John Lewis, yeoman, innholder, lieutenant, captain, and deacon, was born in England in 1631. … John Lewis was a lieutenant under Capt. Henchman in King Philip's War, and …was granted land at Souhegan West, now Amherst, N. H., for his services, which his grandson, Edmund, secured in 1728. … He was made a freeman, April 18,1691, and was then called "lieutenant." (N. E. Hist. Gen. Register, Vol.
5 [error for 3], p. 352.) He was elected a deacon in the church at a town meeting held January 8, 1692: "That Lieut. Lewis & Lieut. Fuller should sit at table." He kept a tavern in the eastern part of Saugus, known as the "Blue Anchor," probably being the successor of his father in law, Capt. Thomas Marshall, who died in 1683. This inn was later kept by his son Thomas and grandson John, and is mentioned by travellers of that day. … He died in 1710, at the age of 79 years.
