On page 252, Lewis is categorized as:
Possible [that he is a Dunbar prisoner transported on the Unity]
Bane or Bean, Lewis. Residences: York ME. Appears: 1668. D.1677. Supposedly described by his son as “formerly of the Highlands”, but honorific Mr applied to him suggests higher status than the other Scots prisoners, so he may have been a later migrant. [Exiles; DR; Ch.8]
