William Lewis and Ellender Bonham of Charlottesville, VA

This William Lewis seems to have come from the Charlottesville, VA area and settled in what is present day Atkinson, NC within New Hanover County with his wife, Ellender Bonham, and family. William was apparently born circa 1750. He remained in New Hanover County, NC for the rest of his life.

Much of the information that the Author has in this website on this Lewis family comes from Mr. Claude S. Lewis's book entitled, "William Lewis, Jr. of Black River, North Carolina," self-published in 1982. That book focuses on the family of William Lewis, Jr, however, Mr. Claude S. Lewis acknowledged this William Lewis as a respected member of New Hanover County, NC, which he researched so heavily.

In January 2000, the Author received the first contact from this Lewis family, and additional information has been provided by Janet Gwen Keith Brown of Washington, DC, a descendent of William Lewis and Ellender Bonham. If anyone has additional information on this Lewis family, please contact the Author at the address shown below. All help is greatly appreciated.
