Hello Josie,

Thanks for looking.

Yes, John Lamb LYON.

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.

I've not found James in shipping records.

Hi again Dave,

Here’s one for you to consider and probably dismiss!
Source Citation: Parish: South Leith; ED: 35; Page: 11; Line: 670; Year: 1841.
It’s not quite the right area, but it’s just that the children, John and Elizabeth seem to be the right age!

Address: Water Lane

Janet Thorburn 30, Seaman’s wife
Jean Thorburn 8
John Thorburn 6
Elizabeth Thorburn 3

Helen Thorburn 5 months

Some of my ancestors were masquerading under the wife’s maiden name!

All the best,

Josie

Daughter Margaret LYON married Francis Ernest STOWE.

They named their children:

Winifred Lyon - mother's name
Bessie Pearson - grandmother's name
Frances Ernestine - father's name variation :2fun: I'm sure they wanted a son. :D
