Tartan Details - Stewart Hunting

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

STA ref: 6327
STWR ref: none
Designer: Wilsons of Bannockburn
Tartan date: 01/01/1819
Registration date: This tartan was recorded prior to the launch of The Scottish Register of Tartans.
Category: Clan/Family
Restrictions:
Registration notes: An asymmetric pattern. Scottish Tartans Society notes: The pattern books of the old firm of weavers, Wilson's of Bannockburn, provide the first record of this sett which was not published until 1886 when James Grant included it in, 'The Tartans of the Clans of Scotland'. The pattern is unusual in that the half sett is not reversed to create a symmetrical square. Instead the full sett is simply repeated from right to left across the cloth. There is no reliable explanation of why the Hunting Stewart should be regarded as a 'General' tartan.

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.
