Hello,

Another go at this one.

James LYON & Janet THORNBURN
1 Jun 1835 Glasgow, Lanark ??

Children:
John Lamb b. abt 1836 Glasgow
Elizabeth b. 8 Feb 1839 Glasgow

Beatrice Maria THORBURN b. 25 Dec 1820 Glasgow - James & Elizabeth

1841 ?
County: Renfrewshire
Address High Street, Paisley Low
Alexr Sheers 40
Ann Speer 40
Rob Speer 75
Margt Speer 10
Ann Speer 5
David Speer 5
James Thorburn 15
Elizth Lyon 3 born Scotland

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

That's an error - Beatrice is a THORBURN and unmarried so not a LYON.

Janet and daughter:

Index to Assisted British Immigration 1839-1871
LYON JANET 44 - DEC 1858 JOHN AND LUCY 13 274
LYON ELIZABETH 19 - DEC 1858 JOHN AND LUCY 13 274

This is John Lamb and spouse:

Unassisted to Melbourne
LYON ELIZTH 22 - MAR 1861 DONALD MCKAY B 187 003
LYON JOHN L 25 - MAR 1861 DONALD MCKAY B 187 003


I don't know where or when James died. 1851 census has 'married' for Janet.

NSW Death 6181/1916 LYON JOHN L - JAMES - JANET - BALMAIN NORTH

That is probably Elizabeth in 1841 but where is John L and the rest of the family.

No idea how SPEAR(S) fits in.

Thanks.

Dave
