Re: ORIGIN OF ENGLISH "DEWIS"

According to the Huguenot Society the Dewis name is possibly Walloon (Flemish) from Flanders which straddled France and Belgium. Other spellings for the name are Dewise/Dewys/Dewyse/Dewise.

So perhaps Dewees has no connection. I am researching the Dewis's of London (east end.) These were the centres of the Huguenot weaving trade
