Charles, I don't know where your particular family lived in earlier times here in the United States. But, the Newbolds were very prominent in the Philadelphia area in colonial times. And I know of an enormous work in the Philadelphia library by a man named Professor William Romaine Newbold. He was a professor at the University of Pennsylvania who went back to England once or twice and stayed for months at a time doing research on the Newbold family. He intended to write a book, but he died before publication. All of his papers - and the text of the unfinished book - were placed in the Philadelphia library after his death. Also, the entire collection has been filmed by the LDS Library of Salt Lake City. The original collection can be seen in the library in Philadelphia, and the films can be ordered at any Mormon Church Family History Center. The collection is huge; if I remember right, it took something like five rolls of microfilm to film the collection - maybe more; my memory on that is not too clear. Anyway, it is an enormous work.
I am certain you would find that collection very informative, but it may or may not connect directly to your family.
