Rugged coastal mountains and the windswept Hebrides islands were the home of the first family to use the name Loucart. It was originally given to a person who was brave. Loucart is a nickname surname, which belongs to the category of hereditary surnames. Nicknames form a broad and miscellaneous class of surnames, and can refer directly or indirectly to one's personality, physical attributes, mannerisms, or even their habits of dress. The surname Loucart comes from the words loc and hardy, which mean lock and brave or hardy.

Early Origins of the Loucart family


The surname Loucart was first found in Lanarkshire (Gaelic: Siorrachd Lannraig) a former county in the central Strathclyde region of Scotland, now divided into the Council Areas of North Lanarkshire, South Lanarkshire, and the City of Glasgow, where this distinguished family acquired the estates of Carnwath, Cleghorn, Birkhill, Kirktoun, and Leigh.

The Lockharts of Leigh (Lee) trace their descent from Sir Simon Locard whose name some claim was derived from the territorial name "de Loch Ard." The family estate was centered at Lee Castle, originally built c. 1272 and was expanded in the 19th century.

Sir Simon Locard accompanied Sir James Douglas on his expedition with the heart of Robert the Bruce, which after Douglas' death brought home from Spain and buried in Melrose Abbey. This incident was the reason of the Arms' "man's heart within a fetterlock."

Migration of the Loucart family to the New World and Oceana


Scottish settlers arrived in many of the communities that became the backbones of the United States and Canada. Many stayed, but some headed west for the endless open country of the prairies. In the American War of Independence, many Scots who remained loyal to the Crown re-settled in Canada as United Empire Loyalists. Scots across North America were able to recover much of their lost heritage in the 20th century as Clan societies and highland games sprang up across North America. Early immigration and passenger lists have documented some of the first Loucarts to arrive on North American shores: Robert Lockhard settled in Virginia in 1777; Gaven Lockhart settled in east New Jersey in 1685; Robert Lockhart settled in New York in 1820; Hugh, Isaac, Janet, John, Nicholas, Robert Lockhart, all arrived in Philadelphia between 1840 and 1860..

The Loucart Motto

The Loucart Motto


The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: Corda serata pando
Motto Translation: I lay open locked hearts.
