Tartan Details - Fitzpatrick

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

STA ref: 1813
STWR ref: 1813
Designer: Not Specified
Tartan date: 01/01/1978
Registration date: This tartan was recorded prior to the launch of The Scottish Register of Tartans.
Category: Name
Registration notes: Original notes read as follows: 'Thread count estimated from a tracing of swatch in Pendleton book 'Irish Tartans', 1990 by Jan Crook.' However, the real story as related by Jan Crook in July 2003 is that she wove a sash in July 1992 based on a piece of tartan given to her by a Bill Fitzpatrick of 14252 Campagna Way, Watsonville, CA 95076. The sample was said to have come from Pendelton Woollen Mills of Oregon who had apparently woven it and who gave their permission to Jan to weave the sash. Apparently Bill Fitzpatrick then registered the tartan as Fitzpatrick with Tartan Educational & Cultural Association on January 1992. Close resemblance to Royal Stewart. The Irish Tartan book was probably Clans Originaux which has long - and erroneously - been held to contain about a dozen Irish tartans. Study of the contents pages by the Scottish Tartans Authority in 2003 showed that there is no Fitzpatrick in it or any other tartans that could be construed as Irish. Research continues to track down the source of this - apparently - false attribution. Sindex notesd say 'By the amount of white used it might be suspected that this is intended to be the 'Dress' version.' Woven by Strathmore Woollen Co. Ltd, Forfar.

Please note

Where tartans were recorded before the establishment of the Scottish Register of Tartans (SRT) on 5 February 2009, the original Scottish Tartans Authority (STA) and the Scottish Tartans World Register (STWR) reference numbers have been retained. The new SRT reference number can be found in the address box on your browser (url).

The registration criteria now applied by the Register conforms to the Scottish Register of Tartans Act 2008. These criteria are different to those previously applied by either the STA or the STWR. You may wish to refer to the STA website for further information on the original recording of this tartan.
