LYON Family

LYON Family

The earliest Lyon ancestor I have information on was Norman de Leonne, from France, who fought with William the Conqueror at the Battle of Hastings, 1066. His son was Sir Roger de Leonne, 1040, also born in France. His descendents were: Sir Paganus de Leonne, 1075, France, then name changed. Hugo de Leonibus (or Leonne), 1121, France, Ernoid de Leonibus, 1150, France, John de Leonibus (alias Lyon), 1176, Norfolk, England, Pagan de Leonibus, 1195, Norfolk, England, and then name changed again. Sir John de Lyouns (info states: grandfather at head of Lyon family in Scotland), 1225, Norfolk, England, next generation was John de Lyon, 1250, Norfolk, England and his son was the first LYON; Sir Adam Lyon, 1285, Norfolk, England. This inormation was copied from the Salt Lake City Library by a co-worker of my uncle
