I just added material on Newells from Burnt Head and the Brigus / Georgetown area who served in WWI. Five Newells from Burnt Head served in the Canadian Army during WWI; two of which died overseas. Two other Newells from the Brigus / Georgetown area also server; one of which died overseas. Along with those from ‘The Dock’ this makes at least 12 Newells from Conception Bay North who served, 6 of which died overseas.
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.
I have just started entering a Bio for Jane Reed (more to come)
I have just added a section on WWI under the Newells of The Dock.
I have just started a new section with bios on some related Newells.
The first of these is on Harold Newell
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.
I recently added a new page (My 1971 Family tree) under the “The Dock Nfld” Tab.
This page has a photo of the Newell family tree I prepared in 1971.
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.
I just posted (under UK Newells / Bristol Tab) the results of my recent research on John Newall, merchant of Bristol, England who operated in Harbour Grace, Nfld. in the late 18th and early 19th centuries. In this paper I speculate on a possible connection between this John Newall and John Noel of Brigus.
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.
