Ann's mother's entry in the Newman-Rogers Bible records that Ann was both born on Sept 14th 1706.
Many years later, Ann's name appears in the extract from Chancery Proceedings 23rd November 1742.
According to a letter written by Camborne Paynter to H.E.M. Newman in November 1957, the Pedigree of Newman, Proceedings of the Somerset Archaeological Society, XXXVI, 157 shows that Ann died in 1706, however Anne (sic) Newman, the wife of Walter Burton, lived until 1776. The letter also states that Walter Burton died young, however he was still alive 1742 when he appeared as a complainant in Chancery Proceedings of that year.
The letter describes:
"... a conversation piece [presumably a miniature painting] showing Ann's three children Eleanor, Walter and Jane, standing by a table. Eleanor appears about 12 years old, the brother and sister being younger (see belowO. A view of Cadbury Castle is seen through a window in the background. Eleanor has just built a card castle and her brother is in the act of knocking it down with a little stick, her attention having been attracted in the opposite direction. Jane looks on. The children are dressed as for a party: Eleanor in pink brocade, Walter in a green velvet coat with white sating waistcoat, and Jane in white satin. The picture is one of the most interesting known works of the Somerset artist Richard Phelps of Porlock. It hangs now in 'The Georgian House', Bristol."
