      "Thomas Newman, Jr., only son of the immigrant, born in Virginia, is frequently mentioned in the records of Richmond county, and by will and descent acquired nearly all the Newman property in the Northern Neck. He conveyed Moratico to John Tarpley in 1700, and the deed shows that he lived in Sittenbourne parish , probably on the place given him by his father, and recites that the lands conveyed were given him by Capt. Alexander Newman, in his last will and testament. As, at the time of the latter's death, there were three Thomas Newman's in Richmond county, to-wit: the immigrant, his son and grandson, Tarply instituted an inquiry, in 1711, to ascertain who was the Thomas to whom Capt. Alexander Newman devised Moratico. This inquiry is of record at Warsaw and contains the testimony of Capt. Wm. Woodbridge, Wm. Fitzherbert, Dominick Benneham, Mrs. Winnifred Griffin, and George Glasscock. The first testified that he had often heard Capt. Newman say that "if he died without issue he would give the plantation where he then lived to Thomas Newman, because it should not go out of the name of Newman," and that he was "that Thomas Newman who was reputed to have married the daughter of Mr. Elias Wilson, deceased." Fitzherbert testified similarly, but changed the Captain's language so as to make him declare that he would give the land to Thomas "to bear up the name of Newman," and identified him as "the son of Thomas Newman, who lived across Rappahannock Creek." He died between 1704 and 1707, and left issue:"
