William Lockhart was born about 1795[1] in Nova Scotia. Parents unknown. The Lockhart genealogy, "Lockhart families of Nova Scotia and New Brunswick",[2] says that Will was possibly the oldest son of Timothy Lockhart and Elizabeth Teed of Sackville, NB, but acknowledges that this is uncertain given that their youngest son was named William. As the 1861 and 1871 censuses both have William's birth place as Nova Scotia, it is unlikely that he was the son of Timothy and Elizabeth.

William married Delia Beckwith on January 29, 1929.[3] At the time of their marriage, William was living in Moncton Parish. William and Delia had 9 children. In 1851, they were living in Salisbury, Westmorland County, New Brunswick.[4] Delia died in 1858.[5] In 1861, William and two of his three youngest children were living in Havelock, Kings Co, New Brunswick,[6] next door to his daughter Martha and her husband and child.[7] In 1871, he was living with his son John and his family.[8]

William died sometime after 1871.

Hi Stuart. I agree that it's not impossible, but I find it unlikely. Not just because of the birth location, but also because of them having another child named William. That said, I've not yet been able to connect him anywhere else either.

I don't see why William's birth in Nova Scotia excludes him from Being a son of Timothy. It's likely that Timothy was born somewhere near Windsor, then would have moved with his father to Parsboro. He was employed with his brothers for some time running a ferry between across the Minas Basin. After that he moved to Sackville and I expect that William would have already been born at that point. I don't have documentation for this. My uncle, Deane Lockhart, wrote the section on this family for the Eaton book. He used to like to tell stories about "Old Tim". Tim used to travel a lot for those days, and was certainly travelling between Sackville and Parsboro. It was said that he was the first to drive a team through the woods between the two places. It's probable that he met miss Teed on one of those trips. There's also nothing to suggest that the Teeds did't go through Hants County on the way to what is now New Brunswick. That was actually a common route, stop at Horton Landing, then sort yourself out, and move up the Peticodiac when the time is right. The Teeds wound up in Kent County but their original grant was in Wallace.
