Heathcliff is described as "a dark skinned gypsy, in aspect, in dress and manners a gentleman"
In regard to Lockwood; he can afford to vacation on the coast where he fell in love; he wishes to remove himself from society (in order to mend a broken heart); he looks down on Heathcliff's sloven appearance, and he wears a signet ring. Thus, we can assume he's from the upper class based upon the information we read in Chapter One.
