(Note by Dianne - since the DNA projects have started an new era of Genealogy research, it has been proven that "Planter" John Lewis did not descend from Major John Lewis of Monmouthshire or Brecknockshire Wales as stated below. Major John Lewis was the ancestor of the Warner Lewis line & the DNA tests for descendants of that line did not match with the descendants of the "Planter" John Lewis line. See Lewis DNA Test Results .)
See the DNA results from one of "Planter" JOHN's descendants also on this web site.
PIONEER LEWIS FAMILIES by Michael L. Cook Some of the below information from this book is known to be incorrect.
Indicates that Planter JOHN LEWIS was born 1718-20 probably in St. Peters Parish New Kent County, Virginia and died 1799 in Albemarle Co, Virginia. His will was dated June 16, 1786 & codicil June 3, 1794 and was probated January 6, 1800. He married Sarah Shelton daughter of Samuel and Judith Clough. Samuel’s will was probated February 1793.
John owned an Ordinary (pub or inn) in Albemarle Co. His children were Clough, Lucy Jane called Jincy, and Owen b 1752 who married Sarah Perkins daughter of Joseph Perkins whose will was probated Louisa Co, VA Nov 11, 1811 and Alice Taylor.
JOHN’s father was John Lewis born about 1691. He & his brothers Owen & James were orphaned by 1691.
Information furnished by Bunny Shumate Freeman says this was in Volume 4 as group #9L.
[Note from Dianne - only a part of the above is correct. Samuel Shelton names his grandchildren in his will in 1793 as the children of John Lewis, Jr. In 1793 John Lewis Jr would have been the son of Planter JOHN who would have been Sr. at that time. The wife was not named, but the granddaughter was named Sarah. The children listed above as children of Planter John are children of his son John Jr. John Jr had a son named Owen, but the Owen b 1752 was the son of Planter JOHN. His wife Sarah Perkins was the daughter of Hardin Perkins & Sarah Price. Their children are called out in wills of both grandparents and she is not in the will of Joseph Perkins.]
Information sent from Sara Sinchcomb to Chuck Patout says the following is in Volume 5.
9L2800 JOHN LEWIS JR. b ca 1718-20 probably in St. Peter’s Parish, New Kent Co, Va and died 1799 in Albemarle Co, Va. Married ELIZABETH surname unknown but she was deceased by 1777, as the wife after that time was designated as Susanna. He was the son of:
9L036 John Lewis b ca 1691 probably in Glouchester Co Va wife unknown. He was the son of:
9L013 Nicholas Lewis b ca 1671 resided in Glouchester Co, Va wife unknown but by 1699 both were deceased. He was the son of:
9L005 Major John Lewis b ca 1639-40 probably in Monmouthshire or Brecknockshire, Wales. Died ca 1689. Married probably to Isabella Miller who probably later married Robert Yard a vestryman of the Upper Precinct of Petsworth parish in 1690. DNA testing has proved this line to be incorrect.
JOHN LEWIS was a planter who lived near Scottsville, Albemarle Co., Va. Although there was no proof, JOHN claimed to be the son of Owen Lewis who was suppose to be a nephew or perhaps younger son of Zachary Lewis, the Welsh immigrant. Owen Lewis appears on the church register of the Theological Seminar, Fairfax County, Virginia, contemporaneously with the second Zachary, and as the name comes down in the same line with that of Zachary, he was no doubt an older brother, the birth of his oldest child being given March 19, 1714, and PLANTER JOHN LEWIS has a son Owen, and Zachary is perpetuated in his family. John Lewis, son of "PLANTER JOHN", had his will probated 1804. Owen Lewis and Zachary Lewis, brother and nephew, and John Staples are named executors.
The will of PLANTER JOHN LEWIS names 2 sons and 6 daughters, all married.
Information from Robert J. C. K. Lewis:
Michael Cook's article on John Sr in Vol 5 of Pioneer Lewis Families, p 79, and he found a list of the names and dates of birth of all John Sr's children in a book on Judge W A Hocker, that the Judge found in an old hymnal. The book is " William Adam Hocker, 1844-1918, Justice of the Supreme Court of Florida" by Elizabeth Marshall Venable, 1941. The hymnal had belonged to William Lewis, grandson of John Sr.
He copied the list down as follows:
1. Elizabeth Lewis, b 7 Apr 1736
2. Ann Lewis, b. 15 May 1738
3. Sarah Lewis, b. 25 Jan 1740
4. Mary Lewis, b. 26 Jul 1747
5. John Lewis Jr b 6 Jun 1749
6. Owen Lewis, b. 12 Sep 1750
7. Susanna Lewis, b. 29 Oct 175- (prob 1752)
8. Zachariah Lewis, b. 11 Apr 1754 (prob died young)
9. Lucy Jane (Jenny / Jincy) Lewis), b 22 Mar 1759
LEWISES, MERIWETHERS AND THEIR KIN
by Sarah Travers Lewis (Scott) Anderson 292.2A
p. 4 "PLANTER" JOHN LEWIS of Albemarle near Scottsville sees a separate line, supposed to be descended from or related to Zachary Lewis. The will of this JOHN LEWIS is in Albemarle records, written July 1786, codicil 1792-1794 probated June 6, 1800. This family intermarried with Gilmers, Gnautts and Pattersons.
