The Smith's sources included the findings of George Hunter, an Army clothier, who toured the Highlands in search of old tartans prior to 1822. MacAlisters are descendants of Donald of Islay, Lord of the Isles. Contemporary accounts of Flora MacDonald (1746) suggest that MacAlisters wore the MacDonald tartan at that time.
