Lyons Family in Norfolk
« on: Saturday 16 March 19 00:45 GMT (UK) »
I am looking for info on the families William Lyons born Erpingham Parish, Aylsham District, Norfolk, England  12 Mar 1813 and his wife Elizabeth Doughty also born in Erpingham Parish 24 Jan 1812  I think they were married 1832 and they had 4 of their children, John, Phebe, Susan and Mary born in Norfolk.  They immigrated to Canada sometime between Mary's birth in 1838 and their next child Elizabeth born in Canada in 1841.
Thank you
Anngar

There are some decent free online resources for Norfolk.

Have you tried:
Familysearch https://www.familysearch.org/search/collection/1416598
Free reg https://www.freereg.org.uk/
Norfolk transcription archive http://doun.org/transcriptions/

There is also NORS  https://www.norfolkonlinerecordsearch.co.uk/ (I canít vouch for them)

... and I think there are some Nfk records on pay sites such as Ancestry and FindMyPast

They seem to have used variant surnames in the records.

Mary was registered as Mary LYNES mmn Doughty, Jun qtr 1838 Erpingham.  This was also the spelling of the surname on her baptism at Aylmerton on 13 May 1838, giving her birthdate as 13 April 1838.

The whole family is LINES in the 1851 Canadian census at Etobicoke, York County, Upper Canada (Ontario).
Ayr: Barnes, Wylie
Caithness: MacGregor
Essex: Eldred (Pebmarsh)
Gloucs: Timbrell (Winchcomb)

Suffolk: Markham (Framlingham)
Surrey: Gosling (Richmond)

Thank you for your replies and info. I didn't have the marriage date but had the info on the births of William, Elizabeth, and their four children John, Phoebe,Susan and Mary from Family Search and also the 1851 Ontario census. I have the Canadian info but what I don't know is the ancestry in England of William and Elizabeth.  Ruskie thank you for the online resources although I don't have a paid membership to ancestry or find my past.  I do sometimes get good clues on ancestry with my unpaid membership
