a shot in the dark here, but are there any NEWTON family using this forum, the family related to ALICE NEWTON 1878 wife of WILLIAM NEWTON 1878,and daughter VERA 1914,vera married a pagden and my pagden family would love to rekindle a lost part of there family.
Another shot in the dark; I have a Newton family from North East Derbyshire and Worksop area. They had slight Sheffield connections; Frederick Newton was born in 1860 in Killamarsh, he was the son of Samuel and Mary. Both Samuel and Fred were sextons at Wales parish church and I think that you will find in 1881 that another Samuel Newton was sexton at the cathedral. But that is the best i can offer you really.
after checking my tree, i dont think there is any connection, please feel free to check the following family members and let me know what you think
my newtons start at 1647 in leicestershire moving to sheffield around 1860
WILLIAM NEWTON 1878 married ALICE FEARNEHOUGH 1878
