|Scottish Tartans World Register: Elphinstone
|Elphinstone Clan Tartan WR115
|The village of Elphinstone is next to Tranent near
Edinburgh in East Lothian. Sir Henry Elphinstone of
Pittendriech in Midlothian was created Baron Elphinstone
in 1509 and fell at Flodden Field. The Elphinstone tartan
first appeared in the text of the Vestiarium Scoticum
(1842). It is similar to some extent with the Montgomerie
tartan and to the Montgomerie Hunting sett, suggesting a
link to an early provenance. D.W. Stewart (1893)
maintained that he could date the Montgomerie of
Eglinton to 1707.
