Gordons, Grahams, Hannay, Hawick, Highfield and Highland tartans in this evening's dress tartan designs. Clan Graham (Greumaich nan Ceart is a Scottish clan who had territories in both the Scottish Highlands and Lowlands. There is a tradition that the first Graham was one Greme who broke the Roman Antonine Wall driving the Roman legions out of Scotland. However the likely origin is that the chiefs of Clan Graham were of Anglo-Norman origin. The Manor of Gregham is recorded in William the Conqueror's Domesday Book. When David I claimed the throne of Scotland, Graham was one of the knights who accompanied him. Sir William de Graham was present at the erection of Holyrood Abbey, witnessing its foundation charter.

The first lands that the chiefs of Clan Graham appear to have held were around Dalkeith in Midlothian. Sir Nicholas de Graham attended the Parliament of 1290 where the Treaty of Birgham was signed. The Clan Graham fought at the Battle of Dunbar in 1296 where Sir Patrick de Graham of Kincardine was the only man of all the Scots not to retreat and instead fought to the death.[7]

Sir John de Graham, was a friend and follower of William Wallace. Sir John de Graham is regarded as hero for rescuing Wallace at Queensbury. Sir John de Graham was regarded as Wallace's right-hand man and Wallace was at his side when Graham was killed in 1298 at the Battle of Falkirk. John de Graham's name is still perpetuated in the district of Grahamston. The grave of Sir John de Graham in Falkirk churchyard is still to be seen, with table stones of three successive periods above it. One great two-handed sword of Sir John the Graham is preserved at Buchanan Castle by the Duke of Montrose. Another was long in possession of the Grahams of Orchil and is now treasured by the Freemason Lodge at Auchterarder.

The Clan Graham fought at the Battle of Sauchieburn led by the third Lord Graham. The battle was fought on 11 June 1488, at the side of Sauchie Burn, a brook about two miles south of Stirling, Scotland. In 1504 Lord Graham, on account of his gallantry was made Earl of Montrose. He would go on to lead part of the Scottish Vanguard against the English at the Battle of Flodden in 1513, part of the Anglo-Scottish Wars where he was slain. The Clan Graham took no side in the Jacobite Uprisings and remained neutral throughout. Highlanders can thank James Graham, 3rd Duke of Montrose for the repeal in 1782 of the Dress Act 1746 prohibiting the wearing of highland dress. He persuaded Parliament to remove the law forbidding Scots to wear their tartan.

The Highlands (Scots: the Hielands; Scottish Gaelic: a’ Ghàidhealtachd 'the place of the Gaels') is a historic region of Scotland. Culturally, the Highlands and the Lowlands diverged from the later Middle Ages into the modern period, when Lowland Scots replaced Scottish Gaelic throughout most of the Lowlands. The term is also used for the area north and west of the Highland Boundary Fault, although the exact boundaries are not clearly defined, particularly to the east. The Great Glen divides the Grampian Mountains to the southeast from the Northwest Highlands. The Scottish Gaelic name of A' Ghàidhealtachd traditionally, from a Gaelic-speaking point of view, includes both the Western Isles and the Highlands.

Historically, the major social unit of the Highlands was the clan. Scottish kings, particularly James VI, saw clans as a challenge to their authority; the Highlands was seen by many as a lawless region. The Scots of the Lowlands viewed the Highlanders as backwards and more "Irish". The Highlands were seen as the overspill of Gaelic Ireland. They made this distinction by separating Germanic "Scots" English and the Gaelic by renaming it "Erse" a play on Eire.

Following the Jacobite rising of 1745 the British government enacted a series of laws to try to suppress the clan system, including bans on the bearing of arms and the wearing of tartan, and limitations on the activities of the Scottish Episcopal Church. Most of this legislation was repealed by the end of the 18th century as the Jacobite threat subsided. There was soon a rehabilitation of Highland culture. Tartan was adopted for Highland regiments in the British Army, which poor Highlanders joined in large numbers in the era of the Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars (1790–1815). Tartan had largely been abandoned by the ordinary people of the region, but in the 1820s, tartan and the kilt were adopted by members of the social elite, not just in Scotland, but across Europe.

The international craze for tartan, and for idealising a romanticised Highlands, was set off by the Ossian cycle, and further popularised by the works of Walter Scott. His "staging" of the visit of King George IV to Scotland in 1822 and the king's wearing of tartan resulted in a massive upsurge in demand for kilts and tartans that could not be met by the Scottish woollen industry. Individual clan tartans were largely designated in this period and they became a major symbol of Scottish identity. This "Highlandism", by which all of Scotland was identified with the culture of the Highlands, was cemented by Queen Victoria's interest in the country, her adoption of Balmoral as a major royal retreat, and her interest in "tartenry".

Thanks Toddy for that help. Yes, Dustin, I am now a lady of leisure, retired from working and able to do more of the things I love. I will message you on one of my puzzles. They are under the Art category. (*~*)

@dustin Hi Dustin click on @Woodowly and you will see all of Jayne's puzzles. There are new ones!

