***************

Robert Lockwood's parents were EDMUND LOCKWOOD, b. 02 Sep, 1574, Combs, Suffolk, England, d. 03 Mar, 1634/35, Cambridge, Massachusetts, and ALICE COWPER, b. 1573/74 in England, d. 14 Jan, 1600, Combs. Suffolk, England. They were married 03 Mar, 1591/92, in Combs, Suffolk, England.

Edmund came to New England with the JOHN WINTHROP fleet, "THE GREAT MIGRATION", arriving 18 Oct, 1630, with two sons and a daughter, Edmund, b. 09 Feb, 1594, Robert, b. 14 Jan, 1600, and Eleanor, b. 1609, all born in Combs, Suffolk, England.

The Winthrop migration began in 1628 when a group of separatist Puritans obtained a patent (license) from the Earl of Warwick, a proprietor of the New England Company, to form the Massachusetts Bay Company and establish a plantation in New England. The next year, with other members of the company, leader John Winthrop, a lawyer, signed The Cambridge Agreement, in which members vowed to emigrate if the Massachusetts Bay proprietors themselves could relocate there and take the patent with them. On 14 Mar 1629, four days after King Charles I dissolved Parliament in the dispute that would eventually lead to civil war, the King agreed to let Winthrop and the Massachusetts Bay Company relocate to New England.

In Massachusetts, Edmund Lockwood was made a freeman 18 May 1631, and lived in Newtowne (today's Cambridge) in 1632. Edmund reportedly moved south to Connecticut in 1636.

It was Richadus and Elizabeth Creswell de Lockwood's son Edmund de Lockwood who arrived in America, 18 Oct, 1630. Emigrating to New England with Edmund were his sons EDMUND, ROBERT, and a daughter, ELEANOR, and their families. The "de" in front of Lockwood was dropped.

Note: The spouse link for SUSANNAH NORMAN LOCKWOOD FERRIS on this page was created by another member. As is stated there, there were no children from her subsequent marriage to Jeffery Ferris.

The following was provided to me by Mr. Hilt on 10/3/12:

"Hope you get this four years late Gwen. Robert is my 8th GGF through Gershom. By now, you may know this but Ann Millington, Gershom's wife, is our family's direct link to the Royal House of Plantagenet (William The Conqueror - 27th GGF) and the Saxon Kings of Wessex (Alfred The Great). She was the grand daughter of Sir Gilbert Millington, a Lord in the House of Commons who signed the death warrant for King Charles I of England. Hope you get this! - Chris Lockwood Hilt"
