Jonathan Lambert Genealogy
11. JONATHAN LAMBERT was born Dec. 23, 1669.
He was a ship-master in Boston, and married, it would seem, Elizabeth, said to
have been the daughter of George Deane of Salem and his wife Elizabeth, but as
stated above in notes on Ezekiel Lambert, it appears more likely that she was
the daughter of Thomas Deane. Elizabeth Lambert, probably the widow of Jonathan
Lambert, married Dec. 5, 1710, in Boston, John Bucanan.
May 15, 1711, Daniel Bacon, jr., of Salem, shipwright, gave bond for the
guardianship of Daniel Bacon's kinsman, Jonathan Lambert, a minor, upwards of
four years, son of Jonathan Lambert, mariner, of Boston, and Jan. 12, 1718/19,
being then aged 22, Jonathan releases him.
The inventory of Capt. Jonathan Lambert, mariner, was presented Jan. 30, 1710,
at Boston, by Elizabeth, his widow and administratrix, who in an account Oct.
31, 1717, is called Elizabeth Bucanan, late Lambert. Jonathan therefore died
In the Essex Institute Historical Collections, vol. 12, p. 281, it is stated
that probably Jonathan and Benjamin Lambert of Boston were children of Jonathan
and Elizabeth Lambert, though there is contradictory evidence, as among the
heirs of Mrs. Elizabeth Deane in 1706, Elizabeth Lambert's name does not appear;
but her son Jonathan seems to have inherited her portion. Nevertheless, in the
Boston vital records, the births of the two sons are given as the children of
Jonathan and Elizabeth Lambert.
