PREFACE 



The ginal prospectus of tlie Lyon memorial contemplated a sin- 
gle volume of possibly five hundred pages, which should include all 
easily accessible information about the several Lyon families which es- 
tablished themselves in New England prior to the year 1650. As the 
material accumulated, it became soon apparent that a single volume 
would not suffice. In fact the monograph has given place to a trilogy. 
With the present volume, the task taken in hand four years ago is 
brought to completion. It deals with the family of Thomas Lyon, 
which, although belonging in the beginning to New England, was early 
in its history transplanted into the neighboring State of New York. 

The publisher of the Lyon Memorial has been fortunate in en- 
listing for this portion of the work, the co-operation of a man whose 
acquaintance with the subject has extended over many years, and has 
been that of a professional genealogist — Mr. Robert B. Miller. It is 
only fair to Mr. Miller to say that, while he has given shape to the 
family history, furnishing the autheutic data and references to au- 
thorities that give to the narrative its high value as history, it has 
not been possible for him to edit the whole of the material that has 
been collected during the past year. For the foundation and plan of 
the work, his is the credit; if the structure seem to the critical lack- 
ing in sjrmmetry and harmony, the fault is that of those who have 
had to build independently upon that foundation, with such material 
as offered itself. Very valuable assistance has been rendered by a 
number of the descendants of Thomas Lyon. First and foremost 
among those who have interested themselves in gathering details of 
the family history must be named R. F. Skiff, of Iowa Falls, la., who 
has traced down to the present time the history of many of th« des- 
cendants of Jonathan Lyon of Bedford. It would, perhaps, be Invidious 
to select for mention individuals from the many others who have 
contributed data pertaining to their immediate relatives. Acknowl- 
edgment must, however, be made of the aid rendered by Mr. Paul P. 
Lyon of Mount Pleasant, Pa., in draughting the map of Westchester 
County — an important addition to the value of the book. 

Each volume of the Lyon Memorial is complete In Itself, although 
each contains matter that cannot fail to interest every Lyon who has 



a proper family pride. The first volume of the series treats of the 
families of William Lyon of Roxbury, Peter Lyon of Dorchester and 
George Lyon, also of Dorchester. It contains an introductory chapter 
on the English Ancestry of the American Lyon families, contributed 
by Dr. G. W. A. Lyon, who has returned to the subject, with much add- 
ed information, in the introductory chapter of the present volume. 
The second book of the series deals with two of the brothers who 
came to Fairfield, Conn., about 1648. This volume is edited by Sidney 
Elizabeth Lyon, of Jeffersonville, Ind., who accepts the family tradi- 
tion of a Scotch origin of these families. She treats in an introductory 
chapter of "Some Old World Lyons," particularly the Scotch family 
of the Earls of Strathmore. Prof. S. R. Winans, of Princeton University, 
contributes an interesting chapter on Lyons Farms, illustrated with a 
map showing the original allotments of land in the old settlement. 
Another map shows the original allotments of land to settlers in New- 
ark. 

The present volume is devoted to the single family of Thomas 
Lyon, at one time of Fairfield, and persumably a brother of Richard and 
Henry, who were also "of Fairfield." Its distinguishing feature is the 
index of places, which will be of help to any one who wishes to trace 
the ancestry of any particular Lyon. The index includes descendants 
of all the Lyon families treated in the several volumes of the Memorial. 

The task which the writer of these lines assumed four years ago 
is at last concluded. If it has been but imperfectly done, the half loaf 
is better than no bread. It will be long before the complete and 
adequate history is written. Meanwhile those who have collaborated 
in preparing the Lyon Memorial will find ample reward for their labor 
in the gratitude of their kinsmen who will owe to them some acquaint- 
ance with a family history in which they may well take pride.

THE LYONS OF ENGLAND 

FROM THE TIME OF THE CONQUEST. 

BY G. W. A. LYON, M. D. 
(Member of the Pennsylvania Historical Society.) 

"Lyons, a small district of France, to the s. e. of the district of 
Bray, and n. of Lyons la Foret, on the left bank of the Andelle; for- 
merly included within the extent of the Forest of Lyons, much more 
vast than today." [Univ. Geography — v. de St. Martin.]. 

"Lyons la Foret, a village of the department of Eure, 20 kilometers 
n. of Andelys, at the sources of the Lieure, a tributary of the Seine 
through the Andelle, in the midst of a beautiful beech forest; 75 meters 
altitude; 690 inhabitants, 1270 with the commune; sawmills and tan- 
neries; church of the 13th and 16th centuries." [Gazeteer.]. 

This district and this town are of special interest to the Lyon 
family, inasmuch as it is from them that we derive our name. The 
village has probably grown from the cottages that clustered about the 
ancient Castle of Lyons, of which the ruins may still exist. The Cas- 
tle and the forest are both plainly marked on old maps. Those who 
can not find it on their maps, can place it quite accurately by marking 
a dot a little to the south of east of Rouen, at the apex of an equi- 
lateral triangle whose base is a line drawn from Andelys to Gisors. 

The name was originally De Lyons — of the castle and forest of 
Lyons. But phonetic spelling plays havoc with names: about 1100 
variants of the name Gushing have been noted, and one name has 
four variants in a single line. Lyon is spelled with and without the 
de or the s; with y changed to i, e, oi or oy, ei or ey, or eu; the o 
becomes a, e or u; the n becomes nne. It is found as Len, Line or 
Lyne. By the monks it was sometimes written Lin, with the Latin 
ending u s, or was more frequently translated literally into Leonibus. 
Whether it Is the origin of Lynne is uncertain; while as n often as- 
sumes a d, as in Simon — Simond, it may be connected with Lynd [see 
Mass. Col. Rec, Thos Line or Ljmd of Charlestown 1637]. 

In 1066, the Lord of Lyons hearkened unto the call of Duke William, 
and for his services was awarded Corsham and Cullngton. The earlier 
generations seem to have spent most of their time abroad. When Hen. 
I. went to France to arrange the disputes arising out of the marriage 



8 THE LYONS OF ENGLAND 

of his daughter Matilda with Geoffrey of Anjou, he stayed for some 
time at the Castle of Lyons, no doubt as the guest of its Lord; and It 
was at this castle that, after a day of hunting in the forest, he par- 
took of a hearty meal of stewed eels, of which he was especially fond, 
and "died of a surfeit." 

Hugo, of the 4th generation, passed little of his time in England; 
and it was due to his friendship with Richard I. that he incurred the 
enmity of King John, whereby he was twice decilveri of his estates. 
Later the family became attached to the soil, thougi: many county 
hlstories tell how estate after estate passed from them, partly througu 
large donations to religious societies, partly through failure in the 
direct male line. 

The chief authority for the history of the English Lyons nas been 
the Rolls Office Pedigree [vol. 1.* p. 10.], printed in Welles' American 
Family Antiquity. Mr. Philippe, the compiler, had access to the En- 
glish records, and while his statements are, in the main, quite accurate, 
his conclusions therefrom are in many cases contradicted by direct 
evidence. As no records were kept until Hen. VIIL, and even these 
very incompletely, all data concerning the old families must come 
from various documents of a legal or a religious nature. In the very 
nature of the case, it is generally impossible to determine dates, and 
therefore to decide upon the precise degree of relationship between 
those who yet are unquestionably of the same household. A glance 
at the published pedigree of the Earls of Strathmore will show that 
it is impossible to prove a clear descent from the 11th century. In 
this exegesis, the compiler does not attempt to cover the whole ground, 
but confines himself to the evidence that he has personally examined. 
He passes over the history of the Scottish branch, which is treated 
fully in vol. II. of the memorial. 

It has been claimed that Godfrey de Louvain, duke of Brabant, 
was the head of the Norman family of Lyon; but this seems quite 
unlikely. First: There was no duke Godfrey till some time after the 
conquest; the dukes were the head of the family of Louvain; they did 
not bear the lesser title de Louvain, which was borne by a younger son. 
Second: Manning (Hist, of Surrey) says that Sir Nicholas Louvain 
was a descendant of the noble family of Louvain, a younger branch 
of the Hou&e of Lorraine; Godfrey de Louvain, surnamed from his 



*Vol. I., throughout this chapter, means Lyon Memorial, Massachusetts Fam- 
ilies. 



THE LYONS OF ENGLAND 9 

place of birth, had lauds in England in right of his mother, grand- 
daughter of King Stephen. Third: the name Louvain in England Is 
always Louvain, just as Lyon is always Lyon, disguised though each 
may be by the well-established phonetic changes. 

An interesting item, possibly bearing upon the relations with 
Malcolm Canmore [vol. IL pg. 12.] is noted in Kennet's Parochial 
Hist, of Oxford. "Waltheof, son of Earl Siward, for winning him over 
to the Norman interest, received from William L his niece Judith, 
dau. of Lambert de Lenes [Lyons?] by Maud, countess of Albemarle, 
dau. of Halwyn de Comitis Villa by Arlota his wife, and thereby sister 
to Duke "William by his mother." 

"The name Loions," says the Duchess of Cleveland [the Battle 
Abbey Roll], is derived from the castle and forest of Lions in Nor- 
mandy" [see also the Norman People].! "Ingelram de Lions came 
in 1066, and held Corsham and Culington from the King. He had Ran- 
ulph, whose brother, William de Lions, had a grant from Earl Wm. Gif- 
fard. and left descendants. Ranulph had Ingelram de Lions, who was 
named Parcarius, as being forester (parker) of Croxton Park, Leicester, 
by exchange with the King [Hen. II.]. Wm. Parcarius de Lions 
[his son] was a benefactor of Croxton Abbey tempo Hen. II, (1154 — 
1189), and was a brother of Hugh, who was deprived of his estates 
1203. One of this family [dropping the title, and assuming the name 
of the office] was ancestor of the family of Parker, and of the Earls 
of Macclesfield." 

"Earl Wm. Warren possessed Croxton," says Nicholls (Hist, of 
Leicester). "He died 1160. Henry II. kept it for a while, but ex- 
changed it for Corsham and Culington, of which two-thirds belonged 
to William, son of Ingelram Parcarius de Lyons, a Norman who[se 
ancestor] came with the Conqueror ["and one-third," says Lancashire 
Inquests, "to Masilia de Apyard, held by bearing the standard of 
the Parker when in service of the King"]. William was succeeded 
by his brother Hugo; but King John gave his lands to Hubert de 
Bergh, while Hugo was absent in Normandy. But he accompanying 
Richard I. back, his lands were restored, and he held them till 1203, 
when John, in retaliation for the seizure of the lands of the English 
In Normandy by Philip Augustus, seized the lands of the French in 
England, and Hugo's lands escheated to the crown, and were given 



tBurke says there was not a place in Normandy at that period which did 
not. through its Lord, give name to some English family. 



10 THE LYONS OF ENGLAND 

to Geoffrey Luttrel. William finished the abbey in 1162, and bestowed 
the property for the [spiritual] health of his mother Matilda, his 
father Ingeram, his brother Hugo, and his ancestors. The grant was 
confirmed by Hugo, and other lands were added. Maud (Matilda) de 
Perer, mother of Hugo, gave also her right in Croxton Park." This 
park still exists. 

The Monasticon Anglicanum is a compilation by Dugdale of the 
historic records of the monasteries and abbeys in England. These 
records were written by monks, and of course in Latin. Those relat- 
ing to Croxton Abbey give substantially the account quoted from Nich- 
olls above; but as a matter of interest, an excerpt from the original 
is here given. 

Ex registro de Croxton penes Comitem Rutland apud Castrum 
de Belvoir. "Habemus in Croxton de dono Willielmi Parcarii, filii In- 
gerami Parcarii de Linus, duas partes de parco de Croxton et quicquid 
in eodem sui juris fuit et libertates etc....et duas partes carnucatae 
[100 A.] terrae Rogeri Parcarii etc.... Item. Hugo Parcarius f rater 
praedicti Willielmi confirmavit nobis dictum donatium secundum ten- 
orem cartem ejusdem Willielmi. Item, habemus de dono ejusdem Hug- 
onis duas bovatas [30 A.] etc. quas Reginaldus filius Estmundi tenuit 

etc. Item, idem Hugo dedit etc sicut Ingeram pater suus sive Will- 

ielmus frater suus illud unquam liberius et plenarius possederunt 
nobis imperpetuum possidendum. . . .Item. Matilda de Perer mater 
praedicti Hugonis Parcarii dedit nobis in puram clemsinam quicquid 
juris etc." Thereafter follows what is found in Nicholl. 

From these accounts, it appears quite evident that the four first 
generations of our line were: — 

1. Ingelram de Lyons, who came with the Conqueror. 

2. Ranulph— William of Norfolk. 

3. Ingelram de Lyons, called Parcarius (the Parker), m. Matilda 
de Perer s. 

4. William— Hugo. 

Probably there were other children: note the name Roger in Mon. 
Angl. above. Ranulph, brother of Ilgeram, Ranulph, son of Ilgeram, 
and Edmund, son of Paganus, are found in Norfolk Doomsday Book. 
This last may be the Estmund referred to in the Mon. Angl. excerpt. 
It is but fair to say that there is no proof that the three last were 
surnamed Lyon. It is unfortunate that Mr. Philippe does not give his 
authorities for the descendants of Roger [vol. I., p. 11]; still the com- 



THE LYONS OF ENGLAND 11 

pletion of the Victorian series of county histories may enable the 
future historian to clear up many points that are now obscure. 

William of the second generation settled in Norfolk. It was 
probably the sons of this William who became lords of Weston. The 
records are not so full as one could wish, and it is often impossible 
to tell who's who. Blomfield (Hist, of Norfolk) gives the following 
data: — 

Ralph de Lions and William de Lions were the lords of Lyon's 
Manor, Weston, and are mentioned in a grant of Wm. Giffard, 2d. Earl 
of Buckingtiam. 

In 1187 Roger de Leonibus impleaded Ralph de Birston for two 
parts of a fee [800 A.] in Earl Warren's manor of Birston. Roger was 
son of Jeffrey, who m. Mathilda, dau. and coheir of Wm. de Lions who 
lived tempo Hen. II. (1154-1189), and left two other daus. and coheirs, 
Hawise and Beatrice, and they dying without issue, he claimed it as 
heir [through Matilda]. Wm. de Grandcourt, lord of Pulmodeston, 
proving that Jeffrey had levied a fine of the same to his ancestor Wm. 
de Grancourt, Birston held his possession, [compare vol. II., p. 11.]. 

In 1228 Walter de Grancurt purchased by fine of Jeffrey de 
Leonibus one carnucate (100 A.) of land in Clipston-Croxton. 

Wm. de Lions and his tenants tempo Hen. III. (1216-1272) held 
one-half fee (400 A.) of the Honor of Richmond In Archbridge and 
Swanington under Robt. de Furneaux. Wm. de Lions and Sibilla his 
wife held lands here and In Weston and Helmingham of the Earl of 
Clare. He granted a meadow at Brockdish Hall for the use of the 
Almoner of the Priory. 

Adam of Weston, living 1239, acknowledged to do service for one- 
half fee (400 A.) to Wm. de Englefield for his lands in Weston etc. 

Jeffrey Lyon and Thomas, son of Henry de Lions, are mentioned 
1303. 

In 1314 Hugh de Stanford settled by fine on Adam de Lyons lands 
in Weston, Helmingham and Ringland for life, with remainder to 
Ernald de Lyons his son and Alice his wife in tail. 

In 1347 Adam, son of Ernald, released to Sir Peter de Tye lands 
in Weston, — papers sealed with a lion rampant. 

In 1391 Nicholas, son of Amald of Weston, parson of Rollesby, 
reciting that whereas Wm. Lyons of Fl3rtcham had enfeoffed John 
Stanford et al. in his manor of Weston-Lyons in Weston, Helmingham 



12 THE LYONS OF ENGLAND 

and Moreton, which where [sic] the said Arnald Lyons, Nicholas re- 
leased his right in the same. 

In 1401 Walter de Middleton held the fourth part of a fee (200 A.) 
of the heirs of Arnald de Lyons, and he of the Earl of March. 

No one of our name appears in the list of Norfolk gentry in 1500. 

An incomplete pedigree would appear as follows, the dates show- 
ing when they were mentioned: — 

Ralph and William: very early. 

Matilda, Hawise and Beatrice, daughters of William; the first m. 
Jeffrey Lyon: before 1187. . 

Roger, son of Jeffrey and Matilda: 1187. 

Jeffrey de Leonibus: 1228. 

William de Lions and Sibilla, his wife: 1216-1272.— Adam: 1239. 

Jeffrey and Thomas, son of Henry de Lions: 1303 — Adam: 1314. 

Ernald, son of Adam, and Alice his wife: 1314. 

Adam, son of Ernald: 1347. 

William — Arnald, and Nicholas, his son: 1391. Arnald dead: 1401. 

The Lyon family was established in Essex early in the 13th cen- 
tury. The first known proprietor was Thomas, who may have been 
that son of Henry de Lions of the Norfolk records. The main seat 
of the early Lyons was near Saffron Walden. This Thomas m, Mar- 
garet, and their dau. m. John Wydville, a son of that Richard Wydville 
who m. Elizabeth, dau. of Sir John Lyon of Warkworth, Northampton. 
A tabular statement of these marriages will show the double strain of 
Lyon blood in the royal family of England: — 

1. Sir John de Lyons m. Alice St. Liz. 

2. Elizabeth Lyon m. Richard Wydville. Thos. Lyon m. Margaret. 

3. John Wydville m. dau. of Thos. Lyon. 

4. Thos. Wydville. 

5. Richard Wydville, Earl Rivers. 

6. Elizabeth Wydville m. 1st. Sir John Grey; m. 2d. King Edward 
IV. By this 1st. marriage, Elizabeth was the ancestress of Lady Jane 
Grey; by the 2d. marriage, she was the mother of the murdered princes 
of the tower, and of Elizabeth of York, who m. Henry VII. 

In the histories of the county by Morant, Chancellor and Wright, 
we have little more than vague references, such as "Lyons Hall, 
Chelmsford, was named from an ancient family." "In Hinchford Hun- 
dred is the capital messuage of Lyons, so called from an ancient 



THE LYONS OF ENGLAND IS 

family surnamed Lj'on which flourished in this county tempo Bdw. I. 
—Ill," (1307-1377). 

Liston Hall reverted to Richard Lyons, who was killed by Wat 
Tyler (vol. I., p. 16). Shardlowe estate also belonged to him. Richard 
was the famous vintner and lapidary. He was buried in the church 
of St. James, Garllckhythe. Stow (Survey of London, 1598) says that 
his house was next to the Hanse Merchants' Guildhall, Thames St., 
next to Cosin's Lane. He describes the "Picture on his gravestone; 
very large and fair, with hair rounded by his ears; a little beard, 
forked; a gown girt to him down to his feet, of branched damask 
wrought to the likeness of flowers; a large purse on his right side, 
hanging in a belt from the left shoulder; a plain hood about his neck, 
covering his shoulders^ and hanging back behind him." At the time 
of his death he held the Manor of Overhall in Liston of the King in 
capite, by service of making wafers on the King's coronation day, and 
serving with them the King at dinner on that day. But long before 
his decease he had enfeoffed Alice, Lady Neville, in the manors of 
Netherhall, and in lands and tenements in Liston, Borle, Foxherd and 
Penstowe. Netherhall was held of the Earl of March by the service 
of 12 s. per year, and "Weston of Thomas Monshensy for 1 lb. of pepper. 
He had also the manor of Gosfield. Upon his death, these escheated 
to the crown. He is said by some to have been Richard of Oakley, 
mentioned in the Northampton pedigree; but Bridge says that the lat- 
ter died 1361. A Richard was in Parliament tempo Richard II (1377- 
1399). 

John, the Lord Mayor, and wife Alice, were granted lands 1545 
by Hen. VIII. Elizabeth, 2d. wife of John, held lands in St. Albans 
1660 for the life of Elizabeth. She was dau. of John Lee of Stanford, 
Co., Lincoln, and widow of Alderman Hynd, a colleague of Sir John. 
His will was proved 1569. Richard, son of his bro. Henry, was hi> 
heir, and he died 1579, leaving a son and heir Henry, aged 27 years. 
The latter died seized of the estates of Buckhurst in Chigwell and Wood- 
ford in 1590 (vol. I., p. 17). 

