You can get a copy of the Longfellow poem on Lamberton at http://lhnet.simplenet.com/lamb/ship.htm
Did you know he was a leading man in New Haven who was accused of having joined in a plot with the local Indians to cut off trade with the Swedes and the Dutch? The English, Dutch and Swedes were in a territorial dispute and Lamberton went to trade at the Deleware River. He was arrested for treason and the Dutch and Swedes tried to get Lamberton's men to speak against him, but they wouldn't so they let him go for lack of proof. This info. is in many books on the History of New Haven Colony.
I too am a descendant of Elizabeth Trowbridge and Peter Mallory through their son Zaccheus. The earliest Trowbridge I have is Thomas Trowbridge who married Joan Hutchins. How do the trowbridges go back to Hugh the Carpet?
