THE ABUSE OF ARMS 



iURELY even those who affect the greatest contempt for Heraldry will admit 
that if Arms are to be borne at all, it should be according to the laws of Arms ; 
and that, if the display of them be an empty vanity, it is a less creditable vanity 
to parade as our own those which belong of right to others. 

This is no deep or learned scientific treatise for the further guidance of 
those who are already Past- Masters in the knowledge of Armory and its laws. 
They ought to know its legal, as well as its antiquarian, aspect ; but I am sorry 
to say that many who pose before the world in such character either do not 
know, or will not know, the former. 

Consequently, as there is a far more familiar word than Armory, I propose to use this other word, 
" Heraldry," though in reality this latter covers a far wider field. It really includes within its meaning 
anything appertaining, or which has appertained, to the offifce or duties of the herald. Of later years, 
and at the present time, though the hymn-books may give the herald wings, and require him to carol 
joyfully — though cheap penny-a-liners and minor poets may stretch its meaning, and only know the 
word as a duplicate for " harbinger," and may apply it unreservedly to March winds and jackals, to 
sunrises or to sunsets, to the cuckoo or the sea-serpent, the parliamentary white hat or the big goose- 
berry, the word " herald " has acquired a very definite and stated meaning. A Herald — my critics to 
the contrary nevertheless — is hardly a man who simply writes books on Heraldry — at the best he is 
but an heraldic student. 

A Herald proper must be an Officer of Arms, and the official and recognised duties of the Officers 
of Arms in this latter age seem pretty well to be limited to those matters which relate to Armorial 
achievements in all their forms, to pedigrees, the devolution of hereditary titles, the ordering and 
arrangement of State ceremonies, to precedence, to knighthood and to the orders of knighthood, to 
installations, and to the proclamations of Peace and War, and the succession to the Crown. Such are 
now the duties of a Herald — such is really the Hmit of the meaning of the word Heraldry. 

" Heraldry has been contemptuously termed ' the science of fools with long memories.' There 
is more wit than wisdom in the remark, and with the many a smart saying has unfortunately a great 
advantage over a just one. 

It is impossible to say that there is any direct testimony to the existence of Armorial Bearings 
in the now accepted sense of the word earUer than the twelfth century, when they seem to have been 
adopted with one accord throughout Europe. Previous to that period we read of " white shields " 
and " red shields " and " gilded shields." In Salmund's Edda mention is made of a red shield with 
a golden border. The Encomiast of Emma speaks merely of the glittering effulgence of the shields 
suspended on the sides of the vessels of Canute. In the Anglo-Saxon illuminations we perceive the 
shields of warriors generally painted white, with red and blue borders and circles : on those of our 
Norman invaders as represented in the Bayeux Tapestry, a work at the earhest of the close of the 
eleventh century, we find crosses, rings, grotesque monsters, and fanciful devices of various descrip- 
tions, but nothing approaching a regular heraldic figure or disposition of figures. Some of the 
standards are striped and spotted in a fashion which may have originated the pales, bars, and 
roundels of the succeeding century, but as these devices are not repeated on any of the bearers' 
shields they cannot be considered as personal insignia. 

Thus we see that Heraldry as we know it. Heraldry even as it was understood in its earliest 
stages, had no existence at the time of the Norman Conquest, nor can any authenticated example 
be discovered of a proper Armorial shield prior to the first Crusade. Ere the second had reached 
its termination its usage was extensive and assured. That is all that is known of its origin, but 
undoubtedly — for it is a matter no one has as yet dreamed of disputing — the Crusades have exer- 
cised an influence difficult to truly estimate. Not only are a vast proportion of heraldic " charges " 
easily traceable to the Holy Land, but the assemblage of the flower of European chivalry in all its 
nationalities, all claiming nobility of birth, must have given a great impetus to the progress of a 
science devoted and confined to themselves, apart from the encouragement afforded to it by the 
requirement of some method of distinction amongst themselves. 

A writer of a bygone age has said that "Coates of Armes were inuented by our wise ancestors 
to these .3 ends :. The first was to honour and adorn the family of him that had well deserued 

V b

towardes his countrye. The seconde to him more worthy and famous above the rest which had not 
done merit, and thereby they might be prouoked to doe the like. The third was to differ out the 
severall lignes and issues from the noble ancestor descending ; so that the eldest borne might be 
known from the second, and he from the thirde." 

" Heraldry was not originated in England, but England was not long in following the lead placed 
before her, and though at no period perhaps within the British Isles has the love and reverence of 
Armory reached such a high degree of enthusiasm as has been sometimes accorded to Armorial 
Insignia elsewhere : still since the old Crusading days have our ancestors of each succeeding genera- 
tion handed down a respect and admiration for these marks of lineage, rank, and high degree that 
Socialism and Anarchy, with all their changeability of visage, have failed to suppress in spite of the 
manifold and multifarious methods and manners in which these ideas have passed through the land, 
in the Wars of the Roses, in the Reformation, the Commonwealth, the Revolution, and " the Hyde 
Park tub-thumper." 

" There is no subject more difficult to be dwelt on than that of honourable descent ; none on 
which the world are greater sceptics, none more offensive to them ; and yet there is no quality to 
which every one in his heart pays so great a respect" — (Sir Egerton Brydges' Autobiography, p. 153). 

And by reason of this very reverence and respect. Armorial Bearings are one of the earliest 
outward and visible signs which make their appearance when a family commences its rise in the 
scale of social eminence. 

At first, ere their full lustre and significance had been realised, those who bore Arms selected 
them as pleased their fancy, but as a name became glorious so did the pictorial sign upon the shield 
associated with that name become renowned, and a son inherited his father's Arms with his father's 
sword : and Armorial Bearings almost from the very birth of the science have been hereditary. 

Let a privilege or a usage be created, and its abuse rapidly follows. Merchants placed their 
" merchant-marks " upon escutcheons, and called them coats-of-arms when as yet their rank did not 
warrant the assumption. New men called themselves by old names and claimed the ancient Arms. 

