The Anglo-Saxon name Newstead comes from when the family resided near a yew tree. Newstead is a local surname, which belongs to the category of hereditary surnames. In this case, the surname Newstead comes from the Old English phrase, atten ew, which means, at the yew tree. The surname Newstead 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.

Newstead Early Origins



The surname Newstead was first found in Cambridgeshire. Castle Newe was a mansion house, situated in Aberdeenshire, built in 1831 by Archibald Simpson. Newe House, a manor house in the village of Pakenham, Suffolk remains today as it was built in 1622 by Sir Robert Bright. Neither of these edifices have any relation to the surname.

The Great Migration



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 Newstead or a variant listed above: Richard New who settled in Virginia in 1638; followed by Thomas and Elizabeth New in 1670; John New settled in the Bahamas in 1660; James New, with his wife and six children, settled in Boston Massachusetts in 1769.
