“The line of the ancestry of this family may be distinctly traced as far back as 1441. At this period we find Sir Allan Lockhart of Cleghorn.  Sir Allan was succeeded by his son Stephen.” [Douglas’ Baronage, 1798]

Another Sir Alan Lockhart is recorded as the 4th of Lee 1445, succeeding his father Alexander Lockhart of Lee.  Charter records including the name of Sir Alan Lockhart of Lee were dated 1445, 1446, and 1467.  Sir Alan Lockhart of Lee married Margaret Lockhart of Bar and had two children, Mungo and James. [DB]  See LOCKHARTS of LEE.

These two separately listed men lived in the same era and in the same county–the Lee near Lanark couldn’t be more than five miles from Cleghorn, both in Lanarkshire.  Both men are said to have charters recorded with the Register of Newbattle, and they’re both named Alan Lockhart.  No record has been found that might reveal their relationship.  I have speculated that these two men are one and the same, but that is all it is–speculation.  I do not include my speculation in the following–instead, I have followed the records of Douglas’ Baronage of 1798, beginning with Sir Allan Lockhart of Cleghorn, and pieced together the many different records I have found.

“The old castle is reputed to have the arms and bearing of 10 generations of the family engraved in the then Great Hall (that’s about 200 years worth of Lockharts).” [Richard Eliott Lockhart of Cleghorn, year 2000.]  The House of Cleghorn is no longer standing–destroyed by fire sometime after 1740.  “There was a very large room, on the ceiling of which were in fresco all the coats-of-arms of the family.”  [Told by a daughter of Lockhart of Cleghorn and documented in the Lockhart of Cleghorn Family Manuscript.]  “The family of Cleghorn is very old.  The antiquities were not only handed down to us by tradition, but by old paintings in the House of Cleghorn, done in the time of Sir Stephen Lockhart, who lived in the reigns of James III [reign: 1460-1488] and James IV [r:1488-1513], where the arms of his predecessors and their ladies, for ten generations upwards, are there illuminate.”  [Lawson Collections, dated 1706]  [The Lockhart of Cleghorn Family Manuscript]

• 8th of Cleghorn 1627.

• Son of Alexander Lockhart (of Cleghorn 1623) and Nicholas Maxwell.

+ m. 11 Nov 1627, Elizabeth LOCKHART, eldest daughter of James Lockhart of Lee, one of the Senators of the College of Justice. [DB]

• 1627 July 4–James obtained a charter under the great seal for the lands of Cleghorn. [DB]

• 1644–James was appointed one of the Committee of War for the county.  [Act Parl., VI., 132],  [UWL]

• A more loyal and self-sacrificing cavalier than James Lockhart of Cleghorn is not to be found in the annals of Scotland, taking an active part in every attempt made to support the Royal cause. He joined Montrose, in consequence of which he had to make a quasi-submission to the Presbytery of Lanark. [UWL]

• 1646–In the records of that body there occurs an entry on 1 May 1646, in the following terms: “The qlk day compeared James Lockhart of Cleghorne, and being found to have frequented James Grahame’s leagie; to have been singularly active for executing his commissiones and advancing his service, and captain of a troupe, and governour of Lanark; the brethren not being satisfied with his carriage in former tymes, howbeit, now seeming sensible of his fault, ordains him to find caution to compeir, when advertised by his minister, before the Commissioners of the Generall Assemblie for receiving his censure, wha accordinglie produced Robert Denholme of Westshiell cautioner for his obedience.” He entered with great zeal into the engagement, and raised a body of horse and foot at his own expense, with which he joined the Marquis of Hamilton. He escaped from the defeat at Preston. Like the other gentlemen concerned in this enterprise, he was forced to humble himself before the ecclesiastical courts. [UWL]

• 1649 Sep 27–James appeared before the Presbytery of Lanark and gave in a supplication, “wherein he acknowledged his great offence in complying so much with the malignants in time of the unlawfull engagement; as also that he was so unhappie as to be guilty of compliance in the dayes of James Grahame, and humblie acknowledged his sinne before God; that he was guilty of the breach of the oath of the Covenant, and submitted himselfe to the Presbyterie, and desires to be admitted to give his signes of repentance, that when they thought time he might be admitted to the Covenant and holie communion, and the Presbyterie remitted him to his minister to be dealing with him.” [UWL]

• 1651–While still actively exerting himself in the Royal cause, he was taken prisoner in one of the skirmishes which preceded the march of Charles II and his Scottish adherents to Worcester. He was carried to Stirling as a prisoner, and condemned to death as an inveterate malignant. On the intercession of his friends, the capital sentence was remitted, on the condition of his paying a fine of 50,000 merks. [UWL]

• Nothing daunted by the dangers he had escaped or the losses he had sustained, he was still as ready as ever to make every sacrifice for the King. Shortly before the Restoration, he sold the estate of Grugfoot, and transmitted the 24,000 merks he received as the price to Charles II, in his exile at Breda, and afterwards cancelled the bond he had received for his sum. When the county became settled, after the Reformation, he engaged in the promotion of works of improvement. [UWL]

