Excerpt from The Life of Joseph Locke: Civil Engineer, M. P. F. R. S. Etc. Etc
Locke was, indeed, William Locke's son. Of the father of the latter we know no more than that, whilst himself manager of a coal-mine at White-lane, in the neighbourhood of Sheffield, he was suffici... ently esteemed and possessed sufficient interest to be able to procure for one of his sons, John Locke, the appointment of manager of a colliery at Kipa, a village situated some six or seven miles from Leeds. In this colliery John Locke ultimately became a partner. That his reputation and in¿uence remained unimpaired, we are enabled to gather from the fact that a few years later he obtained for his other son, William, the father of Joseph Locke, a similar situation at Attercliffe, in the neighbourhood of Sheffield.
