Descendants of

William NEWBY and Isabell [-?-]

Descendants of William NEWBY and Isabell [-?-]

N.B. Another file containing information about Descendants of John NEWBY and Magdalene [-?-] follows the end notes of this first section.

  First Generation

 

1. William NEWBY was born about 1630 probably in England. He died about 1704 in Perquimans County, North Carolina. William married Isabell [-?-] about 1655 in Virginia. Isabell was born about 1630. She died between 1687 when she witnessed the marriage of her son, Nathan, and 1701 the date of her husband’s second marriage in Perquimans. They lived in Nasemond and Isle of Wight Counties in Virginia before moving to Perquimans County, North Carolina.  

    William marrried 2nd Jane Byer 3 7mo (Sep) 1701, Perquimans Monthly Meeting.  Jane had a son named William Moore to whom she gave a patent of land on 12 Aug (they weren’t married yet, I wonder if this should have been 8th month, Oct) 1701, "from me and my now husband, William Newby, after the death of both of us."

    "At a court Hould For ye Pcinct of Perquimans at ye House of Thomas Nichols ye Recent Monday In Aprill 1696. Present ye Justices of ye Court." "Jane Byer proved Rites for nine psons transported Into this county whose names ar underwreten and Asigned to timothy Cleare vis his selfe, Richard Byer, Lawrence Nogell, Jane Byer, Robert Boge, Wm Boge, Margaret Boge, William Moore, James Loadman. Timothy Clare proves one Write for his wife Elizabeth… They would be elligible for 50 acres per headrite.

      William and Isabel’s names were on the marriage certificate of their son Nathan, who married Elizabeth Hollowell on the 13 10mo (Dec) 1687. In 1704 William purchased an acre of land from William Bogue for use of the Quakers (Wells Meeting House), Perquimans.

      From the History of Perquimans County, North Carolina by Mrs. Watson Winslow: A Henry Newby was transported to Virginia in the Thomas & John on 6 Jan 1635. A William Newby came from London to New England in Mary, & John on 24 Mar 1633, age 24.  (Hotten.)  The records of Nansemond County, Virginia show that William Newby was a resident of said county 13 10mo (Dec) 1684, when he witnessed a marriage with his wife, Izabell at Chuckatuck Monthly Meeting. As neither of his two sons, had a wife by that name, and the name of Isabel came down in the family for several generations, among his descendants, it seems natural to assume that this "Izabell" was William Newby's wife. There may be deeds that also confirm this. His sons named on Chuckatuck Register were Gabriel, who was the first to migrate to Perquimans and Nathan, who was a Quaker minister about 1707.

      In the book Early Quaker Records in Virginia compiled by Miles White, Jr. there is a Jonathan Newby also listed as a witness to the marriage of Leavin Bufkin and Dorrithy Newby daughter of William 17 2mo (Apr) 1688. Another possible child for William and Isabell is Samuel who is mentioned in this book, and Edward who died about 1702 in Surry County, Virginia. There was a Thomas Newby living in Isle of Wight County, Virginia in 1671, who may also have been related and a Thomas Newby of Virginia mentioned in Perquimans County, North Carolina records.

 

We are descended from both known sons, Nathan and Gabriel. A “+” marks our line.

 

William and Isabell had the following children:

+          2 M      i.   Nathan NEWBY was born about 1663 (below).

+ 3 F     ii.   Gabriel NEWBY was born about 1665 and died on 25 Feb 1735 (follows Nathan’s family.

           4 M   iii.   Dorothy NEWBY was born about 1668 in Surry County, Virginia. Dorothy married[1] Leaven Bufkin on the 17 2mo (Apr) 1688. They had Levin Bufkin b.8 12mo (Feb) 1688/9. She married 2nd Matthew Jordan son of Thomas and Margaret (Brasseur) Jordan, 6 7mo (Sep) 1699.

 

 

 

Second Generation

 

     

2. Nathan NEWBY (William) was born about 1663 in Nansemond County, Virginia. He probably died in Nansemond County. Nathan married[2] Elisabeth HOLLOWELL, daughter of Thomas HOLLOWELL and Alice, on 13 10mo (Dec) 1687[3], at her mother's house in Elizabeth River, Nansemond County, Virginia. Elisabeth was born[4] on 9 7mo (Sep) 1662 in Norfolk.

