Edward Lockwood M.A., third son of Richard Lockwood and Matilda Vernon, rector of Hanwell in Oxfordshire and of St Peters in the town of Northampton, who died January 22nd 1802 in the eighty second year of his age.His second son, Edward Lockwood Percival Esquire having sustained with the resignation and fortitude which became him as a Christian and as a man the protracted sufferings of a severe and painful illness, departed this life July 6th 1804.June 15th 1790, he married Louisa Bridger 2nd daughter of the late Lord George Manners Sutton, of Kelham in the county of Nottingham, youngest son of John the 3rd Duke of Rutland and by her, who died February 5th 1800, left four surviving children viz: Edward George Harvey, Louisa Elizabeth and Frances Lucy, whereof George Harvey born February 1st 1793 captain in his Majesty's coldstream regiment of footguards, followed his excellent parents November 11th 1815, and was interred with his father and grandfather in the vault of his family in the chancel; he was not more respected in the public duties of his profession than respectable and beloved in the endearing intercourse of domestic life. Those who knew him best will bear the readiest testimony to the merits of his character and will join his sorrowing relations in deploring their early and untimely loss.Into thy hands I commend my spirit: for thou hast redeemed me, o Lord, thou God of Truth. Psalm 31 verse 6th [should be 5].
