Rebecca Newman was the youngest known child of Philip Newman and his second wife Elizabeth Whitehead of Haddenham and later of Somersham, Cambridgeshire.
Rebecca gave birth to a son, seemingly known to be fathered by Elias Dann of Wilburton (church records support this claim). Two years later she married John Seymore of Haddenham
John and Rebecca went on to have at least two more children, whilst Elias Dann went on to marry and have his own legitimate family.
I have not yet managed to trace Rebecca and John Seymore after the baptism of their second child in 1826. At this baptism, the couple are noted as being of Aldreth, which is a tiny hamlet (just 260 residents in 2001) near Haddenham, which would explain why the baptism took place at Haddenham parish church.
28th May 1804, Haddenham, Cambridgeshire.
- John Seymore on 31st December 1822, Haddenham church, Cambridgeshire.
- Charles Newman (1820-1906) married Emma Levitt (1825-?)
- Sarah Seymore (1823-?)
- Rebecca Seymore (1826-?)
