Newbert History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

The present generation of the Newbert family is only the most recent to bear a name that dates back to the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of Britain.

The surname Newbert belongs to the large category of Anglo-Saxon habitation names, which are derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads.
Early Origins of the Newbert family
The surname Newbert 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.

Consequently, spelling variations in names are frequently found in early Anglo-Saxon and later Anglo-Norman documents. One person's name was often spelled several different ways over a lifetime. The recorded variations of Newbert include Newbold, Newbolt, Newboult, Newball, Nubold and many more.

Newbert migration to the United States
Thousands of English families boarded ships sailing to the New World in the hope of escaping the unrest found in England at this time. Although the search for opportunity and freedom from persecution abroad took the lives of many because of the cramped conditions and unsanitary nature of the vessels, the opportunity perceived in the growing colonies of North America beckoned. Many of the settlers who survived the journey went on to make important contributions to the transplanted cultures of their adopted countries. The Newbert were among these contributors, for they have been located in early North American records:
