Mapping the Newburgh Family
A new phase of research is beginning for the 16th century Newburgh family of East Lulworth. John Newburgh, Esquire had a large family and two marriages, which has complicated research efforts. Obtaining relevant documents to continue our story is costly when approaching various archives. Additional expenses include professional translations of medieval Latin and old English, traveling expenses, reproduction fees, and web site development.
This is an ongoing project which began in 2009 and will likely continue into the future! My colleagues and I would be grateful for your generous participation in our quest to unmask the descendants of the Newburghs who migrated to Berkeley, Somerset in 1485.
After 1485 it seems that the Newburgh/Neuburgh name changed (permutation) to Newborough. Another thing we have discovered is the arms for the Dorset group changed during the time of Henry VIII. According to my experts that would have been unconventional, so we must have a cadet line that was unknown in the past.
I would like to thank my colleagues Jacob Newbury and my editor Sally Thomson for all their dedicated work. We have such a good time following all these knights from the past.
All donations for this research are appreciated. Thanking you in advance for your kind assistance and generosity.
When the heirs of Lulworth, Dorset passed away, the families in outlying counties started using the permutation of NEWBOROUGH. Eventually the name became Newberry and other permutations.
In November I will be publishing a book titled:
The Lost Legacy of St. Andrew's Church and Medieval Lulworth. It will be available from Amazon.
