Ivester Tartan

 

This tartan is the Sinclair Tartan. According to Janice Ivester of Alpharetta, Georgia who has done the primary and basically ALL the Ivester research, we Ivesters come under the Sinclair Tartan:

" The Isbister family comes under the unbrella of the Sinclair Clan. The Sinclair family is also from the Orkenys; their history is an exciting one, and many Orkney families aligned themselves with the Sinclairs. A Sinclair was a very good friend of Robert the Bruce, and was killed on a crusade in which he was carrying Robert's heart to the Holy Land. The Sinclair family today has some pretty convincing evidence that a Henry Sinclair, Jarl of Orkeny sailed to America's coasts long before Columbus."
