The Broons

Product image Product image

The Broons' forebears Le Bruns arrived in Britain with the Norman Conquest in 1066. They overthrew their leige lord and moved to Scotland in an act known as Le Broon Coup and settled in the land of the MacGregors who called them 'Broons'. Led by the famous Red MacGregor they became expert dealers in pre-owned cattle. A by-product of the family cow business was fertiliser so a cousin, Capability Broon, became quite a famous gardener. His brother, Incapability Broon was more famous in beer gardens. This new tartan takes the brown from their famous name, the green from the wild clan country, the red and gold from the shield of the Duchy of Normandy, their distant Gallic cousins. The black line signifies their illustrated exploits that have appeared in The Sunday Post for 75 years.
Keeping the blood link with their distant Gallic cousins are the red and gold from the Duchy of Normandy heraldic shield.
Design by Brian Wilton, 2010.
