Tartan Details - Cranston

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

STA ref: 706
STWR ref: 706
Designer: Sobieski Stewarts, The
Tartan date: 01/01/1842
Registration date: This tartan was recorded prior to the launch of The Scottish Register of Tartans.
Category: Clan/Family
Registration notes: Samples in Scottish Tartans Authority Dalgety Collection. Woven sample in Clans Originaux labelled 'Cranston'. VS described it as including two greens ' . . . that of a leaf of a tender ash tree, and the other the colour of grass.' This graphic very close to the Lochcarron colours. Woven sample. References: The Setts No: 35. W & A K Johnston, 1906. D.C Stewart (The Setts of the Scottish Tartans, 1950) would have the light green and dark green transposed but this does not correspond to the Vestiarium Scoticum, a collection put together between 1829-1842 , the only known source for the tartan. The VS version is shown.

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.
