Title: Livingstone Tartan Mystery Update

Hi All,
Thought I should start a new thread on the topic of our clan tartan research. 

As an update, since determining that there is little chance that the Highland Society of London has an original swatch of what became known as Livingstone Tartan 1003, I have discovered something interesting. It would appear that the Highland Society of London in 1815 did not contact many of the principal clans in the CHief's Movern/Mull area. Or at least that it what is seems to me. Stewart of Appin, Macgilveray, MacLean and Macinnes did not make it in the Society of London Collection and yet a few years later Wilsons acknowledged in their 1819 collection that they had one pattern (447) from Clan MacGilverary and two paterns (58)and (387) from Clan MacLean of Duart. Another local tartan attributed to  MacLean of Duart (57) was identified in the Cockburn Collection.

I found two Macdougall patterns, Macdonnell of Kepoch (507) and two patterns (540) (1640) from MacKinnons from the Highland SOciety of London Collection, but a significant lack of tartans from Mull/Isle of Lismore/Movern area clans. So far anyways. 

I am going to check to see what other clans might have been contacted by the Highland SOciety, but so far anyways it looks like our clan and many of its neighbours including the Stewarts of Appin were ignored in the 1815/1816 project. 

regards
