Newdick Name and Arms
Newdick is said to be a local name
meaning "at the new dike"; i.e., a family residing by or near a new trench,
mound or dike. If there were, for example, several men named Henry in a
general area, local people may have differentiated between them by referring
to "Henry who lives over by the new dike" as "Henry Newdick" and the name
was then assumed by Henry's family and descendants. (Charles Wareing Bardsley, A Dictionary of English and
Welsh Surnames, Baltimore, 1967)
Family tradition tells us that the Newdick name originated from the Dutch "Neu Dyk" and people who were brought over
from Holland to drain the fens of East Anglia. (Thanks to Mark Newdick of Connecticut)
The Arms of Newdick, granted on December
1, 1580 to a Newdick of County Worcester, is described as "Paly of four
argent and sable on a bend gules 5 bezants" which means "a silver shield
with four vertical black stripes with 5 gold circles on a red diagonal."
Please note that our Newdick family has no tradition of a coat of arms
and that Worcester is over 100 miles west of the Norfolk / Suffolk area
that our Newdick family came from; so this may not be the same family.

"Edward Newdick moved around North
Suffolk and South Norfolk a great deal for a farmer with 14 children. He
appears to have been born in Lakenheath, lived as a child in Eriswell,
married in Hockwold cum Wilton, farmed in Wilton and later in Brandon,
moved to Wrenshall (Wrens Hall), Stanton, where Sally (Sarah
Ann Newdick) grew up. Thereafter he and the family
moved to Hepworth, back to Stanton, back to Brandon, then to Feltwell in
Norfolk and finally to Swaffham where he died.
"His occupations read like his
moves. In 1841 he was a miller, in 1851 a farmer, in 1861 an engineer (steam
threshing machine), in 1871 a machinist, in 1881 a farm bailiff and in
retirement in 1891 at the age of 74 finally a 'gentleman'!"

George Robert "Bob" Newdick
Born on October 3, 1853 at Hepworth, in the District
of Thingoe (now Bury St. Edmunds), Suffolk; baptised on October 19, 1853
at Stanton, Suffolk.
Died on April 24, 1913 at Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Click
to view his death
Bob Newdick was a clothier or tailor; but at the time
of his death he was said to have been a "sexton" or church warden. His
death registration indicates that he had been ill with Bright's Disease
(inflammation of the kidneys) for a year; so perhaps he had taken a less
demanding position due to failing health.
Bob married first in 1879 at Swaffham, Norfolk to Jane
Tooley. Jane was born in 1854 in Swaffham, Norfolk; daughter of James Tooley
(born on March 25, 1800 at Flemington, Norfolk; died in 1877) and his wife
Ann Atkins (born in 1814 in Norfolk; died in 1856) Ann Atkins' mother was
Jane Tate (born circa 1791 at North Walsham, Norfolk.)
Bob Newdick, his wife Jane and their children were residing
at 110 London Street, Swaffham in 1881 and on Market Place, Swaffham in
1887 at the time of the birth of their daughter Ida Mary Newdick. The Newdick
family emigrated to Canada considering Australia and New Zealand. The Newdick
Family, including parents Bob and Jane, and children Sidney, Mabel, Tooley,
Muriel, Ida and Jack departed from Liverpool aboard the Parisian
on October 23, 1890, bound for Montreal. Please click on Parisian for more about this ship.
Jane died on February 24, 1898, at age 44 years after
suffering from pulmonary tuberculosis for 4 years. The Newdick family was
residing at 147 Tecumseth Street in Toronto at the time.
By 1901, Bob had re-married and by 1911 the Newdicks were
residing at 14 Lansdowne Avenue.
Bob Newdick and his wife Jane Tooley had the following
Robert George Newdick, born in 1879 and died the same
Sidney George Newdick, born on October
13, 1880. Sidney was a veteran of the Boer War. At the time of his enlistment
to serve in the First World War on September 22, 1914, he indicated that
he had previous service of four years with the 10th Royal Grenadiers. He
was a letter carrier prior to his enlistment in 1914, and later became
Postmaster of Toronto. His next of kin shown on his enlistment papers was
Annie Beatrice Newdick, living at 30 Virtue Street, Toronto, Canada. This
was his wife Annie Beatrice Sophia Finlayson, born May 9, 1885 at York,
Ontario. Annie was a daughter of daughter of William James Finlayson and
Mary Harriatt (Smith) Finlayson. Annie's sister, Harriat Ann Maria Finlayson,
married Sidney's cousin Clarence H. Newdick. The
descendants of Sidney and Annie Newdick have been of immense help in the
preparation of this genealogy.
Mabel Agnes Newdick (also Mable), born on April
25, 1883. Mabel married on June 19, 1907 to Herb Eddington (born on February
26, 1882) who was a brilliant accountant. On the 1911 census, this
family was residing at 582 Palmerston, Toronto, Canada. In the 1930's,
they resided on St. Leonards Avenue, Toronto, Canada. Herb could simply
look at a column of figures and add them up instantly in his head. Herb
contracted cancer of the bones and the progression of this disease made
his final fifteen years of life increasingly unproductive and miserable.
Things must have been very difficult, and Mabel ended up a nervous wreck.
After Herb's death in the late 1930's, she moved in with the H.C. Sewell
family where her sister Ida helped her with everything. Mabel couldn’t
talk, and perhaps suffered from Parkinson’s Disease or something similar.
Mabel and Herb had one son:
Darcy Eddington who married Dory. They had two sons:
Richard (Rick) Eddington who is said to have owned a "Burger
King" franchise in Chatham, Ontario, Canada.
Robert (Bob) Eddington
Tooley William Newdick, born

and death registrations, click HERE.
At the time of his enlistment to serve in the First World War on September
22, 1914, he indicated that he had previous service of six years with the
Queen's Own Rifles. Tooley had a tattoo of the Union Jack on his left forearm
and was a bank clerk prior to his enlistment in 1914. His next of kin was
Janet Newdick, whose postal address was c/o John Wallace, Cataract P.O.,
Ontario, Canada. It is unclear who John Wallace was. Tooley's wife was
Janet Eva Marion "Jean" Carter, born October 14, 1895 at Wellington, Ontario;
daughter of William Carter and Margaret Steele. After the war, Tooley and
his family lived in the west end of Toronto, Canada on Jamison Avenue.
They had two sons:
William Carter "Bill" Newdick who was born on July 7, 1930
and died without issue on February 15, 2002.
Douglas "Sam" Newdick was born January 5, 1932 and died on
September 28, 1996. Sam served in the American Army. On his return from
the Korean War he persued a career as a firefighter where he picked up
the nickname "Sam" because he had served the USA or "Uncle Sam." Many thanks
to Sam's descendants who have been of great help in preparing this genealogy.

Minnie's aged parents Benjamin Richardson (born February 1826, age 85)
and Elizabeth Richardson (born May 1831, age 80) along with children Tooley
(age 26), Muriel (age 24), Jack (age 22) and Marjorie (age 10) all living

one child, the Newdick residence would likely have been considered crowded
by to-day's standards.
