrix of her husband's
will. Her father, John Adams (s. of John and Avis), was at one time lieutenant-
governor of Nova Scotia, but subsequently (1740) returned to Boston, where he
died. He was a brother of the celebrated Matthew Adams, the friend and patron
of Dr. Benjamin Franklin. The children of Hibbert 2 and Hannah Newton are
mentioned in the will of their father, an abstract of which follows :

1802, at Halifax, N. S. He succeeded his father in 1751 as Collector of Cus-
toms in Nova Scotia and resided there until his decease. "Thus the father and
son held possession of the same office, successively, for 90 year."

y02 NEWTON GENEALOGY

He married Ann Stuart, daughter of Gilbert Stuart [a Scotchman, who came
to this country in 1746, settled first at Narragansett, afterwards at Newport,
R. I., where he married. About 1783 or so they moved to Nova Scotia. He was
also the father of the celebrated painter, Gilbert Stuart]. After the death of
her husband in 1802, Mrs. Newton came, in 1803, to Massachusetts and opened
a school for young ladies at Medford, and afterwards in Boston. She died in
1822. The one child I know of is :

6956. i. Edward Augustus 4 , b. May 1, 1785, at Halifax, N. S. ; d. at Pittsfield, Mass.,
Aug. IS, 1862, aged 77. He m. 1815, Sarah Tileston Williams, daughter
of John Chandler Williams of Pittsfield. She d. 1836, at Rouen, France.
He m. (2) at Newburyport, Mass., 1837, Susanna Cleveland Tyng, daughter
of Dudley A. and Sarah Tyng. Mr. Newton came to Boston late in 1803
and engaged with the mercantile house of Stephen Higginson & Company,
on Fosters wharf. In 1805 he was sent on business for them to India. He
continued exclusively in the India trade till 1826, when, having acquired a
competency, he retired from business and resided permanently in Pittsfield.
He was a member of the governor's council in Massachusetts with Govern-
ors Davis and Briggs ; for a long time president of the Agricultural Bank
at Pittsfield ; a member of the Episcopal Church, and of the N. E. Hist.
Gen. Society. Of his children, I know only of his daughter, b. at Pittsfield :

(>957. 1. Elisabeth Stuart*, b. Sept. 9, 1838 ; d. June 24, 1891, at sea while making

her second trip to Europe. Never married.



The following Pittsfield Newtons I place here, not knowing whether they
belong to this family or not, namely :

6958. EDWARD E. NEWTON, born in 1828; "a man of independent spirit";
a trustee of Williams College.

6959. MISS LTJCRETIA NEWTON, who gave an organ to the church before
1876.



6960. GILBERT STUART NEWTON [see No. 6952], "nephew of Gilbert
Stuart, the painter," died September 3, 1835; married August 22, 1832, Sally
W. Swan, daughter of William Sullivan and Sally (Webb) Swan. She was
born November 10, 1810. She bore him one child. She married (2) June 25,
1840, William F. Oakey of New York and had eleven children. The child of
Gilbert S. was :

6961. i. Anne Stuart, b. 1833 ; d. 1863.



In an article giving some of the descendants of Percival and Ellen Green of
Cambridge, 1636, is the statement that Benjamin Green, born 1713, married 1737,
Margaret Pierce. He was in mercantile business with Asia until the expedi-
tion against Cape Breton. He acted as secretary, with military rank, to Sir
William Pepperell. He remained at Louisburg after its capture, filling several
offices until 1749, when he removed to Halifax, N. S., where he continued in the
public service, and died in 1772. His widow died in 1779. His daughter Mar-
garetta, married John Newton (6962). She died 1763, without children. "Char-
lotte [sister of Margaretta], married Henry Newton (6963), collector of customs
for Nova Scotia. She died in 1782, and left a large family." [Was this a first
marriage of Henry Newton 3 (Hibbert 2 ), and was the John Newton his brother?]



JOHN, ANTHONY, THOMAS, ET AL. . §03

6947. THOMAS NEWTON 3 (Hibbert 2 ). I have nothing whatever that I
surely know relates to him. The following administration of the estate of
Thomas Newton (see No. 6969), late of Billerica — the date and the account —
"for stockings, Butter, etc., sent to Cape Breton for the Dec'd," particularly,
lead me to think this might be the son of Hibbert 2 , collector of customs at that
period, 1711-1751.



6964. THOMAS. NEWTON 3 (grandson of Thomas 1 the Attorney), to whom
his grandmother bequeaths her "wedding ring, and the two books of Doctor
Hammond," would need to have been born by 1712, or before, if he were not
sixteen years old in 1728. In 1746 he would have been about 34 years more
or less. Perhaps he was the Thomas Newton of Billerica, below (No. 6969).



6945. CHRISTIAN NEWTON 2 (dau. of Thomas 1 the Attorney) is given
a bequest in both her father's and in her mother's will. She married, then of
Boston, February 11, 1723, John Wainwright, son of John and Elizabeth Wain-
wright. He was born June 19, 1691, and died September 1, 1739, aged 48. He
was graduated from Harvard College in 1709 or 1711. Merchant. He was long
examining clerk and held other offices of trust in the town of Ipswich, Mass.,
where they resided. He was a member of the Artillery Company, 1714; colonel
of regiment; Representative, 1720-1730; Justice of General Sessions of Court,
1723. A man of worth. He was survived by his wife and two children. The
names of the children were:

6965. i. John Wainwright.

6966. ii. Fkancis Wainwright.



6967. 1. JOHN NEWTON of Boston, by wife Mehitable, had a son,
6967a. i. Samuel, b. Jan. 23, 1678. [Savage.]



6968. 1. GEORGE NEWTON of Ipswich, Mass., about 1676, 1677.