p. 250 Daughter of Waddy Thomson, Sr., and Elizabeth Anderson, m John Lewis b 1749 d 1804 son of "PLANTER" JOHN LEWIS of Albemarle,and his wife SARAH SHELTON. JOHN LEWIS will dated 16 July 1780--I bequeath to Sally Ming all property which came by first wife-her mother - To John Waddy Lewis all property except 1/2 to beloved wife SARAH LEWIS for her lifetime -- To John Waddy and Elizabeth Anderson Lewis all property that came by present wife which she has 1/3. Brother Owen Lewis & Zachary Lewis Executors. Probated Feb 6, 1804
p. 356 The family of JOHN LEWIS, the "Planter", near Scottsville, Albemarle County, Va., claim a descent from Owen Lewis, who is supposed to be a nephew or perhaps a younger son of Zachary Lewis, the immigrant, but we have no record of this.
p. 448 Neither does the name Iverson appear in the family of John Lewis, the Planter, of Scottsville, Albemarle County, who however retained the Zachary, and through their ancestor, Owen Lewis, claim relationship to the Welsh family of Zachary Lewis.
Information Bobbie Howell received from Nettie Brown Sparks.
The information shows the Warner Lewises, President Thomas Jefferson, & Meriweather Lewis lines. She states that these are all relations of John Lewis of Goochland County, Virginia.
John Lewis of Goochland county is the grandfather of John Lewis of Albemarle county, Virginia. John Lewis of Albemarle County is the father of JOHN LEWIS, whose son Owen Lewis is the father of Nicholas Lewis of Talacah, Alabama.
John Lewis of Albemarle County married the daughter of Samuel Shelton. John Lewis was one of the earliest settlers in Albemarle County and entered land on Totier Creek in 1741. When the location of the courthouse was fixed, he obtained a license to conduct an Ordinary at his place.
[Note by Dianne: It was the son of JOHN LEWIS of Albemarle that married Samuel Shelton’s daughter. Samuel refers to him as John Jr in his will in 1793. John Jr. wasn’t born until 1749. This came from Rev. Edgar Woods’ book which is incorrect.]
This John and his wife had three children:
Jane Lewis, married Richard Davenport and moved to Georgia.
John Lewis died in 1804 and left three heirs, Sarah, Elizabeth, and John Waddy Lewis, who died in 1824
[Note by Dianne: these are children of John Jr. - son of JOHN LEWIS of Albemarle. Elizabeth & John Waddy are children of his second wife Sarah Thompson. The children by his first wife - daughter of Samuel Shelton are listed in their grandfather’s will. Sarah is from that first marriage.]
THE DESCENDANTS OF NICHOLAS PERKINS by Hall
p. 81 Sarah Perkins married about 1775 Owen Lewis (son of JOHN LEWIS).
THE HISTORY OF ALBEMARLE by Rev. Edgar Woods 975.584 p.256-7
The head of the third family of the name was JOHN LEWIS, who was one of the earliest settlers in the county. He entered land on Totier Creek in 1741. When the location of the old courthouse was fixed, he obtained a license to conduct an ordinary at the place. He seems to have married a daughter of Samuel Shelton, and had two sons, and a daughter, Jane, who became the wife of Richard Davenport, and removed to Georgia. John, the elder son, died in 1804, and left three children, Sarah, John Waddy, who died in 1824, and Elizabeth. Owen, the other son, died in 1805, and his children were William, John, Hardin P, Howell, Robert, Nicholas, Daniel P. Zachariah, and Sarah, who was the wife of Jacob Tilman, and removed to Tennessee. Most of the sons were considerable land owners in the southern part of the country, particularly on the lower Hardware. Some of them also transacted a lucrative business in transporting freight on James River, and the canal. Hardin P. emigrated to Alabama. In 1821 Robert in a quarrel fatally stabbed Thompson Noel, a tavern keeper in Scottsville, and fled the country. It is said he went to Memphis, Tenn., and in course of time acquired a large fortune. A great granddaughter of the first JOHN LEWIS was the first wife of the late Christopher Gilmer, and a great grandson, Zachariah, recently died in Nelson county, immediately above the mouth of Rockfish River. A similarity of names suggests a relationship between this family and that first mentioned.
[Note by Dianne: The first JOHN above did not marry a daughter of Samuel Shelton - his son John (b 1749) did & was called out in Samuel’s will 1793 as John Lewis, Jr. It is believed Sam’s daughter was already dead at the time of the will - she is not mentioned by name. It is only speculation that her name was Sarah Shelton. John Jr. married 2)Sarah Thompson & had Sarah, John Waddy, & Elizabeth. He is the John that died 1804. Owen, father of the above listed children died before 1811.]
