Last time I checked, we are up to 7 reservations for McElvain Ancient lap blankets from House of Tartan. Not sure how many MacBeans Moderns. Can't believe with the following that this page has that we can't get 30 people to order a Clan MacBean lap blanket. That's less than 2% of the people that follow this page! ... See MoreSee Less

Birth: 1634
Inverness
West Dunbartonshire, Scotland
Death: Jan. 24, 1718
Exeter
Rockingham County
New Hampshire, USA

John Bean, the Immigrant, was of Scottish descent and probably born in Scotland. He was a Presbyterian and undoubtedly was one of those, or the son of one of those who left Scotland in order to practice his religious belief without persecution.

He settled in Exeter, New Hampshire as early as 1600, for on January twenty-first of 1661 a grant of land was made to him by the town. He received other grants October 10, 1664, April 1, 1671 and February 21, 1698. He also received land from other sources.

In 1671, he was one of a committee chosen to run the lines between Exeter and the adjoining towns. On November 30, 1677 he took the oath of allegiance to become a freeman; he was assessed in the "Province Rate" for Exeter made April 20, 1680, eight shillings and a penny; and was pound keeper the same year. John signed the New Hampshire Petition of 1689/90.

John Bean was married before he came to this country, but the name of his wife and the date of the marriage are not yet known. Tradition states, (and other facts support it) that she died on the voyage, and after his arrival here, he married a Scotch-Irish girl who came over on the same vessel. This marriage took place c 1660. Her name is Margaret___.

John died in 1718, between January 24 and February 8, as shown by deeds. He and his wife were undoubtedly buried in the yard of the old church in Exeter, but all traces of their graves disappeared these many years past and filling of the yard to raise its surface has nearly obliterated all of the marks of this burial place. >New England Family History, v3, pp485-486.

John was born 1634 in Strathdearn, Inverness-shire, Scotland. He was a prisoner brought to New England in 1651. He lived in Exeter, NH where he died between January 24 and February 8, 1718. His wife Hannah (Lissen) died on the passage from Scotland and he married Margaret___, the Irish maid who accompanied them. His first three children were by Hannah. John signed a petition as an Exeter resident, dated August 10, 1692 asking equal privileges with Massachusetts "Whereas your Majesties have been graciously pleased to settle the government of the Province of Massachusetts wherein XXX we always hoped to have been included, but not finding it otherwise XXX we are but four poor towns daily exposed from French and Indian enemies." He was a pound keeper in Exeter where he was granted land in 1660. John's stone in Exeter in the front of the Congregational Church. >Source unknown.

Acarebridge AcarebridgeI'm still trying to get documentation that my great-great grandfather George Washington Bean was definitely son of Sinkler Bean of Batavia, NY (& then Spring Arbor, MI), and that Sinkler was descended from Nathaniel Bean (maybe his grandf.--but I need documentation of this Revolutionary-War Nathaniel Bean down through Sinkler Bean & son George Washington Bean). This was the second ancestor with the name Sinkler Bean. The earlier one lived in NH; they were intermarried with the Sinclair family from Inverness/NH, and I think Sinkler was a distorted spelling of Sinclair, during a census (Sinclair becoming also a first name in the Bean-Sinclair family and sounding like "sinkler" when spoken in a Scottish brogue. The Revol.- War Nathaniel Bean fought in MA (released by Gen. George Washington) and was descended from John Bean of Exeter. George W. Bean was born in Batavia (Genese Co. NY) abt. 1822, but NY had no birth certificates then. I need proof of this lineage that is acceptable to DAR. I did see that in 1840s, George Bean owned land in Spring Arbor, MI, next to Sinkler Bean, who was well known there. I think George's first wife (Laura?) died; and then George moved to Iowa, where he married my great, greatgrandmother Harriet "Hattie" Newell Thomas.

Acarebridge Acarebridgecontin. By the way, this was the second Sinkler Bean in the line. The first lived earlier in NH. It appears that Sinkler was a misspelling of the given name Sinclair, derived from the Sinclair family of Inverness & NH after they intermarried with the Beans in NH. Probably happened in census-taking when "Sinclair" spoke with a Scottish brogue sounded like :Sinkler." Too bad.

Years ago, the Clan got together an order for lap blankets in the Clan MacBean Modern tartan. They ended up being around $125 as I recall. A blanket will not be as tight a design as material for kilts and scarves. Anyway, I have contacted House of Tartan and they quoted me a price of 65 pounds for an order of at least 30. You can contact them on their Facebook page and get your name on the list. I would think that with a significant response, the price could be reduced even further. They can also do the McElvain Ancient tartan. Again, reserve one through their Facebook page. This is not a Clan MacBean order, it is just getting enough individuals together to have a minimum order achieved.

I am verifying the Facebook page since there seems to be a House of Tartans, but no House of Tartan. Will get back with you all.

It comes up under House of Tartan Retail. Thanks Shannon!

Probably the best thing to do is go to their website on the internet - House of Tartan....

Clan MacBeanThe cost would be as I said in the post 65 pounds but the more we get, the cheaper it would be. That's a little over twice what a common stock tartan would be. They would've sent individually to the customer and I wouldn't think it would be too bad. Shipping is high from the U.K.

Karenmarie ImmenhausenPer Wikipedia Thomaston Castle is located west of Maybole, South Ayrshire, Scotland. It looks much as it did hundreds of years ago. Little has changed, except for the addition of a house located on the property. The castle is run down and has debris falling in on it. Thomaston Castle was built for a nephew of Robert The Bruce, and first owned by Alan McIlvaine (b. 1500 in Ayrshire) whose family supplied wine to the Earls Kennedy, owners of nearby Culzean Castle. Upon his death, Thomaston passed to Patrick McIlvaine on his marriage to Isobel Kennedy, niece of the Earl of Cassilis.

Thought I would put this up again for our newer members. Visited our Vet once with our Cat (Shadow).During his examination we told him that she did not like to have her belly touched. So he got an aide to help him. When the aide arrived she had a pair of heavily padded gloves that were long enough to reach her armpits. I immediately thought of our clan motto "Touch not the cat bot a glove" This reminded me of a post I have put a few times over the past few years. I will go over this now for many of our new members. At the Quechee games a few years ago Rob MacIntosh and I were discussing the clan motto and he mentioned that on a recent trip to Scotland he heard that they also put some emphasis on the cat. After getting home I looked this up. I know when we say the motto we tend to put ourselves in the position of having gloves on when we handle them, and that is understanable Most cats can retract and extend their claws. When a cat retracts them the claws are hidden between the pads of their paws. When they are in this position they are considered to be "GLOVED." When the claws are extended and exposed beyond the paws they are considered to be "UNGLOVED" or "BOT" a glove. The attached Image shows a Scottish Wildcat Kitten with one paw gloved and one paw Bot (ungloved).So however we think when we say this motto we will be right. And as Rob always says "Just don't mess with the Cat. Orson.
