How extraordinary to discover information about your branch of my family tree. Edward Joseph Newbegin and his wife Marina were my great, great grandparents. But they had FOUR sons not just Edward Dennes. They also had Lewis, Percy and Donald. Donald Newbegin married his second cousin, May Wadham. They had three children: Donald, Mary and Phillip. Mary married her second cousin Alan Crosland and had Elizabeth, Richard and Sarah. Elizabeth married Dennis Yates and had me and my sister Mary-Jane. We immigrated to Sydney, Australia in 1968. There are many other branches of our family who have also come to Australia quite independently. I can trace Marina Newbegin (nee Warne)'s family history back to the late 1600s.
I have much information I can share with you and I would be very happy to discover anything you can tell me about the Newbegin family.
Kindest regards

Hello. I'm a Newbegin by birth here in Melbourne Australia. I have a cousin on my aunt's side who has spent many years tracing the family tree. Earliest is Robert Newbegin 1685, Horton by Blyth, Northumberland, married Mary Watson

Has anyone found out where our family name started?

My grandfather Arthur Ernest Newbegin was a merchant seaman in the early 1900's, born here is Australia but worked on 'iron ships' sailing out of England. Dad (Arthur Richard Newbegin) said pa looked into the family history, while over in England, and found our ancestors were pirates given a reprieve from the then monarch for duty to the country, thus starting a 'new beginning'? I of course being a dreamer loved the story (despite now knowing what being a pirate really entailed); my sister says it's a fairytale, being the realist. Well I have told the story to my kids, it makes watching Pirates of the Caribbean all that more interesting

We are all scattered in different parts of the world as many families are but the name still remains very uncommon, so there must be a common connection? Where did it begin?

I have the Census data that shows the other three sons of James and Marina. Curiously, Edward Dennes is not listed as a member of the household. At 14, could he have already been living apart as an apprentice? Link:

Hi, I am also researching the Newbegin family. I live in Australia and my mother's maiden name is Newbegin.
I think Edward Dennes was away at school at Ackworth (Quaker school in Nth Yorkshire) when he was 14 and also his younger brother Lewis Swann Newbegin. The other 3 boys were Ernest Warne Newbegin, Donald Tracy Newbegin and Wheaton Percy Newbegin. All 5 were born in Sunderland, but their father Edward James and their Mother Marina were both born in Norwich. Edwards family tree goes back to at leat 1699 in Norwich, and Marina's goes back to the 1600's in Norfolk. I have never found the connection between the Norwich Newbegins and those in those in the North.
