|Scottish Tartans World Register: Raeburn
|Raeburn Family Tartan WR1275
|Very little is known about the origin of the tartan other
than that it first appeared in the trade lists of Ross's and
Johnston's around 1930. It bears a family resemblance to
the MacLeod illustrated in the Vestiarium Scoticum in
1842 but the yellow bands are considerably narrower and
there is no central red stripe. The name derives from the
old lands of Rayburn in the Parish of Dunlop in Ayrshire.
Undoubtedly the most famous person of the name was Sir
Henry Raeburn (1756 - 1823).
