Registration notes: Labeled as Brown of Castledean, 1728. Lady found in her great-g-fathers trunk, Thos. Brown, born 1728 in Castledean, information 1993 from Ingles Buchan (Textiles) who obtained from batch of literature received from Blair Urquhart via Scottish Tartan Society files. Modification of Stewart. Scottish Tartan Society entry at #1145 (original Scottish Tartans Authority reference): 'A piece of plaid owned by Mme. Rolland de Maubeuge which belonged to her great grandfather Thomas Brown born 1786 at Castlehaven. Source said to be the highly dubious Cromarty Manuscript.' Castle Haven is just south of Stonehaven whereas there doesn't appear to be a Castledean in Scotland. #1145 has a dark green band in the red whereas #3738 has a blue. Not known which is right.

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.
