According to Geoff Newman, Ashburnham Cecil Newman was born in Scotland (presumably at his mother's home in Lanackshire) but moved to Thornbury Park (and changed his name to Newman) at the age of six when his father inherited the estate.

Like his brother Henry, Ashburnham Cecil Toll would have had his his name changed to Newman in 1802 when his father inherited Frances Newman's estates, following the death of his uncle Ashburnham Philip Newman.

Ashburnham was regarded as the black sheep of the family because he lived out of wedlock with the mother of his several children. In September 1829 his father died, and in Feb 1830 he was was granted a commission Gloucester militia. In April 1830 he married the lady he had been living with and shortly afterward emigrated to Canada where most of his descendents are now living.
