Newton, George a Puritan preacher, flourished near the middle of the 17th century at London. In 1655 he was minister of St. Mary's at Maunton, and later was the pastor of a nonconforming congregation, when, in 1662, this good man, "a noted gospeller" and remarkable for his missionary zeal, was displaced for a minister of cavalier sympathy. We know but little else of George Newton. He died near the close of the 17th century. See Stanford, Life of Joseph Colleine, p. 200; Stoughton, Eccles. list. of Eng. (Ch. of the Restoration), 1:274 ii, 494.
