|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.
