New material Added

I have just added a new section on the Newells of North River. This is saved under a new Tab “Other Nfld Newells” (see menu below).

I have also added photos of Jane Reed and photos and other information on Lewis Newell under the WWI Tab.

Update on Newalls of Scotland

I have recently started posting the results of my research on the Newalls of SW Scotland.  This is posted under the UK Newells Tab.   This started as a offshoot of my research on Richard Newall and his links to Scotland (the origin of the colonist he was helping to transport to Nova Scotia). The research started as a small side project but I became interested on the stories of the Newalls of Dumfries and Kirkcudbrightshire and it grew into a much larger undertaking which required splitting my report into different files.

I have currently posted the results covering the period up to 1603 in the file SW Scotland I under the UK Newells Tab and for 1604-1649 in SW Scotland II.  I have more material covering the 17th, 18th and early 19th centuries which I plan to post in the near future.

Richard Newall in Ireland 1624

I have recently posted a new research paper describing Richard Newall’s letters from Ireland in 1624.  It is posted under the Richard Newall Tab,  sub-menu Ireland 1624.

In the spring of 1624 Richard Newall was sent to Wexford, Ireland by William Clobery (Cloberry) to oversee the loading of the ship Mayflower with a cargo of pipe-staves.  This paper includes information on Richard’s activities in Ireland, the people involved in the export of pipe-staves from Ireland and a review of information on the ship Mayflower.

Moving Ahead

I have recently started adding some very preliminary material on Newells from outside “The Dock” (posted under the New World Tab). This includes some of my earlier research on James Newell of Halifax N.S.; an introduction to the Newells of Trinity and Bonavista, Newfoundland and a very brief introduction to the Noels of Harbour Grace, Newfoundland.  I am currently working on the first post for the UK and should have it ready in a week or so. This is totally new material that includes links to Newfoundland.

Welcome to my Site

The basic core of the site is now online so I would like to take this opportunity to welcome  visitors and to  remind you that I will be adding new material so check back later for more info.

The core material now online includes: my paper on Richard Newall who visited Newfoundland in 1623; some of my early research on the Newells of “The Dock”, Newfoundland and a summary of my findings regarding DNA. In the near future I hope to add more material related to Richard Newall and start posting my research on different families of Newells (and related names) in the UK.
