Personal life and Family

Lockhart came from an established family. His father, John, was a dual rugby-cricket international for Scotland and headmaster of Sedbergh School. His brother Logie was also a Scottish rugby international[4] and headmaster, and another brother, Patrick, was an obstetrician. An uncle, Sir Robert Hamilton Bruce Lockhart, was a notable rugby footballer, spy, and journalist, whose son Robin wrote Reilly, Ace of Spies. Lord Bruce-Lockhart was his nephew. He attended Sedbergh School and Edinburgh Academy and in later life was headmaster of Wanganui Collegiate School, New Zealand, from 1954 to 1960 and of Loretto School from 1960 to 1976.[5]

Lockhart married Helen Priscilla Lawrence Crump,[6] and they had two sons, Alastair and Malcolm.


Lockhart died at Burneside, Cumbria, England, in 1990, aged 73, from undisclosed causes.
