    Notes about John Herbert Newman:
 
This note was taken from Betty Lowries' family tree book:
"Captain Newman during 1914-18 World War was a business man and became very wealthy after inventing a twisted meat skewer to replace the previous smooth type.  He lived in London and Kent and I remember him breeding Welsh Sheep dogs as a hobby.  He married a French girl who became the first woman accountant to be appointed to work in a London Lloyds Bank, prior to her appointment Lloyds Bank had not employed women staff."
