An update from Alan at House of Tartan on the old lap blanket order and our current sash order.

"I think we have sold all of the MacElavin blankets now but do still have a few of the MacBean left.

We have sold around 20 MacBean sashes and have interest for around 12 MacElvain sash.

The fabric is currently in weave for MacElvain in the sash weight and the kilt weight."

While it is always good to recognize our roots in Scotland, we need to also recognize the efforts of Bernie Bean, whose research into the Family of John Bean of Exeter pretty much made the Clan what it is today, and the late Chief Hughston McBain of McBain, the current Chief's father, who resurrected the Clan Chief's position after it was dormant for over 200 years. This picture shows a young Larry Bean at the grave of John Bean in Exeter NH.

Bernie is my grandfather. He spent countless hours working on all of this genealogy. I remember as a small girl helping him fill envelopes and doing little chores always up in his room working on his research. I have his large red books.

I would be curious to know if I am related & how? I'm also American & my 1st MacBean ancestors was William MacBean. He was taken prisoner at the Battle of Dunbar in 1650 then shipped to the Colonies as a slave to a plantation in Virginia. He was born 1635 in Inverness-shire, Scotland. His father Donald MacBean.

Brother William MacBean 1635 that hung out in Northumberland Company Virginia ended up birthing family that settled in Bean Station Tennessee and a branch came down to Alabama name changed to Beene ..... im 9g great grandson. Actually have it posted on Clan Chattan facebook page. Same Donald Bean from Inverness, Scotland

This is what I have from ancestry can anyone add comment or correct??? Might help others also!!! Lewis Bane 1640-1677 Isle of jersey. Scotland Capt. Lewis Bane 1671-1721 Jonathon Bean 1692-1777 Sinkler Bean 1720-1798 NathanielBean sr.1761-1826 Nathaniel Jr 1791-1860 Nathaniel N Bean 1822-1871 Warren Bean 1845-? Charles Bean 1880-1950 Arther Bean 1905- 1992 Merle Bean 1938-2003 Terry Bean 1967- Bryan Bean 1990- (Me)

I was told the original grave of John Bean was move to somewhere else in Exeter and can't remember where. ..Is it next to one of the Churches, maybe?

My GGgrandmother Elizabeth McBean born in Dores, Scotland in 1828, died in Portland, Victoria, Australia on 18/11/1890. Her parents were John McBean and Ann McGillivray. Her siblings included William, Thomas, Ann, Duncan and Margaret McBean. 🙂 She emigrated as a dairy maid.

I also worked the geneology backwards,past the Crinan of Dunkeld, , much thanks to American Heritage's geneology Bank of geneology nuggets and my own Mother's geneology back to the 1600's

I sent this picture to my dad as it looks like him and my grandmother. Apparently he is the spitting image of my grandmother's brother. My grandmother's maiden name is Farrlley but as I understand we are part of the Mcbain clan. My grandmother Helen Marie got married to my Grandpa Lawrence Anderson a Canadian and lived out the rest of her young life here in Canada.

Thanks for the effort to complete this line, I am a descendant of John through my 3rd great grandmother Hannah Bean

I am one of those descendants who ended up being born in Canada, migrating to U.S.A. and acquiring citizenship through Naturalization, then spreading my wings and genes across to Philippines

Great photo of my father-in-law 😉👍

So crazy seeing these posts. He looks like my grandmother and a bit like me

I guess that's what id look like with a beard? XD

The Clan MacBean



INVITATION TO OUR 2018 CLAN GATHERING

As you may know, our Clan tries very hard to hold a Clan Gathering somewhere every four years. Consequently there have been eleven “quadrennial” clan gatherings since the MacBean clan association first stood-up in its “modern” configuration. The first was at Lincoln, Nebraska, in the summer of 1967 and our last gathering was on the marvelous beach at Ventura, California, in October of 2014. Now we are holding our 12thGathering at the wonderful Stone Mountain Inn, in the fabulous park by the same name, located just to the northeast of Atlanta, Georgia. Our Gathering will be coincident with the Stone Mountain Highland Games, one of the largest and most well attended games in the southeastern part of the United States.

