450. Thomas ? LEWIS (580). Identified "to be of Barnstable and Falmouth, and as the able first Clerk of the Suckanesset Proprietors. ... Among the many Lewis families (and the several Thomas Lewises) living in the Old Colony during the second half of the seventeenth century this line is often referred to as the George Lewis or the Barnstable Lewis line." He removed to Swansea, MA, about 1670, however there is some confusion as there were two different Thomas Lewises who removed to Swansea at that time. The 1991 Mayflower Quarterly article suggests that this Thomas Lewis is one of possible two individuals: one would be "Thomas Lewis of Barnstable/Swansea/Falmouth (c.1628-1703+), son of George Lewis of Barnstable (1600-1663/4)" and the other would be "Thomas Lewis of Lynn/Swansea/Bristol, RI 1633-1709) son of Edmund Lewis of Watertown and Lynn..." He was married to Mary DAVIS ? in 1653 in (prob.) Barnstable, MA. (581) [This marriage "is documented in the records of Barnstable's first minister, the Reverend John Lothrop and the "Records of Plymouth Colony."]
