Biography

Isaac Lamb bought land near the Mystic river in what was New London, Connecticut about 1695 or 1696. In 1704 all of New London east of the River Thames was made Groton. He is believed to have been the Isaac Lamb recorded as having been baptized and owned the covenant at Watertown, Massachusetts, 10 Jul 1687.

There is a well-founded tradition that Isaac Lamb, with his father ( whose name is unknown but is believed to have been Daniel), came from England and settled first on a grant of land they had received at Haverhill, Massachusetts, but they were finally driven away by the Indians, and Isaac went to New London, Connecticut, for safety. Isaac Lamb was said to have been a soldier in Cromwell's army. In 1714 he bought two hundred acres of land in Mystic, Connecticut, which has been the homestead ever since. He died in 1723. He married Elizabeth .

They first joined the church at Norwich, Conn.ecticut but through some minor disbelief in orthodoxy, were excommunicated, and Isaac became one of the organizers of the first Baptist church in Connecticut, founded at Groton in 1705. Isaac Lamb was one of the two deacons first elected.

There are two possible wives for Isaac Lamb: Elizabeth Hemstead and Elizabeth Usher.

Notes from Delinger: "Mrs Wozniak says her name not Hempstead. Elizabeth joined Baptist Church Norwich 1710. Her will proved 2 Jul 1723. New England marriages prior to 1700 says Isaac's wife Elizabeth was b. 1695 or 1692. Cd 100 says Isaac was of New London, Conn. & was the son of Daniel Lamb. It also said Elizabeth was born About 1670, but had no last name for her. sources have been cited. Can you add information or sources?

I am disconnecting Elizabeth Hempstead as his wife. Elizabeth Hempstead was married in 1689 to John Plumbe, not to Isaac Lamb.

Isaac was instead married to Elizabeth Usher.

Hi Tom

Before the merge Lamb-2349 and Lamb-1788 can be completed there is a conflict with the Father that needs to be resolved.

Father:

Daniel Lamb Born 1640 and John Daniel Lamb Born 1625.

Also it may be wise to check both Biographies ans Sources as they will be combined in the merge.

Let me know if I can be of any assistance. Barry Malcolm Arborist and Data Doctor.
