6970. JOSEPH NEWTON 1 of Hull, England, was from a family of New-
tons that lived in Hull, Yorkshire, England, for several generations and before
that came from the adjoining County of Lincolnshire. Since our Richard New-
ton of Sudbury, Mass., probably originated in or near the home town of Sudbury,
England, it is not impossible that these two clans may have been nearly related.



JOHN, ANTHONY, THOMAS, ET AL. 805

This man, Joseph Newton, was born about 1809, at Hull, England, and died

there about 1853. He married there about 1831, Elizabeth , who was born

6991. JOHN NEWTON of Fairfield, Vt., had a cousin Benjamin Upton. [I

cashire, England, emigrated to Canada, and their descendants to the United

7029. EICHAED NEWTON 1 , "from near Liverpool, England," came to
America and settled in Philadelphia, Pa., in 1822. His wife was Elizabeth, who
came with him "and the rest of the family"; of whom I have knowledge of
none except the son Richard, said to have then been ten years of age. This son,

delphia, Pa. He was a noted clergyman of the Episcopal Church, in charge
of St. Paul's Episcopal Church, on Third St., Philadelphia. Jay Cooke and
wife belonged to this church. He m. Lydia Greatorex, daughter of Lawrence
and Elizabeth Groatorex. TGreatorex was owner of paper mills on the
Brandywine, near Wilmington. Del., said to be the first paper mills in
America. He must have lived toward the latter part of 1700 and the first

Children were :

Potter ; was ordained priest in 1SG9. While deacon he served four
years as assistant to his father in Philadelphia : for two years had
charge of Trinity Church in Sharon Springs. N. Y. ; for a time was
rector of St. Paul's Church in Philadelphia, where his energy and elo-
quence soon made him prominent. In the spring of 18G9 he was called
to take charge of All Soul's (the Anthony Memorial I Church in New
York City, where he continued until 1902. His liberality of thought
made him widely known and brought upon him the so severe criticism
of other clergymen of his church that in 1891 he was charged by them
with entertaining "liberal religious views, and violating Canon XIII.
in admitting other denominations to his pulpit," and a board of inquiry
to investigate the charges was appointed by Bishop Potter. The matter
became of wide interest and shortly after Dr. Newton resigned his
charge. In 1903 he was appointed rector of Memorial Church and
select preacher to Leland Stanford Jr. University, in Berkeley. Calif.,
but resigned the charge in April of the same year. He was active in
his efforts to harmonize the differences in creeds and bring more unity
to the churches of California. Dr. Newton was the author of a num-
ber of sermons, and studies of the Bible and religion.

an alderman of the City of Norfolk in 1853.



The Newtons of Virginia, heads of families in the First United States
Census, 1790, are probably descended from the four men, John 3 , Joseph 3 .
Benjamin 3 , and George Newton 3 , above.



At Wilmington, Va., "the family homestead of Newtons," is the following
inscription : "Beneath this stone are deposited the remains of Mrs. Sarah New-
ton, daughter of George Eskridge, and late wife of Capt. Willowby Newton of
Westmoreland Co., who after justly established the character of dutiful
child, a faithful friend, an affectionate mother and sincere Christian, departed
this life on the 2nd of December 1753, in the 46th year of her age."

The name of Willowby, Willoughby, was an early one in the Colony of Vir-
ginia. A Thomas Willoughby 1 was a settler there, a prominent man of the
Colony and a large landholder. The Willoughbys and Newtons intermarried.
The widow, Sarah Willoughby, whose will is mentioned above, is either widow of
this Thomas 1 or his son. Mead, in his "Old Churches of Virginia, 1861," quotes:
"from an old document of Mr. Willowby Newton, father of the present Willowby,
and grandson of a Willowby Newton, I learn that at an early period four
brothers" [the proverbial four] "imigrated to Virginia. One settled in Norfolk,
another in Alexandria, one in Westmoreland and one in Stafford."

