James NEWTON

1748—1804

A Londoner, whose addresses included Denmark Street, Soho (1776), Mr Gamble's near King's Arms Stairs, Lambeth (1777) and Constitution Row, Gray's Inn Road (1799-1802), Newton's copper-engraved plates provided many of the hand-coloured illustrations of Cornwall for Grose's Antiquities of England & Wales (1786). 

His brother William (1735-90) was an architect, and son William John (1785- 1869) also became an engraver.
