Biography Still under age and a stranger to the borough, Lewis was returned at a by-election for his father’s old seat at Devizes. An inactive Member, his only certain appearances in the records of Parliament were on the committee of elections and privileges in 1669 and 1670, but either he or his uncle Richard Lewis served on five others. His name does not appear on either list of court supporters in 1669-71. ‘Mr Lewis of the West’ was reported to be courting a daughter of Sir George Sondes in 1670; but neither his will nor the codicil, executed on 4 July 1674, mentions a wife. He died in London before 23 July 1674, when the will (but not the codicil) was proved by his brother-in-law William Jephson, who inherited the Buckinghamshire estate. Lewis’s younger brother had predeceased him, and the Welsh lands went to Richard Lewis.3
