ENGLISH FAMILIES OF THE NAME OF NEW
The book "English Families of the Name of New" was published in 1886 by Philip Percy New, following publication of two sheets, Pedigrees A & B, for the Evesham NEW family.The book contained Pedigree Charts (4 pages) for his own family of Evesham, and single page charts for a NEW family of Defford and another of Worcester.Also included were charts for a NEW family of Bristol, NEW of Wantage, and NEW of Burbage and another for Bristol on the same page.And finally for NEW of St. Albans, possibly extinct.The book also included a transcription of the 1579 Will of William Newe.
I have compiled a Supplement which includes all the charts from P.P.New's book, amended as thought necessary, together with some more that I have collected, and a transcription of the 1721 Will of James New of Evesham.A few copies of this Supplement have been produced and are being placed some in Record Offices and Libraries.
