THE LYON MEMORIAL 

Publisher's Note 



Three years ago the first prospectus appeared of a "Lyon Memorial." 
The object sought by its editors was a modest one. They proposed only 
to place on record the available historical data relating to the several 
Lyon families that settled in New England in the early colonial 
days. It was expected that the material thus "readily accessible" 
would fill a volume of about 500 pages. It was soon found, however, 
that a single volume would not contain the records already in hand. 
The complete Memorial fills three such volumes. One, relating to 
the Massachusetts families, has already been given to the public. 
This includes the descendants of William Lyon of Roxbury, about 
3,000 names, Peter Lyon of Dorchester, about 400 names and George 
Lyon of Dorchester, 135 names. 

The present volume deals with three closely related families, 
whose progenitors, Thomas, Henry and Richard, appeared almost 
simultaneously in Fairfield County, Connecticut. The editor of this 
volume accepts as historical facts certain family traditions for which 
documentary evidence has not yet been found. For this she assumes 
individual responsibility. "Whether or not these three brothers came 
to America directly from Scotland, is not "a vital question. There 
can be no doubt that they, as well as the Lyons who settled in 
Massachusetts had a common ancestry with the Scotch noble Lyon 
family — now Bowes-Lyon. The volume will perhaps prove the most 
interesting reading of the series, and is of especial importance in 
that it deals in a thorough and painstaking way with an historical 
subject presenting unusual difficulties, owing to the destruction during 
the Revolutionary War of many important records. It comprises the 
full family histories only of Henry Lyon of Milford, Fairfield and 
Newark, and Richard Lyon of Fairfield. 



6 LYON MEMORIAL 

The third volume of the series is devoted wholly to the family 
history of Thomas Lyon of Stamford, Fairfield and Rye. This history 
is unusually full, and is largely the work of Robert B. Miller, a 
descendant of Thomas Lyon, and an accomplished and accurate 
genealogist. 

The writer of this note, who, in the midst of a life of strenuous 
and multifarious activities, has brought to a conclusion his self 
imposed task commends the completed Memorial to his numerous 
American kinsfolk in the trust that his gratuitous labor may find its 
adequate reward in the kindly welcome it shall receive.

PREFACE 



To the descendants of Henry, Thomas and Richard Lyon, notwith- 
standing its imperfections, the second volume of the Lyon Memorial will 
be "a good book which is opened with expectation and closed with 
profit." Nevertheless they should determine among themselves to 
gather materials for a more satisfactory history of the Scotch branch 
of the Lyon family of America. In the States that were the old 
Colonies, in Scotland and in England, there are public records and 
private papers awaiting whoever will interest himself or herself so 
far as to seek these data in person or employ experienced genealogists 
to do the necessary work for them. 

Another thing. Doubt should not reject in toto the vague stories 
of forefather lore. Life was more serious than death to our 
Covenanter and Puritan sires. They were not given to vain-glorious 
statements. Whatsoever is attributed to one of them is worthy of 
investigation. Oraf cestimony, after two centuries of reminiscential 
mention, has lost accuracy. Still there is a likelihood of discovering 
documental foundations for many of these handed-down recollections. 
Errors may have been grafted on the vine of any tradition, but it 
sprang from the root of truth. What Moses related to Joshua, what 
Joshua transmitted through the Elders and the Prophets is Holy writ. 

"Some Old World Lyons" and "Some New World Lyons" give the 
history of the Lyon family as far as it could be gathered from acces- 
sible records and as far as it has been narrated incidentally by the 
historians. An amplification of a series of events is history as it is 
written and understood. Bare facts with appurtenant dates do not 
appeal to the human mind. Out of countless fragments the imagina- 
tion must reconstruct and visualize the past. This has been attempted 
by the author of the two sketches herein referred to. The "Lyons 
Farms" sketch and map, contributed by Professor S. R. Winans of

Princeton, N. J., will add greatly to the historical value of the present 
volume of the Lyon Memorial. 

An especial acknowledgement is due Mr. C. C. Gardner, genealogist, 
of Newark, N. J., and to Mrs. Mary Lyon Hoe and Miss Amelia Lyon 
Hoe of New York City, for procuring copies of many of the colonial 
records in the archives at Trenton. Mr. Gardner, too, loaned private 
papers, and his acute judgment settled several points that were in 
dispute. Mr. W. E. Harrison of Fort Madison, Iowa, generously con- 
tributed all the Lyon data that he obtained at home and abroad, while 
collecting official records for a Harrison Family History. Mr. John 
Charles Lyon of East Orange, N. J., and Mrs. Nora Harris Badgley of 
New York City were indispensible co-workers, who made extracts from 
the Colonial history "authorities" in the Newark Library and in the 
Lenox Library and the Astor Library of New York City. And thanks 
are due to Mr. M. M. Crane of Elizabeth, N. J., for early Elizabeth- 
town records, to Mr. C. S. Taylor of Cincinnati for pioneer records; 
to Miss Anna J. Cleveland of Minneapolis for foreign research and 
early Elizabethtown records; to Mr. J. P. Crayon, genealogist, of 
Rockaway, N. J., for early Morristown records; to Miss Hannah Lyon 
Wilbur of Newport, who placed the Rhode Island Lyon families among 
the descendants of Henry Lyon, the emigrant of Fairfield and Newark, 
and to Mrs. Laura Butler Taylor of Louisville, Ky., for her intelligent 
and faithful services.

SOME OLD WORLD LYONS 



If faith is the evidence of things not seen, history is the evidence 
of things half linown. The contemporary chronicler depended on 
hearsay particulars and individual impressions for the consecutive 
incidents in the romance of quaint narration. He recounted the pomp 
and triumph of his liege as a bard sang of the prowess of his own 
Lord, as a Provincal poet sang of the beauty of his own lady. But 
he was on his own ground and familiar with current matters. The 
historian takes the say-so of his predecessors in compiling remote 
events, gleaning from every accessible source, however, making 
deductions here and trusting to psychological instinct there, seeking 
for the spirit as well as the letter of the times. The public records, 
with their contradictory dates can be partially trusted, though one 
remembers how Dugdale of the Baronage declared in 1675, referring 
to the Roll of Battle Abbey — "There are great errors or rather falsities 
in most of these copies — such hath been the subtile of some monks 
of old." 

The history of a family, especially of the Lyon family, as it goea 
from the chapter of one century to the chapter of the next, in its 
mysterious reality, has the fascination of fiction. Heredity gives every 
human a certain sense of remoteness, which is soul retrospection. We, 
ourselves, have been a part of all this tragedy and death. 

Godfrey Louvein or Lowen, Duke of Brabant, was doubtless the 
head of the Leonne family of Leon, or Lyons in Normandy. His 
daughter, Adelecia, the Fair Maid of Brabant, after the young Prince 
William was lost in the wreck of the "Blanche Nef" 1120, was married 
to the widowed Henry I. in the hope of another direct heir to the 
English Crown. This alliance gave rise to the use of the lion in the 
royal arms. The Castle of Lyons near Rouen was a residence which 
the Anglo-Norman monarch took much delight in. It was his death- 
place, too. After a hard day's hunting in the Forest of Lyons, the King 
ate heartily of his favorite dish, stewed lampreys, and died of "surfeit" 
seven days later. At the time of the expedition against Harold, the 
Saxon King of England, 1066, one of the Leonne, an adventurous 
personage, with his followers, joined the banners of Duke William of 
Normandy. This de Leonne, the progenitor of the Lyon family of 
England and Scotland, held a considerable command in the invading 



10 LYON MEMORIAL 

army. Perhaps he espoused the cause through Galtic sentiment, or 
through Fitz Osborn's coercive example or through a liking for 
fighting as a diurnal occupation, or for what he expected to get out 
of it. An eye to the main chance through an aboriginal understanding 
of meum et tuum, was eleventh century common sense, and to take 
your chances was eleventh century philosphy. 

The foreign project was not a popular measure with Duke 
William's people, as it would cost blood and money. But the chivalry 
of France, picturesque gentlemen, armed cap-a-pie in close-fitting ring 
armor and nasal conical helmets, with a gonfalon streaming from their 
lances, who made war a diversion, accommodatingly accepted the story 
that Harold had been sent by Edward the Confessor to give the 
Crown to his verbally appointed heir. By the same right that Robert 
le Diahle's son was heir to the throne of the Saxon Usurper, they, his 
knights, were heirs to splendid preferment and splendid spoils, if they 
risked their lives to get them. Morally justified, they were going 
to their rightful heritage, these mail-clad warriors of William, sur- 
named the Bastordes, the best soldier and the best politician of the 
Middle Ages. Edward, the Saint, had loved the home of his childhood, 
the learned and pious prelates and monks of its churches and monas- 
teries, and its shrewd and daring Knighthood. It was theirs by royal 
gift. All the crown lands, the vast estates of Harold and his brothers, 
the folkland, every rod of England, except the sacred property of the 
Ecclesiastical corporations, would pass to the new king, to be granted 
away to those who served him best. 

The Leonne of the armament, who followed the blood-red flag 
of the Mora from St. Valleri to Pevensly; who sang the war song of 
Rollo at Hastings and did much battle, realized his opulent anticipa- 
tions, for he remained in England, and brought over to patrimonial 
expectation his son, Sir Roger de Leonne, born in France 1040, 

Sir Roger de Leonne furthered the fortunes of the family in an 
adopted country. War was a profitable pastime, and to go to the 
rescue of King Edgar, the son of Malcolm Canmore, a righteous piece 
of errantry. So he donned his harness and rode with Atheling into 
Scotland to depose Donald Bain. For this good and faithful service, 
in 1091 he obtained from King Edgar certain lands in Perthshire, to 
which he gave the name of Glen Lyon — the Glen Lyon of today, extend- 
ing from Fortingal about twenty-four miles, a vast cul-de-sac, flanked 
by steep lofty mountains traversed from end to end by the river Lyon,

rushing down in torrents and cataracts from Loch Lyon. It is a 
strong defensible pass like Killikrankie, Glenlochy and Glenogle. 

The Romans built a camp at its entrance, such a station as com- 
manded the passes of the Grampians throughout Perthshire. It was 
a stronghold of the aboriginal tribe of Venricones, who possessed 
territory between the Tay on the South and the Carron on the North, 
comprising Gowrie, Strathmore, Stromont and Strathardle in Perth- 
shire, the whole of Angus and the larger part of Kincardineshire, with 
their chief town at Orrea on the Tay. 

Sir Roger de Leonne stood by his Scottish possessions, and retained 
the friendship of the Scottish Monarch, for he was witness in a 
charter of King Edgar to the monastery of Dumfermline, dated 1105. 
His son, Sir Paganus de Leonne or Leonibus, was born in England 
about 1080. For his soul's health, and the highest christian duty, this 
Norman Englishman accompanied Geoffrey Plantagenet, Duke of 
Anjou to the Holy Land. On his return from the Crusade, he settled in 
England, where he did some fighting for Henry I. in the family difficulty 
with Duke Robert of Normandy, and in the campaign against the 
Welsh. He claimed lineage from the ancient Kings of Leone as 23rd 
in descent from King Ataulphus, the Visgoth, successor of Alaric, who 
took and sacked Rome in 409 — Ataulphus, who married Placida, sister 
of Honorius, Emperor of the East, the son of the great Theodorius. 

His son, Hugo de Leonibus, born about 1120, was seized of lands 
In the county of Norfolk, England, in the time of Henry II., and he 
was defendant m a plea of lands in the time of Richard Coeur de 
Lion, 1149. 

Ernald de Leonibus, born in Norfolk, about 1150, son of Hugo 
de Leonibus, claimed against Robert Briston, William de Grancut and 
Walter de Grancut, one third part in certain lands in Kettleston in the 
county of Norfolk in the time of King John I. 1199. When the con- 
queror stumbled headlong upon Sussex soil, grasping the sand he 
gathered as he fell, he exclaimed, with prophetic joy, "See Seigneurs! 
by the splendor of God I have seized England in my two hands." The 
same land greed was a passion with his knights, and it besets their 
descendants even to this day. 

The heir of Ernald de Leonibus, was John de Leonibus, alias 
Lyon, born about 1175, the first instance of our name being ortho- 
graphically simplified as it has come down to us. He had two sons, 
Pagan de Leonibus, alias Leon, born in Norfolk about 1200, and Walter 
de Leonibus, born about 1205. Walter de Leonibus had two sons, — 



12 LYON MEMORIAL 

Sir Henry Lyon and William de Lyon; both died without issue. Pagan 
de Leonibus, of Norfolk, England, married Ivette de Ferres, daughter 
and heiress of William de Ferres of Cambridge. His two sons were 
Sir John de Lyouns, Knight, born in Norfolk about 1225, and Thomas 
Lyouns, who was of Woodward in Essex in the time of Edward I. 

Sir John de Lyouns, first son of Pagan de Leonibus, was sum- 
moned to perform military service against the Scots 1294, when 
Edward subdued Scotland and imprisoned King John Baliol. He 
married Marjory, daughter and co-heir of Simon de Ackle of Ackle in 
the county of Northampton, and died 1316 in the reign of Edward II. 
Some of his descendants received the estate of Simon de Ackle, 
for in 1638 from Northamptonshire came John Lyne and Henry Lyne, 
his son, to America, and they were among the founders of New Haven. 

The sons of Sir John de Lyouns were John de Lyon, Feudal Baron 
of Forteviot, born in Norfolk, England about 1250, and Sir Adam Lyon, 
Knight, born about 1255, and died without issue. 

Perthshire was included in the kingdom of the Southern Picts. 
Their capital was removed to Forteviot from Abernathy. Later, when 
Forteviot was burnt by the Northmen, the chief royal residence was 
at Scone. Perth was the third seat of Government, but was abandoned 
in the reign of James II. in favor of Edinburgh. 

John de Lyon, Feudal Baron of Forteviot, first son of Sir John 
de Lyons of Norfolk, England, had three sons*: 1. Sir Adam Lyon, 
Knight, born in Norfolk about 1285, who had two sons, Sir John Lyon, 
Knight, born about 1320, and Adam de Lyon, born about 1325. 2. 
Richard Lyon, born in Norfolk about 1287, who had three daughters, 
co-heirs, Isabella, born 1336, Cecilia born 1338 and Christina born 
1345. 3. Sir John de Lyon, Knight, born in Norfolk, England, about 
1290, who had a son. Sir John Lyon, who became the head of the Lyon 
family of Scotland. 

The district of Glen Lyon in Perthshire had been in the possession 
of the Lyon family since 1091. 

Malcolm Canmore, in being educated at the Court of Edward, the 
Confessor, was strongly pro-Norman, and his son King Edgar I. owed 
his throne to such valiant men as Sir Roger de Leonne. In the days 
of David I. other Anglo-Normans and Flemings settled in Scotland. 
David had been trained in the Court of his brother-in-law, Henry I. 
"that he might be polished from the rust of Scottish barbarity." He

married Maude, daughter of Walthe, Earl of Northumberland, by- 
Judith, niece of William the Conqueror. When he came to his throne 
1124, he was followed by a thousand Anglo-Normans and Flemings, 
upon whom he bestowed favors and lands, and most of the illustrious 
families of Scotland have their origin from the French Englishmen 
favorites of Edgar I. and David I., descendants of the Norman Knights 
who came to England at the time of the Conquest. The life appealed 
to a mediaeval imagination, where every district was an independent 
state, with its own system of government, a sort of hereditary dukedom, 
allowed by the consent of each community, or clan, in the person of 
their chief. It was a stirring dramatic existence. Year in and year 
out predatory warfare and clan warfare were matters of gain and 
matters of strife. The strange garb of the Highland people, their 
weapons, their wild music, the power of the headship, and the fealty 
of the clansmen was a fascinating ensemble. Every clan had its 
place of rendezvous, and every clansman answered in person the 
summons of his chief. The "tarie," the fiery cross, two pieces of wood, 
one end of the horizontal burnt^ and a bit of white cloth stained with 
blood, tied to the other, was given to two runners who sped in opposite 
directions, to deliver the "tarie" in turn to fresh runners. In 1215 
the bearers of the fiery cross went round Loch Tay, a distance of 
thirty-five miles, and that same evening, five hundred men assembled 
under command of the Laird of Glen Lyon, to join the Earl of Mar. 

The Lyons of Glen Lyon remained in high favor with the Scotch 
Court, for in 1372, a hundred and eighty years after the advent of 
Sir Roger de Leonne in Scotland, one of his descendants, John Lyon, 
a grandson of John de Lyon, Feudal Baron of Forteviot, was son-in- 
law and Secretary of King Robert II, the first Stewart, and the 
founder of that dynasty. "He was a young man of very good parts 
and qualities, a very graceful and comely person, and a great favorite 
with the King." Lyon King-at-Arms, who was a conspicuous figure 
at the coronation, 1371, must have been this John Lyon, pattern of 
superior excellences. When this dignity was constituted is lost from 
Court Annals. That the heraldic office was instituted as a preferment 
for a favorite courtier is more probable than that it took its name Lyon 
rex armorum, from the lion on the royal shield. The Princess Jean, 
youngest daughter of Robert II. fell in love with the handsome, suc- 
cessful John Lyon, and in 1379, he received her hand in marriage. 

After the death of her first husband, she consoled herself with a 
second husband. Sir James Sunderlands of Calder. She was a daughter 



14 LYON MEMORIAL 

by the first wife of Robert High Stewart of Scotland, Elizabeth 
daughter of Sir Adam More of Powallen. A question as to the legiti- 
macy of this lady, made a public declaration necessary at the accession 
of Robert II. and the crown was settled on John, Earl of Garrick. Two 
years later a more explicit settlement was made on the King's sons 
by Elizabeth More, — John, Earl of Garrick, Robert, Earl of Fife, and 
Alexander, Lord Badenoch; falling them, on the sons of the second 
wife, Euphemie Ross, — David, Earl of Strathearn, and Walter, his 
brother. 

John Lyon, by his marriage with the lady Jean Stewart, was 
brought into the reigning family. Wise in world-craft, he had nicely 
dominated the King whom Froissart represents as "not valiant, with 
red, bleared eyes, who would rather lie still than ride," for by a 
charter dated March 13th, 1372, he received the lands and Thanedom 
of Glamis, a charter which says: "pro laudabili et fideli servitio con- 
tinuis laborius." 

The title of Thane of Glamis is an old one. Malcolm II. (1005- 
1034) had two daughters. One of them married Crymin, Lord of the 
Isles and of Western Scotland, and was the mother of King Duncan, 
the successor of her royal father. The second daughter married Sinel, 
Thane of Glamis, and was the mother of Macbeth, also the mother-in- 
law of that psychological mystery. Lady Macbeth. Glamis Castle, until 
it passed to John Lyon (on his marriage to the Princess Jean) had 
been a royal residence for a line of Kings that date back to Kenneth I. 
850, A. D. 

This hoary pile, historically famous, stands in the fertile vale 
of Strathmore, in Forfarshire, not far from Dundee, with the Sedlaw 
Hills to the South, and the lofty Grampians to the North. The glamour 
of feudal times is all round about it, from its base to the summit of 
its towers that rise a hundred and fifteen feet above the ground, and 
the great dead dwell there in invisible life through the remembrance 
of their deeds. It is claimed that the huge blocks of red sandstone 
of the earliest portion of the structure have been standing since 1016, 
the eleventh year of the reign of Malcolm II., father-in-law of Sinel, 
Thane of Glamis. Patrick Lyon, first earl of Strathmore* and third of 
Kinghorn, made extensive restoration and improvement about 1605. 

Sir Walter Scott lamented over the disappearance of the walled 
eourt yards, and the moat, the defensive boundaries of the huge old 



♦Glamis Castle, a residence of the present Earl of Strathmore and 
Kinghorn. 



SOME OLD WORLD LYONS 15 

Tower of Glamis, when he revisited the Castle after the devastation 
of a ruthless, capricious architect. Within the storied walls King 
Duncan was done to death by his ambitious cousin-german, Macbeth. 
It was the death-place of Malcolm II. from the wounds treacherously 
given by Kenneth V. an event of blood made authentic by the early 
chroniclers. The Commonwealth soldiers prayed long prayers and 
sang loud psalms in that house of murder, and the Pretender pined 
and plotted there for a brief season. 

Gossip has spread a tale of a mysterious grisly something, a secret 
not a substance, that is master of the Earl. When his eldest son 
becomes of age, this ghost of a wrong that must be righted is disclosed 
to still another Lyon, and the thing dogs him till the hour of his 
death, making him of the past and guilty of a crime that calls for 
reparation. This gives a White-Lady-Banshee sort of mystery to the 
awesome old castle. 

Besides the lands and Thanedom of Glamis, the King bestowed 
upon his son-in-law, John Lyon, the Loch of Forfar, and the land of 
Kinghorn, and through his marriage came the right to carry the double 
tressure fleuried and counter-fleuried in the bearing of the family*. He 
rose to be High Lord Chamberlain of Scotland and Ambassador to 
England. This increasing power excited the envy of Sir James Lind- 
Bay, and he fell in a duel provoked by this Judas friend at the Moor of 
Balhall in 1383. He and his royal consort were interred at Scone, the 
coronation place of the Kings of Scotland, destroyed during the 
Reformation. There still exists an indenture, dated 1433, between his 
son, John Lyon, Knight of Glamys, and the Abbot of Scone, confirming 
a grant of forty shillings annually made by his late father for masses 
for the repose of the souls of Sir John Lyon and Lady Jean, his 
spouse. 

Sir John Lyon, Knight of Glamys, who fifty years after the death 
of his father still continued the pious custom of paying for masses 
for the souls of his illustrious parents, married the Lady Elizabeth 
Graham, daughter of Patrick, Earl of Strathern, by Euphemia, Countess 
Palatine of Strathern, a granddaughter of Robert II. His young man- 
hood was spent in tumultuous times. Disorders were rife in the 
Highlands, and the feuds of the clans were augmented by Alexander

Badenoch, the fourth son of Robert II., whom his indolent father had 
constituted Lieutenant Governor, from the limits of Moray to Pentland 
Frith. The Wolf of Badenoch was the uncle of Sir John Lyon, Knight 
Lord of Glamys. He seized the lands of Alexander Bard, Bishop of 
Moray, and was excommunicated for this outrage. 

In a frenzy of vengeance, he descended from the heights and burnt 
Forres, May, 1390, with the church and the Manse of the Archdeacons, 
and in June of the same year he burnt Elgin, the church of St. Giles, 
the hospital of Maison Dieu, the Cathedral, a splendid ecclesiastical 
pile, and the houses of the canons and chaplains in the College of Elgin, 
plundered the churches and carried off the sacred utensils and 
vestments. For this sacrilege against a See of Rome, the Lord of 
Badenoch was compelled to make full reparation, and was then absolved 
by Walter Trail, Bishop of St. Andrews, in the church of the Black 
Friars in Perth, in the presence of his brother. King Robert III. and 
the nobility of Scotland. 

Sir John Lyon, Knight of Glamys, was succeeded by his son, Sir 
Patrick Lyon.* He, too, saw turmoil and tragedy. On March 28th, 
1424, he was delivered up to the English as one of the hostages for the 
ransom of James I. and not released till June, 1427. Doubtless 
he loved the monarch of advanced ideas and elegant accomplishments, 
and the horror of the midnight regicide in the Monastery of the 
Dominicans at Perth came to him as the blackest deed in his country's 
sombre chronicles. But Patrick Lyon had sustaining ambitions, for 
this feudal chief was made a peer of Parliament as Lord Glamis in 
1445, the eighth year of the reign of James II. and was appointed 
Master of the King's household in 1452. He married Isabel, daughter 
of Alexander Ogilvy, and had three sons and a daughter, — Alexander, 
2nd Lord Glamis, John, 3rd Lord, William Lyon, Master of the Lyons 
of Easter Ogil of County Forfar, and Elizabeth, who married Alexander 
Robertson. Patrick Lyon first Lord Glamis, grandson of Sir John 
Lyon and the Princess Jean, died 1459. 

His eldest son, Alexander Lyon, had died without issue, and the 
Barony devolved upon the second son, John Lyon, 3rd Lord Glamis, 
who was Privy Councillor to James IV, and Justice General of Scotland. 
He married Elizabeth daughter of Sir John Scrimguor of Dunlope, 
Constable of Dundee, and died 1494, and was succeeded by his son 
John Lyon, fourth Lord Glamis, who was succeeded twelve years later 
by his eldest son by Emily, daughter of Lord Gray, George Lyon, fifth 

*Burke's Peerage. 



SOME OLD WORLD LYONS 17 

Lord Glamis. He died unmarried, and the title passed to his bi'other 
John Lyon, sixth Lord Glamis. 

John Lyon, third Lord Glamis, John Lyon, fourth Lord Glamis, 
George Lyon, fifth Lord Glamis; and John Lyon, sixth Lord Glamis, 
lived in the reign of James IV., a reign of twenty-five years. Battle, 
murder and execution are absent from the annals of the Monarch who 
loved chivalrous display, tournaments and martial exercise. A season 
of peace blessed the land that had been harrowed for ages by private 
wars and civil wars. 

The Ceurt was merry, but far from moral. Leniency was for 
one and all. Gifts and favors made loyal subjects, and the chiefs of 
the Highlands shared the largess with the barons. The two raids 
across the border in behalf of the impostor, Perkin Warbeck, were 
mere incidents of Arms, and there was not a real cloud of threatening 
on the political horizon of Scotland till after the marriage of James 
IV. and Margaret Tudor in 1502. The death of Henry VII. changed the 
friendly relations between England and Scotland. 

Henry VIII. did not like the marriage of his young sister, and 
refused to deliver a legacy of jewels left to the Queen by her royal 
father. Mutual privateering and border fray increased the bad feeling, 
and the continental policy of Henry in regard to the struggle in Italy 
between Louis XII. and Pope Julian I. easily provoked a war. James 
renewed his alliance with the King of France 1513. The herald who 
brought the declaration was the Scotch Lord Lyon, another Lyon 
King-at-Arms or Lion-King-at-Arms one of the Perthshire courtiers, or 
an Earl Marschal, keeper of the heraldic beasts of the royal shield. 
The largest army ever raised in Scotland met the English at Flodden 
Field. Among the 12,000 dead in that "no quarter" massacre was the 
King; the nobility was almost decimated, and many families lost all 
their sons. The mortality was terrible in an age when the Temple 
of Janus was always open. Dugdale of the "Baronage" says: "For 
of no less than 270 families touching which this first volume doth 
take notice, there will hardly be found above eight which do to this 
continue, and of those not anj' whose estates — compared with what 
their ancestors enjoyed — are not a little diminished, — nor of that num- 
ber — I mean 270 — above twenty-four who are by any younger male 
branch descended from them, for aught I can discover."- 

Of the gentry of Berkshire he continued, "It is remarkable that 
there is not one family descended in the male line from any of the 
gentry ennumerated in the above list, now left in the country." The 



18 LYON MEMORIAL 

males of either kingdom were born to be battle-slauglitered. The 
mothers spared the grief of losing all their sons were fevv'. 

John Lyon, sixth Lord Glamis, was not among the slain at Flodden, 
but lived to fight another day. He married Janet Douglas, a woman 
of rare beauty, daughter of George, Master of Angus, and grand- 
daughter of the great Earl of Angus (Bell-the-Cat), and had a son, 
John Lyon, seventh Lord Glamis. In the struggle between Angus 
and Arran in the rising of the Highlands to uphold the claim of 
Macdonald to the Lordship of the Isles, Glamis supported Angus" in 
the hostilities that went on for several years, till it ended in a fight 
in the streets of Edinburgh, where the victorious Angus drove Arran 
out of the town and seized the castle. In 1525 Angus, with Beaton, 
obtained possession of the person of the boy King James V. to govern 
in his name in a regency that lasted till 1528, the year of the death 
of John Lyon, sixth Lord Glamis. 

His widow, the beautiful Janet Douglas, took as her second hus- 
band, Archibald Campbell of Kepneith. Another Campbell fell in 
love with his kinsman's fair wife, and to revenge a repulse, gave in- 
formation to the authorities that she and her husband, her young son 
John Lyon, seventh Lord Glamis, John Lyon a relative, and an old 
priest were conspiring against the life of the King by poison and 
witchcraft. They were tried for high treason and condemned on the 
evidence of a perjurer, and sentenced to be burned at the stake. 
Campbell attempted to escape, but was dashed to pieces on the rocks 
below the window of his prison. But Lady Glamas died publicly by 
fire on the Castle Hill of Edinburgh, July 12th, 1537. Owing to his 
tender years, John Lyon, seventh Lord Glamis, was spared the horrible 
fate of his unfortunate mother, notwithstanding he had been convicted 
of treason, July 10th, 1537, of being "art and part of concealing and 
not revealing of the conspiring and imagination in the destruction of 
King James V. by poison, imagined and conspired by Janet, Lady 
Glamis, his mother, to which he consented and was art and part with 
her." He was returned to prison, and the sentence suspended till he 
should come of age. 

The accuser of Glamis and his mother, on his death-bed, a prey 
to remorse (some authorities say "one Lyon") avowed his crime of 
swearing away the life of Lady Glam.is and her son. The young 
Lord Glamis was given his freedom, and being a minor was placed 
under the care of his uncle Alexander Lyon. His estates were for- 
feited to the Crown by an act of Parliament, December 3rd, 1540. In 



SOME OLD WORLD LYONS 19 

January, 1542-3, he instituted a summons of redemption of forfeiture 
and was rescinded. The following March he was restored to his 
estates and honors by Parliament. He came into favor after the heart 
of James V. was broken by the treacherous desertion of the nobles. 

During the regency of Arran and Mary of Guise, when the "orphan 
lass," Mary Stuart, was Queen of Scotland, he had charters for various 
lands in Aberdeenshire in 1543-4, and of the Barony of Kinghorne for- 
feited by James Kirkaldy of Grange 1548. His death occurred in 1558, 
twenty-one years after the terrible death of his innocent mother. 

John Lyon, seventh Lord Glamis, married Janet Keith, sister of 
William, fourth Earl of Marishal, and had two sons, John Lyon, 
eighth Lord Glamis, and Hon. Sir Thomas Lyon, known to fame as the 
Master of Glamis. 

