A History of Craig Tartan

This name has a local origin, being taken from any crag, or (in Scots) craig, near which a man might have his dwelling. In the 15th century, no less than three families claimed to be ‘of that Ilk’, that is, the chiefly House. From William the Lion’s reign onwards, the name occurs in old records, and, in the 15th and 16th centuries, it is particularly common in the Edinburgh district. There were Craigs too in Aberdeenshire as well as in Berwick and St. Andrews. John Craig was a colleague of John Knox
