Joan Lyon (b. ca. 1510) clearly cannot be daughter of John Lyon (born 1544; apparently of royal descent through the Keith family) (Lyon-226) and Elizabeth Abernathy.  Does anybody know who Joan Lyon's real parents are?

There was a thread only a month ago, but nothing happened as a result.

Of course Lyon was her married name.  She was Joan (Unknown) Lyon and the trail is stone cold.

Her husband wasn't the John Lyon who founded Harrow School (the two John Lyons, of similar age, were 1st cousins 1x removed), and he wasn't the son of Lord Glamis.

Notice Emma Hedde has a husband with his own descent from Edward I, but he isn't the John Lyon who's shown as the father of her child.  Evidently the descendants would rather be Scottish.

The sole source was obscured: I updated the code and re-read it. It's kind of obtuse, unless I have misunderstood it (also, the link takes you to the adjacent page, not the one that's needed).

I went ahead and disconnected the parents that have been attributed without source.

If another pair of eyes could read the source to see if my take fairly represents what is known, I'd appreciate it.
