Tartan date: 20/04/2009
Registration date: 15 May 2009
Category: Name
Registration notes: The name Breckon was found in Angus where the family lived in the town of Brechin. Issac of Breckon in 1178 was the first to use the name as a surname. The name, Breckon, occurs frequently along with its spelling variations (Brechin, Breechin, Breichen, Brichan, Brichane, Breching, Brechyn). The Brecheen or Brechin tartan was registered in 1996. A Breckon tartan was designed and recorded with the Scottish Tartans Authority, using the 2 colours from the Breckon Coat of Arms (gold and red) and including blue and a simular pattern to compliment the Angus District tartan. The Hunting version uses the same pattern as the Breckon tartan, incorporating blue and red from the Breckon and Angus tartans, and green. This tartan is for the use of all of the name and spelling variations thereof.
