Newton Ferrers is a village in the civil parish of Newton and Noss in the English county of Devon, about 6mi south-east of Plymouth on the River Yealm estuary. It lies within the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The village has a population of 1,268 according to the 2011 Census. The electoral ward of Newton and Noss had a population of 1,814 at the 2011 census.HistoryNewton Ferrers was recorded in the 1086 Domesday Book as Niwetone. The village was "given" to a Norman noble family "Ferrers" and the village became Newton Ferrers. It is the likely birthplace of the notorious 17th-century pirate Henry Every.The Royal National Lifeboat Institution established a lifeboat station at the mouth of the Newton Creek in March 1878. A stone boat house was built and the boat was launched into the River Yealm using a slipway. The station was closed in 1927 by which time Plymouth Lifeboat Station had been equipped with a motor lifeboat which could cover the area more effectively. During its 49 years three different lifeboats operated from the 'Yealm River Lifeboat Station': Bowman (1878), Darling (1887) and Michael Smart (1904).
