MacAlister (Clan)
  • Notes: This was the Scottish Tartans Society record for the Smith version of MacAlister and it ties in with D C Stewart's of 1950. The STS notes were as follows: "This plate is taken from the manuscript of William and Andrew Smith's 'Authenticated Tartans of the Clans and Families of Scotland'. The Smith's sources included the findings of George Hunter, an Army clothier, who toured the Highlands in search of old tartans prior to 1822. MacAlisters are descendants of Donald of Islay, Lord of the Isles. Contemporary accounts of Flora MacDonald (1746) suggest that MacAlisters wore the MacDonald tartan at that time. The MacAlister tartan was certified by the chief in 1845. "
