The unusual combination of "Lewellyn" and Lounsberry, brings to mind the family of:
R46. MARY FLEWWELLIN
Mary Flewwellin b. ca. 1789 ±5 yrs., m. Jesse Lounsberry. Their children were:
R461. ROBERT LOUNSBERRY
R462. JESSE LOUNSBERRY
R463. EZRA LOUNSBERRY
R464. SUSAN LOUNSBERRY
R465. MARY LOUNSBERRY
R466. JANE LOUNSBERRY m. WILLIAM BEATTYS
R467. PHOEBE LOUNSBERRY m. GILBERT TOMPKINS
R468. ELIZABETH LOUNSBERRY m. BENJAMIN CHASE
of Westchester Co., NY.
Flewwellin, Flewelling, Flewwelling, Flewellyn, Fluelling and Flewellin are all derivatives of Llewellyn; and, in New York State, associated with one family. Mary's father was:
R4. ROBERT FLEWWELLIN
Robert Flewwellin was the son of Robert and Maplet (Jeacockes?) Flewelling of North Castle, Westchester Co., NY. This was a Quaker branch of the family, which may explain some movements of the family in later years.
ROBERT FLEWELLIN b. ca. 3OCT1746, d. 5JUN1828, bur. Anawalk Cemetery, Yorktown, Westchester Co., NY, will made 4MAR1828 and probated 30JUN1828, m. MARY D. SEARLES (or SARLES) (b. ca. 8FEB1755, d. 3MAY1849, bur. Anawalk Cemetery, Yorktown, Westchester Co., NY), d/o John and Hannah (Ireland) Searles of Mount Pleasant.
He lived in Yorktown, Westchester Co., NY.
I have little about the Lounsberrys, beyond the above, my main interest being the Flewellings, but it is possibly that Lewellyn Lonsberry derives his name from this connection.
