The name Newey is part of the ancient legacy of the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. It is a product of when the family lived near a yew tree. Newey is a local surname, which belongs to the category of hereditary surnames. In this case, the surname Newey comes from the Old English phrase, atten ew, which means, at the yew tree. The surname Newey may also derive from the Old English word newe, which means new. This may have been a name given to newcomers to an area, and as such, it would have been a nickname surname.

Alternatively, the name could have been for someone who lived near a yew tree, from the Old English word eow. [2]CITATION[CLOSE]

Thousands of English families in this era began to emigrate the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution.
