  • Notes 
    • John Locke ran a line of ships bringing immigrants from London to Philadelphia. He had a home near Doyhlestown, Pa. After he died, his widow married John Brandon . Later, his son Matthew Locke married his stepsister-Mary Brandon: son Frances married another stepsister, Anne Brandon (sister of Mary) and a daughter, Margaret married her stepbrother (brother of Mary and Ann), Richard Brandon. Richard Brandon and Francis both served in the Revolutionary War and Matthew also served in the US Congress and moved to Tennessee.

      Elizabeth and Ann married their stepbrothers Matthew and Francis, In 1749, the Lockes and Brandons moved to North Carolina, to Rowan and Iredell Counties, building homes in Charlotte and Salisbury where they owned much land. John, a lineal descendant of Sir William Locke, ran a line of ships bringing immigrants from London to Philadelphia. He had a home just a little north of Doylestown in a sharp curve o\\in the creek not very far from Lancaster. Sevier C ounty Family History Book, Vol. 1, 1994 page 436

      Believe he first came to America and landed in Virginia. Also believe he did maintain residence in London and Pennsylvania and his wife, Mary Elizabeth Patton, brought the family over after his death.
