Kidd (Clan?)
  • Notes: STS says this eventually became known as MacPherson. Rock & Wheel was an early type of soft tartan made with a spindle (a' rock') spun warp and a wheel spun weft. The count was taken from a manuscript account book in the National Museum of Antiquities of Scotland in Queen Street, Edinburgh. Sample in STA's Scarlett Collection. This is said to have been sold to a Scot called Kidd for clothing his West Indian slaves but in the rush for clan tartans during George IV's Edinburgh visit in 1822 it became the MacPherson. Prior to both those 'names' it was simply known as No. 43. The earliest known date from a list compiled by D C Stewart from Wilsons of Bannockburn letters is 1822.
