Lyte Pedigree 1286 AD to 1777 AD
Posted by: Steve Light Date: December 23, 1998 at 23:48:10

I recently examined a rare article printed in 1892 by Sir Henry Maxwell-Lyte, the late deputy director of the British Museum. I'd heard about the article (100 pages) for years and had only seen highlights. There are to original genealogies in England encompassing hundreds of Lytes including dozens who appear in the Virginia records all in order. I hope to publish this material ASAP. Examples:
--John Lyte bapt 1604, indigo merchant of London.
--Richard Lyte of Barbados, major paul lyte's nephew.
--a new (to me) John Lyte (born 1637) merchant of Bristol and Major Paul Lyte's brother.
--the location of never before published first second and third cousins of the main Lytescary line.
--dozens of drawings
--photos of the manor house at LyteScary
--poetry and correspondence with the royals.
--the real story of how the manor house left the Lyte family 200 years ago.

Any ideas on how to share this rare coyrighted material? One of the pedigrees is over 13 feet long.
