Family and Education
In May 1396 Newlyn and others were indicted before a commission of gaol delivery for having broken into Richard Clewer’s* house in Bath five years previously, only to be acquitted. Newlyn was engaged in the production of cloth in Bath, being assessed for alnage on five broad cloths made there in 1402-3. He served on a jury in May 1409 concerned with the suicide of Thomas Rymour*, and was one of the committee of four which brought the city’s parliamentary return to the sheriff of Somerset in March 1421. He is not recorded after the summer of 1430, when he gave evidence about the seizure of some cloth at Bath by the alnager.
