I am a new member to the group. I have been researching my family
history for a while but have come to one dead end with one James Lyon
father of my 2G grandfather James Lyon who was born c 1825 in King
This latter James Lyon lived at Mains of Inverugie in ( at least )
the years 1860-64, with his wife Ann ( nee Thom ). There were two
sones - George Chalmers Lyon born 1849, and James Lyon ( my 1 G
Grandfather ) born 1851, also one daughter Ann b 1855 d 1860.
James Lyon had a first mariage to Elspet Walker by whom there was one
daughter Elisabeth Ann Lyon.
By the 1881 Census James and Ann Lyon were then living at Crimond
with a grandson William Lyon aged 11.
I can find no trace of William's parents.
If anyone can shed any light on the origins of James Lyon, father of
James Lyon born King Edward c 1825, or this William Lyon born c 1870
I would be most pleased to hear.
I have another Marthta Lyon who died at Mains of Inverugie in the
1870's but cannot make a connection between gher and my 2G
Grandfather's family. As ( I think ) there are only three dwellings
at Mains of Inverugie in this period I am confident there is a
connection here if only it can be found.
With thanks in anticipation.
