Waverley Scotland Genuine Tartan Cloth Commonplace Notebooks – Black Watch (large)Waverley Scotland Genuine Tartan Cloth Commonplace Notebooks – Black Watch (large)Our price: £14.99ViewThe Black Watch tartan is a rich, dark green and blue laced with black .The Black Watch was formed in the wake of the unsuccessful 1715 Jacobite Rebellion, where James Francis Edward Stuart (1688–1766), son of the deposed James II, fought to put the exiled House of Stuart back on the throne. From 1725, General George Wade (1673–1748) formed six military companies from the clans of the Campbells, Grants, Frasers and Munros. They were stationed in small detachments across the Highlands to prevent fighting among the clans, deter raiding, and to assist in enforcing laws against the carrying of weapons. In short, they were tasked with protecting the interests of the Hanoverian throne in Scotland. Wade issued an order in May 1725, for the companies all to wear plaid of the same sort and colour. Their original uniform was made from a 12-yard long plaid of the tartan that we know now as the Black Watch tartan. They wore a scarlet jacket and waistcoat, with the tartan cloth worn over the left shoulder. The name is said to come from the dark tartan they wore, hence “black”, and from the fact that they were policing the land, hence “watch”.
Waverley Scotland Genuine Tartan Cloth Commonplace Notebooks – Buchanan Reproduction (large)Waverley Scotland Genuine Tartan Cloth Commonplace Notebooks – Buchanan Reproduction (large)Our price: £14.99ViewThe Buchanan Reproduction tartan has a warm palette of reds, browns, golds and greens.It is claimed by the Clan Buchanan that it can trace its line back to a son of one of the kings of Ulster, Anselan O Kyan, who came to Argyll in 1016. He fought for King Malcolm II against the Danes and, as reward, was given the lands of Buchanan, to the east of Loch Lomond near Killearn in Stirlingshire. Two Gaelic names are given as the root of the placename Buchanan, Mac a Chanonaich (“the son of the canon”) and Buth Chanain (meaning “house or seat of the canon”).In 1225 another Anselan, recorded as Absalom of Buchanan, was granted lands in Buchanan by Maldouen, Earl of Lennox (d. 1250). And in 1231, King Alexander II (1214–49) made a charter awarding other lands in Buchanan to Gilbert, Seneschal (an administrative officer in the houses of important nobles) of the Earl of Lennox. The Buchanans supported King Robert the Bruce during the Wars of Independence. They fought at the battles of Flodden, Pinkie and Langside. The clan prospered in the time of David II in the 14th century, however, towards the end of the 17th century the house and lands of Buchanan were sold to the Marquess of Montrose, Chief of Clan Graham.Reproduction tartans are also sometimes called “weathered” or “muted”. The tartan itself is identical to the tartan of that clan name, but the colours are “muted” because they have been reproduced to match pieces of cloth, found in homesteads and battlefields, that have been weathered by exposure to the Scottish climate.Waverley Scotland Genuine Tartan Cloth Commonplace Notebooks – Caledonia (large)Waverley Scotland Genuine Tartan Cloth Commonplace Notebooks – Caledonia (large)Our price: £14.99ViewThe vibrant Caledonia tartan has a sea-green background overlaid with broad red banding, with accents of black, white and yellow.Waverley Scotland Genuine Tartan Cloth Commonplace Notebooks – Elliot (large)Waverley Scotland Genuine Tartan Cloth Commonplace Notebooks – Elliot (large)Our price: £14.99ViewThe Elliot tartan is a bright blue with black banding and bright red accents.The Elliots appear as a clan with a chief in the Scottish Borders around the 15th century, with territory around Upper Liddesdale. They were notorious Border Reivers – families, from both England and Scotland, who raided the Border lands. The Elliots are said to be of Breton origin, coming to Britain with William the Conqueror’s invading army in 1066. Elliots – with many varied spellings of the name – settled all over the British Isles. They are based at Glenshee in Angus – Elliots gave their name to