Locker, William, naval officer, was born in 1731, and entered the navy in 1746. He was made commander in 1762, and captain in 1768; and while commanding the Lowestoft in the West Indies he had as one of his lieutenants Nelson. After much further service he hoisted a broad pennant in 1792 as commander-in-chief at the Nore, but early in the year following received the more congenial appointment of Lieutenant-Governor of Greenwich Hospital. There he died at the end of 1800.
