  • Notes: Red dress: Commissioned by Herbert Earl Blackstock in 1983, President of the Clan Blackstock Society in the USA and designed by kiltmaker and kilt historian Bob Martin of Greenville South Carolina. Blackstocks were a 'Scotch-Irish' family who emigrated to the US from what is now Ulster. Herbert Earl Blackstock formed Clan Blackstock with a few of his cousins about 1980. CBS was incorporated in the state of Texas on Nov 8 1991 as a fraternal nonprofit organization. Bob Martin designed our tartan and it was registered with the Scottish tartan society in 1982. Our clan status is based on the issuance of a coat of arms in 1565 and confirmed by a letter from Sir Crispin Agnew of Lochnaw and dated 13 March 1991.We have a rich history and are learning more each day. It has been noted by schlors that Robert Burns poem "Old Cauldreth" was written to a Jane Blackstock. The seventh largest battle of the American Revolutionary war was fought on William Blackstocks farm which is presently being made into a South Carolina State park on the Palmetto Trail commemorating Revolutionary War battles. William Blackstock was married to Mary Irwin daughter of General Irwin and wife Elander. I, John Richard Blackstock am now President, Herbert having passed away on 16 September 2002. John Edward Blackstock is 1st Vice-President and webmaster. Blackstock is claimed as a sept by both clans Douglas and Maxwell but neither have any written proof. Our clan strength is 120 members and growing. There are approximately 2000 Blackstocks in the USA today. http://theclanblackstocksociety.com/
