Over the past year, I've been lucky enough to push back in my family history research on some of my maternal Scots ancestors, and so today I present their tartans. Those familiar with tartans will know that most clans have dress and hunting tartans, and both ancient and modern versions of both of those.
|Matheson ancient dress|
|Ross modern dress|
|Grant ancient hunting|
|Gillanders ancient hunting|
|Mackenzie modern hunting|
|MacDonald modern dress|
The clan tartan of another 3rd great grandmother, Margaret Davidson (1778-1863) is below.
Clan Gordon is represented in my family tree by a 4th great grandmother, Jean Gordon (b abt 1755).
*Why Argentina? Wikipedia tells us that Argentina has about 100,000 people of Scots descent, the largest group outside the English-speaking world. Who knew?
The never ending story continues....
