    In 1750 Lewis was listed on the tax list, along with his brother Jason Jr., under their father Jason, implying that they were all living in the same household, and that Lewis and Jason Jr. were between the ages of 16 and 21 (implying birth dates of 1729-1734). Lewis also appears on the 1752 list under his own name. Several members of the Mobberley family appear on the same lists. The Meadows families are not present in 1749.