The monks of Battle Abbey are known to have tampered with their roll, and centuries ago the 
heralds deplored and tried to keep in check the vagaries and usurpations of these " painter-fellows," 
as they then described them, referring thus contemptuously to those handicraftsmen who undertook 
the actual labour of cutting seals and emblazoning Arras. Had these handicraftsmen stopped theirr 
hands at these legitimate limits, little abuse, comparatively speaking, could have crept "in, but they 
did not ; they hankered after the fees — in their eyes veritable flesh-pots of Egypt — of the official 
heralds. Then, as now, the true position and authority of the Officers of Arms was not properly 
known or understood. Then, as now, these "painter-fellows" encroached, and then, as now, they 
profited by the lack of heraldic knowledge current among the general public, and they purposed to 
grant, confirm, and assign Arms. Rooks, we are told, will only build their nests of two kinds of 
sticks,* and by a similar analogy the Arms these outsiders dealt in were likewise of but two kinds 
^firstly. Arms which emanated solely from their own imagination, and which were bogus from 
beginning to end, and secondly. Arms which were perfectly legitimate, and which belonged to 
ancient families, which legitimate coats-of-arms these " painter-fellows ' assigned to other families 
bearing the same or similar names, without the ghost of a pretence, and without the shadow of a 
possibility of establishing a descent from 'is\% bona-fide holders. That was how the abuse began 
centuries ago. At the present time, at the close of the nineteenth century, this same abuse runs 
riot, and now, as then, it is in the forefront, and the most prominent of all heraldic follies. Though 
beside this particular illegality all others seem but as mere peccadilloes, there are many other matters 
which can but come under the same heading and description. To a long-standing abuse, when 
the legal penalties therefor seem almost to have lapsed into desuetude, there is but one remedy, 
namely, publicity. It enlightens those who are sinning through ignorance, it may prevent others 
falling into the same errors ; and as to those who are of knowledge and aforethought wilfully dis- 
regarding the laws of Arms and the laws of the Realm — well, it advertises their weaknesses. This 
remedy I propose to try. One of my critics has asked what business it is of mine to criticise Arms 
when the College of Arms remains silent. I stand in a widely different position from the Officers 
of Arms. I much question if they are brought into contact with one tithe of the heraldic abuses 
that I am, for people hardly of their own free-will exhibit to an accredited Officer of Arms preten- 
sions which they know can be at once detected as bogus or illegal. On the other hand, the indivi- 
duals comprising the world at large seem to fancy that the said world at large, outside themselves, is 
unable to discover the real character of the Arms they lay claim to. Consequently, as I am simply 
but another unit in this aforesaid world, the Arms and garbled pedigrees have been sent up to me 
apparently with guileless simplicity, either for insertion in this book, " Armorial Families," or in 
"The Book of Public Arms," or for the crests to be included in my edition of " Fairbairn." I had 
no reason when I commenced heraldic writing to have looked with suspicion upon the informa- 
tion which was afforded me, but as each successive case I investigated turned out to be a perver- 

* Straight ones and crooked ones. 



Clje atiu0e of arm0

sion of the truth, my standpoint had to change. I found, first of all, that the fact of living in the 
same county, or in the adjoining one for the matter of that, or even in the county adjoining that, 
was to the ordinary mind quite sufficient evidence for descent to be claimed ("in an unbroken 
line," my correspondents usually state) from any armigerous person or any celebrity* who at 
any time since the Norman Conquest (and many don't even stick at the Conquest) have had a resi- 
dence in that county. At first I was always inclined to think that a person to make such a statement 
must at least have some evidence to support him, even though it might not be sufficiently stable 
and consecutive to pass muster as a pedigree before the Chapter of the College of Arms. I 
couldn't have made a greater mistake. I then found that people really entitled to a pedigree of 
perhaps five or six generations, and to a modern grant of Arms, were seldom content with it, and 
it usually came to me as a genealogical tree of fifteen or sixteen generations, and the Arms had 
generally been granted by Edward III., or at the latest by Queen Elizabeth. And here is a pretty 
safe way to judge a pedigree if the time cannot be spared to investigate it thoroughly. Whenever 
a pedigree in the male line runs back far up into antiquity — or I will say even this, whenever a 
pedigree commences prior to the beginning of the eighteenth century, just look at it closely. If in 
the early part of it there figure celebrities, with full dates of marriages and deaths, and details of all 
the children, and there follow later the words, "from whom descends," or the words, "whose 
descendant," without the details of the actual relationships, the odds that that particular pedigree 
is "faked" are 999 to i. 

Another little failing that was quickly made apparent to me is this. When a family have been 
illegally making use of Arms for some time, and are then, for some reason or other, induced or 
required to place their Armorial matters upon a legal footing, and a Patent of Arms is obtained under 
the hands and seals of the Kings of Arms, the coat-of-arms which has previously been in use is never 
granted to the person intact If a desire for a coat similar to the one in use be preferred, some 
alterations and additions to it are introduced, varying according to the discretion of the Officers of 
Arms and the circumstances of the case, in order to render it a different and new coat-of-arms, and to 
satisfy the requirements of one of the rules of the College, that no two coats-of-arms which may be 
granted by its officers shall be alike, t The usual tale I am told — if the fact of the grant being modern 
by any chance transpires — is, if you please, that the alterations and additions are " augmentations " 
granted for some special service. Some of the older grants simply made additions to the coats which 
had been previously used, and this, to an ordinary individual, might lend some semblance to the 
idea. To the propagators of such fables I would add this fact to their knowledge. An " augmen- 
tation '' proper requires a special warrant from the Sovereign. The " augmentations " legitimately 
existing are comparatively very few in number, and are all very well known. And another foible is 
this. Very few people care to admit that they have had a " grant " of Arms. The usual tale is, 
" My people had been using these Arms for a very long time, but documentary evidence, so very hard 
to get, &c., &C., couldn't strictly prove a legal title to them, &c., so the College of Arms 'confirmed' 
them to me with a very slight difference." The facts generally turn out to be that the Arms were 
" found " for 3s. 6d. at an heraldic stationer's, perhaps ten or perhaps twenty years ago, or perhaps 
supplied gratis with a " guinea box of stationery." It was then afterwards ascertained that they were 
quoted in Burke's " General Armory " as belonging to a family of the same name, which family were 
promptly claimed as ancestors. " The Arms are the same, you know, we must be descended from 
them." There are few people who could summon up sufficient audacity to offer to the critics such 
another pedigree as the notorious Coultart genealogy ; but there is still a good deal of unblushing 
audacity in existence. Times out of number have I been informed that Arms submitted to me have 
been granted, or confirmed, or certified, by the Officers of Arms. Even the dates of grants have been 
quoted to me when no such grants exist, and the certificates when asked for are never to be found. 
I call those sort of statements untruths pure and simple. 

Small wonder that with such a plenitude of these falsehoods my credulity waned below zero, and 
now is non-existent. Of the hundreds with whom I have been brought in contact I could count on 
the fingers of my one hand those people whom I know at the very beginning have told me the truth, 
the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. Consequently, though it is a brutal admission to have 
to make, I cannot believe, and do not believe for one moment, any man's account of his own 
family, or take his word concerning them. No matter how truthful a man may be, his probity never 
seems to have stability on that one point. 

