NOT included is the surname Rockwood which occurred a total of 357 times in the census years 1851 to 1901 and for which there exists at least 101 Birth, Marriage and Death records. There is still the possibility that one or more Lockwoods may have been transcribed as a Rockwood.

There are also 4 Packwoods in the 1861 census that are definitely Lockwoods from Fam001.

The information has been obtained from the following sources:-

Where information for a particular census year is taken from two sites, the data may not be the same. This is because the entries may have been indexed incorrectly or information has yet to be indexed. Where one site has a higher number of Lockwoods then the other, I have used the higher number until I have investigated further.
