    Name Meaning

    English: habitational name from one or more of the many places with this name in Buckinghamshire, Cornwall, Devon, Essex, Gloucestershire, Isle of Wight, Monmouthshire, Shropshire, Somerset, or the East Yorkshire. The placenames derive from Middle English neue ‘new’ + port ‘port, harbour’, also ‘market town’ (Old English nīwe, port).

    History: The earliest known bearer of this name in North America was Christopher Newport (died 1617), an English mariner who served with Sir Francis Drake's Cádiz expedition of 1587. In 1592 he commanded a successful privateering expedition to the West Indies, taking 19 Spanish vessels. He married three times and had two daughters and two sons, one of whom, John, lived to acquire land in VA.
