My name is H. Winchester Lyon and my family, the Lyon side are all from Bamboo, St. Ann. A small group of my family are attempting to create a genealogy chart for the Lyon family. We are really just beginning and don't know very much as yet. One think we have realized so far is that ALL persons with the surname "Lyon" are related and also that we are spread across the north coast and also in Kingston.

I would love for us to share notes and to see if we can cross reference. In the meantime, I will try to find out more about Samuel Rupert Lyon. If I find anything I will post it here.
