WILLIAM LOCKWOOD, the first of the name to settle in this town, son of Abraham and Mary (Westcott) Lockwood, was born in Cranston RI in 1730. He came to Springfield in 1772, with his wife and ten children. He bought of Timothy Spencer lot No. 2, and of Colonel John Barrett lot No. 20, the latter including the site of the present village. He built a log cabin near the falls, and soon later a sawmill. Later he built a block house near where the late George W. Porter's residence stands. He and his sons cleared up the land, sawed lumber for buildings, and erected a gristmill on the west side of the river. Afterward he sold one half interest in the mills to his son Henry, and bought land on the east side of the river, now owned by W.H.H. Putnam, including the present cemetery ground, which he deeded to the town in 1793; it stood on the other side of the road, and was moved to its present site.   He was a member of the Free Will Baptist church and active in its organization. He was an enterprising, industrious and honest man, and to him and his descendants, Springfield owes no small part of its early and later prosperity. (History of the town of Springfield, Vermont)
