Did you know sheep played a significant role in early Newport history? After moving to Aquidneck Island from the Massachusettes Bay Colony for religious differences, Newporters established farms and used an image of a sheep in the first seal of the city.
The oval wax seal features a sheep with the words, "Seal of Newport Rhoade Island Covnsel," attributed to Arnold Collins, 1696. This seal was used by William Coddington, Council Clerk of Newport, on an order of the Town Council dating September 18, 1729.
Wumper Lamb is a super soft friend, suitable for all ages. Yummy-fleecy in soft creamy fur, with a sweet beige face, waggly ears and squidgy hooves, this little lamb needs love and cuddles.
