Graham of Montrose - 1850 (Clan)
  • Notes: DC Stewart noted that this sett was woven by Wilson's of Bannockburn around 1819. Wilson called it the No. 64 or 'Abercrombie' pattern, and produced it in various colours. In yellow it becomes the Breadalbane and in red, the MacCallum. The white striped Graham tartan is also known as MacLaggan. It is worn unofficially by 205 (Scottish) Field Hospital Royal Army Medical Corps Volunteers. There is a sample dating from 1815, labelled 'Graham', in the Cockburn Collection. It was first published in the Smith's book of 1850. See also Montrose, Menteith. The entry in Andrew & William Smith's 1859 publication 'Authenticated Tartans of the Clans & Families of Scotland' reads: "Meyer and Mortimer of Edinburgh, for a period of at least nearly thirty years, have manufactured this pattern as The Graham Tartan, during which time they have supplied it to many distinguished families of that name." Note - one cannot determine from the Smiths' illustration if they are showing this version or #1116. The earliest known date from a list compiled by D C Stewart from Wilsons of Bannockburn letters is 1827.
