Bob Chisholm my Favourite Brother in Law, found out that CLAN Chisholm has not one Tartan but 4 hence the 4T. I as a McRobb had to admit that no we do not have a family Tartan but as a sept of the McFarlane’s we may wera there Tartan. So here is brief history of the Chisholm Clan:
The Chisholm Hunting Ancient tartan is predominantly orange, green and white. The name Chisholm is from a Norman French word “chese” meaning “to choose” and the Saxon word “holm” meaning “meadow. They became established first in the county of Roxburgh in the Border area of Scotland and the earliest record of the name is John de Chesehelme who is mentioned in a letter from Pope Alexander IV in 1254. John de Chesolm from Berwick and Richard de Chesolm from Roxburgh both signed the Ragman Rolls of King Edward I in 1296 and were two of 2,000 landowners and clergy to do so. The seal used by Richard shows the head of a boar which is part of the family coat of arms to this day.
The Chisholm Red Modern tartan is predominantly red, black and white. According to legend, two Chesolm brothers saved the life of one of the Scottish kings in the 14th century and were granted land in Inverness-shire. Certainly, Sir Robert Chisholm was appointed constable of Urquhart Castle in 1359 but that was in succession to his maternal grandfather. His younger son remained as chief of the Chisholms in the Borders. A son of the Borders line established the Chisholms of Cromlix in Perthshire. Alexander, Sir Robert Chisholm’s eldest son, married Mary of Erchless and Comar. Erchless Castle became the seat of the Chisholm’s and remained so for 500 years until the early 19th century.
Now you have it Lady Linda has married many years ago to an Honourable Gentleman of Means with 4 Tartans.
