Peniston Lamb (1770–1805)
The Honourable Peniston Lamb (3 May 1770 – 24 January 1805) was a British politician.
Lamb was the eldest son of Peniston Lamb, 1st Viscount Melbourne, and Elizabeth, daughter of Sir Ralph Milbanke, 5th Baronet. Prime Minister William Lamb, 2nd Viscount Melbourne, Frederick Lamb, 3rd Viscount Melbourne and the Hon. George Lamb were his younger brothers. Due to their mother's numerous love affairs, only Peniston is likely to have been Lord Melbourne's son.
Peniston Lamb had an affair with the much older Mrs. Sophia Musters née Heywood (1758–1819).
