  • Notes 
    • Emigrated 1634 on the Recovery out of Weymouth. He was a dry-goods merchant. A resident of Dorchester in Sep 1634, when he was admitted a freeman. Townsman or Selectman in 1634 and 1635. Deputy to the General Court, 1635.

      The ancestry for him given in Newberry Genealogy: The Ancestors and Descendants of Thomas Newberry of Dorchester, Mass. (J. Gardner Bartlett, Boston: 1914), and reproduced in the eighth edition of Ancestral Roots (line 253), has been substantially discredited; see various posts to SGM in October and November of 2011 for a discussion of this. (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.
