Wiltshire Lovelock Family Trees


Based on the pioneering work of the late Gwen Eastment and of Graham Lovelock, and using the "Lovelocks by Parish" collection, we have built up a number of Lovelock trees and fragments for Wiltshire. The following table summarises the most substantial of these and includes links (in the 'Tree Name' column) to the corresponding Descendant Trees. There are also links, in the 'Progenitor' column, to the corresponding individual using the Webtrees tool (LovelockTrees), which allows you to browse the whole tree and provides more information than the Descendant Tree. There are also links to the corresponding gedcom file.

Note: the gedcom file at LovelockTrees is always our most up-to-date version of a tree so is recommended as your first port of call.

* Note: Although the Tangley Tree can be considered as a Hampshire Tree it has also been included in the Wiltshire Trees because it contains links to the Lieflock Line.

** Note: Includes Spicer-Lovelocks

Note that the figures, which correspond to data as of the date indicated, are approximate and may change as the tree is modified or added to. The number of entries can differ significantly from the number of Lovelocks, depending on how many female branches are pursued. Thus, the number of Lovelocks in a tree is probably a better metric than the total number of entries. The statistics are for descendant trees of the progenitors, which do not include, for example, ancestors of spouses.

Dynamic Browsing of the Wiltshire Trees

You can browse the Wiltshire Trees through the Lovelock Webtrees portal. Webtrees is a tool for dynamic visualisation of genealogy data on a Web site. Essentially all the available data is accessible, including not only direct descendants of the progenitor of one of the trees, but any individuals to which the descendants are related in any way. In addition, all aspects of the data can be examined, including source references, notes, etc.

There are three Webtrees databases for the Wiltshire Trees

Details for the Different Trees

The Lieflock Line

The most complete tree which we have built up is The Lieflock Line, starting from Richard Lieflock (Lovelock), who was probably born about 1680 and died in 1760, and extending to this century. This tree builds on a number of fragments, in particular for Burbage, Easton Royal, Great Bedwyn and Milton Lilbourne, but also includes additional data from Robert Sterry, Graham Lovelock, and from Gwen Eastment and others concerning Australian Lovelock emigrants, together with numerous other contributions on specific branches.

The elaboration of the Lieflock Line has been the subject of extensive correspondence between a number of people, and you will find some of the details in the Update History of the Lieflock Line. However, this update history only covers the period up to March 2005, after which details of updates to the Lieflock Line, and other trees, can be found on the What's New page, or in the Log Files for less recent updates.

Details for Remaining Trees

Cholderton: This tree was originally added to the website under the title of the 'Stinchcombe Gloucestershire Tree', but subsequent analysis of Parish Register data showed that the presumed progenitor of that tree had been baptised in West Cholderton Parish in Wiltshire, so the name has been changed to reflect that.

Collingbourne Kingston: Some of the material in this tree was originally contained in the Cholderton Tree, but subsequently determined to be a separate branch of Lovelocks.

Luckington: This tree begins with an Unknown Lovelock whose family included at least two children - a son named John and a daughter named Ann. We do not know when they were born, although John's Will, in which they are named, is dated 2 August 1707 and was probated on 7 November 1707. The Tree is actually a combination of two Fragments based in Gloucestershire - the Bitton and the Tormarton with West Littleton Fragments - with substantial additional and earlier data from Wiltshire records, which came to light as a result of the availability of the Will of John Lovelock, the son of John above, who died at Bitton in 1771. The tree contains 129 individuals, of whom 68 are Lovelocks, and was first added to the website on 28 October 2014.

Lyneham: This tree first appeared as Fragment 15 of the updated collection of Lovelock family tree fragments.
and was later extended using data from Catherine Lovelock and material from Susan Lovelock, in particular links to Wroughton, Etchilhampton and Bishops Cannings fragments. In Nov 2004, the Nevada Lovelocks tree, previously a separate tree including information from Chris Knight, Richard Dowd and Jack Lovelock, was connected to the Lyneham Line, via  Daniel L (bap 3 Mar 1793 at Compton Bassett).

Lyneham 2: On 13-Dec-02 I added a first version of this tree as Fragment 16 of the updated collection of Lovelock family tree fragments. This version included material provided by John Gough and Samuel Lovelock.



Tangley Tree: This tree (previously known as "The Hampshire Line") was provided by Graham Lovelock and was first included in the original compilation of Lovelock family tree fragments as Fragment 10.


Wiltshire-Cornwall Tree provided by Leonard Robert Lovelock, Graham Lovelock and Jeremy Lovelock.
There is also a corresponding gedcom file.
First version: 18-Jan-06. Updated 11-Jul-06 to include additional details provided by Graham Lovelock. See What's New file for details.

Wootton Rivers:

Wootton Rivers 2: From information provided by Kathleen Pearson, Graham Lovelock constructed a tree which on 26-Dec-03 was first included as Fragment 19 of the updated collection of Lovelock family tree fragments and known as the Marlborough Tree. Research by Alyson Lovelock showed that the progenitor of the tree was a member of the Wootton Rivers 2 fragment, and on 11 Feb 2012 the two were merged.

Wroughton/Tidcombe: Submitted by Graham Lovelock and first added to the Web site 5-Oct-04; an updated version was provided by Graham on 30-Nov-04.
Graham also provided  an annotated version of this tree (PDF format) which includes comments and supporting evidence.
