Please for give me if I sent this to you twice.
I did not want to miss any one.
The passenger list for the Ship Lyon 1630-1631
Information about the ship LYON in an
article written about Roger Williams and published in the
Post vol 1:5 (May 1964) pp.3-9. Unfortunately it doesn't
Sacketts but then again it doesn't list everybody just
about 12 of them
in the article)
This was on page 3:
In December of 1630, a small, one hundred ton boat,
(which became famous in the history of the early
Massachusetts) sailed from Bristol, England with about
and two hundred tons of goods. Her Master, Captain William
for his skillful seamanship, was at her helm.
Among the passengers was the reverend Roger Williams
and his wife
Mary; John Throckmorton with his wife Rebecca and children,
Patience; John Perkins with his wife Judith and children
Mary, Thomas and Jacob; Edmond Onge and his wife Frances
Simon and Jonah; and William Parke.
On February 5, 1631, the little boat docked in Boston
for her Master
was sympathetic to the policy of the Puritan leaders.
Here is the list of passengers on the Lyon which are
recorded in the book

The Sacketts of America, page 12, lists the following

If I combine all tree list I have 24 of the 26 passengers
from the Ship Lyon.
1.reverend Roger Williams
22.Child Simon Jr.
The ship the Lyon brought my husbands first g-father and
and not married at the time they came Elizabeth (Fones)
If I add the information from the e-mail letter above I get
26 passengers on the ship Lyon coming to America in 1630 -
26.Elizabeth (Fones) Winthrop
Two other possibilities are relatives of Lorretta A. Curry
that may have come over on the Ship Lyon in the
1630's....They were Obadiah Holmes and
John Wilson.. Were they on the ship with Roger Williams?
