Port Lambton (pop. 1000) is located in Sombra Township on the St. Clair River just outside Wallaceburg and south of Sarnia. After 1812, people started to settle along the St. Clair River. Before few people lived there. They were French, and didn't have legal title to the land. When the Irish moved in, the French sold their squatters rights to the Irish in about 1833.
