lambert History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms


Origins Available: English , French , German


The roots of the lambert family are found in the ancient German state of Bavaria. lambert is one of the most common styles of German surname, that of patronymics and matronymics - names derived from the given names of the father or mother of their original bearers. lambert is derived from the Old Germanic name Landbehrt, which means shining land or holy land. The name Lambert, with its many regional variations, was popular both as a first and last name throughout the Middle Ages. This was partly owing to the fame of Bishop Lambertus von Maastricht who lived in the 8th century.


Early Origins of the lambert family


The surname lambert was first found in Franconia, where the name could be considered to make a great early contribution to the feudal society which became the backbone of early development of Europe. The name Lambrecht with its many regional variations was much loved both as a first and last name throughout the Middle Ages. This was partly owing to the fame of Bishop Lambertus von Maastricht who lived around 700 AD. The oldest Germanic variation is Land-behrt, meaning literally "shining-land" or "holy-land." The variation Lamprecht especially became prominent in local affairs and branched into many houses which played important roles in the tribal and national conflicts of the Middle Ages, where each group sought power and status in an ever-changing territorial profile.

Migration of the lambert family to the New World and Oceana


European migration to North America began in the mid-17th century and continued unabated until the mid-20th. Many Bavarians made the long trip to escape poverty or persecution based on their religious beliefs. The chance for tenant farmers to own their own land was also a major drawing card. They settled all across the United States in Pennsylvania, Texas, New York, Illinois, and California. Many came to Canada also, settling in Ontario and the prairie provinces. Analysis of immigration records has shown some of the first lamberts to arrive in North America, and among them were:
