  • Notes 
    • Sarah Lamb, daughter of James Lamb and Catalina Mathews, was born about 1780 and lived with her family at Rye in Sussex county England. In 1801 she was married to James Noble. They were the parents of six identified children:

      Jeffrey Wheelock Noble (married Charlotte Voyle); Mary Jane Noble (married Henry Luxmore); Edith Elizabeth Noble (married William Pym); Edward Meadows Noble; William Woollett Noble; and Caroline Noble (married Francis Voyle). Sarah Lamb Noble died in 1818. James Noble was twice more married and may have had other children.

      . . . In 1801 he [James Noble] married Sarah Lamb of Mountsfield, near Rye, who was one of the last descendants of the Earls of Llandaff, and went to live on the coast of Sussex. In 1802 he obtained the rank of captain, and the following year his eldest son, Horatio Nelson, was born, Lord Nelson standing as his sponsor and giving the child his own distinguished names.
