In that portion of of Ancestryuk.com web page titled "Rising of the North" states, /"In 1543, Nicholas Lamberton had entailed Owton manor on his
three sons, Robert, George, and Clement, successively."
/This would infer that the three sons were born at some date prior to
1543. We know that son George was mentioned in the records of the New
Haven Colony during the 1640's and lost at sea in 1646.
Based on the dates of 1543 or earlier and Georges death in 1646 this
would make him 103 years old.
This cannot be.
If it is any help, although without dates the linage given in "The
Visitation of Cambridge 1575 and 1619" (page 127) seems much more plausible.
There is one or more trees within additional "visitations that seem to hint that perhaps data for George's generation is missing. His marriage to Margaret Lewen is available from English records but birth records for both are missing. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Is this the George Lamberton who built the ill-fated "Phantom Ship" memorialized by Longfellow? George was apparently lost aboard this ship and my ancestor Nathaniel Turner was another passenger. This was in 1646.
Would this incident partly explain why the information you are looking for, might be difficult to find? Did his widow move? Perhaps court/probate records might turn up some of this information. Some of these records are published.
Thanks for the reply. Several years ago when i started my project I made a diligent search for associated families such as Lamberton, Lambton, Lambert, Painter,Allen, etc. According to ancestry Eric Lamberton, Capt. George Lamberton's widow married Baron Hilton. This is also recorded in at least one of the "Visitations"
To the best of my knowledge there is no verifiable record of on what ship George arrived in North America or even how he obtained the title of captain. From early documents or records it appears that George was financially well off.
As I mentioned in my original post it seems that there is a generation missing in the associated "visitations" or my assumptions are totally wrong.
