Pepys's friend & maybe James Pearse's
Serving under Mountagu in the Navy, he socializes, naturally enough, with other Mountagu men.
24 Jan. 1660
He comes late to the rowdy party at the Pearses' with navy clerk James Southerne, bearing political news (maybe he isn't that close to Pearse after all). He is a "lieutenant of my Lord's ship" even then.
3 March 1660
He, Pearse and Mountagu's men Will Howe and John Creed all meet up with Pepys and go with him to the Sun Tavern.
5 April 1660
A lieutenant on the Naseby for the trip to Holland in April, Lambert invites Pepys, Howe, Pearse, Balthasar (Pepys's brother-in-law) and Nathaniel Ibbot to have supper in his cabin. This is Lambert's third appearance socializing with Pearse and Pepys, second with Howe.
