Other (probably unrelated) Newell Lineages
This Newell lineage hailed from Dublin Ireland in 1831, emigrating to Van Diemen's Land (Tasmania) in 1831 and to New South Wales in the late 1830s. There they settled about Newtown in Sydney's developing southwest.
William Newell, born Dublin, Eire, c1797, appears to have resided at 12 Johnston's Court East, Dublin (between Grafton and Clarendon Streets near the centre of the city) in 1832-33.
He had four known children by his wife Anna :
William Newell left Dublin for Australia with his wife Anna and their children aboard the Strathfieldsay, arriving in HobartTown, Van Diemen's Land (Tasmania), on 26 June 1833.
William Newell and son William later went from HobartTown to Sydney aboard the Moffatt, arriving in Port Jackson (Sydney) on 25 April 1838. They were later joined in NSW by Elizabeth and her husband Thomas Martin (thought to be in NSW by 1838) and by Thomas and Robert. The fate of Anna Newell remains unknown.
William (senior), a widowed (sic) locksmith, remarried at S Philip's Church, Sydney on 17 December 1839. His second wife was Irish-born widow Harriet McCoy (née Moore); Harriet bore William three children:
One of the girls predeceased Harriet.
William (snr.), whitesmith, died on 27 October 1853, and was buried in the graveyard of S Peter's CoE, St Peters NSW. Harriet Newell, of Church Street Camperdown, died on 4 March 1885, aged 95 years.
Elizabeth Newell, born c1816 in (?Dublin) Ireland, eldest child and only daughter of WILLIAM NEWELL and his first wife ANNA, and Thomas Martin were married on the 26 September 1836 in the Parish of Trinity, County Buckingham, Hobart Town TAS. Thomas had been tried and convicted in Surrey on 9 July 1832: he was described then as a clerk, aged 19, native place London, a short 5' 1" height, fair complexion, very light brown hair and blue eyes; sentenced to 7 years penal servitude, he was transported to Sydney in the York (2).
The couple's first child was:
Elizabeth and Thomas almost certainly emigrated to New South Wales as steerage passengers aboard the Hindu on 22 July 1839 with their child. In NSW, we have the baptism of Thomas in Sydney (1838), and of
Thomas, later to become a business partner of William (jnr.), was the first licensee of the Ship Inn Hotel at Sydney's Circular Quay. He was a partner in Martin and Hill, wine merchants. Thomas also worked for NSW Public Works as a clerk, retiring in 1863.
Thomas Martin, wine merchant, aged 60, died at Gladesville Hospital on 17 March 1872, and was buried next day at Balmain Cemetery: the informant for the certificate stated that Thomas was married and had four children but had no further details.
Eliza Martin, aged 83, died at Chatham House, Pitt Street, North Sydney, on 5 July 1901, and was buried two days later at Gore Hill Cemetery. The informant for the certificate was her daughter E K Martin of Chatham House, who stated that Eliza was the daughter of WILLIAM NEWELL and ELIZABETH — [sic.], had been born in Dublin, had lived in Tasmania for about 3 years and NSW for 64 years, had married when about 18 years old to Thomas Martin in Hobart, and had four children: Thomas W Martin (63), Charles A Martin (61), Eliza K Martin (58) and Agnes J (Newton) (56), all still living (no issue deceased)..
Unrelated, a death is recorded for Charles F R Martin in 1898, son of Charles A and Kathleen F Martin; we may presume that Charles A Martin survived into adulthood.
The birth of an Ethel Mary Martin to Thomas William and Ellen Eliza Martin was registered in Sydney in 1879; these parents, Thomas W Martin and Ellen E Joyner, had their marriage registered at Paddington in 1878. A second child, Herbert R Martin, was registered in Sydney in 1881, followed by Thomas C Martin at Paddington in 1884 and Edith at Woollahra in 1888.
