Theophilus Lyons

???? - 1797


Death of Theophilus Lyons Esq. of St Mary's at Spanish Town reported in the Columbian Magazine December 1797. R.R. Madden in a confusing account shows 'Dr Lyons' as his great-uncle owning Marley and then it passing to Dr Lyons' brother Theodosius [sic] Lyons, who died at Spanish Town and to whom Madden referred as 'my uncle'; he also mentioned a maternal uncle dying in Jamaica, having overseen Marley [this uncle is identified as Garrett Forde by Karst de Jong], and the property passing to Madden's cousin Robert Lyons.
