COAT OF ARMS
|Does the Coulthart family from Scotland have a tartan?
According to Scots Kith and Kin - A Guide to the Clans & Surnames of Scotland, the following families were dominant in the areas where our Coulthart ancestors once lived. To select a tartan, you must first determine the county or "shire" from which your Coulthart ancestors came. Then click on the underlined surname to see the tartan. Pick the tartan you like best and adopt it as your own. Of course this is the North American way of selecting a tartan. I'm not sure whether the Scots would approve! My personal favorite is Turnbull.
Dumfriesshire: Douglas, Maxwell, Bruce, Johnston or MacRae (if you are related to John Coulthart of Cummertrees)
Wigtownshire: Agnew, MacDougall or Kennedy
Aryshire: Bruce or Wallace
Lanarkshire: Crawford, Stewart or Douglas
Selkirkshire: Armstrong, Bruce, Scott or Elliot
Roxburghshire: Cranston, Turnbull or Oliver
Berwickshire: Kerr, Young, Erskine or Lauder
