    • Thomas was baptized in Thorncombe, Dorsetshire, England on 2 February 1581/2. He immigarted in 1630 on the "Mary & John". Taking residence first at Dorchester, Massachusetts. He removed to Barnstable in 1639. Thomas was an innkeeper (on 3 December 1639 allowed by Plymouth General Court "to keep victualling or an ordinary, for entertainment of passengers, and to draw wine at Barnstable, he keeping good order in his house"). When Jobaniah Lombard was baptized at Dorchester on 23 June 1639, he appeared in a list of "such children as have been baptized in the church of Dorchester by communion of churches, their parents one or both being members of the church at Windsor, or Hingham". The church member in this case was probably Thomas Lombard's third wife. Thomas Lombard had joined the Barnstable church by 1641, as he had two sons baptized there, and is called "Brother Lumbar Senior" at the baptism of Thomas Jr.. Thomas was requested a freeman on 19 October 1630 (as "Tho: Lumberd") and admitted 18 May 1631 (as "Tho: Lumbard"). Thomas took the oath of fidelity, at Barnstable, 1657. Thomas was likely an educated man as his will inventory included "books" valued at 14s. He was Barnstable surveyor of highways, 6 June 1649. Land ownership by Thomas is recorded in the following, he was granted two acres marsh at Dorchester, 27 June 1636; grant of additional two acres of marsh, 2 January 1637/8; granted two lots, each of nearly four acres, 18 March 1637/8; received Lot #51, six acres, in meadow beyond Naponset.
      In his will, dated 23 March 1662/3, acknowledged 10 June 1663 and proved 7 March 1664/5, "Thomas Lumbert of Barnstable" bequeathed to "my wife that she shall have her habitation in the house that I now live in so long as she liveth or continueth a widow, and further that she shall have the use of one third of my arable lands ... and the meadow lying in Mattakessett field"; to "my son Caleb my house and one third of my lands... moreover my son Caleb and my son Jedadiah and my son Benjamine all of them are to have habitation and free egress and regress in the house solong as my wife liveth or continueth a widow"; at wife's death or remarriage "my son Caleb shall give unto my son Jedediah and my son Benjamine each of them �5 and then the house and forementioned lands to be Caleb's"; "if my son Jedediah or Benjamine shall see cause to remove their dwellings that if they be willing to have their forementioned �5 apiece; that upon six months' warning my son Caleb shall pay it unto them; and the other two thirds of my lands I give unto my other two sons, Jedediah and Benjamine"; "I do confirm by this my last will and testament certain parcels of lands that formerly I gave unto other of my children as followeth ... unto my son Barnard twenty acres of land, unto my son Joshua two acres of land, and unto my son-in-law Josepth Benjamine four acres of land and unto my son-in-law Edward Coleman one acre of land"; to "my wife the old mare, one cow and two heifers only she is to give unto my son Joshua and my daughter Margarett Coleman the first living colt"; "she is to give unto my grandchild Abigaill Benjamine the first heifer calf that shall come of the forementioned cows"; to "my wife my yoke of oxen with yokes, chains, cart and wheels" and at her death they to be divided between "my three sons Caleb, Jedediah and Benjamine equally"; residue to "my wife and to be at her dispose, only an hog shed of mackerel that is due from Thomas Starr my son Caleb is to have for his own use in lieu of some bedding that was his"; to "my son Caleb the yoke of oxen and a gale and the three year old mare that was always accounted his, and his carpenter's tools and his arms and the saddle and bridle ... only he shall give unto my son Barnard the half of the first colt that his forementioned mare shall have"; to "my son Jedediah the young mare of a year and vantage old, and a calf of a year old and a cow and a gale and his arms"; to "my son Benjamine the black horse and a cow and a calf of a year old with his arms"; "my wife shall give ... unto my son Barnard's wife 10s. and unto my son Barnard my looms with all materials"; the bay horse lately bought of Mr. John Freeman equally divided among "my three sons Caleb, Jedadiah and Benjamine and they shall pay "unto my son Joshua Lumber 20s . within a year"; "I do confirm the cow that formerly I gave unto my daughter Jemina" [MD 16:1 24-26, citing PCPR 2:2:24]. The "true inventory of the estate of Thomas Lumbert of Barnstable Senior deceased" was taken 8 February 1664[/5] and totalled �210 8s. 6d., including "lands and housing" valued at �60 [MD 16:126, citing PCPR 2:2:25]. On 7 March1664[/5] Joyce, "the wife of Thomas Lumbert, deceased," Jedediah Lumbertand Caleb Lumbert, were granted administration on the estate of Thomas Lumbert [PCR 4:81]. Thomas died in Barnstable between 10 June 1663 (date of will) and 8 February 1664[/5] (date of inventory).
