Classification: Biography
Surnames: Newman
With the help of my distant cousin Sean, I have been able to update the Charles county mulattoe family with documented proof of origin. The original Newman to Charles county was an English female named Maria Newman. She was charged in 1752 Middlesex court, England for theft. Maria was sented to 7 years indenture in Maryland. She eventually turned in Charles county, Maryland an indentured servant of Mr. MacAtee. In 1755 Maria was brought to Charles county court for bastardy charges, { giving birth to a mulattoe son }. The son was listed as William age 4 months old as of June of 1755. William was placed into servatude until he reached the age of 31 years. William eventually marriage a woman named Martha. They had a son born and baptized in 1793 in Charles county Maryland. It is believed that William and Martha may have had another child but proof pending. John married Ann Proctor in 1814 and had the numerous children listed in the first message part of this board. The children passed on the trait of blue eyes and blonde hair. But not all of the children had blonde hair. In the late 1880's and upwards some of the Newman descendants moved away and passed as white. Many maintained contact with their kinspeople in Charles & Prince George's counties of Maryland.
