Designer: Wilsons of Bannockburn
Also Called: Ferguson - 1830 of Atholl (Clan)
Tartan date: c1830
Springweight, Lightweight, Mediumweight, Heavyweight
Registration notes: Count from a Wilsons' sample c1830-40 in a Scott-Adie pattern book. Woven sample in Clans Originaux and called simply 'Ferguson'. It was noted that this sett is the same as Maclaren who were followers of the Murrays of Atholl as were the Athol Fergusons. However it isn't the same since MacLaren has a yellow line in place of the white shown here. Lochcarron sample. James Cant MA (d1960) calls this Ferguson - Aberdeenshire in his manuscript of 450+ hand-painted colour strips. The earliest known date from a list compiled by D C Stewart from Wilsons of Bannockburn letters is 1822 but does that refer to this version?
