Families covered: Lamplugh of Lamplugh Hall

We do not normally like relying too much on Ancestry.com (which includes RootsWeb), particularly for early generations, as, even though it is a brilliant project, parts of it have been contaminated by erroneous data. Nevertheless, when its contributors have identified their sources, it can be very useful. Although we are cautious about the earliest generations it covers, we have obtained a good impression of the RootsWeb subsite we are using for these Lamplugh pages.
