Henry Mompesson Newman was born in 1696 and christened in North Cadbury on May 1, 1696. He attended Wadham College, Oxford, in March 22, 1715/16 aged 18, and gained a B.A. in 1719 and an M.A. 1722, becoming a church minister and Rector of South Cadburie (sic). He married Jane Wickham and died shortly after in 1725, being buried in North Cadbury on May 28, 1725. There seems to have been a major family ruckus relating to the administration of Henry's will (see extract from Chancery Proceedings 23rd November 1742).
In Jan 2017, Cefyn Grafton wrote to say that she'd been troubled about Henry's wife, Jane, because of conflicts with her surname. Apparently, after Henry's death, she gone on to marry the Rev Anthony WICKHAM (1699-1767) at Horsington on 6 Apr 1729, the entry reading:“Jeane Newman”. And there is a marble memorial in the nave in Horsington Church which reads “First wife of Anthony. Daughter of Mr: George BRODRIPP, of the City of London”. She was buried on 23 Nov 1739.
Cefyn then found her first marriage on FreeReg as: Henry NEWMAN & Jane BRODRIP on 20 Nov 1721 at Horsington.
She goes on to add that Anthony & Jane WICKHAM appear to have had a daughter – also Jane – who is baptised at Shepton Mallet and buried at Horsington in 1737.
