Hi' i'm trying to find out the maiden name of my ggf john Lockwood's mother. the only info i have is that john was born in 1864 and he married clara Lizzie Norburn in 1889 in Sheffield, His father was also called John but i don't know who this John Married. i have looked on GRO and it says Mother's name is Porter but i can't find a marriage between Lockwood and Porter, it really doesn't help when i don't have a DOB or date of marriage. sorry if this sounds confusing ? Any Help or advice will be gratefully received
Is your ggf the one on the 1871 census at Cumberland Street? He is
with widowed father John, born Tickhill.
Q3 1852 Sheffield, Charles Lockwood married Eliza Porter. According to GRO they had lots of children including twins. And including John in 1864.
Hi Dave,thanks but john's father was also called john not Charles
Hi Moira i'm not sure about that, i'm trying to find out what his mother's maiden name was.
on GRO it says Porter but i'm not 100 % sure.
Ann, it is almost certain that the John Lockwood born 1864 was the son of Charles Lockwood and His wife Eliza nee Porter.
The marriage certificate of John jnr in 1889 to Clara Lizzie names his father John, and father's occupation is Brewer.
The age of John on the marriage certificate is 24 so born 1865.
This is the 1881 census at 11 Charles Lane
John Lockwood Head Widower Male 58 1823 Brewers Laborer Tickhill
John Lockwood Son Single Male 16 1865 Shearmakers Laborer (Cutler) Dinnington,
Elizabeth Lockwood Daughter Single Female 22 1859 - Tickhill, Yorkshire,
Henry Lockwood Son Single Male 10 1871 Scholar Sheffield, Yorkshire,
So John jnr was born in Dinnington.
The birth is registered in Worksop in March q of 1865. Mother's maiden name is given as MACHINT
Thank you Angela, that info is very useful .
Thanks Dave, i miss typed the year
John Lockwood baptised 11 Feb 1864 at St. John the Baptist, Throapham,
Parents - John and Ann of Dinnington, labourer.
(Throapham is between Dinnington and Laughton-en-le-Morthen).
John Lockwood baptised 27 April 1823 at Tickhill, parents - Isaac and Sarah,
Marriage, 3 Sep 1844, Sheffield Parish Church.
John Lockwood, 21, farmer of Park, father - Isaac Lockwood, farmer.
Ann Burchby, 22, of Park, father - Geo. Burchby, labourer.
Ann Burchby baptised 16 June 1822 Throapham. Parents - George and Sarah
of Gilding Wells, labourer.
In 1851 John and Ann are living at West Gate, Doncaster.
In 1861 they are living at Maltby.
In 1871 at Cumberland Street, Sheffield. (John is now a widower).
In 1851 Ann gives her place of birth as Gildingwells, Notts.
Gildingwells is roughly half way between Dinnington and Carlton in Lindrick.
Living with widowed John Lockwood senior in 1871 there is a Sarah Machin. I think she is the mother of John Lockwood born 1865.
John Lockwood b.1823-the father- has older children.
William, Sarah A, Thomas and Elizabeth. Their mother was Ann Burchby.
Ann Lockwood nee Burchby probably died Mar 1863 Rotherham 9c 321
Hope this helps
I think this is the burial of the Ann Lockwood you found.
Ann Lockwood aged 40yrs,of Sandbeck, buried at Letwell 1 February 1863.
(Letwell is not far from Dinnington).
Henry Lockwood Machin, bap 30 Sep 1873 at St. Simon, Eyre St.
Mother - Sarah of 10 court Porter Street.
Is it possible that Ann Lockwood died after giving birth to John and that John was not baptised until the following year? The six year gap seem rather a long time between John baptised in 1864 and Henry Lockwood Machin born in 1870.
Angela T found this birth
John Lockwood Mar 1865 Worksop 7b 40 mothers maiden name Machint
I think this might be linked with the Sarah Machin on the 1871 census.
