    Notes:

    Name:
    "Descendants of Robert Lockwood - Colonial and Revolutionary History of the Lockwood Family in America" states a correction as follows regarding Joseph Lockwood:

    8080 - C.L.J., hartford Times, Jan. 4, 1941. LOCKWOOD-BETTS-CHICHESTER-TUTTLE. I hasten to correct important errors appearing in his inquiry for the benefit of any who may be misled thereby. "Robert W. Lockwood" should read simply "Robert Lockwood". "Mar. prob. twice" should read "mar. Susannah Norman" only.
    Everything in this inquiry regarding Robert (1) Lockwood and Jonathan (2) Lockwood should be disregarded as far as any direct connection with the stated generations that follow in the inquiry are concerned. JOSEPH(3) LOCKWOOD who married Elizabeth Ayres, and second, Margery Webb, was of Stamford and WAS NOT the son of Jonathan Lockwood of Greenwich but of Edmund Lockwood of Stamford and his wife Hannah.
    JOSEPH LOCKWOOD of Stamford was not a grandson of Robert Lockwood of Watertown and Fairfield, but of Robert's elder brother EDMUND LOCKWOOD of Cambridge. The error of naming Joseph Lockwood of Stamford as a son of Jonathan of Greenwich may be charged to Bolton's Hist. of Westchester Co. and Holden's Lockwood Family (1883).
