Samuel Lambert Genealogy
26. SAMUEL LAMBERT was born Jan. 1, 1693. From a deed in 1710,
when be disposed of his share of his father's estate, we find that he was then
called ~,of Salem" and a weaver, but evidently he removed the same month to
Middleton, upon his marriage, and there his children were born. He married May
4, 1710, Mary Squier. (A Mary Squiers was born Mar. 10, 1686, at Newbury, but it
is not known if she was the Mary above.) Nothing has been found about the Squier
family except a few marriages in the Salem vital records.
In the Middleton Minister's Rates, Dec. 24, 1729, appears the name of Samuel
Lambert, and in the Town Book, May 10, 1739, " the house which was Samuel
Lambard's on ye way that comes from the homestead of Samuel & Ebenezer Berry
into Andover road."
In the Essex County Registry there is an unrecorded deed under date of Mar. 6,
1739/40, in which his widow Mary and his children, for £110, deed to Stephen
Wilkins of Middleton, husbandman, several pieces of land in Middleton. Among the
children named in this deed is Samuel Lambert (or, as this family seem to have
spelled the name, " Lambartt "), and no such son appears among those born in
Middleton, while Sarah, the youngest child recorded, does not appear. It may be
that the Sarah of the vital records should really be Samuel, as it seems
unlikely that there would be an error in an original deed.
Samuel was, as is shown by the above deed, dead in 1739/40, but the date is not
found in the Middleton records.
