MacGill (Clan)
  • Notes: This sample comes from the MacGregor-Hastie collection which forms the basis of the cloth archive of the Scottish Tartans Society. Some of the samples, including this one, were unmarked. One can assume that the sample dates between 1930 and 1950. The family tartan, which originated with the MacGills of Jura, was in use before 1745 but when tartan was proscribed the sett seemed to have been lost until a piece was discovered in Kintyre and placed in the Museum of Antiquities (now incorporated into the National Museum of Scotland in Chambers St., Edinburgh). The current version, which first appeared in 1930, is known as the MacGill Society tartan. Sample in STA Dalgety Collection.
