LEWIS Family
Early settlers in Goulbourn Township, Ontario, Canada

March 1, 2004:

Hi, I have done a bit of research on the Lewis family from Goulbourn 
Township and was wondering if you were related to this Lewis family.  I have 
a good bit of info from the Anglican church records in Ottawa, some 
census entries and other Lewis information that I have collected while 
researching this branch of my family tree.  If you are connected please 
let me know.  My Lewis connection is through my gg grandmother Marie 
Anne Lewis, born 1856 Alice Twp, Renfrew Co, daughter of James Lewis and 
Eliza Saunders who married Robert Saunders from Beckwith Twp.

Hi Jason:

Thanks for your e-mail.

I'm not related to the Lewis family from Goulbourn.
My Lewis ancestors came from England much later than
the Goulbourn Lewis family.

April 30, 2008: Hi I am doing some research on the Lewis family and I am wondering if there is a connection. My great grandmother is Catherine H. Lewis Born Goulbourn, Ont, Canada she was married to Thomas Bradley. Catherine's parents were: John Lewis B. 1822 in Goulbourn, Ontario Canada and married to Catherine Scott B. 1826 in Goulbourn, Ont, Canada. I am looking for additional information. If we connect, please write to kitster_us@yahoo.com Thank you, ... Kit Faulkner Parkinson
