Haig Check (Estate Check)
  • Notes: Designed by the Colonel of the 4th Battalion King's Own Scottish Borderers in 1908 and used for the pipers' plaids. Earl Haig's family adopted it since he was also a Colonel of the battalion. It was also known as the Gladstone (connection not known as yet) and the Buccleuch Check - the connection with Buccleuch is also being researched. The name Haig possibly evolved from Norman or Norwegian history. In Scotland, the Haig name goes back at least to the time of Robert III. Around 1453 the Haig estate was divided among heirs. David Haig sold his share, changed his name to Hoge, and moved to Musselborough. Once in America, many of the Hoges changed to the now more common spelling of Hogue. (RootsWeb June 2004)
