Surname Saturday -- LUMBERT (England to colonial New England)

It's Surname Saturday, and I'm "counting down" my Ancestral Name List each week.  

I am working in the 9th great-grandmothers by Ahnentafel number, and I am up to Ancestor #2119 who is Sarah LUMBERT (1636-1675). 
[Note: the earlier great-grandmothers and 9th great-grandfathers have been covered in earlier posts.]

My ancestral line back through one generation in this LUMBERT family line is:

1. Randall J. Seaver

2. Frederick Walton Seaver (1911-1983)
3. Betty Virginia Carringer (1919-2002)

4. Frederick Walton Seaver (1876-1942)
5. Alma Bessie Richmond (1882-1962)

8. Frank Walton Seaver (1852-1922)
9. Hattie Louise Hildreth (1857-1920)

16. Isaac Seaver (1823-1901)
17. Lucretia Townsend Smith (1827-1884)

32. Benjamin Seaver (1791-1825)
33. Abigail Gates (1797-1869)

66.  Nathan Gates (1767-1830)

67.  Abigail Knowlton (1774-1855)

132.  Simon Gates (1739-1803)
133.  Susanna Reed (1745-1833)

264.  Amos Gates (1706-1783)
265.  Mary Hubbard (1712-1754)

528.  Simon Gates (1667-1752)
529.  Hannah Benjamin (1669-1754)

1058.  Joseph Benjamin (1633-1704)
1059.  Sarah Clarke (1639-1716)

2118.  William Clarke, born about 1600 in England; died before 07 December 1668 in Yarmouth, Barnstable, Massachusetts, United States.  He married before 1639 in probably Yarmouth, Barnstable, Massachusetts, United States.
2119.  Sarah Lumbert, born about 1620 in Dorset, England; died 06 September 1675 in Dorchester, Suffolk, Massachusetts, United States.

Child of William Clarke and Sarah Lumbert is:

*  Sarah Clarke, born 01 August 1639 in Yarmouth, Barnstable, Massachusetts, United States; died Aft. 1716 in probably Preston, New London, Connecticut, United States; married Joseph Benjamin 12 December 1668 in Yarmouth, Barnstable, Massachusetts, United States.

I don't know who the parents of Sarah Lumbert are - she is probably a grandchild of Thomas Lombard (1581-1663) of Barnstable, Massachusetts through one of his sons.  Other children and grandchildren of Thomas Lombard married into the Clarke and Gates families in Barnstable County, Massachusetts.  

I have done no original research on this Lumbert/Lombard line.  Can anyone help?