The arms of the Essex family are first mentioned in connection 
with Thomas, 14th. century, and quite likely were assigned to him for 
some special service; they are described as arg. a chevron sable be- 
tween three lions sejant gules, and are impaled with the Wydvllle 
arms. Later the coat bears lions couchant. Those in the British 
Museum are badly drawn, and the position of the sleeping lions led to 



14 THE LYONS OF ENGLAND 

the Inference that they were rampant, in allusion to the Warkworth 
arms; and they are so drawn in vol. I., p. 20, though the proper position 
is sejant or couchant. 

The argument of heraldry indicates that the Essex family migrated 
to Hampshire and Somerset, as stated hy The Norman People. ColUn- 
son (Hist, of Somerset) says: "About the time of Edw. I., another 
family succeeded to the estate of Long Ashton of the name of Liona 
or De Lions. Of this family was Nicholas de Lions, who in 1252 held 
the office of Reeve of Bristol. His eldest son was William, who improved 
the patrimonial estate by purchase from Agnes, widow of DeAlno, 
and Wm. de Ashton. At his death 1312, he held a capital messuage, 
the same in all probability that Is still partly standing. By Maud, his 
wife, he left issue, three sons, Adam, Thomas and Edmund. Adam de 
Lions, b. 1287, lived only one year after the death of his father. 
Thomas died 1328 without issue. Edmund, b. 1303, made a grant of 
Stockeleigh to the Abbey of St. Augustine. He had lands in Kencot 
also. He died 1367, leaving two sons; William and Thomas. Wm. died 
without issue 1370. Thomas obtained a charter 1392 of free warren 
and liberty to enclose a park in Long Ashton, which from this family 
henceforth assumed the name Ashton-Lyons, and still dominates a 
tithing in this parish. His wife's name was Margaret; he left no issue. 
The church, dedicated to All Saints, was built by one of the Lyons, 
and Thomas Is buried there. The Lyon arms — those of Essex — are 
cut in stone on the west end of the tower, and blazoned on the ceiling. 

The Manor of Lyons Court at Filton still remains. It lies north- 
ward from the village of Whitchurch, and belonged to a family distinct 
from those of Ashton. As early as the 13th. century, they bore arms; 
Arg. two lions rampant respecting sable [a variant of the Warkworth 
arms]. They were retainers to the Abbots of Keynsham, from whom 
they held their territory. From David de Lyons issued David; Robert; 
Stephen; Ralph; Thomas and Roger, his brother who died without 
issue; Thomas; Thomas and Nicholas; Richard (9th generation) left 
no issue; his sister Edith m. Thomas Holbeach of Co. Lincoln. The 
hamlet of Burton and Melton was held 1396 of the King in capite by 
Thomas de Lyons. Edward was member of parliament 1336. 

From Somerset they must have crossed into Ireland. O'Hart 
claims an Irish origin for the family, deriving the name from O'LIathan, 



THE LYONS OF ENGLAND 15 

the gray-haired. But as the family arms are those of Essex and 
Somerset, and as its most distinguished representative, the late Lord 
Lyons, former British Minister at Washington, derives from Hamp- 
shire, where Wm. de Lions was a witness 13th. century, it seems quite 
certain that any descendants of the gray-haired one are not of our 
race. Some Lyons in Ireland are of the family of Strathmore, and bear 
the Strathmore arms. 

The descendants of the De Lyons of Croxton Park passed into 
Nottingham and Derby. The existing histories of these counties are 
unsatisfactory in many ways; but the Feudal History of Derby fur- 
nishes some items which are of considerable importance when taken 
in connection with the very full Northampton data. 

Nicholas de Lenne, Forester, presented on the part of Edw. I. 
(1272-1307). John Lyon was with the Derby archers in Ireland 1362. 
Alan de Leuns was sued 1270. In 1310 Letitia and Alice, daughters of 
Wm. de Leuns of Chesterfield, sell lands. Adam de Lennes was on 
the Subsidy Rolls 1327. In 1286 Philip de Lenne (also called de 
Leuns) of Chesterfield was sued; he was plaintiff 1290, Robert and 
Philip de Leune mentioned about 1318. Alan de Leune and Philip 
mentioned tempo Hen. III. (1216-1272.) Philip was a witness 1318. 
Richard and Philip mentioned tempo Edw. I. (1272-1307.) Richard de 
Lenne sells lands In Eyom 1290. Robert de Leune of Chesterfield 
mentioned in Pleas of the Forest tempo Edw. I., and Philip de Lyan in 
the Pipe Rolls (tax list) 1213. Richard de Sutton held one Knight's 
fee (600 A.) in Sutton of the Honor of Richmond [for which Peter de 
Leonibus should respond]. Note: Peter de Leonibus did not suc- 
ceed to the Honor of Richmond till 1203, but the words here placed 
in brackets, not there in the original, may have been added subse- 
quently [Testa de Nevil (Inquisition)] Roger de Linde is on the 
Pipe Rolls 1255. 

The Derby family spread into Northampton, probably through a 
marriage. The chief authority for the Northampton pedigree is the 
collection of documents preserved in the muniment room of the Chet- 
woods. who succeeded to the Warkworth estates through marriage 
with a Lyon heiress, and failure in the direct male line. An epitome 
of these documents was given in vol. 1., p. 436; but a few of them are 
copied below in the original form, the contracted forms, for the sake 
of clearnesss, being filled out in brackets, and the annexed numbers 
corresponding to the order in vol. I.

The pedigree is as follows. It is based upon the papers referred 
to, and upon the county histories of Balier and Bridge and the new 
Victorian History. Compare the names of witnesses [vol. I.] with

accounts for one fee (800 A.) in Oakley, on levying aid for Knighting 
the King's son. In 1361 Richard died; his moiety descending to 
Isabella, Cecilia and Christina, his sisters and heirs [this was probably 
Richard the son (see also the Battle Abbey)]. In 1418 Cecilia Ragonel

His monument, said to be one of the most 
beautiful in England, is in Warkworth church. 
He wears on his head a bascinet, to which is 
attached a camail of mail. Over the body is 
a cyclas laced on the right side; under this a 
haketon with sleeves, and under this a gambe- 
son. Legs and feet are in chausses of mail; 
spurs have plain wheel rowels left almost in 
block. Knees are protected by genouilleres 
decorated with ball flowers and quatrefoils: el- Monnment (reclining) of 

John Lyon.

bows by guards and lion-faced discs; hands by gauntlets of plate and 
leather, with close-fitting cuffs strapped round the wrist. The head, 
supported by angels, rests on his helm for battle and jousting, sur- 
mounted by the crest, a talbot's head issuing from a ducal coronet. 
The feet press with admirable spontaneity on a lion. The shield is 
charged with the lion rampant of De Lions. The sword is 
suspended by an elaborate baudric worn obliquely, whose ends are 
fastened in a double locket placed a few inches below the top of 
scabbard. The end of scabbard is protected by a bouterolle, and the 
pommel ornamented with a human face. An ornate misericorde is 
slung by a loop from the baudric. Every detail has received the sculp- 
tor's most careful attention. 

Two other monuments are there; said to be of Sir John and 
Margery. He is represented cross-legged, in a hauberk which covers 
his head, and extends to the wrists, leaving the hands, which are 
elevated, bare. Every trace of mail is worn away, except a small 
portion above the knee at the opening of the tunic, which falls back, 
and reaches nearly to the heels. A plain horizontal belt, and a trans- 
verse one from which depends a sword at left side; on the left side is 
a heater shield. The head, bound with a plain fillet, is supported by 
two mutilated angels, and rests on a double cushion; the feet rest on 
a lion. 

The other figure has a veil headdress confined around the head 
by a plain fillet, and falling to the shoulders. A wimple just covers 
the chin; an open mantle fastened by a cordon crossing below the 
arms, which are raised in devotion. The head rests on a cushion; on 
each side is a mutilated angel. 

The last Sir John is the one who has been mistaken for John of 
Glamis. The John de Lyons, who 1334 was summoned to attend the 
King with horses and arms at Roxburgh [Rot. Scot., I. 306], and in 
1343 had charters for lands in Perth and Aberdeen, who obtained the 
reversion of Glamis, and whose son was Grand Chamberlain of Scot- 
land, was a descendant of Richard of Northampton — King David had 
possessions there — and may have been a cousin of the last Sir John. 

Much more might be said of Northampton Lyons, but space for- 
bids. The Oxford Hist. Soc. vol. 24 gives a long account of the vari- 
ous rectors of Begbroke, of whom the first whose name is known was 
appointed by Roger de Lyons in 1231. [see also Rennet's Parochial 



20 THE LYONS OF ENGLAND 

Hist, of Oxford]. Nicholas de Lyons was Rector 1303, and many of 
his family entered the church, here and in other counties. The Lyon 
family presented to this rectory for 117 years, except 1294, when Roger 
de Lens was patron. The name is probably connected wltH that of 
Matilda de Lens, who held one knight's fee (800 A.) from Ralph de 
Saley tempo Edw. L [Lens is phonetic for Lyons, as in the Derby 
records, and there was therefore no "except.]" 

The History of Banbury quotes an odd writ of 1330. "Sir John 
de Lyons, summoned by quo warranto to show his claim of view of 
frankpledge and weyf in the manor of Warkworth, pleaded proscrip- 
tion, but acknowledged that neither he nor his ancestors had a pillory 
for offenders against the assize of bread, and that they punished 
offenders against the assize of beer by amerciament, and not by tum- 
bril, till the third offense. The view was taken into the King's hands, 
and restored again for one-half mark." 

The Derby family crossed into South Lancaster; but either as 
younger sons, or at a time when the family had descended from its 
proud estate. Many, however, were of the gentry class, and the name 
is found in the list of lesser gentry to this day. The county might be 
considered the Lyon stronghold in England, as they comprise .008 
percent of the population. The published parish registers are of great 
value, and show that the Lyons have not removed from their original 
position in the southern part. Southern York also received a few 
settlers, and these also have not wandered far afield. In Lincoln, too, 
the name appears, but they do not seem to have settled in this shire 
until the 16th. century, possibly through the exchange of lands between 
the Lord Mayor and the King. (vol. L, p. 17.). 

On account of their importance, and for the significance of the 
names, some of the Lancaster records are quoted, even though many 
dates are subsequent to the colonial migration. The dates are not 
here given in full, and names of females are for the most part omitt-

1624; Thomas of Woolfall, 1625; William of Gansworth, 1646; William 
of Woolfall, 1628. 

The Lyons of Warwick, Bucks, Berks, and other Midland counties, 
seem to be of Northampton origin. The Middlesex line is said by 
Philippe to be of Essex stock, but this has been disproved by Mr. 
Thornton in the Harrow School [vol. L, p. 12.]. Some importance 
must be attached to the fact that most of the great schools of England 
founded their seals upon the coat-of-arms of their founders, the Harrow 
arms being based upon the arms of John Lyon of Preston, or the lion 
rampant. He had lands in Hertford. 

Here and there appear early Lyon representatives in various 
counties; but these must be passed by; as also the various parish 



12 THE LYONS OF ENGLAND 

registers and other references of later years. A partial list is offered 
here for the pleasure of the curious. Lipscomb's Buckingham; Chaun- 
cey's and Clutterbuck's Hertford; Lyson's Environs of London; Famil-

Wills; Lincoln Wills and Marriages; Northampton Wills; Parish 
Registers of Leeds, York, Solihull, Warwick, Stratford-on-Avon 
Moulton, Northampton, Ipswich, Suffolk, London Parishes. 

The Lyon family lost, by gift or otherwise, their vast estates; but 
they have tenaciously clung to their distinctive names. William occurs 
as early as the second generation, and doubtless was bestowed in 
honor of the Conqueror. Henry, Richard and John appear tempo Henry 
IL and his sons, while the name Jeffrey (from Geoffrey of Normandy 
or Geoffrey or Anjou) failed to survive. These four names persist in 
every generation, and in any list far outnumber all others. The same 
may be said of Peter or Piers, but chiefly in the northern counties; the 
first mentioned being Peter de Leonibus of Derby, 12th century. 
Thomas is nearly as ancient, and quite as persistent, and these two 
quite likely owe their names to the apostles, or to intermarriage. 
Edward made its advent with Edward L; while Nicholas and Adam 
are not popular today. George naturally does not occur till late, but 
took a firm hold. 

If one were to judge from family names, any or all of the immi- 
grants might have come from any of the midland or adjacent counties 
of England. The family of William of Roxbury claim Heston, Middle- 
sex, as their home, and their claim appears good. Peter was most 
surely not immediately related to William; there is nothing to show 
that they were aware of each other's near presence. George was 
quite surely of the same family as Peter. There is reason, too, to 
believe that the first recorded George was the son of a prior immi- 
grant who probably bore the same name. 

Since the publication of vol. I., the Lancaster records have become 
accessible, and they furnish strong presumptive evidence that Peter 
and George were from that shire. Peter appeared at the time of the 
Great Lancastrian Migration, when the first settlers of Dorchester 
removed to Connecticut to make room for the flock of Richard Mather. 
This eminent divine came with his following from that part of Lancas- 
ter where the Lyon family was especially numerous, and where the 
parish registers read almost as antecedent pages of the records of the 



THE LYONS OF ENGLAND 28 

First Church of Dorchester. A comparison of these old-world lists 
with the List of Inhabitants in 1700 will show that nearly every name 
in the latter has its counterpart in the former; and this is especially 
true of those who were resident there during the middle of the 17th. 
century. The evidence for a Lancastrian origin for Dorchester men ap- 
pears very striking and almost conclusive. 

The statement that the Connecticut families are of Scotch descent 
seems to require the Scotch verdict "not proven." They are much more 
likely to have been Lancastrian. There is presumptive evidence that 
Thomas at least had some connection with the Lyons of near Boston, 
and it may have been due to such connection that Thomas of "near 
Boston," who was killed in the Turner's Falls fight, has been con- 
fused with Thomas of Fairfield; the biographer of the Thomas Lyon 
Family should have something to say on that point. It is not at all 
likely that the 17th century Lyons of the various counties of England 
had knowledge of each other; while those of Lancaster and York 
may have had a vague idea, and so have handed down the tradition, 
that they were in some way related to the only Lyon family they knew 
about — the noble family of Strathmore, which, indeed, had a common 
origin with themselves. Moreover, the tradition that three Lyon 
brothers were on guard at Whitehall, and witnessed the execution of 
Charles I. very strongly militates against their being of Scottish 
blood; for the strong feeling of suspicion and dislike which the Puritan 
felt for the Scot at this time, and which culminated shortly afterward 
at the battle of Worcester, must have caused, at such a momentous 
time, some such order as "Put none but Ironsides on guard tonight." 

Taking into consideration, then, all the data obtained at the 
present time, it is the opinion of the compiler that the special arms 
of Strathmore belong only to those descended from John of Glamis; 
that the lion sejant or couchant belongs only to a special Essex family, 
who appear also in southern England and in Ireland; that the lion 
passant belongs only to the immediate family of Sir John, the Lord 
Mayor; and that the original lion rampant, as borne in Norfolk, North- 
ampton, and by John of Preston, is the common heritage of all the 
first settlers who bore the Lyon name.

THE EARLY LYON LMMIGRANTS TO AMERICA 



For the benefit, of readers of this volume who have not the com- 
plete series of the Lyon Memorial, a brief synopsis is here given of the 
facts connected with the transplanting to the New World of oifshoots 
from the English Lyon family. 

In the list of passengers that embarked for "Barbadoes" in the 
ship "Hopewell," Capt. Babb, February 12th, 1634, we find the name of 
John Lyon, aged eighteen years. It has been suggested that this 
was John, son of William and Anne (Carter) Lyon of Heston (now 
part of London), England, but this is not probable, since that John was 
baptized June 7, 1619, and so was probably not more than fifteen 
years old at the date above mentioned, and since his father was buried 
February 18, 1634, only six days after the sailing of the Hopewell. 
The assumption had been that the lad had set out to seek his fortune 
in a new country because he was left fatherless. It is, however, more 
than possible that the John Lyon who embarked for the Barbadoes 
1634 was the same John Lyon who was taxed in Marblehead Mass. in 
1637, and who in 1638 gave his note for payment of money to George 
Ching of Salem, Mass. We read that on 3. XI. 1644 (Jan. 3, 1645) John 
Lyon, with some companions in Salem, was fined for drinking wine and 
other offences. He was one of the proprietors of Salem 1649, and there 
after disappears from history. It is not known whether he had a 
family. No descendants are known, although there was a Lyon family 
in Marblehead in after years whose origin has not been otherwise 
accounted for. John Lyon, however, sold his property in Marblehead 
in 1653 (Essex Deeds), and seems to have returned to England. See 
memorial, Massachusetts Families, page 20. 

The earliest Lyon immigrant of whom we have positive knowledge 
was William Lyon, who came to Roxbury, Mass. in 1635 on the ship 
"Hopewell," being then a lad of fourteen. He was from Heston, 
youngest son of William and Anne (Carter) Lyon. He received a 
grant of land in Roxbury in 1648 and acquired ultimately considerable 
landed property there; in 1645 became a member of the Ancient and 
Honorable Artillery Company of Roxbury; was made freeman in 
1666 and died in 1692. He had interested himself in the new colony 
at New Roxbury, now Woodstock, Conn., and that became the principal 



EARLY LYON IMMIGRANTS 26 

seat of the family in the eighteenth century, although the family was 
also represented until after the Revolutionary War in Roxbury. In 
the dispersal which followed, members of the family established them- 
selves in Colerain, Mass. (these writing the name Lyons) and in 
North Craftsbury, Vt. The family had also spread to Middleboro on 
the south and Royalston and Gageboro on the west, and from Wood- 
stock northward into other Massachusetts towns. In later years, of 
course, there has been a wide dispersal of the family. Among the 
more distinguished members of the family may be mentioned Caleb 
Lyon, first territorial Governor of Idaho, and designer of the State seal 
of California; William H. Lyon, Indian Commissioner under General 
Grant and in several subsequent administrations, a well-to-do New 
York merchant; General Nathaniel Lyon, one of the most gallant 
soldiers that fought for the Union, and (almost certainly) Mary Lyon, 
founder of Holyoke College. 

The next immigrants of the Lyon name were the two brothers 
(?) Peter and George of Dorchester, Mass. Peter Lyon is mentioned 
as a proprietor in Dorchester 1639, was freeman in 1649 and held 
public offices 1675-85. The family remained for several generations 
in the vicinity of Boston, in Milton, Stoughton, Needham. Newton, 
Taunton, etc., extending later into Vermont and Maine, and ultimately, 
like the other Lyon families, becoming widely dispersed. It furnished 
soldiers in the Colonial and Revolutionary wars. Among the distin- 
gniished names in its record perhaps the most prominent is that of 
Admiral Henry Ware Lyon, U. S. N. 

Of George Lyon not very much is known beyond the fact that he 
was selectman in Dorchester 1645-7 and perhaps in 1661 and 1672, 
his record being probably confused with that of another George who 
was probably his son. His descendants lived in Dorchester, and Mil- 
ton,, Mass., and in Woodstock, Conn., but they seem to have been 
comparatively few in number. 

In 1644 Richard Lyon was sent from England to Cambridge by 
Sir Henry Mildmay as a tutor for his son William. He, however, 
returned soon to England. 

About 1648 there appeared in Fairfield Co., Conn, almost simul- 
taneously three new immigrants bearing the name Lyon, presumably 
brothers. One of these, Thomas, was founder of the family treated of 
in the present volume, whose principal seat, in the early days, was in 
Westchester, Co.. N. Y. 



26 EARLY LYON IMMIGSAMTS 

Henry Lyon, the most enterprising and forceful of the three 
"brothers," settled first in Milford, Conn., removed later to Fairfield, 
Conn., and finally joined the colony that established in New Jersey the 
town on the Pasaic to which the name Newark was afterwards given. 
The descendants of Henry Lyon were prominent in the early history of 
New Jersey, including several oflBcers in the Revolutionary army. 
A branch of the family established itself at an early day in Rhode 
Island. Another removed to Ohio and aided in founding the city of 
Cincinnati. Still another, Rev. James Lyon, ardent patriot in the Revo- 
lution, planted the family name in Machias, Me. 

Richard Lyon settled in Fairfield, Conn., about 1648-49, was free- 
man there 1664, commissioner for Fairfield 1669 and at his death 
in 1678 left an estate valued at £632. His descendants settled in 
Fairfield, Redding and neighboring towns, extending gradually north- 
ward into Massachusetts and Vermont. In the Revolution they were 
mostly loyalists, except those who had removed to Massachusetts and 
Vermont. From Vermont some of them found their way to Michigan — 
among these Hon. Lucius Lyon who represented the new State of 
Michigan as Senator in Congress 1837-39. 

