Scottish Tartans World Register: Maxwell 
Maxwell Clan Tartan  WR1500



Tartans of the Lowland families were not named until the publication the 'Vestiarium Scoticum' in 1842. The authors, the Sobieski Stuart brothers, enjoyed a popular following amongst the Scottish gentry in the early Victorian era, and in the spirit of the times, added mystery, romance and some spurious historical documentation to the subject of tartans. The Maxwells have, nevertheless, a tartan of at least 150 years antiquity, probably designed by persons of great imagination and flair.
The source of tartan 1500 was: Vestiarium Scoticum
