I haven't read the manuscript you are talking about.  I got my info from the english archives.  John Lyon the Earl was killed in the Jacobite rebellion in 1715 in Angus Scotland. Two of his sons were incarcerated for crimes against the king and bannished to the colonies in 1715 (William and Philip.  No mention of a John but possible).  They arrived in Virginia 1716.   They came over on the ship Elizebeth Ann.  Thanks for the tip, I will review the ebook you are speaking of.  Can never have enough supprtong documentation.
