  • In a note on page 343, I commented on the statement made in the Gentleman's Magazine, that Michael Locke, the Father of Mathew of Pensford, was a younger Brother of Sir William, while other authorities had spoken of him as a son of Sir William. The principal reason that has influenced my opinion in favor the the statement in the Gent. Mag. is that the Michael Locke who was son of Sir William had three sons, Zachary, Benjamin, and Eleazer, and several daus., and that although these three sons speak of each other and their sisters in their wills, no mention is made of a bro. Matthew. On this Hypothesis, the descent of Matthew is represented by the dotted line.