The families of Henry and Richard Lyon form the subject of the 
second volume of the Lyon memorial "Families of Connecticut and 
New Jersey." 

The first volume, "Families of Massachusetts," contained the 
family histories of William Lyon of Roxbury and Peter and Gteorge 
Lyon, of Dorchester. 

Another early Lyon immigrant, of whom perhaps too little is 
known, was Rev. John Lyon from Cork, who came to Taunton, Mass., 
in 1666. 

Mention must be made, too, of the statement of Rev. Dr. Burhams 
(Churchman's Magazine, 1832) that the Richard Lyon who was the first 
churchman in Redding, Conn, was from Ireland. There is a possi- 
bllity that the Episcopalian and loyalist Lyons of Redding and neigh- 
borhood were, after all, descendants of this Irish Richard and not of 
Richard of Fairfield. 

Among the Lyon immigrants who arrived in the eighteenth cen- 
tury, special mention should be made of Matthew Lyon, "the redem- 
tioner,'" of whom there is a sketch in the Lyon Memorial "Massachu- 
setts Families"; of a Jew Lyon family that came to New York City, 
and of John Lyon from Ireland who settled in 1763 in Mifflington, 
Pa., and was progenitor of many of the Lyons of Pennsylvania.

SYSTEM OF NUMBERING. 

Each name has a serial number, printed in full-faced type, fol- 
lowed by Roman numeral, whose significance is obvious. Preceding 
the names which head the several paragraphs there are three num- 
bers, the first the serial number of the person, the second, in Roman 
numerals, the number of tha generation, the third the serial number of 
the person's father. By aid of these numerals, it is easy to trace 
back the ancestry of any individual mentioned. 

An asterisk * preceding a serial number indicates that further 
Information is to be found in the next generation. 



THOMAS LYON OF RYE 

THOMAS LYON "of Rye" was born in England§ about 1621, and 
died at Byram Neck, Greenwicli, Fairfield Co., Conn, in 1690. He was 
buried in the old Lyon family burying ground at Byram Neck. He is 
supposed to have come first to the Massachusetts Colony, and thence 
to have gone to seek his fortune in the far west of Fairfield County, 
Conn., where at about the same time Richard and Henry Lyon, presum- 
ably his brothers or cousins, t appeared. His first wife was Martha 
Joanna Winthrop, a grand-daughter of Gov. John Winthrop, of Salem, 
Mass., and it is to Hon. Robert C. Winthrop, a lineal descendant of the 
Governor that we are indebted for nearly all the circumstantial knowl- 
edge we have of the life of Thomas Lyon. He made public in a com- 
munication to the Massachusetts Historical Society, of which he was 
for thirty years president, a number of letters found among the papers 
of Governor Winthrop, written by Thomas Lyon, his wife Martha (Win- 
throp) Lyon, and other members of the family. 

Martha's mother, Elizabeth (Fones) Winthrop remained in England 
when her husband, Henry Winthrop came to America. He was 
drowned in Salem Harbor, July 2, 1630, the day after his arrival. She, 
with her infant daughter, Martha, came to America the following year. 
She did not remain long a widow. Her second husband was Robert 
Feake (Feeke, Feke, Fekes, Feeck, the name was variously written), 
one of the earliest and largest proprietors in Watertown, which he re- 
peatedly represented in the Massachusetts General Court. After some 
years Mr. Feake removed with his family to Greenwich, Conn., where 
in 1640 he, with Capt. Daniel Patrick, purchased of the Indians a large 
tract of land. It appears that about this time he developed symptoms 



5The statement which has been often repeated that Thomas Lyon was from 
Yorkshire, England, appears to have no foundation. It was probably a nier« 
inference from the association of Thomas Lyon with John Banks, but the history 
Indicates that this association was purely accidental. Possibly of more sig-nifl- 
cance was the earlier association of Thomas Lyon with John Winthrop, who was 
from Suffolk, but this association may have begun in Watertown or Dorchester, 
Mass. 

tThomas Lyon was In Stamford as early as 1647; Henry Lyon In Mllford 
1649, Fairfield 1652. later in Newark. N. J.; Richard Lyon in Fairfield in 1649. 
That the families of Thomas and Richard were Intimately related Is shown by 
the fact that Abigail, daughter of Thomas Lyon married John Banks, Jr., while 
Elizabeth, daughter of Richard Lyon, married Benjamin a brother of John 
Banks Jr. 



THOMAS LYON OF RYE 29 

of a derangement of mind which ended in complete insanity. There 
may or may not have been estrangement between man and wife; at all 
events Mr, Feake returned to Watertown, leaving his family in charge 
of his business partner, Capt. Patrick. The gossips had it that the 
relations between Capt. Patrick and Mrs. Feake were more intimate 
than business required. However, these relations, whatever may have 
their nature, were brought to an abrupt close in 1643 by the death by 
assassination of Capt. Patrick. Mrs. Feake and her daughter con- 
tinued to live in Connecticut (in the town Stamford), her business 
affairs being intrusted now to one William Hallett. At this juncture 
Thomas Lyon comes on the stage and assays the difficult role of son- 
in-law. 

The first of the letters of Thomas Lyon made public by Mr. Win- 
throp was written at this time. It is addressed to the "Right Worship- 
full Guvernor, Mr. Winthrop, at Boston." (See facsimile reproduction.) 

Kind and Louing Granfather, my humble duty remembered unto 
you with humble and harty thanks unto you for all your kindness 
showne both to me and to my wife. I am sorrow for to heare of that 
sad newes of the loss of my granmother|:, but the Lord knoews best 
what to doe. The ocasion of my writing is seing the Lord hath 
brought me unto this condition as for to mary won of your gran- 
children, my desier is for to seeke both for her sole's good and her 
body's. Therefore seeing my time is in the Lord's hands (how soone 
I may be taken from her T know not) I would prouide as com- 
fortable as I could. For her to goe to her Mother if the Lord should 
take me Away, is not my deseir, considering her condition, for I 
have knowne enough. Therefore I hearing by som since I married 
her that there was somthing both giuen her and apoynted to be 
gluen her, caused me to write to you intreating you to send me word 
how it is. If there bee anything it is better she have her right to 
doe her good another day than those that be as strangers or have noe 
right at all and as for her Mother, I think if she cannot mary here 
(as yet she may not be suffered) she will goe som where else with 
the fellow, if he be as willing, soe that my wife has not nor is like to 
have litle or noe comfort or helpe of her mother. Soe if there bee 
anything by right for my wife I would pray you to consider of her and 
send word. I shall bee short but would pray you to speke with 
Goodman Lockwood the bearer and he can satisfie you fully how all

things is, for I tould my mind to him. Thus intreating you to let me 
heere by this bearer fully how all things is, I hast. I pray you to 
remember my duty to my father Feeke, if he be not departed for 
England, and to my kind Unkle John Winthrop and my Aunt with 
thankfullness for all their former kindnesses. I would [have] sent 
to him before now but had not an opertunyty. Likewise my love 
to all the rest of my friends in generall. 

My wife remembers her humble duty unto you and thanks you 
for your love and care toward her. Your good exhortation she hopes 
she shall not forgit, and she prays you to remember her to her loving 
and kind Unkle John and to her Aunt and to her Unkle Adam and all 
her Unkles & Aunts & friends. Likewise she would pray you to 
remember her duty to her father Feeke. Thus leaving you to the 
protection of the Allmighty, I rest 

Your dutytull and obedient grandsonn 
Thomas Lion. 
From Stamford ye 25 August, 1647. 

Endorsed, almost illegibly, "Sonne Lion, Itr. about M. J. her right, 
23 (7) 47 [Sept. 23, 1647]. 

In spite of its conventionalities of form, its crudities of expression, 
its occasional obscurities, the letter is a marvel of self-revelation. We 
have before us the New England pioneer living in an atmosphere of 
obtrusive but sincere piety, surrounded with perils of the wilderness, 
inured to hardship and toil, self-reliant, yet with an eye to the main 
chance. Commenting on this and the succeeding letters, Mr. R, C. 
Winthrop says: "As far as can be ascertained these letters constitute 
the earliest existing mention of Thomas Lyon in New England,, but they 
afford no clue as to his antecedents, except as showing by his hand 
writing, though difficult to read at the present day, that he was an 
educated man. On Aug. 25, 1647 he had not long been married, his 
means were small, he had acquaintances in Boston and was on good 
terms not only with the Winthrop family but with his wife's step- 
father Robert Feake." It may be added that they do not necessarily 
imply a previous residence in Salem or Boston, although they suggest 
the probability of this. The vagaries of spelling found in the letters 
are no indication of illiteracy since at that date the English language 
had no settled orthography. It need not surprise us at all that he 
wrote his own name sometimes "Lyon," sometimes "Lion." His con- 
temporary, William Lyon of Roxbury, took even greater liberties with 



82 THOMAS LYON OF RYE 

the name, writing his signature "Lyon," "Lion" or "Ljon," and neglect- 
ing often to capitalize the Initial L. 

The object of the first letter appears to have been to intimate that 
any bequests intended for the grand daughter should be made directly 
to her and not to her mother, for reasons easy to understand. In the 
succeeding eight months the situation went from bad to worse. Mrs. 
Lyon was in delicate health. It seems to have been intimated by 
some one that she was not cared for as tenderly as she should have 
been by her husband. Mrs. Feake, although not divorced from her 
husband, had become the wife of Mr. William Hallett, and complica- 
tions had naturally arisen with regard to the disposition of the Feake 
estate. 

Thomas Lyon to John Winthrop, Sr., 

From Stamford ye 14 April 1648. 

Loving Granfather — ^My humble duty remembered unto you. This 
is to aquaint you that I have received your kind token you sent to 
my wife as a gowne and petecote and savegards, which I humbly thank 
you for. They stand my wife in great sted. For my own part, I 
am willing to doe for my wife to the utermost of my power, but she 
being is such condition, not able to helpe her selfe, makes me doe 
and suffer that which otherwise I might not; but my trust is in the 
Lord who had apointed us to com together. He can help and re- 
leive those that wayt upon Him, as experiance shows. Although I 
am base in degree to you, and poore, yet that you should look upon me 
to helpe me the goodness of God is great. As for your good counsell, 
I humbly thanke you. The Lord inable [me] to follow it, that soe I 
might make my wife's life as comfortable as I can in her condition. 
As for my wife she is worse and worse, soe that is a great hindrance 
to me, having but little but my labour, and cannot git a helpe for her, 
they being all so scarce here. 

Concerning my wife's mother, she hath delt very harsh with me, 
witholding my right from me in severall cases. The reason as I 
conceive and noe other, I shall tell you. When I married first, I 
lived in the house with her, because, my fathert beeing destracted, I 
might bee a helpe to her. Whereupon seeing severall carages be- 
twene the felow she now hath to be for husband and that the people 
allsoe tooke notic of it (which was to her disgrace) which greved me 
verie much, — and I can say as the Lord knowes, her fall hath been the 



fReferrlngr to his wife's step-father, Mr. Feake.

THOMAS LYON OF RYE 33 

greatest greefe and trouble to me that ever com by other, — .and after 
long time heering and seeing what condition she were in I spake to 
her about it privately and after I discovered my dislike. I see her 
carage alter toward me. 

And haveing profered divers times to the utermost of my power to 
help her to take care of her estate, either in the house with her or in 
a house by her, haveing soft all menes that were lawfull, both betweene 
she and I — allsoe, when nought would prevale, before witnes — that see 
she might gaine her name, bring glory to God, and part with the felow; 
yet nothing would pervale, but the more I desired her to part with 
the felow, the more I see that she were against mee. But however I 
hope I shall have a clere consiance toward her before God that I have 
not been the cause in the leest by my neglect, but to relate were tedi- 
ous. However, I am sorow for the sad efect she hath brought upon 
her selfe in general, and now more partickquler that none of her for- 
mer freinds will scarse look upon her, which I desier the Lord would 
lay it open to her if at the last there may be hopes, and I desire my 
selfe and others may take notis of her fall that soe it may be gaine to 
others. My wife remembers her duty unto you and to all the rest of 
her freinds in generall, with thanks to you for your gifts sent to her and 
likewise to all her freinds to their kindness. I thought to have writ 

to my Uncle John Wlnthrop, but the time is [torn] 

I shall not. 

Farther concerning the condition she is in. My father Feeke 
going away sodingly, having taken no course about the children and 
estate, only deseired a friend of his, and I, in case wee see them about 
makeing away the estate and to remove, wee should stay it — allsoe 
sending a letter to same effect, from Watertown — wee sent for counsell 
what wee should do. Wee were advised to stay it according to my 
fathers order; whereupon wee sent to the Dutch Governor, and went 
allso, that the estate might be stayed according to my father's desier. 
My mother and William Hallett coming there, there were som com- 
plants made against them, their living together; whereupon the Gov. 
ordered that the estate should be preserved for the children and my 
father upon his land at Greenwidg. It were farther ordered that my 
mother should live with her children having the benyfit of comfortable 
to live on, if she continewed there. If she did not stay there, she was 
not to carie away any of the estate nor children; likewise William 
were to depart the jurisdiction. But when they were returned to 
(3) 



84 THOMAS LYON OF RYE 

Greenwidg because the fellow might not live there, my mother in law 
came hither with him, bringing away the children and estate, which 
we have seized on. AUsoe sence she came here she hath openly con- 
fessed she is married to him, is with child by him; and she hath been 
at New Haven but could have no comfort nor hopes for present to live 
in the jurisdiction, and what will become of her I know not. She is 
resolute in her course or else I think if she would leave William, she 
might stay here, and for the present they are in an unsettled condition, 
not knowing what to doe; and wee have had much trouble concerning 
the estate and yet it is not settled, for wee know not how to dispose of 
the children, for the estate is sould and wasted by their menes and 
charges comd on it, soe that it will not be soe good as my father left it 
neither will it maintayne the children except they be put forth. I 
could desier that my Uncle John would make a voyage hither and see 
if hee could settle things for the best, for the children and the estate 
spedely. The ocasion of my writing is to informe you of the truth, lest 
you might be informed otherwise. If my Uncle John Winthrop would 
com, it would be very good. I humbly intreat you to speke with him 
about it, for the children and the estate suffer. Or I would intreat 
you to send by this bearer your mind what you think will be best. 

I intreat your favour to aquaint him, how things are that I could 
desier (as the case stands) he would make a jorny hither spedely. 
Likewise let me intreat you soe much because I shall not write to him 
at this time as to tell him I would intreat him to conseder the state 
of the place here and helpe me with a couple of sithes and a sickell or 
two against harvest, for here is none to bee got, and I shall send such 
pay as the cuutry doth aford, as whete; for if I had such things it 
would help me to get much that now I cannot. Oure thoughts are for 
the present to see to the Dutch Governor if he will resine the part of 
the Estate there in our hands soe wee might have it all improved at 
Greenwidg upon the land. I intreat you would be pleased to let me 
heere from you spedely, soe in hast I rest 

Your dutyfull and obedeant grandsonn 
Thomas Lion. 

In a postscript, after giving details of the complications that had 
arisen about the disposition of the Feake estate he says: "there iB 
300 acres of land which were given to my wife by my father and Cap- 
taine Patrick. I intreat you to write to the Dutch Governor who has 
taken the land away, that soe I may not lose my right." [This may

have an important bearing on the validity of the claim put in after 
his death by his daughter, Mary Wilson]. 

Letter indorsed by Governor Wlnthrop "Sonne Lyon, 14 (2) 48" 
[April 14, 1648]. 

Incidentally we see how the conflict of authorities — those of Con- 
necticut and New Amsterdam — helped along with the Indians and the 
sanctimonious cussedness of Puritan human nature to make life inter- 
esting to the frontiersman. The letters from the invalid wife — a 
person evidently to whom the hardships of the pioneer life were a new 
and overwhelming experience — will be read in this connection with 
"pertickquler" interest. It may be noted that they were penned by 
an amanuensis. 

To John Winthrop, Jr. 

Stamford ye 23 March, 1648-9. 
Most Loving and Kind Unkell and Aunt: — My humble duty remem- 
bered unto you. I haveing an opertunyty thought good to send these 
few lines, allthough I have writ many but received none. I humbly 
thank you for your great love and care toward me in that you have 
sought to know how it is with me. Mr. Eaton being here I have sent 
by him playnly and nakedly How it is. I hope he will acquaint you. 
For my owne part, I am weaker than ever I was and not able to doe 
any thing, scarce to take my owne vitles when it is set by me. I 
likewise have a very bad stomack, but the more because of my bred- 
ing my stomack very choyse and daynty which causes me to suffer the 
more, my husband beeing not able nor at leasure to gitt mee what I 
would. Here is noe help to bee got, neither by neiborhood nor ser- 
vants, my husband beeing forst to doe all both for himselfe and mee, 
which is a great hindrance and loss. I entreat you good unkell con- 
seder my condition as it is, and help me a little with som of your cast 
off clothes, for I know not how to doe when the Lord plese to give me 
another litle one. For my husband's part he dos doe what he can for 
me and I am sorry he should suffer soe much for mee, for he drinks 
water that I might drink beer, eats Indian that I might eate whete 
and fares hard & works hard that I might not suffer; but you may 
conseder partly his condition that he cannot doe as he would. For 
my owne part I prayse God that he hath provided such a comfertable 
helpe for me that is willing to suffer soe unspekeable. I beseech the 
Lord to open your hart and the harts of all my freinds to consider 
mee which I hope he hath. I with my husband have sent a letter of 



36 THOMAS LYON OF RYE 

Atturny to my Granfather concerning my right. I beseech you heipe 
mee what you can, considering my extreme need. Remember mee 
to all my cozens. Remember my duty to my mother. I sent a letter 
to her; I hope she hath received it. My husband remembeers his 
duty to you. In haste I rest 

Your humble and dutyfull cozen, 

Martha Johana Lyon.

comfortabell deliverance of a dafter wch. is a hopeful child & is 
likely to live and my selfe is well up agayne, thanks bee given to God 
in and through Crist Jesus for it. I am forced to put it oute to 
nurse by reson of my infirmitie & because help is not to bee had, 
soe that my husband is at greate charges for the nursinge of it, yet 
for my comfort & for the good of the child my husband is willing 
to do the uttermost that hee is abell. Nowe concerninge ye linnen

need of them & was put to greate straight because I did trust to 
them and was fayne to borrow & if nowe shee could send them to 
mee shee would doe mee a grate pleasure & I should bee verie 
thankefull for them. 

Concerninge my husband's carridge to mee I have noe cause to 
complayne but rather to bless God that hath given him a hart to goe 
through soe many trubells with soe muche patience; for he is verie 
lovinge & kinde to mee & tender over mee, soe that I wante for 
nothinge that lieth in his power and soe with my humbell dutie to

Indorsed "Cosen Martha Lion before winter 1649." 
In anottier letter dated Stamford 23 (11) 1649 (Jan. 23, 1650) she 
writes of the "little daughter, now about halfe yeare old. We call 
her name Mary. She is well in health (through mercy) and a thriving 
child for one bread up without the breast, as this hath been." Her 
last letter was written the following year.

Martha Johana Lyon. 

To her loving and kinde Uncle Mr. John Winthrop liveing at 
Pequot this d. d. 

Martha Johanna Lyon died probably 1854 when Thomas re- 
moved from Stamford to Fairfield. 

A family trait which characterizes many of the descendants of 
Thomas Lyon, found expression in his adoption of the principles of 
the Society of the Friends. It called for no common courage for a 
man in those early days to avow himself a Quaker. Both in Con- 
necticut and in Ney York the authorities dealt severely with 
advocates of the new heresy. We read that in 1657 a ship arrived in 
New Amsterdam having on board several of the "accursed sect" 
called "Quakers." They had been banished from Boston and were 
on their way from Barbados to Rhode Island "where all kinds of scum 
dwell." as Dominie Magapolenses expressed it. Two women of the 



38 THOMAS LYON OF RYE 

company, who ventured to parade their seditious doctrines in New 
Amsterdam were thrust into the common prison, their hands bound 
behind them, and kept there until the ship which brought them was 
ready to sail for Rhode Island. One of their number, Robert Hodgson, 
went to Hempstead, L. I., where, it is said, there were already a few 
Quakers living. He was seized, tied to the tail of a cart and so driven 
back to the city where he was sentenced to a heavy fine and to im- 
prisonment "in a filthy jail" two years, to be chained to a wheel- 
barrow with a negro who was charged to lash him with a heavy tarred 
rope. Such inhumanities no doubt made converts of many who 
otherwise might have been indifferent to the doctrines of the new 
sect. Of such metal no doubt was the yeoman, Thomas Lyon§. When 
the inevitable persecution came, for giving adhesion to the new 
seditious doctrine, it was not he who was first to utter complaint. It 
is his wife who writes thus to Gov. John Winthrop, Jr. 

