About George Russell Irving Newby

Hi Ricky:

Thanks for the invitation.

How does this work?

Do I have to pay anything, I hope not.

It was just last week that I came across the information about the Newby Herald


The name Newby means, "new farm".

The Shield was given to the Newbys in the 1200 or the 1400 by the King of England. I'll

look for the information and give you the name of the King.

When I was in Florida to have my knee operated by Eduardo Raheb, I was at a shopping mall

with his wife and there was a store that for a small feewould find out the history of your sur-name,

so I did it.

My grandfather paternal's name was Albert, and they called him, Bert.

He had three brothers and I always understood that those Newby's, or perhaps my great-grandfather,

had imagrated to the States from England,

but then they went North to Canada, to Upper Canada, which I think was, Ontario.

I think that, now knowing the Newbys past history, the were probably,

Royalists and they left the States at the time of the fight for Independance from England.

My father (George Newby) ran away from home and got on a Merchant Marine boat, at 13 years old.

He never talked to his Father again. When his Father, Bert was in the hospitel and going to die,

my Mother convinced him to visit him which he did, but he didn't speak to him.

love, Mommy
