Newhouse History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms
- Origins Available:
The name Newhouse reached England in the great wave of migration following the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Newhouse family lived in Yorkshire. The name Newhouse is topographical in nature and is of obvious derivation, indicating that its original bearer lived in a such a house as is described. Some cases of the name are taken from any of several small localities which are so named because they held a new house.
Early Origins of the Newhouse family
The surname Newhouse was first found in Yorkshire, where they held a family seat from early times as Lords of the manor of Neuhuse. This small collection of houses near Gisburn was held by William Percy at the time of the taking of the Domesday Book survey in the year 1086 A.D.

Newhouse Spelling Variations
Before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Sound was what guided spelling in the Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Newhouse family name include Neuhouse, Newhouse, Neuhuse and others.

The passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe; however, those who made the voyage safely were encountered opportunities that were not available to them in their homeland. Many of the families that reached the New World at this time went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations of the United States and Canada. Research into various historical records has revealed some of first members of the Newhouse family to immigrate North America:
