Hi Russell

You mention Newth in your list of surnames. I have a photo of James Newth, taken at the end of the 19th century when he was the town's oldest resident, over 100 years old.

Hi Russell

I've sent you a photo of James Newth taken at the end of the 19th century when he was around 100 years old. I have more details on him which I will post here when I find them.

[quote="dursleyglos"]Hi Russell. You mention Newth in your list of surnames. I have a photo of James Newth, taken at the end of the 19th century when he was the town's oldest resident, over 100 years old.[/quote]
I was very interested to see your reference to James Newth. I suspect this is the same James Newth who is a great, great, great grandfather to me. In the mid nineteenth century he had a furniture business at the end of Long Street, Dursley. I have in my possession a small, portable writing desk made there, and given to his daughter Elizabeth, which has passed down the generations to me. Elizabeth married my great, great grandfather, William Neale Cretchley, in Dursley in 1861. William Neale Cretchley was born in Dursley in 1832 and lived there until he was an adult when he moved to Kingswood, Surrey, where he ran a school. William Neale and Elizabeth had one child, William Robert, born in 1862. Just two months after he was born, Elizabeth died, and William Robert was sent to Dursley to be brought up by his maternal grandparents, James Newth and his wife (name not known). William Robert's paternal grandfather, Philip Cretchley, lived in Long Street at this time, where he worked as a "Cordwainer" (a maker by hand of good quality boots and shoes, using the customer's own lasts). From my research into my family history in Dursley, it is clear that the Newths were a long standing Dursley family. I would certainly like to know more about James Newth.

Hi Bob

The information I have about James Newth is that he was born in Dursley in 1814; became a cabinet maker following the trade of his father, also James.

He moved premises around Dursley until in the 1860s he settled in Long Street roughly opposite the present Gazette works (Reliance House). His son continued as a cabinet maker on this site after James left in the 1870s. This move would have been about the time James' wife died and may have been the cause of it. He settled in Wisteria House in May Lane with a second wife and her sister, both running a private school.

James died in 1917 having reached a grand old age of over 100. At the time he was living with his grandson, Herbert A. Newth, in the premises in Woodmancote that had been the Dursley Agricultural and Commercial Grammar School.

Below is a picture of James Newth you may be interested in.

I hope this is of some help.

Concerning Newth, in the house mentioned which was the Dursley Agricultural and Commercial Grammar School on Woodmancote, there is a pencilled inscription on a wall reading in part: "James Newth Jnr papered this room 23rd July 1860...".

Newth. - In 1838 James Newth of Dursley added a Hautboy stop to the Swell organ at Berkeley Parish Church. [Glos Archives P42 CW2/3].
A Bill from James Newth for £8.10s0d. survives for new bellows for organ, carriage, altering and tuning for work done on 15 Sept 1853 on the chamber organ at Chavanage House, Gloucestershire. [Glos Archives D 547a/E26]. There is another bill [E30] for materials a cabinet maker might use. I know of no more details of Newth's organ building work. Anyone know any more please?
