Me, too. I found him listed in The New England Historical and Genealogical Register of 1914, Volume LXVIII. It refers to his marraige to Margaret Lewen on 6 Jan 1628/29 and says he is 'of St Mary's Whitechapel', which is in London. It then goes on to say "some account is given of him and of his family in The Converse Family, 1905, vol. 2, pg 681" I haven't been able to get hold of that book.

Did you know that Henry Wadsworth Longfellow wrote a poem about the ship that Capt. Lamberton was lost on? It's called The Phantom Ship. Cotton Mather wrote the story in his book Magnalia Christi Americana, but I haven't been able to find a copy of that.

Jennifer, have you followed up the Trowbridge side? I have lots on information on them.
