site author Don Just, Melbourne, Australia
First part includes substance of manuscript passed down by site author's maternal grandmother Janet Gladys De Castro nee Lyne 1897-1982 of Melbourne, Australia said "from a manuscript Pedigree in my Possession, much relating to collateral branches of the family has been omitted. RNL 1922" and "copy made by Ernest W. Lyne". RNL was Robert Nunez Lyne 1864-1961; his brother Ernest Wilberforce Lyne 1866-1948 was father of Janet. More information and on-site linked pictures gathered by site author are here added.
Family is sometimes described as Lyne family of Liskeard after Cornwall place of old association.
The correctness of the manuscript account of link from Liskeard back to Ringwood is doubtful.
The main Australian branches of Lyne family of Liskeard commenced on migration to Victoria of (1) 1880's brothers Charles, Edward (later Western Australia) and Ernest Lyne and (2) 1868 second cousin Frederick Lewis Lyne.
There are other Lyne families of England and elsewhere of unknown, if any, relationship to the family of Liskeard; for most in Australia and New Zealand, details are provided.
Later parts of this site are on Cotton family of Ernest Lyne's mother; also on Coulter and Torrance families connected by marriage of Ernest Lyne to Mary Torrance.

[Jenifer Roberts Glass: The Strange History of the Lyne Stephens Fortune (2003) is a brilliantly told history on this part of the Lyne family c1750-1908; mention by Charles RW Lyne. It explains that Jane nee Stephens, grandmother of Charles Lyne 1764-1851, had link with Portugal going back at least to her brother John Stephens 1690-1767, merchant in Lisbon. Charles Lyne went there 1778 to work for merchant Lewis Stephens 1744-95, son of another of his grandmother's brothers, and remained until 1803. In 1826, John James Stephens, a brother of Lewis Stephens, died leaving a fortune to Charles from a profitable glass factory in Portugal earlier built up by another brother, William Stephens 1731-1803. Charles changed his family name to Lyne Stephens. On his death 1851, his fortune passed to son Stephens Lyne Stephens who died 1860, his fortune passing as to income to widow Yolande, after her death residue to be for such issue of his four uncles as living at his decease share and share alike. Yolande Lyne Stephens funded solely construction of Church of Our Lady and the English Martyrs, Cambridge, completed 1890. She died 1894; by 1908 distribution of residue amongst 93 beneficiaries was finalised by Chancery. See further especially on Yolande, Jenifer Roberts The Beauty of her Age: A Tale of Sex, Scandal and Money in Victorian England (2016)].
