Tartan Details - MacInnes

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

STA ref: 1464
STWR ref: 1464
Designer: MacInnes, John
Tartan date: 01/01/1908
Registration date: This tartan was recorded prior to the launch of The Scottish Register of Tartans.
Category: Clan/Family
Registration notes: Threadcount recorded by William McInnes in the Public Register of all Arms and Bearings in Scotland, 44/73, 15 November 1960. The Scottish Tartans Society notes for this tartan attribute the design to the 'Onich Grocer' with no further explanation. Further research by Alasdair 'MacInnes' Campbell of Fort William has identified John MacInnes of Onich, who was born around 1851 and was Registrar for Ballachulish and Corran of Ardgour 1874-1920. John MacInnes was also a tailor and weaver and ran a general merchant store from the same premises as his Registry Office. It is said that when King Edward VII was the Prince of Wales he called at John's 'Nether Lochaber Stores' to have an outfit made. It is said that the royal patronage went to John's head - to the disdain of his neighbours.

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.
