Tartan Details - New Brunswick (Lyon Court Books)

The information held within The Scottish Register of Tartans for the "New Brunswick (Lyon Court Books)" tartan is shown below. 

STA ref: 663
STWR ref: 663
Designer: Jenkins, Patricia
Tartan date: 01/01/1959
Registration date: Not Specified
Category: District
Registration notes: Designed by Miss M Patricia Jenkins MA, founder of Loomcrofters, Gagetown, New Brunswick, Canada. Commissioned by Lord Beaverbrook and then adopted by New Brunswick as its district tartan. Loomcrofters describe the tartan thus: 'New Brunswick's three main industries are Lumbering, Agriculture and Fishing. These are represented in the design by the forest green, meadow green and blue interwoven with gold for the province's potential wealth. The red blocks surrounding the green signify the loytalty and devotion to Crown and Country of our Loyalist settlers, the New Brunswick regiments and all our peoples. The block also contains the grey and gold of the provincial Coat of Arms and the Regimental Crest. Because the first weaving of the design was commissioned for Lord Beaverbrook, the provinces eminent benefactor, the red blocks are highlighted by 'beaver' brown. The entry in the Lyon Court Books reads: 'This tartan is asymmetrical. The sett reading along the warp from the left may be divided into four equal sections of 190 threads. The first is symmetrical, The second is asymmetrical, The third is the same as the first, The fourth is the same as the second but in reverse.' In reality the threadcount is symmetrical, and has been recorded as such in the Tartan Register.
