    The ancestry for him given in Newberry Genealogy: The Ancestors and Descendants of Thomas Newberry of Dorchester, Mass. (J.

(Briefly, his parents are who Bartlett said they were, but Bartlett is mistaken beyond that.) Newberry Genealogy continues to be a reliable guide to Newberry's descendants.
