Disputed origins.

WikiTree's source by which this Edward Lamb is reported born "4 October 1612 at St. Nicholas, Ipswich, Suffolk, England" is information found in an undated and largely unidentifiable item "Family Group Sheets, Family History Archives, SLC."[1] The same description is given for the source providing all that is known about the purported father, Edward Lamb.

WikiTree-ers have found the same child-parent association to be reported in Yates Publishing, U.S. and International Marriage Records, 1560-1900."[2]

The information and association is inconsistent with findings about Edward Lamb, early New England immigrant in profiling by Robert Charles Anderson.[3]

FamilySearch's Historical Collections include an extracted record for the baptism of an Edward Lambe, at Saint Nicholas, Ipswich, Suffolk England, to a father, ____ Lambe, [4] but there are more than 100 births or baptisms between 1600 and 1615 of over 100 in the Historical Collections for persons, Edward Lamb.[5]

This child-parent association lacks historical justification--documents and rational.

Biography

In his profiling of the immigrant, Robert Charles Anderson found no record of a birth or represented age for Edward Lamb. Anderson estimated Lamb's birth as by "about 1608" based on the estimate date of his marriage (by 1633) to Margaret _____.[6] The marriage, in turn, was known as by 1633 based on the birth of daughter Hannah, at Watertown, 27 December 1633.[7]

Anderson discovered no earlier records at New England about Edward Lamb, whose emigration was reported 1633.[8]

Lamb settled first at Watertown; the family removed to Boston by 1648.[9]

When his daughter Elizabeth was baptized at Boston, the record noted one of the parents was, or both of the parents were, member(s) of the Watertown church.[10]

Edward Lamb died, probably Boston, sometime after Elizabeth's baptism (27 June 1648) and before 16 October 1650 when administration of his estate was granted to Samuel Allen by petition from "Margrett Allen, late wife of Edward Lambe."[11]

Children born to Edward Lamb and Margaret _____.

  1. Hannah, b Watertown 27 Dec 1633; no further record (Some say she m. Joseph Knight December 10, 1649
  2. Mary, bur Watertown 10 Nov 1635, aged 2 mo
  3. Samuel, b Watertown 3 Apr 1637; no further record
  4. Mary, b Watertown 30 Apr 1638; no further record
  5. John (twin) bur Watertown 20 Feb 1639/40, 7 days old
  6. Increase (twin) bur Watertown 20 Feb 1639/40, 7 days old
  7. (prob) John, b abt 1642, m1 by 1677 Mary (French) Poole[12]; m2 by 1690 Lydia ____[13] -- that he was their son is based on several pieces of circumstantial evidence:
    1. John Lamb m in Braintree about 1677 Mary (French) Poole, widow of Samuel;
    2. the widow of Edward Lamb remarried to Samuel Allen of Braintree
    3. John Lamb had among his children a son of Samuel and a dau Margaret, possibly named for his mother and stepfather.
  8. (poss.) Sarah b abt 1644; m Braintree 27 Jul 1664 Stephen Scott[14]
  9. Elizabeth, b abt 16 Jun, 1648; no further record
"In 1990 Joan S. Guilford examined the family of Edward Lamb, arriving at some conclusions which are not always consistent with those given above."[15]

I have added soft links between the two men, Edward Lamb, in the profiles of both the father and the son.

Is there any objection to severing this child-parent association?
