MY LOCKLEY TREE

This is the research I have carried out so far on my Lockley tree which can be found in the link below.  

If there are any relatives out there that I haven’t yet had contact with then I’d love to hear from you.

Equally if anyone has more information on this tree I would love to hear from them.  

You can reach me via the CONTACT ME link on the navigation bar above

MY LOCKLEY FAMILY

It appears that a good proportion of our Lockley family came from the Stone & Gnosall areas in Staffordshire, England & were baptised in St. Michael's Church at Stone & at St Lawrence Church in Gnosall.  

Stone is a canal town midway on the Trent River and the Trent and Mersey Canal.  The canal was opened in 1771 and used to transport the raw materials to the potteries, and the finished products from the potteries.  The Genuki uk site gives a brief history of Stone, where it states that Stone is as famous for its shoes as Stafford, and now I understand why a good part of my family were in the shoe trade (and perhaps my love of shoes?).

This link will take you to the site giving details on the Workhouse in Stone

Gnosall is a large village approximately 7½ miles West of Stafford and 5 miles East of Newport.  The Shropshire Union Canal runs through Gnosall under the Newport Road.  It was referred to as Geneshalle in the Domesday Book & St Lawrence Church dates from Norman times.   In 1851 it's description was of a large and ancient village, comprising 2424 inhabitants, holding two annual fairs for the selling of livestock.  It was divided into Quarters of Gnosall, Cowley, Knightley and Moreton.  


INDIVIDUALS OF INTEREST

These have been selected by me for various reasons.  They may have just caught my interest;  there may be something special to say about them;  they may have had an interesting or eventful life or it may just be that it is my explanation of where & how I broke down the brick wall they were holding up or my plea for help with breaking down a brick wall they are part of.   Whatever my reason I hope you find them of interest.
