Our Annual Reunions
We hold an annual reunion to celebrate the family's accomplishments every year traditionally on the third Saturday in August to commemorate the death of our progenitor, Captain John Locke. This is usually in Rye, New Hampshire. We have done this since our founding without fail, even through two world wars. Over 300 cousins attended our 100th reunion and over 100 cousins commemorated the 300th anniversary of the death of our ancestor, Captain John Locke in 1996.
Why Hold Reunions?
Of course, there are the usual reasons but we have had significant experiences at our reunions. On two separate occasions cousins who thought they were orphans with no family connections, found their second, third and fourth cousins at a reunion! A nine year old who thought he had a small family arrived to find a room full of cousins. This opened his mind to a broader world. It was an experience he never forgot and which helped influence his career choice.

Our next annual reunion is slated to be held in Nova Scotia in August of 2018. Stay tuned here and on our Facebook page/group for news as we get closer.
