Thomas Lewis 1890

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date

KateScottThomas Report 11 Nov 2012 17:30

Hello everyone,

I know i'm a complete pain, but i wonder if you could please help me one last time.

I have had major trouble finding one of my great grandfathers. Thomas Lewis. i have finally found a marriage document for Thomas and Edith Bligh. From there i have also found his parents and siblings.

Father: William samual Lewis born about 1856
Mother: Mary Ann (Unknown last name) born about 1856 in Paddington
Sibblings: William Lewis born about 1880 in Kensington
George Lewis born about 1885 in Kensington
John Lewis born about 1888 in Kensington
Albert Lewis born about 1894 in Kensington
Viloet Lewis born about 1900 in Kensington



Now this is where i have really hit a major brick wall. I have not been successful in finding anything else. I know this all to be true as i have finally managed to get in contacgrett with my Nan's brother. He was able to confirm for me that his grandfather was named William as he had the marriage certificate for his parents, Thomas and Edith. I am really struggling to find anything that could lead me to Mary Ann's last name and even more so my great grandparents grandparents.

I know i'm a right pain but i really would appreciate any help anyone can give me.

Thank you so much to everyone who has helped me in the past and to those who may help me in the future.

Best regards and wishes

Katy

William Samuel and Mary Ann had daughters by the names of Louisa and Jane.

You really needs to buy a birth cert for one of Will and Mary Ann's children to be sure of her maiden name.
