Newby History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The Newby surname is a habitational name, taken on from any of the various places in northern England, derived from the Middle English words "newe," meaning "new," and "by," meaning "farm," or "settlement."


Early Origins of the Newby family


The surname Newby was first found in Yorkshire 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.

Migration of the Newby family to the New World and Oceana


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 Newby or a variant listed above:
