I just saw your message about George John Lye when I was looking for the same family. My husband is descended from William Lye (1760-1818) and Jane Loring, who are also George John's ancestors. They came originally from Somerset, and I'd been wondering why I couldn't find George John in England after the 1911 census. I found him travelling to the USA in 1913 and then in other records for Connecticut. I have information on the Lye family if you're still interested, and a few photos of more recent generations including my husband's great-grandmother Maria Richards (nee Lye). Maria would have been an aunt of George's.