Second Generation

 

 

3. Gabriel NEWBY (William) was born about 1664/5 in Surry County, Virginia. He died on 25 Feb 1735, in his 70th year, in Perquimans County, North Carolina.  Gabriel was a wheelwright and a lawyer. Gabriel married[11] Mary TOMS, daughter of Francis TOMS and Prishilla, on 1 4mo (Jun) 1689, at the house of Ann Nicholson County of Albemaryl. (Perquimans was not a County yet.) Mary was born on 27 Jun 1670 in Perquimans. She died on 26 Jan 1738 in Perquimans, at age 70 (If the dates are correct she was 67). Gabriel was the first of his family to migrate to Perquimans County. Gabriel and his family were active in the Quaker church.

 

Gabriel and Mary had the following children:

   13 M  i.   William NEWBY was born[12] on 13 1mo (Mar) 1690 in Perquimans County, North Carolina. He died about 1719 in Perquimans. William married Ann Henley in 1718.  After his death in 1719 she married John Hollowell of Virginia, 21 Mar 1720.

              14 M ii.  Edward NEWBY was born[13] on 12 10mo (Dec) 1691 in Perquimans County, North Carolina. He died in 1720/1721 in Surry County, Virginia. Edward married[14] Mary Hage/Haig daughter of William and Mary Hage of Pasquotank, 17 1mo (Mar) 1719/20 at upper meeting.  She married[15] 2nd Ralph Bufkin 15 1mo (Mar) 1721/2. Edward in his will[16] d.s.p. Perquimans County, 6 Aug 1717 names father Gabriel, and brother William Newby. Mary is not mentioned in his will, perhaps because he made his will before he married. It sounds like he was not well before his marriage.

             15 M iii.  Joseph NEWBY was born[17] on 27 9mo (Nov) 1693 in Perquimans County, North Carolina. Joseph married[18] 1st Elizabeth Nixon daughter of Zachariah and Elizabeth (Page) Nixon of Little River, 1 1mo Mar 1715; 2nd Mary (Clare) Mayo, widow of Edward Mayo and daughter of Timothy Clare, 3 6mo (Aug) 1726, 3rd Patience (Jordan) “widow Jordan” 15 Feb 1749/50 at Pagan Creek Monthly Meeting, Isle of Wight, Virginia.  His daughter Elizabeth married Joseph Mayo, son of Edward and Mary (Clare) Mayo in 1743, it looks like she married her future step-brother.

 

                           Joseph’s will, dated 11 9mo (Sep) 1766, proved in Perquimans Oct 1766 names sons: Gabriel, Joseph, Benjamin, and "poor decrepit son Josiah" whom he left "in care" of his other sons, wife Patience.  Dau's: Mary Thornton, Elizabeth Mayo (wife of Joseph), gr-son Joseph Thurston, granddaughter Mary Newby, Elizabeth Newby (wife of Francis, Joseph’s brother, and daughter of Matthew Jordan and his last wife Patience) and her son Matthew Newby, wife Patience. Brother Samuel and son Gabriel Executors[19].

+        16 M   iv.  Francis NEWBY was born[20] on 3 11mo (Jan) 1695/1696 and died about 1744.  He married Huldah Hunnicutt. (Family to follow in third generation.)

She married 2nd Benjamin Pritchard in 1729, 3rd Thomas Pierce in 1744. Isabel and Thomas’ deaths were reported at Symons Creek MM, Pasquotank on 3 Aug 1758.

           19   vii.  Meriam NEWBY was born on 2 Feb 1701 in Perquimans County, North Carolina. She probably died young

20 M   viii. Jesse NEWBY was born[25] on 30 May 1704 in Perquimans County, North Carolina. Jesse married[26] Mary HUNNICUTT, daughter of Robert HUNNICUTT and Margaret WYKE of Prince George County, Virginia, 9 Jan 1727/8 at Henrico Monthly Meeting, Prince George. Mary was born about 1706 in Virginia. She was the sister of Huldah who married his brother Francis. His will names his brothers so he probably didn't have any living children[27].

