Looks like there was a court case in 1829 over the distribution of the estate:

Thanks yet again! Things I wouldn't find. This was just a twig on a small branch but it's becoming so interesting!

David's marriage in 1832

The widowed Elizabeth remarried in October 1841 to Thomas Wilson so David must have died before then.

Just looking into the Malton connection: there is a baptism for John Lambert at Malton on 23 September 1775, son of David Lambert, attorney.

The solicitor David Lambert died at Malton on 15 February 1833 aged 91 ("the last of the family of the Lamberts  resident at Malton" per the Yorkshire Gazette, 23 February 1833).

The plot thickens! David Lambert, Attorney, appears in many of the UK directories. Confirmed practicing in Market Place, Malton. There are numerous records on the Apprentices' indentures registers but interesting is that 1787 Articles of Clerkship, entry 101...

David Lambert younger of New Malton in the County of York - David Lambert the elder of New Malton aforesaid.

Perhaps a brother but that's something that I can follow as and when.

John Lambert is my focus! Marries in Verdun, has three children, returns to England 1814 as a Lieutenant. Promoted on return? then appears on muster for Lake Huron Q4 1816.

This really is a history lesson  ::)
