* 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.

Note 1:  Di Clements quotes from Somerset Wills Fifth Series: "1574 Will of Thomas als Evered of Fivehead Dorset. Relict Dorothy, brother Robert.
Lands at Stony stoke. Daughters Agnes, Helen, Susan. Dorothy the eldest. Son Thomas, brother Henry."

Note 2: Di also quotes another reference to Thomas which I have included on his brother Richard's page (see note 2 on Richard Newman of Charlton Musgrove's page.)
