History: (taken from Newbury Website)

Newbury’s beginning coincided with the construction of the Great Western Railway built in 1851. It was known as Ward’s Station until 1854 when a post office was established and was renamed Newbury after a village in England. Most of the residents came from England or Northern Ireland.

Robert Thompson registered the first plan of subdivision in the Village and as well was the first post master. The earliest available minutes of council are dated 1882. It was noted that in the early years Newbury had a flourmill, seven hotels, two doctors, three churches, one school, a library, town hall, basket factory, and fire hall. Gas was installed in the Village in 1953.

Newbury still houses several businesses, three churches, the W. Bayne Library, a fire hall, the Royal Bank (1961), Royal Canadian Legion Branch 583 (1960), the Newbury Services Office that holds the municipal office and the postal outlet. In 1967 Four Counties General Hospital was proudly opened to the public and in 1972 the Newbury Medical Clinic was also opened. Dr. Coulby, Newbury’s orthodontist opened his office in 1995.

In 1872 the population was recorded at 750 residents. Today Newbury’s population is 439 but moving towards a large predicted increase due to sewer and water services and its ideal location. Newbury is approximately a one-hour drive east to London and Talbotville and one and a half-hour drive west to Windsor. It is situated about 10 minutes south to Highway 401 and about an hour north to Sarnia. Newbury has a quiet rural atmosphere with many urban services offered.
