The e-mail address is posted several times on this page.

I would like one but not sure which color name is correct. I want the one with the red and green, not the one that looks orange and blue. So is the one I want called Mac Bean modern or ancient?

How much. Where do I order. Going to Scotland in a few days. Do u know of any place there that would have them or kilts

I'd that 90.34 US dollars? I assume it is shipped from the UK so tax and shipping is added. Does anybody know the final cost to a US address?

Thanks for sharing that! I just bought two ๐Ÿ˜€

Can you give me a price or website please?

Christina Caraway McBean this would make a good Christmas gift for me ๐Ÿ™‚

Hi! My aunt picked me up a MacBean tartan scarf a few years ago. I love it, but it's sort of short. Has anyone found them in additional sizes? ... See MoreSee Less

Comment on Facebook

A scarf is generally a certain size. Retailers will usually have sashes for sale which are longer and more expensive. I have anumber of scarves in different tartans associated with the MacBeans and McElvains. For some, I got the material and tried to match the size of scarves I already had. Once you order material, you couldn probably have them make it in whatever size you want. The scarves I have just go around the neck and go through the snaps on my jacket collars. They hang down to around the waist.

I bought a clan sash from scotclans.com.

We have a good website, this Facebook page and another "unofficial page on Facebook. There should be a list of games we are sure to have tents at at the top of the page.

There are quite a few members of the Clan MacBean in the Richmond area, especially south of Richmond and into central and western North Carolina (where I originally came from). Most of this line dropped the "Mac" quite a while ago and now go by Bean or Beane. The Clan MacBean website is a great place to start looking.

My husband and I are traveling to Inverness next week for the first time. I have not done a lot of genealogical research but do know that my ancestor Angus McBean (b. 9/1/1758) was from Dores, married Mary Church Murphy and they eventually emmigrated to New Brunswick, Canada in 1783. His father was John McBean (b. 1730), and mother Janet Living. I wondered if any of you have connections to this family tree and still live around Inverness. It would be amazing to meet some distant relatives. Thank you in advance for any information. ... See MoreSee Less

Comparing the late 90s/early 2000 MacBean blankets to the recent order.
The two blanket photo shows the earlier order on the left and the recent on the right. The blanket without a tag is from the old order from Locharron. It is New Wool but in a brushed wool finish which isn't as tight a pattern. The newer order with a tag is also New Wool but a tight weave from House of Tartan.

Someone has asked about MacBean Hunting tartan. I found the scarf I have in Hunting to go along with all the rest of the MacBean, McElvain, and Chattan tartan scarves I use when I set up a clan tent. To be perfectly honest, I don't know how I ended up with it, but it is, as I suspected, from Locharron. The Chief likes Locharron and I'm pretty sure that the group that ordered Hunting Kilts years ago got theirs from Locharron. If you can get the thread count from Locharron, anyone can weave it. The Chief "recognizes" the Hunting from them and there can be variations as you go from weaver to weaver. ... See MoreSee Less

Received the following from House of Tartan:

Anyone who ordered 1 single rug has had their order shipped.

People who ordered 3 or more rugs we have emailed to see if they can wait for the new batch to come in- some have said they will and others we have sent an initial 1 rug out to them with the rest to follow.

There are a few people who ordered 2 rugs and we sorting those ones out this week

All the Macelvain rug orders have been dispatched.

Most of these orders have gone by airmail which takes a couple of weeks to arrive.

Yours were shipped on Friday by DHL so should be with you any day now.

I think apart from you there was only two others who had their order shipped out by DHL courier and they should also have their orders any day now.

Again, you'll have to get in touch with House of Tartan. I ordered 6 and it came to less than $100 each but they are all shipped together.

You'll have to get in touch with House of Tartan through their webpage or their e-mail address which I put on a number of the posts I put on facebook.

I have a lap blanket in clan tartan that belonged to my great-great-grandmother, Martha Bean Mitchell. One of my few true treasures.

I put this on so people could see a little Scottish Country Dancing. When I first got into my Scottish roots, I started on the chanter and was also doing Highland Dancing. I really loved Scottish Country Dancing, but like Scottish Festivals in general, things have been in a down swing for a while. There are Scottish Country Dance groups all over the USA, most under the guise of the Royal Scottish Country Dance Society. Check 'em out!

Ian is getting nostalgic as his Mother was born in Paisley.......before moving to Preswick......

It's amazing how many I know from around Paisley.

My 6th Great-grandfather is Captain William R. "Billy" Bean. He is of the Virginia Patriarchs. He was the first white settler of Tennessee and his Son Russell was the first documented white born in Tennessee. The Beans are known as the first family of Tennessee. Capt. Bean traveled and explored with Daniel Boone. My 10th Great-grandfather and Capt. Beans 4th Great-grandfather was William Bean of Strathdearn, Inverness-shire, Scotland. He was the MacBean who came to America and changed the name to Bean. ... See MoreSee Less

Robert Bean, second son of William, is my ancestor. I have friend whose ancestor is his oldest son, William. Hi, Cousin!

Our genealogy department is trying to research lines in Australia, Canada, and Scotland to add to what we have on John Bean of Exeter. I'm sure they would appreciate whatever you have. They are under contacts on the Clan Association website.

My 6th Great-grandfather is also Capt. William R. Bean. We are descendants of his son John (1760-1815). My anscentors eventually settled in Greenwood, Arkansas. My mom, Meta Faye (1936-2016) was born in Ft. Smith, AR. They changed the spelling to Been. My mom's Great-grandfather, Rufus Been and her Great- great-grandfather, Hazzard Been were both thrown in jail during the Civil War when Rufus refused to be drafted into the Confederacy Army on the advice of his father, Hazzard. A sympathetic guard helped them escape. No telling what our family tree would look like if they had not escaped!

Ron, please email me at genealogist@clanmacbean.org so we can get your line on the Clan web site. Sondra has already contacted me, and Heather is welcome, also! :))

Greetings Ron, Captain Bean is my 7th Great-Uncle. William Bean Sr (born around 1700) is my 7th Great-Grandfather. I have traced my ancestry of the Beans back to Bean Macdhomhnil "Mor" born before 1275 in Scotland.
