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. ...

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...........

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

$100.57 US, how big is the blanket

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,,,,,,,,,,,

What can we expect to pay???

Oh, ok... I was hoping for further discount on the McBean ones.

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!

We have doubled the minimum order of 30 thanks to a last minute rush and are now at 60 Clan MacBean Modern lap blankets. We are still halfway with the McElvain Ancient. Thank you to all that have helped us to get there! I have an e-mail in to House of Tartan to see if we have been able to qualify for any break in the price per blanket. I should be getting more information soon. ... See MoreSee Less

Obviously, the tax will vary with the final price of the blanket.

If you have any questions about individual orders especially shipping, I would contact House of Tartan.

The original deal was a minimum of 30 at a price of 65 pounds each plus tax and shipping.

and, 65 pounds is around $80 at the moment........

Is the alan@house-of-tartan.co.uk the right email?

What is the price per blanket?

Ship to Aus?

MacElvain ancient or modern tartan. Where is a good place to purchase it from? House of tartan?
... See MoreSee Less

Comment on Facebook

I got my first kilt, a MacBean Modern back in the late 80s/early 90s from a place on Princes Street in Edingurgh where a friend bought his. When D.C. Dalgleish was the only place to get McElvain, I got my material from him (now Scotweb) and he had a kilt maker he knew make mine. I have a McElvain Modern in a light weight for dancing that I've barely worn and a heavy weight Ancient. The Modern is just so dark, the blue and green aren't really apparent. I love the ancient. If you get a light blue tweed jacket, It blends with the axure in the MacBean Modern and the Blue in the McElvain Ancient. Ancient Red is a nice soft orange and they have ties in the Ancient shades now to match. One of these days, I'm going to have a jacket, vest, etc, made in the orange. You might check to see if Dalgleish (I believe they still make the tartan for Scotweb) is still on the web and could tell you who they suggest.

Thank you for the info. I just ordered a McElvain Ancient heavy from scotweb. If you use the scotweb link off the x marks the Scot website you get 10% off too

Every little bit helps!

Thomas P Beane

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.

If you are a member of the Clan Association, you can use our Clan genealogists to clear any blocks you might have. clanmacbean.org/genealogy/ We have extensive knowledge of John Bean of Exeter and his descendents.

I'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.

I'm still trying to get documentation that my great;greatgrandfather George Washington Bean was definitely a son of Sinkler Bean of Batavia, NY, and then Spring Arbor, MI--and that Sinkler was descended from the Nathaniel Bean who fought in the Revoluntionary War in MA & was released by Gen. George Washington (this Nathaniel may have been George's grandfather).

contin. 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.

You may want to contact Justine through the clan website........

I do, but others somewhere out there may have documentation or know how to get it. Thanks, Ruth

Clan MacBean

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....

The 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.

Contact House of Tartan through the e-mail I put on one of the posts. They can probably give you an idea of taxes (VAT) and shipping.

Contact House of Tartan through the e-mail I have posted on this page.

I bought the one. Picked up a nice leather carrying strap on one of my trips over.......

Ricky Lee wouldn't this be a great Christmas idea for grandma?

My late Uncle, Everett P. Bean bought a bunch. Gave us two which we use nightly.

I picked up one of the Thomaston reconstruction pictures years ago from the artist. I'm sure he has more.

Actually, I think that is a photo I took of Thomaston years ago......

There is a huge hole in the wall around the right side............

This Mcilwain wants it.

Per 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.

Thanks for posting- did you get pictures of the Thomaston Castle, the only McElvain Castle you mention?This McElvaine wants it too-- maybe a time share and we can all have it!

I want it

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.

Great speech. I was there in 2005. So thankful we have this little piece of Scotland and that it's being looked after. I shall have to make another trip from Australia to see the restoration.

This is my daughter, Nancy Martin and myself at the memorial in August 2015. It was such an honor to see our family memorial!

Late 1960's visited this Family monument, the Cat was in the center over the MacBean plaque. (Looking for the pic.) Beautiful and superb experience. Brought tears to my eyes.... then and this video. Thank you for sharing.

Thanks E lizabeth. I never knew anything about this rededication. It must have been around time of our mini clan gathering. Must visit again. XX
