Work in Progress
The purpose of this page is to provide a home for
material which is somewhat tentative or incomplete. It may
also be used to pose questions about possible connections, or
about 'missing persons' or 'strays' who don't seem to fit into
any of our current trees.

All Family Trees have to start somewhere, and
it is often not as far back in time as living members of the trees
would like. Lovelock and Loveluck Family Trees are no different in
this respect, but sometimes there are tempting glimpses of what
'might have been'.
Please follow this link to
read about the theories and associated research that apply to
attempts to extend some of our trees and fragments back in time.
This section describes
projects which should help to fill some of the gaps in our
records. Volunteers are sought to help with the work of
extracting or transcribing records.
- A Fragment linking the Lovelocks of
Wanborough and Highworth in Wiltshire was proposed by John
Lewis on 31 Oct 2012. As indicated at the head of the fragment,
John noted that there was no direct evidence to link
the William born in Wanborough in 1593 with the man married in
Highworth in 1610 and 1624, so this remains a matter of
Parish Records Project
objective of this project is to complete the collections of
"Lovelocks by Parish" for different counties. Robert Sterry
has done a magnificent job of compiling collections for a
number of counties, with input from a large number of
fellow-contributors, but we have by no means complete
collections for all of these counties, and there are still
(January 2017) four of the old (pre-1900) counties of England
for which we have not a single Lovelock event record:
Cumberland, Huntingdonshire, Nottinghamshire and Westmorland.
That may be because there are none to find, but it would be
nice to know!
sources now provide access to relatively large amounts of
genealogical data, we have not yet (October 2016) embarked on
any large scale analyses of any of that data as it affects or
refers to Lovelocks. A start has been made, however, and the
results of reviews of Adult and Infant Deaths, of Registered
Births, and of National Probate Calendar data can be accessed here.
Suggestions for other analyses are most welcome, and these can be
submitted through the Lovelock Mailing list: firstname.lastname@example.org

Bill Lovelock (Wilfred M. Lovelock) provided the
following photographs with this note:
"I have 3 photos of
an Arthur Lovelock", says Bill. "He does not appear in the
"Family Photo" above as being a son of James Lovelock, but
perhaps he was a cousin. My Auntie in Essex (who died in 1998)
immediately identified him as "Uncle Arthur" in the photo below
left, with two of James Lovelock's sons who were actually her
The other two photos below are obviously of the same Arthur
Lovelock as an older man posing with his new bride.

Bob Hossack provided the following photograph with this note:
"The lady at the far left back row is Jessica Lovelock (b.1890,
Bethnal Green) and the lady kneeling in front of her is Minnie
Lovelock (b.1880, Haggerstone). They were the sisters of Ellen
Lydia Lovelock, who was my great grandmother. Ellen's eldest son
Frederick Peter Ingarfield was my grandfather and his wife, Betty
(Ellen's posthumous daughter-in-law), is the lady in the middle
holding the arm of the young man in the dark jacket (who is
Betty's brother). So, I know the names of the three standing on
the left and the one kneeling on the left, but the three standing
to the right, and the two girls kneeling next to Minnie, are a
mystery to me. I'm guessing they are Lovelocks, but can't be

A potential addition to the
Crime and Punishment page
This theft would have occurred after 1901 when he was still listed
in the Census as a victualler, presumably in the Tally Ho Public
House which his mother had inherited on his father's death.
Marty's family know the pub was sold to a brewery some time before
1916, so they assume that Thomas then worked at the Bank in some
accounting capacity as he had been schooled in that field.
Here's the dilemma: Marty is unable to identify that such a theft
took place. He has searched the British Newspaper Archives from
1900 and found no reference, but wonders if the Bank may not have
publicly acknowledged such activities. Thomas does not appear in
the 1911 census so it seems quite possible that he had left the
country, yet Marty is unable to find him among the passenger lists
which he is able to search (but then, as a fugitive, he may have
adopted an alias or possibly departed from a port on the
Continent). Marty can also not find a record of him entering
Does anyone have any suggestions on how this family mystery might
