The Cranborne Lockyers

Thomas Lockyer of Hampreston

Thomas was the eldest child of Thomas and Catherine. He married a girl called Ann (sometimes recorded as Anne) and they had a large family. Considering the average life expectancy then, it is interesting to note that Thomas reached the age of 84 years - he died 13 August 1727. He is buried with his wife in the churchyard of All Saints Church in Hampreston, but the headstones are partly overgrown by a substantial shrub! The date of Ann's birth is derived from the inscription there.
