Tartan Details - Smith (Sir William)

The information held within The Scottish Register of Tartans for the "Smith (Sir William)" tartan is shown below. 

STA ref: 65
STWR ref: 65
Designer: Not Specified
Tartan date: 01/01/1975
Registration date: This tartan was recorded prior to the launch of The Scottish Register of Tartans.
Category: Corporate
Registration notes: Sindex checked May 2002. 'Designed for Sir William Smith (1854 - 1914) Founder of the Boys' Brigade.' Compare this to #65 (original Scottish Tartans Authority reference) - same but for lack of red lines. Mysterious. Scottish Tartans Society notes: For more than 400 years a family of Smiths were Lairds in the parish of Strathblane at Craigend and armourers to the Barony of Mugdock. It is based on the Hunting Gow tartan. Originally it was his own personal tartan but now it is generally available for all of that name. See MacNeil from Wilson's '1819' pattern book.

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.
