Scottish Tartans World Register: Wishart 
Wishart Hunting Family Tartan  WR2105



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 2105 was: Dr David Wishart
