Tartan Details - Unnamed C19th - (Christening Dress)

The information held within The Scottish Register of Tartans for the "Unnamed C19th - (Christening Dress)" tartan is shown below. 

STA ref: 6725
STWR ref: none
Designer: Unknown
Tartan date: Not Specified
Registration date: This tartan was recorded prior to the launch of The Scottish Register of Tartans.
Category: Other
Registration notes: Details of this tartan were taken from photographs of a christening dress for George Robert Hewett, born 1882 in the United States. The design resembles the Caledonia tartan [#455], a Wilsons of Bannockburn pattern design from the early 19th century, a popular designs which was the source of a number of later tartans by Wilsons and other firms. The owner has no idea if the cloth was brought from Scotland by George's grandfather in the 1820's or purchased in the USA at a later date. The material had been passed down as the Hewett family tartan but there is no evidence to support this.

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.
