Scottish Tartans World Register: Cunningham 
Cunningham Clan Tartan  WR1200



The origin of the name comes from the district of Cunningham in Ayrshire. Alexander de Cunningham was created 1st Earl of Glencairn in 1488. The family is now widespread throughout Scotland. Cunningham was one of the names adopted by the MacGregors when their own was proscribed. There is a similarity with the MacGregor tartan but the true origin is unknown as the claims of antiquity made in the Vestiarium Scoticum, where the Cunningham tartan was first recorded, are unreliable.
The source of tartan 1200 was: Vestiarium Scoticum
