Tartan Details - Ramsay (Red)

The information held within The Scottish Register of Tartans for the "Ramsay (Red)" tartan is shown below. 

STA ref: 1238
STWR ref: 1238
Designer: Sobieski Stewarts, The
Tartan date: 01/01/1842
Registration date: This tartan was recorded prior to the launch of The Scottish Register of Tartans.
Category: Clan/Family
Registration notes: Ramsay was one of the names adopted by members of the Clan MacGregor when their own was proscribed. It is not surprising then that an early MacGregor sett was used as a basis for the Ramsay tartan. It is possible that the tartan was in existence long before the earliest recorded date given. Other notes (Harry Lindley) state: 'The first sight of this tartan was in the Vestiarium Scoticum. The name comes from the Lothian district of Scotland. Ramsay of Dalhousie was created Earl of Dalhousie in 1633. The title is still held by the Ramsays.' Sample in Scottish Tartans Authority's 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.
