Here is a list of medieval references for John Newburgh who died in 1483. John succeeded his father, also called John, in 1443, when he was already aged 41. There are a number of clear references to him before this date, calling him John Newburgh the younger or John Newburgh junior. Some other references before 1443 are ambiguous, and may refer to this John rather than his father; where there is such ambiguity, we have included the references in the list for John senior.

From references included here, we know that John's wife was called Alice; from other sources (e.g. Hutchins) we know that she was the daughter of William Carent. John and Alice had a number of sons; from references here, there were sons called William, John, Robert and Thomas. William died before his father (from other sources, he fought on the Lancastrian side at the Battle of Tewkesbury in 1471, and was executed after the battle). William left at least two sons, another John, who succeeded his grandfather in 1483,and Roger who succeeded his older brother in 1485. Robert is mentioned in just one reference, but not in John's will (quoted in Testamenta Vetusta, Vol 1, 1826), which bequeathes money to John and Thomas, as well as to their sisters Margaret Long and Anastacia Frampton, and two other sons of William.

This John Newburgh was the first Newburgh to own Sutton Poyntz.

The following table gives references relating directly to this John Newburgh, in date order. After that, there is a separate list of references that relate (or probably relate) to John's sons. Actual quotes are in italics.

[34] Court record 1447 Arbitration award over a disagreement about the manor of Sutton Poyntz. 1447
[To all men to whom] these present writings shall come, William Brownyng, esquire, John Battescombe, Robert Tourges, and Thomas Husee send greetings.
Whereas discord has arisen between [John] Neuburgh, esquire of the one part and James Ormonde, knight and Amicia his wife of the other part, over the title to and possession of the manor of Sutton Poyntz in Dorset. Now at last the said parties and their friends have intervened to peacefully and tranquilly submit the said discord to the decision of William and John Battescombe, arbitrators for James and Amicia, and Robert Tourges and Thomas Husee, arbitrators for John Neuburgh.
The said James and Amicia and John Neuburgh have each entered into bonds for the sum of £1000 each to observe the decision.
The arbitrators have produced evidence and muniments concerning the said premises and after deliberation, judge the matter thus:
The said James and Amicia and John Neuburgh shall before Easter 1453 go before a Justice of the Kings Bench and recognise the said manor to be the right of William Selke, chaplain and William Combe, who are now enfeoffed of the said manor which they hold by the gift of James, Amicia and John, and they have released and quit-claimed the same to the said John Neuburgh.
The said John Neuburgh shall on cognisance before the Justice grant the said manor to William Selke and William Combe and a fine shall be engrossed within one month after Easter, between James, Amicia and John to the care and charge of James, William Selke and William Combe paying an annual rent of £50 out of the profits of the said manor to the said John Neuburgh and his heirs, to be paid four times a year.
And there shall be other clauses in the said fine about remainders and reversions in the event of failure of heirs on the part of James, Amicia or John, illegal entry into the title of the manor and provision to protect the succession to heirs from this, stipulations about the amount of rent to be paid each quarter and the days for paying, which are to be overseen by John, Abbott of Cerne.
Dated at Cerne, 24 November in the 26th year of the reign of Henry VI.
[1447]
The original court record is held in the Dorset History Centre (index number D1815/50). It is in Latin, and has suffered some damage. The History Centre index states that this document includes a history of the manor of Sutton Poyntz, but on examination, this is not so.

It is clear that in 1447, the manor was held by James Butler, Earl of Ormond and his wife Amicia. The arbitrators awarded the manor to James and Amicia, with remainder (should James and Amicia die without issue, as indeed happened) to John Newburgh. The rights of the existing sub-tenants (Revd William Selke and William Combe) were recognised.

Remainder, in the event Robert and Margaret have no children, to John Neuburgh of Estlulleworth and his wife Alice, and their heirs, and remainder should they have no children to Robert's heirs.

1449 Grant of the manor of Godlyngston in Purbeck, plus property in "Dene, Ollewelle, Swanewich, Herston and Lewestfyld" and Studland, to Robert and Margaret Rempston. Remainder, in the event Robert and Margaret have no children, to John Neuburgh of Estlulleworth and his wife Alice, and their heirs, and remainder should they have no children to Robert's heirs. Although it is not stated explicitly, the most likely interpretation of this is that Margaret was the daughter of John Newburgh and his wife Alice, and this was a marriage settlement.
