The Charles Lambert Legacy begins with John Lupton
and his common
law wife, Elizabeth Lambert:
Lupton B: 20
April 1718, Kirkdeighton, England
B: 21 June 1736
and Elizabeth, who were second cousins, fell in love and made plans to marry.
However, English law of the time forbade marriage between relatives.
The couple petitioned for an exception, but were turned down. They
decided to live together as though they were married. As a result,
the Church of England considered them outcasts and non-Christians, never
recognizing their marriage. The children took on their mother's
maiden name and their posterity followed suit. Thus, our family
name today is Lambert instead of Lupton. (click on Elizabeth
Lambert above to read a more complete account of their story.)
The Luptons and the Lamberts attended All Saints Church in Kirk Deighton
(the church steeple is just visible at the end of the street)

Charles John Lambert family at their home on 3100 South, Granger, Utah
(Lilly, his first wife, is seated to his right and "Aunt Mary",
his second wife, is to his left. This photo was taken near the
turn of the century. The
federal Edmund-Tucker Act of 1887 had outlawed polygamy. Even
though the LDS Church discontinued the practice of plural marriage after
1887, some LDS families continued in polygamy, or "celestial
marriage" for a time.)
Charles Druce (in a coat and tie, fourth from the
left in the back
row) was the only surviving son. His
brother, Joseph (17 years his junior), was killed during the First World War and another
brother was stillborn.

Memories of Margaret
Woodbury and Charles D Lambert by Lurena Eldredge Warnick,
daughter of Julia Lambert Eldredge, one of Charles John Lambert's sisters.
She describes her visits to the Charles John home and her memories of
Charles Druce and his first wife, Margaret Woodbury Lambert.
Margaret Woodbury's paternal grandmother was Ann Cannon Woodbury,
sister to George Q Cannon and Mary Alice Cannon Lambert. Ann
Cannon was one of the pioneers to
enter the Salt Lake Valley in 1847. In the famous Jubilee photo
taken in 1897 on Temple Square of the 1847 pioneers, Ann is number
175. View the unnumbered
photo. Notice that the 1847 pioneers are wearing gold
tiffany pins with their names engraved on the back.
