Replying to line E>  Memberensi Locke was born Boswell in 1788.  She died 3/23/1869.  Her father was Henry Peri Boswell and her mother was Jane Boswell born Lepeny.

Matthew Locke was born in 1785 and died 2/1/1871.  His father was Henry Locke born 1744 and died 1811.  His mother was Sarah Locke born Peters.  She was born in 1745.  Matthews paternal grandparents were George Locke, born 1724 died 1764, and Sarah Lock, possibly born Morris.

Is is possible that Jane Lepeny was actually Lepeny Draper? I found this marriage record on FamilySearch.org.

Matthew Locke was born in 1785 and died 2/1/1871. His father was Henry Locke born 1744 and died 1811. His mother was Sarah Locke born Peters.  She was born in 1745.  Matthews paternal grandparents were George Locke, born 1724 died 1764, and Sarah Lock, possibly born Morris.

Matthew Lock's parents were certainly called Henry and Sarah, but Henry was still alive in 1815 when Matthew's sister Unity was married in Chedworth, Glos.  See the newspaper report dated 16 November 1815.  (I am descended from Lavinia, one of the unmarried daughters mentioned.)

There was another couple called Henry & Sarah Lock in South Cerney, but they seem to be settled there, and are clearly not travellers.  They had several children baptised there, and there is no indication in the parish registers that they were travellers.  It is this Henry Lock who married Sarah Peters in South Cerney in 1775 and died there in 1811.  I do not think they are the parents of Matthew and Unity.
