  • Notes 
    • " Name Henry Philip Lewis
      Sex M
      Birth ABT. 1760 in Cardiff, Wales
      Death 21 SEP 1849 in Point Edward, Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, Canada
      Burial St. John's Church at Point Edward
      FromTHE LEWIS FAMILIES OF CAPE BRETON by W. Ralph Lewis (1990)

      "Buried in the graveyard of St. John's Church at Point Edward but there are no markers"

      "The first Lewis to settle in Cape Breton was Henry Lewis, who arrived in 1811 at Coxheath (age 51). Information from the Public Archives of Nova Scotia states that three families, named Lewis, Boutilier and Andrews landed at Coxheath and formed the nucleus of a settlement there. Research has determined that Henry was born at Cardiff, Wales about 1760 and came to Norfolk, Virginia at an early age, with his widowed mother and a brother James, or John, who later died young.

      The records show that Henry Lewis signed into the British army of General Cornwallis, at Hillsborough, North Carolina, 24 February 1781, during the American Revolution. That army later surrendered and its members, including Private Henry Lewis were shipped off to New York as Prisoners of War. Most eventually left as loyalists for Canada.

      Henry was recorded as in a group which left on the ship "Nymph" and landed at Country Harbor, Nova Scotia, in December 1783. He left there in the Spring of 1784 and is next recorded as in St. Margaret's Bay, where he married Catherine Elizabeth Boutilier 16 October 1788. She was the daughter of Jacque Boutilier of Hugenot families who had come from France to Lunenburg, Nova Scotia in 1752.

      The descendants of Henry Lewis and Catherine have been quite accurately tracked via records in Cape Breton and the Archives at Halifax, up to the early 1900's. The origin of the Lewis family of Louisburg is well recorded from Henry and Catherine Lewis of Coxheath to the present day.

      Henry had received 200 acres of land at Balls Creek in 1812. (Cape Breton Land Papers #619 p. 160). In 1825 he petitioned and got title to 300 acres purchased from a Henry Adams at Coxheath, noting that the former land was unsuitable for farming. This area apparantly remained their home land for some time."