In addition to the Gathering being a wonderful way to reconnect with old friends and meet new ones, “cousins all”, it provides an opportunity for you to find out what is going on in your clan association and to learn who is doing what, any why. Most importantly we hold a General Meeting to conduct business and elect members of our Board of Directors in accordance with our by-laws. It is also a great opportunity for to meet our Clan Chief and his family and get to know them personally if you have not done so heretofore.

Our Organizer for the 12th Gathering is Ms. Amber Griffin, who is also the Editor and Publisher of our clan’s periodical, the Register. In addition to the serious business, Amber has arranged for some wonderful social events, from a formal dinner with requisite pomp and circumstance, to a wonderful informal southern barbecue dinner by the hotel’s pool. You are going to love it- I guarantee (as they say in the South)!

And don’t forget on Saturday to participate with the Clan in events at the Stone Mountain Highland Games, and “sit a spell” at the great MacBean Clan Tent being organized by Billy McBee, our Region 12 Commissioner, and take a look at the authentic MacBean “Moon Tartan”, which will be on display.

The Maine 2018 games will have MacBean as the honored Clan. More to come.

October 2018 ???

Anything planned for Scotland itself? You know some of us are still here in the UK. I visited Culloden this year for the very first time and paid respects to Gillies mor MacBean himself. Got lost on the way to clan lands though, shame that, but enjoyed a boat trip on Loch Ness and visited Urquhart Castle and Cawdor Castle too.

Atlanta is close enough for me to come. I’ll have to mention it to my dad. I’m sure he’ll be interested too.

Cawdor Castle August 2017, lovely gardens and tea room.

That’s terrific. Any chance you will come to New England?

That's close enough for me as well.

When is it. This Beane clan would love to be there

What are the dates for this?

The Clan MacBean

November 8, 2017
Dear Clan Member,
Hopefully you are aware of our recent project, coordinated by our clan association Vice President, Scott McElvain, to have heirloom quality lap blankets made for us by the House of Tartan in Perthshire, Scotland. We offered them in either MacBean modern (red) or McElvain ancient (orange) tartan. More than 20 members participated, with some ordering lap blankets in both tartans. Whichever tartan was selected, everyone was simply thrilled with the results. Magnificent!
We have therefore decided to follow-up with a second project for the ladies; evening sashes in lightweight (10 oz) wool twill weave, produced in your choice of either of the same two tartans- MacBean modern or McElvain ancient. The finished price will be 38 British pounds or about 49 US dollars- depending on the exchange rate at the time of purchase- and the House of Tartan may cover the cost of shipping (to you direct by DHS International).
As House of Tartan does not normally stock this cloth, they will have to do a special weaving run. Their minimum is ten yards, which means they will have to have at least 10 orders in either tartan before they can start. Therefore we need you, if interested, to send an email entitled “Clan MacBean Ladies Sashes” to Alan Trivet at House of Tartan (alan@house-of-tartan.co.uk) and tell him how many sashes you are interested in obtaining and in which of the two tartans. Please also CC Scott on the email (smacafbu@yahoo.com) so he can keep track.
The way it works- when the minimum required for the special weave run is met, the House of Tartan will send you via email a special order form with a secure “live link” in it. You merely return the form, which will include info for payment by credit card. When the sashes are made and shipped, you will receive an email from House of Tartan… and your order will arrive at your door by DHS shortly thereafter; “No fuss, no muss, no bother” as the addman said.
So, that’s all there is to it. Please join me in getting our ladies “properly kitted”, as it were. They will love you for it!