Faierfeild, Juen the 22, 1668. 
Honerd Sir: — My husband being from home, I am bould to present 
you with my present greivance. We have seven children, fouer of 
them small. Last year they took away an ox for half a year. Senc 
they fined us six pound moer, and for that have soulde the greater 
part of our home lot. Now honerd sir, I have noe man but yourselfe 
whom God hath impowrd to redres this great opreshern. My husband 
can not act aganes his conscience. They are resolved in theyer way. 
Thus hoping you will conseder my distres, I rest 

Youer pooer servant to command 

Mary Lion. 
To John Winthrop, Jr. 

Indorsed "Mary Lion Senr., reed., June 23, 1668." 

Thomas Lyon himself wrote a letter shortly afterwards "To the 
worshipfull Mr. John Winthrop, Governor of Connecticut Colony," in 
which he says: "You know my condition, which God of his grace 
has cald mee to, blessed be His name, and how I am delt with for It. 

God in his time, tho man be silant, will find a way to deliver, My 

goods is taken, my land divided, yett the Lord is my portion for ever, 
blessed be His name!" Signed "Your kinsman, Thomas Lyon." 



5In this connection we must not forget that William Hallett. who had re- 
moved with his wife, the former Mrs. Feake to Hempstead, L.. I., became promi- 
nent in the Society of the Friends. One of his daughters was an exhorter, and 
among: the foremost leaders in the Society. 



THOMAS LYON OF RYE 39 

Indorsed "Tho. Lion, rec. June 23, 1668." The seal of this letter has 
the initials T. L. in a monogram, a fact that it is worth while to put 
on record here. 

The signature, with date, of the last letter in this series is here 
given for comparison with that of the first letter, in which the name 
is spelled Lion, and with that of the will of Thomas Lyon. See 
fac-simile reproductions. 

Confirmation of the statements made in the letters is found in a 
communication addressed to Grovernor Winthrop June 29, 1672, by 
the venerable William Coddington, who writes: 

Road Island, 29d. 4 mo., 1672. 

***Now I shall in trew loue to thee relaite what is corned to me 
(I bellue thou was absent), & it was in thy Jurisdiction, & came to me in 
writing, viz: that some of our friends abute Rye or Greenage have had 
some of their good taken away because they could not goe to heare 
those teache which they knew was not sent of God, nore' called by 
Christ Jesus vnto that worke which they pretend too, as theyer 
fruites doe manefest or other causes, which to them is matter of 
conscience, Thomas Lyon being one with some others. I desire thee 
to inform me of the trewth hereof. Those, for whatever I could 
lame, or heare, have lived vnspotted in that kind.** 

We find nowhere any evidence that Thomas Lyon identified him- 
self permanently with the Quakers, or at any time adopted their pecu- 
liarities of speech and dress. 

Of his personality little is known. He is described as a man of 
exceptionally fine physical development, being known in the neighbor- 
hood where he lived as "Thomas Lyon, the strong." 



40 THOMAS LYON OF RYE 

His first wife, as has already been noted, was Martha Johanna 
Winthrop (See appendix, note 1), daughter of Henry and Elizabeth 
(Fones) Winthrop, and grand daughter of Hon. John Winthrop, 
Governor of the Colony of Massachusetts in 1629. 1630, 1637, 1642 and 
1646. She was born in Groton Manor, England, May 9, 1630, and 
died in Stamford, Conn., probably about 1653. In 1652 Thomas Lyon 
bought a house and lot in Stamford of William Potter (See appendix, 
note 2). It is probable that his wife, Martha, was still living at that 
time. May 11, 1654, he purchased of Thomas Shervington a house 
and lot at Fairfield, and this fixes approximately the date of his second 
marriage§. This house he sold Nov. 1, 1675 to Daniel Frost, and on 
Feb. 13, 1676, he, with John Banks, Sr., of "Fayrefleld" acquired title 
to a "sartaine parsell of land in Greenwich, lying by Byram River and 
by estimation three score ackers." It is recorded that previous to 
this "the towne had granted unto Mr. John Banks, senior, of Fayre- 
fleld, as Thomas Lyon's attorney, a sartaine parcell of land lying in 
Greenwich on the lower end of Byram neck, by estimation three hun- 
dred ackers." It was this land, "Elizabeth Neck," that was later 
claimed by the daughter of Martha (Winthrop) Lyon, Mrs. Mary 
(Lyon) Willson, as rightfully her inheritance. Into the merits of 
that controversy it is not necessary to enter, but it is interesting to 
note that in the original deed "by Amogerone Sachem of Asamuck and 
Rammatthone [and] Nawhorone, sachems of Patomuck, to Robert 
Feaks and Daniell Patricks" of Greenwich lands, Elizabeth Neck "by 
ye Indians called Mona Kewego" is expressly excepted "which neck is 
ye perticular perchace of Elizabeth Feaks, ye sd Robert Feaks his 
wife, to be hers and her heaires or assigns forever." See appendix, 
note 3. 

This item is from the Town Record of Rye, under date March 5, 
1676: "The Towne of Rye adopted the following. Thomas T^yon and 
Thomas Brown are appointed to choose a house or place to be for- 
tified for safety of the towne." See appendix, note 4. Mr. Win- 
throp says that it is believed that it was this Thomas Lyon who served 
as a colonial soldier from Connecticut and remarks that his expres- 
sions in the letter of Aug. 25, 1647 in relation to his possible death 
would tend to confirm that theory. In Schenk's History of Fairfield 



SThere l8 record also under date Jan. 12, 1658, of the purchase by Thomas 
Lyon of two lots of land In "ye Newfleld" from Andrew Ward, and of a lot, also 

In "ye Newfleld," from Symon Hoyt of Stamford, the total amount of these 
purchases about 14 (?) acres. (Fairfield Land Records, Lib. A., p. 92).

42 THOMAS LYON OF SYS 

we find the following statement: The soldiers engaged in the Pequot 
war of 1637-8, who afterwards settled at Fairfield were: 

Roger Ludlow Thomas Lyon 

Dr. Thomas Pell of Saybrook John Wood 

James Eggleston Thomas Basset 

Nehemiah Olmstead Samuel Gregory 

William Hayden Richard Osborne. 

No authority for the statement is quoted. If the record is 
authentic we must conclude either that Thomas was a mere boy 
when he joined the force sent to chastise the Pequots, or that he was 
of unusually mature age when he married Martha Johanna Winthrop — 
or else that there were two Thomases. The last alternative is worthy 
of consideration, although there is nothing in the Winthrop corres- 
ponaence to bear out such a hypothesis. We know that there was 
a Thomas Lyon who was killed in the battle at Turners Falls, 1667. 
Savage supposed that it was Thomas of Fairfield and Rye. It is pos- 
sible that it was the Thomas of the Pequot war, if there were any such 
Thomas. 

The early settlers of Stamford came from Watertown, Dorchester, 
and other places near Boston, at first by way of Wethersfield. Is it 
not more than possible that the Thomas Lyon who in 1647 is of 
Stamford, with acquaintances in the vicinity of Boston, was related 
to Peter and George Lyon of Dorchester — possibly a brother? The 
question is merely suggested. It may be possible some day to an- 
swer it authoritatively in the affinative or negative. 

Thomas Lyon married for his second wife, about 1654, Mary Hoyt, 
daughter of Simon Hoyt, of Stamford, Conn., by whom he had four 
sons and four daughters. See appendix, note 5. 

During the latter years of his life Thomas Lyon, although living 
probably in Greenwich at Byram Neck, is spoken of as "of Rye," this 
place being just the other side of Byram river in New York — the place 
now being called Port Chester. In a list of the inhabitants of Rye 
in 1683, the name Thomas Lyon appears twice repeated — father and 
son no doubt. The name Lyons Point, written also Lions Point, 
applied to the point at the mouth of Byram River, was in common use 
as early as 1683. 

The will of Thomas Lyon was dated Dec. 6, 1689, and probated 
at Fairfield with inventory of estate, September 7, 1690. See facsimile 
reproduction.

3. IL 1. MARY' LYON (STEDWELL) (WILSON) [Thomas'] 
was born in Stamford, Conn, in Aug. 1649 (her mother, Martha J. 
(Winthrop) Lyon writes Sept. 2, 1649, of her "late comfortabell deliver- 
ance of a dafter, which is a hopeful child") ; the date and place of her 
death have not been ascertained. She inherited from her mother a 
delicate constitution, and because of her "sad condition" of health, she 
was sent in 1668 to visit her uncle, Governor John Winthrop, Jr., who 
was living at that time in Hartford. This event no doubt had much 
to do with shaping her subsequent life. Little, however, is known 
of the details of that life. She is said to have married first Joseph 
Stedwell of Rye and second, before Nov. 1691, John Willson of Bedford, 
afterwards of Rye. 



46 THOMAS LYON OF RYE 

She received by her father's will only an equal share with her 
sisters in the movable property. She believed that since a portion 
of the land her father had owned came to him through his marriage 
with Martha Winthrop, she was entitled to more than that§, and she 
pushed her claims in the courts, appealing at last to the General 
Assembly of Connecticut. The petition was for a restitution of three 
hundred acres of land claimed to have been originally the property 
of Mrs. Feake, Martha Winthrop's mother. The record reads: 
"This Court having heard and considered said petition doe order that 
the sons of said Lyon, viz: Samuel and Joseph Lyon doe pay the sume 
of fiftie pounds in currant money of this Colony, to be paid within the 
space of one year unto said John and Marie Willson, the said John and 
Marie Willson giving them quitt claim to land aforesaid, and in 
failure thereof said John and Marie Willson may take out an execution 
against so much of the land aforesaid as may satisfie the said sume." 
(Colonial Rec. Conn. IV. p. 424; date May 13, 1703). Oct. 11, 1705, 
there is record of the issuing of such execution (Col. Rec. Conn. IV. 
p. 531). See appendix, note 6. 

A more amicable transaction is recorded June 24, 1737, when 
certain lands at Horseneck were transferred by Thomas Lyon, John 
Willson, Jonathan Lyon, David Lyon and John Lyon, all of Greenwich, 
to Thomas Close (Greenwich T. R. V. p. 1?>.).

JThis seems to have been an after thought, for on Nov. 4, 1691, John Willson 
and Mary Willson gave quit claim to the executors and administrators of th« 
estate of Thomas Lyon for any demands by reason of any legacy due by th* 
will of the deceased, or any other demand which is or may be [made] by us 
on said estate. Greenwich Town Records, p. 78.

5. II. 1. JOHN- LYON [Thomas'], born, probably at Fairfield. 
Conn., about 1655, and died in Greenwich in 1736. He lived with his 
brother Samuel on the undivided estate left by their father, Thomas 
Lyon. The name of his wife has not been ascertained. John Lyon was 
deputy to the General Court of Connecticut from Fairfield, Conn., 1725- 
1730. Feb. 27, 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 Stockham) 
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 
between the cartway down into the Neck and the mill creek bounded 
up the said creek by John Holt's meddow and to run down to the said 
Creek till it comes to John Boyd's meddow, provided the said John 
Lyon doe not praidice the carte way into the neck, nor the way to the 
mill, neither shall bee hinder any person from settin up thare field 
fence if they have occasion." At a town meeting held Sept. 20, 1697, 
Capt Theall, John Horton, Joseph Purdy, Hecaliah Brown, John Lyon, 
Thomas Merritt and Isaac Denman were chosen a committee "for the 
management and carrying on of the worke of building a meeting house 
for the towne 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. 

In April 1699, John Lyon and Isaac Denman were chosen to lay out 
a road to White Plains, "beginning at the head of Capt. Theall's land 
and so to run to the caseaway (causeway) brook," said road to be three 
rods in breadth. July 14, 1710, John Lyon signed a quit claim^ for

all obligations due him from his brother Joseph; witnesses Richard 
Ogden and John Stockham. Peb. 1714 ("one thousand seven hundred 
and thirteen fourteen") John Lyon, Sr., living at Byram in the Town 
of Greenwich, deeded to his son Daniel Lyon of the same place his 
dwelling house and home lot. with all his lands and meadows on 
"Byrum Neck" not already disposed of to his son John Lyon, Jr.; 
John Corbit witness. His will (Stamford Probate Rec. Lib. I. p. 
115) was dated Jan. 24, 1736; executors John Merritt and Samuel 
Brown; witnesses Johannes Dow, David Lyon, George Gorham. He 
bequeathed to Caleb Lyon, son of his son Thomas, deceased, one half 
the mill in Greenwich, with one half the lands pertaining to it, he to 
pay to his sister, when he should come of age, £30 current money; 
Thomas, brother of Caleb to have the other half of the mill property; 
to his son John the western and to his son Daniel the eastern half 
of the land at Byram Neck already deeded to them, Daniel to have 
also the lands on "Mary's Hill." (In case Daniel died leaving no 
male heir the lands bequeathed to him were to go to James Lyon, son 
of John, Jr.) The moveable estate to be divided equally between 
"my four daughters, Ruth, Mary, Hannah and Jude." For full text 
of the will see appendix, note 8.

Conn., date not ascertained, and died at Rye, N. Y. in 1713. He was 
unmarried and died intestate. Fairfield Probate Records (Lib. 
1702-50, p. 268) contained the following memorandum: "Thomas Lyon 
who was appointed administrator on the estate of Samuel Lyon late of 
Greenwich, according to a former Order of Court, have rendered an 
aocompt of his administration to the Court of Probate held in Fair- 
field Dec. 1713, which accompt the Court have compared with the In-

the Court do therefore order that said estate shall be divided as foi- 
loweth: To Thomas Lyon above named £67. 16s. 9d.; to John Lyon. 
Joseph Lyon, Sarah Merritt and Deborah Cove [or Cone] each £22. 
12s. 3d., and to the children of Elizabeth, one of the sisters of the 
deceased Samuel Lyon, £22. 12s. 3d. It is to be understood that 
Thomas above sd hath bought two sheirs of sisters Abigail and Mary 
which is the reason of his exceeding a single portion. And the Court 
do desire and appoint Mr. Elisha Holly and Mr. John Holly Cooper to

6. II. 1. THOMAS' LYON [Thomas'] was born at Greenwich, 
Conn., in 1673, and died April or May 1739. He built the house near /^^ 
Byram Bridge, which is still standing, having been occupied continu/^ 
ously until the present time by his descendants. Among the Land A 
Records we find "Land laid out on ye west side of Byram River, known 
as Cook's Purchase, to Thomas Lyon, Joseph Lyon, Samuel Lyon, 
Abigail Banks and Thomas BuUis" (Fairfield Deeds II, p. 43, date 1701). 
John Lyon, Thomas Lyon and Samuel Lyon of Rye and Byram, sell 
property at Fairfield that was their father Thomas Lyon's (ibid III. 
p. 73; date 1707). Thomas Lyon married Abigail, daughter of John 
Ogdent, of Stamford, Conn.; she was living at distribution of estate of 
Thomas Lyon, Sept. 1752; d. before Nov. 26, 1760. 

Thomas Lyon was a member of Colonel Robert Hunter's Com- 
pany of Fuliseers, mustered in New York and Westchester counties 
on February 24, 1711 for 61 days' service on the Canadian frontier 
(Booth's Hist. New York City) .

tJohn Ogden came to Stamford from Long Island In 1641 and received 
Dec. 7 a house and lot of ten acres. In 1G42 he aprreed with Governor Kieft 
to build a stone Church for 2500 guilders. He returned to Hempstead In 1644, 
and was one of the patentees of the town. He removed In 1651 to Southampton, 
L. I., where he was chosen Assistant, and named In the Royal Charter. He 
went to New Jersey with Governor Carteret, and was representative from EJUza- 
bethtown in the First General Assembly, 1668. He married Jane, daughter of 
Robert Bond of Southampton, and his daughter Abigail became the wife of

8. II. 1. JOSEPH= LYON [Thomas'] was born in Greenwich, 
Conn., about 1677 and died in Rye, N., Y., Feb, 21, 1761, in his 84th 
year. 

His wife's name was Sarah, parentage not ascertained. He 
owned and operated a grist millf on Blind Brook, and purchased from 
the original proprietors of Rye Neck, Joseph Budd, John Hought 
(Hoyt) and Daniel Purdy, a lot of thirty acres in addition to the estate 
inherited from his father. In 1711 he was one of the vestrymen 
elected by the parish of Rye (established 1695). § In 1729 his name 
appears with that of his brother John among the signatures to a grant 
of land to the Presbyterian Society as a site for a church building. In 



tRye from early times rejoiced in a considerable number of mills for which 
the numerous streams afforded excellent facilities. Of these we find fifteen or 
twenty in operation before the Revolution. The first established were grist 

mills. John Budd's, afterwards known as L.von's Mill, on Blind Brook Creek. jf( 
was built sometime before the year 1669. Not long after the Mill on th« 
opposite side of Rye Neck was built by the same proprietor on Mamaroneck 
River. In 1696 Samuel Lane and Joseph Lyon received permission to build

lAbraham Lyon was skeptical as to the fact that the earth was round and 
that it revolved every twenty-four hours. One night he put the matter to the 
test. He set a pail of water on the gate post at the entrance of the old home- 
stead. In the morning he found the pail full as he had left it — convincing proof, 
to his mind, that the astronomers were all wrong. 

t Simeon Mills, born in England, married Mary Buell, Feb. 23, 1649, and 
settled in Windsor, Conn. Removed afterwards to Simsbury, and thence to 
Greenwich, Conn., and had eleven children.

1783/Cornelius Jacobs, born North Castle, May 19, 1754; died Dur- 
ham, Green Co., N. Y., April 18, 1811; son of Cornelius Jacobs. 
Cornelius Jacobs, Jr. enlisted at the begining of the Revolutionary 
war and served until its close. He was one of General Washington's 
body guard, and, being a light man and a bold rider, was much 
employed in carrying despatches. At the close of the war he was 
paid off in worthless Continental money. In April 1811 he left 
Dutchess County, where he had been residing, to join his brother in 
law, David Lyon, in Oxford. The journey on horseback over the newly 
opened Catskill Turnpike consumed four days. He found a place for 
his family in a log cabin near South Oxford, but on his way back was 
taken sick at Durham, Green Co., and died there before his wife could 
reach him. She was thus left a widow with a large family to begin 
pioneer life in the wilderness. She however heroically carried out to 
a successful issue the difficult task of rearing and providing for her 
numerous offspring, presumably with the aid of the three older boys.

in Union Cemetery, Rye. Adm. of estate June 30, 1846 to widow, De- 
borah Lyon. He was Captain in succession of the market sloops 
"Caroline," "Jackson" and "New York," plying between Port Chester 
and New York City. He married March 26, 1814 Deborah (No. 352) 
daughter of Abraham and Hannah (Mills) Lyon. She was born in 
Rye, Nov. 5, 1795; buried in Union Cemetery, Rye. Captain "Gillie" 
about 1817 bought the home lot on "Lyons Point" where he lived and

the lower Dock [now Ryan's] property, where he had a vinegar house 
and lime kiln. The business was continued after his death by his sons. 

Gilbert Lyon was Grand Master of the local Free Mason's Lodge. 
He fiercely opposed the change of the name Saw Pits to Port Chester. 
During his absence he was falsely represented at Albany as in favor 
of the change, and for this reason refused to acknowledge the name 
Port Chester, refusing even to carry freight billed to Port Chester in- 
stead of Saw Pits.

