I know Lewis is a big name in Lynn (i used to live off of Lewis St), but I haven't had too much investigation into them yet. I did do a little work on the family of Frank Alley Lewis (married Ida Kollock). I only got a few generations though. to his parents Frank Alley Lewis and Mabel Sanger Southwick (i've actually done much on the southwicks), his parents John Conway Lewis and Susan M Alley. and his parents Nathaniel Lewis and Abigail Perkins. Thats as far as I went though so far.


(Ida Kollock's sister Lillian married into the Goodell family of Nahant, which is the line I start with.)


I also have a few strays. Sarah A Lewis who married Charles Leavitt. I only know she was born in Lynn. nothing else on her yet. Also have a Sally Lewis (no info known yet), that married a Stephen Rich of Lynn. I have 2 other Lewis in my file, but they connect with Boston and Gloucester. No sign of Lynn yet.

My 11th Great Grandfather was Edmond Lewes, who came to Watertown, Massachusetts from Ipswich, Suffolk, England in 1634 on the Elizabeth, with his wife Mary and sons John and Thomas. Edmond moved to Lynn in 1639, where he bought land at Wood End bordered by Stacey's Brook, now the dividing line between Lynn and Swampscott. Edmond died in 1651, Mary in 1658. John stayed in Lynn and his descendants lived there for the next 300 years.

Lewis Street in Lynn is named for Edmond Lewis and family. Lewis of Lynn Signs was founded in 1886 by Joseph Carlton Lewis, a descendant of Edmond Lewes.
