McMurchie (Personal)
  • Notes: The John and Jesse McMurchie Family tartan was designed and woven to honour the strength, compassion and uncommon perseverance of John (1887-1961) and Jesse McMurchie (1895-1979)and their four daughters, Sarah, Margaret, Jacqueline and Elizabeth. The tartan was designed and woven by Sarah (McMurchie) Brown's grandson Mackenzie Frere in consultation with the four McMurchie sisters who chose the colours. Dark blue is a reminder of the ocean that John McMurchie crossed in 1908 to arrive in Canada. Purple symbolizes the amethyst, Jesse McMurchie's birth stone. Green represents John McMurchie's great love of the garden. The light blue and yellow that criss cross the tartan, signify the blue and sunny skies of Alberta. Red symbolises Canada. Each red square is divided into four: one for each of John and Jesse's daughters. The John & Jesse McMurchie Family tartan has been designed for the use of all descendants of John and Jesse McMurchie, in Canada and around the world.
