The History Of Black Watch Tartan:
In 1725, 10 years after the Jacobite Rising of 1715, General George Wade, Commander-in-Chief in North Britain, advised King George I to form a "Watch" consisting of six independent companies. The advice was given on the basis that the "Watch" would patrol the Highlands of Scotland and the companies' duties were to be "employed in disarming the Highlanders, preventing depredations, bringing criminals to justice, and preventing rebels and advanced persons from inhabiting that region." part of the kingdom.” Basically keeping the peace in the Highlands. This new "watch" was known in Gaelic as Am Freiceadan Dubh, "dark" or "black watch". To form the "Watch", three companies were formed by members of the Clan Campbell (Captain Campbell of Lochnell, Campbell of Carrick and Campbell of Skipness), one of the Clan Fraser of Lovat (Captain by Lord Lovat), one of the Clan Grant (Captain is Colonel William Grant of Ballindalloch) and one of Clan Munro (Captain Munro of Culcairn).
