Thomas NEWMAN (1668-1744)

and Ann DAVIS (1684-1760)

 

St. Mary's Church, Shipley, circa 1905 - from:  http://www.westsussexpast.org.uk/pictures/index.htmlThomas Newnham and Ann Davis were my 6x Great Grandparents.  (Click here to see their place in my pedigree chart.)  They married on 10 April 1711 at the parish church of St. Mary's in Shipley, Sussex.  He was then described as junior.  This may have been Thomas's second or third marriage.  He first married Ann Deane on 6 November 1693 in Thakeham, Sussex, at which time he was of Shipley.  He may then have married Hannah sometime between 1696 and 1699, or Ann and Hannah may have been one and the same, which I think is most likely.

Thomas Newman was baptised on 9 October 1668 in Shipley.  He was the son of Thomas Newman (c1630-1713) and Mary Hunt (1630-1705).  He was buried on 12 April 1744 in Shipley.  Thomas left a will dated 14 October 1741 and proved on 5 May 1744, in which he was described as a tailor of Shipley.  (Click here to read my transcript of his will.)  His grandfather may have been John Newman who was also a tailor and at one time of Billingshurst, although he was of Pulborough when he died.

Ann Deane's date and place of birth are unknown, to me.  She may have been buried on 30 November 1705 in Shipley, but the burial register records that it was Hannah Newman wife of Thomas Newman who was buried.  The Sussex marriage index does not record the marriage of a Thomas Newman or Newnham to Hannah before 1705.  A Hannah Deane was baptised on 22 December 1673 in Thakeham, the daughter of Thomas Deane and Joan, and there was also a Hanna Deane baptised on 29 March 1676 in Shipley, the daughter of Richard Deane.  Or was she baptised as An Deane in March 1661, the daughter of Thomas Deane and Joan?

Ann Davis's date and place of birth/baptism are unknown, to me.  She was buried on 8 May 1760 in Shipley and the burial register recorded that she was a widow.  Might she have been baptised as Ann Davey on 3 March 1683/4 in Shipley and have been the daughter of William Davy and Mary Lau (?-1705)?  There was also an Ann Davy baptised on 16 October 1690 in Horsham, the daughter of Thomas Davy and Anne.

 

Thomas Newman and Ann Deane may have had the following children:

  1. Mary Newman was baptised on 18 January 1695/6 in Shipley.  She had died by the time her father made his will in 1741, in which he simply named her as his daughter Mary.  Her father left one shilling a piece to Mary's children, but he did not name them in his will.  She may have been buried as Mary Pavy on 14 May 1738 in Shipley.

    Mary may have married John Pavy on 14 September 1724 in Shipley.  Or was it her cousin Mary born in 1707?

    John may have married Rachel Rowland on 7 February 1744/5 in Horsham.  She may have been born on 20 December 1706 and baptised as Rachell Rouland in December 1706 in Horsham, the daughter of Thomas Rouland and Elizabeth Woodman.

    John and Mary had the following known children:

    1. Charles Pavy was baptised on 8 October 1727 in Shipley.

      Charles married Sarah Penfold on 2 May 1751 in Shipley.

    2. Thomas Pavy was baptised on 12 October 1729 in Shipley.

    3. Mary Pavey was baptised on 20 June 1736 in Shipley.

      Mary may have married William Shaw by licence on 1 June 1760 in Horsham.  He was a husbandman and they were both of Horsham.  The witness to their marriage were John Pavey and Jane Hunt.

  2. John Newman was baptised on 25 August 1699 in Shipley.  His mother's name was recorded in the baptism register as Hannah.  He was buried on 8 October 1702 in Shipley.

 

Thomas Newman and Ann Davis had 5 known children:

  1. Sarah Newnham was baptised on 23 July 1711 in Shipley.  She was buried on 11 July 1775 in Shipley and the burial register recorded that she was a widow.  She was mentioned in her father's will.

    As Sarah Newman she married William Randall on 2 March 1730/1 in Shipley.

    William and Sarah had the following known children:

    1. Edward Randell was baptised on 22 July 1732 in Shipley and buried there on 9 December 1732.

    2. Ann Randal was baptised in December 1734 in Shipley.

    3. Sarah Randall was baptised on 2 January 1736/7 in Shipley.

    4. William Randall was baptised on 6 February 1739/40 in Shipley.  He may have been buried on 1 November 1782 in Shipley.

    5. Mary Randall was baptised on 15 January 1743/4 in Shipley.

    6. Elizabeth Randall was baptised on 15 January 1746/7 in Shipley.

    7. Thomas Randall was baptised on 4 February 1749/50 in Shipley.  He may have been buried on 25 April 1797 or 26 Apirl 1804 in Shipley.

  2. Thomas Newnham was baptised on 18 November 1714 in Shipley.  He was appointed the sole executor of his father's will.  He may have been buried on 14 March 1773 in Pulborough.

    Thomas may have married Betty Serjeant on 10 June 1742 in Itchingfield, Sussex.  He was then of Shipley and she of Itchingfield.

    Thomas and Betty were issued a settlement certificate on 13 April 1751 by Shipley parish overseers, allowing them to settle in Pulborough.

    Thomas and Betty had 2 known children:

    1. Sarah Newman was baptised on 22 August 1756 in Pulborough.  Only her father's name was recorded in the baptism register.

    2. Thomas Newman was baptised on 30 April 1758 in Pulborough.  Only his father's name was recorded in the baptism register.

  3. John Newman seems to have been baptised twice, firstly on 14 March 1716/7 and then on 1 November 1717, both times in Shipley.  He was mentioned in his father's will.  He may have married Mary Streater in 1747.  (They have their own page.)

  4. James Newman was baptised in February 1719/20 in Shipley.  He was mentioned in his father's will.  Was he buried on 13 April 1776 in Shipley?
