MacGill of Jura (Clan?)
  • Notes: MacGill as shown on SCRAN from the National Museum of Scotland.(Pattern of MacGill tartan by William Anderson and Sons Ltd, Edinburgh and Glasgow Scran ID: 000-000-605-972-C). Count from a very low resolution computer graphic. The family tartan, which originated with the MacGills of Jura, was in use before 1745 but when tartan was proscribed the sett seemed to have been lost until a piece was discovered in Kintyre and placed in the Museum of Antiquities (now incorporated into the National Museum of Scotland in Chambers St., Edinburgh). The current version of MacGill at #1487, which first appeared in 1930, is known as the MacGill Society tartan. Sample in STA Dalgety Collection.
