Hi Annpart

I cannot find a Thomas Lyon born in Leigh in the 1861 census around 1853 but I can find a few other Thomas Lyons of the same age in Lancashire.

I take it you havent got his marriage cert to Martha?

I have found Thomas in 1871 aged 18, Head, Married, born Leigh, Lancashire, a Labourer in Coal Mine.
Martha is aged 18, a factory cotton spinner, born Wigan.

The residence is Ince In Makerfield. The street looks like Warmington or Washington Street.

This may make it easier to find him in 1861.

Hi

On the IGI I found a Thomas Lyon baptised in APril 1854 in Leigh, Lancashire, son of George and Alice Lyon.

There was a Thomas Lyon birth in the Mar Quarter of 1854 in Leigh registration district.

The fathers name on the marriage cert will help confirm who his parents were.

There was a marriage of a Thomas Lyon in the Dec Quarter of 1870 in the Wigan district and on the same page was a Martha Barton.
