Drummond of Perth (Clan)
  • Notes: Probably the earliest mention is in a manuscript book in the National Museum of Antiquities in Edinburgh thought to date to around 1800. D W Stewart said of this sett: "Tradition associates this tartan with the amiable, ill-fated James Drummond, Duke of Perth, who was conspicuous in the '45 and who died on board a French frigate while attempting to escape in the succeeding year." The early collections nearly all contain this pattern, which is variously styled Drummond of Perth, Drummond, and Perth." The earliest known date recorded from a list compiled by D C Stewart from Wilsons of Bannockburn letters is 1827. Modern weavers show yellow flanking the red rather than the white shown here. This is thought to be the correct version but use and wont seem to have won out.
