Re: History behind surname

In Reply to: History behind surname by Julie Lamble of 79

In France, the "e" in Lamble has an accent. Thus in French, the name sounds like Lambley. My grandfather signed his name with the accent after first arriving in the US. Later, typewriters became common and American typewriters did not have "e" with an accent. It soon became common for most of French origin to simply sign their names with just the letter "e" (no accent).

We would like to establish a link between the French and English Lamble families but so far the data eludes us.

Thank you
