Locke Genealogy


The Locke Family Association has announced a 2-year project to update the Locke Genealogy

This website will help organize our updates and 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) in 1979 and 2002, to create a living family tree of the 20,000-some Locke descendants.

Do I Have to Log In?

Access to the first few generations is open. Please check it out!

The full site is available to members of the Locke Family Association. Just register for an account.

Now that we have more than 2500 locations in the database, the most significant roadblock now is getting the lat/long coordinates for all the places in the database.  These are all updated on the staging server from Google.

There are several issues with places that I find awkward.  First, what to do when new counties ar...
