If you are a member of our Clan organization, you can use our clan genealogist to help research your line. We are probably one of the most documented clans. Check out the clan website at clanmacbean.org .

There used to be MacBeans at Stone Mountain, in Georgia. My uncle was part of that for many years before he passed. Did they all move away?

There's usually a good crew of us at Pleasanton, CA on Labor Day weekend. The games there are hosted by the Caledonian Club of San Francisco.

Jusy beginning to do research on my fathers name. Very happy to have found this page. ... See MoreSee Less

Whatever you need on McElvain genealogy, let me know. If I can't find it, you can use the Clan MacBean genealogist, but you need to be a member of the Clan organization. As a McElvain, I strongly urge all McElvains to join the Clan organiation as an umbrella for all the spellings........

I started an official Facebook page for the McElvain spellings as the "House of Grimmet" from the Lairds that were the main line of the family that has been traced.

Ok. Thank you.

How do i join ?

The options for membership in Clan MacBean are at clanmacbean.org/Shop/#New. Just type in "House of Grimmet" on the Facebook search page and request to join and I will okay you.

Clan MacBean

The latest from House of Tartan

Ok thanks will tell them to go ahead with the light blue version of the MacBean CAD and the MacElvain as per the only CAD sent.

We have left the rugs open on the site for now as we will be weaving a few more than we have orders for so if any more trickle in we will catch them.

Final count was MacElvain 24 MacBean 82, Including the ones you wanted. So will do 35 MacElvain and 92 MacBean

I will get a confirmed delivery date for you and then you can post it online so people know when to start expecting them.

For those interested in the Clan MacBean threadcount, this is what House of Tartan gave me -

The basic count we have on file for the tartan on the register is

G12W4R8DR8G4DR8R8W4K4G24K4W4B8LB4W4LB4B8W4R98

The count is the same for both versions just DR dark red changes to the Purple and LB – light blue changes to Dark Blue in the other one

When Clan MacBean ordered some material years ago, the company that made it used the purple and dark blue instead of the light blue and dark red. The blankets will have the light blue and no purple.

Just got the latest from House of Tartan -

Just an update for you.
We are going to roll the rugs over for 1 more weekend before closing off the order book first thing on Monday morning and putting them into production so an extra couple of days for any last minute guys to get the order in.
Currently have 80 MacBean and 22 MacElvain (including your 4)
We will probably do an extra 10 over and above what we have orders for
Will confirm on Monday when the order is finalised.

There was a family, the Bains of Tulloch who were aligned with the Clan Mackay and were not a part of Clan MacBean.

The Clan Mackay was pretty much NW Scotland while Clan MacBean was in the Inverness area.

House of Tartan has e-mailed all those who expressed an interest in purchasing a Clan MacBean Modern or McElvain Ancient family tartan lap blanket with instructions on ordering them through the House of Tartan webpage. So far, only 50 of the over 70 Clan MacBean blanket orders have been verified/followed through. All of the McElvain orders have been. While there will be a few extra blankets produced, I certainly wouldn't depend on them being there for long. If you haven't verified your order, DO IT NOW! ... See MoreSee Less

alan@house-of-tartan.co.uk is the e-mail for the guy at House of Tartan. I think they took the MacBean and McElvain tartans off the selection and closed the orders, but I'm sure if you contact Alan, you'll be able to re-establish your order or get one of the extra blankets they will be producing....

I accidentally deleted the email, can someone give me the website and item number for this blanket so I can order

I was able to order my lap blanket this morning, i'm so happy about it!

Yes I'm wanting the clan MacBean

If you ordered a lap blanket, there will be a link on the e-mail you will receive from House of Tartan (it didn't come through when I copied the e-mail they sent) with a picture of the presumed Clan MacBean blanket. I am not happy with the purple tinge - it may just be the picture. I sent them a picture of the ones we ordered years ago (the same picture I posted a while back) to try and make sure we get the right colors. ... See MoreSee Less

You will get an e-mail from House of Tartan to complete the process and it will be sent from House of Tartan to you.

Ordered mine from a link from Alan in my email. Do they come direct to us from his shop?

Hi Scott,

Just to say the rug is now online and can be ordered straight off the site see here

MacBean Lambswool Rug

The select tartan option will let people change between MacBean Modern and MacElvain Ancient so they can order either from the same place. The picture is just an artists impression and does not represent the final product.

We will leave this open online for two weeks and then will close it off and get the order in for weaving.

I will send this link to everyone who has emailed us in reference to the rugs and hopefully they will just be able to go ahead and place their orders.

Regards
Alan

Latest counts on the lap blankets is Clan MacBean Modern - 75 and McElvain Family - 17. House of Tartan just told me that they will probably make a few extra MacBean and go ahead and do 30 McElvain family lap blankets. It is not too late to order, but now is the time. The e-mail for House of Tartan is in the pinned post at the top of the page as well as a description of the blankets. ... See MoreSee Less

Donald McBane - I've posted on Donald and his book before in these pages. A expert swordsman and the notorious escapee over 'The Soldiers Leap' at Killiecrankie. Centre spread in todays 'National' - an online and print pro Scottish independence newspaper - very good on publishing factually correct journalism and editorial. Whether he was ever related to MacBean/ MacBain is unknown, but as his parents were both from Inverness and he spent his boyhood there, it can be conjectured that he was at very least a remote scion of the clan. His autobiographical writing in the second part of the book is racy, fast moving and reveals him as quite a rascal, an attractive member and survivor of the licentious professional soldiery of the time. Modern day competition fencers find the book very collectable.

These are the MacBean Modern and McElvain Ancient colors that the blankets will be based on. House of Tartan has told me that the final price will be 65 pounds per blanket and 15 pounds for the shipping. As I understand it, they will try and work the tax into the price so there are no additional charges when you receive the blanket. Obviously, if you get more than one, they'll probably be sent together and you will save some shipping per blanket. For those of you that don't like to look through previous posts before you ask a question, the e-mail for the person keeping track of our orders at House of Tartan is alan@house-of-tartan.co.uk. The style blanket with measurements and description is on this page - www.houseoftartan.co.uk/scottish/itempage.asp?itemid=1216054894&pc=94&catid=12701 ... See MoreSee Less

Just sent them an e-mail asking since they have several different on their website. Shouldn't take long...........

I'm sure if you go to their website, it says how big, but will verify it. That's a new one, but totally understandable...........

$100.57 US, how big is the blanket

Thank you, because I couldn't find it on their website

I just got word from House of Tartan that the count is at 68 and holding for Clan MacBean Modern blankets and 15 McElvain Ancient. They have told me that because of the number of MacBean blankets, instead of a discount for the Clan MacBean, they would go ahead and do the McElvain blankets at the same price in spite of only 15 orders. They will be sending me CAD pictures to make sure of the colors. ... See MoreSee Less

I'll try and get a rough price for the tax and shipping,,,,,,,,,,,

Some of us are both! Clotilda Vincent ("daughter of Lord and Lady Vincent of Ireland") married Edward Columbus "John" Bean in the late 1700's, and had a whole mess o' kids. Descendants number in the thousands now, I think. oldstonesundeciphered.blogspot.com/2010/06/irish-ancestors-clotilda-daughter-of.html

My great Grandad came here from Scotland, and my wife's family are from Ireland. So I totally get this photo!

Small detail, Sean. You're Scottish and Irish, the best of both worlds. 🍀
