Newsletter for the interchange of genealogical data and history of Newberry (and variant spellings) families who came mainly from Neubourg, in Normandy, France, and later from England and Ireland. Some allied families also came from England, Germany, Norway, Russia, Scotland, and Switzerland. The Newberry surname originated with Henry (b. 1045), the second son of Roger de Beaumont and Adeline de Meullant. Henry was given the title of Earl of Warwick, and lived at the castle of Newbourgh in Normandy, France. He married Margaret de Perche, and their son, Roger de Newburgh (1090-1153) later became second Earl of Warwick. Most Newberry's (and variant spellings) descended from this ancestor. Some focus is on (but not limited to) ancestors and descendants of John Newberry (died ca. 1827) and his wife Hannah Clayton. Hannah married Timothy Hurley after John died. Immigrant ancestors first settled in Barbados, Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Rhode Island, and Virginia in the 1600's. In the 1700's, some settled in Nova Scotia (Canada), the Leeward Islands, and in Georgia, Maryland, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and South Carolina. During the 1800's, some moved to Australia, and to Alabama, Arkansas, California, Florida, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Vermont, Washington, and Wisconsin. Later descendants and relatives also lived in the China, and in Alaska, Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, Minnesota, Nevada, New Hampshire, Oregon, Utah, Washington D.C., Wyoming, the Indian Territory, and elsewhere.
