Charles married Elizabeth Newman on 12 May 1859 at Cranford St Andrew Northamptonshire.

I have found them in the 1881 census household at Cranford, Kettering district.

Charles M 45 Cranford Nths Blacksmith
Elizabeth F 43 Rockingham Nths
Elizabeth Newman mother F 76 widow
nephew John Lewin M 22, Brixhem Devon.

I also have the grave memorial inscription at Cranford. "In loving memory of Charles LYon who departed this life July 12th 1897 aged 62 years. "The weary find eternal rest". Also Elizabeth the beloved wife of the above who died August 6th 1906 aged 67 years."

I have found Charles with his family previous to his marriage, so no need to do that again. He is the fourth child and second son born May 1834 of William George Lyon and Eleanor Butlin. This being William's second marriage.

I would like to find them after their marriage in 1859, and to find any children they may have had.

Thanks so much,

there were other Lyon family living at Burton Latimer; so I guess they were keeping an eye on her.

case closed, thank you
