Archie Lumsden

Arms: Azure, on a chevron between two mullets Or in chief, and a wolfs head couped Argent in base, a buckle Azure between two escutcheons paleways Gules,

Crest: An earne, charged on the breast with a wheel Or and devouring a salmon Proper


The Arms are based on the Arms of the Chief of Lumsden, Gillem Lumsden of that Ilk and Blanerne.

The Mullet in base in the chief s Arms is replaced by the wolf s head couped from the Arms of the Fife branches of the family. The Buckle on the chevron is taken from the Arms of the Stewarts of Bonkle (the Lumsdens of Blanerne were feudal vassals of this family). This is between two escutcheons Gules indicitive of the holder's maternal Hay line and his office of Lumsden Sennachie.

The crest is the Blanerne crest of an earne (the European white-tailed sea eagle Haliaeetus albicilla and not, as frequently illustrated, a heron), differenced with a wheel Or for the holder's occupation as an engineer.

The Motto answers the Blanerne motto of "Beware in Tyme"
