A search on “Ancestry” has also been done for Hannah Lyons,in the hope of throwing light on the Hannah, Patrick & John Lyons who are living in the same house as Stephen & Catherine Lyons and their then 3 children in the 1861 Census, but none seem to tie in. All are north of the Thames.

This suggests Hannah and her sons came to England after 1851.

Searches have also been done on James, Michael, Maurice, Mary, Jeremiah, Catherine, John, Elizabeth, Thomas & Edmund Lyons, to no avail.
