About Bernard Lumber Lombard

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)

< http://www.scituatehistoricalsociety.org/families/LombardBernard.htm > -------------------- Bernard Lombard was Ensign of the military company in Barnstable in 1652. In 1660 he was appointed by the colony court to lay out lands granted to inhabitants of Eastham. In 1665 he layed out the land in Chatham allowed to Wm. Nickerson.

Barnard came to Dorchester, MA about 1630 aboard the "Mary & John", where he was admitted a freeman 1 Apr 1634. He was in Scituate by late 1634 where his wife joined the Rev. John Lothrop's church 19 Apr 1635. He was one of the first settlers of Barnstable, moving to the new town with Rev. Lothrop's flock in the fall of 1639. His house lot was by the old mill, near the shore.

In 1660 he was appointed by the Colony Court to lay out lands granted to inhabitants of Eastham, MA, and in 1665 to lay out one hundred acres of land in Chatham, MA. In 1667 he was one of a committee to lay out lands in Succanesett (town name later changed to Falmouth). He was appointed Ensign in the Barnstable Militia in 1652. In 1664 he was one of only seven persons in the town allowed to use the prefix Mr., a title which at that time signified that its possessor was a man of public and social consideration.

Bernard Lombard was born probably at Thorncombe, Dorset, ca. 1608. On 20 February 1668/69 he deposed that he was about age sixty. Bernard was the son of Thomas Lombard, and much of the information below is from Robert S. Wakefield, "The Lombard Family of Barnstable, Mass.," TAG 52:136-39. Bernard was first at Dorchester with his father. Moving to Plymouth County, he lived at Scituate, where he and his wife joined Lothrop's church 19 April 1635; he had a house at Scituate by 1636, and his daughter Mary was baptized there 8 October 1637. He became a Plymouth freeman 3 January 1636/37. In 1639 he moved to Barnstable with the Lothrop group. On 10 October 1643 the court ordered that if the townsmen of Barnstable did not appoint a place for their defense, it would have Mr. Thomas Dimmack, Anthony Annable, Henry Cobb, Henry Cogan, and Bernard Lombard do it. On 2 June 1646 Bernard Lombard was on the grand jury, a position he held a number of times. On 5 October 1652 he was approved by the court as ensign for the Barnstable military company. On 9 June 1653 Gyles Rickard was presented for lascivious carriage toward Mary Lombard, the daughter of Bernard Lombard. His children were Thomas, who married Elizabeth Derby; Abigail (also called Abia), who married James Claghorn; Mary, who married George Lewis; Martha, who married John Martin; and Jabez, who married Sarah Derby. In his 1668/69 deposition, Bernard called William Clark of Yarmouth "Father Clarke" and testified to Clarke's nuncupative will leaving everything he had to Joseph Benjamin, Bernard's brother-in-law.
