This Thomas Lyon "built the house near Byram Bridge, which is still standing, having been occupied until the present time by his descendants." In 1711, Thomas Lyon was called into short-term military service on the Canadian border as a member of Col. Robert Hunter's Company of Fusiliers. This Thomas Lyon died in April, 1739, with his will proven May 1 of that year. His wife, Abigail (Ogden) Lyon, lived until 1760; ownership of the house went to the next generation in their family.

Thomas Lyon House built c.1690-95 The Thomas Lyon House, at 1 Byram Road, is considered to be the oldest unaltered structure in Greenwich, Connecticut. The house, a saltbox, is on the National Register of Historic Places and is in the process of being restored by the local historic commission. Its heritage dates back to the family of Thomas Lyon (1621-1690), one of the earliest settlers of Fairfield County, and particularly his son, Thomas Lyon (1673-1739) who, with his wife Abigail and their children, were the initial occupants. The house stayed in the family line of Abigail and Thomas Lyon in to the 20th Century.
