Lockharts

Lockharts of Waygateshaw

A branch off Cleghorn

by Isabelle S. Lockhart

Updated 12 Nov 2013.

This placename began as Wicketshaw, with spelling variations such as Waygetshaw, Wicketschaw, Wicketshay, Wickitschaw, Weigateschaw, Weitshaw, Weiketschaw, Wygateshaw, and was eventually referred to as Waygateshaw.  Waygateshaw is located in Carluke parish, in the county of Lanark.  Miltoun and Miltown are spelling variations of Milton, which later became known as Milton-Lockhart.

(One version) Wicketshaw was originally part of the forest or barony of Mauldeslie, and afterwards annexed to that of Touchadam, in Stirlingshire.  These lands formed part of the lands of Milton, and were carried to Allan, son of Sir Stephen Lockhart of Cleghorn by his marriage with Katherine, a daughter of Whiteford of that ilk, who bestowed them on a younger son.  The earliest notice of them are found in the records connecting them with this family.  [Upper Ward of Lanarkshire, 1864]

It is also said that Allan Lockhart’s brother Stephen was the one who came to own Waygateshaw and to be known as the “1st of Waygateshaw”, about 1490.  [Burke’s Landed Gentry, 1886]

Yet, another version states that the Whitefords of that ilk and of Milton never possessed Waygateshaw–that the property directly passed from the Touchadam family to the Lockharts and that it was Alexander Lockhart who acquired the estate of Waygateshaw from the Murrays of Touchadam.  The lands of Waygateshaw (in the county of Lanark) and the lands of Touchadam (in the county of Stirling) were erected into a barony by Alexander Murray under a charter from James II, dated 15 Dec 1455.  [Notices, Historical, Statistical and Biographical, Relating to the Parish of Carluke, from 1288 till 1874, Glasgow 1874, Waygateshaw, p.165]

Together with Waygateshaw, this segment also includes Lockhart connections to Birkhill, Crossford, Germiston, Kirkton, Poniel, Park of Douglas, Milton-Lockhart, Westshields, etc.  Since the Lockharts of Waygateshaw branched off the Lockharts of Cleghorn at a very early date, this segment begins with the earliest Lockharts of Cleghorn.

* 1669–From 1644, the parish of Lesmahagow enjoyed the services of two ministers, but the remuneration of the second was not definitely fixed till the epoch of the Revolution, when Anne, Duchess of Hamilton, settled a stipend upon the second minister equal to that enjoyed by the first, and provided him with a manse and garden–he has no glebe. Mr. Robert Lockhart was appointed to the second charge in Lesmahago on 1 Sept 1669.  [UWL,1864]

* 1679–Robert had a horse shot from under him at Bothwell Bridge and while in concealment after the battle, with other Covenanters, some of them proposed to join in a psalm of praise, from which Robert Lockhart of Birkhill tried to dissuade them, as the enemy was in close pursuit.  Finding his remonstrances vain, he took refuge in the top of a tree, and the soldiers of Claverhouse came upon his friends, who were taken prisoner and shortly afterwards ended their career on the scaffold.  He himself, worn out by fatigue and privations, was soon after found dead in a moss, and secretly buried after nightfall within the church of Carluke. The sword and pistols he wore at his death were preserved by his family.  [New Statistical Account of Scotland, Vol.vi., p.579],  [SN]