Thomas', Thomas^] of Greenwich, Conn., was born Aug. 17, 1774, pro- 
bably at Bedford, Westchester Co., N. Y. Married Sarah Woolsey 
about 1796. He and three brothers, Charles, Daniel and Samuel 
and sister Clara Lyon (Seeley) moved to Bainbridge, Chenango 
Co., N. Y. about 1803. The four brothers settled on farms adjoining 
each other that included a half section, about 320 acres, purchased by 



16S THOMAS LYON OF SYE 

their father for them. The father continued to hold the title in his 
own name to insure against the sons divesting themselves of the land. 
The sister Clara, who married Harry Seeley, had her home three to 
four miles distant, on the Susquehanna River, about one mile above 
Bainbridge village. The four brothers lived all their long lives upon the 
farms where they first settled and all reared large families: William 
12, Charles 12, Daniel 5, Samuel 13. The sister, Clara Seeley, con- 
tinued in her home and reared 7 children. The four homes now in 
1906, more than one hundred years after their settlement, are owned 
by descendants, and all but the Daniel Lyon place still of the Lyon 
name. 

William married Sarah Woolsey about 1796. He was a Whig in 
politics; both were Methodists. Three children were born to them at 
Bedford and nine at Bainbridge. Eleven grew to adult years. Nine 
married and had homes near them, and children were born to eight 
of them while the grandparents lived. Sally, the youngest, married 
and Hannah, unmarried, continued at the homestead as long as father 
or mother lived. He died Sept. 2, 1844, she Oct. 20, 1849 aged 73 
years. Both were buried in the homestead burial plot. This plot in- 
cludes graves of children and grandchildren. It is enclosed by stone 
wall and is well cared for by Horace Lyon and his son, Hudson Horace, 
and their families, who now have this homestead. 

Horace, son of Charles, and Deborah Lyon Doolittle, daughter of 
Samuel, are all that, of their generation, in 1907, survive of the forty- 
two children of the four brothers who came to Bainbridge a century 
and four years before. There were fifty-four grandchildren. Ten of 
them served in the Union army in the Civil war.

1313. VII. 677. WILLIAM' LYON [William', IsraeP, Israel*, 
Jonathan*, Tllomas^ Thomas'], was born at Bainbridge N. Y.. Oct. 
8, 1817.' Little Bill was the name that distinguished him from his 
father. This implies that William Sr. was a large man. William Jr. 
was average size. He was quick in movement and alert in business and 
acquaintance with men. Aug. 8, 1840 he married Julia JEIendrlck, 
daughter of Leontes Hendrick of Coventry, N. Y. Both he and she had 
been teachers of the public school near his home. Deborah Lyon 
Doolittle, in 1906 one of the only two survivors of the 42 born to the 
four Lyon brothers first at Bainbridge, tells now that she attended 
school to both of them. They lived at Masonville, and at Bainbridge 
on the Davis farm. In 1850, soon after the death of his mother, he 
bought the Wm. Lyon homestead. He quickly appropriated for it the 
best methods and appliances for farming. In 1854 he sold the farm to 
his cousin Horace Lyon (No. 1343). Horace is the other one of the 
two survivors of the forty-two. He has for more than fifty years main- 
tained the place in high culture. His son, Horace Hudson Lyon^ is 
with him, and is a frequent writer for agricultural papers^ about the 
practical work done there. The good wife of H. H., Mrs. Jeannette 
Gladstone Lyon, a relative of Wm. H. Gladstone, and a sister Miss 
Mary E. Lyon, help to make the home and to augment the pleasure 
and interest in the ancestral place. 

William, in 1851, purchased 300 acres in the woois of Sweden, Pa. 
In March 1852, two years preceding his sale of the homestead, he moved 
to the new place. Three men, one of them a nephew, Richard Bush, 
went along to help a year on the work. Randolph Burdick, husband 
of his sister Sarah, went later the same year to build their barn. 
Thus is evinced the interest of William to draw his friends near to 
him. He was always a total abstinent of tobacco and intoxicating 
liquors. The building of that barn gave occasion to show his mettle 
and resourcefulness. The neighbors informed him that the barn could 
not be raised without whiskey. Their view was a widely prevalent 
one. They came from four miles to the raising. Some of them brought 
a supply of whiskey for him to accept if he would. Otherwise their 



U It i- 



212 THOMAS LYON OF RYE 

help would be withheld. The work went on with a small force that 
raised the first bent to position of hardest lift, where, for a long time 
it halted, while the others looked on at their efforts. William said 
he would send as far as New York state, if need be, to hire men, but 
there would be no whiskey. About the middle of the afternoon a four 
horse team with help from Coudersport, eight miles distant, came to 
the rescue, and everybody joined in raising that barn. This was more 
than fifty years ahead of equal courage in general to exclude the liquors 
from banquets at the White House. 

He bought horses in Ohio and brought by wagon road to the mar- 
ket east. He handled sheep and other stock. With his busy life he 
found time and place to be a Christian. When Sunday came his 
driving, different from the prevailing custom, was always suspended. 
He would be at the school house meetings, two miles distant, or drive 
the eight miles to church at Coudersport. He was a Methodist. Mrs. 
Lyon was Baptist. They had in the home an altar of prayer, and in 
which the farm help shared. Both were good readers of the Bible. 
Both made occasions to open up this book to their boys; and so well 
did they do it that they were often importuned to read more. 

William Lyon was quick to be in touch with men throughout the 
county who were interested in the antislavery issue, and in cnurch 
and educational work. Ministers, editors, teachers and any who loved 
these things, were frequent visitors to their home in the woods. 

From the midst ot vigorous and busy life he was suddely stricken. 
His death, which occurred^ug. 18, 1856, was due to exceedingly ex- 
hausting effort to reach and\ attend his brother Caleb, who died a few 
days before. Mrs. Lyon died Feb. 22, 1876. ... nj.

of Chatham, N. Y.; married Nov. 18, 1847, Adelia Caroline Duncombe, 
who was born July 13, 1826 at St. Thomas, Ontario. She was daughter 
of Dr. Elijah Ely Duncombef (b. March 15, 1795 in Delaware Co., N. 
Y., moved to St. Thomas, Ontario about 1824; died there in 1870), and 
Katharine Bonck (born Feb. 6, 1802; died 1860). They reside (1906) 
at Edenvale, Calif, near their children, Mrs. Clara Hayes and William 
Penn Lyon Jr. 

It can well be said of William Penn Lyon that he began at the 
lowest rung of the ladder and by his own efforts attained a prominent 
position in life. At eleven years of age he left the district school to 
work in his father's store near the little village of Rayville, N. Y., 
subsequently attending "select school" about one year, but the world 
was a school for him and every good book a teacher. At fifteen he 
was teaching a district school and later he was a clerk in a grocery 
store in the city of Albany, N. Y. Here outside of business hours 
he spent much of his time in attending the courts and sessions of the 
Legislature and in his mind now grew a desire that served as an in-

centive throughout his public career. In 1841 he moved with his father 
to Walworth Co., Wis. and lived there on a new farm. If in this wild 
country he forgot his ambition, it was of short duration, for one morn- 
ing in early winter he set out to walk to Elkhorn, the County seat of 
Walworth Co., to borrow a law book that some one had promised to 
loan him. On his return home, stiff and sore from walking through the 
deep snow, he lay on his back with the book open, and now began the 
education In law of one who in after years lectured before the classes 
of the law department of the State University of Wisconsin, and whose 
published opinions as one of the associate justices of the Supreme Court 
of Wisconsin have become a part of the law of the land. He afterward 
studied law In the office of Judge George Gale of Elkhorn, Wis.; in the 
fall of 1845 he entered the office of Judge Charles M. Baker of Geneva, 
Wis., and In the Spring of 1846 he was admitted to the bar. Having 
been chosen one of the justices of the peace of the town of Lyons, he 
opened an office for the practice of his profession and the first twelve 
months brought him the munificent income of sixty dollars. From 1850 
to 1855 he practiced in Burlington, Wis., when he was elected district 
attorney of Racine, Wis., and moved to Racine, Wis. He served two 
terms in the Assembly and was each time made speaker. 

At the beginning of the rebellion he was commissioned captain of 
Co. K of the Eighth Wis. Infantry to rank from Aug. 1861. On Aug. 
5, 1862, while in the hospital at Inka, Miss., he was promoted to the 
rank of Colonel of the Thirteenth Wis. A brief history of the part 
taken by his Company and regiment may be found in the Magazine of 
Western History, April 1887. On the eleventh of Sept. 1865, Col. Lyon 
was mustered out of service and was subsequently brevetted a brigader 
general to date from Oct. 26, 1865. While at the front, Col. Lyon was 
chosen judge of the first judicial circuit of Wisconsin, entering upon 
his duties Dec. 1, 1865, and serving five years, when upon the death 
of Associate Justice Byron Paine he was appointed by Gov. Fairchild 
to fill the vacancy. In the following April he was elected by the peo- 
ple for the unexpired term. After serving two terms following two 
years as ex-officio Chief Justice, on Jan. 1, 1894, he retired from the 
Supreme Court. During these twenty-three years was performed his 
life work, and he feels a just satisfaction in his participation in pre- 
paring material for sixty volumes of the Wisconsin reports. The next 
two years were spent in California. In 1896, finding he was not ready 
to retire from the active duties of life, he accepted a position as mem-

ber on the Wisconsin State Board of Control, of which he became 
President and remained such until he resigned in July 1903. Here in 
brief are the chief features of the career of a grand and noble man. 
A fuller account would tell in detail of his struggle to gain an education 
and the many events of his life as he made his way from one position 
of usefulness and honor to another, would tell of his disappointments 
and many successes, of his joys and sorrows, of the hazardous and 
thrilling events of the four years in the army and the work of his 
mature years and would tell of the peculiar qualifications that enabled 
him to fill with honor every position to which he was called.

after two years and he lives (1907) with his sister Rozilla Lyon Corn- 
well, in Hartford. Conn. 

2046. VIII. 1313. GEORGE HENDRICK' LYON [William', Wil- 
liam", Israel", Israel*, Jonathan', Thomas% Thomas^], was born at Bain- 
bridge, N. Y., Oct. 27, 1844. At 7 years he and his two brothers, 
Farnham and Edward, came with their parents to Sweden, Pa., where 
a new home in the woods was made. Four and a half years later their 
father died, leaving six children, George, in his twelfth year, being the 
oldest. The large enterprises of their father could not be continued 
as he would have done, and the financial crisis which came on im- 
mediately after made a hard path for the mother and family to keep 
and make their home. The two boys, twelve and ten years old, the 
next spring in their sugar bush accomplished the work of making two 
hundred pounds of maple sugar. A neighbor learning about it cheered 
and said that was the biggest thing he ever knew for boys of their 
ages. At thirteen George became a member of the Baptist Church. 
His great grandmother Hendrick, who was spending a year at their 
home, grandfather Hendrick, and mother, with him, made four genera- 
tions together holding the faith. Four winters at Coudersport, he at- 
tended the academy schools and paid board and tuition by doing chores, 
and caring for school rooms. 

He served in Company K. 37th Pa. Militia at time Lee and his army 
invaded the state. Later he enlisted, a private in Co. F. Sllth Regt. 
Pa. Vol., and served nine months till close of the war. This included 
two engagements, charging upon strong fortifications. One was the 
re-capture of Fort Steadman, and the other, April 2, in front of Peters- 
burg, charging and taking the Confederate Fort, Mahone. He says: 
"After storming Fort Mahone we rallied in two charges further to 
adjacent works. I was four hours in the fight where, at from 200 feet 
apart to some of the time not more than twelve feet apart at opposite 
sides of partition walls, each side was trying to make the other keep 
guns and heads low. My blouse was ragged with bullet holes. I, my- 
self, took five men prisoners, and later was made prisoner in turn. 
That proved to be an opportunity under escort, to see the Confederate 
retreat from Petersburg to Appomattox, and the surrender." 

Seven years after the war was devoted at schools, interspersed 
with work at farming, teaching and surveying. He was graduated C. E. 
from Union College Schenectady, N. Y., with class of 1872. 

Feb. 28, 1873, at North East, Pa., he married Sarah Paden, 



260 THOMAS LYON OF RYE 

daughter of Hugh and Sarah (Dunn) Paden. One son, Paul Paden Lyon 
was born at North East April 18, 1874. Mrs. Lyon died at Bradford, Pa., 
Dec. 4, 1877. She was a woman of excelling worth and traits. Paul, 
emulating them, and growing up the chum of his father, has gained 
a large esteem widespread. G. H. Lyon has adhered closely to the work 
of civil engineer. Thirty years it has been in the Pennsylvania oil 
field except from 1893 to 1897 in West Virgiana, He was twice elected 
city engineer of Bradford, Pa. He was eleven years county surveyor, 
has been chief engineer of numerous railroads in and near the oil fields. 
Until 1882 he was Republican, since that a Prohibitionist. 

In 1882 he changed from observance of Sunday, the first day, to the 
Seventh Day and in the Spring of 1883 he became a member of the 
Baptist Church, non resident, at Alfred, N. Y. In November following, 
Paul, his son, nine years old, was baptized, uniting with the same 
church. They have co-operated all the years since, in the church, 
politically, and now as civil engineers. Their engineering parties 
have always halted from their work on Seventh Day Sabbath. Both 
were delegates from Pennsylvania to the Prohibition National Con- 
vention in 1900 in Chicago. He says of their work, "Both have been 
in some measure successful in persuading leaders in the Prohibi- 
tion Party to desist from proclivity to infringe religious liberty by 
Sunday laws; and to discern that a civil sabbath does not promote a 
hallowed Sabbath, and is not helpful to the church. To discern that a 
civil sabbath begets a holiday instead of a holy day. That making 
a compulsory idle day, by control that has not and cannot have super- 
vision to make it a hallowed day, does make an idle day; and this 
idle day, this civil sabbath, more than has been suspected, fosters the 
liquor traffic." 

G. H. Lyon till 1907 did not marry again. Announcement is now 
made of engagement to marry April 17, 1907, Miss Celina Bliss, daughter 
of John and Harriet (Spencer) Bliss. They were school friends at Bel- 
fast N. Y., 40 years ago. His home is at Mt. Jewett, Pa. 

Son of George H. and Sarah (Paden) Lyon:

Regt. Pa. Vol., and served a year and a half to the end of the war. 



EIGHTH GENERATION 261 

It included a heavy picket service, many months near Petersburg, and 
the encounters in close pursuit of Lee all the way to Appomattox. 
He was at Appomattox at the surrender. July 4, 1877, he married Mary 
Kelly, daughter of Andrew and Lucinda (Lyman) Kelly. Their home 
has been principally on the William Lyon homestead at Sweden, Pa. 
They have named it "The Maples." With its maple groves and fine 
rows of large maples, and commodious, well built house it is as pretty

272 THOMAS LYON OF RYE 

2558. IX. 2046. PAUL PADEN" LYON [George H.«, William*, 
William", Israel", Israel*, Jonathan', Thomas^ Thomas^], was born at 
North East, Pa., April 18, 1874. His mother died at Bedford, Pa., when 
he was 3^ years old. He had a home with his grandmother the great- 
er part of each year, but with his father each winter till nine years old. 
After that all the time except in school was with his father. On his 
16th birthday he was presented with a new surveyors' compass. He 
proceeded at once to good use of it, and was credited with being the 
youngest surveyor in the state. At eighteen he was given charge of 
one of three corps of men malting survey for a pipe line from Brad- 
ford Pa. eastward to near the seaboard. This was wholly outside of 
his father's supervision. His work was so expeditious and satisfactory 
that he was retained in service several months at the best wages after 
the several parties were dismissed. In 1898 and '99 he spent one year 
prospecting in the Klondike gold field. Thousands were waiting in 
May below the Chilcoot Pass in the rush to be in the lead to go down 
the lakes and rivers by boats when the ice should break. Friends 
wanted to join with him, but decided they could not because of his 
decision not to run Sabbaths (Saturday). The exigency, they thought, 
required then to run every day. He made his trip single handed. He 
tied up every Saturday. His expertness at boating and use of charts 
brought him in two days ahead of his friends who would not wait for 
him. His prospecting was not remunerative except in knowledge 
gained of the country and of mining and methods. He returned the 
following spring. 

Aug. 26, 1902, he married Adaline Bonham, daughter of Winfield 
Scott and Eva (Saunders) Bonham, at Shiloh, N. J. 

He and his father co-operate, working together or separately, as 
engagements favor, at civil engineering. He is chief engineer for 
Timberlake Gold Mining Co., of Routt Co., Colorado, devoting part of 
his time to that work. 

The Prohibitionists have twice made him their candidate for the 
legislature. He has served them since as secretary and later as chair- 
man of the county committee. He is a good writer, speaker, and organi- 
zer, and everywhere gains friends. His home is Bradford, Pa.

families of Suffolk). John* Winthrop was bom at Groton Manor, 
Eng., Jan. 12, 1587, and died at Boston, Mass., March 26, 1649. He 
was a lawyer and County magistrate who became a great Puritan 
leader and emigrated to New England, coming to Salem in the ship 
Arabella in 1630. He was elected on the passage Governor of the 
Massachusetts Bay Colony, and held that position of honor almost 
continuously until 1646. His first wife (married March 16, 1605) was

son, Edmund, became Admiral Lyons, R. N., raised to the peerage as 
Baron Lyons in 1856, the father of Lord Lyons, British Rxinister in 
Washington 1858). 

Henrys Winthrop was baptized at Groton Manor, Jan. 20, 1607. 
At the age of twenty he went to the Barbadoes, but did not remain 
there very long. April 25, 1629, he married, in London, his cousin 
Elizabeth Fones, daughter of Thomas and Anne (Winthrop) Fones.f 
When Henry Winthrop, following his father, sailed from England in 
the month of April, 1630, he left his wife at Groton to come over sub- 
sequently with his mother, both being on the verge of maternity. 
Henry arrived on the ship Talbot in the harbor of Salem on July 1, 
1630, and, as the ancient family records state the circumstances, on the 
following day he went on shore with the principal officers of the ship, 
and walking out to a place, now called by the Salemites Northfield, to 
view the Indian wigwans, they saw on the other side of the river a 
small canoe. He would have one of the company swim over and fetch 
it rather than walk several miles on foot, it being very hot weather, 
but none of the party could swim but himself and so he plunged in and 
as he was swimming over was taken with the cramp a few rods from 
the shore and drowned. His wife, with her infant daughter, came over 
on the ship Lyon which arrived Nov. 2, 1631, also bringing Governor 
John Winthrop's wife and others of the family. She afterwards became 
the wife of Captain Robert Feake of Watertown, who removed a few 
years later to Stamford, Conn, where he, with Capt. Daniel Patrick, 
had purchased land. Her daughter, Martha Johanna Winthrop, there 
married Thomas Lyon, and the young couple for a time lived with 
Mrs. Feake, whose husband had returned to Watertown. Captain 
Feake became insane and his wife, who seems to have had no strong 
affection for him, found a new "affinity" in the person of William 
Hallet who ultimately married her while Captain Feake was still living- 
Mr. Hallet settled afterwards at Hallets' Cove, L. I., joining the Society 
of the Friends. Greenwich Town Records have the following item 
(Lib. I. p. 168): Nov. 25, 1650 William Hallet of Greenwich in New 
Netherlands for 3 score and 10 pounds sells to Jeffere Ferris as his own 
and wife's right also ye lands purchased by Daniel Patrick and Robert 
Feke in New Netherlands. Signed, William Hallet; Elizabeth Hallet. 



tThomas Fones of London, an apothecary, married, Feb. 25. 1604. Anne 
Winthrop, born Jan. 16. 1585, died May 16, 1819; daughter of Adam and Anne 
(Browne) Winthrop of Grot,on and sister of Governor Jolm Winthrop of Mass- 
achusetts. Thomas Fones died April 15. 1S29.

Honnered Sir 

I have made bould to let you understand how I have been wronged. 
Sir, be plesed to know that the Indians about the year 1640, gave a 
parsal of land to my grandmother Mrs. Elizabeth Feke as by Gren- 
which record may appear. My grandmother gave it to my mother 
Martha Johana Winthop, to her and the heirs of her body, but my 
father haveing got the writing in his hand, and my mother was dead, 
my father haveing many children by a second wife and some persons 
in Grenwhich had the land which was my mothers is posesion, my 
father tooke thre hundred acres of land in another plase and it was 
recorded to him free and not on account of exchange, and my father 
haveing reseved such a heavy bribe, always kept the deed of gift from 
me and I cannot lern that it hath been recorded in any publick Record, 
and the deed is now in the hand of such as I think I can prove have 
declared they had it in ther posesion very lately. I am sory that I have 
ocation to reflect on the person from whome I had my being, but the 
truth could not be declared without it, and I would intreat your 
asistans by your counsell or ani other lawfull way wherby I may if it 
be posible recover my right. I rest 

Your Kinswoman

Byram, December 21, 1701. 

Generall Winthrop and Honrd Governr. I have presumed to 
trouble yu with the perusall of these few lines in respect of the 
trouble yo"" Kinswoman puts me and my children to, as also hearing 
that by her means you have receeved false reports; as if I hadd not 
performed the duty of a mother to her and that my children hadd not 
acted as if she were a sister to them; But I doe asure y^ Honr that I 
have done for her as for any of my own daughters, And concerning my 
children showing respect to her, my eldest sonn gave her a good cow 
since her father's decease and the rest of my sonns hath done more for 
her than for any other of their sisters. I shall forbeare to write every

spread here by her means amongst the neighbourhood against her 
father whom on duty she ought to have honoured if she hadd ex- 
pected the blessing of God to have prospered her designes the which 
she is now carrying on in a very unjust manner; and I doe hope yi' 
Honr will not contenance any such unjust actions. I would desire 
earnestly that y^ Honr would be pleased to send me word what re- 
ports itt is that you have heard concerning this matter, that thereby 
I might cleare my name among my neighbors, not else from.

Letter of Theophilus Eaton to John Winthrop, Jr. See p. 36. 

Sir: yours of Deer 8th I received this last night concerning her 
that was Mr. Feakes his wife and that part of the Estate at Stam- 
ford. I know not well how to add to what I formerly wrote. By order 
of a Court of Magistrates William Hallet was to prove what part of 
the Estate belonged to him, and then to receive it without further 
question. Mr. Feakes his Estate and children were to be divided and 
half to be delivered to her if she settled within any of the 4 Colonyes, 
where the Government would have an Eie to the children and that 
part of the Estate with a due respect to Mr. Feakes and the other 
half to be kept at Stamford with like respect to Mr. Feakes and the 
children. 

I shall pass by her injurious writing to myself desring God may 
give her true repentance for greater miscarriages, but her departure 
from Stamford with the children (as I am informed) was altogether 
without allowance, and in the language which comes from thence, she 
stole away. It is true by order before the Court of Magistrates sate — 
she was to have 2 cowes delivered and some provisions but had no 



284 THOMAS LYON OF RYE 

liberty to take away the children. I pitty her and the children and 
upon any reasonable security at Boston or Hartford that the Estate 
shall be preserved for use of Mr. Feakes herself and his children, this 
jurisdiction being discharged I shall move the Court of Magistrates 
that the Estate may be wholly delivered from Stamford to such as 
may be orderly appointed to receive it, but no part of it is at 
New Haven. 

I am altogether a stranger to Thomas Lyon and his wife; till now 
I hare not heard the least intimation of her weakness or his neglect. 
Prom your information I shall now enquire and consider what the 
case may require. With my best respects I rest

Dated April 2, 1739 and Probated at Stamford, Conn.,

In ye name of God Amen. I Thomas Lyon of ye Towne of Green-

tOur ancient inhabitants were wont to call themselves for the most part by 
the humble but honest name of "yeoman." They were farmers living frugally 
upon the produce of the soil. Most of their wants were supplied by domestic 
industry, and what they purchased was commonly procured in the way of barter. 
They trafficked chiefly, we are told, in wood and cattle. By the middle of the 
eighteenth century, however, we find quite a variety of trades carried on in 
Rye, such as those of wheelwright, cordwainer. carpenter, saddler, tailor, hatter, 
weaver, and the like. We are not to suppose that the persons so designated 
were employed exclusively in these several occupations. They were generally 
farmers who joined some kind of handicraft to their ordinary business, partic- 
ularly in winter. The weavers' or wheelwrights' shops were no unusual ap- 
pendage to a farm house a century or more ago.

ABSTRACT FROM WILL OF JOSEPH LYON (NO. 35). 

Feb. 17, 1758, Joseph Lyon of the White Plain, yeoman, then in 
good health and sound memory but calling to mind the uncertainty of 
this mortal life, etc., do make this my last will and testament. Men- 
tions wife Mary, brother-in-law Charles Theall, six sons, Joseph, Dan- 
iel, James, Reuben, Jeremiah and Thomas (Joseph, the eldest son). 
Mentions "my three youngest daughters, Hannah, Susannah and 
Anne", then mentions "my four daughters", Mary, the wife of El- 
nathan Haight, Hannah, Susannah and Anne (some of these sons and 
daughters being then minors). Makes wife Mary executrix, and in 
case of her death or marrying again his brother in law Charles 
Theall and son Daniel Lyon, "in whose care and fidelity I very much 
confide and depend upon" to be the executor of his will. "It is my 
will that whereas my said wife Mary at the Ensealing hereof is Great 
with Child, that when the child she now goes with shall be born, if 
it proves a son," etc. 

August 30, 1786 Elisha Horton of Harrison's purchase (who with 
John and Jane Carhart, was a witness to Joseph Lyon's will) appeai'ed 
before Richard Hatfield, Esq., Surrogate of Westchester County, with 
Joseph Lyon's will, from which the signature and witness names had 
been torn, and swore that he witnessed the will and that it was 
Joseph Lyon's last will and testament. November 24, 1798, Daniel 
Goldsmith, Quaker, of Consackie, Albany County, appeared before 
Peter Ogilvie, Judge of the court of Probates of the State of New York, 
and swore that the instrument attached was Joseph Lyon's will — that 
he came in possession of it in 1783 and that two years afterwards, 
Daniel Lyon the executor therein named being in Nova Scotia, the 
name and seal of said testator and the names of the witnesses were 
cut off to the knowledge of this Deponent in order that the letters of 
administration upon the estate might not be grantel to some other 
person. He swore that Joseph Lyon died in the fall of 1776.

NOTE 16— LETTER OF SAMUEL LYON (NO. 78) 
To Governor George Clinton. 

Horse Neck Dec'br 19th 1778. 
Sir, I beg leave to acquaint your Exel'cy that the situation of af- 
fairs, are such in the County of Westchester, for the want of Guards, 
that I am reduced to the necessity of quitting my house, and puting 
myself under the protection of the Guards in this place. This is like- 



APPENDIX 307 

wise the fate of every honest friend to his Country in Rye. The con- 
siquence is, that, a nomber of designing persons under the influence 
of avaritious & Inimical principles, malte a practice, of secretly pur- 
chasing fat Catle, and in the night thro woods and bye Places, pass 
the Guards, here, and keep them secreeted untill a convenient opev- 
tunity presents, to send them to the Enemy. In this way I am cred- 
ibly Informed, eight fat oxen and four Cows have lately been sent 
from the neighbourhood where I should live and a considerable nom- 
ber of fat hoggs. There is no doubt this is the case quite across to the 
North River. In this way the Enemy have a large and ever plenti- 
ful! supply in New York market. I am confirmed in this by the re- 
port of Capt. Olmstead of Col. Enos Regt., on Guard here; who has 
this week return'd from Valentine's near Fort Independence, where 
he had been sent a flag and detained some days, who says he heard 
and saw while there, two hundred head of Cattle, and a great nomber 
of Sheep and hoggs pass by there towards New York. This is a 
harvest for those Infamous Villains, the Cow Thieves, &c., and brings 
great distress on many of the good Citizens in this quarter of the 
Country, I would beg leave to hint to your Exelency. that should a 
party of men, as a patrole under the Command of an active honest 
man be Employed, I conceive would be of great Importance, and the 
most likely method to detect the Theives, I am told Mr. .John Haynes 
proposes to offer himself for that purpose. Whether this, or such 
other method as your Exelency in your great wisdom shall judge best, 
I doubt not will soon be adopted. I am, with Great Respect and 
Esteem, your Exelen'ys most obed't Humble Ser't 

Samuel Lyon. 
His Exe'lcy Gov'r Clinton.

NOTE 25.— MAJOR THOMAS LYON OF LYON BROOK, N. Y. 

In the Lyon Memorial, Connecticut and New Jersey Families, p. 
249 it is stated that three brothers, Samuel, Alexander and "Major" 
Lyon, "from Connecticut or Rhode Island" settled in 1791 at Lyon 
Brook, Chenango Co., N. Y. The information came from a descendant 
of this Samuel Lyon and should be authentic. Reasons are given 
(loc. cit.) for the belief that these three brothers were from Rhode 
Island, and that they were descendants of Henry Lyon of Newark. 
The account stated that of the three brothers, two, Samuel and Alex- 
ander, had served in the Revolutionary war "in a Connecticut regi- 
ment." The name Alexander Lyon, however, does not occur in any list 
of Revolutionary soldiers from Connecticut, and the vague family tra- 
dition cannot be given much weight. The definite statement, however, 
that the third brother, "Major" Lyon, was killed at Little York in a 
fight with the British in 1812, is confirmed by the following passage 
found in the Annals of Oxford. Thomas Lyon, one of three brothers 
who came to Oxford, N. Y., from Dutchess County in 1792, "became 
a major and led a regiment of State Troops from the County of Chen- 
ango in the War of 1812. Towards the close of 1813 General Dearborn, 
under whom Major Lyon served, crossed Lake Erie with seventeen 
hundred men, with the intention of attacking York, now Toronto, and 
then the chief depot of the British Posts in the West. A landing was 
made before York on the 27th of the month [April] under hot fire, but 
the Americans pushed on and the enemy were driven from the works. 
The Americans were still pressing toward the main works when a 
magazine exploded, a plot of the British. Two hundred Americans 
were killed and wounded, among the mortally wounded being Majop 
Lyon, who was carried on board the Commodore's vessel and there died, 
the death of a hero." In fact the troops who were engaged in the at- 
tack upon York were under the command of Gen. Zebulon M. Pike, 
and that oflicer with two of his aides, one of them very possibly Major ^^ 






APPENDIX 321 

Thomas Lyon, were mortally injured in the explosion. General Pike 
lingered long enough to receive the British ensign torn down from the 
captured fort. 

It is clear that Major Thomas Lyon was not Thomas'* No. 288 
[David', Jonathan", Thomas-, Thomas'], whose history is given else- 
where in this volume in detail. The conjecture that the three brothers 
were sons of Thomas Lyon of Cranston, R. L, whose brother John re- 
moved from Rhode Island about 1794 (?) to Sherburne, Chenango Co., 
N. Y., is a very plausible one. If one further assumes that John Lyon 
born at Lyons Farms about 1698 accompanied or followed his brother, 
Lieutenant James, to Rhode Island, we have this possible lineage: 
Major Thomas^ Thomas*, John', Samuel-, Henry^ of Newark. 

Returning to the Annals of Oxford, we find the statement that 
Thomas, David and Samuel Lyon, brothers, went from Dutchess Coun- 
ty, N. Y.,t to Oxford, N. Y.. in 1792. "They went up the river in a 
canoe from Great Bend, Pa., and settled at what is now known as 
Lyons Brook, then called Can-na-wa-go. They purchased seven square 
miles of land for one shilling per acre. After meeting with many 
vicissitudes they finally cleared the land and developed several fine 
farn-'S and erected grist mills and saw mills." Evidently this is another 
version of the story of the brothers, Alexander, Samuel and "Major", 
who "came to Lyon Brook in 1791, bought land of Benjamin Hovey, 
Gov. Clinton's land agent for one shilling an acre, and built a grist 
mill, a lumber mill and a woolen mill." The brothers could not have 
been Thomas, David and Samuel, Nos. 288, 292 and 294, but there is 
reason to believe that David No. 292 did go to Chenango county to 
live, for it is stated that in 1811 his sister Elizabeth Jacobs, No. 287 
went to join him there. A daughter of David, Susanne or Susan, mar- 
ried a son of Samuel Lyon of Lyons Brook, and it is stated by their 
grand daughter. Miss Anna Holcomb, that these Lyons were not re- 
lated ["were of entirely different dens"]. Miss Holcomb gives the 
following record.

tCircumstantial as this account is, it may be after all that the three brothers 
did not come from Dutchess County. It would be natural to assume that they 
came from there, because other Lyons in Chenango County were from that 
locality.

LYON FAMILIES OF PENNSYLVANIA. 

About 1750-1763 there came from Enniskillen, co. Ulster, Ireland, 
to Pennsylvania a Lyon family whose descendants are now widely 
spread and number some of the most prominent representatives of the 
Lyon family in America. The ancestry of the Irish family has not 
been traced, but there is every reason to believe that it sprang from 
the same stock as the English families. It is observable that in Ireland 
as in England the name appears both with and without the final "s." 
The immigrants were John Lyon with his family, and three sons of 
his younger brother, James. 

3000. I. . JOHN^ LYON, of Enniskillen, Ireland, was 

born early in the eighteenth century. He married in Ireland Margaret 
Armstrong whose brother Col. John Armstrong, was also an immigrant 
to America, and played a prominent part in Colonial and Revolutionary 
days in Pennsylvania history. John died in 1780, will dated Dec. 13, 
1779; his widow died about 1793; both were buried in Tuscarora. They 
settled 1763 on a farm two miles west of Mifflintown, Pa.

Col. John Armstrong. He married second Ann Fleming. He was a 
lieutenant 1757 in the Colonial army, and in the following year was in 
the Du Quesne expedition. He was a member of the Committee of 
Safety in 1776 and held various court offices.

John Lyon or Lyons who, in 1782, was engaged to be married to Mrs. 
Sarah Port. There was also in Marblehead a Lynes family repre- 
sented by a Samuel Lynes who married, Sept. 24, 1741, Elizabeth 
Commins, and in the next generation (presumably) by a Samuel who 
married March 1, 1778, Deborah Marston. 



MISCELLANEOUS LYON ITEMS. 

The following additional notes on some of the Old World Lyons 
were communicated by Dr. G. W. A. Lyon, as supplemental to the 
Chapter on the Lyons of England, pp. 7 et. seq. 

In the archives of Calvados, Normandy, are preserved papers re- 
lating to the Abbey of Villers-Canivet. No. 12 is a deed wherein Raoul 
Buffart gives certain rights, etc., to the abbey on the occasion of his 
daughter's entering the community as religieuse. Pierre [Peter] de 
Lions is mentioned as witness to this deed. The document is with- 
out date; but the abbey has existed since 1127; chart No. 69 bears 
date 1150; chart No. 71, 1154; chart No. 72, 1186 etc. The abbey was 
near Falaise, and not far from the castle of Lions. It is quite possible, 
therefore, that Pierre was the father of Ingelram, the first of the name 
in England. Peter, then, has persisted as a family name for 700 years. 

No. 84 in the papers of the Abbey of St. Jean of Falaise — in the 
same diocese as the above — founded by consent of Henry I. of England, 
is a gift to the abbey by Geoffrey Louon of the lands which Richard, 
a priest, son of Hugh de Muires, held of him and Asceline his wife. 
The date is 1224, but the seal is broken. This Geoffrey may have been 
Geoffrey of Norfolk. 

In the archives of the Abbey of Fontaine-Guerard is a long and 
circumstantial account of the murder by William de Lion, Lord of 
Haqueville of hs wife, Marie de Ferrieres. The murder was an 
atrocious one, and William, to escape the royal justice, surrendered 
himself at the prison at Rouen, alleging that the crime, having been 
committed in a convent, belonged to ecclesiastic jurisdiction. But on 
complaint of the family of Ferrieres, the King ordered the prisoner 
sent to the castle of Guerard. He was forced to found a daily mass 
forever in the church of Fontaine-Guerard for the repose of the soul 
of his victim; to give a certain amount of land to the four sons which 
he had by his marriage; to remain two years outside the realm, and 
to make several pilgrimages. Dated June 1, 1401. He was killed 1415 
at Agincourt. The sepulchral statue of Marie de Ferrieres, removed 
from the church to the Tower of King John of England, was subse- 
quently restored to the church, and is still existent. 

In the choir of this abbey was interred Herve de Lion, who had 
become Lord of Radepont by his marriage with Matilde de Poissy 
about 1280. Nearby is interred Herv6 de Lion, their son. Lord of 



MISSCELLANEOUS LYON ITEMS 335 

Noyon on the Andelle, of Radepont and of Pont St. Pierre, husband of 
Jeanne de Montmorenci. 

In the matter of the Lyon estate at Eccleston, Lancaster, Henry 
and Ellen, his wife, had a messuage and lands there in the early part 
of the 15th century; this descended through Robert, George, Henry, to 
William, claimant in 1570. George had it in 1609. 



The "Lyon dollar" was a Dutch (Brabant) coin, so called because 
it bore the figure of a lion (formerly often written lyon). In 
Feb., 1705, the merchants of New York complained that that city 
was drained of "heavy" money "so that we can expect nothing to 
tarry with us but the Lyon dollar, whereof none here can judge of 
their value." The coin was said to have been then commonly in 
circulation in New York, Pennsylvania and even in the Carolinas. 
Its value, the merchants at that time believed should be fixed at 
5s. 6d. In 1720 an Act was passed to raise the value of the Lyon 
dollar. In 1768 they were mentioned as "rarely now seen." 

In a letter from Edward Howes to John Winthrop Jr., dated Feb. 
25, 1629, occurs the following: "The Arabian Philos. I writt to you of 
he was styled among vs Dr Lyon, the best of all the Rosicrucians that 
ever I mett with all, farre beyond Dr Ever." 

An old indenture dated May 26, 1705, is recorded in New York 
city of Phillip Lyon, orphan ae. about fourteen as servant and appren- 
tice to Hendrick von Bael of the city of New York. Another early 
Lyon name in New York is that of Thomas Lyon, barber, May 27, 
1702. Half a century later we find an Abraham Lyon, Jew, baker, in 
New York mentioned in will of Mordicai Gomez dated May 3, 1750. 

Rye was originally Poningoe. named from Ponus, one of the rul- 
ing sagamores of Rippowams (Stamford) 1640. The Byram river was 
called Armonck; Blind Brook was Mockquams; Stony Brook was 
Pockeotessen. 

In 1729 the proprietors of undivided lands in Rye granted to the 
Presbyterian Society half an acre of land on the plains for a building 
site, signed among others by John Lyon, Jr. (No. 24) and Joseph 
Lyon (No. 8). 

In the will of John Allison of Haverstraw, Jan. 6, 1751, mention 
is made of land of Banks and Lyon lying in Kakiat (Lib. xix, p. 141). 

The will of Elisha Budd of White Plains (see No. 42), dated Sept. 
11, 1765, speaks of father in law Joseph Lyon and makes bequests to 



336 MISSCELLANEOUS LYON ITEMS 

four daughters, Miriam Maynard, Sarah Purdy, Ann Brown and Phebe 
Theal, also son Jonathan and son in law Isaiah Maynard (executor) 
Lib. XXV. p. 8. The record of No. 156 on page 63 should therefore 
read: m. before 1765 Isaiah [not Jonah] Maynard; also to the record 
of No. 159 should be added: m. before 1765 Theall. 

In "Westchester Wills" it is stated that Coles Golding of Bedford, 
in will dated Jan. 6, 1760, makes bequest to Israel Lyons (No. 275), 
son of Israel, and appoints as executors wife Phebe and friends Jon- 
athan Lyons Sr. and Israel Lyons. , The statement differs in several 
particulars from that found on page 75. Reference is to Lib. XXII, 
p. 11. 

The will of Thomas Marsh (Lib. XXVII, p. 351) of Harrison's 
Purchase was dated April 14, 1770, probated Oct. 3, 1770. 

As stated on footnote on page 69, Thomas Marsh of Harrison's 
Purchase bequeathed land to his daughter Anne, wife of Thomas 
Lyon (No. 72), to go to her son Samuel Lyon at her death. He made 
bequests also to his grand-daughters Sarah Lyon (land) and Phebe 
Lyon (£100). The record on page 69 gives the birth of Sarah 
daughter of Thomas Lyon as July 15, 1771, whereas the will of Thomas 
Marsh was dated April 14, 1770. The inference is that Thomas Lyon 
had a daughter Sarah who may or may not have been older than 
Phebe. but who died after April 14, 1770 and before July 15, 1771. 

The will of Susannah Bishop of Phillips Manor (or Phillipsburgh) 
dated June 12, 1763 (Lib. XXIV, p. 190) makes bequests to daughter 
Sarah Lyons and granddaughter Jemima Lyons, also to sons John 
and Thomas and to daughters Rebecca Drake, Susannah Ryder, Je- 
mima Styvers and Ann Wildby. [In these old wills the name Lyon 
is not unfrequently written Lyons, if the printed copies are to be 
trusted.] 

An unidentified Samuel Lyon lived in New York City in the mid- 
dle of the eighteenth century. He was probably not of the family of 
Thomas Lyon of Rye. His will indicates the nature of his business, 
and seems to show that he had no immediate relatives or else that 
he was disowned by his family The will is as follows (Lib xxii p. 
328, Surrogate's office. New York City) : In the name of God Amen. 
I Samuel Lyon of the City of New York, Marriner, being of Sound mind 
and memory and considering the uncertainty of this Frail and Transi- 
tory Life, do therefore make and ordain this my last Will and Testa- 
ment; that is to say, First, after all my just debts be paid and dis-

and Mary his wife, of the said City of New York, Tavern Keepers, 
all my real and Personal Estate, and more particularly all my share 
or shares of Prize Money due or coming to me from all prizes taken 
by the Privateer, Sloop Goldfinch, Capt. Dobbs Commander, during 
her last Cruize, and likewise all share or shares of Prize Money that 
shall be or may become due to me from The Privateer, Brigg George, 
Peter Healy Commander, now bound on a Cruize against his Majesty's 
enemies. Likewise I make and ordain the said Alexander Wylly and 
Mary his wife to be Executors of this my last Will and Testament, 
hereby utterly disallowing any former wills by me made. In witness 
whereof, I have hereunto set my hand and Seal the thirtyyeth day of 
July, in the year of our Lord one thousand seven hundred and fifty 
eight, and in the thirty second year of his Majesty's reign. Witness- 
es: George Campbell, Stephen Fitz Patrick, Moses Cherry. 

MERRILL PALMER LYON was a descendant of some Canterbury 
Lyon. Note that Harriet^ Lyon [Chester^ Ephraim=, Ebenezer'] of 
Canterbury married Henry P. Palmer, as a suggestion for the origin 
of the given name Palmer. The family has a tradition of some re- 
mote connection with Gen. Nathaniel Lyon. Merrill Palmer Lyon 
married Mary Antress Lewis. They had a son Joseph Palmer Lyon, 
born at Hanover, Conn., Nov. 29, 1869; whether or not there were other 
children has not been ascertained. Joseph Palmer Lyon is a civil 
engineer, grad. Mass. Institute of Technology, where he was after- 
wards Instructor and Assistant Professor. Specialty, bridge construc- 
tion. Has been Bridge Inspector for New York Central R. R., and 
Estimator for American Car and Foundry Co., Passaic, N. J. Has 
resided in Rochester, N. Y., New York City, Detroit, Mich., at last ac- 
count (1905) in Hanover, Conn. He married in Hyde Park, Mass. 
Oct. 31, 1896 Frances Clara La Rhetta, born 1873, daughter of Samuel 
(dec. July 15, 1898) and Clara Ann (Lovell) La Rhetta. 

Daughter of Joseph P. and Frances C. (La Rhetta) Lyon: 
I. Louise Frances; b. Rochester, N. Y., July 2, 1899. 

MRS. TRUMAN HAW LEY LYON of Grand Rapids, Mich, (see 
Lyon Pioneers of Michigan, in Vol. II. of the Memorial) died sud- 
denly Dec. 23, 1907. The fatal attack of heart disease came just as 
her son-in-law. Prof. Greacon of the High School in Grand Rapids

was reading aloud a letter telling of the birth in Cleveland (to Mrs. 
Carl Adams) of her first great-grandchild. Mrs. Lyon was one of the 
oldest residents of the city and prominent in club and society circles. 

ERNEST NEAL LYON (see Vol. II. p. 379), widely known as a 
contributor of verse to various magazines, died at Pasadena, Cal., 
Nov. 26, 1907. An obituary notice appeared in the Newark Evening 
News of Nov. 30, giving a sketch of his life and commenting favorably 
on his literary achievements. Especial mention is made of his 
lines on President McKinley's last words and those on Roosevelt's 
Charge at San Juan. He is survived by his wife, Amelia Stanner 
Lyon.

1. FAMILY OF WILLIAM LYON OF ROXBURY. 

No. 35, p. 32. — Probably died intestate about 1718. Jan. 30, 1720-1 
"Elizabeth Lyon, daughter of Edward Airs of Portsmouth, widow of 
Henry Lyon, who died two or three years ago," petitions for a settle- 
ment of the estate. There seems to be no other Henry Lyon to whom 
this could refer. 

No. 6, p. 33. — Joseph may have had a daughter Abigail, born about 
1699. No other explanation suggests itself for the record: "Abigail 
Lyon of Woodstock married, July 18, 1718, William Chapman of Mans- 
field." / ^ , 

No. 12, p. 36. — It is likely that this iwas the "Lyon of Roxbury" of 
whom John Winthrop, Aug. 7, 1711, writes that he hired four horses. 
"Lyon himself," he adds, "comes with us with an axe, if there should 
be bows in the way." Otlier Lyons living in Roxbury at that time n 
were Thomas (No. 3), ae. 63; William- (No. 5), ae. 59; Eliphalet (No. /i_^. 
29), ae. 24, and possibly Joseph^ (No. 6), ae. 57, although he was ^ f_p-c£< 
probably living then in Woodstock. • 2^'t-<-^-«-c-e<2<j-,^ 4ij- .

340 SUPPLEMENT TO VOLUME I 

No. 116, p. 42. — The Eleazer Lyon mentioned in footnote, p. 42, 
was probably a son of Eleazer (No. 116.), since one of his daughters 
was named Bethia Allen, his wife's maiden name. Sutton Vital Re- 
cords contain the following items: baptized Oct. 6, 1776, Betty Lyon, 
Joanna Lyon, Lucresia Lyon, Martha Lyon; baptized Aug. 22, 1779, 
Anna Lyon, Bethia Allen Lyon. Anna is said to have been daughter 
of Eleazer and Mary Lyon; the others no doubt were of the same 
family. 

No. 127, p. 43. — Philip Lyon settled south of Wigwam Hill after 
1741. He was one of 22 men from Wilbraiham 1755-60; was one of 8 
men from that place in the army before Boston, after the Lexington 
alarm, he having rank of sergeant. Dr. Philip Lyon (perhaps son of 
the foregoing) died in Ludlow July 26, 1802, leaving no family; his 
"amiable consort" died the previous year at Randolph, Vt. (Hist. Conn. 
Valley). 

No. 64, p. 49. — It was possibly a daughter of Ebenezer (born about 
1733-4, but not recorded) that was the Elizabeth Lyon of Woodstock 
who married, Jan. 26, 1753, John Ransom. 

No. 190, p. 49. — Possibly the "Abel Lyon" who married, June 4, 
1767, Elizabeth Hosmer of Woodstock; if so, he married later in life 
than was usual in those days, or else was twice married. 

No. 69, p. 51. — Moses Lyon was chosen deacon of the Congrega- 
tional church in Holland Oct. 25, 1768. 

No. 210, p. 52. — Marsilva Lyon married Joseph Cheney, int. May 
7, 1764 (Sturbridge T. R.). 

No. 227, p. 55.— Mary (Lyon) Bird died Feb. 28, 1782; buried 
Needham. 

No. 228, p. 55. — A Hannah Lyon died at Needham Nov. 19, 1811,

No. 81, p. 56. — Seth may well have been father of the Sarah Lyon 
of Ashford, who married, Sept. 2, 1776, Daniel Lewis. 

No. 255, p. 57. — "Lois, son of Josiah Lyon, baptized March 9, 1745" 
(Sutton Vital Records).

No. 107, p. 58. — ^ Jonathan Lyon sold to Lieut. John Fisk 35 acres 
of land in Pomfret in 1754 for £1700 and bought 54% acres in Pom- 
fret and Ashford at the same time for £1660, "old tennor." 

No. 304, p. 60. — This could not have been the Zerviah Lyon of 
Pomfret, who married April 25, 1764 Joseph Ashley (born Hampton, 
Conn., June 1, 1728; died Pomfret, Sept. 1787). She was a second 
wife, therefore not likely to have been very young when married. She 
was most probably a descendant (granddaughter) of Abiel Lyon of 
Pomfret (No. 34). She may possibly have been the missing member 
of the large family of Jonathan Lyon (No. 107). She died May 5, 1781.

No. 306, p. 62. — Daniel Moody was "of Worcester." 

No. 134, p. 64. — A Providence paper says that Dea. William Lyon 
died at Woodstock, ae. 67 years, March 30, 1811, "in a supposed fit, 
while lighting a fire." 

No. 334, p. 64, — Josiah Lyon was Justice of the Peace in Salem 
1837; he had twelve children. -^'/7/ 

No. 146, p. 64. — Capt. John Lyon !K. of Leicester may have been 
son of this John Lyon. He was twice married. His first wife died in 
Sept. 1791; notice of death in "Chronicle" of Sept. 8. He married 
second at Rehoboth, April 21, 1792, Lydia, daughter of Capt. Obadiah 
Read. She died Sept. 3, 1796 (Chronicle) ; he died at Haverhill Sept. 
24, 1796.

on Correspondence for the town of Woodstock send by the hand of 
Capt. Lyon a letter accompanying a donation of sixty-five sheep for the 
revolutionary forces in Boston.

"The most notable event in recent Rhode Island history occurred 
April 10, when the whole State Conference, association, and even 
neighbors across the line, gathered in the beautiful church at Central 
Falls to celebrate the fortieth anniversary of the pastorate of Rev. 
James H. Lyon. There have been long pastorates in this seaboard 
state, notable, historical even, but at present none beside this stretches 
up quite to its twentieth year. The celebration came almost entirely 
as a surprise to Mr. Lyon, who refers to it now as a "conspiracy," and 
the spontaneity of the church was only equaled by the hearty love 
and delight of every minister and layman throughout the conference. 

"On the preceding Sabbath Mr. Lyon — who has "never been Doc- 
tored" — summed up the years in a sermon saturated by the radiant 
wit, keen intelligence, and exquisite English of which he is master. 
But Wednesday was the day. Men arose in that packed audience one 
after the other to praise, to reverence, to congratulate until even the 
enormous bouquet of roses which towered from the platform proved 
unable to hide his blushes. Speeches, letters, poetry simply poured

young, old and eternal men, Mr. Lyon is the last, ending his address 
with the loyal saluation, "O King, live forever I" Another prayed God 
to keep him long from Heaven that he might go on making Heaven 
here below. 

"But when he rose at last, tall, vibrant, with the fire of youth un- 
dimmed within his eyes, the audience murmured at his close, "Speak-

a more brilliant and clever address delighted a critical crowd."

1. FAMILY OF HENRY LYON OF NEWARK. 



Addenda, Errata and Notes. 

Furnished by John C. Cox, Dayton, Ohio.t 

Page 15, Footnote. — William Armstrong Crosier F. R. S. in his 
Armory and Registry of American Families gives the Coat of Arms 
of Henry Lyon of Perthshire and later of Milford, Conn., and also of 
William Bateman of Fairfield, Conn., as follows: 

Coat of Arms of Henry Lyon and other Lyons of Perthshire, 
Scotland. Argent, a lion rampant azure, armed and langued, within 
a double tressure flory, counter-flory gules. Crest: a demi-lady to 
the girdle habited and holding in her right hand the Royal Thistle 
and in the sinister (left hand) a chaplet laurel all ppr. Motto: 
"In te Domine Speravi." 

Coat of Arms of William Bateman. Or, on a chevron between 
three escalops gules, an ostrich feather argent. Crest: a pheasant 
ppr. Motto: "Nee pretio nee prece." 

Explanation of Coat of Arms. 
The meaning of some of the above heraldic words are as follows: 
Argent: silver or white. Azure: blue. Or: gold. A demi-lady hold- 
ing in her right hand a Royal Thistle etc., is an allusion to the 
alliance with the daughter of the King. Flory and Counterflory gules 
means flowered and counter-flowered red. 

Page 33, line 13. — The date of 1648 is incorrect after all, according 
to the modern method of reckoning time. King Charles was beheaded 
January 30, 1649, a date memorable in history. In those days, how- 
ever, the legal year began March 25 instead of January 1, so that 
the date was written January 30, 1648, or oftener January 30, 1648-9. 



N. B. — By Volume II. is meant Lyon Memorial, Connecticut and New 
Jersey Families. Throughout this Supplement, page and serial numbers are 
those of this volume. 

tMr. Cox has rendered invaluable service to the descendants of Henry Lyon 
by his thorough and painstaking critical review of the history of this family 
as presented in Vol. II. of the Lyon Memorial. A few additional notes and com- 
ments have been supplied also by the Editor in chief of the Memorial, these ni- 
dicated by the initials [A. B. L.]. 



358 SUPPLEMENT TO VOLUME II 

Henry Lyon was admitted to the Milford church Feb. 24, 1649 (if we 
can accept this date) less than a month after the tragedy at Whitehall. 
Miss Sidney Lyon states that the three brothers came to America 
in 1648. At least one of them, Thomas, came certainly earlier than 
this. In August, 1647, Thomas was settled in Stamford and married 
to the granddaughter of Governor John Winthrop. This completely 
refutes the hypothesis that he was present at the execution of King 
Charles [A. B. L.] . 

Page 44, line 16. — The statement made here that Henry Lyon was 
the youngest of the three brothers from Glen Lyon seems to be based 
on the fact that he was the last of the three to assume na'Slrimonial 
responsibilities. Thomas must have been married in If 46 or 17$77""~ ^ 
Richard is supposed to have been married as early as 1650, although 
this is by no means certain; Henry married in 1652. It is stated on 
page 252 that according to family tradition, Richard was the youngest 
of the three brothers, and this may have been true. He had only 
three children who were of age when his will was made, April 12, 
1678. This would indicate that his marriage, assuming that he had 
but one wife, took place about 1652 [1651-3]. The comment of Mr. 
J. C. Cox is: "it is my opinion from all known data and information 
of these three Lyons, that they should come in the following order as 
to birth, Thomas, Richard and Henry, the latter being the youngest 
and born probably about 1625. The date of Henry's birth, given by 
some authorities at 1618, looks now to be erroneous." [A. B. L.] 

Page 62, line 11. — ^The date of Henry Lyon's will, given here and 
elsewhere as 1702, was actually Feb. 9, 1703, according to our modern 
method of reckoning time. Up to the year 1752 in England and her 
colonies the legal year began March 25, although in the popular reck- 
oning, it began as now on January first. This explains the date of 
the will in question, which is given as "this ninth day of February, 1702 
alias 3," which is further fixed beyond question by the added state- 
ment "and in ye first year of ye Reign of our Sovereign Lady Anne 
&c Queen &c," since Anne became Queen of England April 23, 1702. 
Similar double dates occur frequently in the early history of the 
American colonies, and they should always be quoted in full; the 
usual form would be Feb. 9, 1702-3. [A. B. L.] 



N. B. Page and serial numbers are those of VoL II. 



HENRY LYON OF NEWARK 359 

Page 62, line 24. — ^Read: "John had died in 1694 and Thomas had 
shortly followed his younger brother; Nathaniel passed on in 1701." 
Note that the will of John was probated Nov. 2, 1694, while inventory 
of the estate of Thomas was made Nov. 21, 1694. Nathaniel was dead 
and his widow again married when Henry' made his will, for he speaks 
of his daughter "Mary Lyon, alias Potter, relict of my son Nathaniel 
Lyon." The death of Nathaniel could not therefore have taken place 
after 1702, and since his will is dated Dec. 20, 1700, it is practically 
certain that he died early in 1701. 

Page 80. — At the begnning of the paragraph, the probable date of 
the birth of Henry Lyon should be given. On page 44 it is stated that 
he was born perhaps about 1625, and that seems a reasonable con- 
jecture. Although nothing is known of his parentage one may surmise 
that their given names were Thomas and Mary. 

Page 80, line 8. — The date of Henry's marriage is given on p. 46 
as May, 1652, here simply as 1652. The name of his bride is given 
here as well as on p. 46 and elsewhere as Elizabeth Bateman (daughter 
of William). Savage and other authorities say that she was "Mary 
Bateman, the only daughter of William Bateman." Elizabeth may be 
correct, if it can be shown by her father's will that Henry Lyon's 
wife was so named, or if the deed of May 1st, 1675 of Henry Lyon 
and wife of Elizabethtown to Honorable Philip Carteret calls her 
Elizabeth. The will of William Bateman, quoted on p. 47 (line 13) 
mentions a grandchild, "Joseph Middlebrooke," showing decisively that 
he had another daughter besides the one who married Henry Lyon, 
and that this daughter married a Middlebrooke. Elizabeth, if that was 
her name, was probably born about 1630-2. 

Page 80, line 10. — Henry Lyon is here said to have been dismissed 
from Fairfield to Milford Church May 28, 1654. The fact was, as stated 
p. 46, that he was dismissed on that date from Milford to Fairfield 
Church. 

Page 80, line 18. — For February 4, 1861 read February 4, 1681, or 
possibly 1680. The date of Henry's second marriage, given in line 23 
as "about 1689-90" should be four or five years earlier. His second 
wife, Mary, was undoubtedly daughter of one of the early settlers in 
Newark, probably Matthew Campfield, Samuel Plum or Stephen Free-

360 SUPPLEMENT TO VOLUME II 

man. At the close of the paragraph, it is stated that Henry returned 
to Newark in 1696. On p. 73 in Prof. Winan's sketch of Lyons Farms, 
it is implied that he was still in Elizabeth in 1700. 

Page 80, No. 2. — Thomas must have been born in 1653, since his 
parents were not married until May 1652. 

Page 80, No. 3. — Mary was probably born 1656. If Samuel was 
"a lad of fourteen" at the time of the land distribution in 1667 (see 
p. 54), he must have been older than Mary. 

Page 80, No. 4. — Samuel was born probably in the latter part of 
the year 1654. 

Page 81, No. 10. — Mary was born probably about 1686-7. 

Page 81, No. 11. — Dorcas was born probably about 1688-9. 

Page 81, No. 2. — Thomas Lyon married Elizabeth , who 

was undoubtedly Elizabeth Ward, born 1660, sister of John Ward who 
married Mary Lyon, No. 3. They were children of Sergeant John 
Ward, Sr. The children of Thomas and Elizabeth should probably be 
named in the following order: 

I. Penelope; m. Thomas Thompson. 

II. Elizabeth; unm. 

III. Annas; m. Mills. 

IV. Isaac; b. 1691. 

V. Thomas; b. 1692. 

VI. Mattaniah; b. 1694 (year of his father's death). 

Page 82, line 1.— For 1669 read 1696. 

Page 82, line 16. — For "children" (of John and Mary), read "son." 

Page 82, line 21. — For Zopher read Thomas; Zopher was the 
brother, not the father, of Sarah Beach. 

Page 82, line 31.— For Aug. 20, 1703 read Jan. 20, 1707 as date of 
Samuel's will. The statement represented as based on this will that 
the children by first marriage were Samuel, Henry, Joseph, Mary and 
Sarah, those by second marriage, John, James and Hannah is certainly 
not in accordance with fact. The record should read: 

Children of Samuel and Sarah (Beach) Lyon: 

I. Samuel; b. 1676. He m. likely a dau. of Rev. Abraham Pierson Jr., 

N. B. Page and serial numbers are those of Vol. II. 



HENRY LYON OF NEWARK 361 

and Abigail Clark, he the son of Rev. Abraham and Abigail (Wheelwright) 
Pierson. 

II. John; b. about 1678. probably, since he married Elizabeth Riggs, born 
1679. She would not marry a man fifteen or twenty years younger than herself. 

III. Joseph; b. about 16 SO; m. Mary Pierson. 

IV. Henry; b. 1682; m. Mary Roberts. 

V. Sarah. 

Children of Samuel and Hannah (Pierson) Lyon: 

VI. Mary. 

VII. Hannah. 

VIII. James; b. Oct. 5, 1700; d. Nov. 16, 1775, at Newport, R. I. 

Page S3, line 8.— For 1726 read February 1726-7; the date must 
have been between the 15th and the 27th of Feb. 1727. Mary Harrison 
(line 9) was daughter of Richard Harrison, Sr. of Branford, Conn, 
(from W. Kirby, Bng.) Sarah Brown (line 10) was born about 1685, 
daughter of Joseph and Hannah (Freeman) Brown. Hannah Freeman, 
born 1655, daughter of Stephen and Hannah (Astwood) Freeman. 
Hannah Astwood was daughter of Capt. John Astwood and his first 
wife. Joseph Brown was son of John and Mary (Burwell) Brown, 
John being one of the Newark pioneers from Milford. The last three 
lines of the paragraph refer to an unidentified Joseph Lyon, certainly 
not No. 5. 

