    The chances are they were English, Lincolnshire farmers.  I've had a look through various biogs, none of them say more than that his parents were farmers and not particularly wealthy, one biog refered to him as English.

    I believe MickS is right. According to a biography of Newton I recently read, his parents were farmers in the north of England.
