Newman, Samuel a minister of colonial days in this country, was born at Banbury, England, in 1602, and was educated at Oxford University, where he graduated in 1620, and immediately took holy orders in the state establishment. In 1636 he emigrated to America, and, after staying a short time at Dorchester, now Boston, Mass., was chosen minister of the Church at Weymouth. In 1644 he removed to Rehoboth, and there preached until his death, which occurred July 5,1663. Newman compiled a concordance of the Scriptures which passed through several editions, under the title of the Canbridge Concordance (5th ed. Lond. 1720, fol.).
