Hello Julie,

Thanks for looking. It seems to fit except for Andrew so I'm not sure. I could not find a matching family in FreeCEN that's why I posted.


Death # 6181/1916 LYON JOHN L JAMES JANET BALMAIN NORTH

http://adbonline.anu.edu.au/biogs/A100179b.htm
John Lamb LYON married Elizabeth Gillespie PEARSON in Glasgow on 3 December 1860 before sailing for Melbourne; they arrived on 20 March 1861. His father, a storekeeper at Maldon, had migrated some years earlier.

Earlier ??? I can't find a James LYON(S) that would fit in shipping records so I don't know if it was before or after 1841 census. Their youngest child is 12 in 1851. Also, James in the death reg could be an error although there is this marriage which fits with the unmarried sister in 1851:

Private IGI
James LYON & Janet THORNBURN
1 Jun 1835 Glasgow, Lanark, Scotland

Regards,

Dave
