Birral (Clan)
  • Notes: The count was taken from a manuscript account book in the National Museum of Antiquities of Scotland in Queen Street, Edinburgh. Sample in STA Dalgety Collection. This tartan is mentioned by Telford Dunbar in his 1962 'History of Highland Dress' (Page145) when he states that it appeared in William Wilson's stock list of 1800. The earliest known date recorded here is from a list compiled by D C Stewart from Wilsons of Bannockburn letters. A note in Wilsons' pattern book states: "If the Birralls, or nore properly the Burrells were a clan this probably would have been their Tartan. Manufacturers had a custom of naming patterns after the person who gave them (the orders) or any person whatever. This gave rise to the names of many patterns and perhaps this among the rest."
