William LYON
Isabell WIGHTMAN
WARNING:  I have no primary documentation supporting his page, nor do I have documentation supporting our subject's ancestry.  Sources are secondary, so caveat emptor!
Husband:  William LYON

Death:  bef. 7 Sep 1624

Father:  John LYON
Mother:  Jean/Joan __?__
Marriage:  if William and Isabelle were, indeed, both born in Middlesex and if, as it appears, William died in Middlesex, then it is more than likely that they were married in Middlesex and that all their children were born in Middlesex.

I'm told that these data, which are from Sidney Lyon's (1907) Lyon Memorial, are now believed to be incorrect, at least with regard to Richard.

Why do I doubt that anyone has a valid marriage record for this couple?  Not to mention the one 40 years after the husband's death (though this appears to be a typo for 1646, which makes it only half as absurd).  It is also unlikely that William was married in 1623 in Scotland, then fathered three sons, including one in 1621, before he died in 1624 in Middlesex.  Little Stanmore is in Middlesex, not Essex.  I don't doubt that William and Isabelle were married.  I do doubt that anyone is more than guessing as to when and where.

When data are "all over the map" this way, you can be fairly certain there is little primary documentation to support them.  All seem to agree, and I don't doubt, that William LYON & Isabelle WIGHTMAN were married and that, apparently, John and Joan LYON were William's parents.  The one primary datum seems to be the burial record of William.  The marriage record in 1646 is absurd for a man who died in 1624.  I strongly doubt that William's parents were John & Janet (KEITH) LYON because 1) her name was Janet, not Joan; 2) William's mother, Joan, is said to have died in 1535 while Janet (KEITH) LYON was still living in 1559; and 3) John, as 7th Lord Glamis, was presumably living in Glamis, Forfarshire, Scotland, not Middlesex, England.  This is not the only source trying to fabricate royal connections to these LYONs.

Husband's Name: William LYON [AFN: 9J65-64]
Born: 1540; Place: Little Stanmore, Middlesex, Eng
Died: 7 Sep 1624, Little Stanmore, MIddlesex, England
Buried:  7 Sep 1624, Little Stanmore, Middlesex, England
Father:  John LYON
Mother:  Mrs. Joan LYON

Married:  17 Jun 1646, Eng

Wife's Name:  Isabell WIGHTMAN [AFN: 86X6-37]
Born:  1559, Of Harrow-On-The-Hill, Middlesex, England
Died: England
Father:  William WIGHTMAN
Mother:  Audrey DEERING

Children:
1.  John LYON, b. 1568, Heston, Middlesex, Eng
2.  William LYON, b. 1580, Heston, London, Englsnd
3.  Isabelle LYON, b. 1582, Heston, Middlesex, Eng
4.  Audrey LYON, b. 1584, Heston, Middlesex, Eng
5.  Thomas LYON, b. 1585, Heston, Little Stanmer, Middlesex, England
6.  Robert LYON, b. 1590, Heston, Little Stanmer, Middlesex, England; d. 17 Oct 1678, Fairfield, Fairfield, Conn.
7.  Richard LYON, b. 1624/1625, Heston, Middlesex, England; d. 17 Oct 1678, Fairfield, Fairfield, Conn.

Why do these last two children make me feel someone is trying to force the data to fit some preconception?  And, of course, it's impossible for Isabelle to have birthed a child in 1624/5, when she was in her 60s.

6.  Family TreeMaker.  World Family Trees.  There are numerous pedigrees giving William & Isabelle (WIGHTMAN) LYON as the parents of a Richard LYON.  They all suffer from the data being "all over the map," just as is the case with the records from the LDS.
