Re: Is there a tartan?

In Reply to: Is there a tartan? by Judith Hall of 229

I and many other before me have conducted exhaustive research here and abroad to determine where the Frierson homeplace is in Northern Ireland or Scotland according to the legend.

Alas, as I concluded in my book America's Friersons Ancestry Book (1996) there is ample evidence in birth and marriage records of Friersons in England proper but not a bit as to any connection to Northern Ireland or Scotland.

The coats of arms for friers suppose that they are for Friersons as well but there is too much evidence of a distinct English family of Friersons in 1379 and 1530.

Plenty of Friersons have McCauleys, McKnights etc and can claim those lineages to wear a tartan
