The huge amount of information that I have on the Lew family listed below is mainly due to research done by Ron and Kay Campbell. Other researchers include Ken Lew, Bruce and Yvonne Lew. From London in the mid 18th century where James and James Charles Lew served in the Royal Navy the Lews moved through Yorkshire to Ireland and on to Bathurst in NSW. Some Lews still live in Bathurst but my branch moved to Wrightville (near Cobar NSW) by the end of the 19th Century and then to the North Shore of Sydney.