Before the death of the seventh Lord Glamis, the Reformation had 
been gradually spreading in Scotland, but he may have held aloof 
from the religious movement that was paramount during the life of 
his sons. In 1548 Mary Stuart as the betrothed of the Dauphin, had 
been sent to the Court of France to be brovight up with the children 
of Henry H. and Catherine ae Medici. The Queen Dowager, Mary of 
Guise, a master of tact and craft, had gained the nobles by her gracious 
promises, and the people by tolerating the Reformation so ' far that 
only one disagreeable incident had occurred, the execution of "a simple 
but over zealous man for the new doctrine." After the death of 
Edward VI. 1553, the Scottish adherents of the Reformation who had 
taken refuge in England had to go abroad or return home to escape 
the persecution of Mary Tudor. The powerful preachers, Harlow and 
Whitlock and Knox organized the church in Scotland and the ministers 
of the Congregation were planted. Knox received Edinburgh for his 
charge," and Perth and Sterling were committed to the Congregation. 
A bond drawn up in 1557 by Argyle, Morton, Lome and Erskine "to 
defend the whole Congregation of Christ and every member thereof 

against Satan and all wicked powers," was the first Covenant. 

When the Regent, Mary of Guise, deserted by the Scottish nobility, 
came to die, to conform had become general. The Parliament of that 
year (1560), the great Reformation Parliament, was attended by the 
nobles, bishops, lesser barons, landed gentry, and representatives. On 
August 10th the Confession of Faith was sanctioned by the estates, 
and on August 24th an act was passed prohibiting the rites by the 
church of Rome. Athole, Summerville, Caithness and Bothwell alone 
of all the nobles voted against the Confession, and the power of the 



20 LYON MEMORIAL 

State was in the hands of the party of the Reformation. If but four 
of the nobles voted against the Confession, then the sons of John 
Lyon, seventh Lord Glamis, John Lyon, eighth Lord Glamis, and the 
Thomas Lyon, Master of Glamis, must have stood in line with the 
times through an evolution of opinion, and accepted the new order of 
things in active approbation. 

The wheel of history was making some dizzy revolutions in 
Scotland, carrying the Lyon family onward in a rush of peculiar 
events. The widow. Queen Mary, had come home from France to a 
career of capers and intrigues, of conspiracies and crimes, and the 
thunder-bolts of John Knox could not frighten her back from destruc- 
tion. Her ill-advised marriage with her cousin, Lord Darnley, the 
birth of her son, the heir to the throne, the murder of David Rizzio, 
the retaliatory murder of Darnley, and the suspicion of the Queen's 
consent to the death of her husband, Bothwell's indecent wooing when 
the royal dead was just buried. Queen Mary's mad marriage with 
the Black Earl, the rebellion of her outraged subjects, the surrender 
at Carbary Hill, and the escape from Lochleven Castle were the 
extraordinary happenings of seven years of Scottish history. 

The Lyons drew near together while their giddy sovereign achieved 
ner own ruin, distrustful of the spinster daughter of Henry VIII. 
and remembering the few that came home from Flodden Field, put 
their own house in order with a prayer that one might be spared. In 
a charter dated April 23rd, 1567, John Lyon, eighth Lord Glamis, made 
an entail of his estates of Glamis, Towndyce and Baky in Forfarshire, 
Cullan, Buttergask, Langforyard and Irchture in Perthshire, Bethelvic, 
Ardendracht, Collistown, Coustertown and Drumgowan in Aberdeen- 
shire, on himself and the male heirs of his body, Thomas Lyon, his 
brother, John Lyon of Haltown of Esse, James Lyon of Easter Ogill, 
John Lyon of Culwalogy, and the heirs of their bodies, respectively, 
which failing, to his own nearest heirs male whatsoever bearing the 
name and Arms of Lyon. This charter gives the headship of five 
prominent branches of the Lyon family of Scotland in 1567, John Lyon, 
eighth Lord Glamis; Thomas Lyon, Master of Glamis; John Lyon of 
Haltown of Esse; James Lyon of Easter Ogill, and John Lyon of Cul- 
walogy, all lineal descendants of the Feudal Baron John de Lyon of 
Fortevoit. 

The eighth Lord Glamis had a charter of the Barony of Balky to 
himself and his wife, Elizabeth Abernathy, daughter of Lord Salton, 
dated 2nd July, 1569, the sixth month of Moray's Regency. During 
the Regencies of Lenox, Mar, and Morton, he rose to prominence. He 



SOME OLD WORLD LYONS 21 

was sworn a Privy Councillor and constituted an Extraordinary Lord 
of the session, 30tli September, 1570, held it till 24th October, 1573, and 
in 1575 was promoted to the office of High Chancellor of Scotland. In 
the meantime, Moray and Lenox had died by violence, and Mar by 
foul play. The death of John Knox, and the Massacre of St. Bartholo- 
mew had been simultaneous events. 

In March, 1578, John Lyon, Lord of Glamis, was deputed to signify 
to the Earl of Morton, Regent of Scotland, that the King had now 
resolved to take the administration of the national affairs in his own 
hands. The 27th day of the same month the eighth Lord Glamis was 
killed at Sterling in an accidental encounter between his own followers 
and those of the Earl of Crawford. He was counted one of the ablest 
men of his own party, and Douglas took pride in mentioning that 
John Lyon had a correspondence with Beza, the French reformer 
and Calvanistic theologian, on the subject of church polity and the 
doctrines of the Prophet of Geneva. 

He had one son, Patrick Lyon, ninth Lord Glamis and two 
daughters, the Hon. Jean Lyon, who married; 1st Robert Douglas, 
the younger of Lochleven; 2nd 1586 Archibald, eighth Lord of Angus, 
and 3rd Alexander, Lord Spynie, and the Hon. Elizabeth Lyon who 
married Patrick, seventh Earl Gray. 

The Hon, Thomas Lyon, designated Master of Glamis as presump- 
tive heir to the title, increased his estates in the short tenure of the 
death-shadowed Regents, Lenox, Mar, and Morton. He had charters 
to "Thomas Lyon, brother of John, Lord Glamis" of Seragesfield, 18th 
September, 1571; of the Dominical lands of Balumbu. also the lands 
of Gogar, and Grugar in the counties of Edinburgh and Air, to "Thomas 
Lyon of Balkouky, Master of Glamis and Agnes Gray, Lady Home, 
his wife, 20th June, 1579, of the Barony of Melgownd," etc., in Forfar- 
shire, to them 6th May, 1586. 

Morton, in 1581, was accused in the Council of Holyrood for com- 
plicity in the murder of Darnley. He was tried and on his own 
confession that Bothwell had revealed to him the plot to kill the 
Queen's husband, was convicted as an accomplice in the crime. 

The management of the affairs of the realm passed to Lenox and 
Stewart. One had been created a Duke, and the other received the 
Earldom of Arran. These two ambitious personages in 1582 were in a 
plot to associate Mary Stuart with her son in the Government, to 
renew the league with France, and through a breach with England 
to restore the church of Rome. Bribes won even many of the nobility 



22 LYON MEMORIAL 

to this hazardous scheme The Presbyterian ministers were not 
approachable, and an illegal banishment of the clergy was expedient. 
A proclamation for an Extraordinary Chamberlain Air — an itinerant 
Court of Justice — to be held at Lenox, precipitated the Raid of Ruthvan. 
where the Master of Glamis was one of the principal agents in the 
seizure of the person of the King. James was on a visit to the Earl 
of Cowrie at the Castle of Hunting Tower near Perth. During the 
absence of Lenox and Arran, the Master of Glamis, with some others, 
surrounded the Castle with armed men, and with Gowrie made James 
VI. a prisoner. The King, trusting none and fearing all, started 
toward the door in an impulse of flight, but the Master of Glamis 
stayed his going. The apprehensive James in his alarmed agitation 
burst into tears, exclaiming "No matter, better children weep than 
armed men," and surrendered to these new enforced guardians. Arran, 
on his return to Perth, was cast into prison by this other band of 
conspirators, and Lenox took refuge in Dumbarton Castle, and soon 
fled to France. 

The tutelage of the Protestant nobles was disagreeable and irri- 
tating to the royal youth, and at length he escaped from Falkland to 
St. Andrews. The Raid of Ruthvan was declared high treason. The 
Earl of Gowrie was taken and executed for his political crime. But 
the Master of Glamis fled to England to review the situation and re- 
adjust his plans. In May of the same year, Thomas Lyon returned to 
Scotland, and with the Earls of Angus and Mar, seized Sterling Castle 
and assumed the Government. But they were presently obliged to fly 
across the border. The following year the Master of Glamis and the 
other banished nobles came north, bringing a great force with them. 
They invaded the Palace and compelled Stewart, Earl of Arran, to quit 
the royal presence. This high-handed disloyalty was graciously for- 
given, and they were restored to favor. Thomas Lyon received the 
prodigal's ring and embrace in being appointed Captain of the King's 
Guards in the place of Arran, and was made high treasurer of Scotland. 
He was also constituted an extraordinary Lord of the Session, held the 
position for six years, then was re-appointed and sat till May 28th, 
1593. 

The nobility and landed gentry were spoilsmen and quick 
to take advantage of the King's privilege to grant feus of church 
lands annexed to the Crown. The Master of Glamis, the prime mover 
In the Raid of Ruthvan, must have rated his second treason of the 
seizure of Sterling Castle and the person of James VI. as a service 



SOME OLD WORLD LYONS 23 

rendered to his sovereign. By force of argument of a Calvanistic turn, 
he may have appeased the sombre yet fickle conscience of an unfilial 
son in the days of fretful remorse or religious excitement after Mary 
Stuart expiated her follies on the block at Fortheringay. James had 
needs to lean upon a character of tremendous strength, and nothing 
daunted Thomas Lyon. Tomorrow was seen through a veil of sickening 
uneasiness. It might be his turn next. Out from the dank crypt of 
history came a grisly procession of Scottish Kings to point to their 
wounds and remind him that the divinity that hedged him 'round 
would not save him from the swords of the lawless Barons. The 
headless ghost of his crown-robbed mother lurked behind the hangings 
of his chamber. He did not remember her fair face, and he had been 
told that she was a baggage who had sinned many sins. But he had 
sided against the woman who bore him, for a woman who delivered 
her royal person to the heads-man. 

An axe-blow could sever the stem of his own neck, if his terrible 
cousin in the ruff and farthingale had him within her borders. And 
while the miserable young Monarch, haunted by horrors that had 
come to pass, and horrors that were yet to be, fretted over the Govern- 
ment of a turbulent and fearful people, the few near his person, 
by indulging his humors, reaped much benefit. Thomas Lyon received 
a charter of Tullock and Crawquhy in Forfarshire, August 19th, 1587, 
"to Thomas Lyon of Baldoukie, His Majesty's treasurer. Master of 
Glamis, of Corstown, and of the Barony of Dod in Forfarshire, to 
him and Eufamia Douglas, his wife, November 7th, 1589," adding sub- 
stantially to his estate. 

The King in 1585, "was become a brave prince in bodie and 
ptature, so well exercised in reading that he could perfitlie record all 
things he had either heard or read. Therefore that noble King Frederic 
II. of Denmark, who had then twa daughters, was willing (gif it suld 
please our King) either to give him the choice of thaim, or that he 
would accept the one of thaim as it suld please the father to bestow 
guhilk suld be maist comely, and the best for his princelie content- 
ment." To Danish Anna fell the honor of being the royal bride. After 
a long proxy courtship, a romantic marriage, and a honeymoon spent 
at Upslo, the Danish princess was brought home to Scotland, and her 
coronation took place within the Abbey of Holyrood on the 17th of 
May, 1590. "Twa high places were appointed there, one for the 
King and the other for the Queen. The King's procession, having en- 
tered the Abbey, that of the Queen, preceded by several Danish nobles, 



24 LYON MEMORIAL 

magnificently dressed, with diamond chains about their necks, then 
came the Scottish nobles and heralds; Lord Lion, King-at-Arms, ushered 
Lord Thirlstone bearing between his two hands the Queen's Crown, then 
follov/ed the Queen herself in royal robes." The company and the cere- 
mony were splendidly imposing as described in a contemporary chron- 
icle. Here, as at the coronation of Robert II., Lion-King-at-Arms was a 
striking feature of an historical pageant. Princely revelry on that May 
Sunday, frightened the Holyrood ghosts back to the shades. On Tuesday 
the Queen, in a gilded coach, the King and the Court, had a street par- 
ade in Edinburgh, and the festivities were prolonged even into the 
month of June. Thomas Lyon, Master of Glamis, was Knighted while 
the coronation rejoicing was in progress. On May 27th, 1590, the Scot- 
tish statesman and soldier knelt before the royal pair and was dubbed 
Sir Knight. He was still among the King's advisers and held the impor- 
tant office of high treasurer of Scotland till 1595. 

After 1571 he had married Agnes Gray, Lady Howe, third daughter 
of the fifth Lord Howe, widow of Sir Robert Logan, and of Alexander, 
fifth Lord Howe; and for a second wife, he married Lady Eufamia 
Douglas. There was another charter granted to him April 6th, 1594, "to 
Thomas Lyon of Auldbar, Knight, and Euphemia Douglas his wife." 
From the return of the banished Lords in 1585, he had remained in 
favor with the King, faithful to the best interests of his sovereign, 
and when death ended his eventful life James \i. of Scotland and I. of 
England said: "The boldest and hardest man of my dominion is 
dead." But two of his children are on record, a daughter, Mary Lyon, 
who married Robert Semphell of Bellars, and a son, John Lyon, who, 
August 6th, 1608, served as heir to his father, Sir Thomas Lyon, 
Knight, in the Barony of Melgund lands of Auldbar, etc., etc. But 
he may have had other sons forgotten by an absentee King and 
omitted in the family annals. John Lyon of Auldbar married a 
daughter of George Gladstone, Archbishop of St. Andrews. He must 
have died before 1617 without issue, or lost favor through some 
political blunder and forfeited his estates, involving all other descend- 
ants of Sir Thomas Lyon, Knight. At any rate, Anne Murray, Countess 
of Kinghorne, and her son, John Lyon, second Earl of King- 
horne, August 8th, 1617, had a charter to the Barony of Auldbar 
in Forfarshire. The lands of Auldbar had been given by Earl Patrick 
to his second son, Hon. James Lyon, who died without issue, and this 
estate reverted to the family. The next Lyon of Auldbar, after a lapse 
of three generations, was John Lyon, Esq., of Brachin in North Britain, 



SOME OLD WORLD LYONS 25 

a great grandson of the famous Master of Glamis, Sir Thomas Lyon. 

Patrick, ninth Lord Glamis, being a minor at the time of the 
death of his father, John Lyon, eighth Lord, in 1578, was placed under 
the tuition of his uncle. Sir Thomas Lyon, who was afterward (1585) 
high treasurer of Scotland. He served as heir in general of his grand- 
father, John Lyon, seventh Lord Glamis, January 29th, 1600. Through 
his rank he received a remission under the great seal, dated 15th of 
September, 1601, of penalty for a transgression of violence to him and 
his five servants, for the slaughter of Patrick Johnstown in Haltown 
of Belhelote, slain on the 6th of September, accidental homicide, 
justifiable homicide and incidental homicide, misfortunate matters 
too common with the nobility and the gentry not to be easily pardoned. 
In 1604, Lord Patrick Lyon was sworn a privy councillor of James VI, 
and chosen by Parliament as one of the Commissioners to treat of 
the Union with England. 

Favors continued to be heaped upon him. He had charters of 
Ardwork in Forfarshire 8th of August, 1605, of Kingseat in Aberdeen- 
shire 17th June, 1606, and by a patent dated 10th July, 1606, was raised 
to the dignity of Earl of Kinghorne, Lord Lyon and Glamis. He and 
his wife, Anne Murray, and their second son, James Lyon, had charter 
of Wester Drynic in Forfarshire, 20th May, 1608, of the Isle of Inch 
Keith and right to the patronage of Kinghorne, 10th June, 1609, of the 
Barony of Farnadic the following year and of the dominical lands of 
Hurley in 1613. His death occurred December 19th, 1615, and he was 
succeeded by his eldest son, John Lyon, second Earl of Kinghorne. He 
had also a daughter, Anne, who married the Earl of Errol, and a 
third son, Hon. Fredrick Lyon, who got from his father the lands of 
Brighton and was the ancestor of the Lyons of Brighton. John Lyon, 
tenth Lord Glamis and second Earl of Kinghorne, was a minor when 
he came into his lands and titles. In 1603, at the succession of King 
James VI., Scotland had become a part of England, the home of the 
elder branch of the Lyon family. 

Sir Adam Lyon, first son of John de Lyon, Feudal Baron of 
Forteviot, the descendant of the Norman de Leonne who fought at 
Hastings with the Conqueror, was of Norfolk, England, at the time 
his brother John de Lyon, married the Princess Jean, daughter of 
Robert High Stewart of Scotland.* Sir Adam Lyon, Knight, had two 
sons, — Sir John Lyon born about 1320, who was Knighted by Edward 



*Welles "American Family Antiquity." 



26 LYON MEMORIAL 

III. and Adam de Lyon born about 1325. Sir John Lyon, Knight of 
Norfolk, had three sons, — Sir Richard Lyon born about 1350, and Sir 
John Lyon born about 1353, both Knighted by Edward IV. and Henry 
Lyon born about 1355. Henry Lyon of Rystippe, Middlesex, born in 
Norfolk about 1355, great grandson of John de Lyon, Feudal Baron of 
Forteviot, had a son, John Lyon, born at Rystippe about 1380. He was 
with the army of Henry V. that invaded Normandy, and was at Agin- 
court, amid the splendid pageantry of a war that made England heir to 
the Crown of France, and was present at the famous battle. He had a 
son, Henry Lyon, born at Rystippe about 1410, the second of a name 
which became a heritage among the Lyons. Jotm was a favorite pre- 
nomen with the English as well as the Scotch Lyons. Thomas and 
William were also baptismal names repeated from generation to gener- 
ation. The name of Adam came in use in 1225, that of Richard 1350 and 
that of Henry in 1355. Henry Lyon of Rystippe, born about 1410, had 
four sons all born at Rystippe, Henry born about 1440, John born about 
1450, Thomas born about 1455 and William born about 1508, who died 
without issue. Henry Lyon of Rystippe, Middlesex, England (1410), the 
third of the name, had two sons, — 1st John, born about 1470, and 2nd, 
William, born about 1475. 

John Lyon (1450), second son of Henry of Rystippe, had a son, 
John Lyon of Preston, Midulesex County, born 1500, who was the 
founder of the famous English school of Harrow-on-the-Hill, ten miles 
from London. This philanthropic yeoman of Preston yearly set aside 
the sum of twenty marks for the education of the poor children of 
Harrow. The school of Harrow was founded 1571. Queen Elizabeth 
granted the charter. But the statutes were drawn up by the founder 
in 1590. However, the first building was not completed till 1611. A.t 
his death, October 3rd, 1692, he settled two-thirds of his property on 
the school, and left the other third for the maintenance of a high- 
road between Harrow and London. John Lyon and his widow, Jean 
Lyon, who died August 30th, 1608, are buried at Harrow. They had — 
Mary, born at Preston 1540, buried at Harrow December 13th, 1568, 
Jean, born at Preston 1545. buried at Harrow, May 13th, 1559, and 
Zachery, born at Preston 1560, died without issue, and was buried at 
Harrow, May 11th, 1583. It is a pleasing coincidence that Mary Lyon, 
the American Educator, Founder of Mount Holyoke Seminary (now 
College), for the higher education of women, should have borne the 
name of the eldest daughter of John Lyon, founder of the great school 
of Harrow-on-the-Hill.

Thomas Lyon (1455) of Perefore Middlesex County, third son of 
Henry Lyon of Rystippe, had two sons. The first of these was Sir 
John Lyon, born about 1490, who was Knighted by Queen Elizabeth. 
In 1550 he was made an Alderman of London and High Sheriff and in 
1554 was Lord Mayor. By his wife Alicia he had a son, John Lyon, 
born about 1550 and died without issue 1620. The second son of 
Thomas Lyon (1455), was Henry Lyon of Roxley in Lincolnshire. By 
his wife Dorothy, he had two sons, Richard Lyon of West Twyford, 
Middlesex County, born about 1532, and Henry Lyon of Harrow-on- 
the-Hill, born about 1550, who died October 16th, 1590. Richard Lyon, 
of West Twyford 1532, by his first wife Agnes, had a son Henry Lyon 
of Roxley in Lincolnshire, born about 1655, who married Catherine 
Rithe, and had issue, also issue by his second wife, Mabilla, daughter 
of Adam Dornell of Thornhohn, Lincolnshire. By his second wife, 
Isabella Millet, Richard Lyon of Twyford had three children, John 
Lyon born about 1560, died without issue, Dorothy Lyon, born 1565, 
married Humphrey Hyde of Northeste, Berkshire, had issue, and 
Catherine Lyon, born 1570, married William Gifford of Northeste, 
Middlesex County, and had issue. 

John Lyon of Rystippe, the third, first son of Henry Lyon (1440), 
was born there 1470. He married Emma Hedde, and had four sons, 
Henry Lyon, born 1500, Thomas, born 1503, Richard, born 1505, and 
John, born 1510. It is a singular fact that of the fifteen Lyons who came 
to the American Colonies between 1638-1683, twelve of them bore the 
distinctive family names of these sons of John Lyon of Rystippe, the 
exception being William of Roxbury, and Peter and George Lyon of 
Dorchester. However, William was a name that begun with the William 
Lyon who was born at Rystippe 1640 and continued in favor. 

John Lyon of Little Stanmer, Middlesex County, first son of John 
Lyon of Rystippe, was born at Rystippe 1510. His wife, Jean Lyon, 
died April 5th, 1535, just a hundred years before her great grandson, 
William Lyon of Heston, landed at Boston September 11th, 1635, a lad 
of fourteen, who sailed in the ship "Hopewell," with Capt. Babb. No 
doubt he was under the care of Isaac Heath a fellow passenger, who 
brought his own family with him, drifting on the westward tide of 
Puritan emigration from a King-ridden, clergy-ridden country to the 
Land of Hope. John Lyon of Little Stanmer, and his wife, Jean, had 
three children, William born 1540, Elizabeth born 1545, died 1606, and 
Thomas born 1550. Thomas Lyon (1550), had a son William Lyon, 
born 1575, died 1624. This William Lyon was called the Marquis of 



28 LYON MEMORIAL 

Southwold, and he was owner of the forefather ship "Lyon," which 
brought many a cargo of precious souls to New England. Among her 
passengers was Rev. John Eliot the non-conformist minister of Roxbury 
church, the Apostle of the American Indians, and Roger Williams, 
the Apostle of Civil Liberty. 

William Lyon of Stanmer Parva, Middlesex County, first son of 
John Lyon of Little Stanmer, who was born at Little Stanmer 1540, 
was buried at the place of his nativity September 17th, 1624, the year 
before the death of King James I. He was twice married, first to 
Isabella, daughter of William Wightman, Esq., second to Audry Deer- 
ing, by whom he had three sons, William, born at Stanmer Parva, 1580, 
Thomas, born 1585, (he had issue) ; and Robert, born 1590. His con- 
temporaries among his kindred of the Scottish branch of the Lyon 
family were: John Lyon, Eighth Lord Glamis, Patrick Lyon, who was 
first Earl of Kinghorne, and Thomas Lyon, Master of Glamis. 

William Lyon, born at Stanmer Parva, 1580 was William Lyon 
of Heston, Middlesex County. He resided at Heston, but was buried 
at Little Stanmer, November 17th, 1634. He married at Harrow-on-the- 
Hill, July 17th, 1615, Anne Carter, and they lived together for nineteen 
years. She did not long survive her husband, and was buried at 
Little Stanmer Feb. 18th, 1638. The children of William of Heston 
were: Catherine, baptised at Heston August 25th, 1616, John, baptised 
June, 1619, and William, baptised December 20th, 1620.t 

When William Lyon of Heston died in 1634, John Lyon, tenth Lord 
Glamis, and second Earl of Kinghorn, was head of the Lyon family 
of Scotland. The Nation through political evolution, had fallen upon 
evil times. The taint of a democratic tendency in the North had 
spread across the border, and the absolutism of the Tudor Kings ended 
with the expiring breath of the man-minded Elizabeth. The crown 
made by the cold fingers of the dying Sovereign, had given her domin- 
ion to her Scotch cousin. But the mantle of her greatness fell apart 
and crumbled away when her coflin was borne from Richmond, to be 
deposited in Westminster. Elizabeth was long-headed, tactful and 
liberal, and the destruction of the Spanish Armada was one of the 
glories of her reign. James was purblind, bad-tempered and narrow, 
and the Gunpowder Plot completely addled his confused judgment. 
When the monarch who styled himself King of Great Britain, uttered

in Roxbury, Mass. A full account of his descendants is contained In the 
"Lyon Memorial, Massachusetts Families."

his rash threat at the Conference of Hampton Court with the leading 
Puritan clergy, and the leading bishops, "I will make them conform, 
or I will harry them out of the land," he threw down the gage of 
battle to a militant people, whose army had been gathering from 
among tradesmen, artisans, yoemen, and nobles since the note of 
personal freedom was sounded by the divine trumpet of the Reforma- 
tion two centuries before. 

In the fatality that attended the fortunes of the Stuarts, he 
contaminated his son by the bad teaching of his despotic example, and 
when he came to die, after years of misgovernment, the heritage 
of his evasions, blunders, and disasters brought the ruin of a madly 
rash course and a death on the block to his unhappy successor. 

The Covenanters were tenacious, the Puritans were heroic. These 
fanatical religionists were but biding their time, while Charles I. as if 
fate-driven was destroying the very fabric of the State. Long ago, as 
far back as 1618, the dragon's teeth of a religious war had been 
sown by the adoption of the five articles of Perth, and the fertile North 
had grown a lusty crop of determined rebellers. The Scots, armed with 
spear and sword, of religious and political instinct were ripe for a revo- 
lution. The Nobles and landed gentry were alienated from the King. 
The removal of the Court had robbed them of prestige and profit. 
Those near the royal presence were promoted and flattered, those 
afar were neglected and despised. Furthermore, his peculiar policy 
meant ruin for those of his native land. A petition of protest was put 
into private circulation against thirty-one acts "hurtful to the liberty 
of the subject," passed by a Parliament where Charles had presided. 
A copy of this document was found in the possession of Lord Balmoral. 
He was tried for sedition, received a capital sentence, which was 
afterward modified to imprisonment. The Scots were astir with a 
secret resentment which became open revolt when the use of the 
liturgy at St. Giles Church in Edinburgh and at Greyfriers in Perth 
occasioned riots. 

Montrose received a commission from the Tables, a board of 
representatives chosen by the nobility, country gentry, clergy, and 
inhabitants of the burghs, to raise troops for the service of the 
Covenanters, which he proceeded to embody with extraordinary power. 
Within a month he collected some three thousand foot and horse from 
Perth, Forfar and Fife, and put them under military discipline. 
Joined by forces under General Leslie, the rebel army marched upon 
Aberdeen which the Marquis of Huntley abandoned at their approach.

It was "upon morn, being Saturday, they came in order of battell, 
weil armed both, on horse and foot, all horsemen having five shots at 
least with one carabine in his hand, two pistols by his sydes and two 
others at his saddle toir. The pike men in their ranks, with pike and 
sword, the musketiers in their rank with musket stuffe, bandelier, 
sword, power match ilk company, both foot and horse had their 
Captain, Lieutenants, Ensigns, Sergeants and other officers and com- 
manders all for the most part in buff coats and in goodly order. 
They had five colors of ensigns, whereof the Earl of Montrose had 
one having this motto: 'For religion, the Covenant and the Countrie,' 
the Earl Marischell had one, the Earl of Kinghorn had one, and the 
town of Dundee had two." 

This Earl of Kinghorn was John Lyon, tenth Lord of Glamis, a 
descendant in the third generation from John Lyon, who was tried 
and convicted for "being art and part of concealing and not revealing 
of the conspiring and imagination in the destruction of King James 
V. by poison imagined and conspired by Janet, Lady Glamis, his 
mother." The unlaid ghost of the woman who died by fire on the 
Castle Hill of Edinburgh made every Lyon the hereditary enemy 
of every Stuart King. However, the second Earl of Kinghorn voted 
in the Parliament against the delivery of King Charles L up to the 
English, an act of tardy loyalty to a faithless Monarch avenged by 
Cromwell when he made a barrack of Glamis Castle for his Round- 
head soldiery. The King declined to do battle with Leslie and Mont- 
rose, and the Scottish army disbanded. 

By the pacification of Berwick it was agreed that all ecclesiastical 
matters should be regulated by an assembly to be held at Edinburgh 
and all civil matters by Parliament and other legal Courts. And the 
Earls went home with their foot and horse, to await the next move 
of destiny in the crowned Beelzebub, who was liege of the United 
Kingdom. They remembered the signing of the National Covenant in 
Greyfriers Church that bleak March day, when the Nobles and the 
gentry, three hundred ministers and a great multitude of people, 
pledged themselves before Almighty God to maintain the Presbyterian 
doctrine and polity as the sole religion of their country, to the 
exclusion of Prelacy and Popery. Copies of this heaven-inspired docu- 
ment had been dispatched — a veritable "tarie" — the length and breadth 
of Scotland. And this great clan of an outraged Nation would 
answer the summons of their Chief in the heavens. The Lord God 
of Sabbaoth. And the day of doom grew nearer and nearer. The 



SOME OLD WORLD LYONS 31 

Covenant of Iboo was as dear to the Scots as the Magna Charta was to 
the English. In 1641 the Parliament met at Edinburgh. The King 
was in attendance, unscrupulous, insincere, complying with the bold 
demands of his rebellious subjects and he hoped to corrupt the leading 
Covenanters by favors and promises. But the pleasing compromises 
of a protestant tainted with Rome by no means propitiated a people 
familiar with his trickery in politics. They did not love a Stuart and 
it behooved a distrustful King to realize his limitation. Macauley 
shows the quality of the fealty of these feudal chieftains. "They 
butchered James I. in his bedchamber, repeatedly they were in arms 
against James II., they slew James III. on the field of battle, broke the 
heart of James V., deposed Mary and led her son into captivity, and 
virtually sold her grandson for a price." North of the border there 
was an unmentioned equality between Monarch and Noble. They had 
little respect for the authority of James VI. of Scotland, when he 
assayed to rule them from the English throne. Charles Stuart 
might be their Sovereign by the Grace of God, but the laird, the 
patriarchal headship of a clan was a King by rights as old as tradition. 
They, and all that subscribed the Covenant, saw him as a bishop-ruled, 
queen-ruled despot, who would pull down Jehovah's temple of the 
Kirk with his episcopacy and deliver the Scots to a Babylon captivity, 
where the liturgy and the canons would bind them in perpetual 
thraldom. 

