Newdeck History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



Today's generation of the Newdeck family bears a name that was brought to England by the migration wave that was started by the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Newdeck family lived in Breckonshire, Wales. Their name, however, is a reference to Neuf-Marche, near Neufchatel, Normandy, the family's place of residence prior to the Norman Conquest of England in 1066.

Early Origins of the Newdeck family


The surname Newdeck was first found in Breckonshire in Wales where they held a family seat from the time of the Norman Conquest of England by Duke William of Normandy in the year 1066. Bernard of Neuf-Marche near Neufchatel in Normandy, a Norman noble at Hastings, founded a priory at Bracknock which was a cell of the Battel Abbey in Sussex. His successor, Baron Newmarch was summoned to Parliament. Adam de Newmarch was Baron Newmarch.

Migration of the Newdeck family to the New World and Oceana


In England at this time, the uncertainty of the political and religious environment of the time caused many families to board ships for distant British colonies in the hopes of finding land and opportunity, and escaping persecution. The voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, though, and many arrived in North America sick, starved, and destitute. Those who did make it, however, were greeted with greater opportunities and freedoms that they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make important contributions to the young nations in which they settled. Early immigration records have shown some of the first Newdecks to arrive on North American shores: John Newmarch, who came to Rowley, MA in 1643; William Newmarch, who settled in Maryland in 1679; Jonathon Newmarsh, who settled in Virginia in 1726; H. Newmark who came to San Francisco Cal. in 1862.
