Richard Branson – no cigar


So close, yet no cigar.  I could be seeing about family discount on Virgin Air, but for this one glitch in the old pedigree chart.  Ancestry decided to attach George Lewis (1625-1710) as my 7th great grandfather, the father of Hannah Lewis (1662-1717).    Well, Hannah’s father was Thomas Lewis (1633-1709).  Now George may well have been Thomas’ brother and both could have been siblings of Richard’s ancestor, John Lewis (1637-1735).  Which would all tie to a MRCA, George Lewis (1600-1664).    But, that will take a bit of research and untangling.   So. no free air fare in the near future……
