The Lewis Family of Wales and America, 1923, by Edward Simmons Lewis, states that Edmund Lewis came from Llys Talybont, Glamorgan, Wales, but offers no documentation to support the claim that the Edmund Lewis of Wales was the same person as the Edmond Lewes who traveled to Massachusetts Bay Colony aboard the Elizabeth out of Ipswich, Suffolk, England, 250 miles from Cardiff over primitive roads.

by George Harlan Lewis in 1908,does not state that Edmund Lewis of Lynn came from King's Lynn (Lynn Regis), Norfolk, England. Lewis says, "Edmund Lewis, who came to this country and first settled in Watertown, is said to have come from Lynn Regis (King's Lynn), England, but there is no record of him or any of his family on the church records there."
There is no evidence, circumstantial or otherwise, that Edmond Lewes married Mary Carey. Nor is there any evidence circumstantial or otherwise, that Edmond Lewes of Lynn, Massachusetts was the same historical person as Edmund Lewis of Llys Talybont, Glamorgan, Wales. Offering this as a possibility merely perpetuates
the myth of Edmond Lewes's origin.