They stood by him v/hen the tidal wave of fire of the Civil War 
left him helpless. Still they had no pity for him. His regnal years 
had been a never-ended battle betwixt an idee fixe of an hereditary 
opinion and an idee fixe of religious liberty. Wyclifs' tracts and 
texts in the South and John Knox's sermons in the North had given 
Great Britain a fitter King, and all the slain at Naseby and Marston 
Moor "died for the cause of freedom and the truth in Christ." 

But in the end, the North and the South were equally blood-guilty 
in his death. The Scots had their pieces of silver,' furthermore, they 
washed their hands of the deed. The South was waging a holy 
war like unto the wars of David against the idolaters, believing a 
free and pious Commonwealth could be build on the ruins of a 
Monarchy. These austere warriors were not mercenaries from across 
the Channel, nor the yokels of the country, nor the riff-raff of the 
towns. The parliamentarian army was composed of men of d"ecent 
station and men of rank. The very best of England met the very 
best of Scotland at Marston Moor, and the descendants of John de 



32 LYON MEMORIAL 

Lyon, Feudal Baron of Fortevoit, fought on either side in that battle 
of kindred, those of the North for a King they despised, and those 
of the South for public liberty. He provoked his destiny. Defeat and 
flight, imprisonment and death were written in crimson letters across 
his policy with his subjects, Puritan and Covenanter. He held them 
in equal hatred with no choice between them. "I am not without 
hope that I shall be able to draw either the presbyterians or independ- 
ents to me for the extirpating of the one or the other that I shall 
be easily King again,' expresses his attitude to his people. He would 
not realize his danger. Moral and physical cowardice were not among 
his weaknesses. They dared not, this Round-head Court, that 
arraigned their Sovereign in Westminster Hall. He embodied feudal- 
ism; and through the nightmare hours of the seven days' trial he sat 
in majestic composure, eyeing Bradshaw, in his scarlet robe and high 
hat; eyeing the bewildered spectators; eyeing Cromw^ell half expecting 
at some shout of God Save the King! the armed force and the nervous 
populace that packed the hall would turn upon his self-appoiuted 
judges. Then the headsman's arm would be wea,ry of swinging the 
axe, and those that died for this treason would be a multitude. 

His sentence was passed in the midst of confusion. "Justice! 
Execution!" was the cry that followed him from the court of the 
regicides to Whitehall; from Whitehall to St. James, to the Banquet- 
ing House at Whitehall, that bitter mid-winter day. 

But when he passed through the window at the further end of 
the Banqueting Hall to the scaffold raised in the street, no voice was 
lifted in mockery or malice. Dense masses of soldiery were far and 
near, the mournful cries of the populace in the distance were borne 
weirdly to him by the low wind. And the great pack of Puritan war- 
riors waited in breathless expectancy while the King adressel his 
last speech to Bishop Tuxon and Colonel Tomlinson, inside the window. 
He spoke with the executioner. He put his flowing hair under a cap. 
He threw off his coat and gave his "George" to the Bishop saying, 
"Remember," a word of mystery, of significance. He stood in profound 
meditation, whispered a brief prayer, and knelt at the block, the altar 
of expiation, and with one blow his royal head was severed from his 
body. As if from the hill of Golgotha when the Son of Man gave up 
the ghost, a simultaneous groan broke from that vast assembly, from 
the armed Puritans and from the crowded people who neither heard 
nor saw. 



SOME OLD WORLD LYONS 33 

It was consummated. And they wrapped him in the ermine of his 
rank and called him a martyr. Troops of horse dispersed the crowd 
and night rung down the curtain on the greatest drama of English 
history. 

Note: — Agnes Strickland says in her "Lives of the Queens of England," 
to establish the date of the execution; "It was found, withal, that 
no inscription had been placed on the royal coffin. One of the 
gentlemen present supplied this want by simple but effectual 
expedient. A band of sheet lead was procured, and they cut out of 
it with pen knives spaces in the form of large letters so that the 
words 

CHARLES REX 
1648 
could be read, the leaden band was then lapped round the coffin." 
"Many absurd tales regarding the disposal of the corpse of Charles 
I. were circulated among the enemies of Monarchy in the course of the 
last century. These were all set at rest by the accidental discovery 
of the vault containing his remains and those of Henry VIII. and 
Jane Seymour, which were equally forgotten. King George IV. on the 
evening of the funeral of his aunt, the Duchess of Brunswick, 1813, 
went, attended by Sir Henry Halford and several Noblemen, and 
assisted personally at the opening of Charles I.'s coffin, when the corpse 
was satisfactorily recognized." Narrative by Sir Henry Halford. 



SOME NEW WORLD LYONS. 



Henry, Thomas and Richard Lyon, Lyons of Glen Lyon in Perth- 
shire, soldiers in Cromwell's army, were on guard before the Ban- 
queting House at Whitehall on January 30th, 1648, and they witnessed 
the execution of Charles I. A tremendous reaction followed the regi- 
cide, and many a Puritan and Covenanter patriot of the insurgent 
army disappeared from London in the confusion of the horror of the 
days the headless corpse of the Monarch remained at St. James 
Palace, till it was deposited in the vaults of the Chapel at Windsor. 
The King was dead — long live the King! After an interregnum of a 
few tomorrows another Stuart would come to the throne, and the 
years of his regent-ruled minority would be a sorry reckoning for 
those who bore arms against his discrowned and dishonored sire. 

The Scots never acted as an integral body. Every clan was an 
independent force that withdrew at the discretion of its chieftain. 
The three Lyon hrothers from Glen Lyon, took advantage of a national 
privilege. They had kinsmen in Middlesex and Norfolk counties who 
may have kept them in concealment pending a departure of a ship for 
the Colonies across the sea. Over there they had kindred in the new 
Fatherland of Freemen. 

It is a rational supposition that Henry, Thomas and Richard 
Lyon landed at New Haven. There lived John Lyne of Badby, North- 
amptonshire, England, one of that opulent company of two hundred 
fifty persons who came from London on the ship "Hector" January 
12th, 1638, with Theophilus Eaton and Edward Hopkins as their 
directors and the Puritan divine, John Davenport, as their spiritual 
guide, to plant an independent colony on the Connecticut Coast. And 
when the Plantation Covenant was signed, June 4th, 1638, John 
Lyne affixed his signature among names that became historic when 
the story of New England was told. They were an anti-Monarchal 
people strongly in sympathy with the Parliamentarian party. To 
their hospitable protection came the Regicides, Goffe and Whalley, 
in later troublous times. The young Scots from Perthshire were 
sure of a welcome. Their news was waited for in every town and 
settlement. But it would be detailed in whispers behind barred doors.

Other Lyon emigrants had preceded the three who stood beneath 
the scaffold at Whitehall, when the second executioner, the grey-beard 
mask, lifted the bleeding head and announced, "This is the head of a 
traitor!" 

Colonel John Lyon of the Scottish Guards of Henry IV. of 
France, had a son William Lyon, who was denounced as a heretic at 
the time of the massacre of St. Bartholemew, 1572. He escaped to 
Holland, and finally came to America with his three children.* The 
next to come to a remote world were the orphan sons of William and 
Anne Lyon of Heston, in Middlesex County, England. John Lyon, the 
eldest, aged 18 years, came in the ship "Hopewell," Captain Babb, Feb- 
ruary 12th, 1634. The following year his brother, William Lyon, aged 
14 years, came in the "Hopewell," September, 1635. John Lyne of Ne\» 
Haven from Badby, Northamptonshire, England, is the fourth on record. 
With him was his son, Henry Lyne or Lyon. Henry Lyon married Eliza- 
beth, daughter of Richard Harrison of West Kirby, Cheshire, England, 
the same Richard Harrison who removed from New Haven to Bran- 
ford, and came with the Branford Colony to Newark, New Jersey, 1666, 
as one of its founders. Elizabeth Harrison, widow of Henry Lyon, 
became the third wife of Mr. John Morris,* who was one of the 
signers of the New Haven Plantation Covenant, and he was one of the 
Milford Colony that planted Newark. On June 18th, 1668, he and his 
wife were appointed guardians of Hopestill Lyne, a minor. In the New 
Jersey archives is a certificate, "that Hopestill Lyne, 6 to 7 years old,, 
the daughter of Henry Lyne of New Haven, the son of John Lyne of 
Badby, Northamptonshire, which Henry died January 14th, 1662, and 
had child Hopestill by his wife Elizabeth, daughter of Richard Har- 
rison of West Kirby, Cheshire, England, is still alive, as sworn to by 
Richard Harrison, Thomas Johnston, William Meeker and Ellen John- 
ston." 

Henry Lyne doubtless spelled his name Lyon. 

The sixth on the list of emigrants, is John Lyon, who was at 
Salem from 1638 to 1648. The seventh is Peter Lyon, probably from 
Middlesex, England, who was at Dorchester, as a proprietor, 1639, was 
a freeman 1649 and died before 1694. Then came another English 
Lyon, Thomas Lyon from Yorkshire, who appeared on Byram River 
1640, antedating the advent in that locality of the Scotch Thomas 
Lyon by thirty-three years. (?) The ninth is Richard Lyon of Cam- 



*His descendants not placed.

the Milford Colonists of Newark.

bridge, who was sent from England by Sir Henry Mildmay as a tutor 
for his son William, at Harvard, 1644. He was co-adjutor of Presi- 
dent Demster in improving the New England version of the Psalms. 
Another John Lyon was at Marblehead, 1648. In 1648 came Henry, 
Thomas and Richard Lyon, Lyons of Glen Lyon. The last of the list is 
George Lyon of Dorchester, 1666 a freeman, 1669. In 1678 he joined 
the church at Milton, Mass. He may have been a brother of Peter 
Lyon of Dorchester. 

There may be duplications in the foil of first-comers, and the 
identity of others lost in the mystery of meagre information. I have 
found no trace of the descendants of William Lyon, the heretic son of 
Colonel John Lyon of the Scottish Guards of Henry IV. of France. 
But there may be those in the female line who will make themselves 
known. John Lyon of Salem, 1638-48, may be the John Lyon of Heston 
who came in the "Hopewell" 1635, and Thomas Lyon of Yorkshire, 
who, it is said, was at Byram Point in 1640, may have been confused 
with the Thomas Lyon of Fairfield, whose immediate descendants 
were so much in evidence from the "Liberty of North Castle," around 
Byram Point, and along the River and in the White Plains, "named 
for the balsam which grew there." This asserted early arrival of the 
Lyon family at either side of the Connecticut and New York line may 
be an error of tradition. 

Baird states this date is years too early. The late Mr. R. M. 
Lush,* a descendant of Thomas Lyon of Fairfield, who was familiar 
with every foot of the district occupied by these pioneers, said the 
claim that Thomas Lyon and John Banks voyaged to their new 
possessions in a row boat, 1649, was now rejected by the Lyon families 
identified with that locality. A small water vehicle was an inadequate 
means of transportation for a large party. Thomas Lyon had a wife 
and children, and some of his children were adults. The year before 
the transplanting of the household, his daughter, Abigail, had married 
John Banks at Stamford, a wedding that occurred on April 3rd, 1672, 
for Mr. Lush places the date of the emigration as 1673. Perhaps, 
too, there were other families from Fairfield and from Stamford, a 
goodly company that traveled through a pleasant land, witff their

chattels and flocks and herds. He left considerable estate behind him, 
as he shared in all the land divisions of Fairfield Township after 1654. 
However, on Nov. 1st, 1675, he sold his home lot to Daniel Frost, but he 
retained the rest of his realty. At the time of his death he was a large 
land holder at Fairfield and Greenwich, and he owned the Mill at 
Rye, and several acres of land at White Plains. Both Thomas Lyon 
and his son Thomas, were among the inhabitants of Rye in 1683. 
Lyon's Point, a promontory on the east side of Byram River, extending 
out into Long Island Sound, now a part of Port Chester, was named 
for the elder Thomas Lyon. Baird, Mead, and Bolton all agree that 
the Lyon families from Fairfield were Scots, a belief that has never 
been questioned by the descendants of Thomas, Richard, and Henry 
Lyon, the emigrants. 

The will of Thomas Lyon is dated Dec. 6th, 1689. He appointed 
his wife, Mary Lyon, executrix and his sons, John and Samuel execu- 
tors of his estate. John, the eldest son, as if by the right of primo- 
geniture, was given a double portion of the estate, the Mill at Rye, and 
several acres of land at White Plains. Thomas^ was given the home lot 
on the Byram River, other lands and the weaver's loom. Samuel 
received several pieces of land at Greenwich, Joseph received his 
father's dwelling house, barn and home lot on the northward part of 
the orchard, and a pasture on the eastward side of a big highway 
that goes into the Neck, all his rights and privileges in all divided 
and undivided lands at Greenwich, Rye, and Fairfield. His five daugh- 
ters, Mary, Abigail, Elizabeth, Deborah and Sarah, were given portions 
in money. He also remembered his grandson, Thomas, son of John 
Lyon.§ 

John Lyon, son of Thomas,^ increased his estate at Rye. On Feb. 
27th, 1698-9, at a meeting of the Proprietors of the town, it was 
agreed "that we doe impower the aforesaid men (Hecaliah Brown, 
Deliverance Brown, John Merritt, Robert Bloomer and John Stock- 
ham) to bargain with and sell unto John Lyon a certain tract of land 
lying up Byram River, if they shall see good and convenient soe to 
doe," and to John Lyon was confirmed "a parcel of land lying against 
the Mill Creek between the cartway down into the Neck and the Mill 
Creek bounded up the said Creek by John Hoit's meddow and to run

down the said Creek till it comes to John Boyd's meddow provided 
the said John Lyon doe not praidice the cartway into the Neck, nor 
the way to the Mill, neither shall hee hinder any parson from settin 
up thare field fence if they have occasion." Another record that 
conecrns John Lyon is dated Rye, Sept. 20th, 1697. "At a towne meet- 
ing Capt. Theall, John Horton, Joseph Purdy, Hecaliah Brown, John 
Lyon, Thomas Merrit, and Isaac Denman, are chosen as a Commity 
for the Management and carrying on of the worke of building a meet- 
ing house for the town of Ry, and also for the appointing of a place 
where it shall set, and the above meeting house shall not acsed above 
thirty square feet." 

The seating space of this place of worship speaks for the size 
of the congregation, which doubtless comprised every family in the 
settlement. 

The undivided White Plains Purchase was under the watchful 
protection of the men of Rye. In April, 1699, "John Lyon and Isaac 
Denman were chosen to laye out a road to White Plains, beginning at 
the head of Capt. Theall's land and so to run to the caseaway 
(causeway) brook." On the 17th of that month it is on record that, 

"The town hath past an act that the Rode shall continue Up to 

the White Playnes, where John Lyon and Isaac Denman have marked 
It out, and the said road shall be 3 rods in breadth." 

John Lyon was living at Greenwich in 1710. He had a son 
Thomas, who was mentioned in the will of his grandfather, Thomas 
Lyon, Sen., and a son John Jr., who married the widow, had a mill 
on Blind Brook Creek, 1719. This was the grist mill mentioned in 
the Royal Patent for Budd's Neck (Rye). The patent was subse- 
quently divided among the following proprietors: James Gadney, 102 
acres; Daniel Purdy, drummer of Rye, 40 acres; John Carpenter, a 
portion joining Mamaroneck River; Mr. William Browness of Rye, 2 
acres; that portion called the gusset to Jos. Ogden; a second of 30 
acres to Joseph Lyon; Daniel Purdy, 3 acres; Monmouth Hart, 15 acres; 
James Wood, 5 acres; Archibald Tilford, 18 acres; the residue to John 
Budd. 

John Lyon was the ancestor of the Lyons of North Castle. Among 
the North Castle Lyons was Capt. Roger Lyon of the Westchester 
Militia, and Capt. Gilbert Lyon, of the Continental Army. 

Richard Lyon, emigrant and soldier in Cromwell's army, from 
Glen Lyon in Perthshire, Scotland, appeared at Faidfleld, Conn., as early 



SOME NEW WORLD LYONS 39 

as 1648, the year of the regicide. His house and home lot of 2 acres, 
was recorded Jan., 1653. He was made freeman 1664, the year that 
his brother Henry returned to Milford. In 1673, the year that his 
brother Thomas went to Byram River, he received 5 acres of land 
at Barlow Plains and sixteen and a half acres on the Rocks was 
granted to him for a building lot, bounded N. W. and N. B. by the 
highway. Five years later he died, the first of the three brothers to 
go to another afar New World, a World Celestial, none of the three 
destined ever to return to their "ain countrie." From the tenor of his 
will, dated April 12th, 1678, it is surmised that Margaret Lyon was his 
second wife, and that he had two sets of children, Moses, Richard* 
(a minor), William, and Hester forming one group; and Joseph and 
Samuel (both minors), forming another. It would appear that he had 
little faith in the staying qualities of Margaret's grief, when he dis- 
criminated against her by giving her only a widowhood tenure in his 
estate. She must have been young and comely, and to leave her a 
fee simple portion was making a wedding gift to her second husband. 
However, there is no record at Fairfield to disclose that she relin- 
quished her dower to assume another name. To son Moses he gave one- 
third of the length of the homeward side of his land at Pequonock, 
one-fifth the length of the long lot on the S. W. side of the lands, his 
gun, his rapier, his biggest pewter platter, and confirmed lands already 
given to this son. 

Richard^ when of age, was to have one-third of the Pequonock 
land, 150 acres of the length of the long lot East of Moses' part, and 
other lands; William received one-third of the land at Pequonock, one- 
fifth of the length of the long lot East of Richard^'s share, other 
lands, his long gun, back sword and belt. (This is another evidence 
that in Colonial wills children are not mentioned in sequence of birth). 
To his wife, Margaret Lyon, Richard^ gave £60, his house and home 
lot, while she remained unmarried, and the use of Joseph's and Sam- 
uel's land during their minority. Samuel and Joseph were to have 
the homestead when they came of age and one-fifth of the long lot 
was to be divided between them. Hester, the eldest daughter, wife of 
Nathaniel Perry, received £i, and her husband and her son Joseph 
Perry, were to have £2 in carting and plowing. Three minor daughters, 
Betty, Hannah, and Abigail, were to have ii each when they came 
of age. A cousin, Mary Fitch, was remembered with a gift of £7. 
And each portion of his estate was entailed on the survivors, if any 
child died.

1703, and Jonathan, June 1st, 1708. 

William^ son of Richard' Lyon, had Nathaniel, baptized Sept. 9th, 
1694; William^ Feb. 16th, 1698; Benjamin, Sept. 8th, 1700. Eunice, 
baptized Sept. 1st, 1776, and Tabitha, Jan. 22d, 1720, were probably 
children of William.^ 

SamueP, son of Richard' Lyon, of Fairfield, and Greenfield Hill, 
had a wife, Susanna. He had Samuel, James, John and Margaret 
baptized Mar. 12th, 1704; Abigail, May 12th, 1706; Ephraim, Sept. 27th, 
1708; Anne, Aug. 6th, 1710; Jeremiah, April, 1713. 

Joseph,^ son of Richard' Lyon, had wife Mary, nee Jackson. He 
had Joseph, baptized July 28th, 1695; David, June 27th, 1697. This 
family settled at Pequonock, Greenfield Hill, and Green Farms. 

Ephraim' Lyon, baptized Sept. 27th, 1708, son of Samuel Lyon and 
grandson of Richard' Lyon, had a son Ephraim, born 1737, who was 
a soldier in the War of Independence. Later this second Ephraim* 
was a lawyer in the town of Ashford, Conn. He married Esther 
Bennett, and died 1798. Among the nine children of Ephraim and 
Esther Lyon was Amasa Lyon, born Nov. 19th, 1771, died April 11th, 
1842. He married Keziah Knowlton and among their nine children was 
Nathaniel Lyon (General Nathaniel Lyon), born July 14th, 1818, who 
died at the battle of Wilson's Creek, Missouri, Aug. 10th, 1861.* 



*Dr. Woodward, in his Life of General Lyon, states that Ephraim 
Lyon of Ashford was the third Ephraim in lineal descent, but does not 
trace his lineage more definitely, although he states that he was of Scotch 
descent. He served May 5 to Nov. 1, 1758, under Capt. Jedediah Fay, of 
Ashford, in the French and Indian war. He married in Ashford in 1762; 
wife Esther Bennett: the births of his nine children are recorded in Ash- 
ford, indicating- continuous residence there from 1763 to 1784, and he died 
there 1798. There were living in Ashford descendants of William Lyon, of 
Roxbury; it is natural to suppose that Ephraim was also of that family, 
and this the Woodstock Lyons firmly believe. It is hardly possible that 
the Ephraim Lyon of Fairfield, wife Ann Adams, appointed Lieutenant In 
a company of militia in North Fairfield in May. 1774 (Conn. Colonial Rec), 
and who was a militia captain, called out in the New Haven alarm July, 
1779, was the Ephraim of Ashford. — A. B. L.

SOME NEW WORLD LYONS 41 

During the American Civil War, Sidney S. Lyon, Major of Engi- 
neers, the father of the writer, made the acquaintance of Gen. 
Nathaniel Lyon. Their name called for genealogical exchanges, and 
kinship was established. Each had the identical tradition, viz: 
Three brothers Lyons of Glen Lyon in Perthshire, Scotland, at the time 
of the Civil War in England were soldiers in Cromwell's army. The 
day of the execution of Charles I. these three were on guard at the 
scaffold before the Banqueting House at Whitehall on Jan. 30th, 1648, 
and witnessed the regicide. Immediately after the execution they fled 
to the Colonies. One brother settled in Conncticut, one went to New 
York and the third removed to New Jersey. Dr. Woodward, who 
some years ago wrote the "Life of Gen. Nathaniel Lyon," must have 
obtained from a brother or a sister of the dead soldier that the 
Ashford Lyon family was descended from Scottish ancestry. A be- 
lief is entertained that Thomas, Richard and Henry Lyon descended 
in a direct line from the Master of Glamis. Douglas's Peerage gives 
but one son of Sir Thomas Lyon, John Lyon of Auldbar, who served 
as heir Aug. 6th, 1608, and died without issue. He may have had sons 
and grandsons of whom no record is preserved, soldiers who were 
slain in the Civil War or fled into life-time exile beyond the sea. 
But there were other branches of the Lyon family of Scotland. 

When John Lyon, eighth Lord Glamis made an entail of his 
estates of Glamis, Towndyce, and Baky in Forfarshire; Cullen, Butter- 
gask, Longforgard and Inchture in Perthshire; Bellelvic, Ardendracht, 
CoUistown, Coustertown and Drumgowen in Aberdeenshire, besides 
himself and the male heirs of his body, he gave those eligible through 
lineage, as Thomas Lyon, his brother; John Lyon of Haltown of Esse; 
James Lyon of Easter Ogill; John Lyon of Culwalogy, and the male 
heirs of their bodies respectively, which failing, to his own nearest 
heirs, male, whatsoever bearing the name and arms of Lyon, by 
Charter dated 23rd of April, 1567. This was but eighty-one years 
before Thomas, Richard and Henry Lyon appeared in Connecticut in 
1648. They belonged to one of these flve families descended from John 
de Lyon, Feudal Baron of Fortevoit, but the name of their Scottish 
ancestor is lost out of tradition. But such research as has gone into 
the compilation of the "Lyon Memorial" may disclose the names that 
will connect the New World Lyons of New England, New York and 
New Jersey, with the Old World Lyons of England and Scotland. 

To return to the third of the Lyon brothers from Glen Lyon, 
Henry Lyon, to outline his eighteen years in New England.

In 1639 a company of religious disputants, a split-off from 
Wethersfield Church, joined with a few families from other places, 
fifty-four souls in all, bought a tract of land down on the coast of 
Long Island Sound, and planted Milford. Thomas Tibabls, who, 
tradition says, led the party through the Connecticut wilderness, 
selected a favorable site, and the new settlement was destined to 
become a sea-port. Ships, after a long ocean voyage came up the 
Sound and dropped anchor in the safe harbor below the Mill dam, to 
land home-seekers and supplies, and after a time a ship industry 
added to the prosperity of the hamlet, and sloops were built for the 
long-shore traffic. 

It is not positively known just who were the first comers at 
Wepowang. Lambert's "History of New Haven County" gives a list 
of Milford Planters, with numbers of home lots attached said to 
have been made Nov. 29, 1639. There are sixty-six names on this list, 
but there are no records at Milford to bear out the impression this 
would give that the company from Wethersfield and neighborhood 
settlements was several hundred strong. An unmarried man was a 
suspicious stranger and the annual baby did more for the Connecticut 
census than the emigrant additions to the population. Of the fifty-four 
souls that trudged through the wilderness to the new purchase, two- 
thirds of the foot-tired travelers were women and children.

Lambert's list was certainly made from the town plat drawn at a 
subsequent period. The men that bought Wepowang and took posses- 
sion of their purchase in August, were not keeping a Town Book in 
November. Cabin-building, stockade-building and how to provide for 
the nearing winter were the only matters that engaged these work- 
weary folk in an Indian land. 

The original records have been sacredly preserved, and the present 
Town Book is an accurate transcription from the worn, time-browned 
records begun in 1649, which is the earliest date shown on any Milford 
document, outside of the Church records, a positive proof that a 
Town Book was a long-felt want before a book appropriate for this 
purpose was obtained. 

Newark could not procure a book to record lands and town 
expenses for several years after the Passiac settlement was planted, 
which was fully thirty years after the first Wepowang cabin was under 
roof. The cost was great, and money scarce and these London-bound 
volumes were not to be had by every hamlet within a month's journey 
of Boston. 

Someone may have had an Ink-horn, geese were common fowl, and 
quills were the pens of long ago, but the fly-leaf of a Bible was per- 
haps the only bit of paper at hand to serve as a register of mar- 
riages, births and deaths. Each man stepped off his own town lot.

SO many paces to the acre, and established his own lines by witness 
trees till Robert Treat, the young surveyor, got the leisure to inspect 
imaginary metes and bounds and drove corner stakes, as witness 
stones, for the several planters, who need be none too particular if his 
homestead tract contained more than 300 square rods. They were so 
few, and as far as the eye could reach was theirs. When William 
Fowler built a grist mill on the banks of the little river he was 
given thirty acres of land and perpetual use of the stream. And why 
not, in this miles wide country that God had given to the chosen of 
Israel, just as he gave Canaan to the hosts of Moses. 

The General Court, November 24, 1640, changed the name of the 
settlement to Milford, a befitting designation when mills were few and 
far between. Then it was a decent supercedence of an ungodly Indian 
appellation. 

To this growing community, in 1648, came Henry Lyon, the 
youngest of the three brothers from Glen Lyon. He was a young man, 
born, perhaps about 1625. When he came to die in 1703, he had minor 
children and his will excites no suspicion of approaching senility. A 
generous and cordial welcome must have been accorded to the stranger 
Scot, a Round-head soldier. 

He brought the verification of the rumor of terrible happenings at 
home, and the tales he told to his breathless listeners were tremen- 
dous National facts that make the most astounding pages in English 
history. 

Robert Treat, the chief amongst them, the first town clerk, the 
first Justice of the Peace, was doubtless the foremost interrogator. 
The vital question was the supremacy of the Parliament over the 
Colonies. Nature, as a birthright, had given this man the qualifica- 
tions of a soldier and a statesman, which he proved when he led the 
Milford militia at the battle of Bloody Brook, and as Governor of 
Connecticut, when Sir Edmund Andros essayed to wrest from the 
Province the charter, which Wadsworth saved, under the cover of 
darkness, and concealed in the historic oak. 

He had neither name nor fame when Henry Lyon reviewed the 
recent past and impending possibilities. The spirit of civil inde- 
pendence was the soul of Puritanism. The Power that created the 
heaven and the earth, and divided the waters that were under the 
firmament, had placed a raging sea between a monarchal despotism 
and those who were capable of self-government. The Great I Am 
was their liege Lord, and the Bible their Magna Charta. Hope looked 



SOME NEW WORLD LYONS _ 45 

for a riddance of King-supremacy and King-oppression. Their head- 
ship was a governor who should proceed from their midst, provided 
out of all the people. The throne was toppled and the crown broken 
asunder. Their hearts beat time to the measures of Miriam's song, 
and the song of Deborah. They were out of bondage, and Sisera had 
perished! 

Cromwell and Hampden were the heroes of heroes to these 
democratic, theocratic folk of Milford. But there were minor heroes, 
units in the tremendous sum of Puritan effort and Puritan achieve- 
ment. Here was one who had stood below the scaffold when the Stuart 
tyrant paid the debt of his sins against the people. So they bade the 
young man to stay with them, to share all their rights and privileges, 
to build himself a house, and to bring up a family. The Town Book 
shows "That Henry Lyon hath for his home lott three acres, be it 
more or less, bounded with a highway west, the comon east, John 
Stream s's south, Thomas Hines' north," and that "Henry Lyon hath 
two acres of meadow, bee it more or less, lying in the Calves Pen 
Meadow, bounded with the comon north and west, with John Stream's 
east, and Thomas Hines' south." 