7072. JARED NEWTON 1 , from England, near Hull. The following- from
a letter of August 13, 1907, written by his descendant, Mr. Thomas W. Newton,
Little Maumee P. O., Ark. (Little Rock, Ark.), is the extent of my knowledge
of this immigrant. "My father, who was born at Alexandria. Va., many years
ago, made a chart of our branch of the Newton family, which begins, I think,
about the year 1700 with a Jared Newton, who came from England — somewhere
near Hull — and left two sons, John and William. Our side branches, I think,
from William, and whose descendants are located both north and south through-
out the United States. This chart has been copied several times for different
branches of the family and I am of the opinion the original is with my nephew,
Robert C. Newton, in business with 'Swift & Company.' Chicago, 111." 'T have
a cousin. Miss Emma Clark of Delaware City. Del., who interests herself and
knows much about the Virginia branch of the family."

The following from "Historical Families of Kentucky,"' by Green, 1889, and
an article by Professor Shim, historian of the state of Virginia, gives all I know
of the posterity of this immigrant.

7073. 1. THOMAS WILLOUGHBY NEWTON, SR. (styled "General"),
born in 1803, in Alexandria, Va.. died in New York City, 1853, aged 50 years.
In 1820, aged 17 years, he went to Arkansas — Little Rock, where he evidently



JOHN, ANTHONY, THOMAS, ET AL. gH

studied law. In 1829 he went to Shelbyville, Ky., and married Mary Kelsey
Allen, fourth daughter of Col. John and Jane (Logan) Allen of Shelbyville, Ky.
He remained at Shelbyville and practiced law until 1837, when he returned to
Arkansas, and is mentioned as "of Little Rock." He was a member of the
Twenty-ninth Congress from Arkansas. "His sons were gallant officers in the
Confederate service, and not less accomplished in civil life." The sons were :

7074. i. Robert Crittenden, b. , 18 — ; d. before 1907 ; had a son,

7075. 1. Rohert C, b. , 18—; res. Chicago, 111., in 1914.

7070. ii. Thomas Willougiiry, Jr., b. , 18 — ; living in 1014 at the "Newton

Farm, Little Manmee P. O.," near Little Rock, Ark. ; a man of ability ;
was speaker of the state house of representatives of Arkansas for several

terms; postmaster during Cleveland's first, term; m. ; wife living

in 1914, at Little Rock, Ark. "They had a large family of boys who are
all dead except the youngest," 1907, and a daughter, who was graduated
June, 1907, at Washington.



Colonel, and later General, John Allen (above) of Shelbyville, Ky., was a
hero of the War of 1812. Another of his daughters, Anna, married Col. Richard
Johnson, an editor and lawyer of Little Rock.

It seems to me that the above family of Newtons must in some way be related
to Thomas 1 of Norfolk, immigrant. I have not tried to trace any of the
Virginia Newtons— just to recognize them.



7077. THOMAS NEWTON, who seems to be the earliest immigrant of all
Newtons in Virginia, was in the Colony in 1G37 ; had wife Mary in 1639 ; and
was living in February, 1643-4.

7078. JOHN NEWTON [whether descended from the Virginia Newtons or
the Massachusetts Newtons is unknown to me] was living in Pulaski County,
Ark., on the north side of the Arkansas river — (that is across from Little Rock) —
before 1820. He was a man of family and had an estate. He died at his home
in Pulaski County, December, 1822; on November 11, 1822, his wife, Jane, died
at the same place.

7079. FENWICK NEWTON of Pulaski, Ark., appointed cadet, 1828, to
West Point Military Academy.



7080. BASIL NEWTON and LARKIN NEWTON of Crawford County,
Ark. (descent unknown to me). The "first Court of Crawford County, 1820,
was held in the storehouse of Basil Newton & Larkin Newton." In July, 1825,
Basil Newton administered on the estate of John and Mary Newton.

7081. LARKIN NEWTON married in Hampstead County, Ark., September,
1829, Mary Ann Wilson, daughter of John Wilson of that place.



7082. JESSE NEWTON of Drew County, Ark., "came there at a later
period.'"



7083. JAMES NEWTON of Calhoun County, Ark., in 1850.
