  1. 2.  LYON, Abiel was born on 25 Apr 1680 in Roxbury, Suffolk County, Massachusetts (son of LYON, Samuel and Deliverance); died on 9 Oct 1756 in Pomfret, Windham County, Connecticut.

    Notes:

    There is no mention of Abiel Lyon in James Savages' Genealogical Dictionary of New England.

    According to his will he has a daughter Judith Farrington (she married ,in Boston, her cousin Joseph Farrington, her mother’s brother’s son, 19 Mar 1738 both of Dedham), and his wife is Sarah (3rd wife?) (Mrs. Susannah Craft(2nd wife)). Married Susannah 26 Apr 1748 in Pomfret.

    ————
    When Abiel Lyon brought his bride, Judith Farrington, into the wilderness, settlers were few. Families had taken homesteads on the Woodstock Line, and the east side of the Purchase. The Goodells had settled on Easter Hill, Abington. The Lyon's nearest neighbor may have been Benjamin Sitton.
    Abiel Lyon was one of the founders of the Abington Society, giving the first pulpit, costing one hundred dollars. He had ten children, and several of his sons were soldiers in the Indian Wars, Spanish American Wars, and the Revolution. His youngest son, Jonathan, born after his death [<—incorrect!], was educated at Dartmouth by Rev. Walter Lyon. He was in Congress with Daniel Webster.
    When Abiel Lyon sold his homestead to Daniel Trowbridge he built a house nearer his mill, now the property of John Kelly. Originally this house had a great stone chimney in the center, and a long, low lean-to in the back.

    page 9
    Abel Lyon built the first sawmill in Pomfret in 1707 on the Mashamoquet, a short distance below where the hightway crosses the brook on Rt. 97, bringing tools into the wilderness on his back. Pomfret soon built a road to his mill.
    May, 1749, Pomfret was split into two sections, one called Abington. It was this part of Pomfret that began to form a new church, with the blessing of the old church & pastor, and for which Abiel gave the first pulpit. In 1753, the new church had been built, and pews were okayed to be built. On the list of people to build pews were: John Shaw, James Ingalls, Edward Paine, John Ingalls, William Osgood, John Sharpe, Daniel Trowbridge, Captain Craft, Captain Goodell, Nathaniel Stowell, Richard Peabody, Jonathan Dana, Edward Goodell & Ebenezer Goodell.

Generation: 4

  1. 8.  LYON, William was born on 23 Dec 1620 in Heston, Middlesex, England; died in May 1692 in Roxbury, Suffolk County, Massachusetts; was buried on 21 May 1692 in Roxbury, Suffolk County, Massachusetts.

    Notes:

    Came to America in 1635 at age 14 on Hopewell, probably under charge of Isaac Heath. Freeman 1666.

    William lived in Heston, England. Both William and Anne probably died before 1635 when their son. William, aged 14, sailed in the ship "Hopewell" with a different family.

    He married Sarah Ruggles who was born in 1620......... William of Heston, England and Roxbury, Mass., founder of Lyon Family in America; fourth child of William Lyon, was baptized 12/23/1620. From "Lyon Memorial" - Massachusetts Families, 1905.

    William Lyon of Roxbury: In list of passengers that embarked for America in the Hopewell 9/11/1635 we find name of William Lyon, age 14.
    "These underwritten names are to be transported to New England embarked on the Hopewell, Tho. Babb mmp. Cert. from the ministers and justices of their confirmitie in Religion to or Church of England; and yt they are no subsedy Men. they have taken ye oaths of Alleg: & suprem." (sic) The name is further registered in Rolls Office, Chancery Lane, London, as having sailed for New England 9/11/1635 and settled in Roxbury, Mass. William Lyon, perhaps an orphan, is said to have been placed in care of Isaac Heath. There appears to be no reason to question the conclusion reached by Albert Welles in "American Family Antiquity" that this was the William Lyon who was baptized at Heston, now part of the city of London, 12/23/1629, the youngest son of William and Anne (Carter) Lyon of Heston.

