Fiddes - 1790 (Clan)
  • Notes: The count was taken from a manuscript account book in the National Museum of Antiquities of Scotland in Queen Street, Edinburgh. Rock & Wheel was an early type of soft tartan made with a 'rock-spun' (a spindle) spun warp and a wheel spun weft. This tartan is mentioned by Telford Dunbar in his 1962 'History of Highland Dress' (Page145) when he states that it appeared in William Wilson's stock list of 1800.
