When I first hit 50, my Legacy was level 6.

That's quite precise considering I leveled my main alone, had no other characters contributing to Legacy.

Actually not THAT precise, now I am in doubt whether it was level 6 or 7. Most likely 6.

That assumption is based on all legacy levels being the same amount of XP to acquire, is that a known fact?

Well, after you have unlocked your legacy (which on average would be level 30-33), any xp gain after that contributes to your legacy xp.
So if you roll a new alt, it's gaining lxp for you from level 1.
Most of my lxp (level 28 and change) has probably come from post-50 FPs and Ops; I only have 2 50s (second has only been 50 since Monday night) and two others at 21 and 19 (no lxp since they were both pre-Legacy; unless it was retro-actively applied during the server transfer) and one at 12 (can't remember if he was pre or post my main completing Ch.1).
My second 50 was all post-Legacy; I think she was in her mid-30s when I hit Legacy 25, so three and a bit Legacy mid-range levels in maybe the last 15 character levels

While I always try to provide correct and meaningful information I have been known to make mistakes, from time to time.

Not wanting to make a new thread for this, but saw this thread and thought I'd ask here...

Maybe silly question, but do you keep earning XP, Legacy XP and such after lvl 50? Even though you can't level up further.

first off no, its not a silly question, the answer is yes, anything you do at level 50 that would have granted experience, (quests, flashppints, pve, pvp, even hunting datacrons i belive)
gives legacy experience as a reward as well as cash,

it is another reason to do your level 50 dailies as they are a goldmine of legacy exp and cash at the same time.

No.

Not XP, anyway, and I doubt that legacy XP is an exception.

Once you hit the cap, you stop earning XP.
When they increase the level cap all of those 50s are going to have to actually go out and earn XP to hit that new cap, not just log in and discover that they had already earned enough XP to go from level 50-55.

besides the fact that people hardly EVER read the posts above them and barge straight from the OP to their own $0.02, this post is FILLED with wrongness (and a little rightness).
as mentioned before...
...you DO NOT GAIN CHARACTER XP after 50
...you DO, MOST DEFINITELY gain legacy xp from characters at 50.

and that's my $0.02...paid in Canadian coins!
