In fact there was a large Ex-pat Malmesbury community (just do a search at the Necrology to see how many).<br /><br />Many of the Lewis family emigrated to Cleveland with one going on to Iowa but the rest stayed close to Cleveland. <br /><br />William Lewis is said on the burial records http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~ohcdrt/clecems/00dexfind.html<br />to have died of Cholera, so unlike so many of his nephews he didn&#39;t get into the oil business.<br /><br />Gardner is Market Gardener, growing food for people not crops for animals.

Go through most any thrift store or antique mall and you will very likely see art made with the best of intentions - some are very good copies of known works, and others not so good. At a time when people had no evening entertainments that we enjoy, and books were rare (and reading thought to be selfish and lazy by those who couldn&#39;t read and didn&#39;t want others around them reading as well), this types of homemade art flourished and were based on what people either had on the wall or had seen on a wall. <br /><br />My guess is that the top picture is based on the lower picture and done by someone who&#39;s talent had yet to fully blossom.

I&#39;m pretty sure that the date given in the catalog record from the American Antiquarian Society was based on the dates that the printer in question was active - but I&#39;ll check. <br /><br />The image from Howe&#39;s &quot;Historical Collections of Ohio&quot; wasn&#39;t included in the auction listing at the time I wrote the article. Looking at the original image, from the 1847/48 edition of Howe, it appears to be one of the many images that he copied after another source - the style appears inconsistent with his work. That&#39;s only to say that I&#39;m not entirely confident in it as an indicator of the late 1840s as a date.

My google looking at the wiki-referred book - did not reveal this page; I don&#39;t know what book it comes from. But the house to the left of the 4 story main building is different from the one in the Garth&#39;s Lot. It has a hip roof, for one.

These two images, so similar yet with significant differences, also open up the question of how trustworthy these types of documents are in faithfully recording the appearance of a building. <br /><br />In a restoration this could be crucial; let&#39;s say, for example, the one-window gable was correct. If only the other picture survived, they might destroy the original feature and &quot;restore&quot; the imaginary two-window version.
