One of Tolroy’s Jamaican relatives, and Agnes’s husband. Like Tanty, Lewis arrives in London unannounced, having accompanied Tolroy’s mother. One time during a nightshift, he asks Moses if it’s true that women sleep with other men while their husbands are working at night. Because Lewis asks so many stupid questions, Moses decides to have a little fun with him by lying and saying that this is indeed a regular occurrence. A gullible man with a history of having been cheated on, Lewis is immediately perturbed, rushing to the boss and insisting that he must go home because he doesn’t feel well. When he arrives, he finds that Agnes is alone, but he beats her anyway, accusing her of infidelity. Because his suspicions continue, he goes on abusing Agnes on a regular basis until, finally, she leaves him for good and presses charges against him, though nothing ever comes of the lawsuit. Although at first Lewis is distraught to have lost his wife, he quickly moves on by starting a romantic relationship with another woman.
