bullet  General Notes:

Was the illegitimate son of Sir Henry Newport (Lord Newport), the Earl of Bradford, Viscount Newport & Baron Newport. Sir Henry fell out with his family and left all his estates to his illegitimate son, John (born John Harrison). The will was contested but eventually took effect as intended. A comment that there was an "act" to allow John to change his name to Newport and the family oral history has it that he was the last Baron Newport and that each Samuel could have picked up this title but did not, so that it became extinct after Samuel (III).
Acts of the Parliaments of Great Britain
1735 (9 Geo. 2).c. 1
John Harrison (an infant): change of name to Newport, pursuant to the direction of Henry, late Earl of Bradford (deceased).
