Samuel Lambert Genealogy
9. SAMUEL LAMBERT was born Mar. 16, 1664. His house appears in
Salem Commoner's records as standing in 1661 and also in 1702, and in the list
of Proprietors of Common Lands he had one right. Samuel was a mariner and
evidently made a voyage in 1711, for there is record of a draft dated ,London,
October 15, 1709. 20 days sight draft of Samuel Lambert (signed by mark) on
Margaret Lambert, wife of Samuel Lambert in Salem, to John Kitchen for £5:12:6."
The draft was protested Apr. 28, 1711, " as her husband was come home."
*It was probably this Samuel Lambert whose name appears in a list of names of
those summoned to eppear before the Governor as pilots in the expedition to Nova
Scotia, 5 May, 1707, and sent on board the Speedwell for transportation to
Nantasket: SAMUEL LAMBERT-" Good Pylot for ye Coast of Cape Sables alias Nova
Scotia & off ye Cape."-Mass. Province Laws, vol. 8, p. 693.
Mary, the widow of John Warner, as administratrix of Jonathan Prince, for
£35:10, conveyed to Samuel Lambert of Salem a house and land next to the creek,
July 23, 1694, and there he lived and died and was succeeded by his son Jonathan
Lambert, who died possessed of the estate. Administration was granted Aug. 1,
1774, the house and land then valued at £80. The house was taken down in 1789,
according to Rev. William Bentley's Diary.
Samuel married before 1690, Margaret, born Apr. 23, 1671, who died after 1732,
daughter of John and Hannah (Collins) Browne, and John and Mary Collins, for
£14, conveyed to Samuel Lambert of Salem, mariner, about an acre on the main
street, under a mortgage payable in 1717. John Collins of Salem, shoreman, sold
a common right to Samuel Lambert Apr. 27, 1721.
The children of John Browne, including Samuel Lambert and Margaret his wife,
Nov. 22, 1728, conveyed their rights in the estate of their mother Hannah
Browne, alias Culbert (sic, an evident error for Collins), to their brother
Joseph Browne of Salem, for £99.
Samuel died between Jan. 17 and Apr. 3, 1732, the date and probate of his will,
which provided as follows: "I Samuel Lambert of Salem, Shoreman, Weak in Body,
