Spaulding
Timothy S. Spaulding, MD
Baron of Balmachreuchie


Arms: Or, a two-handed sword paleways point downwards with a bordure nebuly Azure charged with three wolves' heads Or. Above the Shield is placed an Helm befitting the holder of the dignity of baron aforesaid with a Mantling Azure doubled Or

Crest: on a Wreath of the Liveries is set for Crest a Castle triple towered Argent masoned Sable windows and ports Argent a portcullis half-raised Gules.

Motto: "LORD DEFEND THIS HOUSE"

The shield is adapted from the shield of the last baron of Ashintully; the border nebuly denotes a definite but as yet unconfirmed connection to Spalding of Ashintully. The wolves heads were suggested by the Lord Lyon. The crest of the triple towered castle with half raised portcullis commemorates our ancestor Peter Spalding opening the gates of Berwick Castle to Robert the Bruce in 1318. The motto is adapted from the motto over the arms displayed on Ashintully Castle in Perthshire.

Painted by Ljubodrag Grujic.
