Like I said I wish it was true. I suggest you read the back of your book. It says:

I will quote from my source which is "The Americans of Royal Descent" by
Charles H. Browning, Seventh Edition.
This is from page B of the Corrigenda (which is in the back of the book).
"LYMAN. Pedigree XXXVI.-This claim is reproduced from Dr. Coleman's "Lyman
Genealogy." It seems that Sir "William" Lambert, of Owlton, and his wife,
Lady Joan de Umfraville, had no son named "Robert," and that the "Robert
Lambert, of Owlton," his alleged son, was the son and heir of Sir John
Lambert, of Owlton, the son and heir of the said Sir "William," by Lady
Joan. Since printing this claim to royal descent, I find that there is some
uncertainty about it, because there is no evidence, and only assumption, by
Dr. Coleman, that Henry Lambert, of Ongar, in Essex, 1447, was the son of
Robert Lambert, of Owlton, in Durham. I am retaining the claim, hoping that
it may be substantiated. See further as to it in the "Boston Transcript,"
16 May, 1904".
