Scottish Tartans World Register: Aberdeen 
Aberdeen District Tartan  WR1801



There is evidence to suggest that the sett was introduced and named by Wilsons of Bannockburn during the period 1746-82 when tartan was proscribed by law. Aberdeen is one of Scotland's oldest district tartans. The first documentary evidence is contained in a purchase order, addressed to Wilson's, from Scott and Anderson, dated 20th June 1794.
The source of tartan 1801 was: Wilson's of Bannockburn '1800' MS