If any ordinary individual tell you he is descended in the male line from some one who figures 
upon the glorious roll of Battle Abbey, or that his ancestor " came over with the Conqueror," write 
him down a perverter of the truth at once. Mr. Evelyn Philip Shirley published some number of 
years ago a book which deserves a greater name and a far wider reputation than it has received. 

* One family to my knowledge claim descent from Cardinal Wolsey, and have assumed his Arms. 

t I do not wish any opportunity for misconstruction. At the times of the Visitations, when two families — though 
not the least relationship might exist between them — proved a right to identical Arms, these were allowed to them both, 
and the above rule has only applied to grants.

I refer to "The Noble and Gentle Men of England." He took a far less ambitious standpoint 
than the Norman Conquest, simply including within his covers all those then Arms-bearing 
families who had held their land in legitimate uninterrupted male descent since the reign of King 
Henry VII. to the present day. Of all the landholders of to-day, of all the county families within or 
without the pages of Walford ; of all the names in " Burke's Peerage " or in Kelly's " Upper Ten 
Thousand," how many families, titled and untitled together, think you does his book contain ? Three 
hundred and thirty. Some number of the very older families are Saxon, but the great majority only 
take their start from the Wars of the Roses, that great social upheaval which shook to its very foun- 
dation the aristocracy of England. Read " De Nova Villa," and read the "Last of the Barons," if 
you wish to know what became of the ancient families of England. Of the twenty-five Barons who 
signed or affixed their seals to " Magna Charta," of which we so proudly boast, not a solitary male 
descendant is known to exist. 

Fuller, writing in his book, " Worthies of Bedfordshire," says : — " Hungry Time hath made a 
glutton's meal on this Catalogue of Gentry (the list of gentry of the reign of Henry VI.), and hath 
left but a very little morsel for manners remaining." 

The pedigrees in "Burke's Peerage" in all conscience are lax enough, but even there but one 
hundred and eleven are taken back to the time of the Norman Conquest, and of these forty-nine 
are Saxon, Welsh, Scottish, or Irish. There are nearly seven hundred Peers and over eleven 
hundred Baronets and all their relations within the covers of " Burke's Peerage ; " there are nearly 
five thousand families in the " Landed Gentry," and all their relations ; there are sixteen thousand 
names in Walford's " County Families; " there are twenty-four thousand individuals in " Kelly." As I 
have said, but sixty-two pedigrees in the Peerage are taken back to the Normans, and Shirley admits 
but three hundred and thirty families. Where do the rest come in ? What price for the Norman 
descent of the residue ? And yet almost every other man you speak to on the subject will tell you 
his "ancestors came in with the Normans." Were there no Britons? no Welsh? no Scots? no 
Irish ? no Danes ? no Huguenots ? no Flemings ? no Saxons ? no Jews ? Are there no German 
clerks or pauper immigrants to-day ? Why, in a couple of centuries, perhaps in less, they will tell you 
they are descended from the companions of Duke William of Normandy. 

The first point I wish to draw attention to is the wholesale display of bogus Arms — perhaps I 
should be more correct in saying the wholesale bogus display of Arms. These, as I have previously 
stated, are of two kinds : i. Arms which, apart from the question of ownership, are of no legal origin; 
2. Legal Arms used by people to whom they don't belong. The latter predominate. But first of all 
it is necessary to make it clear what constitutes the right to bear Arms. 

The right differs widely in the three kingdoms, and they all differ widely from the laws current 
in the rest of Europe. But now, and throughout this Introduction, I shall confine myself to the 
United Kingdom. It is of no use for the blind to lead the blind, and I have no sufficiently intimate 
knowledge of either the heraldic or the common law in vogue in the various countries of Europe 
to warrant my offering to teach others what I am by no means sure I know myself. 

In the infancy of Heraldry no control existed or was exercised by anybody over Armorial matters. 
It was 

' ' The good old rule, the simple plan, 
That they should take who have the power. 
And they should keep who can." 

But this era was of short duration. Almost the first step in the United Kingdom towards establishing 
control was taken in England, and the Corporation of the College of Arms was established by Royal 
Charter in the reign of Richard III. Now, there are very many people who grandiloquently assert 
that " they don't recognise the authority of the College of Arms." Such a statement sounds very 
big, but It IS pure nonsense. They might just as well proclaim themselves Anarchists at once, 
and "not recognise" the Sovereign or the Houses of Parliament. And I have also found that any 
mention of the authority of the College of Arms is usually the signal for an outburst of abuse (and 
abuse pure and simple, not criticism) against the College itself and its officials. I will be no party 
to any such controversy. Nothing I can say will add to or detract from their authority, or give 
more weight to its expression. I can simply make the knowledge of it more public ; for one cannot 
but admit that nothing can alter the fact that the Officers of Lyon Office (for Scotland), of Ulster's 
Office (for Ireland), and of the College of Arms (for the whole of the rest of Her Majesty's dominions) 
have the sole authority and control of Armorial matters. 

I am not writing on behalf of any of the Colleges or Offices of Arms ; I am not connected in 
any way with them. I am not writing at the instigation of any Officer of Arms. I am simply a 
member of the general public, brought closely into touch with the laws and the practice of Arms • 
and if the expression of the knowledge I have obtained prevent any person ignorantly following the 
tempting and well-worn ruts of heraldic abuse, I shall be satisfied. 

Now Arms are a matter of honour. The Sovereign is the fountain of honour. 



Ct)e aftUiSe of armiS ix 

It has been said that if this be so, then the Kings of Arms are the " turncocks." It is a coarse 
and unpoetical way of putting it ; but the remark has the advantage of a great deal of wit, and a large 
measure of accuracy. 

In the reign of Henry V. (1417) a Royal Proclamation was made that no man in future be 
allowed to bear Arms without authority. The next step was the consolidation of the various Officers 
of Arms in England into the Corporation of the College of Arras. The two Charters by which they 
hold and exercise their authority are given in Noble's " History of the College of Arms." I don't 
ask any one unquestioningly to take my word that the authority exists. They can convince them- 
selves by referring to the Charters in question, to the Royal Warrants appointing the Visitations, to 
the reports submitted by the Law Officers of the Crown to His Majesty King George III. in connec- 
tion with the dispute between the Officers of the Order of the Bath and the Officers of the College 
of Arms, and to the Patent appointing any King of Arms to his office, which, to a certain extent, 
recites his powers and privileges. Perhaps the most important of all, as to a certain extent defining 
the right to bear Arms, are the warrants commanding the Visitations. 

So much for England. Let us now see how matters stand in Scotland. The whole subject 
is very tersely and pertinently put forward in the " Ordinary of Scottish Arms," from which I am 
permitted to quote. 

