Motto: SERVA TERRAM

Matriculation: Court of the Lord Lyon, 27th July 1993. Lyon Register, Vol. 73, folio 116.

My arms were matriculated by my maternal grandfather, and then passed to me via a deed of resignation in favorem.
The crest, granted at the time of my matriculation, was designed to reflect my interest in heraldry and is composed of elements from the arms of the heraldic societies to which I belong, and the associated heraldic authorities. The lion comes from the arms of the Lord Lyon King of Arms, the College of Arms (supporters), the Heraldry Society of Canada (crest), the fact that it is a demi-lion comes from the crest of the Heraldry Society of Canada, and the fact that it is lion argent from the supporters of the College of Arms. The escutcheon is found in the arms of the Heraldry Society of Scotland, the Heraldry Society of Canada, the Lord Lyon, and the Canadian Heraldic Authority. The use of a red escutcheon comes from the arms of the Lord Lyon and the arms of the Heraldry Society of Scotland. Finally, the coronet on the lion comes from College of Arms' supporters. Making the coronet of fleurs-de-lis (instead of a ducal coronet) reflects the orle fleury in the arms of the Heraldry Society (of England).
