Archive of Elizabeth, Lady Lewis, and the Lewis family
Papers of the Lewis family, 19th-20th cent., mainly letters to: Elizabeth, Lady Lewis (1844-1931), with a few to her husband Sir George Lewis, 1st Bart. (1833-1911); to one of their daughters, Katherine Elizabeth Lewis (d. 1961), with a few to their son Sir George Lewis, 2nd Bart. (1868-1927); and to their grand-daughter Elizabeth Lewis, later Wansbrough (d. 1995). Many of the letters are undated; some can be dated from the postmark on the envelope, but several letters were kept in the wrong envelopes; most of Paderewski's and Whistler's letters had become separated from their envelopes. Bequeathed by Elizabeth Wansbrough to Ampleforth Abbey; deposited by Ampleforth Abbey, 1996.
