This is the "official" web site of the Lewis' who lived in Bromsgrove until c.1810 and then moved to Handsworth, where they stayed until the 1880's before moving to the Home Counties.
The LEWIS family which was living in the Bromsgrove area in the 18th Century were mainly comprised of agricultural labourers, and had probably been living in the area for centuries; the Welsh derivation of the surname suggests an earlier migration along the ancient drovers' roads from the Welsh Marches.
My current lines of research are to find where, when and how Martin LEWIS died, and to find out more about the Lewis' who grew up in Handsworth in the early 19th Century.