The first mention of Henry Lyon at Milford is in the records of 
the First Church. Among "Persons added to the church, Feb. 24th, 
1649," was Henry Lyon. This was during the ministry of the Rev. 
Peter Prudden, who was ordained pastor April 18th, 1640, and con- 
tinued in that office till his death in July, 1656. It was a twelvemonth 
between the flight from London an'd this admission to Milford Church. 
Church fellowship was a requisite qualification for a person who 
desired to be Free Planter. But it was the age of Old Testament 
religion, when not to be a member in good standing meant social 
ostracism. And Henry Lyon kept the faith from the day he entered 
Milford meeting house in 1649 till he entered into everlasting rest at 
Newark, 1703. 

He built a home on the land set out to him by the Proprietors' 
Committee, for he not only retained his "home lott," beyond the 
required two years, but other estate was partitioned to him: 
"Henry Lyon hath for his Second Division of Land three acres and a 
halfe, and for his halfe Division of Land one acre and three roods, and 
to Equall it to other Land one Rood and twelve pole, in all five acres 
and a halfe, and twelve pole, bee it more or less, lying on bare hill 
bounded with a highway Bast, with John Streams' North, with the 
Comon West, with Thomas Hines' South. Also for satisfaction to 



46 LYON MEMORIAL 

Equall his meadow, he hath halfe an acre, be it more or less, lying in 
the Calves Pen Meadow — bounded with a creek north, and west with 
the Comon, and Thomas Hines' east, with Richard Piatt's south." (Note 
this halfe acre of meadow and twelve pole of upland on bare hill is 
not to be charged with rates). 

As with the home lot, there is no date to show when Henry Lyon 
became owner of these additional acres lying on the bare hill, too 
poor to be charged with rates. His sojourn at Milford was so short he 
had no prominence in its public affairs, therefore it is difficult to out- 
line his course in the little seaport, the very world's end to a soldier 
and an exile in a land of exiles. There must have been bright and 
handsome girls among the daughters of the Milford planters, and the 
bachelor Scott could have found a wife, as was expected of him, 
if he had gone a-wooing. Fairfield was not far off, and it had other 
attractions besides being the place of in-dwelling of Richard Lyon — 
attractions that dimmed the eyes of Henry Lyon to the graces of the 
Milford damsels, and dulled his ears to the sweetness of their singing, 
at the wheel and at the loom. 

To that plantation, about 1650, came Mr. William Bateman. He 
had been in the colonies for some years, probably came in the fleet 
with Winthrop in 1630. It is said that he was entitled to a coat of 
arms. At Boston he took the oath, and was made freeman on May 
18th, 1631. Seven years later he was at Charlestown, and may have 
removed to Chelmsford before coming to Fairfield. Mr. Bateman had 
a daughter Elizabeth, who must have been born after her parents 
left England. When Henry Lyon went to visit his brother he met 
the Bateman family, and in May of 1652 he married Elizabeth Bate- 
man. On the 4th of May of that year he was granted a homestead 
and home lot at Fairfield. It is not probable that he took his young 
wife to Milford to live in the log cabin on home lot number 26 in 
the Calves Meadow at the foot of the bare hill. 

On May 28th, 1654, he was dismissed from Milford Church to 
Fairfield Church, thus severing his connection with his first home in 
America; a Milford planter for so brief a time he left no record of 
his name there but his admittance to the church, February 24th, 1649, 
the description of lands he received, and his dismissal to Fairfield 
Church, May 28th, 1654. His brothers, Thomas and Richard Lyon, 
are mentioned in connection with the last record. Henry Lyon is 
the only Lyon who lived at Milford previous to the emigration to 
New Jersey in 1666. 



SOME NEW WORLD LYONS 47 

In addition to the home lot southwest of Sealey's Neck, Henry 
Lyon acquired other property at Fairfield. February 4th, 1654, he 
purchased of William Bateman a home lot and dwelling house, lying 
northeast of the New Town Square. Five or six children were bom to 
him in the house southwest of Sealey's Neck and in the house near 
the New Town Square. In the latter house his father-in-law must 
have died, a widowed man who lived with his only daughter. William 
Bateman, in his will, dated March 24th, 1656, admitted to probate 
October 20th, 1658, says in part: "That for what estate shall be left 
after my decease The one-half I bequeath unto my son, Thomas Bate- 
man, now of Concord, And the other half that Doth remayn I give unto 
my Son-in-law, Henry Lyon, except five pounds which I give Unto 
my grandchild, Joseph Middlebrooke, to be payd when he cometh to 
eighteen years of age. And in case the seyd Joseph Middlebrooke 
Shall Dye before he come to the Sayd Age, then my Will is that the 
sayd five pounds Shall be equally Divided between my sayd sonn 
Thomas and Henry. 

"And further my will is that my Sayd Sonn Henry Lyon shall be 
my executor of this my last will and testament." 

This document gives proof of the esteem and confidence Henry 
Lyon inspired in the father of his wife. 

There is no baptismal record of any child of Henry Lyon and 
Elizabeth Bateman in their old Connecticut home. When Fairfield 
was burned by the British in 1779 many pages of Fairfield history 
were effaced forever. The names of the children of Richard Lyon's 
sons, and the children of Thomas Lyon's son, John Lyon, appear on 
the Church Book, the earliest date of a Lyon baptism being that of 
Nathaniel Lyon, September 9th, 1694, a son of William Lyon and a 
grandson of Richard Lyon. 

Elizabeth Bateman, wife of Henry Lyon, was not admitted to Mil- 
ford Church, and her eldest son, Thomas Lyon, was not christened by 
the Rev. Peter Prudden. Her first and last sojourn there, if she was 
ever there at all, was during the preparation for the removal to New 
Jersey. The little ships that carried the Passaic Pilgrims may have 
anchored at different points along the Long Island Sound to pick up 
families with their goods and their cattle. 

For eighteen years Henry Lyon had lived in Connecticut, four 
or five years at Milford and thirteen or fourteen years at Fairfield. 
Treat may have talked him into making a change with the other 
prognostic planters of New Haven Colony, incensed by the absorption 



48 LYON MEMORIAL 

of their lesser commonwealth by the stronger colony. It was an almost 
desperate undertaking. A transplanted people did not always prosper. 
They were leaving known vexations and trials for unknown troubles 
and perils. Sadness and uncertainty made a raven's nest in the hearts 
of the home-seekers. First one black thought, then another, croaked 
a lament or a foreboding. Home was the dear habitation they had 
forsaken for a shelter of logs that were yet to be hewn. They were 
leaving beloved ones for a life-long absence. Every new settlement 
was a place of graves. The heroism of political conviction sustained 
the men. But the women and children wondered how one King couI3 
differ from another, stilly complaining to themselves of the robbery 
committed against them in this separation from kindred and friends 
and in the loss of their own familiar dwelling. And the salt waves 
mocked these helpless creatures of unuttered mourning, of little under- 
standing of Human Progress in the Divine Scheme. 



HENRY LYON OF NEWARK 



Cromwell's death was calamitous to the peace of mind of the 
people of the colonies. Charles I. was too harassed with home troubles 
for a harsh and arbitrary supervision of his trans-Atlantic subjects, 
and the Lord Protector was too wise in his government to disturb the 
communal rule in the Puritan Settlements over sea. The accession 
of Charles II. brought dismay to every town and plantation in New 
England. Long ago the loyalty of the absentee English, Scotch, and 
Welshmen had ceased to be a subservient habit of necessity. Their 
children had never been taught to serve and reverence any king but 
Jehovah God. A locust-cloud blackened their horizon. Nothing but 
the direst tribulation was to be expected from a sovereign whose 
memory of the regicide was attended with a meditated avengement 
of the murder of his royal father, to be visited upon all connected 
with the crime, directly or indirectly, and upon their children and 
grandchildren. They knew their own helplessness. A strenuous con- 
science makes no compromises. Most reluctantly these aggressive 
republicans, in 1661, acknowledged the Stuart "to be the lawful king 
of Great Britain, France and Ireland, and all other territories thereto 
belonging." But it was traitorous submission. When a price was 
set upon the heads of Goffe and Whalley, New Haven and Milford 
received the Roundhead Generals as their very own, when Edward 
Whalley was Cromwell's cousin and Hampden's cousin, and William 
Goffe's wife, Whalley's daughter, was Cromwell's kinswoman. A 
migratory impulse beset the apprehensive planters, and measures were 
taken to find a new home. But a secret negotiation with the Dutch 
authorities ended without results. This was resumed in 1663, after 
Governor John Winthrop, Jr., in 1662, through personal influence, had 
obtained a Royal Charter for the consolidation of the two colonies in 
Connecticut, without the knowledge and consent of New Haven, Mil- 
ford, Branford, Guilford and Stamford. These towns were in a fer- 
ment. Milford, in the end, advised by Robert Treat, accepted an 
inevitable where every male was a freeman, in the church or out of it. 
Branford would have "neither part nor lot" in these unrighteous con- 
ditions. 



50 LYON MEMORIAL 

This year, 1665, Philip Carteret arrived from England in the ship 
"Philip" to take possession of certain lands transferred by the Duke of 
York to Lords Berkeley and Carteret. Previous to this time, a company 
from Long Island had received a grant from Governor Nicholls of 
New York for a tract beyond Achter Col (a stretch of country back of 
the bay and south of Manhattan Island), and four families had set- 
tled at what is now the City of Elizabeth. The Englishman had come 
to stay, to develop an ambition of building up a petty kingdom of his 
own. Emigrants were desired to dispossess the savages and to people 
the fairest acreage on earth, and persuasive agents were sent to the 
New England Colonies with certain "concessions" bound to entice the 
New Haven Colony Congregationalists. Milford saw an answer-to- 
prayer opportunity for relief, and a committee, headed by Treat, went 
down to New Jersey on a tour of inspection. Several sites were con- 
sidered. But after an interview with Carteret, the site on the Passaic 
was selected, and the committee went home to report of the fine grass 
lands along the river, and of the pine forest between the Passaic and 
the Hackensack* . 

In the spring of 1666 several small vessels, bearing the first little 
band of Passaic Pilgrims, set sail from Milford harbor below Fowler's 
Mill for a new world to establish a lasting theocracy. They weathered 
the Hell Gate in safety, passed through New York Bay and Kill Van 
Kull, and entered the Passaic River, hope-elated by the sight of the 
"rich meadow land and the timber on the hills," eager to land their 
chattels and their kine and begin life anew under free and happy con- 
ditions. But it was not that day that Lieut. Samuel Swaine's daughter, 
Elizabeth, set foot on Jersey soil, the first woman colonist to leave the 
ship. 

Under the "concessions" the lands were to be taken up by war- 
rants from the Governor. This was a clear title, if Treat had chosen 
to think so, as red men's immemorial rights to planting grounds and 
hunting grounds were seldom respected. He must have talked of a 
quit-claim from the aboriginal owners, for Carteret gave the Puritan 
of exact conscience a letter to the Sachem which was supposed would 
give peaceable and immediate possession to the tract. The paleface 
intruders were warned off by hostile demonstrations, and made a hur- 
ried retreat to their ships without attempting to parley with the In- 
dians. A messenger was sent to the Governor, and Carteret sent Sam

HENRY LYON OF NEWARK 61 

Edsal up from Bergen Neck to interpret at a pow-pow and arrange a 
second purchase of the lands, if Treat and his company chose to pay 
twice for their plantation. The Captain and several of the Milford 
men went up the Hackensack for a conference with the dusky pro- 
prietors. 

Treat left an account of the transaction: "One Perro laid claim to 
the said Passaic lands which is now called Newark, and the result of 
our treaty was that we obtained of a body of said Indians to give us 
a meeting at Passaic, and soon after they came, all the proprietors, viz., 
Perro and his kindred with the Sagamores that were able to travel — 
Oraton being very old, but approved of Perro's acting, and then we 
acted by the advice, order and approbation of the said Governor (who 
was troubled for our sakes), and also our interpreters, the said 
Governor approving of them [one John Capteen, a Dutchman, and 
Samuel Edsal] and was willing and approved that we should purchase 
a Tract of Land for a Township." 

The following is the Bill of Sale: 

"July 11, 1667. Wee the Indians Wapamuk, Wamesane, Peter, Cap- 
tamin, etc., doe sell, alienate, make over and confirm all our Rights, 
Titles and Interest of us, our heirs and successors forever, unto the 
said Lands to Mr. Obediah Bruen, Mr. Samuel Kichell, Michael Tomp- 
kins, John Brown and Robert Denison, townsmen and agents for the 
English Inhabitants of Passayak, to have, hold and dispose of without 
claim, Let or Molestation from ourselves." 

For this land, which extended to the Orange Mountains, the 
settlers from Connecticut agreed to give "50 double hands of powder, 
100 bars of lead, 20 axes, 20 coats, 10 guns, 20 pistols, 10 kettles, 10 
swords, 4 blankets, 4 barrels of beere, 10 paire of breetches, 50 knives, 
20 bowes, 850 Fathoms of Wampum, 2 ankors of Licquers or something 
equivalent, and 3 trooper's coats." 

Gold and silver they had none. In a traffic of exchange of articles 
the "red devils" got so many weapons and so much ammunition for so 
many acres of meadow, woods and uplands. While the negotiation 
was in progress with the deliberate tribes, the first town meeting of 
Newark was held on board one of the small ships anchored in the har- 
bor. When the Milford men met together with the agents sent from 
Guilford and Branford, to ask on behalf of their undertakers and 
selves with reference to a township or allotments, "It was agreed 
that the Connecticut emigrants would form one town, if consent was 
received, between this and the last of October next issueing, according 



52 LYON MEMORIAL 

to fundamentals mutually agreed upon; do desire to be of one heart 
and consent, through God's blessing with one hand they may endeavor 
to carry on spiritual concernment, also civil and town affairs." At a 
meeting in Branford the two fundamental agreements were framed 
and signed. Its authors may have been the Rev, Abraham Pierson and 
Mr. Jasper Crane, one the minister and the other the captain of the 
Branford Colonists, "able men, men of truth" — a document where one 
may read between lines of the strong and godly stuff our theocratic 
forebears were made of: 

October 30th, 1666. 

"At a meeting touching the Intended design of many of the Inhabi-

54 LYON MEMORIAL 

It is doubtful if Henry Lyon Bfought his family with him the 
first year. He was in Connecticut in the spring of 1667, either win- 
tered at Fairfield or Milford, or returned to bring his wife and chil- 
dren to their new home in New Jersey, for "At a gathering at Derby 
to divide the land, John Brownell sold his right to Thomas Hone, who 
sold his right to Henry Lyon, who finally sold to Henry Botsford, 
whose name and right appears on the first map of ownership of home 
lot of 11/2 acres and upland of 4 acres." 

Lads of fourteen were included with adult males in land distribu- 
tions. Young Thomas Lyon's name appears among the Branford men 
as receiving home lot 23, and young Samuel Lyon's name appears 
among the Milford men as receiving home lot 39. 

Property was in abundance, and childhood was sadly abbreviated 
in a place where there was no school. In winter the children were 
mother-taught or father-taught to read the Bible. It was the only 
book possessed by most families, and to be familiar with the Laws 
and the Prophets, the Gospels and the Epistles was a liberal educa- 
tion. Play-time was a sinful waste of daylight to these religion-awed, 
task-weary boys and girls. 

Some of the planters were college-bred men (their minister, Rev. 
Abraham Pierson, was a graduate of Trinity College, Cambridge), and 
but few of them were untaught. They realized the importance of 
having their children, their sons especially, instructed in the rudi- 
ments. But after the stipend of eighty pounds was collected for the 
pastor there was no money to pay a schoolmaster, if these work-tired 
lads could be spared from farm labor. 

A sense of insecurity stayed with the planters, with their wives 
and children. The meeting-house was fortified against a sudden 
attack, and the men in the fields and the clearing went armed, and 
the "look-out" was a child that kept watch through the sowing and 
tilling and reaping, and while the fuel was cut for winter. They 
meant to keep faith with the tribes, and by fair dealing earned them- 
selves the after title of "The Doers of Justice." But constant nerve- 
trying, heart-trying vigilance went with their kindness to the savages. 
Intrusion could not be repulsed nor trespass punished. 

Carteret looked with disapproving suspicion on this friendly atti- 
tude with the Indians and remembered the ridiculous Bill of Sale. 
In buying the land outright from its natural owners, these Puritan 
planters might decline to pay the half penny per acre on their patents, 
which fell due on March 25th. When the time neared, a letter was 



HENRY LYON OF NEWARK 65 

sent to the Newarkers reminding tliem of their quit-rents to the pro- 
prietors. After an exciting town meeting, a dignified reply was 
returned to the Governor, "That they do hold and possess their Lands 
and Rights in the said Town, both Civil and Divine Rights as by 
their Legall purchase and Articles do shew. As for the payment of 
the half penny per acre for all our allotted Lands, according to our 
Articles and Interpretation of them, you assuring them to us. We are 
ready when the time comes to perform our Duty to the Lords and 
their assigns." 

It was decided at the town meeting "that Henry Lyon and others 
should take and receive every Man's Just Share and proportion of 
Wheat for his Land — the summer wheat at 4s. per Bus'l and the Winter 
wheat at 5s., according to the order and Time Perfixed to them to Bring 
it to Johnson's House before the day be over, or if they fail they are to 
double the quantity, which Corn the said Lyon and Johnson is tomor- 
row to Carry to Elizabeth Town, and made a tender Thereof to the 
Governor upon the account of the Lords Proprietors rent for the Land 
we make use of." 

Henry Lyon, Newark's first Treasurer, held the office for five con- 
secutive years, from 1668 to 1673. He was custodian of the public 
funds. It fell to him and Thomas Johnson, the first town constable, 
to receive the tax wheat of the planters, to measure each man's pro- 
portion as the sacks were emptied and to convey the wains to Elizabeth 
Town and deliver the grain to the Governor. There was exhilaration 
in the triumph of the first payment. But the public-spirit promptitude 
of the planters diminished considerably by the March of 1670, when 
at the Town Meeting preceding the 20th of that month, "It was agreed 
that Henry Lyon and Thos. Johnson shall goe to our Governor in 
Behalf of the Town, make a Tender to Him in Good Wheat of their 
Half Penny pr. Acre to Him for the Lords Proprietors, in like manner 
as they did the Last Years. Appointed in Case that he will Accept the 
same — that then they are fully empowered to give Notice by the 
Warners of the Town, for every one to Bring in his proportion of 
Corn to the Constable's House the Morning of the Day appointed by 
7 or 8 O'clk. That they may send it to their Governor, and take a 
discharge of Him for the same; and they are at least to Bring as 
Much as they did Last Year, and More if they see Cause.*" 

Under existing conditions Henry Lyon was a public slave rather 
than a public servant. Money was not expected in the settlement of 
debts and taxes. Produce stood for pence and pounds. To keep the 



66 LYON MEMORIAL 

records of the receipts and expenditures of a town of weights and 
measures was drudgery of mind and drudgery of body for the Town 
Treasurer. 

There were two rates in use, the minister's rate and the town 
rate. Mr. Pierson was to receive eighty pounds a year for his stipend, 
and a hundred and sixty pounds were required for the town expenses. 
One of the duties of the Constable was "to Collect and Gather up the 
Town Rate." Every planter was assessed according to the value of 
his estate. The expense of bringing their pastor from Connecticut had 
to be met, and Mr. Pierson's "living" assured. Then there was the 
rate "for the Payment of Every Man's Share of the Purchase." 
Where the coin was to come from must have perplexed every house- 
holder in Newark, abridged his sleep and made the discipline of denial 
the rule in every family there. 

Not one penny of the levy was for a salary for the treasurer or for 
any other town officer. Then, besides a lack of ad'equate emolument, 
there was the tyrannic supervision and comment of the town fathers, 
trying to the Scotch temper and Scotch pride of Henry Lyon. 

However, he was vested with a peculiar authority which made him 
one of the foremost at Newark. On September 10th, 1668, "It was 
agreed that Henry Lyon and others shall have the sole Power to 
hear every Man's reason for his or their Absence, Late Coming or dis- 
orderly departing or withdrawing from any of our Town Meetings, 
having Legall Warning thereto; and thereupon to Aquit them, or 
Return the names of them that they release not, but are by the order 
signed unto the Constable or such officer as the Town shall appoint 
to receive them, for the use of the said Town." To preserve propriety 
of speech and manner in the plantation assembly, and to visit personal 
wrath and personal penalty on the obstreperous Newark taxpayers 
gave the Treasurer a degree of despotic control over his fellow planters. 

In the third year of the New Jersey theocracy Mr. Camfield and 
Thomas Johnson were appointed as a "Committee to be adjoined to the 
Treasurer to heare and determine what and how much shall pass 
upon account of Men's demands for this year past. And it is to be 
agreed that all accounts before that hath not been allowed already shall 
not be admitted to account Hence Forth." Later another committee was 
formed "to make inquiry into the old Treasurer's Accounts, and what- 
they find to rectify if they can." 

"If any one stood indebted to the Town in the Treasurer's Book" 
beyond a certain number of days, that official was expected to inspect 



HENRY LYON OF NEWARK 67 

the smoke-house and barn of the delinquent planter to see if "he hath 
neither Meat nor Corn to pay." If there was neither bacon nor grain 
in store, then "the Treasurer should engage him in a Way to pay their 
Debt with Timber — but if they will not pay the reckon, then the 
Constable shall come with a Warrant to distract it." 

For five years Henry Lyon bore the heat and burden of the day as 
a public duty to the plantation he had helped to plant. He carried out 
the agreements of the Town Meeting with intelligent thoroughness, and 
his honesty was exact to the last kernel of the tax wheat. It was irk- 
some and arduous where there were planters who got behind-hand with 
their grain, and planters who had to be constable-compelled to bring 
in their proper proportion of the taxes. Such Newarkers as Mr. Jasper 
Crane, Thomas Huntington, Lieut. Samuel Swaine, Nathaniel Wheeler, 
Jonathan Sargeant, were prompt in their several tax obligations. But 
there were family-burdened widows, farmers who made but a half 
crop, and shiftless farmers who were many bushels short year after 
year. Furthermore, there were planters who must have disputed with 
the Treasurer over a shrinkage in quantity of their asserted full pro- 
portion of the rate, for in 1671 every man in the Passaic Plantation 
was compelled by a town meeting edict to bring his half bushel measure 
to Henry Lyon and Joseph Waters "to have them Tryed and Sealed 
when made fit with Mr. Crane's, which for the present is the Standard — 
they (Henry Lyon and Joseph Waters) shall have two pence per piece 
for sealing with the Small Town Brand, or N." 

This two pence was a poor compensation for wearisome days devoted 
to the common good of the community. Hard feeling had to be borne 
from those who would not pay and from those who could not pay. It 
took character to sustain a man under such difficult circumstances, the 
nicest tact or a dominant sternness. At any rate, Henry Lyon was 
chosen for his fitness from among the colonists of New Haven, Milford 
and Branford, for the same reason that he was made Keeper of the 
Ordinary. In the latter position, none but the most approved in any 
settlement was appointed to this authoritative responsibility. 

A mill and a church were built as indispensable edifices, one almost 
as necessary for the well-being of these Puritan folk as the other. 
As they increased in numbers and their limits extended, Robert Treat, 
who was their first Town Clerk, was directed to make an official record 
of all incorporated lands. The Treasurer was ordered "to do his best 
endeavor to procure a Book for the Records of the Lands." When 
and where Henry Lyon got it and what Newark paid for it is lost from 



58 LYON MEMORIAL 

local history, but if it took the best endeavor to secure it, books of 
this kind were not to be had in the Province of New Jersey. Doubtless 
it was imported from "home." At a Town Meeting July 5th, 1673, the 
following item became a matter of record: "Henry Lyon and others 
are chosen to agree with Mr. Delevall about Money to send a Mes- 
senger to England, and as they did agree with him, it should be 
paid by the Town." This very messenger may have brought over the 
"Book for the Records of the Lands;" if not some other trusty agent 
was dispatched on this errand by the Newark government. 

The Town Meeting planters depended on their Treasurer, expecting 
the miracle of whatsoever they required of him. His judgment must 
have been of great value. On March 30th, 1668-9, it was agreed that 
"the matter of Captain Bollen's Demands in his Letters shall be wholly 
referred and left with Mr. Camfleld, Swain, Henry Lyon, and Thomas 
Johnson, to act and do as they shall see Cause." 

Henry Lyon was Newark's first inn-keeper, too. The strangers 
within their gates were not all God-fearing men of peace. A stalwart 
presence was an outward visible importance for his second position. 
When it was recorded in the January of 1668 that "The Town hath 
chosen Henry Lyon to Keep an Ordinary for the entertainment of Trav- 
ellers and Strangers," and desired him to prepare for it as soon as he 
can, they might have added to the minutes of the meeting a brief 
summary of his especial qualifications for dealing with law-defying 
new-comers and keeping them in order. 

Hospitality had been imposed on, or it had its limits at Newark. 
It was to be a hostel "where they might be entertained so that it 
would not be necessary for the people to put themselves to the incon- 
venience of providing for the Comfort of those who were prospecting 
for a place for Settlement." 

Mistress Elizabeth Bateman Lyon must have sighed over the cares 
thrust upon her. The sanctity of her home was invaded and her young 
children were deprived of her watchful attention. But the helpmate 
of pioneer days was a selfless woman, not pampered with much cher- 
ishing, and her gravestone should have been marked, "She hath done 
what she could." 

Two years after Henry Lyon opened a public house, the "Town 
chose Thomas Johnson to keep an Ordinary in the town for the 
entertainment of strangers — prohibiting all others from selling any 
Strong Liquors by Retail under a gallon, unless in case of Necessity, 
and that by License from the Magistrate." 



HENRY LYON OF NEWARK 69 

It is certain that a money-making privilege once given to the 
Town Treasurer would not have been taken away from him in favor 
of the Town Constable. Wine may have been served as a table bever- 
age, but it is doubtful if brandy-drinking and rum-drinking went on in 
Henry Lyon's house. However, total abstinence was not a moral 
obligation with our God-serving ancestors, and there was no town ordi- 
nance against indulging in intoxicating drinks. Mr. Jasper Crane, a 
gentleman, the headship of the Passaic Pilgrims from Branford and 
New Haven, Treat's equal in importance in the community, the magis- 
trate of the town, destined to be president of the Town Court, and 
delegate time after time to the Provincial Assembly, was the next 
to profit by the sale of spiritous fluids. On February 28th, 1672, it 
became a part of the Newark records "that Mr. Jasper Crane having 
Liquors for six shillings a gallon, and one shilling and six pence a 
Quart, they paying wheat for it, hath Liberty to sell Liquors in the 
Town till the Country Orders alter it." Nothing was said in regard 
to selling in small quantities to be drank on the premises. 

It is to be presumed that the planters were temperate people, and 
the dram-drinking stranger was brought to decent moderation by the 
moral discrimination of Henry Lyon, Thomas Johnson and Mr. Jasper 
Crane. 

The contract to build the first church was awarded to Deacon 
Warde, Sargeant Richard Harrison and Edward Riggs, who bargained 
for the "sum of seventeen pounds to Build the same meeting-house 
36 feet square, with doors and windows, and Pine Boards at the Gable 
ends." But the money was not forthcoming and the sacred edifice 
was not begun before 1668. The floor was not laid till 1670, and in 
1678 the settlers agreed "that the meeting-house should be seated in 
convenient time for our Convenience and meeting together for God's 
worship." 

Did that pious congregation, every Lord's Day from 1670 to 1678, 
remain standing through the hours-long sermon of Preacher Pierson, 
the gray-haired fathers and mothers in Israel, men that had toiled 
without ceasing the six week days through, mothers of nursing babies, 
care-aged little ones and youths and girls that hacked a consumption 
cough, an irritating interruption from the text to the long-deferred — 
"and finally?" 

Maybe Henry Lyon's eldest daughter, Mary, who married John 
Ward, Jr., was one of these girls with a hectic flush on her fair 
cheeks, for her days were not long. 



60 LYON MEMORIAL 

The little community had struggled on for ten years, when it was 
voted at a town meeting in 1676 that "the Town's Men have Liberty 
to see if they can find a competent number of scholars, and accommo- 
dations for a schoolmaster within our Town." Those to whom this 
important business was entrusted were Samuel Kitchell, John Ward, 
Samuel Plum, Thomas Huntington, Joseph Waters, Azariah Crane and 
William Camp. One of this colonial school board was an ancestor of 
the writer, and a feeling of pride goes with the knowledge that Thomas 
Huntington was connected with the first educational movement in "Our 
Towne on the Passaick." But it was 1677 when the village fathers 
voted that "the Town's Men have liberty to compleat the Bargain with 
the School Master. They knowing the Town's mind." 

One of themselves took charge of the school, John Catlin, probably 
a lawyer by profession, for he was town attorney for two years. He 
may have taught the three Rs. to pupils of various ages, in day classes 
and night classes, till he and his wife, Mary, in 1684, sold their home 
lot, Number 11, of the Branford allotment, to Henry Lyon, and 
removed to Deerfield, where Mrs. Catlin and her sons, Joseph and Jona- 
than, were killed in the assault of the French and Indians, Feb. 29th, 
1704. 

None of Henry Lyon's children went to Catlin's school in that 
long-disappeared log bam, with a dirt fioor, to drone lessons in the 
common sing-song of shy maidens and bashful lads. Before the first 
term began the Lyon family had removed to Elizabeth Town, and 
shortly after the Dutch conquest Henry Lyon took the oath there, and 
rapidly became one of the leading men in political and commercial 
affairs. 

November 8th, 1675, he was a member of the General Assembly. 
February 4th, 1681, he was made one of the Judges of Small Causes. 
February 28th, 1681, he became a member of the Governor's Council. 
August 1st, 1681, he was appointed Justice of the Peace, which during 
the Colonial period was equivalent to that of Judge of the Supreme 
Court. December, 1682, he was appointed Commissioner to lay out 
and appoint all necessary highways, bridges, passages, landings and 
ferries for the County of Essex. November 26th, 1684, he was a 
Representative in the Council of the Governor. May 1st, 1686, his 
commission to the Judgeship. 

Furthermore he was one of the Town Associates and the fore- 
most in commercial enterprises. Scotch thrift, integrity and fore- 
eight had made his fortune. Besides having ISOi/g acres of land 



HENRY LYON OF NEWARK 61 

within, the limits of Newark, he owned 306 acres at Elizabeth Town. 
The ancestral habit of accumulating property was strong in him. 

*His house and home lot, containing 7 acres, was bounded east 
by Henry Morris, south by Hurr Thompson and north by a byway; 
also had 16 acres of upland adjoining the north site of his home lot, 
with Henry Morris on the east and Benjamin Parkhurst on the north; 
also 24 acres on the "Long Neck," a triangle between Benjamin 
Price, Sen., and Isaac Whitehead, Sen.; also 90 acres of upland "Lying 
by the Lyne of Elizabeth Town and Newark, having the boggy 
meadow on the east and unsurveyed land, the highway to Newark to 
go through it, since known as Lyon's Farms,f a part of the Borough of 
Elizabethtown; also 4 acres of meadow on the Elizabethtown creek; 
7 acres of boggy meadow on the "Cove"; 18 acres on the Bay, and 20 
acres on the creek, formerly old John Ogden's. March 13th, 1677-8, he 
purchased Vauquellin's house and grounds for £60. November, 1674, 
he purchased of John Martin, Captain Bollen's property. However, on 
May 1st, 1675, Henry Lyon and Elizabeth, his wife, of Elizabeth Town, 
sold to the Honorable Philip Carteret, Governor of the Provence of 
New Jersey, for a consideration of £30, a dwelling house formerly occu- 
pied in tenure of Captain James Bollen. 

The year before he had a peculiar transaction with Governor 
Carteret. "December 8th, 1674, Henry Lyon of Elizabeth Towne, Prov- 
ence of New Jersey, to Governor Philip Carteret of the same provence: 
A lease for four years of 2 acres of land within aforesaid towns. 
Consideration — said Henry Lyon to receive yearly 1,000 good and 
merchantable Bucks." 

A few years later we read that "in the 1699-1700 assignment of lots 
of 100 acres each, Henry Lyon received No. 174, Joseph No. 63, Natha- 
niel No. 95, Benjamin No. 84, and Ebenezer No. 66." 

Life must have been easier for Elizabeth Bateman Lyon than 
when she was mistress of Newark's first Ordinary. Servants were to 
be had, seventeenth century luxuries, and perhaps the London fashions. 
She lived to see her ambitious husband among the honored of the 



♦Hatfield's "History of Elizabethtown, New Jersey." 

tSubdivisions of the townships — "For a period of one hundred and 
twenty-eight years from the date of the original settlement the township 
remained undivided, the town laws and regulation and the authority of 
the magistracy extending over ^he whole area. At an early date, however, 
various hamlets and clusters of farm houses gradually sprang up in 
different localities. The facilities for navigation and the attraction of 
water privileges drew quite a number of early settlers to the banks of the 
Rahway River. Another group of planters, mostly of one family, gave 
the name to the neighborhood known as Lyons Farms." 



62 LYON MEMORIAL 

provence. Her older sons married early — courtships, weddings arid 
grandchildren were happy family happenings before her chair was 
put against the wall and the days went by without her. Violent grief 
was sinful self-indulgence to the Puritan way of thinking. The Scotch 
are stern-natured, and bear aflBiction with decorous resignation. The 
stricken husband was a church-going fatalist. Foreordination timed 
the last heart beat of every mortal and wrote the day and the hour with 
every name entered in the Life Book. 

His second marriage must have occurred in 1689 or 1690, for 
Mary and Dorcas, the second wife's daughters, were minors when their 
father wrote his will, 1702. No doubt she was a Newark woman and 
influenced her husband's return to the town he had helped to found. 
It was going home when he returned to the few remaining friends of 
the long ago, who had passed the fiftieth anniversary of their coming 
into the land the Lord God had given to His people of the New 
Haven colony. At Elizabeth Town his had been the largest subscrip- 
tion for the support of the pastor. Rev. Harriman. Nevertheless, he 
retained his church privileges at Newark, for July 24th, 1680, some 
years after his removal, it was voted "that Henry Lyon hath a right 
to, and shall have a seat in the meeting house, paying proportion, 
ably with his neighbors." 

He had fought the good fight from youth to age, and his time 
was shortening as a shadow when the noon nears. His first-born, 
Thomas, had died in 1694, and John had followed his elder brother. 
Nathaniel passed on in 1696. His fellow pilgrims, one by one, put out 
the candle of life to go to sleep, till but few were left of the comrades 
that climbed the hill of hope together. New friends are but favorite 
acquaintances. "Loving wife" Mary readily got her will. At Newark 
there were others of the long-gone who had New Haven, Branford 
and Milford recollections in common, and who could exchange mem- 
ories of Scotland and England. 

Great Britain had made some tremendous history since the three 
Lyon brothers took shipping for the New World. Cromwell had held 
thrall over the United Kingdom for nine years. The General of the 
Puritan hosts had broken the shackles of feudalism, and the emancipa- 
tion of all humanity had begun its slow progression toward liberty 
of conscience and liberty of speech. Charles II. had flittered away a 
regnal term of devil-delighting tyranny and profligacy. James II. had 
ended in the banishment and death of one who would be last of the 
Stuart dynasty. William of Orange and Mary had gone to their graves. 



HENRY LYON OF NEWARK 63 

Killiekrankie had shaken all Scotland. These remarkable epochs had 
left their imprint on human progress since the day those masked execu- 
tioners decapitated the King. The colonies had grown in numbers 
and riches and promise. There was easier breathing when William 
and Mary reigned, and since Anne was queen, but the espionage was 
felt as of old. These colonial yeomen who had been Roundhead 
soldiers were English subjects, and, as such, discretion became their 
tongues. But in private their voices were loosened and Naseby and 
Dumbar experiences, and what they knew of the secreting of Goffe 
and Whalley was recounted in excited whispers. It did not do to 
gossip of the Great Civil War and of the London culmination of the 
trial and execution of Charles Stuart. But in the sanctuary of home, 
Thomas and Richard and Henry Lyon told their children of how they 
had been soldiers in Cromwell's army; of how they were on guard 
before the scaffold at Whitehall and witnessed the regicide, and of 
their flight when the historical tragedy was consummated. 

This impressive tradition, and that the three brothers were Lyons 
of Glen Lyon in Perthshire, Scotland, is common to the broad-scattered 
descendants of Thomas, Richard and Henry Lyon. The Connecticut, 
the New York and the New Jersey branches have preserved the 
knowledge of their Scottish origin. 

General Nathaniel Lyon and Major Sidney S. Lyon, men of broad 
intelligence and flawless integrity, accepted these traditions. Their 
ancestors were Lyons of Glen Lyon, and the presence of Thomas, Rich- 
ard and Henry Lyon at the execution of Charles L was made authentic 
by oral transmission from father to son in the three direct lines, 
widely divided by time and place. Richard Lyon's great-great-great- 
grandson spoke for the traditions of the Fairfield Lyons. The descend- 
ants of Thomas Lyon of Westchester County, New York, gave their 
origin as Scottish to the historians, Baird and Bolton. James Lyon 
of Ohio brought these family traditions across the mountains when 
he came from Lyons Farms with his wife and children, 1791. Pride 
of birth was innate in his grandson, my father, a deep-in consciousness 
of race never mentioned save in some fire-lit talk when his thoughts 
reached back into the past, and he told his children of the three young 
Scots from Glen Lyon, and the part they played in the terrible drama 
of 1648. 

In his later Newark days, Henry Lyon must have related his Old 
World reminiscences to his two young children and his grandchildren, 
for the old grow confidential with the young, getting sympathy and 



64 LYON MEMORIAL 

comprehension from minds unoccupied with personal act and personal 
purpose. 

Benjamin' Lyon was ten years old when his venerable grandfather 
Henry Lyon, the emigrant, sicliened, put his temporal and spiritual 
affairs in order, then died. Benjamin' Lyon was the grandfather of 
James' Lyon of Ohio. There is no break in the transmission of the 
tradition that gave the nationality of Thomas, Richard and Henry 
Lyon and their connection with the regicide. 

Henry Lyon had lived two separate and eventful lives, but his 
years were not much beyond the allotted time of man when Elizabeth- 
town and Newark were called upon to mourn for one who had been 
a leader among them since the landing of the colony from Connecticut 
in 1666. 

Biblical longevity was not unusual for an iron constitution that 
had withstood the toil and troubles of pioneer young manhood. If he 
was twenty-five when he appeared at Milford in 1648, he was not 
yet eighty when Elizabethtown and Newark assembled to do honor 
to the dead. One of the mighty had fallen. The long eulogistic 
sermon above this coffin, and the interment in the old burying ground 
of the founders of Newark must have been remembered as a local 
happening of impressive importance. But of the many that followed 
Robert Treat and Jasper Crane to plant "our Towne upon the Pas- 
eayak" there is none whose grave can be located but that of my 
ancestor, Nathaniel Wheeler, of the Milford colonists, in the ancient 
Presbyterian cemetery in Orange. God's acre at Newark was "vacated," 
and the time-worn stones that marked the last resting-place of the his- 
toric dead removed and destroyed. 

The "Lyon Memorial" will be a lasting monument to Henry Lyon 
of Milford, Thomas and Richard Lyon of Fairfield, and their kindred: 
William Lyon of Roxbury, Peter Lyon and George Lyon of Dorchester, 
and of every descendant of these "first-comers" enrolled in this book. 

Of Henry Lyon's personality nothing is known. His life describes 
the man as one of physical and mental vigor, and one of physical 
and moral bravery. He was of "good understanding and memory" 
when he wrote his will — here given in full, that his posterity may know 
him through his own words: 

"Whereas I, Henry Lyon, Senior of Newark, in ye provence of 
East New Jersey being weak in body yet of good understanding and 
memory — Do make this my Last Will & Testament (hereby making

"Loving friend, Mr. John Treat," was the son of the Captain of 
the Milford Company. In 1672, Robert Treat returned to New England, 
but was not dismissed from the Church of Christ at Newark to Milford 
Church till 1675. May 11th, 1665, he was commissioned Captain of the 
Milford Militia, and in King Philip's War, was Commander-in-Chief of 
the Connecticut Troops. 

In 1676 he was Deputy Governor, and in 1683 he was Governor 
of Connecticut and served in that capacity for fifteen years. His son, 
John Treat, Esq., was "a Justice to Keep the Peace in the County 
of Essex." 

In 1709 he was Representative of Essex in the Assembly when one 
qualification was 1,000 acres of land and £500 in personal estate. 

Of the witnesses of the will, Zopher Beach was of the second 
emigration, but Joseph Johnson (he beat the drum, morning and 
evening in the town in 1688) was the son of Constable Thomas Johnson 
who helped to measure the half bushels of tax wheat when Henry Lyon 
was first town Treasurer of Newark. Abraham Pierson was the 
grandson of the Rev. Abraham Pierson, the beloved pastor, who, with 
Jasper Crane, brought the Branford families to the Passaic settle- 
ment. 

Loving wife Mary, must have been as a beloved and dutiful 
daughter to her husband in the time of his infirmity. But while he 
waited for the Christ, the other, the wife of his youth, was the 
thought in his heart. He was back in Fairfield days in his Passaic

our best deeds be prompted by the never-dying characteristics of our 
fore-mother, this Colonial gentlewoman, just as our family strength of 
purpose, moral uprightness and religious tendency are heritages from 
that tried and true Scot of Glen Lyon, our fore-father, Henry Lyon of 
Newark.

LYONS FARMS. 



Midway between the cities of Elizabeth and Newark, the two oldest 
English settlements in New Jersey, lies a small hamlet of nearly equal 
age, which for more than two hundred years has had 

"a name of its own 

and a certain use in the world no doubt" 

Lyons Farms, so named from Henry Lyon and his sons, whose 
plantations, acquired by initial associate rights or by early purchase, 
covered the greater part of this area. In early history, in manners 
and customs and civic life, Lyons Farms simply formed a part of the 
larger communities on whose overlapping borders it was situate. 
Having access to the sea and the world of trade only through the 
towns, it has remained true to its name, an agricultural community, 
scarcely doubling its population, while year after year its sons have 
gone forth, some into the cities, more as pioneers and up-builders of 
the West. Bonds, Meekers, and Lyons were the first settlers. They 
and their fellows were of Puritan stock; men of sturdy character, 
of strict principles, broadly intelligent, and God-fearing. Their com- 
munal ideal was a theocracy, administered by the democratic town- 
meeting. Lyons Farms was a bit of transplanted New England, and 
long remained true to type. 

The tract East of the trap ridge of the Orange Mt. is a drift deposit 
of shale, gravel, sand and yellow clay. Towards Elizabeth the land 
slopes gradually to sea-level, forming "the plain." Nearer Newark 
the drop is more abrupt with steep, rounded hills, with gullies and 
depressions, some having no outlet, all formed by the swirling waters 
of a geologic era. In some of these pockets the vegetable matter accu- 
mulating through the ages has found the right conditions for con- 
version into peat. Lyons Farms has several acres of peat bog or "turf 
meadow," mostly on a Lyon tract. In the first part of last century, 
apprehensive of the exhaustion of the wood supply, the people of this 
section dug turf, burning this rather smoky fuel in their "ten plate 
stoves." Eastward of Lyons Farms lay the great marsh, a mile long, 
known from earliest times as the Cove, with its sluggish stream, the 



70 LYON MEMORIAL 

upper waters of Bound Creek (all now converted into a beautiful lake) ; 
a neck of low upland, and then the broad salt marshes to Newark 
Bay, 

On Sunday, Sept, 6th, 1609, a boat's crew from Henry Hudson's 
Half Moon, anchored at Sandy Hook, passed through the Narrows and 
thence West through the kill into the broad but shallow waters of 
Newark Bay, manifestly not the sought for passage to the Pacific. 
From the forest girt and sedgy shores came "very sweet smells," 
uncontaminate of factory smoke and oil refineries; and westward 
across the wide stretch of salt meadows their eyes rested on the fair 
hills of Newark and Lyons Farms. 

Fifty years passed before a settlement was made in this Achter 
Kol, rear bay region. Negotiations between certain English of Long 
Island and the Dutch were held up by Gov. Stuyvesant's unwilling- 
ness to concede the full measure of local self-government demanded. 
When in 1664 the English supplanted the Dutch, Gov. Nicolls favored 
the enterprise, giving all desired assurances. At once representatives 
of the new colony met certain Indian sagamores on Staten Island, 
and purchased from them a large rectangular tract, bounded South by 
the Raritan River, East by the Sound and the Bay as far North as 
"the first river which setts westward,*" and to run inland for a dis- 
tance double the length of its East or shore line. Entry was made 
that same Autumn, a settlement effected the following year, and on 
Feb. 19, 1665 (i. e. 1666 N. S.) we have an official list of 65 men taking 
the formal allegiance oath at Elizabeth, out of the "80 Associates" con- 
templated. 

The original house-lots, of six acres each, formed a cluster on 
either side of the Elizabeth River at the head of tide and of sloop 
navigation three miles from its mouth. In the common land each 
Associate held rights amounting to a single, a double, or a triple share, 
«.nd he received an allotment accordingly when the successive par- 
titions were made. The house lots stopped at Brackett's Brook (now 
vanished), where Salem Ave. forks from the Newark road, the "North 
End." Beyond this, between the road and the river on the West 
the stretch of level land was long held as a "Common." Further 
North, in the Lyons Farms region there were several early allotments. 

The success and prospects of the Elizabeth Colony at once led 
to the planting of a second and a third town. North and South. The

original settlers were not grasping of land; they had more than they 
needed, and they were eager for neighbors in the wilderness, but 
neighbors who should live in separate communities, self-contained and 
self-governing like themselves. Hence in 1666, with full welcome by 
the Elizabeth people there came into the Passaic, a body of settlers, 
some of them old neighbors and friends, expecting to take possession 
of the land on the basis of the Elizabethtown purchase. The local 
Indians denied any sale. Indian titles were largely factitious, and the 
original Chiefs had doubtless sold more than they had any power to 
convey. The Newark people were constrained to make a new formal 
purchase with the customary ankers of rum, lead, gunpowder, and 
wampum. The same year the Elizabethtown people sold the tract 
South of the Rahway River to a company from Massachusetts, settling 
the town of Woodbridge. These too later found it expedient to make 
further Indian payment to secure peaceful control of the Western part 
of their tract. Indian purchase quieted the natives; the significant 
title lay in the confirmation and grant of the first large tract by Gov. 
Nicolls, acting for the Duke of York, the King's Concessionary. 

Meanwhile the Duke had already himself conveyed away the terri- 
tory between the Hudson and the Delaware to Lords Berkeley and 
George Carteret, to be called henceforth New Jersey, after Carteret's 
native isle. In 1665, Captain Philip Carteret came out as Governor, 
and finding an accomplished grant, Indian sale, and settlement, with- 
out questioning its validity, he proceeded to purchase for himself 
Associate rights. The Lords divided their ownership into twenty-four 
"proprieties," which were soon sub-divided and were transferred like 
stock. Hence there was a double claim to ownership, — the source of 
century long friction and legal strife, extinguished at last only by the 
Revolution, the long land quarrel having had much to do with arousing 
a spirit of antagonism and alienation in this middle colony. The Propri- 
etary Government very soon demanded that those already settled should 
obtain patents for their lands from them, pay a trifling but significant 
annual quit-rent as fee-farmers, and so relinquish all claim to further 
land-partition, and hereafter purchase of the Proprietors. Wood- 
bridge submitted (1669), and Newark with reluctance (1675); Eliza- 
beth stubbornly resisted, took out patents only under threats of con- 
fiscation (1676) and never relinquished her claims to the undivided 
lands of the original purchase. There was dispute as to how far on 
the Bay Elizabeth's purchase really extended, this affecting the reach 
of her inland claim; dispute also as to the position and direction of 



72 LYON MEMORIAL 

the Elizabeth-Newark partition line. The tidal creek, called by tha 
Indians Weequahick, extending Westward to the upland and there 
issuing from the Cove, formed a natural boundary; and ever since 
Newark's settlement has been Bound Creek.* 

The Newark people in their Indian deed described the South 
bound of their purchase as Bound Creek "io f7ie head of the Gove," 
thence West to the foot of the mountain, the point aimed at being the 
mountain end, a course nearer Northwest. The description covered 
more than the Elizabeth people were willing to concede; in fact, they 
had already apportioned some land above such a line. Accordingly 
.we find commissioners appointed from each town, who amicably fixed 
upon a "little round hill" nearer the Northern end of the Cove, in 
line with the general course of Bound Creek in the meadows, to be 
forever the pillar of partition, the line to run thence Northwest to the 
mountain. (May 20th, 1668). This "Divident Hill," consecrated by 
prayer, we are told, is easily identified today; and on a strict North- 
west line from it is now a road, Lyons Ave., long ago opened on the 
"line," which is mentioned as a boundary of the lands on either side 
in patents of 1676. The position of the hill in relation to the Cove is 
clearly described also in the affidavit of an aged man in 1741 (Et. Bill). 
This determination of the line was duly entered in the town Records 
(Nk. Rec. p. 10). Oral tradition stated that there was an understand- 
ing that the Elizabeth people should assist those of Newark in acquir- 
ing the Neck between the Passaic and Hackinsack Rivers as a species of 
compensation. This project failing, Newark pressed her original claim 
(1675), and from that time down to 1754 there are notices of no less 
than seven attempts to settle the boundary. As late as the land 
partition of 1699, Elizabeth disposed of land adjacent to the old line 
at the mountain. Newark finally secured from the government in 
her town Charter of 1713 the coveted line, starting from "an oak 
tree in Joseph Lyon's field, above the head of the Cove." This 
point, later mistakenly associated with "Divident Hill," is recog- 
nized in the creation of Union Township out of Elizabeth in 1808. 
When Union County was set off from Essex in 1857, Essex retained a 
tract East of the Cove which was originally no part of Newark; while 
to the Westward the old town line of tradition was rehabilitated. 
The points assumed, however, whether from mistaken data or as 
representing some early compromise, produced a zig-zag. An effort by 



*It may be here recorded that In the early part of the last century 
this creek was navigable for "pettiaugers" with freight quite up to the 
Cove.

Essex County twenty years ago to rectify the frontier failed, the 
courts confirming the de facto line of 1857. See map. 

The Lyon tracts lay largely in and near this zone of dispute. 
Most of the lands of Henry Lyon and his sons can be identified. 
Patient research could locate nearly all. The obstacles are the loss 
of Elizabeth's first town book in 1719, the disappearance of Liber A 
of Essex deeds, and the fact that many early deeds were left unre- 
corded. 

Henry Lyon's Newark house lot was between Washington and 
High Streets, North of Kinney; in Elizabeth (1673-1700) his lot was 
on the Newark road near the "North End," and in that section he had 
several small farm tracts. Ebenezer had lands there, as well as some 
toward Rahway. Capt. David Lyon, 1745-1802, lived at the North End. 
John, Joseph, and Nathaniel in 1683 were living in Lyons Farms. 
In Elizabeth's bold partition of lands in 1699-1700, Henry, with his 
sons Benjamin, Ebenezer, Joseph, and Nathaniel, all appear as Eliza- 
bethtown Associates and receive 100 acres each: Henry, on the old 
line, West of Irvington; Benjamin on site of Fanwood; Ebenezer, 
center of Westfield; Joseph, a mile West of him; Nathaniel, a mil© 
Southeast of Netherwood. Besides the plantations indicated on the 
map, the Lyons had lands on Clinton Place and beyond Several tracts 
in the "Swamp," a mile or two Northwest. The patents from the 
Proprietors, now the earliest record, are for the first tracts of later 
date than the real acquisition. 

Lyons Farms was long famous for its apples. An orchard is 
mentioned in Henry Lyon's will (1702). Down to 1850 the crops were 
abundant and the several mills found ready market for cider and 
vinegar. Latterly on the original Henry Lyon tract the Wards have 
had notable success with pear culture. 

Before the days of machine-made footwear, the making of shoes 
was carried on by bodies of journeymen in small places. At Lyons 
Farms, among others, Benjamin' Lyon and his brother Abraham had 
large shops for shoe manufacture. In certain gardens today, are to 
be found the remains of the scrap heaps, not wholly decayed after a 
century.

Wagon and carriage making has been steadily carried on in a 
modest way, a century ago by the Thompsons (Lyon descent), and 
since by the Williamsons (mother a Lyon). 

In the days of stage coach travel, one of the chief lines. New 
York to Philadelphia (about 1780) oddly had its headquarters off the 
main road on a Lyon farm (6) then occupied by the proprietor, Ichabod 
Grumman, Jr. There are traditions of the fifty horses kept there, of 
his coaches (springless wagons) named the Swift Sure and the 
Speed Well, and an old stage book is preserved. The starting point 
was at first Elizabeth, reached from New York by ferry to the Point; 
later the route was from Paulus Hook (Jersey City) via Newark. 

The earliest school at Lyons Farms was one taught by Mrs. 
Hannah (Bruen) Grumman on the same old place (6). In 1784 Joseph 
Lyon deeded to trustees the Southeast corner of the Henry Lyon 
plantation (2) for a school. Here was built — from one great boulder, 
tradition has it — the Stone School House; an interesting relic with its 
worn door step, its pine desks rudely carved and stained only by the 
umber of human contact, still standing beside its loftier modern 
successor. 

"Three-story larnin's pop'lar now; I guess 
We thriv ez wal on jes' two stories less." 

The "Old Red Schoolhouse" on another Lyon tract (at P) in a 
niche by the roadside, was more recent, itself displaced in 1873 by 
Hillside Hall on another site. 

In church life the people of Lyons Farms were connected with the 
old church at Elizabeth, at first independent and later Presbyterian; 
and in the graveyard surrounding it, most of the early generations 
rest. Henry Lyon, in a list of 1694, is seen to have made the largest 
single contribution to the minister's support, and his grandson, Joseph, 
was long an honored elder, followed by his son Joseph. 

In 1769 a Baptist Society was formed at the Farms. Among its 
twelve founders the first name is Ezekiel Crane (grandson of Joseph 
Lyon) with his wife Abigail (daughter of Nath'l Baldwin) ; the second 
name Ichabod Grumman, the sole deacon up to 1785, whose deceased 
wife had been Bethia, nee Lyon) ; Joseph Meeker, and Mary Meeker. 
The first building on the present site was begun in 1792. 

The churchyard has not a few graves, dating some of them before 
1800. Rev. Peter Bryant, an Englishman, was one of the notable 
early pastors (1792-1807). His admirably kept church records furnish 
valuable historical material. 



LYONS FARMS 77 

The Presbyterian Church at the Farms was dedicated in 1849. 
The long pastorate of Rev. George C. Pollock, 1864-1882, is remembered 
with special affection. 

Evergreen Cemetery, incorporated in 1853, and since enlarged 
to about 100 acres, occupies largely Lyon lands (Benjamin^ and 
Moses*, Northeast and Southeast) ; a well kept and beautiful city 
of the dead. 

Lyons Farms was made a post oflBce in 1854; Alexander McKirgan 
was the first Postmaster. His wife was Julia Lyon [Zopher^]. 

Lyons Farms has some Revolutionary traditions: of a surprise 
of British oflBcers in the old Meeker house (5) ; of men who saw service, 
and of some — as Tappan° Lyon — who died in the prison ship pest 
hole. Ichabod Grumman, Jr., was an enlisted Express Rider. A clear 
tradition has come down that he brought from Philadelphia North, the 
first news of Cornwallis' surrender, in mad gallop "riding one horse 
all the way." The visit of Lafayette fifty years later (1825) was long 
remembered, his passing down the old highway escorted by the light 
horse, among them several Lyons Farms men. Old Lyons Farms long 
had its Militia and its training days. A number served in the War 
of 1812; among them Moses Thompson and S. R. Winans. Men now 
living can recall how no Fourth of July picnic was complete without 
Col. William Brown on his prancing horse, in full uniform aglitter 
with brass. In the Civil War a dozen men enlisted, among them 
Wm. Lyon and Wm. Winans (whose mother was Mary Lyon, daughter 
of David", Samuel*). 

Lyons Farms, for a small place, has had a creditable number of 
college bred and professional men: beginning with Joseph Lyon, who 
graduated at Princeton in 1763, afterward reading theology; three min- 
isters — one. Rev. Lewis Bond (1795-1885) for thirty years a pastor at 
Plainfield, New Jersey; more recently, four physicians, Dr. Joseph 
Ward, J. E. Winans, J. C. Johnson, Wm. Ward; several college trained 
teachers, as S. R. Winans, Jr., Professor of Greek at Princeton, Wm. E. 
Pollison, H. L. Winans, Masters in important schools. William and 
Joseph Grumman were expert surveyors— the latter an inventor of 
improvements in surveyors' chains, and City Surveyor of Brooklyn 
when he enlisted in the Civil War to fall in battle. Chancellor 0. S. 
Halsted lived his later life in Lyons Farms. The village seems to have 
produced no lawyers. It did have however representatives of the old 
time ideal type of country Justice; who wrote the deeds and wills, 
settled the estates, was referee and arbitrator, served his neighbors

iu countless minor offices, trusted and honored. Such was Squire 
David Lyon (1760-1845); and such his friend and successor, Squire 
Samuel R. Winans, who died in 1887 in his 91st year. He was twice 
in the Legislature, held many offices, and settled some forty estates. 
Governor Franklin C. Murphy's paternal grandmother was a daughter 
of Benjamin^ Lyon, born in Lyons Farms at (6). Rev. James Lyon 
should probably be credited to Lyons Farms: graduated at Princeton 
in 1759; poet, musician and notable preacher; he died in 1794, at 
Machias, Me. 

Lyons Farms has a few interesting relics of the past: old bound- 
aries unshifted since the 17th century surveys, old house sites and 
old wells, like that at (6), deep and cavernous, with a huge native 
stone for a cap, belonging to the earliest period. A Chandler house 
preserved as a relic (7) is over a century old; while the old Meeker 
house (5), still used, is something rare. It shows three parts, one 
having the extended roof slope on the North and low stone wall, 
forming the ancient cool, above-ground, store-room; its original cedar 
shingle siding is weathered thin and feathery; an excellent type, 
among few remaining, of the houses built at the first settlement, 
before 1700. 

Old Lyons Farms is passing. The main line of the Lehigh Rail- 
road bisects the village, and electric tram-cars shuttle through its 
ancient highway. Newark's city limits now come down to the County 
line. When ere long Elizabeth's city bounds are extended North a 
little, the village will be swallowed up, and the historic name, which 
has persisted so long against cheap modern substitutes proposed, will 
be of the past. Here will be an attractive residence quarter for 
those whose business is in the great metropolis. The place has had 
simple annals, a clean record, and has generated worthy sons. It has 
always had mosquitoes, but tolerated no saloons. Newark, in develop- 
ing her magnificent park system has converted the old Cove marsh into 
a lake, and is bringing out the natural beauties of the rugged hills and 
glens at the Cove Eead, once Lyon land. 

Possibly some prospered son of the name may some day here place 
a memorial to Henry Lyon, the pioneer and patriarch of a far-spread 
and not unworthy race. S. R. WINANS. 



AN ANCIENT LYON SEAL. 

