Right to Bear Arms

Right to Bear Arms:


•••••

Our Coats of Arms are heraldically accurate depictions of an Armorial borne by a bearer of the depicted surname or one of its spelling variations, at some point in history. We create the Coats of Arm and crest by interpreting the Blazons (technical descriptions) in the most recognized Armorial source books.

•••••

To actually ‘bear’ arms, you must be granted the coat of Arms by one of the Colleges of Arms, or prove descent from someone who once bore the arms in question.

•••••

In England and Wales, Arms are granted under the authority of the Earl Marshall by the Garter King of Arms, in Scotland by the Lyon King of Arms, and in Ireland by the Ulster King of Arms. Similar bodies exist in Europe and in other countries.

•••••

There will certainly be more than one Coat of Arms associated with most surnames. We have generally tried to locate the oldest one on record for the region of interest.

•••••

Our Coats of Arms can be displayed with pride as a piece of historical artwork.
