Information about Edmond's ancestry comes from "Edmund Lewis of Lynn and some of his desc" by George Harlan Lewis. The claim is made that Edmond Lewis was the son of George Lewis of Llystalybont, Glamorgan, Wales. There is no documentation to support this claim, nor to support the claim that Edmond Lewis married Mary Carey of Kings Lynn, Norfolk, England.

Appears on the Elizabeth passenger list as "Edmond Lewis" age 33, with Marry (32), John (3) and Thomas (3/4), traveling from Suffolk to Watertown. The Elizabeth left Ipswich on April 30, 1634. In Watertown, he served as selectman in 1636 and was granted 30 acres in the "Great Dividend" on 25 Jul 1636, as well as additional smaller plots in 1637 and 1638. He eventually held six Watertown parcels. He bought 10 acres in Hampton with Henry Dow in 1644, and he was still listed "of Watertown". That land was sold in 1649, when Edmond was "of Linn."
