Hudson's Bay (Corporate)
  • Notes: Sindex card:- "Details from (the late) Dr.Wm E Johnston, Lockwood, Skippack, P.O. Box 523 PA 1974. 'House Plaid - West Lothian Woollen Mills of Hudson Bay.' The red on midnight blue is sometimes given as orange but this count here follows that from the CIDD. An alternative derivation is that it was designed by Gordon Kirkbright (now of Fraser & Kirkbright, Vancouver) when with West Coast Woolen Mill. Gordon says (Sept 2002) that it was a fashion tartan made for the Hudson Bay Company. Despite the earliest known date of 1974 the design was not registered in the CIDD until 6th November 1984 and is held by "The Governors and Company of Adventurers of England Trading into Hudson's Bay, also known as the Hudson's Bay Company Winnipeg, Manitoba." No colours were specified . It's possible that both derivations are correct and that West Lothian Woollen Mills was retailing a Hudson Bay tartan..
