Lamb
« on: Monday 14 December 09 17:55 GMT (UK) »
Looking for any information on James and Janet Lambs family. In 1871 they lived in Kirkden. I do know that George and James went to South Africa and that David was an officer of the Salvation Army. James is my husbands greatgrandfather. Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you

Hi
I do belive so. I was not sure of mothers maiden name. Both David and James have the middle name of Crichton. I know Jessie married James Robertson and they lived in Detroit, Michigan, David married Mary Clinton and James married Helen/Elenor Rosina Smith.

Thanks

From what I have found David Lamb, born 26 Oct. 1866, was apprenticed to a chemist in Aberdeen, but on Oct.21, 1882 he went to an Army meeting and was converted. He spent the next 55 years in service. According to the funeral program I have his children were Catherine, Meta, Jane, Alexander, David who died in youth and Patrick who was killed in the war. He died Tytherton Lucas, Wiltshire on 7 July, 1951. I found an old pic of him and my husbands father bears an uncanny resemblance.
James Lamb worked for Stores Brothers and went to South Africa to open a store.He died in England in 1903. His children were Rosie born July 24 1893, Janet was born in England around 1893, Chrissie born Jan.7 1896, Nellie (husbands grandmother) May 10 1897, James around 1900. Rosie died of malaria sometime between 1897 and 1903.
Mary  died in 1908.
Do you know anything about a Charles that who had a wife , Martha?
Jessie had 3 children, Ada, James and Jessie. A cousin remembers visiting Ada and Jessie in the 70's and does not think they ever married.

hi Kathey  :)

if jane lamb born 10th june 1869 kirkden is not on the 1871 census then
sadly she may have died the year before
there is an entry on deceased online website for jane lamb died 10th march
1870 , buried 13th march 1870 friockheim cemetery angus
this could match a death on scotlandspeople for jane lamb died 1870 kirkden
angus age recorded as 0 years  :-\

do you have any more details for charles and martha ?
i haven't seen anything about them

do you have the details for patrick lamb who died in ww1 ?
if not i think i found his death in 1918 on CWGC

Hi Ev

Sorry. All I have for Charles and Martha is that they were in Rhodesia in the late 1890's. I have names of family members (from old letters) who were still in Zimbabwe as of 1993, but do not know who the descend from.
I thought Patrick died in Dec.1918, but in a New York Times artical I have dated Sept 5, 1918it reads Commissioner Lambs son, Lieutenant Patrick Lamb of the Royal Garrison Artillery had been killed and that his youngest son had been wounded and gasses in the fighting around Rheims.Patricks wifes name was Edith and I belive he father was Dr. Robert Wilmot.
