A very helpful document on Richard is found at Ancestry. -------------------- Birth: Apr. 9, 1609 Lincolnshire, England Death: Jun. 23, 1697 Marlborough Middlesex County Massachusetts, USA

I've found two different death years for Richard. 1697 and 1701. I go with 1697. Richard was the son of Robert Isaac and Thankful Newton. One of the many stories about Richard is that he just might be a brother of the father of Sir Isaac Newton....That is still being worked on by me.

Richard's first wife was Alice. They married in England and had two children: Anne and Richard, Jr. Richard came to America in 1638 at Sudbury, Middlesex County in Massechusetts.

He married his 2nd. wife Anne or Hannah Loker. Anne was recorded being born August 1, 1605 in Bures St. Mary County Essex, England. Anna died Dec 5, 1691 in Marlborough, MA. Thus it makes sence that he married the second time in England as well.

He is said to have died at Marlborough Mass, August 24, 1701? "aged about a hundred".

Children of Richard Newton and Anne Loker, all born in the USA were:

John Newton b 20 Oct 1641 Sudbury Mass
