Lewis County is a county located in the U.S. state of New York. As of the 2010 census, the population was 27,087,[1] making it the fourth-least populous county in New York. Its county seat is Lowville.[2] The county is named after Morgan Lewis, the Governor of New York when the county was established.[3] The area now occupied by Lewis County was very sparsely occupied until the end of the 18th century. Although the land was already claimed by the Province of New York in its original grant, the land was clearly part of the territory of the Iroquois confederacy until after the American Revolutionary War, when New York seized the lands from tribes that had supported the British. The lands were unsurveyed and remained unattractive to settlement until after the complex process of Macomb's Purchase of 1791 eventually put much of the land in the hands of John Brown.
