In response to Peter Lakeman's request, I am re-posting details of my
interest in the name:
Prior to her marriage to my gtgtgrfather, my gtgtgrmother (Elizabeth
MATTHEWS) was first married to Nicholas LAKEMAN, and I am trying to discover
if there are any descendants of their children, who were:
Ann (I have no details but she is named in his will)
Elizabeth, bap Modbury 10 July 1795, bur Modbury 21 June 1816
John, bap Modbury 15 Dec 1797
Nicholas, bap Modbury 26 Sep 1800, bur Modbury 22 Oct 1815
Sarah, bap Modbury 14 Sep 1804
Edward Matthews, bap Modbury 21 Nov 1806, bur Modbury 6 Oct 1876. (He did
I would also like to trace descendants, if any, of an Ann Lakeman, daughter
of William Lakeman, who married William Moore EDWARDS at Plymouth Register
Office on 7 Aug 1861. Their children were:
William Alfred Edwards, bap Wembury 18 Apr 1862
Amelia Ann Edwards, bap Wembury 25 Mar 1864
Good luck to all Lakeman researchers.

Taking the advice of Peter Lakeman, I am posting my specific Lakeman
interest. My mother is a Lakeman. I have traced back this side of my
family tree to Edward Lakeman, who came to Australia on the "Catherine
Stewart Forbes" in 1825, with Governor Darling, serving as his pistillion
(coachman). This information is from the 1828 Census of NSW. It would
seem he was born about 1804. I have no idea where he came from, or even
how to find out. The IGI identifies possible Edward Lakemans, but how can
I know which is the correct one? Does anyone have an Edward who matches
above information .... I would love to hear from you.
PS I am still fairly vague on the Lakemans in Australia (not Peter
Lakeman's branch unfortunately), so if there is anyone who knows Lakeman
information (based predominently around Parramatta), I would also like to
share information with you.
Hello LAKEMAN Listers,
I just thought I would let you know that there are currently about 20
subscribers on the LAKEMAN list. (A small but 'rare' group of researchers.)
Some of you have been on the list since the start, but others have joined
more recently and may not have seen the early subscriber's introductory posts.
For those that have joined recently, for those that have never posted, and
for those LUCKY ones (sigh) that have made breakthroughs, it may be helpful
if we all repost our interests to try and make those new connections.
So I am starting a roll-call, and ask everyone to repost the basic
information about their LAKEMAN ancestors such as locality and time frames.
This was done some 6 months ago, and it is my intention repeat it every 6
As an example, in my case it would be as simple as
'Lakemans from around Cornwood, Devon, England in the 1820s and at
Coombeinteignhead, Devon (1850-1880+), and then in north-east Victoria,
Australia from c1865 onwards.'
Supply enough information so that other readers can decide whether there is
a possibility of a connection and can pursue that possibility with you
either on-line or off-line.
If you want to supply more information, do so, but please put a summary at
the top of your post.
Also, please make the subject of your post something like 'Roll call -
[localities]' e.g. in my case it is
'Roll Call - Devon, England'.
If anybody is shy in directly posting their info, or is unsure how to, get
in touch with me, and I'll either help you or do it for you.
Hope this helps.
My ggrandfather was Patrick Lockman (Loughman,Loakman,Lakeman) born about
1860 in Naas, Kildare, Ireland. His father was Patrick and mother MaryAnne
Grady (Brady). Can't find any records on him. I Believe the spelling of the
name was changed when they came to the US in the 1870's.
