Winifred (Pride) Lockett (-1729) [3316.4]
Winifred Pride, the daughter of William Pride I, married Benjamin Lockett in Henrico County.Some think the Pride’s were Quakers and the Lockett’s may have been too. This may account for why their marriage was recorded twice in Henrico County: 25 February 1692/3, and again in 1694.
Winifred’s father conditionally transferred a large tract of land to her.She could keep the land if she had children. Benjamin inherited a property called “Scotland Hills” from his father.
In 1704 Benjamin was paying quit rents on 104 acres in Henrico County.In May 1721 he had a patent to 400 acreson Swift Creek. Benjamin was appointed to procession Puckett’s Run on 12 January 1723/24 and again in 1727. The Bristol Parish Register recorded the births of two slaves belonging to the family: Sarah on 24 March 1725/6 and Lucy on 12 May 1727.
Benjamin Locket conveyed some form of property to William Lockett and Benjamin Lockett in November 1723.
Winifred died 25 November 1729 as recorded in the Bristol Parish Register. Her husband was still living in 1730 when he conveyed some property to his children: “Negro girl Hannah” to Benjamin Jr. , “Negro girl Lucy,” feather bed and furniture, four head of cattle, and a horse and mare to Deborah , “Negro girl Sarah” to Martha Walthall , and “Negro woman named Tabb” to Jane Haskins.
Henrico County charge Benjamin Lockett on 3 levys and his 105 acres in 1736.Benjamin was probably dead before 1739 when the churchwardens of Dale Parish bound out Thomas Lesser to Benjamin Lockett, no longer distinguished as “Jr.”
