Oliver Tartan & Clan

The Oliver family mainly lived within the area of Jedforest, just south of the Border town of Jedburgh. Jedforest was historically owned by the King and the Oliver’s were his tenants in chief, after a number of changes the forest was granted to Clan Douglas and Oliver’s continued to live in the area under the protection of the Clan. Today the Capon tree is the last survivor of the ancient Jed Forest.
