Hi Richard,

Possibly this Henry LOCKSTONE was related to James LOCKSTONE, weaver, who
was made a Bristol Burgess on 22nd. October 1739, his qualification being
that his father, William LOCKSTONE, weaver, was a Bristol Burgess. William
LOCKSTONE was made a Bristol Burgess on 31st. January 1705.

James LOCKSTONE, weaver, Tiverton was listed in the Country Voices section
of the Bristol Poll Book of 1754. Tiverton was another way of spelling
Twerton.

Henry LOCKSTONE may have been related to John LOCKSTONE, a weaver of
London, who was also in the Country Voices section of the 1754 Bristol Poll
Book.

James LOCKSTONE, weaver, Twerton, was in the Somerset section of the
Bristol Poll Book of 1774.
