THE SECRET OF THE DURIE USA 1836 COVERLET

You may remember in 2016 we were advised of a handsome reversible wool double bed coverlet with the name Hannah Durie March 4 1836 woven into each corner. A fuller story about these coverlets has been published in the December 2016 edition of ‘The Claymore’, the magazine of the US Council of Scottish Clans & Associations. We are still seeking descendents of Hannah Durie...To access the article Click the PDF downloads/The Secret of the Durie Coverlet 1836 - COSCA 2016.pdf

 

Scots Heritage Magazine - Spring 2016

An article by Dr Bruce Durie on Shennachies, what they are and what they do that appeared in the Scots Heritage magazine.

A Shennachie’s role was to uphold tradition and a modern version is still required. There are a number of Shennachies in existence, appointed as such by a Chief. Storyteller, historian, genealogist and keeper of clan ceremonies - a traditional Shennachie still deserves a voice in the modern world.

SCOTS Heritage Magazine is the official magazine of the Standing Council of Scottish Chiefs, published quarterly since 2013, it shares stories from Scotland's risch culture and history, profiles great Scots of the past and the present and covers events that shaped and shape Scotland.

Durie 'Clan of the Month' - The Scottish Banner, May 2015

While we were delighted that the Duries were selected to be 'Clan of Month' in the May 2015 edition of The Scottish Banner' there were two problems with the article. The first is that the Duries are not a 'clan', they are a family; the second is that the information, the origin of the family and its name, in the first part of the article, have long-since been disproved. However the second half of the piece is fine! And we are delighted to be mentioned in such publications so, having advised the author of the errors, we are all still good friends!