There is reproduced below the signature of the will of Samuel 
Winans, Borough of Elizabeth, Essex Co., New Jersey, dated June 13, 
1744, interesting to readers of the Lyon Memorial because of the 
accompanying seal. The impression is in red wax, beautifully sharp, 
enlarged somewhat in the reproduction. Without question it is an 
ancient Lyon seal. Samuel Winans was a brother-in-law of Ebenezer* 
Lyon of Lyons Farms. Benjamin Bounel, who seems to have perma- 
nently borrowed this seal, was one of the witnesses of Samuel Winan's 
will. He wrote wills and used the Lyon crest several times. The 
early scrivener stuck on his own seal, or any other, till after the second 
generation, when paper seals came in. This lion rampant may well 
have been taken from the earliest recorded Lyon arms, those which 
Baron John exhibited at the tournament at Duncastle 1314. "Monsr. 
John de Lyonnes arms d'argent un lyon rampant de goules."

ately after the regicide, they fled to America. Henry Lyon went to 
Milford, Conn., where he is first on record, Feb. 24, 1649, when he was 
admitted to Milford Church. He married in 1652, Elizabeth, daughter 
of William Bateman, of Fairfield, Conn., and was granted a home lot 
there. May 28, 1654, he was dismissed from Fairfield to Milford 
Church. In 1666 he came to Newarli, N. J., as one of its founders,

8. II. 1. BENJAMIN2 LYON, Esq. [Henryi] was born about 
1668 in Elizabeth township, New Jersey, after his parents had be- 
come prominently identified with this place. His name is given in a 
list, 1694, of subscribers to the support of the Rev. John Harriman of 
the First Presbyterian Church of Elizabeth. In the re-survey and 
allotment of the township, which from the first was the leading one in 
New Jersey, Benjamin Lyon was chosen assistant "to lay out, divide 
and equally assize all the lands and meadows within the whole bound 
and purchase of Elizabethtown, to every one interested therein, by 
right of purchase under the Hon. Richard Nicolls, their several re- 
spective parts, and of the whole."t 

"They entered upon their work December 26, 1699, and com- 
pleted it March 5, 1700. The ground surveyed comprised 17,000 
acres. Benjamin Lyon was chosen 1708-9 by the Borough of Elizabeth 
as a member of the Assembly, was appointed 1711-12 a Justice of the 
Peace§; served 1717 on County Committee of Highways. "These ap- 
pointments, embracing a period of about ten years, serve to show who 
were of the second generation chosen to office, and were looked upon 
as men of activity and influence by their townsmen. In almost every 
instance they were the sons or grandsons of the old planters whose 
names were still represented in the town."t 

Benjamin Lyon married Bethia Condit, sister of John Condit, 
whose will, dated March 15, 1709-10, names "brothers Benjamin Lyon 
and Matthew Williams" as overseers. The following is the text of 
the will of Benjamin Lyon: — 

In the Name of God Amen: The Eighteenth Day of ffebuary 
Anno, one thousand Seven Hundred and Nineteen I Benjamin Lyon of 
Newark in the County of Essex & Eastern Devision of New Jersey 

tElizabethtown Book. 

5 In New Jersey the appointment of Justice of the Peace was equivalent dur- 
ing the Colonial period to that of Judge of the Supreme Court. See Eligibility

uel and his brother Tappan were soldiers in the American Revolution, 
They were captured by the British and died in the horrible Sugar 
House prison in New York. The following letter written by this Sam- 
uel who was a witness of the public demonstration in New York City 
at the time of the declaration of American Independence is of historic 
interest. The beginning of the letter is torn off: 

" immediately in that I wrote for some things to be left at 

Daniel Sayres' for John Stewart to fetch over on Friday, but I do not 
know whether he will come before Saturday. The things I wrote for 
was a thick jaccoot, woosted stocking and woolen ones, a knife, fork 
and spoon, and the reasons for my wanting them are in some measure 
removed, yet I want them still and if we shall go any where to en- 
camp (as I expect we shall) I should want them as much as ever. If 
you receive this or the other letter in time, I should be glad if you 
would send the things to Sayre's as it is uncertain wether I shall have 
another opportunity to get them. Our sick are all removed except 
two, who, I believe, will be sent home. You desired I should write 
how I get washing done. My washing is done very well at the follow- 
ing prices, vist.; for a shirt 6d., jaccoot or breeches 6d., stocking 2d. 
per pair; sock Id., handkerchief Id. It costs me for washing 1/9 per 
week, and board, if I get it at the tavern as some do, is 20 s. p'r week 
and however I have not learned to be so extravigant, & God grant I 
never may. 

Soon after our arrival today. Independence was proclaimed in this 
City by the Inhabitants at the City Hall, when the King's coat of arms 
engraved in a stone about five feet square was tumbled from the top 
of the hall and broken to pieces on the pavement, upon which a large 
crowd of people gave three cheers. Then they gathered the pieces 
and placed them on a fire prepared for the purpose & gave three cheers 
more and after which they soon dispersed. They likewise resolved 
that all the pictures of the King's coat of arms in all the Churches 
should be taken out and burned. 

Friday morning, 6 o'clock. Jonathan Pierson this morning 
obtained liberty of the General to go home so that if you send the 
things to his house he can fetch them over, and if you will send me a 
small cheese it will not be amiss, as there is neither butter nor cheese 
to be got here unless for very extravigant prices. I have been to 
Holt's and the year is up for news and they want the money. If you

"November, 1818. 
"Mr. Jos. Congar — 
Respected Sir: 

I have called agreeably to your wishes on my arrival in New York, 
this afternoon on Mr. Andrew Morris, and the lowest price he will sell 
15 boxes of dipt candles was 17 s., and soap 11 s. for a considerable 
quantity. He would sell at a discount of l-i/^ per cent. Mr. Robert 
Steel offered me the same price, 17 s. and 11 s. and no less. William 
Colegate asked me 17 s. for one box or 20, and for soap, 10 s. They 
all asked one price for candles. On my remarking to them they had 
advanced in their price, they simply observed that they were made of 
the best of American tallow and could not be offered for less. I think 
you may venture to ask the same advance in price as they have. 

Compliments to the family.

Benjamins, Benjamin Esq.2, Henryi) was born in New York City 
March 17, 1784, and died at his home on Plum St., Cincinnati, O., 
Dec. 23, 1871. His last recollection of the city of his nativity was see- 
ing General George Washington disembark from an eight-oared barge 
at Water Street when he came to be inaugurated first President of 
the United States. Then came the long journey across the mountains, 
then down the Ohio River from Pittsburg to Fort Washington to the 
strenuous life of the great Northwest. Indians with hostile intent 
were just beyond the settlement and an armed guard, man or woman, 
stood in the corners of the worm-fences while the fields were tilled. 
The little stream in Glen Lyon on the Jonathan Lyon estate, Cincinnati, 
got the sanguinary title of "Bloody Run" from a fight between set- 
tlers and the Indians that happened there. Among other reminiscences 
that he liked to dwell upon, was his first visit to Jeffersonville, Indiana, 
when he floated down the river on a keel boat to be the guest of hia 
kinsman, Major Hunter, who was in command of Old Fort Finney.

and Vine Streets; Pike's Opera House afterward occupied the site.

mains were taken to San Jose, Calif., to be interred by the grave of

1056. VII. 626. SIDNEY SMITH? LYON [Jonathan W.6, JamesS, 
Moses*, Benjamin^, Benjamin Esq.2, Henryi] was born in Cincinnati, 
Ohio, Aug, 4, 1808. On St. John's Day the Associated Press made the 
following announcement: "Louisville, June 24, 1872; Major Sidney S, 
Lyon, formerly State Geologist of Kentucky, one of the most eminent 
of his profession, died of paralysis at his residence in Jeffersonville, 
Ind,, at 2:30 p. m." 

A short sketch of his life will be edited in part from what the 
Press had to say of him. "The home of Major Lyon, on the Falls of the 
Ohio, afforded him peculiar advantages for the prosecution of his fav- 
orite study. He devoted much time to the examination of Cninoidea, a 
branch of Paleontology that he made a speciality, and his collection 
of crinoids is considered equal to any in the world, with the exception 
perhaps of that of Prof. Wyville Tompson, of Belfast, Ireland, many of 
whose specimens are duplicates of those in the Lyon cabinet. Major 
Lyon contributed many articles and drawings of the new genera and 
specimens of crinoids found on the Falls here, to the Philadelphia 
Academy of Science, The larger portion of the Kentucky Geological 



186 HENRY LYON OF NEWARK 

Survey was also from his pen. The report of the Smithsonian In- 
stitute for 1870, contains a contribution from Major Lyon upon the 
ancient Mounds in Lyon County of this state (Kentucky). 

When the hostilities commenced between the North and the 
South, the United States Government secured the services of Major 
Lyon, and he was attached to the command of Gen. George W. Mor- 
gan, 9th Division of the Army of Ohio, as Chief of the Engineering 
Corps, and by his skill and his knowledge of the topography of Ken- 
tucky he rendered most efficient service in the first campaign of the 
war. On April 1st, 1862, he was commissioned Captain in the 4th Ken- 
tucky Cavalry, and in August 1863, was promoted to the rank of 
Major. However, he never saw his Regiment, being on detached duty, 
first with Brig. Gen. George W. Morgan; afterward with Major Gen. 
George L. Hartstuff ; Major Gen. A. E. Burnside; Gen. Manson and Gen. 
Foster, as acting Topographical Engineer, through Kentucky, at Cum- 
berland Gap, through Tennessee, at the Siege of Vicksburg, at Port 
Arkansas, etc., etc., building fortifications, and constructing military 
roads. 

At Cumberland Gap he received injuries from which he never 
recovered and which eventually caused his death. It was the night of 
July 21, 1862, during an attack made by the Union forces under the 
command of Col. Carter upon a Flag of Truce in passing from Cumber- 
land Gap to Tezwell, Tenn. By this fatal blunder many of the prison- 
ers to be exchanged were killed, and several of the escort were 
wounded, among them Sidney S. Lyon. After some days of suffering 
he returned to duty and continued building the fortifications that he 
destroyed on the night of September 17, 1862. 

When Gen. Morgan's forces were surrounded, the enemy having 
cut off all communications with the rear preventing reinforcements 
and supplies from reaching his garrison, at a Council of War, Capt. 
Sidney S. Lyon of Gen. Morgan's staff, was consulted as to the pos- 
sibility of making a retreat toward Lexington if the Gap was vacated. 
He rejected this plan, which meant annihilation, but had another to 
suggest, and promised to save the army depending on his knowledge 
of the topography of Kentucky to achieve an almost Impossible feat. 
It was difficult to conduct a great body of men through a rough, wild 
country, where roads would have to be cut through impenetrable un- 
dergrowth; and there would be no victualling by the way. He further 
stated that they would have to cross "Big Devil River" and "Little 
Devil River" and "Hell for Sartaln Creek", small, turbulent streams

that a sudden freshet turned into dangerous unfordable waters. 

But this Chapter of American History is best told through the 
personal recollections of Col. James KeigwinJ in 

The Escape of Morgan's Army. 
"Shut up like rats in a trap for thirty days until rations grew 
short, and hope of escape became less and less; shut up by Kirby, 
Smith and John Morgan in Cumberland Gap while Buell and Bragg 
were racing toward Louisville; that was the condition of Gen. George 
W. Morgan and the 12,000 officers and men under him in September 
1862. They could not fight their way out for the Confederates had 
treble the men on either side the mountain, ready to pounce upon the 
devoted little Union Army if it ventured out of the fastnesses of the 
Gap. Yet, come forth it must, sooner or later, for food was becoming 
scarcer and scarcer, and it was simply a question of starvation, sur- 
render, or fight to the death. Gen. Morgan and the Generals with him, 
Carter, Baird and Speers, looked at their position from all sides. To 
get out of the trap and get away, the army would have to come out 
by the way of Barboursville and Lexington, or to sneak over almost 
impassible paths through the mountains, and emerge upon the Ohio 
in Eastern Kentucky. By the first plan capture was certain; by the 
second, capture or starvation was possible, but the army might be 
saved. To remain in the Gap was to be caught without a stroke for 
liberty. Finally it was decided to march, or rather scramble, through 
the mountains. Then followed one of the most marvelous races to 
save an army which has ever been recorded in history. As soon as 
Morgan reached the decision of flight, the trunnions were cut from the 
seige guns, and the guns toppled over a precipice; the tents were cut 
to pieces, and the extra ammunition was thrown down an enormous 
well which provided the army with Water. In fact, what the men 
could not carry, and did not absolutely need, was destroyed. The two 
Hoosier regiments, the Forty-ninth under Col. James Keigwin, and 
the Thirty-third under Col. Coburn, were ordered to push ahead to 
Cumberland Ford, taking the cannon with them, "And for God's 
sake, Colonels, get to the Ford before morning" was the instruction 
from the General. They made the distance, but the men almost dupli- 
cated Napoleon's feat of crossing the Alps. Horses were useless, 
and the entire force had to tug at the ropes and get under the wheels 
to pull or lift the ordance over the path.

188 HENRY LYON OF NEWARK 

Meanwhile Morgan wanted to hear from his cavalry, which re- 
connoitered Stevenson's Division of the Confederates on the Tennessee 
side. And when they came in they brought the news that Stevenson 
had evidently discovered their intention and was moving. Then 
Morgan started. One man only remained behind. It was Captain 
Sidney S. Lyon, of Jeffersonville, one of Indiana's most gifted engin- 
eers. As the Federal army moved away, he sat down upon a rock 
and waited. Beside him lay a black, snake-like rope, the end running 
into the steep side of the mountain. It was a fuse. He had mined 
the mountain and lilled the hollow with all the powder the fleeing 
army could spare, and presently, when it was safe out of danger, he 
would light the fuse and then 

The Explosion of the Mine. 

The tramp of the marching died away; the commissary stores 
were burning and still he sat, as the night fell over the heights and the 
darkness filled the ravines. The solitary watcher in the deserted camp 
listened intently. Were the Confederates coming? He heard the faint 
hoof-beats, the rumble of a great force of men coming from the 
Tennessee side. It was time to fire the fuse. There was the sparkle 
of a match, the splutter of powder, and a man fleeing down the moun- 
tain toward Kentucky for his life then a death-like silence in 

the rocky wilderness Far away toward the Ford the Fed- 
erals were seeking escape, and every now and then looking back to- 
ward the mountain height from which they had descended. On the 
other side, with clink of spurs and sabre, the Confederates wer^ 

pressing forward, if possible to intercept the hurrying column 

Then there was a last splutter of the snake-like rope. It had crept 
into the mountain side like a serpent with a fiery head. A moment's 
silence. The man fleeing for his life looked back. The mountain open- 
ed. Flames shot up into the star-lit darkness; for miles and miles they 
lighted up the night; for miles and miles rumbled and crashed and 
thundered the voice of an awful explosion, shaking and rocking the 
solid earth. Then silence again, deep and dark. The Gap was block- 
aded by the opening of the mine, and the Federals gained a respite 
until the Confederates could find some means of getting guns and 
cavalry over the ruins. "Six miles away", said Col. Keigwin, "the 
earth trembled with the shock of the explosion." 

"The retreat through the mountains of Eastern Kentucky was a 
long and arduous one, the troops subsisting mostly on green corn 



SEVENTH GENERATION 189 

during the entire march of two hundred and fifty miles, occupying 
seventeen days and nights of almost constant marching and fighting."t 

"The people from the Union hearing nothing from the apparently 
doomed army, gave it up for lost. But it toiled away toward the 
North, the men dragging the cannons and wagons, and bearing the 
siclf and wounded, and during brief rests, grating half ripe corn to 
make bread to be hastily and greedily swallowed. When the column 
emerged from the roughest part of the mountains, it found itself 
harassed in front, rear and on the flanks by John Morgan's cavalry, 
which tried to retard it until Kirby Smith and Humphrey Marshall 
could arrive and crush it." 

General Morgan's orders to Topographical Engineer Lyon were 
"to totally obliterate and blockade the roads." "To you," he said, 
"I entrust this important duty". Munday's Cavalry and the Third 
Kentucky Infantry constituted the advance guard. Heavy fatigue 
parties were constantly employed in front, making and repairing roads 
which were again blockaded by Capt. Lyon when the rear guard passed 
over. Trees were felled to close all avenues of approach, and bridges 
were destroyed. The country was cleared of what little provender 
there had been by the famished soldiers. By day and by night the 
march went on till Oct. 4, 1862, when at last the exhausted army 
reached Greenup in the extreme east of Kentucky, and below them 
flowed the waters of the Ohio. The men shouted for joy, for there 
was the Ford, and beyond the free North. The army was savedj. 

"The American nation owes him (Major Sidney S. Lyon) a debt 
which it has never fully paid, for it was his ingenuity, originality and 
daring which saved a Union Army from either destruction or capture, 
and possibly prevented the capture of Louisville by Bragg, by com- 
pelling the Confederate Armies to watch Cumberland Gap, and then to 
pursue the escaping Union Army of Gen. George W. Morgan." 

The man who planned and executed the retreat of the Twelve 
Thousand (called generally "the Retreat of the Ten Thousand") three 
months previous to the evacuation of Cumberland Gap and the retreat 
to the Ohio River, had suffered the injuries of a broken arm, a con- 
tused leg, and hurts about the breast and head. The Geological Survey 
of Kentucky had made him familiar with the country to be traversed. 
He alone could have brought the 7th Army Corps from the mortal 
peril into safety. 



tCol. James Kelgwln's Memoirs. 



190 HENRY LYON OF NEWARK 

In the seige of Vicksburg, the expedition against Arkansas Post, 
in Burnside's Expedition to Cumberland Gap, etc., etc., etc., Major 
Lyon served his country with splendid heroism and a remarkable skill 
in military affairs. But his laborious occupation, much exposure, and 
the effects of his injuries, had broken his health. 

It will be found in "War of the Rebellion — Official Records" that 
"it is a matter of regret that the age and failing health of this officer 
Impair to a certain extent his usefulness as a topographer, for which 
he has a wonderful talent." On Oct. 21, 1864, it became necessary 
on account of physical disability, for Major Sidney S. Lyon, Asst. 
Engineer, 23rd Army Corps, to tender his resignation and return 
to civil life. At the close of the war, in hope of healing a shattered 
constitution, he accepted an offer to go to Nevada to locate mines. 
When this fact became public, the Government at Washington sent 
him a quantity of books and maps, requesting as a favor, that his 
proposed work might be put on the records of the United States 
Survey. Atlas sheet S — 8 of the Geographical Survey, west of the 
100th meridian, shows that part of the continent, then virtually un- 
known, that was brought into knowledge by this expert topographer 
and geologist, who was a member of nearly all of the Scientific 
Societies of America. 

This resume has left unnoticed the early years of Sidney Smith 
Lyon. As a child he had shown an extraordinary aptitude for drawing. 
In 1836 the spirit of art, long dormant, was wakened to full activity 
by the companionship of Morgan, Beard, Crouch and the Frankenstines. 
The most distinguished men of Kentucky were subjects for his pencil, 
and such pictures as the "Entombment" and. the "Paralytic" exhibit 
his genius. Who taught the unschooled coterie of early Western 
artists drawing, color and technique? Experiment, mutual sug- 
gestion, and the progress of sustained endeavor was their Munich and 
their Paris. But unless ancestral transmission directs the trend of 
future men, a special Providence is the destiny of special lives. 

In 1829 Sidney S. Lyon became a citizen of Louisville, Ky., and 
married there, Nov. 8, 1831, Honora Vincent Lyons, who was born In 
the City of Cork Jan. 6, 1816, a daughter of John Lyons, Esq., and 
Mary Jackson, his wife, a young girl of rare beauty and culture, and a 
kinswoman of that giant of the English Parliament, O'Connell, the 
great Irish agitator. Her father came to Louisville after the "Declara- 
tion of Peace" to engage in business — something that his Old World 
position would not permit at home. After the arrival of his family 



SEVENTH GENERATION 191 

in 1826, his house at the corner of Third and Market Streets be- 
came noted for its hospitality, and for the grace and intellectuality 
of its mistress. When she reached womanhood, Honora Lyons was a 
reigning belle. Charm was one of her gifts and attracted all who came 
near her — a gift that she retained all her long life through, just 
as she retained her beauty, which had only become the beauty of age, 
and her social qualities. As a wife, as a mother, as a friend, there 
was none like her, and she pleased her Master, for she loved her 
neighbor as herself. In 1847 she came to Jeffersonville, Ind., and she 
had lived for fifty years at her home "The Octagon", when, on Feb. 
22, 1900, she ceased to make happiness for others. Then it was said 
of her, "She was one of the most cultured and lovable women in the 
three Falls Cities, and to her last days took a lively interest in the 
affairs of the world, well abreast of its literary and political move- 
ments, a noble christian woman, whose life was full of the fragrance 
of good deeds. Death came to her, not as the King of Dread, but as a 
great white-winged Angel from the presence of God who bears the 
Palm of Peace."

REVEREND JAMES LYON. 

OF MACHIAS, MAINE. 

2172. (187a). V. 66. REV. JAMES' LYON [Zopher*. Capt. Henry*, 
SamueP, Henry'] was born in Newark, N. J., July 1, 1735. He waa a 
graduate of Princeton College, B. A. 1759; A. M. 1762. On the oc- 
casion of taking his Master's degree he made an address which was 
commented on very favorably in the public press. He was licensed 
to preach in 1762 by the Presbytery of New Brunswick and ordained 
by the same body in 1764. He preached several years in Nova Scotia, 
in Onslow (1764) and other places, but he became discouraged and 
determined to return to New Jersey. Just at this time, in 1771, the 
people in the new settlement at Machias, Me., were in search of a 
minister. They engaged James Lyon at a salary of eighty pounds 
a year, to take charge of the new parish, preaching on alternate 
Sabbaths at the West Falls and the East Falls settlements. Thus be- 
gan the relationship maintained with mutual profit and satisfaction 
until terminated by his death June 12, 1794. 

During the Revolutionary war he was a leader in the movement 
to achieve independence. In 1775 he submitted to General Washing- 
ton for the patriots of Maine, plans for the conquest of Nova Scotia. 
His name appears on the roster of a detachment raised in December 
1776 to operate against the British at Cumberland, service 25 days. 
Again in 1777 he has a record of service of three months at Machias, 
for defense. During these trying years he did not receive one dollar 
on account of salary, although eventually the whole amount due him 
as "back pay" v/as made up. 

When the supply of salt was cut off by the interruption of com- 
merce during the war, he established a plant for extracting salt from 
the sea water, the little island on which it was located retaining to 
this day the name "Salt Island." He was a man of forceful personal- 
ity, energetic in secular as well as in religious affairs. He was 
color blind and once purchased a piece of scarlet cloth for a coat, 
supposing that it was black. 

The church over which he presided was organized September 12, 
1782. Meetings had been held at first in Stephen Jones' barn. In 
1774 the first meeting house had been built, by private subscriptions, 
at a cost of $220. The Machias town records contain a number of 
items like the following: "Aug. 10, 1784, a town meeting was held, 

(15) 



242 HENRY LYON OF NEWARK 

at which it was voted that eighty-six pound's be assessed and raised 
for one year's salary of the Rev. James Lyon. Also it was voted 
that the Rev. James Lyon have the use of the public marsh lots three 
ensuing years."§ 

Rev. James Lyon as a young man showed some talent as a facile 
writer of verse. In the New American Magazine, published at Wood- 
bridge, N. J., there appeared in September 1759, an original ode, 
"Louisburg Taken," signed Nassovian, written by him while yet in 
college. At the Commencement when he was graduated, Sept. 26, 
1759, the concluding number on the program was an "Ode" of his 
composition, set to original music — either his own, or that of his 
friend Francis Hopkinson. In the light of subsequent history, the 
refrain of this composition is interesting: 

"We sing great George upon the Throne, 
And Amherst brave in arms, 
Amherst brave in arnas." 

and again, 

"Happy, happy, happy still. 

Safe from all the alarms of ill 

W^hile George, the friend of man, adorns the throne 

And Amherst shines in arms." 

At the Commencement in May 1761, it is recorded that "there 
was performed an elegant Anthem, composed by James Lyon of New 
Jersey College." There was also given on that occasion "an Ode, 
sacred to the memory of our late gracious Sovereign, George II, 
written and set to music in a very grand and masterly taste by Francis 
Hopkinson, Esq., A. M." There has been recently published an "appre- 
ciation" of these two early cultivators of the art of musical expres- 
sion, by O. G. Sonneck of Washington, D. C. James Lyon published 
several collections of sacred music, notably one first issued in 1762, 
entitled Urania. A new edition of this was advertised in the Penn- 
sylvania Journal in November 1767, as "a choice collection of psalm 
tunes, anthems and hymns, some of them entirely new." Price, ten 
shillings. 

James Lyon married first, Feb. 18, 1768, Martha Holden, of Cape 
May, W. N. J. (born Dec. 24, 1749), who was the mother of his children. 
He married second, Nov. 24, 1793, only a few months before his 
death, Sarah Skillen (Boston Record). She was born 1744 and died 
Oct. 18, 1827 (G. R. Middleboro cemetery, Acushnet). 



§It is stated that at one time he supplied the pulpit of Newtown, L. I., 
1782-1785, but this does not seem probable. Another statement found in the 
New Jersey Archives (XX. p. 383) is that "he is said to have been of Irish 
birth." Both statements no doubt arose from confounding Rev. James Lyon 
of Machias with a Rev. James Lyon of about the same age who came from 
Ireland about 1747 and preached at Brookhaven, L. I. (d. 1786).

2173. V(?). . CAPTAIN DAVID LYON of "North End" 

Elizabethtown, 1745-1802, was no doubt a descendant of Henry Lyon, 
probably in the fifth generation. His parentage has not been ascer- 
tained, but he may be identified without question as the David Lyon 
who was Captain in Continental Army in the Revolutionary War.t 
He was buried in the Elizabethtown Presbyterian Churchyard, his 
tombstone bearing the inscription, "Capt. David Lyon, d. 1802, March 
30, aged 57 years." In 1787 he gave to the village school of his 
neighborhood "a good size bell, which rang many generations to work 
in the long pine forms of the North End school." The old school 
house was destroyed by fire about 1864. The bell was removed to 
Dr. David Pierson's Academy across the road from David Lyon's 
residence, where it remained until this too was burned down, in 
1878. It is now in the museum of the State House in Trenton. Around 
the bell is the inscription: 

"A gift from Capn. David Lyon, 1789," and below this Is cast: 
"Made by David Ross at Eliz. town." Captain David Lyon and 
his wife Rhoda were members of the old Presbyterian Church at Eliz- 



248 HENRY LYON OF NEWARK 

abethtown. They were perhaps parents of David [the tombstone, 
broken off, says, "Brother David, aged 45"] of Aaron, born 1769, 
died Sept. 5, 1854 [he lived on tract X, about at T O on Map of Lyons 
Farms], and of a nameless child who died June 17, 1788, all buried 
in the same churchyard. 



tOfflcial record from the office of the Adjutant General, State of New Jersey: 
It is certified that the records of this office show that David iyon was com- 
missioned Captain, First New York Regiment, New York Continental Line, 
June 28, 1775; commissioned Captain, Colonel Oliver Spencer's Regiment, Con- 
tinental Arm.y, January 1, 1777; joined regiment June 1, 1777; resigned April 
10, 1778. Dated: Trenton, Nov. 9, 1906. 



RHODE ISLAND LYONS. 

PROBABLY OF THE FAMILY OF HENRY. 

In the "Lyon Memorial, Massachusetts Families" there is given 
a record of the descendants of a certain John Lyon of Scituate, R. L, 
born probably about 1740, whose parentage had not been ascertained, 
but who was referred doubtfully to the family of William^ Lyon of 
Roxbury. It was stated, however, that he might have been a des- 
cendant of Henry^ Lyon. No new light has been shed upon the 
question of his ancestry, but additional facts have been ascertained 
about other Rhode Island Lyons who seem to have been of the same 
family, and these may be given place here as being perhaps not out 
of their natural connection. We have seen that one branch of the 
family of Henry established itself in Rhode Island, descendants of 
Lieutenant James Lyon (No. 26). James had a brother John who 
married but whose descendants have not been traced. It is quite pos- 
sible that he also settled in Rhode Island, and it would have been 
very natural for him to name one of his sons John. Another son he 
might naturally have named for his uncle Thomas. 

John Lyon of Scituate married, Oct. 27, 1763, in Cranston, R. I., 
Martha Burlingame, daughter of Daniel and Rose (Briggs) Burlingame. 
Three years before, Thomas Lyon had married Huldah, a sister of 
Martha Burlingame. No records have been found as yet in Rhode 
Island of the descendants of this Thomas, whom we may assume to 
hare been a brother of John, although such records no doubt exist. 
It is, however, almost certain that the sons of Thomas removed from 
Rhode Island to Chenango Co., N. Y., as did 'some of the sons of John. 
At all events, three brothers, Samuel, Alexander and "Major" Lyon, 
in 1791, settled at Lyon Brook, Chenango Co., and their descendants 
state that they came either from Connecticut or Rhode Island. The 
circumstance that one of them bore the unusual name Alexander 
is of significance, since Cyrus Lyon, a 'son of John named his oldest 
son Alexander in 1797. That Cyrus and Alexander were cousins there- 
fore, there can hardly be a doubt. Again the circumstance that a 
daughter of Samuel Lyon married a Burlingame — whether in Rhode 
Island or in New York State does not signify — points unmistakably 
to Rhode Island as the home of the emigrants. 

Of the three brothers who came to Chenango Co. in 1791, two, 
Samuel and Alexander, are said to have been previously soldiers In 



250 RHODE ISLAND LYONS 

the Revolutionary war, having served in a Connecticut regiment. 
Alexander was never married. The third brother "Major" Lyon is 
said to have been killed at Little York "in a fight with the British 
in 1812." The Lyon brothers bought land of Benjamin Hovey, Gov. 
Clinton's land agent, for one shilling an acre. They built a grist 
mill; also, it is said, "a lumber mill and a woolen mill." Samuel 
was the only one of them who raised a family. His wife's name has 
not been ascertained.

RICHARD LYON 

OF FAIRFIELD, 

[The family history compiled by Mrs. Louise Lyon Johnson, of Minneapolis, Minn. 

A. B. Lyons, M. D., of Detroit, Mich., and Dr. G. W. A. 

Lyon, of Philadelphia, Pa.] 

Richard Lyon settled in Fairfield, Conn., as early as May, 1649, 
the exact date of his arrival there not being now known. According 
to family tradition he was the youngest of three brothers, who came 
to New England probably about 1648 and located first in Fairfield 
County, Connecticut. § The earliest item relating to him is found in 
the Colonial Records of Connecticut (I. 183) where we read in the 
proceedings of a "perticular Courte" in Hartford, May 16, 1649 "Ne- 
hemiah Olmstead Pit contra Richard Lyon defendt in an action of the 
case, to the damage of £12." The report is certainly tantalizingly 
brief, and leaves us quite in the dark as to the merits or the out- 
come of the controversy. 