Thomas William Martin, born 10 April 1838 in Hobart but baptised 16 May 1838 at St Mary's Cathederal, Sydney, was the first of four known children of THOMAS MARTIN and his wife ELIZABETH NEWELL.
The death of Thomas W Martin, son of THOMAS W and ELIZABETH, was registered at Marrickville nsw in 1929.
Charles Alfred Martin, born 10 May/June 1840), baptised 15 July 1841 at St Mary's Cathederal, Sydney, was the second of four known children of THOMAS MARTIN and his wife ELIZABETH NEWELL. Charles, as an 'English-born' bachelor broker aged 38, married Martha Margaret Dobbin, 'English-born' spinster aged 24, on 14 March 1872 in Elizabeth Street, Sydney.

Dwyer, O.S.B., EDWARD, eldest son of the late JOSEPH NEWTON, Furnival's Inn, London, to AGNES JANE, youngest daughter of THOMAS MARTIN, of Islington, London. No cards.”
Agnes and Edward seem to have been the parents of:
Edward was mentioned as deceased in March 1916: it is likely that he was the Edward, son of JOSEPH and EMMA, whose death was registered at St Leonards in 1906 aged 67 [viz, born c1839], and mentioned in The Sydney Morning Herald on Monday 21 May 1906 (p6 and p12): "

William Newell, born c1818 in (?Dublin) Ireland, was the second child and eldest son of WILLIAM NEWELL (1797 1853) and his first wife ANNA. William arrived in Port Jackson in 1838, and on 9 July 1838, William married Sarah Hazell née Sarah Ann Guy at S Philip's CoE in Sydney NSW (Sarah's name sometimes appears to be written as Har(r)ell). Sarah was the daughter born in Ireland circa 1812/14 of ROBERT GUY and MARGARET SIMPSON, and had arrived in Sydney as an assisted (bounty) immigrant on 27 February 1835, aboard the female immigrant ship the Duchess of Northumberland which had carried mainly single females from London, Dublin and Cork. Sarah had married constable John Hazell on 26 July 1836 at S James' CoE, King Street, Sydney, and while resident in Parramatta Street, Sarah bore John one child:
It is not known what became John Harrel. Sarah bore William Newell seven children,
Sarah Newell (formerly
Harell, née Guy), 69, died at home in Mechanic Street Newtown
on 25 January 1883.
[For further details of the Guy, Simpson and Hazell/Har(r)ell families, follow this link]
The widowed William, now aged about 67, remarried in the chapel of Trinity School at MacDonaldtown near Newtown NSW on 29 November 1885 (?1884), his second wife being the 23 year old spinster Margaret Allan (born c1862 at Pyrmont NSW to farmer THOMAS ALLAN and his wife EMILY E WHITEMAN). Margaret bore William four children:
William Newell (jnr.),
house and land agent, died on 21 July 1896 in his home at 29 Horden
Street, Newtown, and was buried on 23 July in the same plot as
his first wife, Sarah Ann, at S George's CoE, Hurstville.
The death of Margaret Ann Newell née Allan, daughter of THOMAS and ELIZABETH, was registered at North Sydney in 1946.
On 17 March 1863, at S Peter's CoE, Cooks River Road, in Sydney (now the Prince's Highway), Robert William Newell, of "full age", son of WILLIAM NEWELL and his first wife SARAH HAZELL or HARELL née GUY, married the "under age" Annie Talbott, daughter born in 1843 to HENRY TALBOTT and his wife MARTHA LYNCH née SERGEANT. Annie bore Robert eleven children:
The 1873 Sands Directory lists Robert william Newell, grocer, in Horden Street, Newtown. At the time of Agnes Annie Newell's marriage to Thomas George Kidd in 1891, Robert William Newell's address was reported as 'Collaroy, Peakhurst, Sydney'. The paddle-steamer Collaroy was wrecked on a Sydney beach in 1881, giving its name to that beach and the later suburb. It has been suggested that Robert William Newell, apparently a part owner of the Collaroy, salvaged materials from the wreck and used them in the construction of his Peakhurst home. The Collaroy had run between Sydney and Newcastle for many years before the accident; it was refloated two years later and rigged as a four masted barkentine (?or three-masted schooner?), meeting its end cast up on the Californian coast four years later!
