 LA   William Lambert (-1716)
Although I am not a descendant of William Lambert, some of his descendants married into my family. Consequently, I have devoted Allied Family Topic LA to his family.

William Lambert, in his own words
If he could speak to us today, William Lambert might describe his life as follows.

Anne (Bradshaw) Bradley and I were the parents of seven children whom we reared in Richmond County near William Hammock and Col. John Tarpley Ann was born in Northumberland County, a daughter of Robert Bradshaw, and the widow of Robert Bradley and her mother was likely the Ann Bradshaw who swore 20 March 1655/6 that she was about eighteen. 
I was dying when I made my will in Richmond County 9 January 1715/6.  Since daughter, Elizabeth, and sons, William and John, were still young, I directed that they live with their brother, Hugh, until age 17. I mentioned also daughters Anne, Elizabeth, and Mary.
My death came 6 March 1715/6,  and the clerk recorded my will at the next session of the court, 4 April 1716. Ann outlived me nearly 30 years.

Anne Lambert’s will mentioned her daughter Elizabeth Askins, grandson Lambert Morgan, granddaughters Elizabeth Morgan and Anne Jones, and son-in-law William Dunn (will dated 14 March 1742/3  and proved 7 Nov. 1743). We have been unable to place Anne Jones or William Dunn.

More about Robert Bradshaw
Robert Bradshaw was a headright when Thomas Harvey got a patent to 950 acres in James City County 3 July 1640,  and he 400 acres on the Mattaponi River in Northumberland County 18 Oct. 1651. 
On 8 March 1653/4 Robert Bradshaw got a patent to 345 acres in Northumberland County next to the Yeocomico River that he sold to Edward Williams who sold it to James Clayton.  This tract would ultimately be in the hand of his grandson Robert Bradley by 1724. 
With James Clayton, Robert got 600 acres 15 July 1657 that they and their wives conveyed to George Berry in Nov. 1657.  A 1656 patent to Richard Rice identified neighbors as Robert Bradshaw and John Bradshaw. 
A 1685 judgement in Northumberland County reveals that Ann Bradshaw, daughter and heir of Robert Bradshaw, married 1st Robert Bradley. Edward Williams was an heir of Temperance Bradshaw who had sued Bradley.  Since Temperance was the name of the wife of Edward Williams, he must have married another daughter of Robert Bradshaw.
