Anna Bayes married Lt. Andrew Newcomb

Anna Bayes was born around 1658, the daughter of Thomas and Anna (Baker) Bayes. She married Lt. Andrew Newcomb around 1676. Lt. Andrew is believed to the the son of Capt. Andrew Newcomb (ca. 1616 - 1696), the immigrant ancestor of the largest branch of the Newcomb family in North America, and his first wife (name unknown). Anna and Andrew had eight children: Anna, Elizabeth, Joseph, Emeline, Tabitha, Zerviah and Mary. Anna died in 1731 in Edgartown MA. Andrew's second wife was Sarah, with whom he had seven children.


  1. Has any further information come forward about Capt. Andrew or Lt. Andrew's birthplaces? The last information I've seen only pins them down to Devonshire, England, but nothing more specific.

    1. To the best of my knowledge, no further information has come to light. For a while I was corresponding with an older gentleman named Maurice Newcombe, in England, who was also trying to find the connections from the other side. But neither one of us came across anything really helpful. From time to time I check the current research, but so far, no luck.
