Hello,

John Lamb LYON & E. G. PEARSON
Marriage: 3 Dec 1860 Anderston, Glasgow, Lanark

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 [James], a storekeeper at Maldon, had migrated some years earlier.
James arrived assisted or unassisted and when. ???

James LYON & Janet THORNBURN
Marriage: 1 Jun 1835 Glasgow, Lanark


1851
Piece: SCT1851/644 Place: Glasgow -Lanarkshire Enumeration District: 3
Civil Parish: St David's Ecclesiastical Parish, Village or Island: St David's
Folio: 546 Page: 9 Schedule: 33
Address: 95 Candleriggs Street
Surname First name(s) Rel Status *** Age Occupation Where Born Remarks
LYON Janet Head M F 37 Upholstereress Lanarkshire - Glasgow
LYON John Son U M 15 Glass Stainer (Apprentice) Lanarkshire - Glasgow
LYON Eliz Dau U F 12 Scholar Lanarkshire - Glasgow
LYON Beatrice Thorburn Sister U F 30 White Seam Sewer Lanarkshire - Glasgow
Says migrated some years earlier but perhaps even before 1851 census. If not where is James in 1851? When did he arrive. ???

The only vessel I can see arriving in Melbourne in March 1861 and no passenger list on that site:

arrival: Donald McKay

Origin: Liverpool
Destination: Melbourne 1861 Mar

Arrived unassisted to Melbourne, so that just leaves James to find.

LYON ELIZTH 22 MAR 1861 DONALD MCKAY B 187 003
LYON JOHN L 25 MAR 1861 DONALD MCKAY B 187 003

Regards,

Dave
