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.

Here's the Butler tartan:

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.

He may not, but I thought it was interesting to find.

CLAN OOTLAND Master of Arms ( Puffer) reporting in.

I have a Lot of Scots blood running through my veins, BUT all is LOWLAND ( who did not wear Kilts ( until Victorian Times) & did not have the "Clan System per se.

But I do have a "Family Tartan" = BLACK DOUGLAS ( my direct Rel. SIR JAMES DOUGLAS ( one of the "Bruce's LT.s with Wallace) & we are NOT a Part of the "current Douglass') My rel. came to the "Colonies in 1622, 1 step ahead of the "Watch"

This tartan was registered in 1920 to honor him.( Sir James)

Here is a picture

I just fell in love with that 2nd Auld Lang Syne tartan - with the teals and purples (my colors, of course). I have to find out how to buy some of that fabric, or get something made in it.

No tartan, no clan? You can still wear several of them. There are some now for certain states, USA etc. I am at work but have a book at home with tartan pics. I will try and scan some.

Aithníonn ciaróg ciaróg eile

No scottish blood whatsoever or name heritage to trace. (Not even Irish.)

My last name is my own, by my mother's choice.

So in a a way, my clan is a clan of one which began (and will end) with me.

I gleefully, inspired by Gerry's 40th, was inspired to go to the local kilt warehouse and finally purchase the official state tartan for California which is based on the tartan of Naturalist John Muir!

www.sportkilt.com has universal tartans and nontraditional kilts.

I showed my kilt off during Christmas time to coworkers and family--Grandma asked when did I go to Scotland. Coworkers commented on expecting traditionalstyle dress like in the I love Lucy's -I'll take the highroad- skit.

I understand Gerry doesn't have an official kilt since his family is of Irish descent.

Randa, :D

I checked for a few weeks and I came up with this tartan for the "Calhoun" family. It is Irish though and I married into this family - so does this count!

So many beautiful colors in each of the different tartans...

Well, I'm 100% Irish and I didn't think we had a tartan (I'm still not sure we do...lol) but this is what I found:

One of my grandfathers (my dad's dad) was from County Cavan:

My grandmother on my father's side came from Tipperary:

My mom's parents were both from Northern Ireland and so I guess the Ulster Red will have to do....

Landa, I can't wait to see what you come up with (and I know you put so much work into doing these every year.....Thank you so much for your generosity).

hugs,

Sue
