This name is derived from Renwick in Cumberland, old Ravenswic, on east side of the River Eden. James Renwick, the Covenanter, was the last man executed (1688) for religious principles in Scotland. Variations in the form of Runnick, Rinnick, Rennick are also recorded in Scotland. In view of the origin of the name I find it strange that little if any mention of the name is to be found in English reference books. Main areas where this name has flourished would appear to be in the Dumfriesshire district. The tartan detailed above bears a remarkable resemblance to the Clergy tartan in design though not in colours. Details of the sett were obtained from a specimen in the Catto Collection in Willowdale, Canada, but little if anything would appear to be known about the origin of this indeed rare tartan.
