Scottish Tartans World Register: Wishart 
Wishart Dress Family Tartan  WR2104



The Wisharts of Pittarrow and Logie Wishart were a lowland family dating from around the 12th Century. The family's origins are unknown, but the name Guiscard, Wiscard, Wishart, meaning 'cunning' is Norman-French. We have also sought to associate the Wishart tartan with that of another family by virtue of the marriage of a Sir John Wishart to Jean, daughter of William Douglas, 9th Earl of Angus in the 16th Century. The Wishart tartan combines the Wallace and Douglas tartans in an original new sett.
The source of tartan 2104 was: Dr David Wishart
