About Felix Lewis (Collins)

The identity of his William's wife Felix is not certainly known. The most important evidence is the will of Giles Whiting of Hartford, which left his whole estate "to be disposed of by my brother William Lewis, to himself and his children at his discretion." This implies that the children of Lewis were related to Whiting and that he took an interest in them, Which would have hardly been the case unless Whiting's sister was wife of Lewis. The will was unfortunately undated in the record copy, but must be placed between 1650 and 1663. Whiting's will was made in the presence of Edward Stebbing and William Lewis Sr, and although the will does not specify senior or junior, it would seem that the man referred to as his brother was William Lewis Sr. -------------------- The identity of his William's wife Felix is not certainly known.
