William Lyon was born in 1580 in Heston, Middlesex, England. He was the second son of William Lyon (about 1540-1624) and Isabelle Wightman (1559-Unknown). William had an older brother, John (1578), and younger siblings Isabelle (1582), Audrey (1584) and Robert (possibly Richard) (1590).

Little is known of the life of William Lyon. On July 17, 1615, at age 35, he married Anne Carter, age 21, at Harrow-on-the-Hill, Middlesex, England. Anne Carter was born in 1594 in Heston of unknown parents.

William's and Anne's son, William Lyon, was born on December 23, 1620. They probably had other children but their names, if they existed, are unknown.

William Lyon died in London in 1634. He was 54. It is unknown when Anne Carter Lyon died but she may have predeceased William, for in 1635 their son, William, then only age 15, emigrated to America in the company of Isaac Heath, a weapons manufacturer. By some accounts, William Lyon the younger was an orphan at the time he emigrated.
