Name of Tartan:
MacLaurin, Regent, Wilsons No. 232
Designer / Source:
Available to STA members only
Adopted by the MacLarens at the time of the levee (1822). The MacLaren differs from The Ferguson only in having a yellow line where the latter has a white. They share the unusual feature of an unbroken band of blue. The present tartan appears under this name in Mclan's plate for Clan MacLaren. Wilsons of Bannockburn were producing it before 1820 - but only under the name of 'Regent'. The Regency ended when George IV succeeded to the throne in that year, the name of the tartan then becoming outdated, but production of the sett continued. Clans Originaux (1880) shows this sett (BW June 2004). House of Edgar produces what they call Maclaren (Ancient) Variant which is this sett but with different proportions and the blue changed to dark red/purple. This tartan is specifically mentioned by Telford Dunbar in his 1962 'History of Highland Dress' (Page149) when he included it in a list of William Wilson's tartans that were most popular in 1822. At one time Pringles produced a reproduction version of this and called it MacLarn Hunting Reproduction buty of course, there is no hunting Maclaren.
