Laing Lyons Family History

There are mainly four family stories related here Laing, Nelson, Lyons, Mills.


It is a family history that extends around the globe - England, Scotland, Ireland, Australia, Kenya, New Zealand with a foray or two into Canada and the US and other parts besides. It, of course, includes its share of colorful characters who have played their part, both large and small, in world affairs and the development of nations.

There are many families making a contribution to this tree: Laing, Veal, Lyons, Lawson, Mason, Nelson, Johnson, Wright, Miller, Gillett, Stocker, Roddam, Shipley, Brown, Murrell, Mills, Beresford, Fitzherbert, Hall, Muir, Fenton, Turner, Chilwell, Alpen, Smith, Westergaard, Margaret, Clegg, Porter, Hill, Nankivell, Harris, Perry, Trattles, Garrett, Wilkinson, Spooner, Robins, Heap, Culbertson, Clark, Harper, Mclintock, Caton, Evelyn, Boscawen, Carminow, Scott, Vernon. But really it comes down to a few.

And, like many other Australian, New Zealand, British, UK based families, it roots get lost in history - wars, imperialism, conflicts, take their toll on families and historical records alike. Penetrating back beyond the 1700's is nigh impossible. There are some exceptions.

This remains, and always will be, a work in progress. Enjoy!
