Tartan Details - Newlands of Lauriston

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

STA ref: 2175
STWR ref: 2175
Designer: Scarlett MBE, Jamie
Tartan date: 01/03/1986
Registration date: This tartan was recorded prior to the launch of The Scottish Register of Tartans.
Category: Clan/Family
Restrictions: Yes. For the use of members of the Newlands family.

Registration notes: Designed by Jamie Scarlett, MBE, for Willy Newlands of Lauriston, Baron of Miltonhaven (Lauriston Castle, St Cyrus) to be worn by members of the Newlands family. The earliest chief of the Name, Jasper Newlands of that Ilk, was recorded in Nithsdale in 1469. The 1986 design, originally named 'Walker Newlands' in honour of Lady Lauriston, whose maiden/professional name is Dorothy Walker, became 'Newlands of Lauriston' in 1988 and was made freely available to the clan. It is based on a family pattern, surviving as 'a rather bloodstained bit of rag incorporated into a family cushion', similar to Cameron of Erracht. Also known as 'Falconers' Tartan' in memory of a Newlands ancestor who was a Royal Falconer at the Court of King James IV at Linlithgow c1495.' (Scottish Tartans Society Sindex notes).
Information notes: Woven sample in the Scottish Tartans Authority's Scarlett Collection.

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.