" The earliest Scottish Armorial in existence is said to have been prepared by or under the 
superintendence of Sir David Lindsay of the Mount about 1542. It is impossible to say whether it 
took from the first an official character, but that there must have been some such recognised record 
before the close of the sixteenth century is clear from several references which are made to the Liber 
insigniorum, or "Book of Arms," in the Acts of the Scottish Parliament at that period. In 1592 an 
Act was passed authorising the Lyon and his heralds to hold visitations throughout the realm in 
order to distinguish the Arms of the various noblemen and gentlemen, and ' thaireftir to matriculat 
thame in thair buikis and registeris.' It is unfortunate that this permission to make heraldic visita- 
tions was never largely taken advantage of; had it been, and had the registers indicated in the Act 
been properly kept, it is unlikely that the Privy Council would have, within the next forty years, 
practically authenticated as an official record Sir David Lindsay's MS. above referred to, which they 
did in the following terms : — 

" ' This Booke and register of Armes, done by Sir David Lindesay of the Month, Lyone King of 
Arms, reg. Ja. 5, conteines 106 leaves, which register was approvine be the Lordies of his Majesties 
Most Honourable Privie Counsale at Halierude hous 9 December 1630. 

" ' Sir James Balfour, Lyone. 
" ' Thomas Drysdaill, Hay Herauld. 
"'Register.'" 

" Whatever may have become of the official registers previous to the date of the commencement 
of the present one, it is certain that many collections of Arms were from to time made, both by the 
Officers of Arms and others. Sir Robert Forman, Lyon (1555-1567), presented to Queen Mary a 
roll containing 267 Scottish coats-of-arms. In addition to the 'Workman MS.' now in the 
Lyon Office, at least four other Armorials belonging to the sixteenth century, and relating to Scot- 
land, are in existence and were shown at the Heraldic Exhibition held at Edinburgh in 1891, while 
the seventeenth century collections are comparatively numerous. As time went on, however, the 
absence of an authentic and official Register of Arms was more and more felt : in 1639 the Com- 
mittee on Articles apipointed the Lyon to do diligence for cognoscing and matriculating all Arms, and 
to represent the same to the Privy Council, that they might take some course to prevent Arms being 
assumed irregularly. In 1662 it was apparently found that the registration of Arms was more 
neglected than ever, though Cromwell had appointed one if not two Lyons during his administration 
of the Government. By an Act passed in that year it was provided inter alia that "... Consider- 
ing what disorders and confusions have arisen and are dayly occasioned by the usurpation of Cadents, 
who against all rules assume to themselffs the armes of the cheefT house of the familie out of which 
they are descendit, and that other mean persones who can nowayes deryve thair succession from the 
families whose names they bear, as they have just assumed the name, doe therafter weare the coat 
of that name to which they pretend without any warrand or grund whatsumever, ... no younger 
brother or caudent of any familie presume to carie the armes of that familie bot with such distinc- 
tions as shall be given by the Lyon King of Armes ; " and it was likewise provided that all persons 
were to have their Arms examined and renewed by the Lyon, and inserted in his register. This Act, 
however, did not remain long in the Statute-Book : considerable dissatisfaction appears to have been 
created by it, possibly from the amount of the fees which it entitled the Lyon to exact at the funeral 
solemnities of the nobility and their wives, and it was repealed in the following year, 1663. It is not 
very clear whether the above-quoted allusion to the Lyon Register can be taken as implying that 
at that time there was such a record in existence, or whether it merely means that a Register was 



X Clje 3t)use of arms 

then to be commenced. But as the present Register was certainly commenced within the next ten 
years as new, it may fairly be inferred that no oflScial Register of Arms, with the exception of Sir 
David Lindsay's MS. mentioned above as having been approved by the Privy Council, was in 
existence at the period of the Restoration. What had become of the old Registers, if such there had 
been, has been a matter of some speculation : both water and fire have been held to be answerable 
for their destruction. It is by some thought that they may have formed part of that cargo of records 
originally carried off to London by Cromwell, and ultimately jettisoned from the frigate 'Eagle' or 
lost with the ship ' Elizabeth ' of Burntisland, when, owing to the representations of the Scottish 
Parliament, they were being restored to their proper home. On the other hand, Arnot in his ' History 
of Edinburgh ' mentions that the Lyon Office Records were burned in a fire which took place about 
1670, and that the Act under which the present Register was instituted was in consequence passed 
shortly afterwards. As, however, there is no mention made of any such fire in that Act, which merely 
alludes in general terms to the ' many irregularities of these late times,' it can hardly be regarded 
as authentic history, and it is unnecessary to do more than allude to the causes which have been 
thought likely to have induced the Scottish Legislature to take the steps they did for the formation 
of an entirely new Register. It has been shown that an attempt had already been made in 1662 to 
improve the Registration of Arms, but it had come to nothing. In 1672 the Parliament again 
addressed themselves to the subject, and this time with success : they had the advantage of a member 
who was himself well acquainted with Heraldry — Sir George Mackenzie of Rosehaugh — and he not 
improbably took a special interest in drawing the Act, which took its place on the Statute-Book as 
the Act of 1672, cap. 47I. It ratified generally the Act of 1592 so far as it related to visitations and 
the penalties to be inflicted on persons using Arms without authority, and it ordered all persons of 
whatsoever degree, who were in the habit of using Arms, to give in a description of such Arms and 
of their lineage, to the Lyon Clerk in order that they might be distinguished with 'congruent 
differences,' and that the Lyon might enter them in his books and registers, and might grant Arms 
to 'vertuous and well deserving persones.' The Register now instituted was to be considered as 
the true and unrepealable rule of all Arms and Bearings in Scotland, and was ordered to remain in 
the Lyon Office as a public register of the kingdom for all time coming. All persons who used Arms 
after the expiration of a year and a day from the passing of the Act rendered themselves liable to a 
fine of one hundred pounds, and the goods on which the Arms were engraved were to be escheat 
to the king." 

The Act reads as follows, and I think it better to quote it in full, as it definitely lays down the 
important point that cadets in Scotland are not entitled to bear the Arms of the head of their family 
until they have been matriculated to them with a difference : — 

Copy of the Act concerning the Priviledges of the Office of Lyon King at Armes. 

