Fielding Lewis (July 7, 1725 – December 7, 1781) was a Colonel during the American Revolutionary War and the brother-in-law of George Washington. A successful merchant in Fredericksburg, Virginia, he had a plantation, which later became known as Kenmore. Known for its Georgian mansion, it was designated as a National Historic Landmark in the twentieth century.

On page 95, Felder writes, "John Grymes served as co-executor of Henry Willis' will in 1740. The reason for the friendship between Grymes and the Willis brothers is not readily apparent. Colonel Francis Willis was married to Elizabeth Smith, Daughter of Major John Smith and Mary Warner. Mary Warner was the first cousin Alice Townley, John Grymes' mother. Colonel Henry Willis married second Mildred Lewis, his first cousin. Mildred and John Grymes were second cousins.

His son Fielding Lewis (1725-1781), who married George Washington’s sister Betty, ran this mercantile arm of the family’s extensive shipping operations. William S. Stone, William Taylor, and Robert Mackay, among others, were later merchants in this store. When the Fredericksburg Fire of 1807 damaged the original story and a half structure, it was repaired and a second floor was added. Besides being one of the oldest buildings in America and the oldest in Fredericksburg the Fielding Lewis store can also claim the George Washington shopped here. Currently this building is in the final stages of restoration by the Historic Fredericksburg Foundation.

In 1728, Fredericksburg was established on the banks of the Rappahannock River to serve as a port for Virginia's expanding western population. Fielding Lewis arrived from Gloucester County at a very young age to manage his father's store on the outskirts of Fredericksburg.

Her brother George Washington, the eldest son, serious and ambitious, quickly raced to manhood. As George grew in prominence, Fielding Lewis contined his close relationship with his brother-in-law.

When the War for Independence began, Fielding Lewis was unequalled among local leaders in his diligent and patriotic service. His valued relationship with General Washington undoubtedly deepend his commitment and spurred him to greater sacrifice.