Children of Joseph and Mary (Pierson) Lyon: 

I. Abigail; b. about 1685-6; m. 1704-5, Joseph' Crane, Esq. [Jasper-, Jasperi]. 
*II. Mary; tn. Nathan Foster. 

III. Hannah; b. about 1704; m. Samuel* Sayre, b. about 1700, d. 1760 
[Samuel', DanleP, Thomas^].; they had a son Samuel, and other children, names 
not known to the writer. 

IV. £Iizabeth; b. about 1706; m. Daniel Sayre, second cousin of Samuel. 

Page 83, No. 32. — For Sarah (?) Cook, read Mary Cook. 

Page 83, No. 6. — Nathaniel Lyon married Mary, who was probably 
Mary Camp, born 1664. or possibly Mary Harrison. As a widow she 
married in 1702 Samuel Potter. Mary Harrison was daughter of 
Richard Harrison, Jr., of the colony from Branford. 

Page 83, No. 7.— John Lyon died Oct. 23-31, 1694. His wife was 

Hannah , probably Hannah Baldwin, daughter of John and 

Hannah (Bruen) Baldwin. Nothing is known of his descendants or 
whether indeed he had grandchildren.

she and Israel were twins. The Crane Genealogy says she was born 1727, but 
she is named in the will of her father dated Aug. 2, 1726. The 1727 may have 
been a misreading of 1721. and this may after all be the correct date, Abigail

1714, the other 1721.

it is probable that all were born before 1759. Henry married possibly 

a second wife Hannah . It is probable that his son James, 

No. 188, was Col. James, No. 2163a, (p. 238), and that Stephen; No. 
192, was the unidentified Stephen, No. 2165, whose birth is given on p. 
238 as 1751, on p. 239 as 1755. The record however on page 239 cer- 
tainly does not all relate to this Stephen, whose wife, however, was 
probably Mary.

Page 101, No. 70. — The dates of birth and death of Abraham Lyon 
are identical with those of Mary, wife of Josiah Lyon, No. 65. The 
circumstance leads one to suspect that some error has been made by 
a transcriber; it does not prove that they are erroneous as referring 
to Abraham. An expert genealogist states that Abraham was born in 
1710 and died 1732. It is mentioned that he had one son Abraham, a 
Captain in the Revolutionary Army. If this is true, Capt. Abraham was

was Abigail Baldwin, born about 1724, died some where between 1773 
and 1779. She was daughter of Nathaniel* Baldwin§, 1690-1750 [John' 
and Ruth Botsford, daughter of Henry, John^ and Mary, Sylvester' and 
Sarah Bryant]. Record of dates of birth of the older children are 
wanting, except in the case of Phebe. The following record is prob- 
ably substantially correct, although the name of Joaeph should stand 
first in the list. 

Children of Ezekiel and Phebe (DalgUsh?) Crane: 

I. Phebe; b. 1740; bapt. at Lyons Farms Baptist Church, Oct. 15, 1769;

tThe grounds for believing that Ezekiel was twice married are these: 
1. His daughter Phebe was born in 1740, when Abigail Baldwin was only 
sixteen years old, possibly seventeen or eighteen [Baldwin Genealogy says she 
was born 1724, the date was certainly not before 1722]; 2. An Ezekiel Crane 
"born about 1710" married Phebe Dalglish [Douglas], born 1715, daughter of 
John2 and Sarah (Ward) Dalglish [Robert' and Mary Dennison] ; no Ezekiel 
Crane is recorded in New Jersey earlier than 1727-8 except this Ezekiel tjf- 
.*ee«prh b. 171L; note also that Phebe Dalglish's mother was Sarah and that 
Phebe had a sister Rachel, who married a Canfield. 

§Nathaniel Baldwin married first Mary Congar, dau. of Samuel= [John" and 
Mary] — so says Baldwin Genealogy; others say that Nathaniel's wife was 
Mary' Crane [Azarlah^ and Mary Treat, Jasper' and Alice], Mary Treat was 
the daughter of Capt. Robert Treat and Jane Tapp, dau. of Edmund Tapp. 

Capt. Robert Treat was son of Richard Treat and Alice . Nathaniel 

had seven children by wife Mary. In 1730 he married a second wife Esther, 
1689-1763, and had five children by her.

County up into Morris County and enlisted in the army and is supposed

fact that Mercy Wilcox was a sister of Sarah, wife of Ebenezer Lyon,

same Nathaniel, since his widow Mercy applied for a pension — unless 
both were in the Revolution or else each had married a wife Mercy. 
[It may be noted that Littell gives the name of Nathaniel's wife in 
different places as Mary, Mercy and Massey.] The question of the

Richard Lyon of Fairfield, and not improbably the Abel Lyon who 
served in the Revolutionary war from Lanesboro, Mass. (No. 155), 
or possibly a son of that Abel. The given name "Caleb Meeker" 
of one of Abel's grand children points surely to Fairfield, Conn., as 
the home of the family.

ried in 1794 Daniel Doty, born March 23, 1765, son of John= Doty 
[Joseph'] and his second wife Sarah Clark, daughter of Daniel Clark, 
a descendant of Richard Clark of Elizabethtown, N. J. Daniel Doty 
married firs.t, about 1787, Elizabeth Potter, who soon died (about 
1789-90, daughter of Amos* [DanieP, Samuer] and sister of John 
Potter, who married Bethiah Lyon, No. 388 and also settled in 
Butler Co., O. In 1790 Daniel Doty went on an exploring tour down 
the Ohio river as far as the present site of Cincinnati. He found 
there only two houses — log cabins — one occupied by Major Benjamin 
Stites, from Scotch Plains, N. J., the other by Capt. John S. Gano, 
also from New Jersey. Rev. Daniel Clark, uncle of Daniel Doty, was 
the first minister of the gospel in that region, having previously 
preached many years in Pennsylvania. Daniel Doty returned to 
New Jersey 1793-4, to bring thence his new bride, Elizabeth Crane; 
he purchased a large tract of land in Butler Co., near the present 
site of Middletown and settled upon it in the fall of 1795 or spring 
of 1796. There he reared a large family, and there, on May 8, 1848, 
he died. The date of his wife's death has not been ascertained.

oldest child of Ezekiel and Phebe Crane. He married Eunice Dod, 
born 1741-2, died Feb. 20, 1822, daughter of Thomas^ Dod [DanieP, 
Daniel, Jr.^ Daniel'] and iSarah Newcomb. The following record is 
preserved in the Courthouse at Newark, N. J.: "On May 5, 1794, the 
lands of Joseph Crane, deceased, in Newark, were divided between 
Sarah, wife of Timothy Day, Jr., Phebe Crane and Rhoda Crane, min- 
ors, said lauds bounded north by the road and lands of Tabitha Wood§ 
and southeast and southward by lands of Ezekiel Crane [No. 84].

II. Phebe; b. about 1776-7.

It is liliely that there were other ohihiren older than Sarah but not living 
in 1794. 

Page 115, No. 413, — ^Asher Lyon could not have been a son of 
Aaron, iNo. 141, who was born 1769, since Asher's son Joseph, No. 728, 
was born 1785. Neither does it seem very probable that Asher was a 
grandson of Mattaniah, No. 52, born 1724, although that would not be 
impossible. He might more easily have been grandson of Mattaniah, 
No. 17, born not later than 1694, but there seems to be no reason for 
believing this. It will be noticed that his wife's maiden name was 
Smith, so that the unidentified Smith Lyon, born about 1790, who 
married Jerusha Dean in Springfield, N. J., might easily have been 
his son. As it is, the names of Asher Lyon, No. 413, his son Joseph, 
No. 728 and his grandsons, Jacob L., No. 1219, .John H., No. 1216 and 
Philip E., No. 1221. should find place in the list of unidentified Lyons.

DESCENDANTS OF DAVID LYON, NO. 178. 



From Dr. Palmer Heath Lyon there have been received oppor- 
tunely the following records of some of the descendants of David 
Lyon, No. 178, whose children are given among the foregoing notes; 
see page 375 of this volume. 

464e. VI. 178. STEPHEN' LYON [David^ Nathaniel*, Capt. 
Henry^ Samuel-, Henry'] was born at Lyons, Somerset Co., N. J., 
Sept. 3, 1789. and died Sept. 10, 1873. He married, Aug. 25, 1811, 
Nancy Hill, born Feb. 17, 1792, died Sept. 17, 1847, of Basking Ridge. 
Compare record No. 2165 on p. 239 of Memorial, Conn, and N. J. 
Families. One may surmise that that record really applies to this 
Stephen, but with erroneous dates of birth and death of Nancy Hill. 
The other items might all be true of this Stephen except the wife 
Mary in 1818.

WILLIAM LYON OF UNIONVILLE. 

The ancestry of this William has not been ascertained, but it 
may be assumed, that he was of the family of Thomas Lyon of Rye, 
and probably in the fifth generation. He is said to have been born 
in Westchester County in 1774, and to have had a brother Samuel 
about two years younger than himself. He, probably with his pa- 
rents, went from Westchester County to Greenbush, near Albany, 
but returned to Westchester County and settled at Unionville. He 
took part in the war of 1812. He married Mary See, born 1780, 
died April 24, 1847; buried at Unionville, N. Y. William Lyon 
died March 18, 1849; buried in cemetery of Dutch Reformed Chh., 
Unionville, N. Y.

1 Vol«ine I. of ine Lyon Memorial, pp. 391, 392, mere are mem- _ 



In Vol«ine I. of tne Lyon Memorial, pp. 391, 3&z, mere are mem- 
oranda of several Lyons who lived in Greenfield, Mass., 1790-1820.1 q^^^ 
It seems most likely that they were all related, perhaps all descend-lw, 54 
ants of Caleb Lyon, No. 168. Caleb was married April 28, 1756. HeT 3«^; 
may have had a son born early in 1757, and it would have been natu-/ /^L^^ 
ral that he should have named him John from his grandfather and! /7*^*-^ 
great grandfather. This would account for the .John Lyon who died/ A«->»*^ 
in Greenfield Oct., 1798---^he JohnTborn 1781 might have been the Z'^* 
-oWest son of the foregoing, and was probably the same John who r / 

bought a saw-mill in 1803, who married Patience , and 

removed from Greenfield to Bernardston, and who died Sept. 19, 
1839, leaving seven children. Another plausible hypothesis is that 
Caleb's brother John, born 1740, joined him in Greenfield, after his 
marriage, which took place in Goshen Aug. 8, 1771. (See Vol. I, p. 
67). This would then probably be the John who died 1798, and the 
John born 1781 may have been his son. Betsey Lyon, who was mar- 
ried in Greenfield Jan. 28, 1795, was probably a daughter of Caleb, 
or else of his brother John.§ 

It will be remembered that Caleb's son Caleb, No-. 361, removed 
to New York, settling first in Walworth, Wayne Co. Now William 
Lyon of Wayne Co., N. Y. (see Vol. I, p. 312), whose son Daniel 
lived in Walworth, may very easily have been a brother or cousin 
of Caleb, Jr., and, since we have no other clew to his antecedents, 
we may accept this as a plausible hypothesis — ^the more so, since the 
immediate relatives of Caleb, Sr. were of an uncommonly enterpris- 
ing disposition. 

Records have recently been received of another Lyon of Green- 
field, who certainly belonged to the family of Caleb, and who also 
went to New York State to seek his fortune. His name also was 



lit will be remembered that several of the brothers of Caleb Lyon settled 
In Goshen, which is not very far from Greenfield; it Is quite possible that some 
of their descendants came to Greenfield. We may note that one of them, Levi, 
had a son .Tphn born 1780, buf he seems not to have been long a resident of 
Goshen. Some of the "soff^ of Aaron Lyon of Sturbridge lived 1780-1825 in 
A.8hfield, quite near Greenfield and many of their descendants have never been 
traced. Jacob Lyon No. 132, from Woodstock, settled about 1770 in Gageboro, 
not far from Greenfield. There was a son Jacob and a daughter "Rockse" of 
whose history nothing has been ascertained, but the children were left fatherless 
while yet very young and might naturally have gone to join their kinsfolk in 
Greenfield. It will bo noted that the name Roxy appears among the children 
of William of Greenfield. There seems no reason for supposing that any of the 
Lyons of Lanesboro and New Ashford, descendants of Richard of Fairfield, found 
their way to Greenfield. ^^ I * if ~^ 




/^ 



WILLIAM LYON OF GREENFIELD 427 

William, born July 25, 1790. He could hardly have been a son of 
Caleb, Sr., or even of Caleb's brother John. It is almost certain that 
he was grandson of one or the other of these, probably of Caleb. 
His grandson, Alva E. Lyon, of Perry, la., says that he was one of 
a family of twelve or thirteen children, one of them named Horace. 
They were probably not all children of one mother, but the name 
of the father has passed out of the remembrance of the family. One 
of the brothers was probably the Rufus Lyon who had a daughter 
born in Greenfield Nov. 15, 1820 — probably the same Rufus who was . 
afterward (1827) Justice of the Peace and town clerk in Stock- 
bridge, Windsor Co., Vt. This is inferred from the fact that Wil- 
liam named one of his sons Rufus. 

William Lyon left home at the age of fourteen, "his mother 
having died and his father having married again," and went to Ver- 
mont, where he lived ten years. It seems likely that he spent those 
years in Craftsbury, where Nehemiah Lyon, probably his father's 
own cousin, had settled. About 1814 William Lyon removed from 
Vermont to Allegany County, N. Y., where he married Rhoda Millett 
March 22, 1815. He remained in that region twenty-eight years, 
then went west, locating in Jo Daviess County, 111., where he died 
April 25, 1881. The brothers of William became widely scattered, 
settling in New York, Vermont, Pennsylvania and even in Georgia. 
Family tradition says that one of the sons had a daughter Mary 
who was a fine musician in her time.

SAMUEL LYON OF HARTFORD. 
(See Vol. II. p. 371.) 

Nothing new has been learned of the antecedents of this Sam- 
uel, but he was certainly of the family of Richard Lyon of Fairfield, 
and quite likely may have been No. 198 (Vol. II. p. 271). The name of 
one of his grandsons, the oldest child of (Ezra Lyon (Vol. I. p. 316), 
Caleb Meeker Slocum Lyon is very suggestive, pointing to a close 
relationship with the family of Caleb* Lyon [Samuel*, Rachard% Rich- 
ard'] of Fairfield, since Caleb's daughter Rhoda married Caleb Meek- 
er. Ezra's brother, Levi C. Lyon, married a Slocum. Samuel Lyon 
with his family moved to Fulton, Co., N. Y., about 1795, settling in 
EJdinburg and securing land, it is said, from Van Vechten, Patroon 
of Albany. According to H. M. Lyon of Minneapolis, his great grand- 
•f son, there were five of the sons who settled in New York State, in 
Saratoga and Fulton Counties. 

One of these was Levi C. Lyon (Vol II, p. 371), another was cer- 
tainly Abel Lyon (Vol. I, p. 316), still another was probably Ezra Lyon 
(Vol. I, p. 316), who was brother, not son, of Abel. Irene (Lyon) Bass 
was almost certainly a daughter of Samuel. The revised record of 
Samuel's family, as far as ascertained is as follows: 

* / 

Children of Samuel and Eunice ( ) Lyon: ^^ ^A,-«,tj» / ^^-Ct^fc^ 

I. Abel; b. about 1775. ^7f^U (^^c-*-*-**-*. 

II. Ezra; b. about 1790. 

III. Levi C. ; b. Hartford, Conn., 1791. 

IV. Irena; b. about 1792-7. 

There were several other children, including two sons. 

Recently some other descendants of Abel Lyon have been traced. 
One of Abel's sons was Daniel Brayton Lyon. The fact that the name 
Brayton occurs also in the family of Edward Birch Lyon, another of 
Abel's sons, makes it probable that the maiden name of some com- 
mon ancestor, possibly Eunice, wife of Samuel, was Brayton. Abel's 
wife's name was Esther Pulling, said to have been born about the 
time of the battle of Lexington, and to have lived not far from Dan- 
bury, Conn. Daniel Brayton Lyon was born in Edinburg, N. Y., Feb. 
24, 1820. He was a graduate of Union College 1847 (name given er- 
roneously in Vol. I, page 419 as David B. Lyon); Phi Beta Kappa; 
became an Episcopal clergyman and lived successively in Battle 
Creek, Mich., Ionia, Mich., Ripon, Wis., and (1908) Minneapolis, Minn. 
When living in Ripon he was Counta^ Superintendent of Schools, Fond

October fifth, 1710, the French fort at Port Royal, Nova Scotia, 
was surrendered with 258 men to a force of Colonials under command 
of Col. Francis Nicholson, who was colonial governor of Maryland 
1694-99, of Virginia 1699-1705, of Nova Scotia 1712-17 and of South 
Carolina 1721-25. Among the officers under Col. Nicholson there was 
a Captain Lyon, whose identity has not been ascertained. The fort 
was renamed by its captors Annapolis. One of the keys which were 
given up at the surrender is now in the cabinet of the Massachusetts 
Historical Society. • s '' - C

A LYON FAMILY TRADITION. 

From a letter written Feb. 18, 1879, by Alvin Lyon, son of EUsha, No. 450 
of family of WllHam of Roxbury; Alvln was then 83 years old. 

The Tradditions of Our family are like this: 

Long time past Our ancestors lived in france Near the City of 
Lyons. At the Massacre of St. Bartholomew, Being French Hugenots 
a Remnant escaped the Massacre of that Terable Night, they went 
Over to England where we received a commingling of Anglo Saxon 
Blood took place, passing to Wales and not liking they returned to 
England and from theire Seven Brothers of the name of Lyon emi- 
grated to this Country, they came Direct to providence Bringing 
their families theire Ox Yokes their Hay poles plows chains and all 
the Impliments of husbandry. Havein procured Carts and Oxen they 
proceeded Inland when Night came on they divided themselves among 
the farmers the woman took from the cart her wheel and obtaining 
a Distiff of flax sat down to her wheel with a will the old man God 
Bless him, took his ax and mounted the wood pile in this way they 
came to Woodstock Windham Co. Conn, theire these seven brothers 
bot farms and settled. Theire names I don't know. From the Seven 
Brothers all the Lyons in the United States are said to have desended. 

I suppose it was as far back as the Indinan War that my great 
grand father Belonging to a Cavlry Company heard a Discharge of Mus- 
quetry and with Curage that New No fear went to Reconoitre. A 
sharp Report a horse without a Rider soon told his fate, his name 
I think was Aaron Lyon. A Blacksmiths shop in 1780 Covered the 
spot where the Ashes of the hero lay. The care of the family then 
fell to my grand father Jonathan Lyon. He married Rebecca Corbin 
and they raised a Large family. The youngest children, Hannah, 
Nancy, Moses and Corbin were schoolmates at Woodstock Academy 
with governor Marcey of this State. My father's name was Elisha. 
He and his Brother Abel came to Milford, N. Y., 1790. The town was 
then an unbroken wildernes. My uncle Jonathan (Vol. I, No. 451) 
was Colonel in the Windham Regiment and went down to Stonington 
in 1812. We claim as of our line General Lyon who was killed at 
Springfield Mossiri. 

The story of our foreign Birth I Learned from My Mother whose 
name previous to her m'ttrriage was Rebecca Clark, a woman of high 
culture, born in pomfret near Putnam's Wolf Den. My father came 
from Woodstock to Milford nbout 1789 with his ax and his Brother 
Abel, bot 200 acres and chopt til July then went back to Woodstock 



A LYON FAMILY TRADITION 435 

to work in haying the next March with 2 yolte of Oxen, a wood sled, 
mother, a baby boy, a few articles of goods they began life in Mil- 
ford. * * my great grand father was returning from providence with 
his cart and oxen heavily loaded when he met governor Trumbul 
in his coach, the governor thought the yeoman would turn out and 
the man with the Lyon Blood said No. the governor said whoa But man 
with the Lyon Blood In him said goalong Buck and the governor was in 
the Dirt. 

In the war of the Revolution my grandfather was old enough to 
have been a Soldier But was prevented By a Broken Limb making him 
a Cripple for life. 

[The foregoing in an interesting blending of heroic myth, legendary 
history and personal reminiscence. One can hear in it the ipsissima 
verba of that good mother of his, Rebecca Clark.]
