Early Origins of the Ambart family
The surname Ambart was first found in Dauphiny (French: Dauphiné or Dauphiné Viennois), a former province in southeastern France, where this renowned family held a family seat
since ancient times.
By the 12th century, this family was quite important in the Dauphiné and had formed seven branches. Amongst these were the branches of Lambert of Pouget, of Ozon, of Bruyère in Valentinois, of Saint-Christophe in the county of Vaud, Switzerland. Lambert gave its name to La Rochelambert or "Roche of Lambert" and in Velay, Pierre Lambert, Knight, was the Lord of la Rochelambert in 1164. From another branch of this noble family in Languedoc, Raymond and Bernard are mentioned in 1196. CITATION[CLOSE]
