The name of this apple comes from the place it was first grown, although it has both American and English origins. Mary Malcomb is reported to have planted a seed from a Newport Pippin apple imported from the United States at her home at Lamb Abbey in Kent, England in 1804. By chance, the apple tree that grew from the seed produced delicious and attractive fruit, which is now sold as the Lamb Abbey Pearmain.
