Registration notes: This V.S. sett was approved by Lord Bruce, Earl of Elgin in 1967 who believed he had independent evidence dating back to 1571 - a weaver's chart with threadcount which was subsequently lost. The original included black guards on the white and yellow (see 1821) but in this personal variation Lord Bruce dropped them. Clans Originaux of 1880 agrees with this sett. Sample in STA's Scarlett Collection. Oct. 2007: The earliest known date recorded here is from a list compiled by D C Stewart from Wilsons of Bannockburn letters.
