Note: Information on Richard of Queen's Camel sent to me via Ian Caldwell 23 Jan 2003. He may have obtained it from "The Visitation of the County of Somerset in the Year 1623" edited by Frederick Thomas Colby DD and published in 1876 - see an extract of which can be found here.

See also the Visitation of the County of Somersetshire (1623) in which Richard's name appears on page 79 as copied here, from which the names of his six elder children have been copied above.

There was a Robert Newman of Queen Camel who had a daughter Cecelia who married a George Duke, great grandson of John Duke who was Sheriff of Wiltshire in 1640 - see A Genealogical and Heraldic History of the Commoners of Great Britain by John Burke. Cecelia was presumably descended from Richard Newman of Queen Camel by several generations. [Thanks to Cheryl Cotton for the link.]
