The following text can be found in The County Families of the United Kingdom kindly sent to me by Cheryl Cotton:
NEWMAN, Henry Wenman, Esq., of Thornbnry Park, Gloucestershire. Eldest son of the late Richard Newman Newman, Esq., M.D. (who assumed the name of Newman in lien of Toll), by Grizel, dau. of James Purdie, Esq., of Hamilton, N.B.; b.1788; s. 1829 ; m. 1846 Frances Margaret, eldest dau. of the late Rev. J. J. Goodenough, D.D., and grand-niece of Dr. S. Goodenough, late Bishop of Carlisle, and has, with other issue, Henry AshburnhamToll, b. 1847. Mr. Newman is a J.P. and D.L. for Co. Gloucester (High Sheriff 1835), and late Lieut.-Col, Commandant Royal S. Gloucester Militia. This family formerly owned the manor of Fifehead Magdalen, Dorset, which they obtained by a grant from the Crown after the dissolution of monasteries. Col. Newman has a royal descent from King Edward I. —Thornbury Park, Gloucestershire; Hillside, Cheltenham; Imperial Club, Cheltenham.
Geoff Newman's "Family History of Ashburnham Cecil Newman" notes the following:
Henry Wenman changed his name to Newman at the age of 14 (i.e. 1802 when his father inherited Frances Newman's estates). He served with the 23rd South Gloucestershire Militia in Ireland in 1814 and was promoted Captain in 1820. He was later promoted to Lt.Col. commanding the Royal South Gloucestershire Militia from 1854 to 1860. On the death of his father he became owner of Thornbury Park, and built the current manor house there in 1832. He is listed as a JP, Deputy Lieutenant and High Sheriff for Gloucester. In 1846 at the age of 58 he married Frances Margaret Goodenough and they had three children in the following four years.
Following his death, Thornbury was jointly held by his two eldest sons Henry and George. Why the property was sold by them in the 1930s is not known - probably lack of money during the Depression. The family dropped from Burke's register in 1937.
By some accounts one of the later generations of Newman/Tolls once again changed their name by deedpole, this time to Goodenough - the family name of Henry Wenman's wife..
