Research Notes

This profile had been connected to John Lyon, 4th Lord Glamis and Elizabeth (Berkeley) Burdett; however, there is no evidence to suggest that these links were correct, so they links have been removed.

John Lyon, 4th Lord Glamis, did have a son named John; however this John, the 6th Lord Glamis (died 1528) was married to Janet Douglas (died 1537). So these Johns are different people; the John who was born 1470 and was married to Emma Hedde, is a completely different person.[1]

The death date of 1528 has been removed, as this death date belongs to John Lyon, 6th Lord Glamis.

There is a private family tree that posits that John Lyon, born 1470, was the son of a Henry Lyon, born about 1440 in Ryslippe, Middlesex, England, and his wife Elizabeth Dennis Berkeley, born about 1442 in England. No sources or documentation have been provided on the family tree; however, please see the Lyon Memorial below.[2]

The Lyon Memorial, which is cited below, actually supports the parentage of John, born 1470, as being Henry Lyon and Elizabeth Dennis Berkeley. More information can be found by clicking on the link for page 12 of this source.[3]
