The Lewises were a prominent and wealthy family in Gloucester County, Virginia. Fielding moved to Fredericksburg as a young man, in 1746, to learn the business of running his father's store, which he inherited in 1754 upon his father's death. As a planter and importer/exporter, Fielding became wealthy in his own right. He started construction of the new Lewis mansion (which would only be named Kenmore many years later) in 1769 and the family moved into the house in the fall of 1775.
