Family History - Lewis

Not surprisingly, perhaps, the Lewis family were from Wales.  Stephen Lewis (see right), was a well-known Calvinist Methodist Minister, who ran a small school in Cardiff.  His wife was Sarah Park, who, so the family stories go, was thought to have married beneath herself.  She was always referred to as "Sarah Turner-Park" (Turner was her mother's maiden name) and there are said to be links with Holme Lacey House.  However, all we have discovered so far is that the family appear to have farmed on the Somerset-Dorset border.
