Deaths Mar 1852
NEWBERRY Thomas Newton - St Geo South 1d 126

Middle name is actually Newington.

I was wondering if any info can be found for this death/burial. Thanks.


I have the burial records for John (1832) and spouse Sarah Newington GILES (1843).

I also have the burial record for daughter Sarah Bachelor (1847) but no record of the death/burial of spouse William SWALLING. Sarah is with two of her children in 1841 but no sign of William. John is probably their last child:

JOHN GUSTAVUS NEWBURY SWALLING - International Genealogical Index
Gender: Male Birth: 14 MAY 1822

so it looks as though William died between 1821 and 1841 if someone could look for a burial please.


The next daughter Mary Giles married Joshua WEST on 10 Sep 1833 and no trace of either has been found so far after that.

Thomas Newington NEWBERY married 3 times.

Second spouse Elizabeth (nee MOORE) died between 7 April 1831 (the birth of a daughter) and 11 Nov 1845 (date of 3rd marriage) or earlier if there is a waiting period ? 3 months ?? before someone can remarry.

I'd like a look up for a burial for Elizabeth please.

Hi Dave,

A possibility for William in 1841.

Greenwich Hospital

William Swalling age 68 pensioner born 'E' (England)

There is a death for a William Swalling district Greenwich year 1847 Greenwich.

There is also a marriage in 1838 for a William Swalling district Greenwich, so looks like there could be more than 1.
Hello Julie,

Thanks for looking. The Greenwich hospital one would fit. Sarah was born 16 Apr 1783 so William could be about 10 years older. Their marriage also has Greenwich:
