The Lockwoods came to Massachusetts with Gov. Winthrop's fleet, 10 years after the Mayflower. The 400 new arrivals could not stay in Salem because there was not enough fresh water, so they started a new settlement called Boston. There were Lockwoods involved in the witch trials, Indian fights, rafting down the Ohio River to new settlements in the west, the "49-ers gold rush", and patriots in every war.
