Joseph Lamb b 1690 Braintree, Suffolk Co., MA d 1749 Somerset Co., NJ, resided in MA, CT, NY, and NJ. He married first to Patience Horton and second to Sarah Chester. Joseph’s 1749 will (see below) names, among others, a daughter Patience Beidle (actual surname spelling may vary).

Many researchers have erroneously listed Mary was the wife of Joseph Lamb 1690-1749 and claim that they were parents of Patience Lamb born in NC who married Matthew Carter. Researchers show that Matthew and Patience Carter had children born before and/or after 1749. That Patience Carter could not have been a daughter of Joseph Lamb who in 1749 had a daughter, Patience Beidle.

1749, Jul. 8. Joseph Lamb of Somerset Co., clergyman: will of. Wife, Sarah, "all that land that I had with her at marage situate in Glossenbery and Wethersfield in Conectecot Govermt in New England."

Joseph’s son, John David Lamb 1729-1784, was of Westfield, NJ. Seek to further identify the daughters named in Joseph Lamb’s will.
