1890. Lt. Bernard LUMBERT (383) (476)(945) was born about 1608 in Thornecombe, Dorset, England. He died after 20 Feb 1668/69 in (probably) Barnstable, MA. IMMIGRANT - Judy Goldbaum has last name of Lombart; Bonnie Hubbard has Lumbard and Lumbert. (See daughters notes for explanation.)
"Bernard had become a Plymouth freeman 3 Jan 1636-7 and after that he held a number of committee positions and was often on the grand jury. On 3 Oct 1652 he was approved by the court as ensign for the Barnstable military company. By 1664 he was one of only seven men in town who were called "Mr." In those times this title signified a man of public and social consideration (Stratton, p. 319, Otis, p. 218). In a deposition in 1668-9 Bernard called William Clarke of Yarmouth "Father Clarke," probably meaning father-in-law. He was probably married about 1632 in America, but may have been married in England, and it is also possible that a Clarke became his wife after the mother of his children died. So many records have been lost. It is not known when he died, but the 1668-9 deposition is the last record to mention his name." (Bonnie Grant, Lumbert Chapter)
He was married. Children were:
