Excerpt from Michael Anthony and Anne Shields-Lambing: Their Ancestors and Their Descendants

The writing of genealogies is no easy task. Our ancestors, who were very often pioneers in the backwoods, were more concerned with providing the necessaries of life than with recording the eventful or uneventful deeds of their rustic careers. Hence it is very difficult to trace families in all their endless ramifications, after the lapse of three or four generations; and this difficulty is increased, owing to the restless spirit of the American people, who thought little even in the days of primitive conveyances, of taking journeys of hundreds of miles to found new homes. The writer has several times written and published sketches of the Lambings, and has as often been compelled, by the discovery of additional facts, to modify his accounts. At length, in the fall of 1893, he determined to visit the spot where the Lambings and Shieldses, the progenitors of the branch of the families here treated of, first settled and made their permanent homes; and to learn on the spot whatever of tradition might still be collected. This visit was made to Nockamixon township, Bucks county, the first home of the Lambings, and to Amberson's Valley, Franklin county, the first permanent home of the Shieldses, both in Pennsylvania. From these and other sources he has collected, he believes, all the information that it is now possible to secure; and, if some points still remain doubtful, there is no alternative but to leave them in that obscurity from which it is no longer possible to rescue them. The following sketch is the result of all the information he has been able to collect.

Christopher Lambing, - or Christopher Michael, as some maintain, although the one name only is given in the baptismal and marriage registers - who was commonly known as "Stofel," was the founder of the family in America. The name is not uniformly spelled, some having Lambing, others Lamping, Lampeng, Lambin, and even Langbein; but this is not to be wondered at when it is remembered that it was taken from sound rather than from written documents. To those familiar with the early history of this country, such variations are common.