21 F       ix. Elizabeth NEWBY was born[28] about 1705 in Perquimans County, North Carolina. She died on 10 Jul 1730 in Perquimans. Elizabeth married[29] John Nixon son of Zachariah and Elizabeth (Symons) Nixon, 10 7mo (Sep) 1729 at the house of Gabriel Newby.

          22    x.  Samuel NEWBY was born about 1708 in Perquimans County, North Carolina. He died between 1771 and 1774 in Perquimans. He may have married Ann Mayo (daughter of Edward Mayo, Jr.and Mary Clare daughter of Timothy Clare) on 4 Dec 1729 (Ann was only 15 years old) and their daughter Jemima Newby married William Newby (b.22 Sep 1727 in North Carolina, d.1784) on 6 Jul 1749 and had a daughter named Ann Newby b.16 May 1750 in North Carolina, d.about 1845 in Henry County, Indiana.  Samuel married 2nd Elizabeth Sanders daughter of Benjamin and Ann Sanders 1 Oct 1740. "Gabriel in his will left to son Samuel his "Manner Plantation" which was usually given to the youngest son for better maintenance of the widow and mother, the youngest son was usually single."[30]

       

 

Third Generation

 

 

16. Francis NEWBY (Gabriel, William) was born[31] on 3 11mo (Jan) 1695/1696 in Perquimans County, North Carolina. He died about 1744 in Perquimans. Francis married[32] Huldah HUNNICUTT, daughter of Robert HUNNICUTT and Margaret WYKE, on 7 12mo (Feb) 1723 at Henrico Monthly Meeting in Prince George County, Virginia[33]. Huldah was born about 1701.  (SEE HUNNICUTT FAMILY)

 

Francis Newby’s will dated 18 Mar 1743 proved April Court 1744, names sons: Robert, Jesse, Mark and Francis, Daus: Margaret and Sarah, Exec: Robert, Mark, Francis and Jessee Newby, Wit: Susannah Wood, Mary Wilson, Rt. Wilson, Clerk of court, Edmund Hatch. Perquimans[34].

 

On 12 2mo (Apr) 1722 a certificate was received for Francis Newby from Perquimans Monthly Meeting (MM) dated 11 4mo (June) 1722 giving Francis permission to marry Huldah Hunicutt with consent of his parents, Gabrill Newby and Mary Newby. On 11 3mo (May) 1722 Francis Newby and Huldah Hunicut (sic) announce their intention to marry. The marriage records in Henrico Monthly Meeting call Francis the son of Gabriall Newby, Jr. (was this a transcription error or was there an older Gabriel Newby in the area at the same time) of North Carolina and Huldah Hunnicut daughter of Robt. Hunicut of Prince George County Virginia. The witnesses were: James Benford, John Benfore, Wm. Heath, Robt. Cate, Thos. Chapell, Thos. Talor, Mary Hunicut, Eizabth. Talor, Margaret Hunicut, John Chapman, Coralites(?) Gergall(?), Wm. Reves(?), Gabrell Newby, Robert Hunnicut, Wika Hunnicut, Jesse Newby[35]. This process can get quite involved, the Quakers had to make sure they were free to marry, have the parent's permission, and were not closely related.

 

Huldah probably died before Francis since she is not mentioned in his will. She may have been born in Prince George County, Virginia

 

Francis and Huldah had the following children:

             23 M    i. Robert NEWBY was born on 16 Apr 1724 in Perquimans County, North Carolina. Robert married[36] Jemimah Pierce daughter of Thomas 1 Jun 1748, Perquimans

Mark was reported married [38]to Mourning PHELPS, daughter of Jonathan PHELPS and Elizabeth TOMS, 4  2mo (Apr) 1750 at the house of Zachariah Nixon, her step father, in Perquimans Monthly Meeting. Mourning was born[39] on 10 Dec 1732 in Perquimans. She died before 1775 in Perquimans. Mark intended to marry 2nd Keziah Nixon, widow 1, 11m (Nov) 1775; declared they didn't find the way clear, 5 1m (Jan) 1780.  Marriage never accomplished. He died in his 59th year and had been an elder for many years.

