Scottish Tartans World Register: Gordon of Esslemont 
Gordon of Esslemont Family Tartan  WR1064

This sett is called 'Gordon of Esslemont' according to Captain Wolrige-Gordon of Esslemont in recent research. It was previously listed as 'Ancient Gordon' before the story of its origin came to light. Apparently the Duke of Gordon was offered tartans with one, two, and three stripes when he applied to Forsythe of Huntly to provide kilts for his troops. He chose the single stripe and called in the Heads of the families to choose from the others. Esslemont took the three stripe version.
The source of tartan 1064 was: Paton's collection
