It is my understanding that all Lampkin, Lambkin and other spellings go back to the name Lamkin. This is suppose to have come froman English sea captain by the name of Thomas Lamkin whom it is believed started out the original families of Lamkin's in this country back in the 1600s. I am descended from the Lamkin's thru my g.gr.mother, she was born and raised in Carroll Co. VA. Her Lamkin fam. was always from VA, they go back to this sea captain. Also all thru her lines, the Lamkin name has been spelled all these different ways..... They also sprinkled over into No. Carolina, many came into Tenn........and further on from there. So check the Lamkin genforum, you might have a better chance of finding your lines, also do a search in Virginia records. Hope this helps you, Kay Hill Woods.
