[Ancestral Link: Lura Minnie Parker (Stagge), daughter of Minnie May Elmer (Parker), daughter of Mark Alfred Elmer, son of Hannah Polina Child (Elmer), daughter of Alfred Bosworth Child, son of Mark Anthony Child, son of Increase Child, son of Mary Lyon (Child), daughter of Joseph Lyon, son of Joseph Lyon, son of Sarah Ruggles (Lyon).]

Birth: 1628, Nazeing, Essex, England
Death: February 9, 1688, Roxbury, Suffolk County, Massachusetts, USA

William Lyon married: (1) Roxbury 17 June 1646 Sarah Ruggles, daughter of THOMAS RUGGLES {1637, Roxbury}.

They had 7 children: John, Thomas, Samuel, William, Joseph, Sarah, and Jonathan.

The dates given above for the births of John and Thomas, the two eldest sons of this immigrant, are presented in the published Roxbury vital records as baptisms. The Roxbury church records, however, do not include these records, and neither parent was a member of Roxbury church before 1650. These dates are more likely birth dates, and are so entered here. Some authors have included two sons named Jonathan in this family, but the Roxbury town and church records show only one son of this name.

Burial: Eliot Burying Ground, Roxbury, Suffolk County, Massachusetts, USA
