Henry Newman (1837-1912) was born in Liverpool, England, in 1837, the son of Josiah Newman and Harriet Wood. He was educated at Bootham School in York, England. Newman began working at his father's grocery business in Leominster in 1858. He married Mary Ann Pumphry in 1863, and they had six children. Newman was an active Quaker throughout his life, and served as the clerk for his Monthly Meeting for over 20 years, and was recorded a minister in 1869. From 1888 to 1890, he travelled throughout the United States, visiting all of the Orthodox and Hicksite Yearly Meetings. In Leominster, Newman was also very active in education- he was one of the founders of Leominster Adult School and was leader of the Leominster Men's School for 54 years. He also founded the Leominster Orphan houses. After retiring from business in 1892, Newman became the editor of the Quaker journal, "The Friend," and served as the editor until his death in Leominster, in October, 1912.
