Welcome to the blog of Trevor Locke, writer.

I write about my poetry. I spent a weeking working on my poems and found it a very valuable experience.
Climbing the family tree
Genealogy fascinates me. For many, many years I have been researching my ancestors, digging up dead relatives, spending countless hours on websites looking for lost cousins, pushing out along the branches in search of people I never knew existed; it all appeals to my sense of history.
I have gone back as far as the databases will all allow; to the late 18th century. I found several generations of the Locke family; nearly all of them lived in the English county of Hampshire. Simple folk who lived by their hands, craftsmen and artisans, they were typical of the people who populated villages at that time, in the South of England.
I have written up my findings in a blog – well, I would, wouldn’t I?
Oh yes, and, unlike this blog, it has pictures.
