Text source

Richard Lewis was Honourable Administrator of the Royal Treasury and Governor of Marienburg. Fischer footnotes his entry by suggesting that Lewis is possibly from the family of Lewis of Manor (Peebleshire), family members of which are known to have emmigrated to Poland and Russia in the 17th century. Lewis married in 1640 in Danzig, but it is not known who to.
