Lang Syne Welsh Family Clan Information History Fact Book - Lewis
A name of truly ancient roots that are steeped in bloody invasion and conquest, ‘Lewis’ features prominently in the historical record, with a rich and heady brew of the blood of ancient Britons, Anglo-Saxons, Vikings and Normans flowing through the veins of its bearers today.
Notable bearers include not only a revered sixteenth century Welsh religious martyr, but also the Nobel Prize-winning geneticist Edward B. Lewis, Isaac Lewis, inventor of the Lewis light machine-gun that was first used to deadly effect on the battlefields of the First World War and the three-time Oscar-winning actor Daniel Day-Lewis.
Their stirring and inspiring tale, from earliest times to the present, is recorded here.
