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".

Biography 1

From - THE ANCESTRY OF REUBEN NEWTON (1774 - 1833) By Myron L. Newton, Jr.

Richard Newton was born about 1601 or possibly Jan. 18, 1590 in Bures, St. Mary, Suffolk, England. He arrived in the Colonies from England around 1638 at about age 37 at the time, plus or minus a year. His actual birth year and age have never been firmly established. Rather, they were extrapolated from notes found in his official record of death. Nor has his place of birth or residence in England been established. Ermina ?supposes? that Richard and his future wife may have known each other in England, but no proof is offered for this comment.

Richard was one of the original settlers of the Town of Sudbury, a new settlement within the Massachusetts Bay Company boundaries. A map of the original Sudbury settlement, showing the location of Richard Newton's house-lot, may be viewed on the Internet (also see references). In 1645, Richard became a "freeman" meaning, among other things, that he had the right to hold public office and pledged to uphold the laws of the Government. Another document, from 1647, indicated that Richard was a debtor to the estate of Nathaniel Sparrowhawke of Cambridge. It is unknown if this debt was incurred for travel to the Colonies, or for monies used to improve his newly acquired land.

In 1660, the ?plantation? of Marlborough was laid out and settled by thirty-eight individuals, many of them Sudbury's residents. Richard was granted, or drew by lot, thirty acres of land in this new development. Marlborough is only a few miles west of Sudbury and, as Sudbury had been earlier, abutted Indian territory. Skirmishes with the native Indians were not uncommon. A copy of the document allotting house-lots in Marlborough may be viewed on the Internet(also see references). Richard?s original land in Marlborough became part of Southborough in 1727.

Over the years Richard acquired additional land and when he died, on August 24, 1701, he owned about 130 acres. Into the official record of his death was added ?almost a hundrid (sic) years old? by the town clerk. Richard may not have actually been age 100 when he died, but officials in his community and family recognized his advanced age and may have had ?word-of-mouth? information as to longevity. Prior to his death, Richard had handed down all (most) of his land to his sons.

Ermina Leonard believed that Richard Newton had only one wife, Anne Loker. At various times she was called Ana, Anna, or Hannah. Anne was the daughter of Henry and Elizabeth Loker of Bures St. Mary, County of Essex, England and was probably born between 1608 and 1612. Anne and her siblings arrived in Sudbury as early as 1638, in the company of their widowed mother. Richard Newton and Anne Loker married around 1640, and Anne (Loker) Newton died in Marlborough on December 5, 1697.

From 1641 until around 1655, Richard and Anne (Loker) Newton had nine children: Children of Richard and Anne Loker Newton

Reuben Newton was descended from Moses. Biography 2

From Historical reminiscences of the early times in Marlborough, Massachusetts ... By Ella A. Bigelow

It was in 1640 that Richard Newton came over from England to settle in Sudbury, Mass. He was made freeman in 1643 and was one of the early petitioners for Marlborough. His land was in the southerly part of the town which became Southborough. Records say that he died aged "about 100 years." His son Daniel was born in 1655, and when the latter was about 25 years old he married Susanna Morse and built the house above. They named their first son Daniel, and he was in the Trench war. The great grandson of Richard named William whom the neighbors called "Old King Newton" because he was so resolute and fearless, married Elizabeth Wright of Framingham, whose children William and Lucv continued living on the old farm after the old folks had gone to their long home, each preferring a single life to the separation of each other. Lucv, surviving her beloved brother, lived to be over ninety years of age, Birth

Note

From The Newton Family, Effingham County, Georgia, by Nina Newton Usher.

Richard Newton of Colsterworth, England - Baptised April 9, 1609. From the available records it appears that Richard was first married in England to a woman by the name of Alice. He is said to have fathered 2 children in England, Ann Newton and Richard Newton Jr. These two children remained in England (When Richard Sr. moved to Massachusetts in 1639) He in known in the United States history as "Richard of Sudbury" He later moved to Marlborough, Mass. where he owned land.

He married Hannah (Ann) Loker.(Note: He was the uncle of Sir Isaac Newton.)

Richard Newton died August 5, 1701, Hannah Loker Newton died Dec 5, 1697.

The following paragraph was taken from "The Compendum of American Genealogy" page 50. "Newton, Richard (b. 1601-1609 - d. 1701) He was a founder of Sudbury Mass., freeman. 1645. He married Ann Loker, sister of Henrie Loker, d. Bures St. Mary, Essex, Eng., 1630.". Note

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 Mass.

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 sense 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". Sources

=Biography Richard Newton==========(Newton-5990)

DOB: 18 January 1590 Bures St Mary, Suffolk, England DOD: 24 August 1701 Southborough, Worcester, Massachusetts USA

Father: Isaac Newton DOB: 1577 St Mary, Essex, England DOD: 1641 Westby, Lincolnshire, England Mother: Thanks Newton DOB: 1577 DOD: 18 January 1589 at 12 years old

She died in childbirth or soon after having had her son Richard. The question is if Richard Newton's dob is 1590 and the death of his Mother Thanks is given as 1589 then his dob is incorrect. I think January 18 1589 is the correct dob. And given her age of 12 it make perfect sense that she would not have survived.

I have listed 7 other siblings for Richard but no mention of WHO the mother was. There are two BEFORE Richard - Isabel Newton (1596- __) Elizabeth Newton (1600-1688) Then Richard (1589) Then follows - Isaac Newton (1606-1642) Robert Newton (1607-1677) Richard Newton (1609-1665) Mary Newton (1612 -___) Ann Newton (1616 - ___)

       If anyone can help clear this up please do so!** 

Richard Newton Married TWICE 1. Alice Jones on 27 April 1615 at St Giles, Cripplegate, London, England. Age given for Richard is 14. Its probably there was issue as 21 years pass before his next marriage. to 2. Hannah Loker (1 Aug 1605 -5 Dec 1697) married 9 August 1636. Groom is 35. They have a daughter Anna (BEF 11 Oct 1637 -13 April 1654) Born at Bures, St Mary, Suffolk, England dies in Sudbury, Middlesex, Massachusetts USA at 17 yrs old.
