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?

My email said it was an artist rendition and not exact.

I just received the following from House of Tartan on the Clan MacBean Modern and McElvain Ancient lap blankets.

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,,,,,,,,,,,

What can we expect to pay???

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

This is our Baine family Facebook page, our ancestor came from Hamiltonsbawn, Co. Armagh, N. Ireland to Maryland and settled in Texas with Stephen Austin. We don't know where the family was before 1800, but we heard they came over to Ireland in the 1600s.

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. 🍀

I'm all that so, BEAST

I'm both, so I'm covered.

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

Comment on Facebook

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?

India McBean did you get your order in?

I sure wish I could get one

We are over halfway with lap blanket orders for both MacBean Modern and McElvain Ancient. Our Clan President (who is not on Facebook) has authorized an e-mail out to all Clan Association members to notify them of the offer and hopefully put us over the top. If you are not members of the Clan Association, please consider it. We have an incredible Genealogy Department that is digitizing all the Clan books on the John Bean of Exeter line and starting to trace other lines that remained in Scotland and those that came over later.

Okay, I have been notified by House of Tartan that we are up to 10 MacBean Modern and 7 McElvain Ancient lap blanket orders. Again, if we can get the mimimum order of 30, they will cost 65 pounds plus shipping and tax. All you have to do is e-mail them at alan@house-of-tartan.co.uk and put in a reservation. The minute we get 30, they'll start making the material. ... See MoreSee Less

Hello...I'm thinking of getting a kilt in
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!

Okay folk. We are up to about 6 or 7 orders for each of the Clan MacBean Modern and McElvain Ancient lap blankets from House of Tartan. These lap blankets will be an incredible thing to pass down in the family - especially since they will also be relatively rare. Let's get on the bandwagon and get up to 30 for each. There are 1800-1900 of you out there reading this! ... See MoreSee Less
