Alfred Neville Lewis (1895, Cape Town, South Africa - 1972)

He was born in Cape Town, South Africa, and educated there and, later, at the Slade School of Art in London. His father was the Mayor of Cape Town, the Reverend A. J. S. Lewis, who on October 4,  1929 officially opened the Table Mountain Aerial Cableway.

Neville married Theo Townshend a fellow student from Ireland.  He became a member of the New English Art Club in 1920. When his marriage broke up in 1922, his two sons Tom and David went to Cape Town where they were raised by their grandparents and his daughter Catherine stayed with his ex wife.

He served in World War I in France, Belgium, and Italy.

When he married Vera Player in 1933, they bought a house in Chelsea and sent for his sons Tom and David, who rejoined them there. With Vera he had two children; Christopher and Annabel.

During World War II he carried on producing portraits in oil.  He frequently painted and drew black South Africans, something he shared as a passion with a female counterpart of the day, Helen Anne Petrie

He married Princess Rosa Cecilie Karoline-Methilde Irene Sibylla Anna zu Solms-Baruth on November 3, 1955 and settled in Rowan Street, Stellenbosch where their children Caroline and Frederick Henry Lewis attended school. Later the couple acquired a small holding opposite the Stellenbosch Golf Club where his wife and children could pursue their love of horseback riding.
