Albert Lock spent much of his adult life living in Abingdon where he was a well-known figure and is still remembered by some today almost 60 years after his death. Bert, as he was generally known, was born in Sutton Courtney (as it was then spelled), the third son in the family of eight of Joseph and Maria Lock, who ran the Plough public house. Joseph was a noted stonemason and sign writer while Maria was the licensee. The Locks had been a presence in the village since the mid-eighteenth century having originally come from the Faringdon area.
