I would like know if Alfred Lewis, proprietor of the Thomson & Lewis bottling factory has any relation to the TONKS family of Wellington. I was once told by a friend that her GGGrandfather and my GGGrandfather were brothers. She was from the Lewis side.

Question by Bethlene

My Great grandmother was Christabelle Maude Tonks through marriage, so my GGGrandfather would be her husbands father, who's name I am unsure of.
