De Newburgh

Sarah Jane has thousands of relatives in America and believes President Bush is doing an excellent job. God Bless America.  Sarah Jane is delighted with the information links many eminent people have sent her to answer the questions she has made about her ancestry. She especially wishes to thank the Latter Day Saints for access to their wonderful world records going back to 1066 and further.

The translation is: royalty, dignity, courage and constancy, The translation is: high honourable bearing, constancy, sincerity, and peace.

There is another Newbury Coat of arms with strawberries and a truncheon! This denotes British aristocracy, authority, and also food for the gods.

Sarah Jane is very proud of Warwick Castle (click here for full history) and hopes everyone will go and see its wonders, especially St Mary's Church with the influence of one of the many De Newburgh Earls and subsequent Earls, Dukes and Lords and royalty along the line.  The name Newbury is genealogically linked to Warwick Castle, Lucy, and Lord de Brooke.  Variant spellings of the Newbury name all come from de Newburgh and there are many genealogically linked queens, kings, princesses, princes, counts countesses and dukes etc in the family tree.  The Castle in Normandy, France is also still doing well.  Sarah Jane loves all Castles.  Other interesting information can be found from the links below - it's clear many of us are related if you go back far enough so it's just as well it's only close relatives you can't marry!