Richard Lyon had a house and lot recorded in the Land Records 
of Fairfield ("Fayrefeild") in January, 1653, and was made a freeman 
there in 1664 (Conn. Colonial Records I. 432) f. In 1673 he had re- 
corded five acres of land at Barlow's Plains, and 18% acres "on the 
Rocks." He was chosen Commissioner for Fairfield, May 1669 (Conn. 
Col. Rec. n. 106). It is related that on the occasion of a witchcraft 
trial "the prisoner was sharply rebuked by Richard Lyon, one of the 
keepers, for bold language." From the abusive reply which is re- 
corded one may gather that the rebuke was well deserved. 

The will of Richard Lyon, dated April 12th, 1678, probated Oct. 17, 
1678, is almost the only source of information about his family. It 
reads: — 

"The Last Will and Testament of Richard Lyon of Fairfield weak 
In body, but perfect in mind and memory doe make this my last will 

tThe names of settlers in "Fayrefeild" accepted to be made free Oct. 13, 
1664 were "John Bur, Rob. Turny, Joseph Lockwood, Simon Crowch, John 
Knowles, Rob. Beecham, John Barlow Sr., John Barlow Junr, James Euarts, 
Peter Cooly, Thomas Sherwood, Wm. Heyden, John Growman, Francis Bradley, 
John Holte, Steven Sherwood, Nath: Burr, Rich: Lyon, Mr. Wakeman, Thomas 
Bennit, Thomas Wilson. James Bean, John Odill, Samll Morehouse, Thomas 
Morehouse, Mathew Sherwood, Richard Hubbell." (Col. Rec. Conn. I. 433). 

§The compilers of this family history regard It as very highly probable 
that Henry, Thomas and Richard Lyon were brothers. They do not accept as 
of historic value the tradition that these brothers came direct from Scotland, 
although they have no doubt that they were of the same Lyon family of which 
the Earls of Strathmore are a branch. The question is one of fact, to be set- 
tled only by research. 



RICHARD LYON OF FAIRFIELD 253 

and testament. Imprimis: I give my body to a comely buryall and 
my soul unto the hands of God from whom I received it and my 
temporal estate that God hath given me I dispose of as followeth. 
My will is that first after my decease my funeral charges and just 
debts shall be payd. I give and bequeath to my sonn Moses Lyon

give him the fifth part of my long lot to run the whole length to bound 
it the Southwest side. Alsoe I give him two acres of meadow be- 
low the new bridge as the way goeth into Sascoeneck. Also my 
two acres of land in the old field I doe give him, also a gun and a

acres of the long lot is already given by deed of gift to him which is

field land when I doe decease it is to be as my estate but otherwise 
he is to possess it at my decease and the remayning part of the long 
lot that Moses is to have beside the hundred acres Moses is to possess 
at my decease. It is my will that Moses shall pay to my cosen 
Mary Fitch seven pounds within two years after my decease. I

Ijing on the farther side next Benjamin Turney and to run the whole 
length. Alsoe I give him one hundred and fifty acres of my long 
lot next Moses' part running through the whole length, and fifty acres 
of it he is to possess at my decease. I give him two acres of meadow 
in Sascoeneck running the whole length of it lying on the side by 
that which was Mihil [Michael] Fryes'. I give unto my sonne 
William Lyon a third part of my land in Pequaneck alsoe I give him 
one-fifth part of my long lot to run the whole length, and to lye next 
Richard's land, and also I give him two acres of meadow in Sascoeneck 
lying next the beach, and what is left above these Two acres and six 
more of that piece of meadow yf any: William shall have it by his 
two acres. Alsoe I give him my long gunn and my back sword and 
my belt I give him; he to have his portion at nineteen years of age. 
I give unto my sons Samuel and Joseph Lyon my lot and house and 
barn I live on. Alsoe I give them that lot I had of Thomas Morhouse 
called his home lot the whole lot to lye on the northwest side; Joseph 
to have the Northwest. Alsoe I give them four acres of meadow in 
Sascoeneck beside Richard's and William's above said. Yf it fall 
short of four acres then they must take up with what is: all these 
several parcils with house and barn is equally to be divided between 



264 RICHARD LYON OF FAIRFIELD 

Samuel and Joseph. I give unto my daughter Hester Perry four 
pounds fully to her dispose and I give unto my son-in-law Nathaniel 
Perry his son Joseph Perry my grand-child three pounds, and unto my 
son-in-law Nathaniel Perry I give three pounds in carting and plowing 
as he have ocation. I give unto my wife Margaret Lyon whom I 
doe hereby make my Executrix of this my last will, I say I give her 
three score pounds out of my estate and the use of the house I now 
live in and the barn and the home lot and the rest of Samuel and 
Joseph's portion above mentioned to use and improve while she re- 
mayns a widow, or until the said Samuell and Joseph have attayned 
the age of twenty-one years when they are to have their portions. 
I give unto my daughters Betty Hanna and Abigail, when my wife 
hath payed her two score pound out of the moveables, the rest of 
the moveable estate I give them equally to be divided provided it 
exceeds not forty pounds which yf it doe the overplus is to be divided 
between my three youngest sons and my three youngest daughters 
equally. I will my three youngest daughters Betty, Hanna and 
A"bigail shall have their portions payd them at nineteen years of age 
unless they marry before that age yf they doe then to receive their 
portions. And yf either Samuel or Joseph dye before they come to 
age to receive their portions the other sonne to have the whole, he 
paying a third part of the value of the said portion equally unto 
William and the three youngest daughters, and yf any of my three 
youngest daughters dye before they come of age to receive their 
portions then the portion shall be divided equally unto the survivors 
of the three youngest sons. And yf William dye before he come of 
age to receive his portion then Samuell and Joseph shall have his land, 
and they shall pay to my three youngest daughters a third part of the 
value of his land equally to be divided among them. And it is my 
will that yf the moveables fall short of my wife's three score pound 
and my daughters' forty pound a piece as above then my land In 
Sascoeneck lying between Goodman Cobbes and Thomas Shornington 
shall goe in to make it up to that. This is my last will I have here- 
unto set to my hand this 12 April, 1678.

John Grumman, but this may mean simply that John Grumman was 
husband of his sister Esther (see below). 

He died early in 1698, inventory of his estate being returned March

§There lived in Norwalk in the last decade of the Seventeenth Century an 
Andrew Lyon whose antecedents have not been ascertained. No such name 
occurs among the children of either of the three "brothers," Richard, Thomas 
and Henry. One may conjecture that he was related to the other Fairfield 
County families, but it is mere conjecture. He was grantee in a deed of land 
on Mill Brook, grantor, Samuel Benedict, of Danbury, deed dated Feb. 13, 1693. 
He had daughters: 1, Mary; b. July 1, 1691, and 2, Jane; b. Oct. 11, 1707. 
Inventory of his estate dated May 20, 1712; estate administered Oct. 6, 1714. 
His widow Mary married (second wife) Aug. 17, 1712, Joseph Kellogg. They 
had two sons, David; b. Sept. 28, 1715, and Benjamin, born Sept. 26, 1716. 
[Joseph Kellogg's first wife was Sarah Plum, daughter of John Plum, of Mil- 
ford. They were married Nov. 25, 1702 and had five children: 1. Elizabeth, b. 
Oct. 5, 1703; 2. Sarah, b. April 5, 1706; 3. Joseph, b. Sept. 26, 1707; 4. Rachel, 
b. July 15, 1710; 5, Hanna, b. Aug. 1, 1712. Sarah (Plum) Kellog died Aug. 
17, 1712.] Mary Kellogg was appointed administratrix of the estate of Andrew 
Lyon deceased, in Oct. 1714 (Col. Rec. Conn. V. 16). It is reasonable to suppose 
that Andrew Lyon had descendants, and very likely that some of the uncon- 
nected names given in succeeding pages as probably of the family of Richard 
belong rather to his hypothetical family. Mention may be made in particular 
of an Andrew Lyon who in 1790 was one of the first pew owners in the first 
Episcopal Church In Trumbull near Bridgeport, and not far from Norwalk. 
Andrew Lyon (No. 160) of Norwalk 1793 seems not to have been his descendant. 

tJuly 5, 1699, John Edmunds purchased property at Fairfield, formerly be- 
longing to Richard Lyon from Richard Lyon, William Lyon, Samuel Lyon, 
Joshua Jennings, Samuel Smith, William Roberson and Esther Grumman; Nov. 
13, 1699, Joshua Jennings purchased property at Fairfield of Richard Lyon, 
Samuel Lyon, William Roberson, Samuel Smith and John Downs in behalf of 
Esther Grumman, deceased.

256 RICHARD LYON OF FAIRFIELD 

2, 1698. He died intestate and without issue, and his estate was 
divided April 11, 1699, between his "widow Mary, his brothers Richard, 
Samuel and William (Joseph was no longer living), his brothers-in- 
law Joshua Jennings, William Roberson and Samuel Smith, and his 
Bister Esther Grumman." 

3. II. 1. RICHARD^ LYON [RICHARD^] was born in Fairfield, 

Conn., about 1653. He married Mary , whose maiden name 

was probably Frye. From his brother's will we learn that his land 
adjoined that of Mihill Frye, from whom in 1676 he received a legacy 
of ten shillings. He lived in Fairfield, but late in life went to Redd- 
ing, where he died in January 1740, ae. 87. His wife was a charter 
member of the Congregational Church organized in Redding in 1729. 
He united with the same Church in 1733. He was therefore probably 
not the Richard Lyon spoken of by Rev. Dr. Burhams in the Church- 
man's Magazine (1832) as the first churchman in Redding, since that 
Richard was said to be "from Ireland" and to have died as early as 
1735. Nathan Lyon was also a Churchman; is it possible that there 
were two Nathans as well as two Richards? The writer [A. B. L.] 
inclines to the belief that the Irish Richard is a myth, although open 
to conviction on evidence. 

Children of Richard and Mary (Frye?) Lyon, born in Fairfield: 

•11. I. Samuel; b. Dec. 27, 1688 (T. R.); bapt. with Sarah and Ebenezer,

field). In 1695, according to Fairfield Co. Probate record, Joseph 
Lyon, husband of Mary Jackson, daughter of Joseph Jackson, acknowl- 
edges the receipt of his wife's legacy from his father-in-law, Joseph 
Seely, who married the administratrix of said Jackson's estate. His 
widow married John Bayley before Nov. 1700. Inventory of his 
estate presented March 11, 1698, shows a total value of £280 — 13 — 2. 
Joseph and his brother Moses must have died about the same time. 
His minor children were (1700) under the guardianship of their uncle, 
Samuel Lyon, who, together with his relict, Mary Bayley, was admin- 
istrator of the estate.

tJohn Banks settled first in Windsor, Conn., where he was town cleric He 
came later to Fairfield, Conn., and represented that place in the General Court, 
1651-61. In 1670 he was one of the proprietors of Rye, N. Y., and was Repre- 
sentative from Rye and Fairfield, as late as Oct. 1684. He died the following 
year. He was twice married: first to a daughter of Charles Taintor, of Wethers- 
fleld, Conn., and second to Mary, daughter of Thomas Fitch, and widow of 
Thomas Sherwood. His oldest son, John, married Abigail, daughter of Thomas 
Lyon, of Rye, while his youngest son, Benjamin, married Elizabeth, daughter of 
Richard Lyon, of Fairfield. 

§The children of Samuel Smith, baptized in Fairfield (Ch. R.) were; 1. 
Joseph; bapt. Feb. 17, 1694-5; 2, AblgaU; Oct. 25, 1696; 3, Sarah; April 17, 1698;

married. 



THIRD GENERATION 259 

11. III. 3. SAMUEL' LYON [Richard', Richard'] was born in 
Fairfield, Conn., Dec. 27, 1688. Nothing is positively known of his 
history. He may have removed to Redding, as his father and his 
brother Nathan certainly did. The only record found in that place 
which could relate to him is that of the baptism in Aug. 1738, of a 
Samuel Lyon, son of Samuel. This might possibly be a son, — more 
likely a grand-son of this Samuel. Absence of other records in Redd- 
ing malves it doubtful whether either hypothesis has any foundation 
in fact. The name of Samuel Lyon, Jr., appears in a list of the 
charter members of the Congregational Church in Greenfield in 1726. 
Other Lyon names in the list are John, Joseph and Benjamin. John 
was no doubt a brother of Samuel, the other two probably cousins, 
although one or both may have been brothers. We find in Fairfield 
a Caleb Lyon, son of Samuel, whose father could not have been 
Samuel Lyon No. 22, since he was born before 1718, the year of the 
marriage of the latter. 

Children of Samuel and ( 1 I^yoniJ 

♦43. I. (?) Caleb; bapt. Feb. 19. 1716; could not have been son of No. 5 
(not mentioned in will), or of No. 22, (married in 1718.) 

44. II. (?) Thomas [no record of birth or parentage. Abigail, wife of 
Thomas Lyon, was admitted to Greenfield Church, March 16, 1740. Redding 
Land Records, 1773 (II. 57) mention "Gershom Lyon. .Jr., son of Tliomas." who 
would seem to have been almost certainly a grandson of Richard No. 3.]

13. III. 3. EBENEZER' LYON [Richard=, Richard'] was born 
in Fairfield, Conn., Aug. 15, 1694. The place and date of his death

He was one of the pioneer settlers in Norwich, Conn., in 1722.

49. IV. (?) Abel [no record]; m. May 11, 1757, Sarah Olmstead (Fair- 
field T. R.) Abel may have been son of Samuel No. 22. There is no clew to his 
parentage, nor have we any further record. We may, however, keep the 
name in mind in connection with the Abel Lyon who lived a generation later 
In Pulton County, N. T. See Lyon Memorial, Massachusetts Families, p. 316. 

14. III. 3. DANIEL' LYON [Ricbard=, Richard'] was born in 
Fairfield, Conn., Oct. 3, 1697, and died in Redding, date not ascertained. 



JThe following may also have been children of this Samuel: 
Elnathan; bapt. Aug. 10, 1710 [more probably son of No. 5. and died In 
Infancy]; Mary; bapt. Feb. 19, 1716; Hannah; bapt. June (?) 4, 1721; Stephen; 
bapt. Feb. 15, 1724. The last two may have been children of No. 22.

THIRD GENERATION 261 

He married in Fairfield, Aug. 7, 1718, Sarah Jennings, and he and his 
wife [also Benjamin Lyon and wife and the wife of Richard Lyon] were 
among the charter members of the Congregational Church of Redd- 
ing (1729). They lived in the south eastern part of the town, now 
Easton. In May 1725, Daniel Lyon and his brother Nathan were 
petitioners for a grant of land in Redding. 

Children of Daniel and Sarah (Jennings) Lyon: 
•50. I. Daniel; b. Fairfield. Aug. 1, 1719 (T. R.); bapt. Nov. 22, 1719.

Church; res. New Marlboro, Mass. 

*55. VL Timothy; b. Nov. 5, 1734 (Fairfield T. R.) 

56. VII. Jonathan; b. May 6, 1741; mentioned in land records In Redding 
1773 as "brother of Gershom Lyon, Sr.", and as "son of Daniel"; bapt. in Red- 
ding. Cong. Church, May 31, 1741. (Possibly son of Daniel Lyon No. 50 q. v.). 

16. III. 3. NATHAN^ LYON [Richard% Richard^] was born in 
Fairfield, Conn., Nov. 28, 1703, and died in Redding, Nov. 21, 1757, ae. 
54 (G. R.) ; buried in Redding Ridge Episcopal Church Cemetery. 
From Land Records of Redding (II. 62) it is learned that the name of 
his wife (widow) was Abigail. In 1729 at a meeting of the (Presby- 
terian) society of Redding, Nathan Lyon, Moses Knapp and Daniel 
Crofoot made strenuous objections to the "hiering" of any other than 
a minister of the Church of England.J In 1738 these same names 
appear in a list of seven parishioners of Mr. Beach. 

Children of Nathan [and Abigail] Lyon:t 
•57. I. Peter; m. 1753, Abigail Sherwood. 

58. II. John; Redding Land Records (II. 228; V. 10, 11) say "gone over 
to enemy; property confiscated"; he removed to Nova Scotia. 

59. III. Joseph; also "went over to the enemy"; m. May 21, 1761, (E. C. 
M. I. 72) Lois Sanford, daughter of Ephraim and Elizabeth (Mix) Sanford (Fair- 
field T. R., which says "Joseph Lyon, of Redding, son of Nathan") Lois (San- 
ford) Lyon d. Dec. 15, 1769, ae. 27 y. (G. R. Redding Ridge Episcopal Ch. Ceme- 
tery). Joseph's property was confiscated, but recovered by his widow. 

•60. IV. David; m. 1756, Hannah Sanford (T. R.) 

61. V. Eli; joiner; Taxed in Redding 1793. 



Jlf this Nathan was really the son of Richard Lyon of Fairfield, it would 
seem practically certain that the latter was the Richard Lyon. Churchman, 
spoken of by Dr. Burhams. The statement that that Richard died "as early 
as 1735" lacks as yet confirmation of documentary evidence. 

tLand Records of Redding contain the foHowing items: 1769 (II. 83, (379) 
"sons of Nathan Lyon. Samuel, Eli and John;" 1771 (I. 188, 218) "sons of Nathan 
Lyon. Sr., Capt. Henry, Eli, David:" (II. 53) "daughter of Nathan, Betty"; 
1773 (IL 131) "sons (of Nathan) Philo, Henry. Peter and David"; 1775 (IL 132). 
In the division of the estate of Nathan "wife Abigail, and sons. Henry, John, 
Peter and David."

RELATED LYON NAMES of uncertain parentage: 

125. Josiah; perhaps son of Ephraim, No. 27; married, March 1, 1768. 
Eunice Jennings, of North Fairfield (Greenfield Ch. R.). It was possibly the 
same Josiah who married afterwards Mrs. Amy (Whitney) Haynes, widow of 
Silas Haynes. She was born in Fairfield, June 6, 1747. Josiah Lyon was living 
in Redding In 1777, (Conn. Hist. Soc. VIL 338).

266 RICHARD LYON OF FAIRFIELD 

46. IV. 13. STEPHEN* LYON [Ebenezer* (?) Richard'. Rich- 
ard']. The question of his parentage remains in doubt. A Stephen 
Lyon (son of Bbenezer ?) was baptized Nov. 17, 1717, another Stephen 
(son of Samuel, No. 11 ?) was baptized Feb. 15, 1724. He married in 
Fairfield, July 21, 1747, Grace Webb (West Farms Ch. Rec). In 
Greenfield Ch. Rec. we find the entry: Grace Lyon, died Jan. 1774, 
ae. "upwards of 40 years." This may or may not refer to Grace 
(Webb) Lyon. No further record has been found of Stephen or his 
wife, but it seems very probable that Nehemiah Webb Lyon was their 
son. 

Children of Stephen and Grace (Webb) Lyon: 
•137. I. ?Nehemiah Webb; b. Weston, Conn., Aug. 16, 1749. 

138. II. ?Stephen. [There was a Stephen Lyon, Jr., private In the same 
company with Nehemiah Webb Lyon]. 

48. IV. 13. EBBNEZBR* LYON [Ebenezer', Richard^ Richard'] 
was born in Fairfield, Conn. June 10, 1722, and died in Easton Sept. 
3, 1801, ae. 80. (G. R. Rock House Cemetery). He (or more likely 
a son Ebenezer) married Martha Lane, daughter of John Lane (Red- 
ding Land Records, IV. 109). 

Daughter of Ebenezer and Martha (Lane) Lyon: 

139. I. Mary; b. 1776; d. Feb. 23, 1802, ae. 26 (G. R. Rock House Cem.). 
(If Mary was really daughter of Ebenezer Lyon, No. 48, there were probably 
other children). 

50. IV. 14. LIEUT. DANIEL* LYON [Daniel', Richard^ Rich- 
ard'] was born in Fairfield, Conn., Aug. 11, 1719. He settled in Red- 
ding and married first "Annah" who died soon after the birth 

of her only son, Jacob. He married second Ruth (Knapp) Wheeler, 
widow of Seth Wheeler, and daughter of Moses Knapp. In Redding 
Land Records he is called in 1769 (I. 8) Daniel Lyon, Jr., (although 
this may possibly refer to his son Daniel) ; in 1772 (I. 12) he is called 
Lieut. Daniel Lyon. In these records we find five sons named; 
Jabez (II. 18, 467), Gershom (III. 152) Daniel, "his third child" (I. 232), 
Jonathan (III. 429), and Seth (IV. 51). In a deed of land sold to him, 
Jacob Lyon, of New Ashford, Mass., calls him "my honored father." 
Redding Land Records mention the names, Mabel, Sarah, Mary and 
Huldah in such a connection that it may be inferred that they were 
daughters of Daniel. 

From the Colonial Records of Connecticut we learn that Daniel 
Lyon was appointed May 9, 1754, ensign of Eastern train band, parish 
of Redding (Vol. X, 263). March 17, 1756 he was appointed second 
lieutenant In the 7th Co., Capt. David Lacy, (X. 473). In May, 1762 



FOURTH GENERATION 267 

he was appointed Lieutenant of train band, East Division of Redding, 
In the 4th Regiment, his cousin Henry Lyon (No. 63) beng appointed 
at the same time Ensign (XIL 9). In Oct. 1768, he was appointed 
Lieutenant of the 16th Company, 11th Regiment (XIIL 98), In Oct. 
1769 he was appointed Deputy (i. e. representative) for Redding (XIII. 
235). He appears to have served in the Revolutionary war with the 
rank of Sergeant. The date of his death and place of his burial have 
not been ascertained.

"in 75th year" (G. R.); buried in Rock House Cemetery. He was 
baptized in Greenfield Church, July 3, 1726. He married April 25, 
1745, Mary Buckley, (West Farms Ch. R.); she was born in 1720, and 
died May 10, 1801; "in 81st year" (G. R., Rock House Cemetery).

Timothy Lyon was a private in Capt. James Smedley's militia com- 



tEll Read was son of Zalmon and Hannah Read, of Redding [originally 
Reading]. It is likely that Zalmon Lyon of a later generation derived his given 
name by inheritance or otherwise from this Zalmon Read, who was son of 
Colonel John Read of Boston; Colonel John being himself son of Hon. John Read, 
founder of the New England family. Ell Read died In Redding in 1842.

born probably in Fairfield, Conn., about 1720. He married May 10, 
1753, Abigail Sherwood (Norwalk T. R.), being then "of Redding." 
Redding Land Records, 1784 (II. 439, 442, III. 243) speak of "Peter 
Lyon 2nd, and Abigail, his wife," and give "their children. Walker Lyon, 
of Flushing, N. Y., Asahel (with wife Hannah), Anne (m. Abel Hill), 
Andrew and Betsey." In May 1770, a Peter Lyon was appointed En- 
sign of a Company of Militia in East Division of Redding (Col. Rec. 
Conn., XIII. 295). This may have been Peter Lyon, Jr., No. 162. 
The following year Peter was made Lieutenant in the same Company.

fusal to obey orders.

t The following line is believed to come from an authentic source. Eliphalet 
Lyon, son of Eliphalet and Eleanor "Wakeman Lyon, married Mary Perry. His 
eon, Ransom Lyon, born at Greenfield Hill, married Mary Ann Sterling and had a 
son, "Wesley Lyon, born in "Weston, Conn. "Wesley married Charlotte "Williams and 
had a daughter Adelaide who married Howard G. Badgley. If the foregoing 
record is correct, that of the text is of course in error, and Eliphalet No. 219 
was grandson, not son, of No. 100. Eliphalet Lyon Sr., is said to have lived 
to the age of ninety-seven years.

t It is the belief of Miss Sidney E. Lyon that this Ephraim was the Ephralm 
Lyon who settled in Ashford in eastern Connecticut, and married Esther Bennett, 
and was the grandfather of that gallant officer. General Nathaniel Lyon. An 
account of the descendants of Ephraim Lyon of Ashford will be found in the 
"Lyon Memorial, Massachusetts Families." It will be seen there that there Is 
some uncertainty about the ancestry of Ephraim of Ashford, but to the writer 
[A. B. L.] it seems almost certain that he belonged to one of the Lyon families 
of Windham Co., descended from William Lyon of Roxbury. It is very doubtful 
whether he was a son of Moses Lyon, of Woodstock and Brimfleld. More likely 
he may have been son of Seth Lyon [Thomas', Thomas^ William'] of Ashford, 
who had no recorded children born between 1734 and 1741. At all events the 
Lyon families of Windham County claim General Lyon as their kin.

260. Nathaniel (Lyons); of Stratford; possibly No. 67 or No. 76; wife 
Anna; daughter Rebecca Wilcoxson, b. Dec. 5, 1751 (Hist. Stratford and Bridge- 
port); another Stratford record reads " Lyon had James, bapt. March 

28, 1786."

130. V. 43. HEZBKIAH" LYON [Caleb*, SamueP, Richard^(?), 
Richard^] was born in Fairfield, Conn., Oct. 21, 1739. He married in 
Greenfield, March 1, 1764, Hannah Meeker. Nothing has been as- 
certained about their descendants, some of whom may very likely be 
among the "Related Names", (Nos. 252-267, and 376-382.) 

(Note that the records of this Hezekiah may easily have become confused 
with those of Hezekiah No. 99). 

137. V. 46. Nehemiah Webb'* Lyon [Stephen^?), Ebenezer^C?), 
Richard^ Richard'] was born in Weston, Conn. Aug. 16, 1759t, and 
died there in his one hundred and first year. He married, Aug. 26. 
1778, Sarah Treadwell (Weston T. R.). He was a revolutionary soldier, 
having enlisted in Najah Rennet's Company in 1781. He was recorded 
as a pensioner in Fairfield Co. in 1832, and in Weston in 1832, and 
remained on the pension roll until his death in 1860. His children 
nearly all lived to a good old age. 

Children of Nehemiah Webb and Sarah (Treadwell) Lyon (Weston T. R.): 

270. I. David; b. Jan. 29, 1779; d. 1875. ae. 96. 

•271. II. Samuel; b. Aug. 27, 1780; m. Sally Adams (D. A. R. Lineage 

Book) ; d. 1873, ae. 93. 

272. IIL Huldah; b. Jan. 4, 1783. 

278. IX. Jarvis; d. "ae. 56". 



tThere is much conjecture in the above account of the ancestry of Nehemiah 
Webb Lyon. It is maintained by some that he was the son of Gershom* Lyon 
(Daniel', Richard^, Richard'). Nlther line is fortified with documentary proofs. 



276 RICHARD LYON OF FAIRFIELD 

*273. IV. Clarissat ; b. Aug. 11, 1785; m. William Rowell (D. A. R. 
Lin. Book).

140. V. 50. JACOB' LYON [DanieP, Daniel', Richard^ Richard^] 
was born in Redding, Conn, about 1740, and died probably in New 
Ashford, Mass., in April 1776§. His will was probated at Pittsfield, Mass., 
July 3, 1781. It mentions only "wife Hannah." On March 2, 1784, 
Asahel Gregory was appointed guardian of Seth Lyon, minor son of 
Jacob Lyon, late of New Ashford. 

Jacob Lyon was one of the pioneer settlers in New Ashford, Mass.; 
he bought land (200 acres) north of Lanesboro, from Joseph Dwight's 
executors; deed dated April 25, 1770; sold 150 acres of this to Jabez 
Lyon of Redding, probably his half brother; deed dated Jan. 9, 1771; 
on same date Jabez deeds again 50 acres of this same land to Hannah, 
wife of Jacob Lyon. 

Jacob Lyon was married March 21, 1767, at Redding, Conn., by 
Rev. Nathaniel Bartlett, to Hannah Wheeler, the only daughter of 
Seth and Ruth (Knapp) Wheeler.} She was born at Danbury, Conn., 



t Clarissa (Lyon) Rowell had a daughter Julia, who married Hanson 
Bradley and had a daughter Mary Eliza Bradley (D. A. R. ), who became the 
wife of Lewis Van Buren Hubbard (D. A. R. Lineage Book). 

§Jacob Lyon of New Ashford had a double in the person of Jacob Lyon of 
Gageboro, who died in the Revolutionary Army, April 15, 1776. This Jacob 
was born in Woodstock. Windham Co., Conn., Feb. 29, 1740, a descendant of 
William Lyon of Roxbury. He removed to Berkshire Co., Mass. in 1770, set- 
tling in Gageboro, now Winsor, only a short distance from Lanesboro. The 
parallel between this history and that of Jacob of Redding and New Ashford 
is remarkably close; for completeness. Jacob of New Ashford ought to have 
had a record of revolutionary service, as his kinsmen in Lanesboro had. 

JThomas' Wheeler and wife Ann, came to Concord, Mass., with several 
children in 1638: in 1644 he removed to Fairfield, Conn., where he was one of 
the proprietors of the township, and a prominent citizen. He died there in 
1654. Will dated Jan. 16, 1653/4, probated Aug. 23, 1654. 

Sergeant John= Wheeler, second son of Thomas^, was probably born In 
England. He settled at Black Rock, where he owned a large tract of land. 
He was representative from Fairfield, Conn., in 1671, '72 and '77. Among his 
descendants was Vice President William A. Wheeler. The inventory of John 
W^heeler's estate was filed March 8, 16S9-90. His widow left a will dated 
Feb'y 21, 1702/3, probated March 24, following. 

Joseph' Wheeler, son of John, born in 1674, the seventh of thirteen chil- 
dren, married Dec. 7, 1705, Deborah Nichols, daughter of Ephraim Nichols, 
of Fairfield. Will dated March 9, 1758; probated July 20, 1759. His widow 
and five children survived him. 

Seth* Wheeler, son of Joseph, was born at Fairfield, Conn., March 26, 
1721. He married Ruth Knapp. daughter of Moses Knapp, Oct. 27, 1746, at 
Redding, Conn. He died in 1751, and his widow afterwards married Daniel 
Lyon (No. 50) of Redding, as his second wife. 

