Phillip Lews

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date

I'm trying to find out who the parents of Phillip Lewis are. Phillip (I believe) was born around 1927 in Pontypridd, Glamorgan in Wales - and his Mum's maiden name was Peters. He married Ivy John and they had a Daughter - Jeanette Lewis - in 1948.

Phillip and Ivy are my Grandparents - Jeanette is my birth Mum.

I know the information I've given is a little sparse, but I've never been let down on here yet :-)

Thank you for your help,

The only way to be certain is to order a copy of his birth cert.

There is one other Lewis/Peters birth in the same area in 1920.

This is the only marriage that jumps out, but you need the birth cert to check
