Scottish Tartans World Register: Bryce 
Bryce Family Tartan  WR1537



The threadcount for the Bryce tartan was supplied by J. Dalgety Esq., of Forfar who in turn obtained it from the late James Cant of Dundee. There is a marked similarity with the Bruce tartan, but there is no historical link between the names. Bruce derives from Robert de Bruis (or Brus), whereas Bryce derives from St Bricius, a Gaulish saint from the 5th century. An old Lennox family of Bryce is known to have fought along side the MacFarlanes in 1619.
The source of tartan 1537 was: James Cant
