Here is a list of medieval references for Thomas Newburgh, who died in 1365. He succeeded to the family lands on the death of his father Robert in 1338, although the manor of Winfrith had already been demised to him and his wife Hawisia (probably as a marriage settlement) a year earlier. Thomas died in 1365, and was succeeded by his son John.

The references are listed in date order. Actual quotes are in italics.

1337 At York, from the day of St Michael in fifteen days, between Robert de Neuburgh, querent, and Nicholas de Neuburgh, clerk, and Adam de Tettebourne, clerk, deforciants, of the manor of Wynefred Neuburgh. Plea of covenant was summoned. Robert acknowledged the manor to be the right of Nicholas and Adam as by his gift. For this they granted the manor to him and rendered it to him in the court. To have and to hold to Robert for life, of the King and his heirs by the services which belong to the said manor, with remainder after his death to Thomas, his son and heir, and Hawisia his wife and the heirs of the bodies of Thomas and Hawisia issuing. To hold as aforesaid for ever. Should Thomas and Hawisia die without heir of their bodies issuing, the manor wholly will remain to the right heirs of Robert, to hold as aforesaid for ever. This concord was made by precept of the King.
Endorsed: John de Moigne of Ore "chivaler" put in his claim.

Robert Newburgh held the manor of Winfrith, and land at 'Horsyth' at his death.

The service rendered by the Newburgh's for Winfrith manor was to provide water for the king, with washing facilities. This document says it is on the day of the king's coronation - other documents mention Easter, Pentecost and Christmas (or perhaps the king's birthday).
