Tartan (fragment) and paper (piece), associated with Prince Charles Edward Stewart

Fragment of woollen tartan attached to a piece of paper, possibly the wrapping for the fragment.

On the paper is written 'Piece of tartan plaid, worn by Prince Charles Edward given to me by Robert Drummond at 1 Palace Gate. Looks more like '

Robert Drummond was a banker living at 1 Palace Gate, Kensington, London (according to the 1881 census). He was married to Augusta Charlotte and had two sons, Charles (who also became a banker) and Wingfield.

The tartan may be a portion of the so called Moyhall plaid left at Holyrood by Prince Charles Edward in 1746.

It is not known whether this tartan fragment was one of the many Jacobite relics amassed by Sir John Hynde Cotton (1686 – 1752), an English Jacobite MP, and his descendants.
