      Thomas Newman, born in England about 1620, emigrated to Virginia in the ship "Plaine Joan" in 1635, aged 15 years; probably settled with his brother John in James City county, Virginia, and moved with him to the Northern Neck. His name, however, does not appear upon any record until 1677, when he made a deed to his son Thomas, conveying one-half of his real and personal property to the latter, who was about to be married. This deed, of record at Tappahannock, Virginia, is attested by Philip Pendleton. The immigrant Thomas probably married a daughter of Henry Burdett, Sr., whose will, proven in 1695, in Richmond county, is now lost with Will Book 1 ; but the remaining records prove that he was executor of, and a devisee under the will. He died intestate, about the beginning of the year 1700, and his per. sonal estate was appraised at 16,577 pounds of tobacco. He probably had daughters; the wives of Avery Naylor, John McMelion (McMillan?), and Frances, wife of John Wilson, may have been among these. He certainly had but one son, Thomas, born probably before 1656, and after the removal of his father to what is now Richmond county."
