Looking for Sophia Lewis’s family
« on: Tuesday 02 August 11 09:39 BST (UK) »
Sophia Lewis was born between 1834 - 1838 (according to 1881 and 1891 Census) in Clascoub, Radnorshire). 

She married William Phillips and had sons John born 1868 and William born 1870 and lived at Coedgwygan Hall, Llanbadarn Fawr (Crossgates), Radnorshire. 

Any help in finding any of the Lewis family would be greatly appreciated.

Thankyou
Radnor

I think perhaps Sophia was "economical" with the truth regarding her age?

1861 census has a 33 year old Sophia Lewis, born Glascomb, working as a House Keeper on a farm:

Reference RG09, Piece 4227, Folio 5, Page 3


Ideally, you need her marriage certificate, to confirm her father's name, but this is the only Sophia I can find in 1841, born in Radnorshire?

If that is her family, then they moved to Builth district in 1851:
