The name Newbon first arose amongst the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. It is derived from their having 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 Newbon belongs to the large category of Anglo-Saxon habitation names, which are derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads.

Newbon Early Origins



The surname Newbon 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



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 Newbon arrived in North America very early: 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.
