Daily entries from the 17th century London diary
Shouldn't this "Captain Lambert" be David Lambert (commanding the Norwich)?
Scratch that, it IS James Lambert who commands the Duke's yacht. Sorry.
L&M Companion reports, "Served in the Commonwealth Navy; captain of the Duke of Yorks's yacht, Anne 1662; killed in action 1665."
Captain James Lambert.
Was Captain of the Happy Return in the fleet list of April 1665. 4th rate, 50 guns and 190 men.
