Wallace Tartan
Origin: Scotland
Main Colours: RED, BLACK, YELLOW
About:

The name Wallace is derived from the Old French word ‘waleis’, a ‘Welshman, Celt’. Wallace is the Scottish form of the name, found in England as Wallis, Wallice etc.; here it originally meant ‘a Briton of the Kingdom of Strathclyde’. As such it was originally stated that the family were of Norman origin. Early records of the name show it to have been common in Renfrewshire and Ayrshire – part of the old Kingdom of Strathclyde. First record of the name in Scotland was c.1160; Richard Wal (ensis) witnessed a charter by Alan, son of Walter the High Steward. Richard’s lands in Ayrshire were named after him and the name survived as the town and parish of Riccarton.
