Breeding (Name)
  • Notes: For John Breeding of Colorado. A blending of the Stewart of Atholl and Dundee tartans. For use by all of the name Breeding or Breeden. According to information supplied by Mr. Breeding, the Breeding/Breeden family originated in France, migrated into England, then Scotland, and finally to the United States. John Breeding descends from Patience Breeding, who first appears in records pregnant and unmarried as an indentured servant in Virginia in 1701. The white line in the tartan is to commemorate Patience Breeding. Elements of the Stewart of Atholl tartan honor the family's French oriigins (the Stewart of Atholl sett was used to create the "Auld Alliance" tartan due to the strong ties France had with the Stewart dynasty). Elements of Wilsons' Dundee tartan were used to reflect where the family lived in Scotland. The colors of the flags of France, England, Scotland, the USA, and Virginia are all reflected in the tartan design.
