NOTE: The 7 April 1861 Census described Mary Ann Lockwood as being three years old on that date. Also listed as three years of age was Harriet Lockwood [3], believed to be her twin sister. 


Mary Ann Lockwood [2] was the seventh of the 11 children born to John William Lockwood and Sarah Cuthbert and believed to be the twin sister of Harriet Lockwood. She was born in 1857 in St George in the East, London E1.


Mary Ann was listed as living with her parents in the Philip Street, London E1 family home at the time of the 1861 and 1871 Census forms. In the July-September quarter of 1879 a Mary Ann Lockwood was registered as having married a William Garnham in the London City district. The bride, almost certainly, was the daughter of John William Lockwood.


Supporting this is an 1891 Census record for 19 Philip Street, home to a family whose name was entered as “Garnum”. Head of the Garnum family was William, born “about 1853”, his wife Mary Ann, born “about 1856” and their daughters Rebecca, 9, and Grace, 11 months. Next door at number 17 were living Sarah Lockwood, her daughter Elizabeth Lockwood and Grandson Edward Lockwood.


No 1881 Census documentation appears to exist for either this Garnham or Garnum family. However, tying the two families together are the results of the 1901 Census conducted at 86 Gough Street , Poplar. Head of the household was Sarah Lockwood, then listed as 80, her 55 years old son John Lockwood and 10 years old grand-daughter Grace Garnham.


Mary Ann and William are believed to have had six children: Rebecca Isabel Garnham (1882), Mary Ann E Garnham (1883), Sarah Garnham (1886), William George Garnham (1888), Grace G Garnham (1890) and Benjamin Garnham (1892). Of these, only Rebecca and Grace are confirmed as having survived to adulthood.


Rebecca Isabel Garnham married William Turner in October-December 1909. The couple had a daughter, Rebecca G Turner, registered in July-September 1911. Grace G Garnham married John G Legrand in the July-September quarter of 1913.
