This page is still being researched. It has NOT yet been launched formally into the Database but is shown here TEMPORARILY (albeit for an uncertain length of time pending further research), partly to record connections that we fear we might otherwise lose sight of and partly in the hope that one or more visitors to the site will contribute information that will enable us to develop our information on the families covered in this page to a standard that would support release of a dedicated page in the Database.

Wright wrote that this family "we are informed, were derived from Lewis, dauphin of France, afterwards king Lewis the eighth, who was invited here by the barons in the time of king John. During his stay, he had an intrigue with an English lady, co-heiress of a great estate, by whom he had a son, Lewis Fitz-Lewis. This lady was afterwards married to a nobleman, from whom some of our greatest families are descended." This kind of 'derivation' makes us nervous so we have placed this family in this temporary page pending finding a source which gives us more confidence in this pedigree.
Lewis FitzLewis
m. Margaret of Essex
1. Sir John FitzLewis (d Boroughbridge 1322)
m. Elizabeth de Harpenden
  A. Sir Richard FitzLewis
  m. Elizabeth le Baude
  i. Sir John FitzLewis (aka Lewis John) of West Thorndon (Horndon), Essex (d 27.10.1442)
  m1. Elizabeth Neville (dau of Robert Neville)
  a. Elizabeth FitzLewis
  Various sources, for example BE1883 (Montacute of Salisbury) and Visitation (Suffolk, 1561, Wingfield of Wingfield and Letheringham), show Elizabeth as Sir John's daughter by Anne Montacute.
  m. Sir John Wingfield (d 1481)
  Wright suggests that John's 2nd wife Alicia de Vere was dau of John, 12th Earl of Oxford. BE1883 (Vere) shows her 2 generations earlier as ...
m2. Alicia de Vere (dau of Aubrey de Vere, 10th Earl of Oxford)
  b. Sir Lewis FitzLewis

(1) Mary FitzLewis
  m1. (before 10.1480) Anthony Woodville, Earl Rivers (b c1440, dspl 25.06.1483)
  Wright identifies Mary's 2nd husband as "Sir John, a natural son of the earl of Westmoreland, to whom she bore Anne, married to sir John Markham" but TCP (Rivers) identifies him as Sir George Neville. The Markham records show Sir John Markham (a 1547) married to Anne, daughter of Sir George Neville (not John).

We have seen (on a website) an extract from an unidentified book which quotes Hutchinson's "History of Durham", vol 2, as identifying the husbands of the following Anthony's 3 (unnamed) daughters as shown below.
