Adams
His Honour John Roderick Seton Adams

Arms : Per chevron Gules and Argent in chief two cross crosslets fitchée Argent and in base a saltire Azure between an edock leaf Vert in chief and three crescents Gules in flanks and base.

Crest : A cross crosslet fitchée Gules surmounted by a sword in saltire Azure hilted and pommelled Or

Motto : VIRTUS VERITAS

Granted : The Court of the Lord Lyon 14th October 1987. Lyon Register, volume 71, folio 54.

The arms were granted in memory of my father George Gershom Adams.

The cross crosslets fitchée are for Adams, the dock leaf and saltire are for Marshall, my father’s maternal line. The three crescents are for Seton.

The crest has been used on seals, rings and silver for at least four generations of the family in Edinburgh but no earlier matriculation exists!
