Alexander of Menstry Dress (Personal
  • Notes: The old spelling of Menstry (with a 'y') is used to avoid any impression that 'Alexander of Menstrie' refers to a baronial landholding. Designed by Raydon Eiland Alexander of San Antonio, Texas in 2002, it is aimed at the many Alexander descendants who first took that family name in Menstrie (at the foot of the Ochil Hills in Clackmannanshire).The purple and green block in this design represent the heather and grass of the Ochils. The white and blue of 6713 and 6715 have been reveresed, echoing the flag and arms of Nova Scotia, founded by one of the most famous Alexanders of Menstrie - the first Earl of Stirling. The ten threads of blue are for the ten Alexanders (nine siblings and their father) who crossed the Atlantic to Virginia in 1669 and from whom most of this surname in the south of the USA are likely to have descended.
