The third revision of this work about the early (pre-1700) Lewis families in Virginia and Maryland, including information about the Lewis families that they may descend from in England and Wales, has been reorganized into three sections: First, a list of any Lewis families who came from a place specifically named and used a coat of arms that could be of use in identifying their descendants. Pedigrees of families known to have had branches in Virginia and Maryland, or claimed as ancestors by the descendants of the immigrants, are also included. Second, information on the various Lewis families of Virginia, grouped geographically. Third, information on the various Lewis families of Maryland, grouped geographically. The great number of county records published since the last edition has enabled the author to correct many errors and add vital new information to several families. He has also added many families in an effort to make this Lewis information as complete as possible.
