Lambert, George a Presbyterian minister, was born January 31, 1742, at Chelsea, England. In 1767 he became a student at the theological school under the charge of Reverend James Scott, at Heckmondwicke, England. He pursued his studies there for five years, and then accepted the charge of a church at Hull, April 9, 1769, where he continued his ministrations until his death, March 17, 1816. Mr. Lambert was a minister of more than ordinary power and success, attaching to himself, by his intellectual vigor, moral worth, and Christian excellence, not only his own people, but also numerous members and ministers of other denominations. He published two volumes of his sermons, On various useful and important Subjects, adapted to the Family and the Closet. Lambert was one of the founders of the London Missionary Society, and preached its first anniversary sermon in May, 1796. See Morison, Missionary Fathers, page 375 sq.
