Tartan Details - Connel

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

STA ref: 1854
STWR ref: 1854
Designer: Not Specified
Tartan date: 01/01/1888
Registration date: This tartan was recorded prior to the launch of The Scottish Register of Tartans.
Category: Clan/Family
Registration notes: A sample of this is said to be in the Provost MacBean Collection and the Scottish Tartans Society notes say: 'Whether the Wallace, which is known to date from at least 1842, and the Connel tartan are related is uncertain, although the close similarity leads one to suspect that the later 'Connel' is based on the Wallace. The Connels and MacConnels are both claimed as septs of Clan Donald.' Sindex notes say Mackinlay strip from MacBean Collection, Inverness. A Connal (Red) sett was described in Nelson, Shaw & Macgregor catalogue in 1888. In James Cant's book of handpainted colour strips there is a handwritten note (possibly Jack Dalgety's) saying 'Pattern 1882.' Small woven sample.

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.
