Probably an English import lock, typically made in Birmingham. Sometimes these locks were marked with the lock makers name, but quite often they were marked with the importer's name, a hardware merchant's name, or in some instances a gun maker's name.

Your lock looks like it has spent some time buried. It exhibits more corrosion than one would expect on a gun. The lock bolt also appears to have been broken with a small portion still in the lock plate.