47. Our Soveraigne Lord Considering, that albeit by the 125 Act of the 12 Parlia' holden by his 
Maiesties grandfather in the yeir 1592 the usurpation of Armes by any of his Maiesties leidges without 
the authority of Lyon King of Armes is expresly discharged ; And that in order thereto, Power and 
Comission is granted to the Lyon King of Armes or his Deputes, to visite the whole Armes of Noble- 
men, Barrons and Gentlemen, & to matriculate the same in their Registers, and to fine in One Hun- 
dreth pounds, all others who shall unjustlie usurp armes ; As also to Escheit all such goods and geir 
as shall have unwarrantable Armes ingraven on them. Yet amongst the many irregularities of these 
late times, very many have assumed to themselvis Armes, who should bear none, and many of these 
who may in law bear have assumed to themselvis ye Armes of their chieff, without distinctions, or 
Armes which were not carried by them or their predicessors. Therefor His Maiestie, with advice and 
consent of his Estates of Parlia' Ratifies and Approves the foresaid Act of Parliament ; And for the 
more vigorous prosecution thereof Doth hereby Statute and Ordain that lettirs of publication of this 
present Act be direct to be execute at the mercat cross of the held Burghs of the Shires, Stewartries, 
Bailliaries of Royalty & Regallitie and Royal Burrowghs chargeingall and sundry Prelates, Noblfr 
men. Barons & Gentlemen who make use of any Armes or Signes armoriall within the space of one 
yeir aftir the said publication, to bring or send ane account of what armes or Signes armoriall they 
are accustomed to use ; and whither they be descendants of any familie the Armes of which familie 
they bear, and of what Brother of the ffamilie they are descended ; With Testificats from persones of 
Honour, Noblemen or Gentlemen of qualitie anent the Verity of their having and useing those Armes, 
and of their descent as afoirsd, to be delivered either to the Clerk of the Jurisdiction where the per- 
sones duells, or to the Lyon Clerk at his office in Edinburgh, at the option of the party, upon their 
receipts gratis without paying any thing therefore : Which Receipt shall be a sufficient exoneration to 
them, from being obleidged to produce again, to the eflfect that the Lyon King of Armes may distin- 
guish the sds Armes with congruent differences, and may matriculat the same in his Bookes & Regis- 
ters, and may give Armes to vertuous and well deserving Persones, and Extracts of all Armes 
expressing the blasonmg of the Arms undir his hand and seall of office : For Which shall be payed

to the Lyon the soume of Tuentie merkes by Every Prelate & Nobleman, and Ten merks by Every 
Knight & Baron, and five merkes by every other persone bearing Armes, and noe more : And his 
Mat'* hereby Dispenses with any penalties that may arise be this or any proceiding act for bearing 
Armes, befor the Proclamation to be issued hereupon. And it is Statute & Ordained with consent 
forsd that the sd Register shall be respected as the true and unrepeallable rule of all Armes & Bear- 
ings in Scotland to remain with the Lyons office as a publict Register of the Kingdome, and to be 
transmitted to his Successors in all tyme comeing : And that whosoevir shall use any other Armes 
any manner of way, aftir the expireing of year & day from the date of the Proclamation to be issued 
hereupon in maner forsd shall pay One Hundred pounds money Mies quoties to the Lyon, and shall 
likewise escheat to his Maiestie all the moveable Goods & Geir upon which the fds Armes are 
engraven, or otherwise represented. And his Maiestie with consent forsd Declaires that it is onlie 
allowed for Noblemen & Bishopes to subscrive by their titles ; And that all others shall subscrive 
their Christned names, or the initiall letter thereof with there Sirnames, and may if they please adject 
the designations of their Lands, prefixing the word Of to the fds designations. And the Lyon King 
at Armes and his Brethren are required to be carefull of informeing themselvis of the contraveiners 
heirof, and that they acquaint his Maiesties Councill therewith, who are hereby impowered to punish 
them as persones disobedient to and contraveiners of the Law. It is likewise hereby Declaired that 
the Lyon and his Brethren Heraulds are Judges in all such causes concerning the malversation of 
Messingers in their office, and are to enjoy all other priviledges belonging to their Office which are 
secured to them by the Lawes of this Kingdome, and according to former practice. 

Under a strict interpretation of the above Act, this opportunity of "matriculation" of ancient 
Scottish Arms could be held to have long since lapsed. I am in no way speaking for Lyon, nor do 
I wish to in any way hamper his discretion, but I believe it to be correct, and consequently it cannot 
be too widely known that the present Lyon King is by no means averse, if satisfactory evidence can 
be produced, to still exercise his prerogative and discretion, and matriculate at the present date Arms 
which can be shown to have been authoritatively borne prior to the passing of the above Act. 

In Ireland the powers of Ulster King of Arms are best defined by the Patent creating the first 
Ulster. This can be seen in " Rymer's Fcedara," but most of the powers of Ulster King are recited 
in the Patent of each successive occupant of the office. 

Owing to the fact that the records in Ulster's Office are not so complete as is the case in 
England, Ulster King of Arms has the power in his discretion to confirm Arms which it can be shown 
have been continuously borne for a certain number of generations (I believe four), even though they 
may have been previously of no legal authority, and this power is continually exercised ,• but as a 
general, nay, an almost invariable rule, some mark is placed upon the Arms, though usually a very 
trifling one, to distinguish in the eyes of the learned those Arms borne by virtue of a confirmation 
from those for which the right has been fully proved. 

Briefly, then, to sum up, to establish the right to bear Arms in England it is necessary to prove 
legitimate male descent from some person to whom a grant of Arms has been made, or from some 
person to whom Arms were confirmed at the Visitations ; in Ireland the same, or else from some 
person to whose descendants Arms have been confirmed. Failing this, there is no alternative but to 
obtain a grant of Arms yourself, or, if you be of Irish descent, and can produce the necessary 
evidenccj a confirmation. In Scotland, if you are the heir male of a grantee, or of any one to whom 
Arms have been matriculated, you are entitled to bear these Arms ; if you can only establish a junior 
descent, you must have the Arms matriculated to yourself, even if it be your father who is the grantee ; 
if you cannot show any such descent, you must petition for a grant. 

Now with regard to the bogus display of Arms, there are sins of omission and sins of commission. 
Very few people indeed claim less than they are entitled to, and the only sin of omission of any 
consequence is the cool disregard which is paid to the marks of illegitimacy. A person of illegiti- 
mate birth has assuredly no Arms. Many people will tell you that it is simply a question of 
placing what they colloquially term the "bar sinister" upon the escutcheon, in exactly the same 
manner as a second son in England or Ireland may charge his Arms with a crescent, the third with 
a mullet, the fourth with a martlet, and so on.* But this is not the case at all. He must either do 
one of two things. He must petition for a grant of Arms, in which case he is under no necessity to 
disclose his illegitimacy. But he will have an entirely new coat-of-arms granted to him. Or else he 
must first prove of whom he is the natural son, and then petition for a Royal License to bear the name 
and Arms of his putative father. If he adopt the latter course, and the Royal License be granted to 
him, he will find he is permitted to bear the Arms with " due and proper marks of distinction." Now 
the grant of a perfectly new coat with no mark of illegitimacy, costs exactly the same as the grant of 
the old one with these " due and proper marks," so that if a man deliberately elects to proclaim his 
relationship to any family, it is only fair to other and legitimate members of that family that the 

* The laws of Arms only provide differences for nine sons of the same father, h correspondent wrote to me the 
other day in good faith, to ask what his difference would be as the twenty-first surviving son of the same father and 
mother. I was forced to admit I did not know. I wonder what would be done. 



xii Clje atjuse of 2Lxm0 

manner of his relationship should also be indicated, for his birth cannot be an equivalent of their 
legitimate descent. 

