An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2016


The ancient roots of the New family name are in the Anglo-Saxon culture. The name New comes from when the family lived near a yew tree. New is a local surname, which belongs to the category of hereditary surnames. In this case, the surname New comes from the Old English phrase, atten ew, which means, at the yew tree. The surname New may also derive from the Old English word newe, which means new. This may have been a name given to newcomers to an area, and as such, it would have been a nickname surname.

New Early Origins



The surname New was first found in Cambridgeshire. Castle Newe was a mansion house, situated in Aberdeenshire, built in 1831 by Archibald Simpson. Newe House, a manor house in the village of Pakenham, Suffolk remains today as it was built in 1622 by Sir Robert Bright. Neither of these edifices have any relation to the surname.

The Great Migration

The Great Migration



At this time, the shores of the New World beckoned many English families that felt that the social climate in England was oppressive and lacked opportunity for change. Thousands left England at great expense in ships that were overcrowded and full of disease. A great portion of these settlers never survived the journey and even a greater number arrived sick, starving, and without a penny. The survivors, however, were often greeted with greater opportunity than they could have experienced back home. These English settlers made significant contributions to those colonies that would eventually become the United States and Canada. An examination of early immigration records and passenger ship lists revealed that people bearing the name New arrived in North America very early:
