Locke Genealogy


This website is dedicated to the genealogies of

  • John Locke (1627-1696) of Hampton and Rye, NH
  • Nathaniel Locke (1629-1674) of Portsmouth, NH
  • William Locke (1628-1720) of Woburn, MA

These are the only known Lockes to arrive in New England before the 18th century.

This online genealogy continues the tradition of the original genealogies from 1853 and 1916, plus the two supplements published by the Locke Family Association (LFA), to create a living family tree of the 20,000-some Locke descendants.

What Is Different
