The Anglo-Saxon name Newbern comes from when the family resided in the settlement of Newbald in the East Riding of Yorkshire, or in one of the various places called Newbold in the counties of Cheshire, Derbyshire, Lancashire, Leicestershire, Northamptonshire, Nottinghamshire, Warwickshire, and Worcestershire. The surname Newbern belongs to the large category of Anglo-Saxon habitation names, which are derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads.

Newbern Early Origins



The surname Newbern was first found in Wiltshire where they held a family seat from early times and their first records appeared on the early census rolls taken by the early Kings of Britain to determine the rate of taxation of their subjects.

The Great Migration



For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Newbern or a variant listed above: Richard Newbolt, who arrived in Barbados in 1635; Francis Newball, who settled in Virginia in 1651; Godfrey, John and Michael Newbold, who all came to New Jersey in 1677.
