Barnet Lewis1

b. between 1750 and 1760, d. between 12 February 1807 and 19 February 1807
  • Barnet Lewis was probably born between 1750 and 1760.
  • He died between 12 February 1807 and 19 February 1807.
  • He was a Revolutionary War soldier. Barnett Lewis from Somerset Co., New Jersey. Also, Barney Lewis of Somerset and Edward Lewis of Somerset.2
  • He was found on the tax list at Bernards Twp., Somerset Co., New Jersey, in 1792 (also there in 1793, 1796, 1797, and 1803).3
  • His will was dated on 12 February 1807 proved 19 Feb 1807. Barnet Lewis of Bernards Twp., Somerset Co., New Jersey. Lands to be rented out or left in the hands of William Duke, for the support of my aged father, Edward Lewis, during his life. After father's death, real and personal estate to be sold and divided into three shares. Edward Brewer and Mary Brewer (son and daughter of John Brewer and Elsie, his first wife, my sister), each one share. Brother, Edward Lewis, 1/2 share. Sister, Elsey Duke (wife of William Duke), 1/2 share. Executors: Jonathan Pennington and William Smith (on 16 Feb 1807 adds William Duke as an additional executor). Witnesses: David Morton, Jonathan Alward, John Heath. Presented for probate by Jonathan Pennington and William Smith. Inventory taken 9 Mar 1807 by John Heath and Thomas Lewis. Total - $348.87. (Somerset Co. File 1332 R).1,4
  • Edward Lewis and Barnet Lewis, are suggested as father and son by Ralph K. Potter in Lewises of Northern New Jersey. Potter notes the 1807 will of Barnet Lewis and its provision for providing for "my aged father Edward Lewis," and mention of "my brother Edward." Potter can find no other Edward Lewis who would be living in 1807 and who would be old enough to be the father of Barnet Lewis. He suggests that Edward Lewis may have been married prior to his marriage to Nancy Crowell "(the first wife may have been named Elsie Barnet or Burnet"), and had four children, Barnet, Edward, Elsie and Elsey. However, later in his book, Potter mentions "Three Other N.J. Lewises of Interest." One of these is an Edward Lues (Lewis?) of Basking Ridge who had the inventory of his estate taken 17 Nov 1731. This Edward cannot be a son of Samuel Lewis (who's son Edward was still living in 1736) but he "could have been a nephew." Alice Lewis was the executor of his estate, and the inventory suggests he had a substantial house. This unplaced Edward Lewis (inventory taken 1731) may have been the ancestor of Barnet Lewis. Potter was apparently unaware of the ages of Barnet Lewis' nephew and niece, Edward and Mary Brewer, mentioned in his will. All indications are that they were born in the 1770s, therefore implying that their mother, Elsie, sister to Barnet, was born in the 1750s. She would then be a contemporary to Edward Lewis (b.1750 himself) and could not be a daughter. It is not likely that Edward Lewis married twice, and it is not lilely that Barnet, Edward, Elsie and Elsey, are his children.5
  • Barnet Lewis is a possible descendant of Edward Lewis.

