Descendants of Richard Lombard


Generation No. 1

1. RICHARD1 LOMBARD was born Abt. 1590 in Tenderton, Kent, England.

Notes for RICHARD LOMBARD:











The Lombards were an old race a thousand years ago. They were an ancient Germanic people of Sueric stock. Some of their writings claim the name derived from their habit of wearing long beards, but modern critics say that it refers to the banks of the Elbe where they first ap­peared in the time of Augustus.

In the fifth century they appeared. in Hungray where after a protracted war, they annihilated their enemies, and under their King Alboni, they crossed the Julian Alps and. in 1568 founded a powerful state in Northern Italy, kown as Lombardy. Part of the country is a descending plain from the Alps to the river P0, and is one of the richest and. most productive countries in the World. After many successful Kings, one of them embraced Christianity.

In 1774 they were conquered by Charlemayne The Lombard cities with Milan at the head, again became prosperous and powerful and. by the treaty of Constance in 1183 they became independent.

In 1395 the head of a family became a Duke, whose dau. married the Duke of Orleans. They passed under french, Spanish and. Austrian govern­ments by various successions and treaties, till conquered by Napoleon in
1796.

The name so prevalent in Europe and early in America undoubtedly sprang from this race. This was before the time of surnames and as they moved west­ward into other European cities they would naturally be known first as Lombards, and as the tendency turned to surnames they would first be called
'John the Lombard,' then John Lombard, etc. This is the well known rise of surnames.

The name is not uncommon in France. Lombardy Street is well known in Paris and that name in London is familiar as Picadilly.

freeman says 'The name has been variously written, and families of the same lineage now call themselves Lombard, Lembert. Lumbert or Lumber.'
