George Lockhart of Carnwath, 1681-1731: A Study in Jacobitism
Lockhart was almost a stereotypical eighteenth-century Scottish coming man: a Commissioner for Midlothian in the Scottish Parliament; a member of the Commission charged with negotiating the treaty of Union; M.P. for Midlothian at Westminster; an improving landlord; an accomplished writer and pamphleteer. But most of all, he was a committed, passionate Jacobite and nationalist who rose to become one of the senior leaders of the Jacobite underground in Scotland in the period between the rising of 1715 and the more famous '45. By exploring his mentality the author sheds light on the inner workings of Jacobitism in Scotland during the traumatic years leading up to and following the Union of 1707.