    "Pioneers of Massachusetts" states that William and wife, Sarah, were in 1647 members of Roxbury Church, MA. In Roxbury, Mass. land records the name William Lyon appears as LION, LYON and LYONS, and we find all three forms also in the records of the Eliot Church. He seems to have written it himself sometimes LION. William Lyon in 1645 became a member of the Ancient and Honorable Artillery Co. of Roxbury. He received in 1648 a grant of six acres of land in Roxbury, and in 1652 of another three acres "upon the common, by John Polly's." His name also appears as a grantee in deeds of land in Roxbury in 1651, 1658 and 1661, and as grantor in 1658 and 1672. When the new settlement at New Roxbury, now Woodstock, VERMONT, was determined upon in 1651 he was one of the "goers," and he was assigned a lot there, although he did not actually occupy it.
    The Lyon homestead in Roxbury was on what is now Bellevue Avenue, formerly called Lyon Street. It was on the east side of the street, southwest of Atwood Street. William Lyon was admitted to full communion in John Eliot's Church in 1655 and became a freeman in 1666. He, with John Bowles, et al, signed Roxbury petition 10/25/1664 to the General Court, praying it to "stand fast in our present libertys." He lived to age of 72 years. He was buried 5/21/1692 probably in West Roxbury cemetery, although there is no stone there to mark the spot. His widow died about 8/4/1694. (Roxbury town records.)

    Deed dated 6/25/1651: "For valuable consideration in hand received" Capt. Hugh Pritchard, late of Roxbury in New England, deeds unto James Morgan, Griffin Craft, Edward Bridge, WILLIAM LYON, John Mayes, Robert Seaber and JOHN RUGGLES and Isaac Johnson of Roxbury.

    Deed dated 9/1/1661: In consideration of a valuable piece to us in hand payed (sic) we, WILLIAM LYON, John Mayes, Jr and John Bridge and John Waton, Jr. deed to William Gary 15 acres of land in Roxbury.
    Deed dated 6/15/1661.......we, Richard Witherington and Eliz., wife, his wife of Dorchester and John Aldiss and wife, Sarah and Jon Smith and Lidde his wife both of Dedham deed to Willm Gary and WILLIAM LYON and John Mayes Jr and John Bridge and Jno Watson Jr all of them from Roxbury, in general all the housing and lands that Deacon Phillip Elliott was possessed of in Roxbury when he died, including a dwelling house, barn and cow houses with two acres of land in Roxbury; 96 acres of land in the second alottment in Roxbury; 15 acres of land as it lies in Roxbury abutting upon the highway leading to the great pond; 6 acres of salt marsh at gravelly point in Roxbury; 3 acres & *
    of fresh meadow as it lies in aremash in Roxbury; 12 acres of land in Roxbury upon the Pond Plain and 9 acres in Roxburing being commonly called the Ox Pasture.

    The following document is interesting for the light it throws on conditions of life in New England in the early days:
    WILLIAM LYON and Richard Sutton, both of Roxbury (for & in consideration for 2 oxen sold & delivered to them) did grant unto Thomas Dudley, governor, 6 acres of land in Roxbury, lying southwards of the great lots, the land of George Grand on the east, the commons on the west and on the south. Also five acres near the great pond, lately purchased of Samuel Ruggles with 5 acares he doth covent. sufficiently to fence before the '1(3) next, both those parcels of land being the possession of said WILLIAM and Richard; doth grant 15 acres purchased with Wm. Parke, with the appurtenances; provided that if the said William and Richard do bind themselves in the sum of 14 pounds that they will not forfeit the mortgage.

