  • There has been an impression on the minds of a few individuals that there was another Locke at Hampton or in the vicinity, at an early period. In 1810, May 10, Jonathan and David Locke made the following deposition, which is preserved at Rye.
  • "This may certify to whom it may concern, that the following genealogy of the ancestors, in substance as followeth, hath been told unto us by our forefathers, the truth to which we attest to, viz. : 1st, We say that Jonathan Palmer, deceased, was the son and lawful heir to Christopher Palmer and Elizabeth Palmer.
  • 2d. Christopher Palmer's wife Elizabeth, was daughter and lawful heir to William and Judith Berry.
  • 3d. William Berry's wife Judith was daughter and lawful heir to the Locke and his wife who came from England, said Locke's wife's name before marriage was Hermins, and she brought with her into New England a coat of arms, so called, which referred to John Hermins. William Berry's wife Judith was daughter and lawful heir to Nathaniel Locke and his wife, whose name previous to marriage was Hermins."
  • The facts here stated are not wholly to be relied on. The records of Rye show that Christopher Palmer m. Elizabeth Locke, July 24, 1705, and that their son, Jonathan was b. May 16, 1707. How William Berry and his wife Judith became mixed up in the story I know not, but think it is possible that Judith, the wife of William Berry, was the wid. of Nathaniel Locke, and the mother by said Locke of Elizabeth Locke, who m. Christopher Palmer.
  • The records of Portsmouth give evidence that there was a Nathaniel Locke there in 1672.
  • "Mh. 4 & 5, 1672, Nathaniel Locke did two days work on Highways at Great Island" (New Castle) and Sep. 30, 1672, a noate was drawn on Henry Dering for Nathaniel Locke for six shillings." Another record is "At a meeting of the Selectmen this 5th March 1674-5, upon motion made by Widow Locke to live in the school house on the Great Island in order to the teaching of children to read and sew, have granted her desire." Was she not the wid. of Nathaniel before mentioned? I will only add, that tradition says that the other Locke (not

  • John) left no sons. John and Nathaniel were probably brothers, and perhaps were the sons of John Locke, of London, who m. Christian French, July 26, 1624, and had John, b. Sep. 16, 1627, and Nathaniel, b. Nov. 11, 1629.
  • I have endeavored to arrange the following account of the descendants of Capt. Locke in the best manner possible from the materials which I have been able to obtain. It is very probable that some errors may be found. The imperfect records that have been received do not enable me to place, with an absolute certainty, each individual in the family to which he belongs. I hope my namesakes of New Hampshire will give me credit for what I have done, rather than find fault for what I have not done.
    • [ When no STATE is named, NEW HAMPSHIRE is understood.]
  • 1 Capt. JOHN LOCKE, m. ELIZABETH BERRY, dau. of William, of Portsmouth, about 1652. There is no record to be found of the births of his chil. but from a deposition made by his son John, (who was prob. the eldest) in 1729, he, John, Jr. was b. about 1654, and at the settlement of the estate of the father, the chil. are named in the order in which I place them below. He was killed as before stated, Aug. 26, 1696 ; his wid. was living, Feb. 1707.

    • 5 Alice, or Else, b. ; was living in 1708, by some it has been supposed that she was the wf. of Nehemiah Berry, who m. Alice Locke, Mh, 14, 1714, but this last Alice it is now supposed was a grand dau. of John, Sen.
