Drummond - 1819 (Clan)
  • Notes: Wilsons' sett called New Bruce in the 1819 KPB Tartans Society notes: The sett closely resembles the pattern used by McIan for his Drummond figure, which Logan asserts is in fact a Grant tartan. Nevertheless it is established that the Drummonds wore this sett to meet George IV in Edinburgh in 1822. The illustration here comes from a sample in the MacGregor-Hastie Collection. There is also a Drummond of Perth sett. See the notes on Grant (#1384) for more details of the complexity of tartans. In their 1850 book "The Clan and Family Tartans of Scotland" William and Andrew Smith of Mauchline wrote: "The Tartan here given is sometimes called the Perth Drummond, in contradistinction to a Tartan called the Strathallan Drummond but this last is nothing else than the Ogilvie, woven on a larger scale - while the Perth Drummond seems to all along been known by the Trade as the true Drummond and worn by the families of that name."
