 17th Century

History of the settlement of Nova Scotia, Canada:

Nova Scotia is Latin for New Scotland and is a Canadian province located on Canada’s southeastern coast.  The first European settlement in Nova Scotia was established in 1604 and the first documented Scottish settlement in the Americas was of Nova Scotia in 1621.  The charter for the foundation of a colony was granted by James I (of England) (VI of Scotland) to William Alexander, 1st Earl of Stirling, in 1621, and in 1622, the first settlers left Scotland.

This settlement initially failed because of difficulties in obtaining a sufficient number of skilled emigrants, so in 1624, James VI created a new order of baronets.  Admission to this order was obtained by sending six laborers or artisans, sufficiently armed, dressed and supplied for two years, to Nova Scotia, or by paying 3,000 merks to William Alexander.  This offer was slow for takers, but in 1627, there was a wider uptake of baronetcies and thus more settlers available to go to Nova Scotia.  In 1629, the first Scottish settlement at Port Royal (Nova Scotia, Canada) was inhabited.

History of one of the first Lockharts in Canada:

Sir John Sinclair (-d.1649), 1st Baronet of Murkle and Stevenson, was a merchant in Edinburgh, and had acquired Stevenson, in the county of Haddington (Nova Scotia, Canada), in 1624.  The baronetcy of Murkle in the County of Caithness (Nova Scotia, Canada) was created for Sir John Sinclair in 1636.  Sir John Sinclair (-d.1649) was great grandfather to Sir John Sinclair (-d.1726), younger, who became 4th Baronet of Stevenson (county Haddington, Nova Scotia, Canada).

Sir John SINCLAIR (-d.1726) married 1698, Martha LOCKHART (b.1668-d.1752), Lady Castlehill, daughter of Sir John Lockhart, Lord Castlehill (d.1694), and Catherine Thomson.  Martha Lockhart was the widow of Cromwell Lockhart (14th of Lee) (d.1693).  Descendants of the Sir John Sinclair (d.1726) and Martha Lockhart (b.1668-d.1752) marriage, inherited the Scotland estates of Castlehill, Stonehouse, Cambusnethan, etc. and/or the Canadian estates of Stevenson and Murkle, and adopted the surname SINCLAIR-LOCKHART, some using LOCKHART (inheritors of Castlehill and Cambusnethan in Scotland), some using SINCLAIR.

The Lockharts of Castlehill and Cambusnethan, and the Sinclair-Lockharts of Stevenson in Canada are intertwined–almost all descended from Martha Lockhart /Lockhart /Sinclair of Castlehill, Lanarkshire, Scotland.  See LOCKHARTS of CASTLEHILL.