Annie Newell née
Talbott died on 20 September 1909 in Arncliffe. Robert William
Newell died at Burwood on 13 November 1919 and was interred in
Camperdown Cemetery, in the same grave as his first wife, Annie.
For further details regarding Annie Talott'sfamily, refer to the Talbott lineage
Robert William Newell re-married after Annie his wife had passed away: he married 52-year old widow Janet Higgs née Russell in September 1912, as registered at at Burwood NSW. Robert's second wife was described as a red-haired Scottish woman who contested Robert's will for several years. The will left all of Robert's estate to his children Eva, Arthur and Ernest, and made no mention of either his other children or a surviving wife. Ernest, as informant to Robert's death, mentioned only his father's first marriage, and said that it took place at Church Hill, Sydney. It was common in those days for wealthy widowers to remarry, for several reasons - companionship, provision of a mother-figure for children, for orderly running of a household, and so on. These second wives were frequently housemaids to the widower, as in the case of Robert's father.
Janet secured by High Court action a weekly payment from her husband’s estate, though the court costs had depleted the money bequeathed and it was soon gone. The Sydney Morning Herald of Saturday 5 June 1920 (p9) reported:
(Before Mr. Justice Harvey.)
LATE R. W. NEWELL'S ESTATE.
WIDOW'S APPLICATION FOR MAINTENANCE.
An application under the Testators Family Maintenance Act was made on behalf of Janet Newell, widow of Robert William Newell, late of Burwood, and formerly of Homebush, that provision be made for her support and maintenance out of her deceased husband's estate. The applicant stated in her affidavit that her late husband died at St. Bernard's private hospital, Burwood, on November 13 last, leaving an estate of the net value of £4733. By his will he appointed his sons, Arthur Robert and Ernest Hercules Markham Newell, and his daughter, Eva Sarah Newell, executors, executrix, and trustees of his estate, the whole of which he devised and bequeathed to his daughter and the children of his sons, Arthur Robert and E. H. M. Newell. She was married to the testator in September, 1912, she at the time being a widow, aged 52 years, and he a widower, aged 73 years, with a family, the members of which had attained the age of 21. No provision was made for her in the will. From the date of the marriage the deceased and she lived happily together, and she had no idea that he had made a will which did not leave her provided for. At present she was under medical care, and was absolutely unable to earn her own living. Mr Monahan (instructed by Messrs. H. T. Morgan and Morgan) appeared for the applicant, and Mr. H. H. Mason (instructed by Messrs. Thomas Rose and Dawes) represented the executors, who opposed the application. His Honor made an order for payment to the applicant of 35/ a week out of the estate.

and again on Monday 15 December 1891 (p4):
"HILL-NEWELL. -November 4, at St. Philip's Church, Sydney, by the Rev. J. D. Langley, Joseph Hill to Ada Beatrice Newell."

TWELVE MONTHS' IMPRISONMENT.
Sydney, March 15.
At the Central Criminal Court to-day Arthur Douglas Newell (26), a bailiff's assistant, was found guilty of the man- slaughter of Mary Thompson (73) and her granddaughter, Rosetta Thompson, both of whom died after they had been struck by a motor car on the Parramatta-road, some months ago. The police found that the driver had driven on without rendering assistance. The front of the car was damaged, and, it is also stated that pieces of glass picked up the roadway were of the same gauge as the broken headlight of his car. Newell, who crying when found guilty, told the judge is would never drive a car again, but the judge said he had his duty to the public to perform, and sent him to gaol for 12 months. When the sentence was passed several women at the back of the court fainted.
