Locks from Aller, Somerset
Posted by: Kevin Lock (ID *****0927) Date: April 24, 2003 at 10:08:42

Does anyone have any information on the Lock family from Aller in Somerset.

My dad (Arthur "John" Lock b.1937) told me that my grandfather (Arthur Douglas Lock b. c1910) and great-grandfather (Percival "Percy" Lock b.1877) both came from here, and he remembers his grandfather's brother (Walter Lock) had a farm called Bath House Farm, in the village.

After a bit of research, I have discovered that my grandfather had 2 brothers called Walter & Frederick, and my great-grandfather had 3 brothers called Charles b.1880, Frederick b.c1886 & Walter b.c1888. I've also since found out that their father was a Reuben Lock b.1852 who married Emma (Maiden name unknown) b.1852.

My grandfather, Arthur Douglas Lock, married Dorothy Hole, and my great-grandfather, Percival Lock, married Mary (Maiden name unknown) b.c1874, who died in 1974 aged over 100!

Apart from the information gathered above, I seem to keep hitting a dead end, so if there is anyone else out there who can help me, or recognises any of the names mentioned above, I would be most grateful to hear from you.

Regards,
Kevin John Lock
