My husband's family tree stops with John Lambe as well. My husband was adopted and was told his line was from Clan Lamont in Scotland. We has since found his father and haven't found any link to them yet. We stop with John. Unofficially, I see his parents coming from Glamis Scotland. Connected to Robert the Bruce. But I don't see any corroboration anywhere, so I don't think it's true. I would like to hear if you found anything.
Dear Jennifer - I'm afraid that I haven't uncovered any more information on John Lambe b. 1458 on Wikitree.  However, in a general internet search, I located this possibility [link below].  Have no idea how valid it is.  Perhaps you can find out more.

Good luck - Candace Lamb

Hi Candace,

You might want to message the profile manager directly with your question. You'd be more likely to get a response in this case. You can do so by  sending her a private message. The link is just above the Public Bulletin Board on the right hand side of John's profile.

I have John Lambe (1458-1495) as an ancestor to my Great Grandmother Augusta Lamb Radcliffe. My research indicates 13 prior generations to one Roger de Leonne born in 1040 and whose father was a colleague of William the Conqueror.

Philip - many thanks for your comment and information.  I hope you plan to log those 13 generations of ancestors to your Great Grandmother in the WikiTree database.  I'd like to see the details and perhaps be able to link your research with my Lamb tree.  Sincerely, CML
