Tartan Details - Blaylock Annandale

The information held within The Scottish Register of Tartans for the "Blaylock Annandale" tartan is shown below. 

Reference: 10405
Designer: Smith, Dr Phil
Tartan date: 27/10/2010
Registration date: 12 May 2011
Category: Name
Registration notes: The Blaylock Annandale was designed by Dr Philip D Smith, Jr for the John Blaylock family of Los Alamos, New Mexico, USA, the Joe Blaylock family of Sacramento, California, USA, and Janet (Blaylock) Doughman of Davenport, Florida, USA. The striking blend of old blue, light green, and black is accentuated by contrasting sky-blue overstriping. These colours are similar to those of the Douglas tartan recalling the clan-sept connection between the Douglas and Blaylock families, but the Annandale has its own unique sett. The name of the tartan together with its predominant colours, suggests an image of the blue water of the Annan river meandering through its lush green valley. The Blaylock family has been traced back to the 16th century to Annandale of Dumfriesshire along the lands bordering the Annan river. The registrant's ancestors emigrated to the United States in the 18th century and settled in western North Carolina and Virginia. Later generations spread to north Georgia, Tennessee, and ultimately across the country. The Blaylock Annandale may be worn by anyone with the surname Blaylock or any variation of that name - Blalock, Blalack.
Information notes: To view woven sample, please request NAS6/O6/Oversize.
Woven Sample: A woven sample of this tartan has been received by the Scottish Register of Tartans for permanent preservation in the National Records of Scotland.
