  • Notes: No details of this tartan which was discovered in 1985 in the Paton Collection when it was first loaned to the Tartans Society. It could be family (there is a family jewellers in Perth called Hamilton & Inches) or it could be connected with two areas known as the "Inches of Perth" (an Inch is a stretch of low lying land near a river.) 'Folk say the Mercers tried to cheat the town. When for two Inches they did win six feet.' This alludes to the exchange of the two Inches of Perth (where the famous clan battle was fought in 1396) for the right to be buried in St. John's Church, Perth.
