Tartan Details - MacPherson of Cluny (Black and White)

The information held within The Scottish Register of Tartans for the "MacPherson of Cluny (Black and White)" tartan is shown below. 

STA ref: 1830
STWR ref: 1830
Designer: Not Specified
Tartan date: 01/01/1850
Registration date: This tartan was recorded prior to the launch of The Scottish Register of Tartans.
Category: Clan/Family
Registration notes: Said to be the threadcount registered with the Lord Lyon but this does not appear in the Lord Lyon's books. This is the same as ITI #1872 but with the yellow line between the two whites, replaced with white. Cluny MacPherson had this to say about it to the Smith brothers in 1850: 'The light one enclosed by you was known as Breacan Glas (the Pied Wagtail) long before John Stuart (one of the Sobieski brothers) was heard of in this country, although I rather think the addition of the yellow stripe was introduced by him, or rather taken from his MS; but at all events the Tartan is an old MacPherson.'

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.
