Emigration

John came to the English Colonies aboard the "Safety" which departed from London 10 Aug 1635 for Virginia. The "Safety" was owned by John Thierry and had a draft of 200 tons. This voyage was chartered on 5 July 1635 between William Anthony and John Grant the ship's Master.

Note

John settled in James City County, Virginia where on 1 April 1644, Henry Thompson assigned to him one hundred and fifty acres of land, situated upon "Smith's Fort Creek, joining the land of John Buckmaster, which was patented to the said Buckmaster, which patent was renewed to the said John Newman" in 1644. John appears to have resided here for about seven years, as between 1652 and 1677 he had acquired in the Northern Neck by letters patent, grant, and deeds, about 4000 acres of land, situated on both sides of Moratico Creek, in the present (circa 1903) counties of Lancaster and Richmond. He resided near Tarplay's Point, then known as Moratico or Newman's Neck.
