It seems that we are looking for the same Lamb(e) family line. Below, I have listed my original posting and hope that the information will be of some value to you. If you have any information that could fill in any of the blanks that I have, I would appreciate the information very much.
I have researched my genealogy as far back as William Lamb (born: approx. 1752, married: 2/15/1777, died: 1807 in New Hanover County, NC) he married Abigail David. William and Abigail had several children one of which was John Deloit Lamb (died: 1844 in Sampson County, NC).
John Deloit Lamb married Elizabeth Henry and they had several children one of which was James Henry Lamb (born: 12-18-1808 in New Hanover County, NC, died: 11-19-1889 in Sampson County, NC, married to Nancy Clark Underwood, both James and Nancy are buried in the Lamb Cemetery on Colin Lamb's estate, located on RT. 1 Garland, NC).
I am interested in finding information on William Lamb's ancestors and filling in the gaps for his descendents.
I found a reference to Peter Lamb on a New Hanover County deed, dated 1-28-1744 for 130 acres of land at Long Creek. Peter's property was deeded by Thomas Lamb (probably his eldest son) on 2-15-1775 in equal lots to Gibbs Lamb, Robert Lamb, William Lamb and John Stackly (probably son in law of Peter). I think Peter was William's father or possibly Thomas's father, and maybe Thomas was William's father.
The earliest record I can find of a Lamb in New Hanover County was a land grant from King George II to Captain John Lamb in 1736 (June 16) for 350 acres on the east side of Black River, which runs from the present day Sampson County (once New Haven) almost all the way to Wilmington.
I would appreciate any information that anyone can provide me.
