Clan Oliphant-a Jacobite History
I had been researching my family tree since 2003 and was introduced to Outlander in 2005. I believe, in Drums of Autumn, where we see Jaime searching for his kinsman to set up with him at Fraser's Ridge and other kinsmen notations, DG mentions a Scottish name, Oliphant. It's only in passing, however, jumped off the page! I have Scottish roots through Clan Oliphant. I thought I would share the Oliphant's involvement in the Jacobite cause and the Oliphant tartan. Enjoy!
