Francis Newman

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Francis_Newman

Francis Newman (died November 18,1660) was an English colonist in America, Governor of the New Haven Colony in 1658-59. He was born in England and emigrated to New Hampshire in 1634, but shortly thereafter removed to the Connecticut valley and became prominent in the affairs of the colony at New Haven.

In 1653, he was one of the commissioners sent from the Connecticut River towns to Manhattan to demand reparation of Peter Stuyvesant, Governor of New Netherlands, for injuries sustained by the English colonists at the hands of the Dutch. In July, 1654, he became one of the commissioners of the United Colonies of New England, and in May, 1658, he succeeded Eaton as Governor of the New Haven Colony.
