About Henry Lyon

Married after brief courtship, Mary possibly pregnant with Emma (as was common at that time), Henry died suddenly 2 months after Emma's baptism - cause unknown and possibly a source of gossip(suicide, murder, accident or ill-health?).

Emma later said that her father was from Lancashire, and Kate Williams says in her biography of Emma that the name was common in Skelmersdale and Ormskirk.
