Calling all clans!

Recommended Posts

As some of you may know, I have been doing cookies for the past few years and will continue to do so as long as I am able and as long as you want them. Well I'm coming to you for help this time. I already have it in my head what I'm going to do be doing but I would love to have some input.

Now my own family (believe it or not) has ties to Clan Drummond and my husband's to Clan MacBeth. What I want from you is who do you belong to? What's your clan tartan?

If you could provide a picture of the tartan as well, that would be great.

Thanks,

Landa

I am of Scots Irish blood (and Spanish!), but my dad's family had been Irish so long, the Scots connection has been dimmed. Therefore, I wear the Flower of Scotland plaid which is more universal.

Mine is from the Murray clan. There are actually two and I'm not sure which one my family originates from. This is on my father's side with the other half being of Native American heritage.

The Murray of Atholl

Hope this helps.

How about Scotland's flag, Landalish?

There's a plethora of Stewart tartans. I'm sure mine must be the royal one, though, don't you think?

My family (on my dads side) descends from Clan Johnstone (southern Scotland) and in Ireland, Clan McQuillan. I don't know the tartan for McQuillan but here is the Johnstone tartan:

Oh, just found this bit of interesting history on the McQuillans, seems they liked a fight!!

:lol: Thanks, Suzie! I had to marry into it, though! :lmao:

Also don't forget about the Lion Rampart.

I thought of that, too, D, but wasn't sure how that would look on a cookie. But heck, Landa can create anything. I'm sure that ramparting lion wouldn't get the best of her!

His family was Irish and he's a Butler. Already looked into it. Apparently Irish clans go by district and not family name but when I looked up either or, its the same exact tartan.

That's a really pretty one! Very "jeans" friendly! Except, I'm still trying to figure out how Landa's going to make plaid cookies?

I thought he told Jay Leno his family doesn't have a tartan and the GB.net lists him as not having a family tartan

I'm just asking out of curiosity, like wouldn't he know :)

All those tartans photos that you posted are all very pretty, I love plaids and have so many plaids in my wardrobe especially around winter time.

About those cookies, I guess it's only for the Gals convention...too bad I would love to see what they look like ;)

lol! I had to edit because I wrote he doesn't have a family instead of a family tartan oops!

I think my brother's twin beds had a spread that looked like that pattern! :lol: That was MANY years ago!

And *guest*, it's the Irish Butler tartan, whether or not Gerry claims it.

I don't have a clan that I know of. However, back when GALS was brand new I created the MacSporran Clan just for fun only to find out sometime later at a Scottish Festival that there really IS such a clan and I bought a tam in the tartan. I was blown away especially when I read the origins of the clan: MacSporran means 'son of the purse', and the clan is said to have been hereditary pursebearers to the lords of the Isles. So the MacSporrans were the Highlanders' ACCOUNTANTS!! And I'm an ACCOUNTANT! Hee hee it was meant to me. Here is our tartan.

Here I am wearing the tam on Burns Night at Oran Mor in Glasgow in 2006. It is likely to make an appearance sometime in Las Vegas as well.

I wanna play! :D

So my name is Kennerley... the Kennerley's haven't lived in Scotland since the 1500s, so there's no "Kennerley" tartan... but there is a tartan for the derivative "Kennedy"s!

Kennedy Ancient

Kennedy Modern

Also, tracing my paternal lineage far enough, I'm a Carrick!

Carrick Modern

Last, but not least, my grandmother was an O'Neill, one of the few Irish families with their own tartan!

O'Neill Tartan

I love ancestry. It makes me feel so connected to the world. :wuv:

Thanks for explaining that :)

Not being Scottish or Irish obviously my family has no tartan but we have a family name crest and a town crest but I love plaid material regardless ;)

For RandomLanda:

I found this photo if it helps with some ideas for your cookies...
