Lewis of Warner Hall: The History of a Familyby Merrow E. Sorley
The Lewis family of Warner Hall, York County, Va. probably descends from Robert Lewis of Brecon, Wales who came to Virginia in 1635. This book traces his descendants in the male and female lines, and descents from other early Virginia families. The bulk of this work is concerned with Col. John Lewis and Francis Fielding and their descendants, Col. Charles Lewis and Mary Howell and their descendants, and Col. Robert Lewis and Jane Meriwether and their descendants, with much attention given to these related families: Ambler, Ball, Barret, Bowles, Bushrod, Byrd, Carter, Cobbs, Crawford, Eppes, Fauntleroy, Fielding, Griffin, Howell, Isham, Jefferson, Kennon, Marshall, Piersey, Ragland, Randolph, Taliaferro, Taylor, Thompson, Walker, Washington, Willis, Woodson, and Worsham. From this list it would appear that half of the ancient families of Virginia are covered by this work, and indeed this is not far off the mark.
