Abigail Bishop and George Lamberton
Posted by: Beth Sumner Date: March 22, 1999 at 10:56:20

I find myself a bit confused and hope you can help me out. I received an email in response to a query about Abigail Bishop (b.30 Oct 1659, d 24 Oct 1710)m.18 Nov 1686 to James Tallmadge. I was seeking information regarding her ancestors.

I quote the email I received:
"Abigail Bishop was the granddaughter of Captain George Lamberton of the famous
phantom ship. James Bishop, her father, was a distinguished public man,
holding many offices, as Magistrate, Commissioner on the Union of the New
Haven and Connecticut Colonies, Deputy Governor of New Haven 1662-3, and of
Connecticut, 1683-7 "
Can any one please help confirm/refute this claim? From what little I know of George Lamberton, he only had one child, A daughter Hannah, who is no relation to Abigail, that I can see. Perhaps I am missing something?
