Elizabeth Berryman

Samuel NEWTON1 was born in 1819 (approx.) in Zennor, Cornwall.2,3 He was christened on 14 October 1819 in Zennor.1 Samuel's parents were Isaac NEWTON and Ann Drew NEWTON**. As well as Samuel, they had Frances NEWTON, Henry NEWTON, John NEWTON, Ann NEWTON and Matthew NEWTON.4 Samuel was a miner in Garris, Cornwall.1 He married Elizabeth BERRYMAN on 14 September 1852 in Gulval, Cornwall.1

between 1852 and 1855 they lived in Garris.5

he migrated from Plymouth, Devonshire to Adelaide, South Australia arriving on 20 February 1855. He travelled to Australia with his wife and two children Samuel and Elizabeth on board the ship "Rodney" which left Plymouth, Devonshire on 20 November 1854. No doubt a cause of extreme upset was the death of their daughter, Elizabeth Ann during the journey.1

in February 1855 he and Elizabeth BERRYMAN lived in Adelaide. Initially, after their arrival, they lived there but soon moved to settle in the gold mining area of Spring Hill near Creswick, Vic. In about 1875 they moved to Tataila, Vic and selected 210 acres of land adjoining James Berriman.1

he died (aged 76) in 1895 in Moama, NSW.1,6 He was buried in 1895 in the general cemetery in Moama.1

 

"Samuel's parents, Isaac and Ann Newton, also came to Australia and lived at Creswick, Vic. Ann, who was then widowed, went with Elizabeth and Samuel when they moved to Tataila, Vic. Ann died 16 June 1885, Samuel in 1895 but Elizabeth lived on until 1912. They are all buried in the Moama cemetery." (Quote from Berryman book, Page 29).1,6

 

Samuel's maternal grandparents were William NEWTON (b.1761 at St. Just, Cornwall) and Frances DREW. William and Frances were married in 1786 at Madron, Cornwall.6
