Notes for LEWIS GEORGE MASON:

1. 08/30/2001, Information from Barry Oliver (UK) indicates that, "we are almost certain that Thomas William was not the father of either Lewis or Bridget. The first child to be registered as OLIVER was Ada in 1880. We also cannot understand why Thomas & Martha did not get married until 1888. There was possibly a 'first wife of Thomas somewhere" (source, Joyce Head)

2. Lewis George Mason was an illegitimate son. Martha's husband THOMAS WILLIAM OLIVER accepted the child and brought him up as his own. Lewis changed his name to GEORGE OLIVER by deed poll before his marriage (source, Joyce Head).
