History of The Douglas Tartan

William de Douglas was the first to appear with the name c.1200. He had six sons who created powerful lines of influence in Scottish politics and land ownership becoming a major Border family.

Their personal fortune often became linked to those of Scotland. This was the reason for the forfeiture of their lands in 1455 but by then they had established the dynasties of the Earl of Morton, Douglas of Annandale, Moray, Ormond, Angus and Forfar and the Dukes of Touraine, Queensferry, Buccleuch and Hamilton. The male line continued until the death of the 4th Lord Douglas(1857) when his niece Lady Elizabeth Douglas and Countess of Home inherited and as a result Lord Home of the Hirsh became the feudal Baron of Douglas. The matter as to whom is chief of the clan is yet to be established. This tartan was first recoded in James Logan's “The Scottish Gael or Celtic Manners, as Preserved among the Highlanders” 1831
