    • Notes: 
    • Harry Newman in his "To Maryland from Overseas" states the following about John Norwood:

      “John Norwood who emigrated to Anne Arundel Co. 1650 from Virginia was born 1605 at Wykeham Abby, Lincolnshire, and was the son of Tyringham Norwood (1576-1625) at Wykeham, Spaulding, Linc. - REF: Professional English research commissioned in 1961 by Norwood descendant.”

      This "professional" research is what links John Norwood of Virginia to Tyringham Norwood of England. More evidence is needed to solidify the link.
