Having looked on Ancestry there are a few Dewis tree records. I cannot open them as I do not have a subscription but looking at the names there does not appear to be any record earlier than Thomas Dewis b 1801.
It must be an onerous task to search through every record contained in every London parish records even if you live or can travel to London. How do professional FH researchers do it?
Dewis - London
Garmonsway - London
Craze - Dunster
Francis - Hilperton
Llewellyn - Cardiff & Pembroke

Any further suggestions would be much appreciated before I put this issue to one side for a while as probably a trip to the London records office is needed or a professional researcher who will know where to search?
Thanks for all your help, you are all generous with your knowledge and time
