Richard Lyman was baptized at High Ongar, Co.Essex, England on Oct.30,1580, the son of Henry Lyman and Elizabeth (Rande) Lyman. His mother was buried in 1587, and Henry Lyman married Phillis Scott by 1591.

Richard Lyman married Sarah Osborne (d.Jan 1641/2), possibly the daughter of Roger Osborne of Halstead, Co.Kent.

Richard and Sarah had nine children born in England. The family (with five children) immigrated to America in 1631. They arrived in Boston Nov.2,1631 aboard the ship "Lion" with 60 passengers. The trip took 10 weeks.

They settled first in Charlestown, Mass. and in 1635 moved to Hartford, Connecticut along with a group of about 100 people led by Rev.Thomas Hooker.

Children: Phillis Lyman Hills, Richard Lyman, William Lyman, William Lyman, Richard Lyman Jr, Sarah Lyman Bridgman, Anna Lyman, John Lyman, and Robert Lyman.

This is my 10th great-grandfather.He is also known as Richard the "1st".
