Tartan Details - Skinner

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

STA ref: 2341
STWR ref: 2341
Designer: Skinner, John
Tartan date: 01/01/1997
Registration date: This tartan was recorded prior to the launch of The Scottish Register of Tartans.
Category: Name
Registration notes: A tartan worn by a John Skinner in 1941. John was born in Dundee in 1873 and his father was a warehouseman in Baxters Mills in Dundee before the family emigrated to the USA in 1880. John's grandson (John H Beach of Yonkers, New York) sought to have the tartan identified by the Tartans Society in 1997 but there was no match so John named it the 'Skinner' in honour of his grandfather and it was recorded as such by Tartans Society. Not before obtaining permission from the Wallace Chief however since the tartan is very close to the Wallace. Can be worn by all Skinners but John Beach would appreciate being contacted for permission (September 2007).

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.
