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.

Between twenty and thirty conference attendees stopped by our table at the New England Regional Genealogical Conference 2019 last week! A few of our conversations turned into extended consultations where we dug into the 3 volumes of the genealogy that we had on hand.
