#141 Pedigrees

The pedigree of Lewis of Harpton, on the other hand, is to be found in Dwnn's Visitations of Wales and elsewhere. Dwnn shows this Lewis descent as left-handed in the 15th century, though it should be borne in mind that in mediaeval Wales such irregularity would not be regarded with undue dismay; indeed if any dismay at all.
