My G Grandfather - Apostles Lambert??

Postby golliver » 27 Jun 2006, 12:25

Hi, Looking for some help here. Have come to a brick wall in my research as my g-grandfather - Apostle/s Lambert may have changed his name or it may have beeen anglicized by an errant recorder when he came to NZ around 1872/1874 possibly via Australia. He was born in Nice in 1852 according to his first marriage certificate or 1854 in Naples according to his second marriage certificate. We believe Nice is more likely to be correct as we have always been told he was northern Italian. Family stories say that he was a bodyguard to Guiseppe Garibaldi, but it would have had to have been in the latter part of Garibaldi's life, probably after he retired. His mothers maiden name is recorded as being Elizabeth Laltans and His father recorded as Peter Lambert on his first marriage certificate. He settled in Parematta in NZ along with other fishermen around 1879. Other fishermen who settled in the area at the same time have the surnames of Barberer, Baretly, Gestro, Lama, Parris, Vella and Vello. I would be grateful for any help I can get. Thank You. Gail

Hi Gail,

Here are some great websites from New Zealand. I hope some of them are a help to you.

Smile for me!:)

The National Archives in New Zealand www.archives.govt.nz/holdings/immigration_frame.html

Archives New Zealand Head Office Wellington holds passenger lists for nearly all ships arriving in New Zealand for the period 1883-1973. On arrival in New Zealand, ships handed formal Passenger Lists to a customs officer.

The Social Security Department used these Passenger Lists to check people's eligibility for old age pensions. They are referred to as the Social Security passenger lists.

Another source could be the Library in Christchurch NZ, who also maintain Passenger Lists

Thanks Trish, I will double check all the sites you mentioned however, I've pretty much exhausted the NZ end of his life. Maybe some one could recommend a historian who has done extensive research on Garibaldi. There may be some references to aqaintences, employees, friends, etc of Garibaldi after he retired. Cheers, gail
