In my family tree: Daniel Lewis born abt 1861 in London, parents were: James Lewis born abt 1837 London, and Mary Ann Crawford born abt 1839. James parents were: George Lewis born abt 1807 ? London, and Elizabeth Mutler born abt 1812. Who were George Lewis parents ? Can they be found... ?

I know my Lewis family lived in the London areas, but I've always wondered if any link with Wales ?

There's a tree on Ancestry which says George's father was James Lewis who died 3/9/1838. No source given as proof.
