The rather unusual Muir tartan can be traced back to 1930 and can be worn by many variations of the name including More, Moir and Moore. Sir Adam Mure married Joanna Danzielstour and gave birth to Elizabeth future Queen to Robert II, grandson of Robert the Bruce. Robert being the first of the Stewart dynasty which reigned over Scotland & England. A later royal connection occurred when their daughter Joanna, married Sir John Lyon, Thane of Glamis, from whom descended the Earls of Strathmore & Kinghorne, forbearers of the late Queen Mother and her daughter Queen Elizabeth II In 1700 the Chief of the Muir clan died without a male heir. This resulted in a dispersal of the clan with two prominent sections linked to Clan Grant from 1770 and the other descending from a marriage of a More Heiress to a Leslie Chief in 1200. Many others were absorbed into major clans such as Gordon, Campbell, Donald and Stewarts. In 1999 a Clan Muir Society was formed in Ayrshire by Kurt Muir and Andrew Moore was elected Chief of the House of Muir. The Society maintains an active website.
