In part:

"George Newby was baptised at East Halton, Lincolnshire on 1 January 1835 [East Halton Parish register]. It was actually recorded as “Geo. Newby”. He was married to Mary Ann Green on 13 July 1867 [as George Newby]. I don’t know when he included ‘Brown’ in his name. His death was registered as George Brown Newby. [It is possibly a clue as to John Newby’s lineage – I suspect John’s great grandmother was Elizabeth Brown (married to a John Newby), however I have no proof]."

"Sarah Jane married John Green at Chatham on 12 December 1867 [Source: NSW BDM Reg. No. 2247/1867]. The transcription states incorrectly that Sarah Jane was born in England. Sarah Jane died as stated on your site – 28 February 1886. Her brother John Newby was the informant, and he states that Sarah Jane was born in Port Macquarie."

"Hannah Newby was baptised at Riby, Lincolnshire on 15 December 1833. [Riby Parish registers]. The England censuses record her birthplace as Riby, Lincolnshire. She did not accompany her parents and brothers to Australia. The England censuses show she lived with her grandparents Thomas and Hannah Windley at Riby until the death of her grandmother Hannah in 1860. Thomas had died in 1850. She never married, and died on 4 January 1899 at 8 Crown Crescent, Scarborough, Yorkshire. [Death certificate]."
