    Notes 
    • !BIRTH-MARRIAGE: Vital Records of Groton, Connecticut; Film 1452 pt. 82 p. 27. John the son of John Newbery and Elizabeth Stark was born on 16 Aug 1710 in Groton, New London, Connecticut. John Newbery junior, marr Zeruiah Birch on 26 November 1739 in Groton, New London, Connecticut.

      !John Newberry settle in New York in the area known as the Philipse Patent. Dutchess County was formed where they lived in 1683, but it was so sparsely inhabited that on 18 Oct 1701 it was provisionally annexed to Ulster County for administration, and its freeholders were
      entited to vote with Ulster County, It remained annexed to Ulster County until 23 Oct 1713 when its population had increased sufficiently that it was deemed necesary to have its own officers. The records of the couty prior to 1718, if any were kept were either lost or destroyed.
      In 1719 the county was divided into 3 wards or precincts designeated Northern, Middle and Southern (sor South Precinct). The Newberry family lived in the area known as South Precinct. On 16 Dec 1737 the county was divided into seven precincts; designated Beekman, Charlotte, Crom Elbow, North, Poughkeepsie, Rhinebeck, and South East Town. From these seven, others were subsequently formed. About 1740
      Fredericksbury Precinct was formed. It was named after Fredericksburgh Philipse, a descendant of the original patentee.
      In a 1747 list of the Fredericksburgh Precinct who were either freeholders or occupying land as tenants is found the name "John Moberry". This is most likely John Newberry. This is the earliest record found of him in this area of New York. In the 1777 tax list of Philip Philipse Patent, John Newbury is listed in Fredericksburg Precinct with 6 in his household. After the Revolutionary War, New York passed on 22 Oct 1779, "An act for the forfeiture and sale of the estates of persons who have adhered to the enemies of this State, etc. By the provisions of this act, men were appointed as commissioners to sell confiscated properties of people who sided with Britain during the war. In the majority of cases, the lands were sold to parities who were already in possession of the properties as tenants. Sales in Lot No. 7 lists two properties for John Newbury, one with 125 acreas and one with 60 acres. His father in law Johnathan Burck (Burch) is also listed with 112 acreas. By the Act of 7 Mar 1788, "for dividing the counties of this State into towns" the Precincts were changed into towns and Fredericksburg Precinct became Frederickstown. Frederickstown was split in 1795, and Franklin was on of the towns formed from it. John Newberrys will was written on 23 Apr 1796. He was listed as of Franklin. His wife is no listed, so presumably she had died by this date. His lists his children, Zerviah, Mercy, Jonathan, John, Edith and Joshua. His will is withessed by Samuel Cornwall, Darius Stone, and John T. Bryan. Executors are his sons Joshua and John and Lewis Steffins.
      The name of Franklin was changed to Patterson in 1808. The will was probated on 19 Apr 1809 but is still listed as Franklin, not Patterson, Dutchess County, New York. It is probable that his died in 1809.
      Patterson later, on 12 June 1812, became part of Putnam County when it was created from Dutchess County.
