Hood (Artefact)
  • Notes: Kilt that has been in the family of a Mrs June Hood Carpenter of Starkville, Mississippi for over 200 years. Said to have been taken to the USA by a forebear - Presbyterian Minister called Alexander Hood (born 1759). Photos taken to Matt Newsome of the Tartans Museum in North Carolina. Peter MacDonald suggests that this is a typical Victorian 'fine plaid' of the type that was very common in 1860 -1900 and therefore casts doubt on the basic provenance. He suggests it could have been a bed throw/light blanket of about 12 feet long or a shawl about 6ft square.
