Lewis Genealogy & History

Lewis genealogy presents researchers with several different origins, including English, Old High German, and Norman French (Louis and Lowis), but generally mean "leader" or "famous warrior". This name was also used to replace many "foreign" names as emigrants arrived in the USA. Surnames commonly replaced included Lewes, Levi, Leuwarden, Llywelyn, Ludwig, and Lughaidh. Consequently, Lewis family history and the meaning of the name vary. Lewises arrived in North America as early as 1623. Famous Lewises include the actor and director Jerry Lee Lewis, the explorer Meriwether Lewis, the Nobel Laureate Sinclair Lewis, and the British academic and writer C. S. Lewis.