      Children born are as follows,
      With first wife
      i THOMAS, bp. Thorncombe 7 September 1602; perhaps he who m. Ashill, Somerset 9 June 1624 Thomaszine Hawkins [TAG 52:136], otherwise died probably before his half-brother of the same name was born in 1617; no further certain record.
      ii BERNARD, b. about 1608 (deposed 20 February 1668[/9?] aged about sixty [MD 17:109]); m . by about 1633 _____ _____. (Wakefield suggests that Bernard Lombard may have had a second wife, who may have been daughter of William Clarke of Yarmouth [TAG 52:138-39].)
      With second wife
      iii THOMAS, bp. Thorncombe 9 October 1617; d. probably about 1661[TAG 52:137].
      iv JOSHUA, bp. Thorncombe 15 October 1620; m. Barnstable 27 May 1651 Abigail Linnett [NEHGR 9:287].
      v MARGARET, bp. Thorncombe 7 March 1623; m. Nauset [Eastham] 27 October 1648 "Edward Coleman of Boston" [NEHGR 9:286].
      With third wife
      vi CALEB, b. say 1635; m. _____ _____ [TAG 52:138].
      vii JEMIMA, b. say 1637; m. Boston 10 June 1661 Joseph Benjamin, son of JOHN BENJAMIN ("Joseph Benjamine of Bastable & Jemima Lumbard daughter of the late Thomas Lumbard deceased" [BV R 81]; the Boston record has apparently confused Jemima's brother with the father in this record [TAG52:137]).
      viii JOBANIAH, bp. Dorchester 23 June 1639 [DChR 149]; no further record.
      ix JEDEDIAH, b. Barnstable 20 September 1640 [sic] [MD 11:97], bp. there 19 September 1641 [NEHGR 9:282]; m. Barnstable 20 May 1668 Hannah Wing [MD 11:98].
      x BENJAMIN, b. Barnstable 26 August 1642 [sic] [MD 11:97], bp. there 5 August 1643 ("son of Brother Lumbar Senior" [NEHGR 9:282]); m. (1) Barnstable 19 September 1672 Jane Warren [M D 11:98]; m. (2) Barnstable 19 November 1685 Sarah Walker [MD 11:98]; m. (3) Barnstable 24 May 1694Hannah (_____) Whetstone, widow [MD 11:98].
      COMMENTS: On 2 October 1660 Thomas Lumbert Sr. of Barnstable complained to the court that "Jedediah, his son, hath carried stubbornly against his said father, and that he is by him freed , provided he do dispose himself in some honest family with his father's consent, which if he shall neglect to do, the Court have deputed Mr. Hinckley to dispose of him tosome honest, Godly family, with his and his father's consent" [PCR 3:201].
      The Barnstable vital records appear to have been compiled census-style late in the seventeenth century, and include the births as given above for Jedediah and Benjamin, being "Tho[ma]s Lumbart Senior his children born at Barnstable" [MD 11:97]. As these records were compiled long after the dates of these two births, these dates are probably less reliable than the baptisms.
      BIBLIOGRAPHIC NOTE: In 1976 Robert S. Wakefield worked out a number of difficult problems in " The Lombard Family of Barnstable, Mass.," and his results are for the most part followed here [TAG 52:136-39]. In 1992 Eleanor Cooley Rue proposed an identity for Thomas Lombard's fourt h wife [TAG 67:47-52], and her conclusions necessitated some adjustments to the work of Wakefield.