    JANES HISTORY
    Zero proof of the following assumption - I love the part where the generations between William & Geoffry De Janes are unknown…so of course they must be related.
    [The Family of De Jeanne, Jeanes, Janes is of Norman or French Origin. Guido De Janes, as a General of the French Confederation, accompanied Henry II, who was the lawful heir to the English throne, (instead of his mother, Matilda, Empress of Germany, daughter of Henry I) when he went over to assume the sovereignty (1154). Henry II (norman baron) having established himself firmly as the English sovereign, the first of the Plantagenets, conferred upon Guido De Janes the manor of Kirtland or Kirkling in the County of Cambridgeshire, for his valor as a general in his service, and as an acknowledgment of military prowess. The particulars of his family are unknown. Geoffrey de Janes (Guido's grandson) (about 1200/1204) took up arms with Baldwin, Count of Flanders, in his successful effort to obtain Jerusalem, and was one who contributed to make Baldwin King of Jerusalem. Geoffry, after his return to England, made with his son, Guy or Guido, 3 pilgrimages to the Holy Land. Hence the escallop shells in the coat of arms which commemorate those events. The generations between Geoffry De Janes and William, our immigrant ancestor, are not yet known.]

    This part I will believe:
    William was born in Essex, England during the reign of James I, when the Puritans were suffering fearful persecution from powerful and bitter foes. Henry Janes, (a brother of our ancestor, William), graduated from Oxford University, and was greatly esteemed for his many good qualities of mind and heart. His occupation was Professor and lecturer in Theology and Divinity at Oxford University.

    Abel Janes who was born in Chelmsford, Essex in 1585, was married to Hannah Bascom and were known to have had one child, William Janes (1610 – 1690). William married twice, first to Mary Hewes and 2nd to Hannah Bascom, (a cousin).

    1. William Janes* born 1610, died 20 Sept 1690 Northampton, Hampshire Co, Massachusetts. William married Mary [Unknown] in England. She died 4 Aug 1662 Northampton, Massachusetts. William married again on 20 Nov 1662 to Hannah Bascom Broughton widow of John Broughton.

    William emigrated in 1637 from Essex, England. He came with the John Davenport's colony on the ship Hector. He arrived in Boston, MA 3 June 1637 with his wife, Mary, and young son Joseph. He then went to New Haven, Connecticut settlement, where he lived for 18 years. Then he moved to Northampton, Massachusetts where he spent the most active period of his life. His occupation was schoolmaster. He was a teacher of the rudiments of education, and a teacher of the doctrines of the Bible. The records show that this new colony paid him the sum of 10 pounds per annum, and the more prosperous and wealthy parents made a further compensation personally. His homestead he built on his allotment of land which he received Oct 1639, on the corner of Chapel and Church Streets in New Haven Connecticut. In the New Haven records William Janes is named as signing the plantation covenant which shows his autograph. In 1643 he makes returns of 5 persons in his family and has an estate of 150 pounds. In 1648 he is a member of the general court. In the year 1656 he went higher up the Connecticut Valley to a place called Northampton. Here was established a religious colony. William is shown in Northampton's town records to have been an inhabitant 25 June 1657. January 1658 he was recorder of lands which he did for many years. The town voted him 10 pounds town stock for teaching, 4 pence per week for teaching the primer, and six pence per week for other teachings. He was a teaching elder, and in the absence of the minister, conducted the religious services of the Sabbath. William is buried in a lovely cemetery in Northampton.

    He was Deputy of the General Court of New Haven, Connecticut, 1648; Deputy General Court "Janes G. Frederick Janes Assisted in William emigrated in 1637 from Essex, England. He came to Davenport's colony on the ship Hector. He arrived in Boston 1637 with his wife, Mary and young son Joseph. He then went to New Haven, Connecticut settlement, where he lived for 18 years. Then he moved and at that this new colony prospered. His homestead he built in 1639, on the corner of Chapel and Church. The New Haven records have William Janes signing the plantation covenant which shows his autograph in 1643 he of 150 pounds. In the year 1656 he went higher Northampton. Here was established a religion Northampton's town records to have been and January 1658 he was recorder of lands, which he did town voted him 10 pounds town stock for teaching, 4 pen teaching the primer, and 6 pence per week for other teachings teaching elder, and in the absence of the minister, conducted the religious services of the Sabbath.