Basically, House of Tartan will be making or getting from other sources, Clan MacBean in both a lightweight and heavyweight tartan. The more we order, the better the chance of them keeping some MacBean Modern as a stock tartan. You can generally order scarves and ties from US retailers like Alberene Royal Mail, Scottish Lion, and Celtic Croft, and save on shipping. If you want something a little unusual, you'll probably have to go to Scotland. When we had our reunion in Scotland, I walked up and down the Royal Mile hitting all the Scottish goods stores I could find and could only come up with a tie and a shot glass. The more we order as a clan, the more we'll have available in the future.

alan@house-of-tartan.co.uk is taking orders.

And for kilts, do you recommend them as well? I want to be well fit for the Stone Mountain gathering.

I am not on a position to recommend them making the kilt. You might ask them who they have make kilts.

A note of apology to those Clan MacBean folk who came by the tent at the Gulfport, MS games last weekend. There aren't always a lot of MacBeans that come by Clan tent during festivals, and these days we don't have a lot of representation at Festivals. I've gotten feedback from an individual that came by that I was too busy "entertaining" everyone that walked by when I should have been more hospitable to the MacBeans that did show up. They were absolutely right, and I apologize to anyone I might have slighted or been abrupt with. I was fortunate to have Clan members come by and volunteer to be in the Parade of Clans while I busied myself talking about tartans with people who didn't even have one. While I got into the Clan business with a former Clan President and a strong Colorado area contingent, I haven't been doing tents by myself for long, and I'll take all the suggestions that I can get. WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE IN A CLAN TENT? I've got the tartan part covered and need to work on my hospitality for sure, but it will get better! ... See MoreSee Less

Comment on Facebook

Technically anyone can join the clan, but if you are a MacBean, you can use our clan genealogists for research. They do have some DNA info they are coordinating.

Whats best way to see a schedule of when and where you are going to be next?

Just came back from the highlands. This little gem is right near lockness it’s a nice little park

Well people need to volunteer in the tent with you instead of complaining.

I joined the Clan recently. I am of the William Bean & Naomi (Bates) Bean lineage that came to South Carolina in the late 1700's. I currently live in Northern California, and if I can ever be of any help with a festival or anything at all, please let me know. Up here we have The North Coast Scottish society, and they are familiar with our Clan. So feel free to contact me if you ever have a need in my area. I'm sure you did the very best you could working on your own. Much gratitude for your time and hard work! <3

Thank you for your volunteer work. I'm sorry someone complained - perhaps next time they will offer to assist instead.

I thought you did a great job. I waited patiently in line for my turn to speak with you. You were kind and informative. I've become a member because of our conversation. I can see where you'd need some volunteers. I am thankful that you came to our gulf coast festival.

Scott, sometimes we forget the countless hours and money spent by our Regional Commissioners, volunteers all--paying the Games fees out of their own pockets, as well as all of their own transportation, hotel and restaurant costs, and then spending the entire weekend on duty in their tents helping us look up our ancestors and answering any questions we may have. You deserve our gratitude and support. Thank you all!

Real Scottish Whisky, Single Malts only, Stovies, tatties and neeps with haggis (meat or veggie), Edinburgh Rock, Shortbread that is actually made in Scotland not some souvenir rubbish in a tartan tin! Real Scottish Porridge with Scottish honey or salt for the connoisseur!

We have a whole family park. It’s beautiful

More Beans to help you... represent at the festivities... You pointing at more Beans partaking in the events...

Are you on about the macbean's that are actually blood related? On the ones who pay to be in the clan?

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 😀

Can you give me a price or website please?

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

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.

House of Tartan will be shipping out the last of the ordered tartan lap blankets tomorrow. They do have a few extras, but if you want one for Christmas, you'd better get it now. Once they run out, it will take another mass order to get them done next year. ... See MoreSee Less

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.

You may not know but there is a Clan MacBain memorial park in Scotland on the slopes of Loch Ness. Up to this point the Chief has maintained these grounds but we want to enable all who wish to support this cause.
