Lankaber is a group of farms which is part of Maulds Meaburn It isn't a hamlet in its own right.
The name Maulds Meaburn goes back to the 12th century. The King at the time, Henry II, gave part of the lands of Meaburn to Sir Hugh de Morville, and the other part to his sister, Maud de Veteripont. Sir Hugh eventually fell out of favour with the King, after which the King reclaimed Sir Hugh's section of the land, and this area from here on became known as Kings Meaburn. The land that belonged to Maud was and to this day (September 2008) is called Maulds Meaburn.
The village changed hands over the years and after it was owned by the Veteriponts it passed to the families of Frauncey and then Vernon.
Flass House, on the south side of the village, is a picturesque mansion, built 1851-3 in Italianate style. It was the home of Lancelot Dent who was involved in the opium trade. In 2015 the current owner of Flass House was convicted, along with several other men, of drug offences, where Flass House was used as a 'cannabis farm'.
