Huntly (District)
  • Notes: 1819 count halved to show sett. From Wilsons' 1819 - Marchioness of Huntly's tartan. Also from 'Old and Rare Scottish Tartans' published in 1893 by D.W. Stewart. The book was illustrated by samples woven in silk. The Huntly district tartan is known to have been worn at the time of the '45 rebellion by Brodies, Forbes', Gordons, MacRaes, Munros and Rosses which gives a strong indication of the greater antiquity of the 'District' setts compared to the Clan tartans. Jamie Scarlett MBE says (Jan 2005) that this tartan was the personal tartan of the Marchioness - thus the Wilson's name 'The Marchioness of Huntly's Tartan' but over time, because it contained the name 'Huntly' it became accepted and used as the district tartan for Huntly. This tartan was shown at the Highland Exhibition in the 1930s. DW Stewart said that it had considerablew use in the 18th century and was worn by a Miss Rebecca Forbes (Daughter of Sir Wm. Forbes) of Pitsligo when she married Ranald MacDonnell 15th of Glengarry in 1802.
