Richard Newport and his wife Mary Wilbraham had several children of whom two sons and two daughters survived to adulthood. The eldest son, Henry, succeeded as 3rd Earl in 1723. He died without legitimate issue in 1734 but at the time of his death he had not inherited Weston from his mother - she outlived him by three years. Henry's younger brother, Thomas, became the 4th Earl. He had suffered brain damage through a fall from a horse. He died without issue in 1762 and the earldom became extinct. Richard and Mary's eldest daughter, Lady Anne Newport (1690-1752) inherited Weston and married Sir Orlando Bridgeman the 4th Baronet (1695-1764).
Richard married Mary WILBRAHAM, daughter of Sir Thomas WILBRAHAM 3rd Bart and Elizabeth MYTTON, on 20 Apr 1681. (Mary WILBRAHAM was born in 1661 in Woodhey, Cheshire, England and died on 3 Nov 1737.)
Richard next married.
