      I found these English records on findmypast. I have no idea if all pertain to John Newton of Westmoreland, but definitely the Elizabeth Lacoke marriage. No record found for Joan Barr, but the Joane Waring one is about the right time yet we have no way of knowing if it might be HIS 1st marriage to a Joan.

      This says that Thomas Newton was transported by Southy Littleberry and I believe it should be none other that Southy Littleton I suspect related to Henry Southy that transported Roger Marshall. I suspect that Thomas Newton could be related to John Newton and could be the same Thomas Newton that was in a Maryland Patent that Daniel Clarke signed over his interest to Thomas Newton and Thomas Marshall witnessed Feb. 11, 1667.

      In 1709, son Benjamin made a depostion which gave the name of John's father in Hull:
      " to his certain knowledge JOHN NEWTON THE ELDER did live in a place called Anlaby near Hull and he brought JOHN NEWTON THE YOUNGER with him to Virginia who he always acknowledged to be his lawful and eldest son. He knew THOMAS NEWTON who lived in Hull who always owned and acknowledged JOHN NEWTON THE ELDER, this deponent's father, to be his lawful and eldest. This deponent saith that he came from THOMAS NEWTON'S, his grandfather, when he came to Virginia."
