Audry (Lyon) Giffard

(name also spelled as Adrianna Gifford)

of West Twyford, Middlesex, England

Father: Richard Lyon

Married: William Giffard

Children: Death: 1601

Notes: A monument to Audry can be found on the north wall at the west end of the church in West Twyford (now St Mary's Church, Brentmead Gardens, London, NW10)


Richard Lyon

of Wilsden, Middlesex, England

Birth: About 1533

Father: John Lyon

Children: Notes: Some sources have Richard's father as John Lyon, and link him to the John Lyon (1509 - 1592) who founded Harrow School. This is incorrect because that John Lyon had no children, but it is possible that Richard's father was a contemporaneous John Lyon who was a wealthy London merchant at the time.
