lampard History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

lampard is one of the thousands of new names that the Norman Conquest of 1066 brought to England. It comes from the Old German personal name Lambert or Lanbert. These names are both composed of the elements land, which means land or territory and berht, which means bright or famous.

"Lambeth is a word of Anglo-Saxon origin, a corruption of lam-hithe, signifying the loam-hithe or muddy landing-place, and making one of the chief hithes or landing places on the banks of the Thames in Anglo-Saxon times." [1]

Jaenbert, Janbriht, Jambert, Genberht, Lambert or Lanbriht (d. 791), was Archbishop of Canterbury, consecrated abbot of St. Augustine's at Canterbury in 760, and was regarded with friendship by Eadbert, king of Kent. "When foiled in his attempt to secure the body of Archbishop Bregwin for burial in his monastery, he appealed against the claim of the monks of Christ Church. His resolute behaviour excited the admiration of his opponents; they knew that he was prudent and able, and they had, it is said, no fancy for defending their claim at Rome. Accordingly they elected him to the vacant archbishopric, and he appears to have been consecrated on Septuagesima Sunday, 2 Feb. 766, and to have received the pall from Pope Paul I, probably in the course of 767." [2]

"Lambert, Lanbert 'land-bright', a popular name from the 12th century, [was] probably introduced from Flanders where St Lambert of Maestricht was highly venerated." [3]

Early Origins of the lampard family

The surname lampard was first found in Surrey where they were descended from the ancient Count of Mons and Louvain, born 940 A.D. died 1004. His three sons were Baldwin, Ralph, and Hugh Lambert. Accompanying Duke William to England at the Battle of Hastings, a Norman chief, Haco Lambert acquired lands from Duke William and is recorded in the Domesday Book.

Descended was Henry Fitz Lambert living in 1235 who was a benefactor of the church at Lincoln. Early records of the family were found the in the parish of Kirkby in Malham Dale in the West Riding of Yorkshire.

"The church is a large and handsome building, of the style that prevailed in the reign of Henry VII., and is the burial-place of the Lambert family, of whom General Lambert was distinguished, on the side of Cromwell, in the civil war." [4]

Spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the lampard family name include Lambert, Lambard, Lamberth and others.
