  By special remainder, Sir John's baronetcy passed to another Sir John Newton who also acquired Barr's Court. TCB (vol iii, Newton of Barrscourt in Bilton) reports a Lord Monson as having said: "There was no relationship whatever between the Newtons of Gloucestershire and the Newtons of Lincolnshire; no, not the most distant". TCB concludes that the transaction, setting the succession to the estate & baronetcy, was "done for money".