I grant it is through no fault of the man himself, and consequently I refrain from giving any list 
of those whom I know to be offending in this respect. There are several in the " Peerage," and 
matters are certainly made easier for them by the fact that these " due and proper marks of distinction " 
do not always figure upon their Arms therein. This is very unjust to their legitimate relatives, and it 
is breaking the law of Arms, and is not in keeping with the terms therein recited, upon which the 
Royal License to bear the name and Arms was conceded to them. 

And concerning this colloquial term " bar sinister." There cannot possibly be such a thing, for 
the " bar " in Armory is neither dexter nor sinister. The term is merely a misnomer for " bend sinister." 
The bend sinister is given in all heraldic books as an ancient mark of illegitimacy ; but it has long 
since been discarded, and is now never granted on a shield, though a bendlet wavy sinister is some- 
times, in fact nearly always, placed across the crest. A Mton sinister, which is a bendlet sinister 
couped, is the mark reserved for Royal illegitimates, but it is not universal. I can call to mind at 
the moment no coat-of-arms correctly in use at the present day upon which the bend sinister occurs 
save the "Shiffner" coat (which I believe is of foreign origin) and the Burne Jones coat, and in 
these it does not occur as a mark of illegitimacy ; nor do I know of any coat in use which bears the 
mark which the laws of Arms are said to provide for the base-born son of a noble woman, I find the 
mark now in use is not generally known even amongst those who profess to have made sortie study 
of Heraldry, and I am only aware of one book in which it is mentioned ; and curiously enough it is not 
a mark of illegitimacy at all in Scotland : though, knowing its English character, I believe it is a little 
fought shy of even there. Consequently, as I have not the least desire to make it in any way more 
difficult for those who have the misfortune to bear it, I have no intention of advertising what it is. 
The only other sin of omission that I know is the objection some few people have to the double coat 
consequent upon a double name. For instance, if your name be Jones, and you get Her Majesty's 
Royal License for yourself and your descendants to bear the additional name of Smith, and to bear 
the Arms of Smith quarterly with those of Jones, that quarterly Smith-Jones coat becomes one indi- 
visible coat, and you have no more right to separate it again than you would have to discard half the 
charges upon a simple coat because you didn't like them. 

But when we come to the sins of commission, their name is legion. In the first place, by the law 
of Arms, the right of bearing either crest or motto is denied to a lady. In the olden days a Joan of 
Arc was a wild exception, and it was universally conceded that no woman was capable of wearing a 
helmet. The "new woman" may have changed this into a fiction in her crusade against her com- 
plementary sex, but in the far-off ages Amazons, either Christian or Barbarian, were an unheard-of 
quantity, and the laws of Arms were irrevocably constructed centuries ago. Anyhow the fiction (I 
daren't call it anything else) did exist, and consequently, as the crest was then an ornament inseparable 
from the helmet, the right to a feminine display thereof was denied. It is so still. The motto, 
anciently the "cri-de-guerre" likewise, the shield also. Now the domain of the "ladye-faire" in olden 
time was at the spinning-wheel — would that it were so still — and the "distaff" was a peculiarly 
feminine ornament and prerogative. The distaff was supposed to resemble the heraldic lozenge 
in form and figure — it does so in some slight degree. Consequently the law of Arms allows a 
maiden lady to bear the Arms, upon a lozenge, which appear on her father's shield. When left 
a widow, she impales her late husband's Arms with her father's, and bears that combination 
upon a lozenge. Now here is another little anomaly. Heraldic law knows no Married Woman's 
Property Act, and concedes them no " separate estate," and consequently in his lifetime the husband 
bears the Arms " for his wife," and the impalement takes its place in his shield and under the pro- 
tection of his helmet. If the wife be an heraldic " heiress " (the exact meaning is ejcplained later 
on), though he is at liberty still simply to impale the coat if he prefer, the husband is allowed 
instead to place the Arms of his wife's family upon a small escutcheon in the centre of his own 
shield, called an "escutcheon of pretence," because through his wife he "pretends" to the repre- 
sentation of her family. And if the said heiress survives her husband, she usually places her father's 
Arms on the same escutcheon in the centre of a lozenge of her husband's Arms, And the " fic- 
tion " of the feminine non-ownership of Arms is kept up further. By the English law of Arms, a 
"difference" mark is ipso facto provided for the second and all younger sons to place upon their 
father's coat-of-arms. There are none for daughters, each bearing exactly the same Arms and differ- 
ences as the father bore. But the Scottish law, which provides that all younger sons shall have no 
Arms until a matriculation of their father's with a difference shall have been made to them, allows 
all the daughters to bear their father's Arms upon a lozenge, and allows the husbands to impale 
these Arms without further " difference." 

But the point is that widows and unmarried girls must show that they have no helmet to pro- 
tect them ; in other words, they must bear their Armorial Insignia upon a lozenge (the same figure as 
a diamond upon a pack of cards), and they must not use a crest. 

And now, on the subject of the conjunction of the Arms of man and wife, I will not inflict upon 



C|)e abuse of atmr xiii 

j^ou the old heraldic jargon of " baron et femme," but the rule is simply this. First of all find out 
whether your father-in-law is or was legally entitled to bear Arms. Don't think that because you are 
entitled to bear Arms anything will do for an impalement, because it won't. Both of them 
must be irreproachable. Then divide your shield by a straight line down the middle ; place the 
whole of your own Arms on the dexter side,* and place the pronominal coat of your wife's father 
in the remaining half. This is called " impaling " the two coats. 

