Sebastian Lambrecht, son of Jorg Lambrecht & Elisabeth Schopf, was born on 5 March 1726 in Burghausen, a small village south of Wülfershausen in Würzberg (today in Lower Franconia, Bavaria). He married Barbara (surname unknown) and they had at least 2 children, both born in Burghausen: Nikolaus (born 1754) and Michael (born 1757).

Sebastian Lambrecht, a farmer, his wife Barbara, and children (Nikolaus, age 14; Michael, age 8) arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 13 September 1766 aboard the hooker Die Jungfer Dietrika under the command of Skipper Christian Korsholm.

Sebastian Lambrecht, his wife Barbara, and sons (Nicolas, age 16; Michel, age 9) are recorded on the list of colonists being transported from St. Petersburg to Saratov in 1767 along with a note that Barbara died en route.

They settled in the colony of Pfeifer on 22 August 1767 and are recorded there on the 1767 Census of Pfeifer in Household No. 83 along with Sebastian's new wife Anna Maria.

In 1790, Jakob Lambrecht moved from Pfeifer to Brabander.

In 1796, Nikolaus Lambrecht and his family moved from Pfeifer to Semenovka.

The 1834 census of Pfeifer (Household No. 98) records that Philipp Lambrecht relocated from Pfeifer to Rohleder.

Michael Lambrecht from Pfeifer and his family are recorded on the 1857 census of Marienfeld.

The 1767 census records that Sebastian Lambrecht came from the German village of Arnstein in the Würzburg region.
