McKerrell of Hillhouse Htg (Clan)
  • Notes: As with many tartans, quite a bit of confusion seems to have been generated about the McKerrell of Hillhouse family tartan because of colour nomenclature, possible misrecording of the thread count by early researchers and then the inability of some computer graphic programmes to show a different warp and weft. This McKerrell of Hillhouse family tartan shown here however is the definitive version recorded in The Lyon Court Books (LCB 42 - 25 June 1982). It incorporates the colours of the family coat of Arms - gold, blue, red and silver (white). As shown here, red is used in the warp in place of yellow. This McKerrell of Hillhouse and the Dress version can be worn as a McKerrell tartan - by all those with the name McKerrell and its spelling variations - with the permission of McKerrell of Hillhouse (mckerrellofhillhouse@ukonline.co.uk. Tel: +44 1387 810439). The earliest illustration of the tartan is in a portrait by de Sange of Robert McKerrell of Hillhouse yr, 1804 - 1875 Sample in STA Collection. The name possibly has its origins in Ulster in the 5th century and was first recorded in Ayrshire, Scotland in the 12th/13th century.
