This page was constructed by Andrew (Andy) Lambert of
Fareham nr. Portsmouth, England I am lucky in being able to trace my branch of the family's history, back
to around the year 1,000. I was born in London during the forties, grew up
around the Wandsworth / Putney area with my brother Geoff, then
worked and lived around the Kingston / Weybridge area, until moving to
the Portsmouth area. I am very much a beginner when it comes to genealogy, however
I have been able (with lots of help) to ascertain a lot about my families past
and have traced my line back to 900 AD

A Brief History for people with text only browsers.
These pages were constructed by me
primarily to assist other Lamberts, who are researching their branch of the
family's history. I am lucky in being able to trace my branch of the family's
history, back to around the year 900. Of course there are many large gaps
which I am still filling in.
My father was born at Barking in the 'East End' of London where
Granddad had settled after coming across from Ireland. Granddad arrived
with little money, but worked until he had enough to bring his seven sisters
Click here for a family picture Granddad is on the left and my father is
on the right. Some of Granddad's seven sisters can also be seen.
Granddad's great granddad had owned
- Athenry Galway. Owning much land and many magnificent homes, the
family had prospered since it had arrived in Ireland from Yorkshire some five
generations before. The Yorkshire home had been the village of
Calton nr. Skipton.
It was here that the most famous Lambert -
General John Lambert (of Calton House) was born, He was at times:- An
escapee from the Tower of London. The man who introduced the
Guernsey Lily to the island of Guernsey. One of Oliver Cromwell's
best Major Generals, and for a short while, the second most powerful man in
Before these, it seems my ancestors had crossed to England with William
The Conquer, fighting at the battle of Hastings. Prior to this, they had
been land owners in Normandy having originally arrived there as Viking
Raiders around 940 AD. The last Lambert I can get back to is Lambert
the 1st Count of Mons. It is rumoured that the Lambert line can be traced
all the way to Mark Anthony via Boadicea, Old King Cole and a
whole load of Kings of Europe... but that might take some proving.
Of course this is the Lambert Male Line, we have a habit of marrying
well. On the female side for example: My 22nd Granddad was King Edward the
1st, Plantagenet King of England. which of course means my 23rd Granddad
is King Philippe of France (but lets not talk about that!).
have compiled a database of the Lamberts I have details on, they are mostly
Irish and English with a little French. You may wish to
search it yourself and so I have loaded a copy on to the website.
Important:- please read the warning notice on the
first page of the dbase, if you are going to use it.
It is my hope to keep adding to the file so if you have any information on
the ENGLISH / IRISH Lambert families please send it to me. If it is in file
format, then Gedcom, would be nice. I use Generations 8 from Sierra On-Line.
It is that program that produced and maintains the searchable dbase mentioned
above. Sadly it is no longer sold by Sierra
The Lambert Family Crest shown left, was sent to me by Jacqueline Lambert
of Palmetto USA. Her aunt Rosa had the crest painted around 1960 by an artist
in Hendersonville, North Caroline. It can truly said to be "the" Lambert
family coat of arms, as it is an amalgamation of many designs used by
different branches of the family.
You can see elements of the Calton, Essex, Galway, London and Wessex lines.
If any heraldry experts reading this feel they could help further, I would be
pleased to hear from them.
First a warning
As was said before, these pages were constructed primarily to assist other
Lamberts, who are researching their branch of the family's history. The
accuracy of that information is of course always questionable, as much has
come from sources that cannot always be validated. Therefore please accept it
for what it is and use it for a bases of your own research.