If you are not entitled to Arms yourself, you are not at liberty to take the Arms of your wife's 
family. Her rights to bear or transmit any Arms or quarterings, whatever they are, become and 
must remain dormant until such time as you or the descendants of your marriage with her choose to 
establish a right to Arms in the male line. If you are a knight of any Order having the right to 
surround your own escutcheon with the ribbon or collar of an Order, you must use two escutcheons. 
On the one are simply your own Arms so surrounded, and on the other your own Arms impaled with 
those of your wife's family ; the idea being that your knighthood is personal to yourself, and that you 
cannot share it with your wife. Just the same, a bishop cannot share his episcopal rank with his 
wife, and.h^ has to use two escutcheons if his wife be entitled to Arms. The Scottish Anglican 
bishops and the Irish' Anglican bishops created since the disestablishment of the Church in 
Ireland, and all Roman Catholic bishops, have no Arms for their sees. If a woman be of higher 
rank than her husband, or possess rank in her own right, she cannot share it with him. For instance, 
take a peeress in her own right. By right of her heirship, the husband would place the Arms 
of the family upon an escutcheon of pretence upon his own, and he is allowed to place her coronet 
above the escutcheon of pretence, but he has no right to her supporters, or to place her coronet above 
his own escutcheon. Here again two escutcheons must be used, for on the sinister side of his own 
he must repeat her father's Arms upon a lozenge, surmounted by her coronet and between her sup- 
porters. In the same way the husband could not claim a share in a double-headed eagle, if the wife's 
family were entitled to display Arms upon it. 

There is one other point. Care must always be taken that the whole pronominal coat of your 
wife's father be impaled. ' If he have a double name and a sub-quarterly coat, you must impale the 
whole of the coat which stands for his surnames. Further, by the Scottish law of Arms you do not 
become ipso facto entitled to quarter Arms; you are only entitled to bear the coat which has been 
matriculated to you in Lyon Office. If you want quarterings introduced, you must get a fresh 
matriculation,, and after they are matriculated you cannot drop them without rematriculation ; so 
that, if you go north of the Tweed for your wife, you must be careful to impale everything that has 
been matriculated to her father. Now in England the practice is different. I distinctly say it is 
not illegal ox incorrect in the slightest degree, but at the same time it is considered rather "bad form " 
to impale more than the simple coat which stands for your wife's surname. Your wife's father may 
be entitled to fifty quarterings, but if the name be Smith, you simply impale the Arms of Smith. 

The next point is, what constitutes an heiress ? The heraldic meaning of the word is very 
difTerent from its colloquial usage. Neither land nor money have anything to do with it. An 
heiress in Heraldry need not possess or transmit the value of one brass farthing. What she must 
transmit is the representation of her father or her family. If her father have no sons she is an 
" heiress," or if she have sisters a " co-heiress." If she have brothers she is not an heiress unless 
or until the issue of these brothers has become extinct. If the brothers die leaving no sons, but leaving 
daughters, these daughters become the heiresses and not the sister. If the issue of the brothers even- 
tually becomes absolutely extinct both in the male and female lines, then the sisters (themselves, if alive, 
or if not in their descendants) become the heiresses, even though the extinction may not occur for 
hundreds of years. On marrying an " heiress " or " co-heiress," as I have said, a man is allowed, 
but not required, to place the Arms of her family upon an escutcheon of pretence in the centre 
of his own, and his children are entitled by the English law to take as quarterings the whole of these 
Arms and quarterings which their mother was entitled to transmit, and add them to anything their 
father may have possessed. Occasionally — but very very seldom — a woman may be an heiress 
to her mother but not her father, or vice versa, and in these cases special rules apply. By Scottish 
law, if you inherit quarterings you must get them matriculated to yourself before using them. 
The English law does not make the registering of them compulsory, but apart from the desirability of 
perpetuating evidence, it is always advisable to submit your claim to the officers of the College, and 
get your right adjudicated upoti and recorded and allowed before assuming quarterings ; so very 
often some or all require careful investigation, and, speaking advisedly, so few people, even amongst 
those who have made a study of Armory, know how to marshal them correctly. 

But two points I would draw special attention to are these : No woman is an heiress until the 
death of her father. There is always the possibility of his marrying again and having sons, so that 
until your father-in-law is dead you are only at liberty to " impale." 

* This is another heraldic fiction. You are, always supposed to look at a shield from behind, so that the dexter half 
is really the half upon your left-hand side, as you look at a shield in the ordinary way. 



xi-v CI)c 3t)U0e of arms 

You do not necessarily quarter your mother's Arms. Find out if she be an heiress. And even 
if your mother be an heiress, and her mother an heiress as well, you cannot quarter the Arms of your 
grandmother's family until you have proved that your mother's father was also entitled to Arms. 
One faulty coat invalidates everything that comes after it. So that, before you draw up wonderful 
schemes of quarterings, find out if all the coats will hold water. Quarterings seem to be an especial 
weakness of some people. I had a claim to nearly loo sent up to me not long ago along with 
a claim to a dormant Baronetcy. Even the very first coat could not be substantiated. But some 
families are undoubtedly entitled to a very great number. A family of Lloyd have proved 102, and 
Sir Lambton Loraine's children will have very nearly as many, and I fancy so would Sir Humphrey 
de Trafford if he went to the trouble of proving them. I am told that the Duke of Northumberland 
is entitled to over 500, but I doubt it. Anyhow, at the Heralds' College, I believe, the record is 
held by the Lane- Fox family, who have proved and recorded 136. 

Now a word or two about crests. At the publication of my edition of " Fairbairn's Book of 
Crests," one of my reviewers gave himself away at the very commencement of a long and very 
appreciative review, by the remark that the book " would commend itself to those who, whilst not 
aspiring to the dignity of a coat-of-arms, rightly thought themselves entitled to something more 
than a mere monogram, and so laid claim to possessing a crest." With all due deference to the 
aforesaid gentleman, such an idea is utterly wrong. At the present moment, though there is 
many a coat without a crest, I believe I am correct in saying, there is not a single crest legally in 
existence that is not part of a complete achievement. I am afraid the abominable advertisement so 
familiar to our eyes, " What is your crest and what is your motto ? " &c., is much to blame for this 
very erroneous idea. At the beginning of Armory the crest was an extra distinction — much the 
same as supporters are at the present day — and the old Heraldry books allude to a time when none 
below the rank of a knight were entitled to display a crest. Consequently many of the' really old 
coats have no crest belonging thereto, and it can generally be shown that amongst ancient families 
the crest is of more recent date than the Arms. One exception, and only one, have I come across, 
and, though I have mentioned the matter to several Officers of Arms, I can learn of no other. 
This is the Buck-worth crest — one of the two belonging to Sir Charles Buckworth-Herne-Soame, 
Baronet. The Arms were exhibited at the time of the Visitations, and though the crest was passed 
the Arms were not, but the Arms were rectified at a later date. That is the only case I know. 

So may I impress the fact that you cannot have a crest unless you are legally entitled to a coat- 
of-arms. 

