    • Research Notes from Christopher Carter Lee
      David Lewis was the son of "John Lewis, plant[er]" according to the baptism entry for David's brother Abraham Lewis. He was not the same man as "John Lewis, Esq." (as Isabella Miller's husband, Councilor John Lewis, is called in the 1704 quit rent roll of New Kent County. The same role shows another John Lewis with 375 acres of land, appropriate to "plant[er] designation of David and Abraham Lewis's father John. For further, see John Frederick Dorman's refutation of this proposed relationship in The American Genealogist, vol. 79 (July 2004), Page 219.