Elliot Water in Angus – but made a move to Teviotdale in the Borders around the time of Robert the Bruce.The principal family in the early 15th century was Elliot of Redheugh. In 1426, a John Elwalde of Teviotdale is recorded. In 1476, Robert Ellot of Redheugh appears as the 10th chief of the clan. Robert Ellot built a strong tower on a cliff overlooking the ford on Hermitage Water in Liddesdale in 1470. This was just one of about 100-strong towers around Liddesdale which belonged to the Ellots and which they shared with the Clan Armstrong, another Border Reiver clan. The Elliots of Stobs, also in the Borders, can be traced back to Gawain Elliot of Stobs in the late 16th century, who was descended from the Elliots of Redheugh. Elliot is an adapted version of the old English name Elwold. There is also a theory that it is derived from the name of an old Breton tribe, Halgoët, based on the Breton word for willow or saugh tree. The names Elwald, Elwalde and Ellot were common variations.Waverley Scotland Genuine Tartan Cloth Commonplace Notebooks – Isle of Skye (large)Waverley Scotland Genuine Tartan Cloth Commonplace Notebooks – Isle of Skye (large)Our price: £14.99ViewThe Isle of Skye tartan blends rich, heathery purples with shades of misty and mossy greens.The Isle of Skye, long celebrated for its beauty in poetry and song, is situated off the west coast of Scotland, connected to the mainland by a bridge. The island’s largest town is Portree, famous for the brightly coloured houses in its harbour.Skye’s history includes a period of Norse rule and domination by Clan MacLeod and Clan Donald. It suffered particularly in the 18th-century following the Jacobite Risings, and with the breaking up of the clan system, and following the Highland Clearances that led entire communities to have to leave their land – some via forced emigrations. After the failed Jacobite Rebellion of 1745, Flora MacDonald helped to rescue Prince Charles Edward Stuart from the Hanoverian troops, disguising him and taking him to Skye to hide.Waverley Scotland Genuine Tartan Cloth Commonplace Notebooks – Royal Stewart (large)Waverley Scotland Genuine Tartan Cloth Commonplace Notebooks – Royal Stewart (large)Our price: £14.99ViewThe Royal Stewart tartan is a rich red with black banding, crossed with a myriad of yellow, blue, green and white.The progenitor of this noble family was a Breton, Alan Fitz Flaad (fl. c. 1090c. 1120). In England, Alan was appointed Sheriff of Shropshire by Henry I. His son Walter Fitz Alan (1106–1177), was created High Steward of Scotland in the reign of David I (1084–1153), an office where the duties included managing the King’s finances. The title was made hereditary in the family by Malcolm IV. Walter, the 3rd High Steward of Scotland (d. 1246), assumed the name of his office as his family surname, Stewart. Walter the 6th High Steward (1296–1327) married Marjory Bruce (d. 1246), the daughter of King Robert the Bruce (1274–1329). When David II died (1324–1371), he was succeeded by Walter Stewart’s son, Robert (1316–1390), 1st of the Royal House of Stewart. King Robert II’s eldest son John, succeeded as Robert III (1337–1405). The royal line of male Stewarts was uninterrupted until the reign of Mary, Queen of Scots (1542–1587). Mary was executed for supposedly plotting against Elizabeth I of England. Her son James VI became James I of England (1566–1625) and ruled for 57 years. His son Charles I was beheaded for defying the government and Charles II was deposed because of his religion. James VII and II, married to Mary of Modena, produced a Catholic heir, James Francis Edward Stuart. For this James II was deposed and the family exiled in France. In 1702, claiming his father’s lost throne, James Francis was attainted for treason in London, and his titles forfeited. The Jacobite Risings of 1715 and 1745 in Scotland, aimed, but failed, to put a Stewart (now Stuart) back on the Scottish throne.The Royal Stewart “sett” is known as “the Royal Tartan”. The Stewarts have several tartans, the Royal being the most famous.Your brand here? Give a gorgeous notebook with style.Your brand here?
