The origins of the Newbill name lie with England's ancient Anglo-Saxon culture. It comes from when the family lived 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 Newbill belongs to the large category of Anglo-Saxon habitation names, which are derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads.

Newbill Early Origins



The surname Newbill 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



To escape oppression and starvation at that time, many English families left for the "open frontiers" of the New World with all its perceived opportunities. In droves people migrated to the many British colonies, those in North America in particular, paying high rates for passages in cramped, unsafe ships. Although many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, those who did see the shores of North America perceived great opportunities before them. Many of the families that came from England went on to make essential contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Research into various historical records revealed some of first members of the Newbill family emigrate to North America: 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.
