Lye family - Somerset & London
Posted by: Iain Challis Date: December 06, 1999 at 11:19:33
  of 95

Seeking descendants of the following :

My great grandfather, Robert LYE of Martock, Somerset, UK moved to Shoreditch, London where he became a cabinet maker and married (presumably) Hannah COXALL of Haslingfield, Cambridgeshire. (As yet I've been unable to trace their marriage).

Robert and Hannah had at least 6 children:
1) Thomas William COXALL Lye b 1868 in Shoreditch, East London
2) Esther Matilda LYE b 1871 in Shoreditch married Frederick Josiah CHALLIS
3) Sarah Elizabeth LYE b 1873 in Bethnal Green
4) Henry Robert LYE b 1876 married Margaret WICKS and had 5 children, Henry
Thomas b 1903, Margaret Lucy b 1904, Thomas Coxall b 1906, George S b 1915,
Madeline V b 1919
5) Lucy Emily LYE b 1879 in Bow, E London
6) Alice Georgina LYE b 1883.

I know that Sarah Elizabeth, Lucy Emily and Alice Georgina all married, but
have not yet traced their spouses or offspring

I am trying to trace descendants of the above families, and would be very pleased to hear from anyone else researching the Lyes
