Emigration

Robert was aboard the ship "Neptune" and after six weeks at sea arrived in Virginia in August. This voyage was reported to be especially harsh; it departed London on 16 March 1618 with 180 emigrants and only 150 survived. Among the unfortunate passengers was Lord Delaware who was reported to have died enroute on 7 June 1618.

Residence

According to the "Muster of Inhabitants of Virginia Settlements", Robert lived in Elizabeth Cittie with 7 other people. Their provisions were: "Corne, 10 barreles; Fish, 200 ct.; houses, 1; Armes: peeces, 5; swords, 2; Coate of male, 1; powder,2 lb; lead, 40 lb." (Elizabeth Cittie on the south side of Hampton Roads became New Norfolk in 1636.) In early 1625, he was still there and was sharing a home with a partner, William Gayne.

Note

On 11 November 1635, Robert, the Planter of Blunt Point, was granted "all that land &c. as is expressed in the latter pattent conteyning by estimation 450 acres of land, which sd. Perret now hath or late had in his possession. See Parrot's patt.page 170 of this book. (No. 1)" Payment was 2,500 lbs of good and merchantable tobacco with casque. On 22 November 1635, Robert Newman was granted "50 acres upper County of New Norfolk, Virginia lying in Nanzamund [sic] River betweene his new dwelling house and the house of Frances Hoofe. Due for the transport of 1 servent, Job[e] Jefferies." (Upper County of New Norfolk became Nansemond County in 1642.) Robert was granted "150 acres Upper County of New Norfolk, Virginia on the Nansamund River, on the south side of said river, adjoining the land of John Parrott, beginning at Parakero Point. Due by assignment from Lt. John Upton." on 21 September 1637.

Robert was granted "650 acres Warwick River County, Virgina on 10 March 1639 (see patent book page 660) A ridge of land between the persimon ponds & the gr.

Note

Court records, unfortunately, can also reveal unfavorable family history. On 30 June 1640, a decision of the Virginia General Court rendered the following verdict: "Whereas complaint hath been made unto this board that Robert Newman hath (contrary to an act of the Assembly in that case made and provided) traded with certain servants belonging to Captain Samuel Mathews; and whereas it appeareth by a petition exhibited to this board on the behalf of the said Newman, whereby he confesseth that he hath bartered with certain of the said servants to the value of sixty pounds of tobacco, it is therefore ordered that the said Robert Newman shall satisfy and pay unto the said Captain Mathews four times the value so bartered for, being the quantity of two hundred and forty pounds of tobacco, and also he shall suffer one month's imprisonment in the custody of the sheriff of Warwick River, who is required to see due execution thereof according to the true intent and meaning of the said act."
