Edward J. H. Mallinson

Arms: Gules, a chevron Argent between in chief two roses of the Second barbed Vert, seeded Or and in base a pestle and mortar of the Second.

Crest: A mallard rising Proper

Motto: Is Leoir do'n La 'ole fein

Granted: The Court of the Lord Lyon 15th July 2005, Lyon Register, volume 88, page 33

The roses are the white rose of Yorkshire, where my family have lived since the late 18th century and the white rose of the Stewarts of which the Gray family, that of my wife, is a sept. The pestle and mortar is the traditional emblem of the Pharmacist, my profession and that of my wife and elder daughter.

The crest is a play on the first four letters of my surname and the last three of my Christian name.

The motto is the Gaelic translation of verse 34 of chapter 6 of St. Matthew's Gospel: "sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof".

The Arms were painted by Mrs. Patricia Bartram
