Location: Ventura County, California
Named after the nearby Lockwood Valley, especially "the narrows" of Lockwood Creek. These were first identified by Tom Newby in a report on the mining situation in the Ventura County back country: "these ledges are near the placer mines which were worked some two years by one Lockwood". There was a George M. Lockwood who served the Wheeler Survey as a clerk while it mapped this area, but it is not known if this is the same individual.
Name first appears in the May 17, 1873 Ventura Signal.
Name of benchmark first appears on AMS Lockwood Valley topo (1943).
Peak was added to the HPS Peak List in 1961.
