The associated coat of arms is recorded in Sir Bernard Burke's General Armory. Ulster King of Arms in 1884. Registered at Port Eliot and St. German's, County Cornwall. Edward Eliot Esq., of Coteland, County Devon, descended from Walter Eliot, who was returned as one of the gentry of that county, 1433, was father of John Eliot Esq., of St. Germans, County Cornwall, and Thomas Eliot, whose son, Richard Eliot, died on the 22nd June 1609, possessed of Port Eliot, the site and lands of the Priory of St. Germans, which was obtained from the Champernowne family in exchange for lands at Cotelands. The Eliot's are a border clan , although many of the family, it is alleged, took their name from the village of Eliot in Forfarshire. The Elliots of Redheugh were recognised as the principal family. The Elliots of Stobs originated in the 16th century and in 1666 Gilbert Elliot of Stobs was created a baronet of Nova Scotia. George, the youngest son of the 3rd baronet, was born in 1718. He entered the army and served in the War of the Austrian Succession and was wounded at the Battle of Dettigen. He was Governor of Gibralter when,in 1779, Spain and France laid siege to that important fortress. His defence of the Rock is one of the most glorious achievements in history. An interesting member of the family name was Grace Dalrymple Elliott, the courtesan, who was born in Scotland in 1758, the daughter of an Edinburgh advocate. In 1771, she married Sir John Elliott MD, who divorced her in 1774. She was the mistress successively or simultaneously of Lord Valentinia, Lord Cholmondley, The Prince of Wales and many others. She died in 1823 in Sevres, leaving an interesting but untrustworthy 'Journal of My Life during the Revolution'. Walter Elliot (1888-1958) was the Scottish politician, and Conservative MP for Lanark from 1918 until 1923. He was secretary of state for Scotland, and minister of health. He was also a writer and broadcaster. His wife, Baroness Katharine of Harwood, was created Scotland's first life peeress in October 1958.
