Since there is no evidence that Edmond Lewes of Lynn was born in Wales, it remains to determine if any evidence exists as to his origin. We have only the passenger list of the ship Elizabeth as evidence that he came to Massachusetts from Ipswich, Suffolk, England. Before that, there is no record.
Many of the families traveling aboard the Elizabeth were from the area around Ipswich, as recorded in the passenger list. It seams reasonable to look at the historical records of this area to see if there were any Lewis families in the area up to 1634. this turns out to be the case.
There are numerous records of the Lewes and Lewis surnames in the area around Ipswich beginning with Ralph Lewes in Bury St. Edmunds in 1449. In addition, the name Lewes is attached to geographical features, such as Lewesindale and/or Lewes meadows in Bramford at the northwest edge of Ipswich. There is an ancient bureaucratic division in the Woodbridge area east of Ipswich called the Looes Hundred.
Throughout the area from Stoke-by-Nayland near the western border of Suffolk to Laxton in the east, the Lewes surname surfaces in the record throughout 15th through 17th Centuries. (See map) There are three records of wills in the Archdeaconry of Suffolk that name an Edmond Lewes as beneficiary, two of which, from 1625 and 1626, name Edmond as brother of John and William Lewes of Bawdsey, 15 miles east of Ipswich.
Since Edmond Lewes and his family were among passengers on the Elizabeth who were from the Ipswich area, and since the Lewes surname and Edmond Lewes in particular is documented as having lived in the Ipswich area, it seems reasonable to propose that Edmond Lewes of Lynn, Massachusetts was descended from the Lewes familes in the Ipswich area in the early 17th Century.
It remains to find documentation to support this proposition.
