"Most family trees published on the Internet,including Ancestry, and the printed Pre 1860 Pioneer Register Book 1, give John's parents as Francis Newby and Ann Taylor. This is incorrect. The Melton Ross parish register for 1810 states "Baptized John the illegitimate son of Elizabeth Newby June 3". Other than this record I have not found any other original source which names John's parent/s - his death record states his parents as "unknown". Francis Newby and Ann Taylor were married in Fiskerton, Lincolnshire and their 3 children were born/baptized in Wragby, Lincolnshire - Martha, Francis & Elizabeth. They did not have a child named John."

Note: The memorial headstone for John is inscribed that he was 70 years old at the time of his death in 1880.

"There were a lot of John Newbys in Lincolnshire, however I do believe that the subject John Newby is the one baptised at Melton Ross, Lincolnshire on June 3, 1810. His death record states he was born in Melton Ross; he was 70 years old (i.e. born 1810). In addition, according to FamilySearch and FreeReg, and my search of the Melton Ross parish registers, there was only one Newby baptised in Melton Ross. I think the rather illegible Milton or Mitton in the shipping record was an error – it should have been Melton. Possibly an error due to the Lincolnshire accent?"

"The fact that they were in New Zealand is never mentioned. We know from her death record that my 2 x Great Grandmother Betsy Newby was born in New Zealand on 12 November 1844. I was sceptical until I found articles which confirmed that they lived in Auckland on New Zealand’s Papers Past website,. I have not been able to locate any authoritative record as to when they arrived. One source puts John Newby settling in Auckland in 1843, but that is all the information there is. The first newspaper article in the Daily Southern Cross, dated 27 May 1843, relates to the opening of a Ten Pin Alley established at the Commercial Hotel. It states: “N.B. – Front Entrance from High-street in the rear of the Commercial Hotel (near Mr. Newby’s Forge)….. “ (My underlining). Then in the Daily Southern Cross, 26 April 1845 “JOHN NEWBY, General Smith, High-street, - requests that all debts due to him may be paid before the 30th instant…..” and “JOHN WATSON – BLACKSMITH has taken those premises in High-street lately occupied by JOHN NEWBY…..”.

Mariners and Ships in Australian Waters records passengers Mrs Newby and 3 sons and 3 daughters on the 95 tons schooner Terror which sailed from Auckland on 13 April 1845, arriving in Sydney on 27 April. Mr Newby, also sailed on the Terror from Auckland on 16 June 1845, arriving in Sydney on 10 July. Obviously Mary and the children left, leaving John to settle his affairs in Auckland before sailing to join the family."

"Most family trees published on the Internet,including Ancestry, and the printed Pre 1860 Pioneer Register Book 1, give John's parents as Francis Newby and Ann Taylor. This is incorrect. The Melton Ross parish register for 1810 states "Baptized John the illegitimate son of Elizabeth Newby June 3". Other than this record I have not found any other original source which names John's parent/s - his death record states his parents as "unknown". Francis Newby and Ann Taylor were married in Fiskerton, Lincolnshire and their 3 children were born/baptized in Wragby, Lincolnshire - Martha, Francis & Elizabeth. They did not have a child named John."

"There were a lot of John Newbys in Lincolnshire, however I do believe that the subject John Newby is the one baptised at Melton Ross, Lincolnshire on June 3, 1810. His death record states he was born in Melton Ross; he was 70 years old (i.e. born 1810). In addition, according to FamilySearch and FreeReg, and my search of the Melton Ross parish registers, there was only one Newby baptised in Melton Ross. I think the rather illegible Milton or Mitton in the shipping record was an error – it should have been Melton. Possibly an error due to the Lincolnshire accent?"

"The fact that they were in New Zealand is never mentioned. We know from her death record that my 2 x Great Grandmother Betsy Newby was born in New Zealand on 12 November 1844. I was sceptical until I found articles which confirmed that they lived in Auckland on New Zealand’s Papers Past website,. I have not been able to locate any authoritative record as to when they arrived. One source puts John Newby settling in Auckland in 1843, but that is all the information there is. The first newspaper article in the Daily Southern Cross, dated 27 May 1843, relates to the opening of a Ten Pin Alley established at the Commercial Hotel. It states: “N.B. – Front Entrance from High-street in the rear of the Commercial Hotel (near Mr. Newby’s Forge)….. “ (My underlining). Then in the Daily Southern Cross, 26 April 1845 “JOHN NEWBY, General Smith, High-street, - requests that all debts due to him may be paid before the 30th instant…..” and “JOHN WATSON – BLACKSMITH has taken those premises in High-street lately occupied by JOHN NEWBY…..”.

Mariners and Ships in Australian Waters records passengers Mrs Newby and 3 sons and 3 daughters on the 95 tons schooner Terror which sailed from Auckland on 13 April 1845, arriving in Sydney on 27 April. Mr Newby, also sailed on the Terror from Auckland on 16 June 1845, arriving in Sydney on 10 July. Obviously Mary and the children left, leaving John to settle his affairs in Auckland before sailing to join the family."
