|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.