• James had suffered much for his attachment to his Majesty [Charles II], during Cromwell’s usurpation [1653-1658]. He had sold the lands of Grugfoot, and remitted the price for the use of the king [Charles II], then [1649] residing at Breda [in the Netherlands]. He also raised a considerable body of troops, both of horse and foot, at his own expense, with which he joined William, Duke of Hamilton, was defeated, taken prisoner and lodged in the castle of Stirling. Afterwards he was condemned to suffer death, but released through the intercession of his friends, upon paying a fine of 50,000 merks, and retiring to Ireland, where he continued till the restoration [House of Stuart Restored, King Charles II, reign: 1660-1685], which he did not long survive. [DB]

• 1661–James, along with other heritors and inhabitants of the parish of Lanark, presented a petition to the Lords Commissioners of the Bills, for the repair of the bridge of Cleghorn, over the water of Mouse, but it was found that the necessary funds could not be raised. [UWL]

• 1663–James and the other petitioners renewed their supplication, and prayed that, on their undertaking to repair the bridge at the sight of the Justices, they might be authorized to collect a toll from users of the bridge. They were granted the right of exacting pontage for 15 years. [UWL]

• Between 1672-1679, James registered his arms.

• Allan Lockhart resided in Barlborough Old Hall, which is still standing (after restoration), as is Barlborough Hall, the previous home of his wife Elizabeth.  Barlborough Hall should not be confused with Barlborough Old Hall, as Barlborough Old Hall is actually the younger of the two.

Barlborough Old Hall, Barlborough, Derbyshire, England

Barlborough Old Hall was a rubble-built, H-shaped house built on the site of an older capital mansion early in the 17th century (1618) by Sir John Rodes of Barlborough Hall for his elder son John. However, the son was disinherited, quite probably before the house was complete.  The design has been firmly attributed to John Smythson.  In 1670, the house was occupied by Alan Lockhart, who was assessed for tax on 12 hearths, but the house had been alienated by 1723.  Thereafter, it appears to have been divided into two and renamed Crosshouses.  A century later, it was back within the Barlborough Hall estate and was further divided into four, as 2-8 Church Street.  By 1970, it had been empty for some time and had fallen into great decay.  In 1981, it was acquired for restoration by the Derbyshire Historic Buildings Trust, restoration completed by January 1984, and the house was sold in 1987, for use as a private dwelling.   [The Derbyshire Country House by Maxwell Craven and Michael Stanley]

An offering of proof that the Robert Lockhart who married Anna Fleeming/Fleming was Robert Lockhart born of Cleghorn (b. abt. 1612-d. 1663) came from the Lockharts of Cleghorn family papers and family manuscript, which tell the family history from 1476 to 1805.  The family manuscript states that the best friend of Robert Lockhart born of Cleghorn was James Stewart/Stuart who was Provost of Edinburgh, 1648.  James Stuart is one of the witnesses at all the christenings of Robert and Anna (Fleeming) Lockhart’s children.  [Bill Mundell (a Lockhart descendant), 5 Jun 2011]

Explanation for changes, August 2011, by Isabelle S. Lockhart:

This year, 2011, Mr. Bill Mundell, from Scotland, graciously provided me with Scotland National Archives copies of the original Testament and Testament Addendum of Robert Lockhart (b. abt.1612-d.1663), along with Old Parish Records of births of Robert’s children and other documents. 

After careful consideration of all documents available, it is now evident that Robert Lockhart (b. abt.1612-d.1663) did not have two sons by the names of James and John as had been indicated in previous outlines; therefore, the extra James and John mentioned in previous outlines have been eliminated from this 2011 outline of Robert’s children, which I believe to be a more accurate version. The James born 1647, son of Robert, that remains seems to be the one that died in 1661, at the age of 14, which means that there is no James to descend from, of this particular family.

With Robert Lockhart’s wife Anna Elphingstone saying that William Lockhart is her eldest son and Robert Lockhart saying that John Lockhart is his eldest son, this would clearly indicate that Robert had children by two separate wives, the mother of John being a previous wife to Anna Elphingstone, thus reinforcing the belief that the children born to Robert Lockhart and Anna Fleming were indeed this Robert Lockhart.

NOTE:  Although I have seen no documents of their deaths, Robert Jr. (b.1650, Robert’s 3rd son) and George (b.1652, Robert’s 4th son), both may have died before their father Robert Lockhart died in 1663, as there was a “surge in smallpox related mortality” around 1661-62, of doubling proportions from the few years before in Scotland.  Their deaths would explain why, after Robert’s “second son” James died in 1661, Robert Jr. and George were both passed over for Robert’s fifth son William to be named “second son” in Robert’s Testament recorded in 1664.