Hannah, 5 only daughter of Seth and Ruth (Knapp) Wheeler, was born at 
Danbury, Conn., March 17, 1747. 



FIFTH GENERATION 277 

March 17, 1747, and died at Herrick, Susquehanna Co., Pa., Saturday, 
Dec. 16, 1837. Early left a widow, she married again William Green, 
who had been a sailor in his youth, and had served in the Revolu- 
tionary War. They had three sons: John, William and Lazarus, 
and two daughters, Esther, who died young, and Mabel, who married 
William Holmes and emigrated to Michigan or Ohio. William Green 
died at Clifford, Pa., in 1810. Hannah married for her third husband 
about 1819, in Lima, N. Y., a Mr. Jerome, who died the following 
year. She died at Herrick, Susquehanna Co., Pa., Saturday, Dec. 16, 
1837, and is buried in the Lyon burying ground there by the side of 
her son, Walter Lyon. William Green is also buried there.

Danbury, Conn.), April 19, 1756, and died before Dec. 1799. He went 
with his brother to Massachusetts, making his home in Lanesboro. 
In his father's will in 1793, he is said to be "of New Milford." He 
served, as his brothers Jabez and Kimberley did, in the Revolutionary 
war. He was a private in Capt. Asa Barnes' Company, Col. Benjamin 
Ruggles Woodbridge's Regiment; enlisted May 25, 1775; service two 
months and eight days. In 1777 he joined the Company of Capt. 
David Wheeler. According to the report of the Bureau of Pensions, 
dated April 29, 1905, he was in the Battle of Bunker Hill. He was 
probably twice married, but no record has been found of the first 
marriage. According to the aforesaid Report of the Bureau of Pen- 
sions, he married Jan. 1, 1786, at Lanesboro, Mass., Sarah Lockwood, 
who, as his widow, applied for a pension Aug. 19, 1843, being then 
73 years of age, and living in Moriah, Essex Co., N. Y. According to 
the same Report, John Lyon died at Moriah, N. Y., Feb. 7, 1817. Thl9 
does not agree with the statement above, which is believed to be 
correct. No record has been found of the descendants of Doctor 
John Lyon.

288 RICHARD LYON OF FAIRFIELD 

In the history of Susquehanna Co., Pennsylvania, by Miss Em ; 
Blackman, the following may be found: "Walter Lyon came from 
New Ashford, Mass., in 1792 with his wife and one child, on a rudely 
fashioned sled; a yoke of steers and an ax. His step-father, William 
Green, drove a heifer and carried a pair of steelyards, all their worldly 
effects. Walter Lyon bought of John Clifford 400 acres of land, on 
which he afterwards built in 1814 the large house in which he lived and 
died. Joining this tract he bought 100 acres of William Poyntell, a 
land holder, who died in 1811 in Philadelphia. He paid for all this 
land by lumbering on the Deleware. He also had 200 acres additional. 
He had five sons to each of whom he gave a fine farm." In early 
times Walter Lyon was obliged to take his grain to Great Bend to 
be ground, carrying it on his back to and fro, a distance of nearly 
thirty miles. Once when the water was low he waited three weeks 
for his grist and hired out to husk corn. In the meantime his family 
had only potatoes and milk to live upon, and were in great fear for 
his safety, as his route lay through forests then traversed by bears, 
panthers and wolves, and broken only by a few clearings. He was an 
active man in town and county affairs, being Justice of the Peace, a 
Major in the 76th Regiment, Pennsylvania Militia and a County Com- 
missioner, besides being often entrusted with other public business. 
He went on foot to attend court at Wilkesbarre before the organization 
of Susquehanna County.

the pioneer days. Once she started to get a pail of water from the 
spring under the big beech tree (on the farm now owned by Walter 
S. Lyon, great-grandson of Walter, No. 280). Hannah was carrjang 
one of her little brothers on her back and leading another, the water 
pail in the other hand. It was all woods there then and only the path 
to the spring. Hannah saw an old bear and two cubs in her path, but 
she did not run and scream, but shook her water pail at the bear 
and said "shoo!". The cubs ran into the woods, and after a few 
growls the old bear followed them. Hannah then went on after the 
water.

451. VII. 821. THEODATUS TIMOTHY' LYON [Timothy*, 
Thomas^ John*, John', SamueP, Richard'] was born in Lima, N. Y., Jan. 
23, 1813; died South Haven, Mich., Feb. 6, 1900. He came with his 
parents while yet a school boy, to Plymouth, Mich. After teaching 
School, and helping to construct and manage a railroad he became 
interested in experimental horticulture, and this became his life work. 
His first experiments were made at Monroe, Mich., but later he located 
in the fruit belt of Western Michigan, and there, on a ten acre tract of 
Bandy land, he carried on for more than a quarter of a century his 
studies in pomology, becoming one of the highest authorities In 
America in this specialty. In 1892 the state of Michigan rented and 
made a sub-station of Mr. Lyon's plot, and the citizens of South Haven 
bought and donated to the state five acres adjoining it. Mr. Lyon was 
able thus to pursue his studies to better advantage, the Stat© providing 
for the publication of his valuable annual reports. He had under 
observation more than 1500 varieties of fruits, and his reports as to 
the vigor, productiveness, hardiness, etc. of each, are invaluable to 
the fruit grower. Mr. Lyon was employed also by the United States 
Department of Agriculture to make a complete list of the names and 
synonyms of every variety of fruit cultivated in America — a work for 
which his wide practical knowledge of the subject preeminently fitted 
him. 

He married Dec. 6, 1838, Marilla Gregory, born April 9, 1819, 
daughter of William Sherwood and Lydia Perrin Gregory. They had 
no children.

His memory was remarkable. His mother says that when he was 
three years of age he could repeat the Ten Commandments and many 
other portions of Scripture. He had read the Bible through before 
he was eight years old, and so thoroughly had he studied it that If 
a text was read to him he could tell the Book in the Bible where it was 
found, and in most instances, the chapter. He was considered when a 
young man, the finest historian in Northeastern Pennsylvania, and 
he was an orator of remarkable magnetic influence and eloquence. 
Failure of health, brought on by over-study was the cause of his 
giving up the practice of the law when nearly ready to be admitted 
to the bar. He was Justice of the Peace for several terms. He mar- 
ried, Oct. 15, 1876, Emeline (Burdick) Burns, widow of Homer Burns.

at the age of twenty-four. In 1872 he opened a branch at Guelph 
in Canada, and that place has ever since been his home. In 1873 
he sold out his interests in the United States, and secured full con- 
trol of the business in Canada, which he pushed with characteristic 
energy and with most gratifying success. He became soon the largest 
individual publisher in Canada. In 1884, according to official reports, 
forty per cent, of the total manufactured goods exported from Toronto, 
wh'ere his publishing plant was located, were his publications. He 
established branches of his business in Australia, South Africa, South 
America and in the East and the West Indies, and has sent out to 
these countries as his agents more than five hundred men from On- 
tario. 

In 1892 he opened a wholesale furniture business in Buffalo, N. Y., 
which within two years thereafter, disposed of the output of eight 
large factories. Mr. Lyon has always had unbounded faith in Canada. 
In the early eighties he employed Prof. Macoun, Dominion Govern- 
ment Botanist and explorer of the Northwest, to write a book on 
that country, which he published, and which, by disseminating authen- 
tic information about this hitherto almost unknown region, has done 
much to develop its business possibilities. Mr. Lyon himself made 
large investments in lands in Winnipeg, Port Arthur, Fort William and 
the farming regions of Manitoba, worth today many hundred times 
the original purchase price. The large fortune he has acquired is 
the legitimate reward of untiring energy, directed by rare business 
sagacity, with no sugg-estion of the taint of unfair dealing or sharp 
practices. Mr. Lyon has now practically retired from active business, 
and aside from looking after his real estate investments, devotes his 
time largely to municipal and other public matters. He is President 
of the Guelph Radial Railway Company, Director of the Guelph 
Junction Railway, Vice-President of the Board of Trade, Director of 
the Home Life Insurance Company of Toronto, etc. He is also an 
Alderman of the City of Guelph. 

He married, Dec. 4, 1873, Lucy Boult, born July 30, 1852, daughter 
of Stephen! and Sarah (Jeffries) Boult of Guelph, Ont.

NATHANIEL LYON, 

OF WARREN, CONN. 

NATHANIEL LYONf, whose home in Connecticut was for some 
years in Warren, Litchfield Co. would seem to have been most pro- 
bably a descendant of Richard Lyon of Fairfield, presumably in the 
fourth generation. He may have been Nathaniel* (No, 67) [Nathan- 
iel', William', Richard^] born Fairfield, Dec. 28, 1710, or Nathaniel* 
(No. 76) Benjamin', William', Richard^] bapt. Fairfield, Aug. 8, 1726, 
or he may have been a son of the former of these. 

One of these two was probably the Nathaniel Lyon of Stratford, 
who had a daughter Rebecca Wilcoxson, born Dec. 5, 1751, his wife's 
name being Anna (Hist. Stratford and Bridgeport). It is not im- 
possible that Nathaniel came from one of the Windham Co. families, 
among which we find the names Ebenezer, Nathaniel, and Spencer, 
but, although there were migrations from Windham Co. to Western 
Massachusetts and Vermont as early as 1750, the name Merritt, so 
constantly recurring in this family points almost certainly to Fairfield 
rather than Windham County. Nathaniel Lyon married Sally Mer- 
rimant, said to have been "born in Connecticut." They lived for a 
time in Warren, Conn., but finally removed to Lebanon, Madison Co., 
N. Y. 

Children of Nathaniel and Sally (Merrlman) Lyon; the first three said to 
have been born In Warren, Conn. : 

1501. I. Spencer. 

•1602. II. Ebenezer; b. April 5, 1764; d. Nelson, N. Y. 

1603. III. Nathan. 

1504. IV. LoTlna [Louisa] ; m. Jacob Smith. 



tTo Nathaniel Lyon of Warren Is assigned the arbitrary number 1500. 

tThe fact that Ebenezer Lyon, son of Nathaniel, went to Wallingford, Vt.. 
makes it very probable that Sally Merriman was of the Merriman family of 
Wallingford, Conn., whence the colony went which founded the Vermont settle- 
ment of the same name (1761): Capt. Nathaniel Merriman (1613-1693) was one 
of the original settlers in Wallingford, Conn. It may be noted that his son 
John married Hannah Lines of New Haven. Sarah Merriman, born Jan. 28, 
1742, daughter of Samuel' [Samuel', Nathaniel'] and Sarah Wilcher, may have 
been the Sally Merriman who married Nathaniel Lyon. 

There were at least three other Sarahs, cousins of the one Just mentioned, 
but ten to twenty years older, the name being apparently a favorite one in the 
family. There was in Wallingford, Conn, a family of Spencers, which may have 
something to do with the name of Nathaniel's oldest son.

moved to Nelson, Madison Co., N, Y. He died April 4, 1829. She 
died Feb. 6, 1849. He was a Justice of the Peace In Nelson in 1808t 
(Hist. Madison Co.).

1522. XIV. Mary; b. June 28, 1809; d. 1858; m. Joseph Case; moved 
to Illinois about 1835; 3 children. 



tone may suspect from this date that in this record two families have been 
confounded. Nathaniel indeed may have been twice married, but it Is perhaps 
equally possible that some of the above were his grand thildren. It Is said 
that Nathan, Nathaniel and Ira settled in Ohio. 

The name "Merritt" suggests immediately some connection with Greenwich, 
Conn., or Rye, N. Y., and the same name occurs again among descendants of 
Ebenezer. 

tit is stated in Hammond's History of Madison Co.. that Jabez Lyon of 
Nelson was commissioned Lieutenant of Militia In 1807. From this It would 
appear that Ebenezer was not the only Lyon who came to Madison County; It 
Is probable that Jabez and Ebenezer were related.

Pratt of New Bedford, Mass. (or of Hartford, Conn.), and went as a 
pioneer into the wilds of Alleghany County. They lived there at first 
in a log cabin, with blankets hung up in place of doors. Often the 
deer, fleeing from wolves, would rush into the cabin seeking protec-

WILLIAM LYON, 

OF NEW HAVEN, CONN. 

The ancestry of William Lyon of Boston and New Haven (clrc. 
1695-1743) has not yet been ascertained, but he was almost certainly 
not of either of the Fairfield families. It is likely that he belonged 
to one of the Dorchester families, or possibly even may have been 
a grandson of William of Roxbury. Boston records give us the fact 
of his marriage, Dec. 9, 1714, to Experience Hayward [Howard], and 
note the birth of three children: 1. William, born April 10, 1716; 
2. Many, born Dec. 16, 1717; 3. Experience, born March 8, 1719. We 
find him some years later, probably about 1730-35, the purchaser of 
a part of the old homestead of Samuel Gilbert of New Haven (d. 1721). 
He was a tailor, and it is stated that he was the first Lyon to cqme 
to New Haven. The children who came with him to New Haven were 
William and Experience. After the death of the first William, the 
old house was occupied for a time by the widow and her two children. 
In 1747 it was sold to Silence Hayward, evidently a sister of Exper- 
ience. In 1754 it was purchased by John Brainerd who had become 
the husband of Experience Lyon. John Brainerd, born at Haddam, 
Conn., Feb. 28, 1722, son of Hon. Hezeklah and Dorothy (Mason) 
Brainerd, was a younger brother of David Brainerd, the devoted mis- 
sionary to the Indians. John was a graduate of Yale College 1746. 
After the death of David (1747) John succeeded him, laboring with 
equal zeal and success, albeit under great discouragements, in the 
same field in New Jersey. He afterwards preached in Newark, and 
elsewhere in New Jersey, settling finally in Deerfleld, where he died 
March 18, 1781. Experience (Lyon) Brainerd had died many years 
before (1757), and shortly afterwards two of their three children. The 

third, Mary Brainerd, married Dr. Ross of New Jersey. John 

Brainerd married a second wife, a widow, Mrs. Experience Price, who 
survived him and died in 1793. They had no children. 

William Lyon, son of William and Experience Hayward Lyon, 
married, April 24, 1747, Lois Mansfield and was father of Col. William 
Lyon, born March 6, 1748; d. Oct. 12, 1830 (G. R. New Haven Ceme- 
tery), who took a prominent part in the Revolutionary history of New 
Haven, and later became president of the New Haven Bank. 



HON. LUCIUS LYON, 

OF MICHIGAN. 

Without attempting to settle the question of the ancestry of this 
eminent mant, we offer here a brief sketch of his life. He was bom 
In Shelburne, Vt. Feb. 26, 1800; son of Asa Lyon a farmer but a man 
highly esteemed in the community in which he lived. [Note that Rev. 
Asa Lyon of South Hero, Vermont, married a Shelburne lady and was 
a contemporary of this Asa]. Hi's mother was Sarah Atwater, daugh- 
ter of Ambrose Atwater of Wallingford, Conn. Lucius studied engin- 
eering and land surveying in Burlington, Vt. At the age of twenty 
two he went to Detroit, Mich., and was appointed by the U. S. Surveyor 
General one of his deputies for the district northwest of the Ohio. 
He was elected delegate from the Territory of Michigan to U. S. 
Congress and served as long as Michigan remained a territory. 
He was a member of the convention called to form a constitution for 
the new State. He was particularly active in the convention in se- 
curing the adoption of those provisions by which public lands were 
set apart to secure a permanent -endowment for the educational in- 
stitutions of the State. He was elected by the first State Legislature 
Senator in Congress and served in that capacity until 1839 when he 
removed his residence to Grand Rapids and devoted himself to devel- 
oping the natural resources of that part of the state. Subsequently 
he was appointed by President Polk U. S. Surveyor General for the 
States of Ohio, Michigan and Indiana, his office to be located In 
Detroit as a condition of acceptance. He was always actively Inter- 
ested in public affairs, and was one of the first Board of Regents ap- 
pointed by Governor Mason in 1837. In his earlier days he was one 
of those interested in the Detroit Hydraulic Company which held 



tJonathan Lyon, probably No. 141, came to Shelburne, Vt. In 1788, from 
Bedding, Conn., with sons Robert and WlUlam and three daughters. Jonathan 
died In the spring of 1791. Asa may possibly have been his son. It Is perhaps 
more likely that he was No. 154, a cousin of Jonathan. We know that brothers 
of both Jonathan and Asa settled in Berkshire Co., Mass. The Rev. Asa Lyon 
from VVoodstock, Conn., who settled in South Hero, Vt., 1795, was of an 
entirely different family, and is mentioned In this connection merely to say that 
he could not have been the father of Lucius. Lucius Lyon was the oldest son 
\n a family of seven children. It Is stated that his ancestral line in Connec- 
ticut runs back to the earliest days of the New Haven Colony. For a detailed 
account of his life, see Mich. Pioneer Collections, Vol. XIII.

a franchise for supplying the city with water. The plant of the com- 
pany was purchased by the City in 1836. In Grand Rapids, Lyon 
Street was named in his honor. Lucius Lyon remained a bachelor, 
sharing his home in his later y^ears with a maiden sister. He died 
In Detroit, Sept. 24, 1851. 



LYON PIONEERS IN MICHIGAN. 



The name Lyon appears first in Michigan, so far as known to the 
writer, about 1780, when there was at the military post at Michlll 
Mackinac a Benjamin Lyon, of whose antecedents, however, nothing 
kas been ascertained. He seems not to have become a permanent resi- 
dent in Michigan. 

In 1822 Lucius Lyon came to the territory from Vermont, as has 
already been stated. He was almost certainly of the family of 
Richard Lyon of Fairfield, Four years later Timothy Lyon of the 
same family (No. 321 of the foregoing record) came to Plymouth, Mich., 
from New York State. Next, about 1830, Samuel Lyon, a descendant 
of Thomas Lyon of Rye, came from New York to Ann Arbor. Some 
of his descendants still live in Michigan, at Scio, St. John's and else- 
where. 

Some descendants of William Lyon of Roxbury have settled In 
Michigan — none at any very early date. Among them may be men- 
tioned particularly Emerson Lyon (No. 764) who settled in Jackson, 
and Royal C. Lyon (No. 1009) who came to Bengal 1853. The family 
of Henry Lyon was represented by Isaac Lyon (No. 727 In the record), 
at one time prominently engaged in the lumber industry of the state 
From New York State, of unknown ancestry, came Clorinda Lyon 
died Summit, Jackson Co., Nov. 20, 1899, ae. 87 y., and (about 1856) 
three sons and a married daughter of Daniel Lyon of Walworth, 
Wayne Co. (See Lyon memorial, Mass. Families, p. 313.) Of Horatio 
Lyon, who died at Eagle, Clinton Co., Aug. 21, 1887. ae. 82, having 
lived at Eagle more than 40 years, nothing is known to the writer. 

J. B. Lyon, an old resident of Flint, Mich., who died about 1906 
was of a Vermont family whose origin has not been traced, descended 
perhaps from Richard. The family removed about 1790-1800 to New

York State, settling mostly in Ontario Co. There was six brothers: 
1. Simeon, settled at Naples, N. Y., and died there; 2. Alanson, also 
died in Naples; 3. Justus, died at Clymer, Cataraugus Co., N. Y.; 4. 
Jonathan, removed finally to Illinois, and died there; 5. Joshua, came 
to Naples about 1800 and died there; 6, Oliver, died in Richmond, 
Ontario Co., N. Y. There were also several sisters who came to New 
York State. The parents, names not ascertained, died also in Naples, 
N. Y. The youngest son of Joshua, J. B. Lyon, born Nov. 1819, came 
as a pioneer to Michigan and settled in Flint. 

There remain for more extended notice three prominent names 
belonging to a Lyon family of Shelburne Vt., from which place also 
Hon. Lucius Lyon came. Presumably these were of the family of 
Richard Lyon of Fairfield, yet the evidence is inconclusive. We know 
that In 1788, a Jonathan Lyon with sons Robert and William, also four 
daughters, came to Shelburne from Redding, Conn. This was no doubt 
No, 141 of the foregoing record. 

Another Lyon, Timothy, came to Shelburne as early as 1795. That 
name was not uncommon in the family of Richard Lyon, yet this 
particular Timothy has not been identified. Very possibly he may 
have been Timothy of Lanesboro, Mass., No. 156. The Lyons who 
came to Michigan were of this family. § 

TIMOTHY LYON married Mary Hawley. Among his children were: 
1. Truman Hawley, born Shelburne, Feb. 24, 1801 and 2. Edward, 
born Shelburne, June 12, 1805. Truman Hawley Lyon came to Lyons, 
Michigan 1836. He kept a hotel in that place, became a Justice of 
the Peace and held other local oflices. He was superintendent of 
light houses on Lake Michigan, and let contracts for their construction. 
In 1840 he went to Grand Rapids, where he kept a hotel and was a 
merchant and for many years post-master. He was State Senator 1853. 
Died Sept. 14, 1872. His wife, whose maiden name was Lucinda 
Farnham, survived him, and a few years ago was still living, ae. 91. 
Judge Truman H. Lyon had seven sons and one daughter. 

EDWARD LYON, son of Timothy and Mary (Hawley) Lyon, in 
his early years was engaged in the steam boat business on Lake Cham- 



SAsa Lyon, father of Lucius may have beea No. 154. This would fall m 
with the hypothesis that the Timothy Lyon who also went to Shelburne, Vt., 
wa« No. 156, as suggested In the text.

plain.t He went to Cleveland about 1833 and kept the best hotel In 
that city for several years. In 1836 he came to Detroit and thence 
to Ionia County, Mich., where he founded the town of Lyons. In 1840 
he returned to Detroit and bought the National Hotel, where after- 
wards stood the Russell House, and now Us successor, the Pontchar- 
train. This he kept six years, after which he assumed the manage- 
ment of the Michigan Exchange, and for forty years maintained there 
the reputation he had won of realizing the ideal host. 

JAMES D. LYON, eldest son of Judge Truman H. Lyon was bom 
in Livingston Co., N. Y., Jan. 15, 1825. He came to Michigan in 
1836. He was deputy Post-master in Grand Rapids 1861-1865; Constable 
1852, Assessor 1856, City Treasurer 1869, City Marshal 1872. In 1848 
he established a book and stationery business in Grand Rapids, A 
brother, C. D. Lyon, is of the firm Eaton, Lyon & Co. Another 
brother, Farnham Lyon, keeps the Bancroft House in Saginaw. 

TRUMAN HAWLEY LYON, JR., another son of Judge Truman H. 
Lyon, was born at Parishville, St. Lawrence Co., N. Y., Feb. 24, 1826. 
In 1836 the family moved to Michigan. He was in Detroit 1847-1850, 
with his uncle, in Michigan Exchange Hotel; returned to Grand Rapids 
and was in drug business there 1859-1861; in 1870 became proprietor 
of Sweet's Hotel. He married first, Nov. 1851, at Grand Rapids, Miss 
Delia Morton, daughter of Russell Morton. They had two children. 
He married second Miss Eliza Blair of Grand Rapids, sister of James 
Blair, Esq., and by her had one daughter. 



tDan Lyon, of Burlington, was for nearly twenty years (18 25-184'J) Captain 
of one or another of five passenger steamers that ran on Lake Champlaln. 
between Burlington and Plattsburgh, and won the admiration of travellers of 
that day. It is likely that he was of the same family as Edward.

REV. PHILIP LYON, who was settled at one time In NapoU, 
Chautauqua Co., N. Y., is believed by his grandson, Ernest Neal Lyon. 
to have been of the family of Richard, of Fairfield. The belief aeema 
to have no definite foundation, since it postulates also kinship with 
both General Nathaniel Lyon of Ashford, and Mary Lyon, whose grand- 
father was of Sturbridge, Mass. Philip Lyon is said to have been 
born in Northampton, Mass. This together with the fact that the 
name Philipt occurs among descendants in Masaachusetts of William 
Lyon of Roxbury, Inclines one to look rather to Woodstock than to 
Fairfield for the ancestors of this Baptist minister. The question 
cannot, however, be settled by any evidence in hand. All that has 
been ascertained is that Philip married a Northampton girl, Susan 
Curtis, and that they had a son, Adoniram Judson Lyon, born in 
Napoli, Chautauqua Co., N. Y. 

ADONIRAM JUDSON LYON [Philip] was graduated from Mad- 
ison (now Colgate) University, and from Hamilton Theological Semi- 
nary and became a Baptist minister. He was pastor in Delaware and 
in Lancaster, Ohio, and in Greenfield, Mass., and resides (1905) In 
Huntington, O. He married at Fabius, N. Y., June 24, 1868, Mary E. 
Wheaton, daughter of Elmer and Ann E. (Stevens) Wheaton of Fabius. 

Children of Adoniram J. and Mary E. (Wheaton) Lyon: 

I. Frederick W.; b. Delaware, O., July 3, 1870; d. Greenfield, Mass., Jan. 

14, 1876. 

II. Ernest Neal; b. Greenfield, Mass., Oct. 26, 1873. 

III. Grace V.; b. Rockport, Mass., Feb. 9, 1876. 

IV. Arthur H.; b. New Berlin, N. T., May 18, 1887. 

ERNEST NEAL LYON [Adoniram J., Philip], born in Greenfield, 
Mass., Oct. 26, 1873. Graduate of Colgate University (B. A. 1897). 

He is by pro- 
fession a teach- 
er, having been 
Prof, of Eng- 
lish Literature in Marion, Ala. Military Institute 1887-90; in Mount 
Hermon School, Northfield, Mass. 1900-02, and In Manual Training 
High School In Brooklyn. Address, 188 Prospect Place. Brooklyn, 
N. Y. He married, March 4, 1904, in Brooklyn, Amelia Stanner, daugh- 
ter of and Christine (Tietzel) Stanner. He is an occasional

died April 4, 1907, at South Bend, Ind., where for thirty-three years 
he had been, as a journalist, an influential member of the community. 
It is stated in the obituary notice printed in his own paper, the South 
Bend Tribune, that six brothers and sisters survived him: William 
Lyon, of Fostoria, O.; Dr. Thomas B. Lyon, of Raton, N. M.; George 
Lyon, of Chicago, 111.; Mrs. Chapman, of Denver, Col.; Mrs. Libbie 
Cutler, of Elkhart, Ind., and Mrs. William Landolt, of Wauwatosa,

ERRATA AND NOTES 393 

RICHARD HILL LYON removed from Connecticut with his parents 
in 1856 and settled in Ypsilanti, Mich, To a large degree, he was self- 
educated. He learned the printers' trade in Decatur, Pawpaw and St. 
Joseph, Mich., and in Chicago, but it was not until 1874 that he took 
up newspaper work. He was employed first in the composing room of 
the South Bend Tribune, but his energy and talent soon secured for 
him a position as reporter. In 1874 he became city editor and In 1892 
associate editor, a position which he held until failing health con- 
strained him to resign Dec. 2, 1905. He continued, however, as long 
as he lived to contribute to the columns of the Tribune as a special 
writer, particularly on matters connected with local history, in which 
he was deeply interested. It was through his initiative that the 
Northern Indiana Historical Society was organized, he being Its first 
vice-president. In collaboration with Prof. Charles H. Bartlett, of 
Chicago, he published the very readable historical sketch, "La Salle 
in the Valley of the St. Joseph." Mr. Lyon was enthusiastically devoted 
10 music. For thirty years, with few intervals, he directed the music 
in the First Presbyterian church in South Bend. He organized the 
St. James male quartette, one of the finest in northern Indiana. 
During presidential campaigns the work of his glee clubs was an In- 
fluential factor in determining the election returns. He took an active 
part in politics, as he did in all the social and civic life of the com- 
munity in which he lived. His generous nature and his ready sym- 
pathies won for him the warm personal friendship of all associated 
with him and his death was felt as a great public calamity. 

Mr. Lyon was married in 1876 to Miss Frances A. Kurtz, of Buffalo. 
N. Y., the marriage taking place in Kalkaska, Mich. For many years 
they lived in their beautiful home, 405 Lamont Terrace. Chapin park, 
where on April 6, 1907, the friends and relatives gathered to pay a 
last tribute of respect to one universally honored and loved. The 
deceased sleeps now in Riverview cemetery.

Page 373, William Lyon of New Haven. From cemetery records 
in New Haven, the following additional facts have been obtained: 
William Lyon, of an ancient family in Buckingham, came to Boston, 
Mass., Sept. 1713. He married in Boston the following year and lived 
there several years; then moved to New Haven. He died in Barbadoes, 
whither he had gone for his health, March, 1726, ae. 39. Experience 
(Howard) Lyon, his relict, daughter of John Howard "of Massachu- 
setts," died Sept. 7, 1751, ae. 64. The older daughter, Experience, 
who married Rev. John Brainerd, died in Brunsvrtck, N. J., Sept. 17, 
1757. The younger daughter, Mary, died Sept. 16, 1742, ae. 26. The 
son, William Lyon, seems to have been twice married, first, as stated 
on p. 373, to Lois Mansfield [possibly an error], second to Elizabeth 
Maltby, born Saybrook, Sept. 4, 1724, died Oct. 16, 1810, ae. 81. By 
his first wife (?) he had a son Williams (Col. William Lyon); by his 
second wife he had a son Nathaniel, born Nov. 13, 1762. William2 
died Jan. 31, 1767, ae. 51. , 

Col. Williams Lyon, born March 6, 1748, married Lois , 

bom March 24, 1747; died Aug. 26, 1821. [Query: could it be that this 
was Lois Mansfield, and that William2 Lyon was only once married 
after all? The name of but one Lois is found in the cemetery records.] 

Children of Col. William and Lois ( ) Lyon:

married Lucy, daughter of Alexander and Sybil Booth. She died March 
1, 1813, ae. 45. In the same cemetery plot were buried the following, 
presumably children of Nathaniel: 1, Sarah; wife of Dea. Abiel Holmes 
Maltby; died Sept. 15, 1871, ae. 81; 2, Nancy; wife of John M. Garfield; 
died March 12, 1872; 3, John ("son of Nathaniel and Lucy"); died
