Clan Fraser Outlander – Fraser Modern

Jamie Fraser wears two different tartans in Outlander. When we meet him, he is wearing the Mackenzie tartan. His mother was born a Mackenzie, and he is hiding with her family.

The Mackenzie tartan is green, blue, white, and red. Later in the show, he wears the Fraser tartan. Jamie is a laird in the Fraser clan. The Fraser tartan is mostly red with thick green and blue stripes and thin white stripes.

The Frasers originated from Anjou in Normandy and accompanied William the Conqueror to England in 1066. Sir Simon Frazer held a portion of the lands of Keith in East Lothian and donated the church at Keith to the Abbey of Kelso in 1160. A later Simon Fraser supported William Wallace in his bid to liberate Scotland from the English.  At the Battle of Roslin in 1302, he defeated three divisions of the English army in one day. He was later captured by Edward I and executed with great cruelty.

Clan Fraser is a Scottish clan of the Scottish Lowlands. It is not to be confused with the Clan Fraser of Lovat who are a separate Scottish clan of the Scottish Highlands (though with a common ancestry). The Frasers are believed to have come from Anjou in France. The name Fraser may be derived from Fredarius, Fresel or Freseau. Another suggestion is that the Frasers were a tribe in Roman Gaul, whose badge was a strawberry plant (fraisier in French).
