This is on SP:

James LYON & Janet THORBURN
1 Jun 1835 Glasgow, Lanark

The following is an extracted record that is also on SP.

James Lyon c. 23 Jun 1811 Abbey Paisley, Renfrew
John Lyon & Margaret Lamb
Batch: C119582


I can't see a marriage on SP 1800-1811 in Scotland for John & Margaret.

Children to John & Margaret:
Janet 22 Jun 1829
Shusannah b. 6 Oct 1833
Jane b. 13 Jun 1847
Margaret Porteous b. 1 Feb 1852

There are others. Looks like 4 sons and 3 daughters born to 1854 in Lanark.

It seems as though all children born in Lanark were after that 17 Aug 1828 marriage with only James born before that date and in Renfrew. But his reg is LYON with father = John not LAMB with just mother = Margaret.

I can see no other reg for children born in Scotland to John & Margaret between 1811 and 1829.

A tree has 1789 for Margaret.

Margaret Lamb
birth: 7 December 1789
christening: 10 December 1789 , ABBEY (PAISLEY), RENFREW, SCOTLAND
residence: 1789 Eaglesham, Renfrewshire, Scotland
father: Thomas Lamb
mother: Margaret Bouman

And 1785 for John.

John Lyon
birth: 17 January 1785
christening: 23 January 1785 LOW CHURCH, PAISLEY, RENFREW, SCOTLAND
father: James Lyon
mother: Mary Alexander

Has to be 2x John & Margaret.

So we have the one baptism for James in 1811 in Abbey Paisley and no sign of other children and no sign of the marriage.

Also can't find James or son John L in 1841.

There is definitely a problem with these censuses, this looks like the 1851 with James and son John (L)... same address details as the 1851 with Janet in post #1, odd why it is in 2 parts :confused:

1851
James Lyon
Age: 37
Born abt 1814 Glasgow, Lanark
Occupation: Upholsterer

Civil Parish: Glasgow St David
Town: Glasgow
County: Lanarkshire
Address: 95 Candleriggs St
Roll: CSSCT1851_156

James Lyon 37
John Lyon 15 [b. abt 1836 Glasgow, Glassastaine (apprentice)]
Eliz Lyon 12 [b. abt 1839 Hlasgow]
Beatrice Kirbuyn Lyas 30 [Sister, b. abt 1821, white seam sewer]
