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 studied Modern Languages at Corpus Christi College, Cambridge.[5] He was headmaster of Wanganui Collegiate School, New Zealand, from 1954 to 1960 and of Loretto School from 1960 to 1976.[6]

Lockhart married Helen Priscilla Lawrence Crump,[7] and they had two sons, Alastair and Malcolm.


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