|Birth: ||May 5, 1695|
New Kent County
|Death: ||Aug., 1779|
David Lewis was christened the 5th of May 1695 to John Lewis in St Peter's Parish, New Kent (Later Hanover), Virginia. There is also a Christ Church Parish record for christenings of David and his brother Abraham 1698.
Descendants of David Lewis' have tested their y-DNA for genealogy and David's father and relations are, as yet, unknown. Descendants of John Lewis of Warner Hall have also tested their y-DNA for genealogy. Comparing the DNA of descendants of both John Lewis of Warner Hall and David Lewis of Hanover and Charlotsville, the results are conclusive, David Lewis is NOT related to The Lewises of Warner Hall.
David married first Ann Betty Terrell in possibly New Kent (later Hanover) in about 1717 and they had eight children. Betty died before 1834 in probably Hanover, Virginia.
David's will was written 21 Oct 1778 and was proved in Albemarle Court 1779. Albemarle Co., VA, Will Bk 2:381-2. It is not known if David was buried on his original home place which possibly what is now Birdwood Golf Course, part of the University of Virginia, or if the Jesse Pittman Lewis Cemetery was already in use. Both son Jesse's home and son John's home nearer Charlottesville center had been built before David died. But David was not feeble when he passed, the family story says that David was about to marry for the 4th time when he died, so it might be thought he is buried on his home place by the spring, near the Birdwood golf course club house just beyond the putting green.
