Anne Harbord of Stannington, Norfolk, was the daughter of Sir Charles Harbord, Surveyor General to King Charles I and King Charles II and ancestor of the Baronets of Gunton (see anecdote below). It was Anne who once owned the Newman-Rogers Bible. She and Richard made the first entry into its fly-leaf dated 1685 and signed their names therein.

Di Clements quotes from Somerset Wills Fifth Series relating to Anne Harbord's will: "1690 Ann Newman. wo Richard esq. Richard N. heir of Richard deceased, husband of testatrix and Anne Warre consenting. Grand -daughter Anne Warre £500 at 18. If she dies to Wm and Elizabeth her siblings.Thomas Warre her brother. [No mention of Dorothy Warre who is mentioned in Richard Newman's 1681 will. Perhaps she died before 1690, or perhaps she wasn't a daughter of Elizabeth.] Grand-daughter Barbara N £200; if she dies then to her sister Ann [Barbara and Ann, both daughters of Richard Newman of Evercreech] then to my grand-daughters Frances and Catherine Scott [daughters of Elizabeth and her second husband].  Son Francis Hollis Newman £200 at 21 If he dies to my grandsons John, William and Richard Oxenham.
