To My Pocket

To My Pocket is the personal Cash Book of George Lockhart of Carnwath (1700 – 1764) covering the period 1758 – 1763.

The family had strong Jacobite affiliations and, but for the prudence of the author of this Cash Book, the estates of Carnwath were saved.

The cash Book was discovered in 1976 by the present Laird of Carnwath, Simon Macdonald Lockhart, who has very ably edited the Cash Book of his ancestor.

Here we find a wealth of detail which gives a very clear picture of life of a prosperous family in the mid 18th century, but one where loyalties were deeply divided.
