About Mary Lyon


Elizabeth Bateman, wife of Henry Lyon, died before Henry, and he married for a 2nd time, Mary Camfield "about 1689-90." Mary was probably the daughter of one of the early settlers in Newark. At the time of Henry's will, his two daughters, Mary and Dorcas were minor children with his 2nd wife, Mary. This wife may have been a Newark woman which might explain why the family moved back to Newark where they celebrated the 50th anniversary of Henry's arriving in the New World. Henry had retained his privileges at the Newark church even though he had moved to Elizabethtown.
