Background: The Clan Donald, often described as the most powerful of the clans, hold as their eponymous ancestor Donald of Islay, who succeeeded his father Reginald or Ranald, son of Somerled, Lord of the Isle in 1207. Somerled's campaigns spanned over forty years, during which time he gained a kingdom and the hand of Ragnhild, daughter of King Olvav the Red, Norse King of Man and the Isles. The story of this match is part of the origin legends of Clan Macintyre. The new empire stretched from Bute to Ardnamurchan, including Lorne, Argyll and Kintyre on the mainland.

What I would like to know is why that I found the name Cook in the McDonald clan
and also in the clan Stewart? I know as well that there is some Cook in British heraldry as well.

So how do we know to which we belong really?

There are many names which can be septs of more than one clan. And some names may be Scottish or English or other nationalities. In cases where there is not a definite origin for the name, you must know where your ancestors came from to know which clan (or in some cases, which nationality) you belong to.

Thanks for the info sir.

I'll just have to work harder in my research for the Cook name.
But from what little I know is that my husband's great great grand dad was from Scotland but from where I don't know.

So does this mean that we could wear both clan colors?

Hmmm- seeing Henderson in that list makes me raise my eyebrows. I know that the Hendersons and the MacDonalds were closely associated in Glencoe due to the MacEanruig clan's intermarriage with the MacDonalds, but, all the history I've read so far puts the Hendersons as either a sept of Gunn, or the descendants of the house of Henry. MacEanruig = Son of Henry.

It would be "proper" to only wear the tartan that is associated with your family. But in your case, since you don't know which (but are fairly sure of the Scottish derivation), I'd say pick one and stick with it. While some folks insist on being extremely proper and exact, the fact that your celebrating your heritage is more important to me. There will always be those who want documentation, but most folks aren't that rigid.

Thanks again M.Scotsman for the precious info.

I've been talking with one man at the Montreal Highland Games last year and he was able to found on the internet the Cook tartan.

Which I'm a bit suspicious about the authenticity of it since Cook was not a "clan"
it is a sept of 2 clans. But all the same the colors are beautiful and similar to the ones of Nova Scotia.

But I've never been able to found anything on the internet and he didn't want to tell me where he found it so... if anybody can tell me where to look or know if there is such a thing as sept colors i'd appreciate it verra much.

A good place to start would be House of Tartan. They have a page on Electric Scotland at http://www.electricscotland.com/tartans/index.htm or their own homepage at http://www.houseoftartan.co.uk/ . Electric Scotland ( http://www.electricscotland.com/ )itself is a good general resource. While everything there is not authoritative, it is still a good place to start research and in many cases can point you in the right direction. I hope that you and your family will enjoy going to various festivals and gatherings. Learning one's personal history is fascinating and the social aspects of participating in many of the activities is very rewarding.

My great grandmother's maidian name of Kelly is in there but as they were from England there may have been no official membership.
