Penman Family Genealogy Forum
On my visit to scotland, I got a print out of the Penman name.I would give you the whole message but it is too long.But at the bottom It states TARTAN:Although many local names have their own tartan there is a Roxburgh Tartan available to any other name from the district-in fact there are two i.e. Red and the Green or hunting.They were first recorded in 1850 which meant they were in use before that.The designer and origin are uncertain. Yardage is currently featured in the ranges of several Scottish Tartan manufacturers in the Red Version but the Green is much more difficult to obtain.
It shows on the botton of the scroll, Red and Green plaid.Tartan of District of Roxburgh.Some Penmans did live in that district.
what I was told is they sometimes would use the colors of whatever district they lived in. I do have a book on all the .Tartans Hope this helps, Betty
