I am John Fielding Lewis, Jr., President General of the Lewis Family Descendants. I hope you are reading this because you are interested in the Lewis family, or, you are already a documented lineage member.
The Lewis Family Descendants help to support Kenmore Mansion, the colonial home of Betty Washington and Fielding Lewis in Fredericksburg, Virginia.
Our membership includes, primarily, descendants of Fielding Lewis, Sr. and Betty Washington Lewis, George Washington's only sister. Our Lewis family meets, in Virginia, for a Heritage Weekend each summer. We visit sites related to Betty and Fielding, and we discuss our lines of descent with each other. Our gathering event for 2021 is currently being evaluated by our Board members. For more information regarding our 2021 plans, please select the Contact option on this website.
If you are interested in joining us as a documented, lineage member, the process for membership is discussed on this website. We cordially invite you to apply, if you think you are eligible.
A list of Qualifying Ancestors is on this website. If you can document your legal, blood descent from these ancestors you will not need to document your earlier Lewis Ancestor. This list of Qualifying Ancestors brings your proven descent much closer to your own generation.
We do look forward to hearing from you and I hope you find this website helpful.
