Hill
James Hill

Arms: Per chevron wavy in chief per pale Azure and Sable and in base Argent, in chief an estoile Or and in base a bell Sable accompanied by two barrulets wavy crested to the sinister on the upper edge per pale Azure and Sable.

Above the shield is placed an helm befitting his degree, with an mantling Azure doubled Argent, and thereon a wreath of the liveries

Motto: "I WILL LIFT UP MINE EYES"

Granted: Court of the Lord Lyon, 28th October 1987. Lyon Register, Volume 67 Page 98.


�Per chevron wavy� represents a Hill. In the arms of other apparently unrelated Hills in Scotland, this is shown with the rising sun. In my arms, the Estoile, Bell and Waves allude to the Bell Rock Lighthouse off Arbroath which my great-great-grandfather Robert Hill, helped in the building of (1807/1811). My Motto is taken from Psalm 121, "I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help."

Obiit 2016. RIP.
