A collection of historical and genalogical records
I was asked recently if I knew the origins of the Inglis family right to wear the Douglas Hunting tartan. of course, I don't!
The Inglis are a sept of the Douglases, and I presume different septs have the right to wear different Douglas tartans.
I had a look at my own website to see what we say about tartans - and found that the Hunting tartan was not even listed! It is now. I have also taken to the opportunity, using material kindly provided from Scottish History Online, to update my records.
So, this is a plea for anyone who knows about tartan to lend a hand to clear up who wears what - and why.
