Isobel,
I have done a little looking and cannot find town, city or village called Galt in Canada.  Would you know the province by any chance.  Also there was a predominant family called Galt, I believe he was the first Hight Commissioner to Canada from the U.K..

Hi Isobel,
Galt (now part of the city of Cambridge) is in the Province of Ontario, Waterloo County.  Here are a couple of website suggestions:

Ontario GenWeb for Waterloo County:

Ontario Vital Statistics Project:

You can find a transcription of the 1851 census for Galt at this site:

http://www.waterlooogs.ca/census.htm

There are no "Hoggs" listed but there are a couple "Hogg" from Scottland born in the 1820's.
