I am looking for information of James Lock born 1782 in England. I believe he may have died 1824. He was married to Susannah Harding born 1782 in Baker, Lechlade, Gloucestershire, England. She died 26 Dec in St Lawrence, Lechlade, Gloucestershire, England. They had 5 children Elizabeth 1815, Joseph 1817, James 1819, Ann Lock (my great grandmother who was married to Thomas Langsford 1818-1887) 1821-1889 and Sarah Lock 1822.
Any information would be helpful as to his occupation, cause of death, on either James, Susannah or any of their children.

Not sure if this is any help...

FreeREG has the marriage and cites the witnesses as:

"Witness One Forename William
Witness One Surname ROOM
Witness Two Forename James
Witness Two Surname CLOUD"

Hi Amanda

Yeah, I'd found the 1809 marriage and wondered why their 1st child was b. 1815, with those births you found and the death of a James 1814 probably accounts for that..

Geoff


I thought the same thing Geoff so I thought I would have a browse and see what I could come up with. Looks like they moved from Bristol to Lechlade :rolleyes:
