Lyon Clergy

This listing contains details of men and women with the surname Lyon which I have come across while searching for details of the many in my tree who have been involved in one way or another with the clergy.    I have not yet had the opportunity to reconfigure it properly for use on the Internet but I hope that it will still be reasonably readable as it stands.     Explanations of the various references and abbreviations are at the end of the table.   Please do follow the references given for additional information.     Please note that all date references are in European format, ie dd/mm/yyyy.    I would be very happy to add details of any other instances known by others.     You can E-Mail me on donjgrant@aol.com