Hello Jayne, do I understand, your no longer at school? that must be great for you, all the time you now have, to do things you always wanted to do.
I wish for you, it is so. I have not found a new puzzle, from you is that correct?
I am glad with you again on Jigidi. Hugs and all the best.


Hello dear Dustin. I'm so happy to read your message. I am sorry for the long absence but I explained on another puzzle. We are all well. I'm loving being full time at home and free of the demands and stresses of the college. It has definitely improved my health as well as my state of mind!Your island must be beautiful now in the spring with all the flowers and longer, brighter days. You have had a pretty horrible winter by the looks of things. Hugs my dear friend. Jayne 🥰

hallo Mrs woodowly, dear jayne, what a relief to see you on this page. how are you? I hope you and your family are oke. it was a long time, without you! I have só missed you.
Hugs and "see" you again soon.


I'm very happy to be back Jess! Long may it continue. Jayne


Wonderful to see you here again, Jayne! You've been much missed! 💖


Thanks so much Kim. I hope to be at least reasonably regular if not every day. (*~*)


I am so happy that you are okay. It's just the internet and computer thing that has you unable to post a puzzle. I look forward to seeing your puzzles, but I do understand that your ability to do so is limited due to the issues you listed. Hopefully, all your issues will be fixed and you will be back, if not - know that I do miss you. Your friend from CT.,


Hallo all my dear friends. I hope I am back for good but after the past six or so months I cannot promise anuthing. Between my personal laptop, my work laptop, Chris's laptop, his phone, my phone, our modem(s), internet access, and loadshedding, interspersed with thunderstorms destroying our power connections for 24 - 48 hours at a time, it's been a very challenging time. I will write it all up and post a puzzle for you. Much love to all. Jayne


@Woodowly, I have missed you. I started worrying a week or so ago. I have not been as faithful of a Jig fan as I was prior to Covid. You would think that by staying home and being secluded from others, I would have been putting a lot of puzzles together. Nope.... My brain did not want to cooperate and let me do the Jig thing. LOL!!! I searched all over Jig and Jig on FaceBook trying to see if you were okay. As you can see there have been a few of us with the same concern. I know there are more of your followers/fans that have missed you too. Please take care of your health that's very important.

Your Jig friend,



@Woodowly - you are missed my dear friend ♥♥ sending lots of love ☺

Jayne Coleman
Hi Mona, I'm sorry about that. I have had and continue to have endless problems with both my work and personal laptops. They have been in and out of workshops, things added and subtracted. I have grown quite desperate as it now appears that 15 years of work has vanished. Please send everyone my dear love to them all. I miss all my Jigidi friends very much. I have also been struggling with health issues so have had very little energy for even basic household tasks. I'm sorry to moan so much. As I say please send them all my greetings.❤️🤗❤️

Hallo everybody!
I too am glad to hear all these things, but it will make me realy reassured to hear from Jayne herself that she is oke and happy, and that she will not make puzzles anymore.
i hope you understand. I don't have facebook, otherwise I should ask her myself.
all the best for everyone! and I really appreciate all the help you gave. I will visit this "puzzle" comming days to see if there are more messages.

Oh good! Glad she’s ok! I don’t do Facebook so couldn’t check there. Whew, a relief.

Thank you to all who have tried to find out about Janye and to @gerrib for finding out that she is well. I normally do her smaller puzzles but have been keeping track of the conversations to find out about her. I miss the commentary and the puzzles. Jane

I just sent Jayne a message on facebook. Thanks gerrib.....I asked her to visit here and let the people who came to care about her know that she is ok.


Thank you, gerrib. Such a relief to know Jayne is well. I'll be content now to re-work her older puzzles until (if ever) she resumes posting new ones.

Collieax - Jayne posted on Facebook as recently as yesterday. Have you tried messaging her there?

Thank you Collieax for keep trying! we wait and Hope!

I tried again. This time I found an online contact. Here’s hoping!

You are Great! Thank you I will see every day.

Still haven’t heard anything. My email didn’t bounce back at me so I assume it went to someone. Next week I’ll send another and ask for a reply to try and see if at least someone will acknowledge they got it.

Hai everybody
still waiting .......

Same here!


I'm checking in daily. Hoping for good news soon.

Thank you Mona! I will

dustin, it's difficult to not worry, I know, but have faith that whatever is the situation with Jayne will be known to us. Take care and find comfort in prayer. Mona

Thank all of you for helping us, to find a way to hear something from Jayne.
i am só worried. I know nothing from linkdin, so I will see everyday if there is a message here.

That's good, Collieax....pray for the best!

I sent an email to the university.
Here’s hoping we hear something.

I found Jayne's Linkedin connection. She has not posted or visited that site in at least 90 days.

Here’s a LinkedIn site, I don’t belong to that, but maybe a way to contact?

I’ll try to contact the university.

Please do!! I asked my granddaughter to look on facebook, but she could not find
Jayne Coleman........its not like Jayne, to stop like this.


That's a great idea, Collieax!! Please do!


I haven't been on here as often as in the past so I didn't immediately notice that you haven't posted in awhile! I do so hope that you are alright!! We miss you!!!
