NEWSOME Family HistoryThis name, with variant spellings Newsom, Newsam, Newsum and Newsham, is of northern English locational origin from any of the several places in the North and West Riding of Yorkshire called Newsham, or from Newsham in Durham near Yarm, in Lancashire near Aeston and in Northumberland. The name derives from a contracted form of the Olde English pre 7th Century 'neowan husum' meaning 'at the new houses', for example, Newham in Kirby Wiske (Yorkshire North Riding), recorded as Newehusum in the Domesday Book of 1086, appears as Newsum in the 1202 Fine Court Rolls of that county.
