The info on George Lamberton is interesting - my husband is a descendant
via their daughter, Elizabeth, who married William Trowbridge in a second
marriage. Supposedly, her first spouse was Daniel Selivant. She married
Trowbridge in Milford, CT, 09MAR1656 - they had ten children.
The Lamberton info always is fun to read.

First of all, I would love to have a copy of the letter written to Cotton
Mather- you will
note below in Savage's article his reference to Cotton Mather and the size
of the ship-
Following is what I have on Capt George and Margaret Lewen. Does anyone
if there were any male heirs- he had one son who lived to adulthood but I
believe died of
smallpox and I don't have any record of a marraige for him- there were 6
were involved in the division of the property.
>From Genealogical Dictionary of the First Settlers of New England, p.48 ( by
"LAMBERTON, GEORGE, New Haven 1641, merchant from London, was one of the
inhabitants employed in 1643 in projecting a settlement at Delaware, but
resisted by the
Swedes, who vindicated their right; by wife Margaret had Mercy, bapt. 17
Desire, 13 Mar. 1642; and Obedience, 9 Feb. 1645; he went in Jan. 1646 for
in the ship of 80 tons, cut out of the ice 3 miles, with Mr. Gregson, the
dep.-Gov. Goodyear, and others, which were never heard of again. Johnson,
in his W. W. P. and Winth. II. 266, well relate the matter; but Mather,
Magn. I. 25,
has proved the great superiority resulting from tradition of a story
told 50 yrs.
after to the contemporary narrative. By taking the dimensions of the
in the air, Mather's worthy correspondence could make her about 150 tons.
His readers admit, that benefits of similar measure the ecclesiastical
gained in his everyday life. Capt Lamberton left widow who m. dep.-Gov.
Goodyear, and, perhaps, daughters Eliz. who. m. 1654, Daniel Sillevant;
m. 1659, Thomas Cooper, jr. of Springfield; Hannah m. Samuel Wells; and,
Col. John Allyn; and Obedience, who. m. 1676, Samuel Smith. "
I have an article on Capt George and his family from "Genealogies of Early
which has been put on a CD by Broderbund. Actually, it is a collection of
and articles from the NEHG Register.
If anyone wants a copy - it is about 3 pages long and has to be typed in-
b/c it won't transfer from the CD to text form or I haven't learned how to
do it -
It starts off stating that he was one of the merchant gentlemen who founded
Colony of New Haven, etc. After his death, his wife, Margaret Lewen married
Deputy-Gov. Stephen Goodyear a year later
Probably you already know that both lost their spouses on board the ship
b/c Mrs, Goodyear ( the first) was on board the ship with Capt. Lamberton.
There is additional info on Margaret Lewen in another article of the NEGH
I just received my early Xmas present- the entire Register on CDs- so I can
up the info on Margaret Lewen- it is Vol. 61, p. 189 if anyone has access to
Register- otherwise, I will be glad to look it up and type or send it by
I am sure you all know Longfellow's poem- "The Phantom Ship" - if anyone
copy of it, I can email it to directly.
I am descended from him and his wife, Margaret through their daughter Mercy
who married Shubael Painter.
I have no info on the Lamberton family in England- maybe someone else does-
nor how he got his license ( captain or pilots) - maybe he didn't and that
The descendant thru the Trowbridge line would probably be interested in the
NEGH article b/c it is a court document concerning the division of property
between the daughters and their husbands- it is from the New Haven Land
which starts off with "I Shuball Painter....have sold unto my brother-in-law
Trowbridge all my rights etc. etc." The division of property between the 6
was quite complicated and is in a separate article in the Register.
I have for Margaret Lewen's parents, Henry Lewen and Tancke Sage- ( but that
not been documented as yet) I also have her as being born in London bef.
and married at St. Marys Whitechapel, London on 06 Jan 1629 to George
In his records, I have him as being baptized in the same church.
You may all have this info already , however, the article on Margaret Lewen
have more relevant info- on her background in England
I would think that there must be some more info on the Lambertons in
Just joined the list having just learned about it.. Am looking for any
and all information on the above and his wife wife Margaret Lewen..I am
especially interested in both their ancestors..Capt George is a direct
for me and have his line down through the Trowbridge line to the
Treadwell line which I am a part of..Any and all help will be
appreciated. Thanks Charlie Wall

Hi Howard and All
Last evening I received a copy of Cotton Mather's,"Magnalia Christi
Americana" from the library. It contains the original letter from James
Pierpont to Cotton Mather concerning the loss of the "Phantom Ship",
captained by George Lamberton. My first reading gives no background
information on Captain Lamberton nor the name of the ship. I will copy
as close as possible this letter, realizing that some of the text
formatting will be lost in transposing to a e- mail format.
Does anyone have more information on Captain Lamberton ? Such as how he
gained his captains papers and why he came to New Haven? I think that he
was born in England.
If anyone wants a e-mail copy of Mr. Pierponts letter please let me
