* I have estimated the birth dates for each generation between Robert Newman of St. Thomas's, Salisbury (c.1370-1402) and Thomas Newman of Fifehead (c.1560-1649) based on the assumption that each was at least 20 years old when they had their eldest child. Such a short generation time implies that there may be too many generations listed in the pedegree. Jaynie Ballard's tree suggests that this is the case since it omits Robert Newman of Stour Provost and St Augustin's Abbey which results in her generation gaps appearing less problematic.
It is interesting to note that in his 1938 letter to Rev. Grosvenor Bartelot, C.R. Everett refers to a John Newman of St. Thomas's Salisbury who died in 1402. Everett refers to the existence of a Will proved in 1402/03, in which "he mentions Nicholas Harding ... and the Forest family, also related no doubt." Quite probably therefore, my Robert Newman d.1402 is the same as Everett's John Newman. It may be hoped that a copy of the Will may be found to help resolve this conundrum.
Everett also doubts the existence of a link between John Newman and Robert Newman of Salisbury (d.1457); see notes on Robert Newman's page.
