Born in Lanark County, Ontario on 20 April 1853, son of William Lochead and Jane Stuart, he came to Winnipeg in May 1877 and later travelled up the Mackenzie River trading with aboriginals. In 1880 he took up a farmstead in the vicinity of Deloraine which he operated for 11 years. In 1891 he moved to Deloraine and ran a livery business for five years. He then ran a general lumbering business. He married Maggie Innes in 1887. They had two children: Jane (b 1888) and Annie (b 1890). His wife died in 1891 and, two years later, he was remarried to Helen Cameron. They had four children: Maggie (b 1893), William (b 1895), Thomas (b 1897) and John (b 1899).
