I'm sorry, but I've not attempted to trace the Vinson/Vincent line past the second Newbold Vinson, one of the children of Newbold Vinson who died circa 1794. My interest was confined to the fact that Newbold Vinson was a child of Benjamin Vinson and Esther Hearn, Esther being one of the children of Thomas Hearn and Sarah Newbold. Hence, the reason why "Newbold" was used as a first name by Esther. There are a couple other cases of descendants of female Newbolds naming sons after their or their parents' surnames [another being Newbold Moor or Moore also in Sussex County in the late 1700s]. This practice makes for one of the few ways to sometimes trace female connections.

If you would like to know the complete Newbold ancestry of Esther Vinson/Hearne, please email me at
