Lewy Early Origins



The surname Lewy was first found in Lorraine, where the family has been a prominent family for centuries, and held a family seat with lands and manor. The family were well established in the region of Nancy and several members of the family distinguished themselves through their contributions toward the community in which they lived and were rewarded with lands, titles and letters patent confirming their nobility. They held estates in both Lorraine and Brittany but the earliest records are in Lorraine. They were nobility in Lorraine from 1578 to 1724.
