Re: [Peterhead] James Lyon / William Lyon
- Hi Richard,
My GGG grandmother is Ann Thom, born abt 1810, died Sep 02, 1886 St. Fergus. She was the daughter of James Thom and Isabella Chalmers.
Ann had a child, Andrew Knox (GG Grandfather) who was born Mar. 29, 1835, Longside. His father was Andrew Knox b. ? d. bef 1857 (year Andrew married my GG grandmother, Mary Reid. Andrew's birth registration showed:
Andrew, natural son of Andrew Knox in Rora and Anne Thom in Lonmay. I don't believe Ann Thom and Andrew Knox married.
I was aware that Ann had married James Lyon but have been unable to locate more information on his ancestors or of grandson William Lyon age 11 shown on the 1881 Census. If I am able to locate any further information I will let you know and would appreciate the same from you.

Subject: [Peterhead] James Lyon / William Lyon
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.
