Profile

Full name Arthur Lockett
Born 11 March 1877 in Alsagers Bank, Audley, Newcastle-under-Lyme, Staffordshire [registered in Newcastle-under-Lyme, June 1877].

Census Notes

According to the 1881 census, Arthur is the fourth of five children to William and Hannah, living at Alsagers Bank in Audley. His father is a coal miner.

According to the 1891 census, Arthur, now a coal miner too, has two more sisters, but remains one of six children still at home at Alsagers Bank.

According to the 1901 census, Arthur, a 24 year-old professional footballer, is just one of two children still at home at Alsagers Bank with their parents..

According to the 1911 census, Arthur, 34, remains a professional footballer, now married to Bertha. They have five children, Arthur William, Richard Thomas, Eva Alice, Irene and Alice. They live at 51 Durban Road East in Watford.

Married to Bertha Gwilliam [registered in Newcastle-under-Lyme, September 1902].
Died early 1954, before 11 March, aged 77 years x days [registered in Barton, Lancashire, March 1954].
Death notes The original death date, as reported by Doug Lamming as 1957 is clearly wrong, the death registration found in 1957 is that of an 82 year old.  The only death registration that can be attributed to this Arthur Lockett is the one found in early 1954.  There is another, died in Salford in the summer of 1938, as a 61 year-old. Plausible!
Height/Weight 5' 8", 11st. 7lbs [1903].
