Emerson
Stuart George Emerson

Arms: Or, a riband enwreathed Azure and Gules between two bendlets of the Second each charged of a lion passant guardant Argent, armed and langued of the Third.

Crest: a demi bear rampant Azure, armed and langued Gules holding in the forepaws a spring of oak Proper fructed Or.

Motto: LEARN FROM THE PAST

All Emersons have bends on their shields. The riband enwreathed is because my mother's family name was Wilkie and all Wilkies have a fess enwreathed. So the fess enwreathed was turned through 45% to fit between the bendlets. Lions were chosen because I like animals and I also think that in heraldic art animals are very powerful charges (when well drawn). The crest of a demi bear rampant come from the arms of Warwick, the bear and ragged staff. The spring of oak is to represent the forest of Arden, which is also in Warwickshire (at least the remnants of it).

The painting is by Marco Foppoli.