+       25 F       iii. Margaret NEWBY was born[40] on 29 May 1728 in Perquimans County, North Carolina. She died before 1789 in Perquimans. Margaret declared her intentions to marry[41] Henry PHELPS, son of Jonathan PHELPS and Elizabeth TOMS, on 3 Aug 1748 in Perquimans . Henry was born[42] on 5 Mar 1724/1725 in Perquimans. He died between May and Jul 1752[43] in Perquimans. Margaret was reported married 2nd to Joseph Outland on 3 Oct 1753 at Perquimans Monthly Meeting[44] she probably died before 1789 when Joseph's will[45] was made because she is not mentioned. Joseph Outland mentions, daughters: Mary, Sarah, and Martha. (SEE PHELPS FAMILY)

             26 F iv.   Miriam NEWBY was born[46] on 20 Apr 1730 in Perquimans County, North Carolina. Miriam is not mentioned in her father's will.

             27 M   v. Jesse NEWBY was born[47] about 1732 in Perquimans County, North Carolina. He died[48] between 19 May 1764 and Oct 1765 in Pasquotank County, North Carolina. In his will he mentions brother Francis Newby, cousins Elizabeth and Jonathan Phelps, brothers Robert and Mark Newby and Ralph Fletcher, Executors Mark Newby and Ralph Fletcher[49].

             28 F vi.   Sarah NEWBY was born about 1734 in Perquimans County, North Carolina.

Descendants of

John NEWBY and Magdalene [-?-]

 

First Generation

 

   1. John NEWBY was born about 1650. He died about 1692. John married Magdalene   [-?-] about 1670 in Virginia. Magdalene was born about 1655.

 

          I am not sure how this family fits in with the rest but there was a Jonathan Newby listed as a witness to Dorrithy Newby's marriage in Nansemond County, Virginia with the other Newbys and it seems he died before William Newby, the head of my Newby line. He may have been a relative of William. They seem to be closely associated. Other possible children were: John, who declared his intentions to marry Elizabeth Nicholson on 26 4m (Jun) 1701; Gabriel (Gabriel is a name that appears in my line of Newbys and is unusual, which makes me think they are probably related), Elizabeth b.1676 married John White 14 11m (Jan) 1696 at the house of Matthew Collin. She may have been Collin's stepdaughter, she is called daughter-in-law in Pasquotank Monthly Meeting (MM) Records[1].

 

They had the following children:

+           2 M    i. James NEWBY was born in 1672.

               3 F   ii. Rebecca NEWBY was born in 1678 in Nansemond County, Virginia. She died about 1750 in North Carolina. Rebecca declared her intentions to marry Jacob Overman 7 10m (Dec) 1699[2]

Children[3]: Rebecca b.17 9m (Nov) 1700

           John b.23 7m (Sep) 1702

           Thomas b.20 6m (Aug) 1704

                                                       Jacob b.27 12m (Feb) 1705/6

   Hannah b.8 5m (Jul) 1708

                           Charles b.12 12m (Feb) 1710/11

                           Joseph b.20 12m (Feb) 1712/3

                                      Jeams b.7m (Sep) 1715

 

          The children's marriage records are recorded in both Pasquotank and Perquimans MM. A Sarah, widow of John, intended to marry Joseph White 4 4m (Jun) 1730[4].

 

 

 

Second Generation

 

 

          2. James NEWBY (John) was born in 1672 in Norfolk, Virginia. James married[5] Sarah NICHOLSON, daughter[6] of Christopher NICHOLSON and Ann ATWOOD. On 5 5m (Jul) 1699 Sarah announced her intentions to marry (itm) at Little River MM, Perquimans County, North Carolina[7].  She died[8] on 13 3m (May) 1717/8 in Perquimans. James married 2nd Elizabeth (White) Davis daughter of Henry and Mary White, 18 5m (Jul) 1719[9], she died 1 23m (Feb) 1728, aged 55[10]. He married 3rd a woman who was not a Quaker and was disowned in 1729[11]. 

 

          James is mentioned among the suffering because of church rates and priest's dues. Everyone was required to support the state church regardless of whether they were members or not. They were also fined for non-attendance of the state church, the Episcopal Church of England.
