Numark is a name that was brought to England by the ancestors of the Numark family when they migrated to the region after the Norman Conquest in 1066. The Numark 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.

The Great Migration



For many English families, the social climate in England was oppressive and lacked opportunity for change. For such families, the shores of Ireland, Australia, and the New World beckoned. They left their homeland at great expense in ships that were overcrowded and full of disease. Many arrived after the long voyage sick, starving, and without a penny. But even those were greeted with greater opportunity than they could have experienced back home. Numerous English settlers who arrived in the United States and Canada at this time went on to make important contributions to the developing cultures of those countries. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Numark were among those contributors: 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.
