The Clan Stewart is a Scottish clan that is recognized by the Court of the Lord Lyon. The clan does not have a chief that is recognized by the Lord Lyon King of Arms, but the Earls of Galloway are considered to be the principal branch of the clan. The Clan Stewart crest badge uses the crest and motto of The Earls of Galloway's arms. The Court of the Lord Lyon also recognizes two other Stewart/Stuart clans: Clan Stuart of Bute and Clan Stewart of Appin. The clan system is kind of like a set of instructions for a recipe. There are three clans, and at present, Clan Stuart of Bute is the only one that has a recognized chief.

What is a Hunting tartan?

Tartans were originally worn by hunters as a form of camouflage. The colors usually found in tartans, such as greens and browns, help the wearer blend in with the natural surroundings associated with hunting.

What does the hunting Stewart tartan look like?

The Stewarts come from a long line of seneschals, or stewards, in Brittan. The first members of the family to be mentioned in historical records are Flaad and his brother Alan, who likely accompanied Henry to England in 1100. There, they were awarded land. The Stewart Hunting Tartan is suitable for any occasion or event. It is typically made from Acrylic Wool and is characterized by dark green, navy blue red, black and yellow shades. These colors will bring the tartan to a lighter tone and give it more balance.

What's the difference between Stuart and Stewart?

The House of Stuart was a royal house in Scotland from 1371 and England from 1603. Its rule was interrupted in 1649 by the establishment of the Commonwealth, but it was restored in 1660. It ended in 1714 when the British crown passed to the House of Hanover. The first spelling of the family name was Stewart, the old Scots version, but during the 16th century, French influence led to the adoption of the spellings Stuart and Steuart because there is no letter "w" in the French alphabet.

The Stewarts are a historic family that can be traced back to Brittany in the 11th century. For generations, they served as stewards to the counts of Dol. In the early 12th century, they migrated to England, and Walter, the third son of the fourth steward of Dol, entered the service of David I, king of Scotland. Later, he was appointed as the king's steward, a position that was confirmed for his family by King Malcolm IV in 1157.

Walter (died 1326) married Marjory, daughter of King Robert I (the Bruce), in 1315. In 1371, their son Robert became the first Stewart king of Scotland as King Robert II. However, the royal Stewarts had an unlucky history marked by sudden death; seven members of the family succeeded to the throne as minors.The direct male line ended with James V's death in 1542. Mary, Queen of Scots (died 1587), was succeeded in 1567 by her only son, James VI (by Henry Stuart, Lord Darnley).

In 1603 James VI, through his great-grandmother Margaret Tudor, daughter of Henry VII of England, inherited the English throne as King James I. After the execution (1649) of James’s son Charles I, the Stuarts were excluded from the throne until the restoration of Charles II in 1660. Charles II was succeeded in 1685 by his Roman Catholic brother James II (died 1701), who so alienated the sympathies of his subjects that in 1688 William, prince of Orange, was invited to come “to the rescue of the laws and religion of England.” James fled, and by the Bill of Rights (1689) and the Act of Settlement (1701), which denied the crown to any Roman Catholic, he and his descendants were excluded from the throne. But Stuarts still ruled in England and Scotland, for William was the son of Charles II’s sister Mary, and his wife Mary was James II’s elder daughter. They became joint sovereigns as William III and Mary II. They left no issue, and the Act of Settlement secured the succession to Mary’s sister Anne (died 1714) and on her death without issue to Sophia, electress of Hanover, a granddaughter of James I; Sophia’s son and heir became George I, first of the British house of Hanover.

The last male Stuarts of the British royal line were James II’s son James Edward (died 1766), the Old Pretender, and his sons Charles Edward (died 1788), the Young Pretender (known as Bonnie Prince Charlie), who died without legitimate issue, and Henry (died 1807), Cardinal Duke of York.
