There are a lot of them out there, but the Clan only has one reference copy or so. There's Larry Bean in Cheyenne that has one.

Joseph S. Bean was my grandfather. Perhaps my dad or Uncle have a copy? John Bean and James Bean

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.

Should be St. Mirren.

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! :))

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.

This event is still new, in its third year. If there's any McB's out this way, please come out and support it! 🙂 www.capefearhighlandgames.com/

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.

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.

Click on photos at the top of the Clan MacBean page and there's a shot of a blanket from a previous order. It should be close to that.

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 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.

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

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
