John Lockley (1750-1829) was born at Barton Hall, once the residence of Oliver Cromwell. He occasionally ran horses at the country races; however fox-hunting was his favourite amusement. While hunting with the fox-hounds of T. Boycott, esq. he fell from his horse but re-mounted his horse gallantly to end the chase. He was rather unwell that evening and died the following day.
