LOCKLIEAR / LOCKLAIR GENERATION 1


It is believed that STEPHEN LOCKLIER was born about 1775 in St. Matthew's Parish, Orangeburgh District, South Carolina. His will, dated 31 Mar 1834 and proved 3 Jun 1834, is recorded in the Charleston County Probate Court Records in Charleston, South Carolina in Will Book M, 1834-1839, page 42. In it he mentions, but does not name, his wife. When the will was proved, a renunciation was filed for one of the executors and SARAH LOCKLIER qualified as administratrix. She is believed to be his wife, SARAH HAMILTON, born about 1785, a daughter of JOHN HAMILTON. Also mentioned in his will are his children: MARY, HAMILTON, JOHN, STEPHEN, SARAH ANN and ANNIE CAROLINE LOCKLIER.


LOCKLIEAR / LOCKLAIR GENERATION 2



- HAMILTON LOCKLIEAR
He married first to ELIZA [Unknown]. The name of his second wife is not known. His ancestral home was Dover Plantation at Russellville, Berkeley County, South Carolina. His probate records can be found in the Berkeley County Probate Court Records in Moncks Corner, South Carolina, in Box 15. He died intestate and the letters of administration are signed 7 Oct 1892 by HAMILTON LOCKLIEAR, probably his son. An enclosed letter, also signed by HAMILTON LOCKLIER on 20 Sep 1892 indicates that in April 1866 he paid 'direct tax' to the U. S. Government in the amount of $21.12 for property in St. Stephen's Parish, Berkeley County, South Carolina. There are many spelling variations for this name - LOCKLIEAR, LOCKLEAR, LOCKLAIR, etc. I will list them as I have found them spelled.