Edward Lewis1,2

b. 10 May 1750, d. 27 May 1817
  • Edward Lewis was born on 10 May 1750 at New Jersey.2
  • He married Nancy Crowell, daughter of Enos Crowell and Dorthy Burnet, at "Battle Hill", now Madison, Morris Co., New Jersey, on 9 December 1781.2
  • Edward Lewis died on 27 May 1817 at Basking Ridge (Bernards Twp.), Somerset Co., New Jersey.2
  • He was buried at Basking Ridge (Bernards Twp.), Somerset Co., New Jersey; the monument reads in part, "In memory of Edward Lewis, Esq., Assistant Commisary of Issues in the Army of the Revolution."2
  • His will was dated on 26 May 1817 "Edward Lewis of Bernards Township, Somerset Co.," left his estate for the support of his wife Nancy, two younger and unmarried daughters, Maria and Phebe, and yougest son, Edward Morris. The two eldest sons, William and Samuel, were excluded as they had already received their portions. The third son, Henry, had his portion reduced by "One hundred and Twenty Dollars by which I had paid for his education." Names all children, Henry, Edward M., Sarah, Nancy, Phebe and Mariah, the two eldest, William and Samuel having received their portions. Names as executors, his wife Nancy, and two sons, Henry and Edward M., and daughters Phebe and Maria. Witnesses: William B. Gaston, Samuel Doty, A.Y. Nicoll (Nevill?). Proved 25 June 1817, when Nancy and Phebe Lewis signed as executrices.2,4
  • Inventory of estate taken on 16 June 1817 $1,153.80; made by John Dayton, William B. Gaston. Includes unfinished leather in tan yard, bark, and the bark mill.5
  • On 15 August 1836 an application was executed for Nancy Lewis, widow of Edward Lewis who died 27 May 1817, for a pension based upon her husband's service during the Revolutionary War.
    The application states that Edward Lewis was born 10 May 1750 in Basking Ridge, Somerset County, New Jersey and lived there with his father before the beginning of the Revolutionary War. The name of his mother was not given, nor was the birth date of his father. Edward Lewis entered service sometime late in 1776, as Assistant Commissary of Issues for New Jersey in the Brigade commanded by General Conway. He served until 1783. He was at the battle of Springfield in 1780, and was in another large battle in Virginia "at the end of the war." He was also involved in many skirmishes on the New Jersey shore.
    On 9 Dec 1781 he married Nancy Crowell. The names of her parents are not stated. She remained at home with her father that winter, and in June 1782, went to live in the home of her husband'd father, Edward Lewis, Senior, in Basking Ridge, New Jersey. Nancy was born 1 Nov 1757, place not stated. She was allowed a pension based upon the account of her husband's service and died 29 March 1838.
    Reference is made to seven children, but the only name given is that of their youngest child Edward M. Lewis, born April 1797. After the death of Edward Lewis in 1817, Nancy Lewis moved from the homestead in Basking Ridge to a farm in the neighborhood, and lived their with her son, Edward M. Lewis. She was living there in 1836.
    Judge Conger of Morris County, New Jersey was stated to be a son-in-law of Edward Lewis, but the name of his wife is not given.
    William L. Dayton, Edward Lewis's grandson. lived in Freehold, New Jersey, at the time Nancy Lewis made her application. In 1848, William L. Dayton was a U.S. Senator from New Jersey.
    In 1836, Henry Southard, aged 89 years, resided in Basking Ridge, New Jersey. He married the sister of Edward Lewis, the officer, and lived in the same house in Basking Ridge when Edward and Nancy came there in 1782.6
  • Edward Lewis and Barnet Lewis, are suggested as father and son by Ralph K. Potter in Lewises of Northern New Jersey. Potter notes the 1807 will of Barnet Lewis and its provision for providing for "my aged father Edward Lewis," and mention of "my brother Edward." Potter can find no other Edward Lewis who would be living in 1807 and who would be old enough to be the father of Barnet Lewis. He suggests that Edward Lewis may have been married prior to his marriage to Nancy Crowell "(the first wife may have been named Elsie Barnet or Burnet"), and had four children, Barnet, Edward, Elsie and Elsey. However, later in his book, Potter mentions "Three Other N.J. Lewises of Interest." One of these is an Edward Lues (Lewis?) of Basking Ridge who had the inventory of his estate taken 17 Nov 1731. This Edward cannot be a son of Samuel Lewis (who's son Edward was still living in 1736) but he "could have been a nephew." Alice Lewis was the executor of his estate, and the inventory suggests he had a substantial house. This unplaced Edward Lewis (inventory taken 1731) may have been the ancestor of Barnet Lewis. Potter was apparently unaware of the ages of Barnet Lewis' nephew and niece, Edward and Mary Brewer, mentioned in his will. All indications are that they were born in the 1770s, therefore implying that their mother, Elsie, sister to Barnet, was born in the 1750s. She would then be a contemporary to Edward Lewis (b.1750 himself) and could not be a daughter. It is not likely that Edward Lewis married twice, and it is not lilely that Barnet, Edward, Elsie and Elsey, are his children.7

Edward Lewis1

b. circa 1712, d. 22 June 1792
  • Edward Lewis was probably born circa 1712 at Woodbridge, New Jersey.3
  • He was said to be born on 8 August 1722 at Wales (First Presbyterian Church of Morristown records, which appear to be in error).3
  • He married Sarah Morris, daughter of Daniel Morris and Mary Riggs, on 30 May 1745.3
  • Edward Lewis died on 22 June 1792; as per the First Presbyterian Church records which erroneously record his birth date as 8 Aug 1722.3
  • In a document of 1762, concerning his sale of land in Somerset County to the Presbyterian Church of Basking Ridge, he is described as Edward Lewis, cordwainer, of Bernards Town. The register of the First Presbyterian Church of Morristown records the entry, "Edward Lewis, son of Samuel, b. in Wales, 8 Aug 1722." Ralph Kimball Potter states that the place is certainly incorrect and the year is at least ten years later then it should be. The Janeway account identifies Edward as a brother of Levi Lewis and son of Samuel Lewis, and it records deliveries of merchandise to Edward Lewis in Basking Ridge during 1735 and 1736.3
  • He was named in the will of Thomas Lewis dated on 17 September 1763 probated 5 Oct 1763, mentions his brother "Edward of Bernards Town."4
  • Edward Lewis was found on the tax list at Mendham, Morris Co., New Jersey, 1778 and 1780.5
  • Ralph Kimball Potter cites an undated manuscript by H.S.F. Randolph at the Morristown Library, for some of his information on the descendants of Edward Lewis.
