  • Is There A Atkinson Clan?

    Hi I am trying to find out if there are any Atkinson clans. I have heard that there is a Atkinson tartan but not been able to find it.

    Regards James in sunny England.

      Not really

      Hello James, From what I've been able to figure out about the clan system is that Atkinson is a family that belongs to the Gordon Clan. There is a lot of confusion about clans on the internet because companies in the business of selling you products make it look like everyone can have their own clan & tartan & crest etc. but it's just not true. My wife's mother was an Atkinson and so I've researched quite a bit. Being Canadian it's difficult to understand the system as its set up but I think you'll find that I'm correct. If you find I'm not please let me know the secret.