Another abuse with regard to crests is the promiscuous bearing of two, three, four, or five crestSi 
I have never seen more than five in England. The law in the United Kingdom is that you can, in 
the ordinary matter of course, only possess one. Probably the abuse has crept in with the craze for 
double surnames. If you obtain a Royal License to bear a double or treble surname, you probably 
acquire the right — but such right only in accordance with the terms of the Royal License — to bear 
one crest for each surname ; or even if you change your name, and yet obtain permission to quarter 
the Arms for the new and the old surname, you would be entitled to two ; but if your Royal License 
distinctly state that you shall bear the new name and Arms "in lieu of" the old one, then you have 
only the right to the one. If you want the two, you should take care the terms of the petition make 
provision for that. The late Duke of Buckingham and Chandos had five, but he had five surnames 
(Temple-Nugent-Brydges-Chandos-Grenville) ; and I know of no greater number legitimately used in the 
United Kingdom. 

Of course, there are exceptions. When a family obtain a grant of Arms, and then subsequently 
prove their right to an older grant, they become entitled to both coats and both crests ; but this does 
not apply to two or three matriculations in Scotland. The last matriculation supersedes everything 
of a previous date. 

Duplicate crests often occur through one being a crest of augmentation, as in the cases of Lord 
Combermere, Lord Gough, Lord Nelson, and many others. There are some few instances where 
additional crests have been granted without being crests of augmentation ; but this is very exceptiotial. 
Lord Garvagh, Lord Bute, and Lord Camden are cases I can call to mind. 

One of the funniest mistakes with regard to a crest that I have ever seen is made by Lord Cal- 
thorpe. In an edition — long years ago — of "Burke's Peerage" (I think), by some compositor's 
error, the blazon of the crest and the supporters got jumbled up and mixed. Lord Calthorpe, whose 
surname is Gough- Calthorpe, has two crests — i. a boar's head couped below the neck azure (for 
Calthorpe) ; 2. a boar's head couped close argent, pierced through the cheek with a broken spear 
gules (for Gough). There is not at the present time a single one of the " Peerages " which quotes 
his crests correctly. Foster blazons the one and illustrates the other. Burke only gives the Calthorpe 
crest. Lodge gives something very wonderful. In the bygone edition of Burke, to which I have 
alluded, the crest was given : " A boar's head and supporters, two savages wreathed about the loins 
and each holding in the exterior hand a club proper." These supporters are, of course, simply the 
proper supporters for his coat-of-arms, and appertaining to his "Peerage;" yet, through this com- 



Ctie atjuse of armg xv 

positor's blunder, Lodge gives and illustrates this as his Lordship's crest. The last Lord Calthorpe 
had it as his crest upon his seal, with the two supporters standing upon the wreath, and it was so 
engraved upon the brass erected to his memory. And upon the present Baron Calthorpe's brougham 
appear under his coronet — i. the Gough crest (as I have quoted it); 2. this hybrid mixture. 1 
confess I personally have no great objection to seeing a crest placed upon a wreath, and without a 
helmet ; but of late an idea seems to have gained currency, and certainly with a good deal of reason, 
that as the crest is purely an ornament to surmount the helmet, it is unwarranted or even wrong to 
separate them or to depict a crest alone. That is one of these " nice " points capable of a good deal 
of argument ; but a book-plate in my possession shows a Knight's helmet (of degree) in the fesse point 
of the escutcheon. I confess to having been much amused by a brougham I have frequently seen of 
late. The said brougham, which from its striped appearance is easily recognised, has for its Armorial 
decoration a helmet and a crest ; but for some utterly inscrutable reason these are detached, and are 
placed side by side. But, as a curiosity, I can beat even this. I saw a carriage in the Park recently, 
which, from the monogram of the letters T. G., and the shield bearing "three escallops on a chief" 
(I forget the tinctures employed), I presume belongs to somebody of the name of Graham. The 
peculiarity in this case consisted of the fact that the said monogram was placed, in the manner and 
after the fashion of a crest, upon a wreath above the escutcheon. 

Another point with regard to crests that is plainly an abuse is the encircling of them (and coats- 
of-arms as well for the matter of that) with Garters, or with ribbons, whether bearing mottoes or not. 
This is a privilege confined, and very strictly, to Knights of the various Orders, it not even being 
conceded to Companions. Consequently an ordinary individual is very wrong in adorning his 
achievement in this manner. Even if the motto upon the Garter be changed, it can only be said to 
slightly lessen the offence. Yet there are several families legitimately possessing mottoes employed 
by one or other of the Orders. 

And, as to another little weakness, if your crest should legally be borne upon a wreath, for 
goodness' sake don't place it upon a chapeau, or issuing from a coronet. 

In England the College of Arms disclaim all jurisdiction over mottoes. If it is wished, any 
motto, to which no objection offers, is painted below the emblazonment in the margin of a Patent, 
but, save in rare instances, it is not mentioned in the wording, and forms no part of the grant, and 
it is a comparatively modern innovation for it to be inserted even in the painting ; so that the rule 
for those people who come within the jurisdiction of the Heralds' College is this, that unless the 
motto is specially mentioned in the wording of the Patent, or unless it be charged upon the shield 
itself, or in some way attached to and forming a constituent part of the crest, any motto may be 
assumed, altered, or discarded at the pleasure of the wearer. As far as the laws of the College are 
concerned, you can quote a psalm or a scene out of Shakespeare in your escroU if it so please you. 
And you are at liberty to place your motto where you like, — ^above your crest, below the arms, or in 
any other position in which you can find room for it, though custom appears to rule that it shall 
find its place under the shield. In Scotland the law is diametrically the opposite. The mottoes 
are always mentioned in the Patents of grant or matriculation, and are unchangeable ; and more- 
over their position is stated, and must be adhered to. It is usually over the crest. Book-plate 
designers might take a note of this fact. In Ireland the position is about half way between these 
two extremes, inasmuch as if a motto be recorded with your coat you are expected to make use of 
that particular one. 

As to supporters, though there is a good deal of abuse concerning their usage, there is no 
definite rule that can be laid down. Ulster and Lyon Kings have absolute power to grant supporters 
to whomsoever they will. But little advantage has been taken of this power in Ireland, and practi- 
cally the same rules hold good as obtain in England. Moreover, the present Lyon King of Arms, I 
believe, considers it well to keep within these same bounds in the case of new grants. But former 
Lyons thought nothing of the kind, and granted them to all and sundry who would pay the fees, and 
some number of EngUsh Baronets went to the trouble and expense of obtaining grants of supporters 
in Lyon Office. These grants, of course, were ultra vires. All chiefs of clans and heads of families 
claimed the right, and it was usually conceded to them if they cared to pay ; so that north of the 
Tweed the only rule that can be quoted is that no one is entitled to them unless they are matriculated 
in Lyon Office, and the larger half of them are not. I hope before long to publish a list of those 
who are. 

In England the law is very straightforward. Only those people to whom they have been 
granted — and their successors or not, according to the limitations of the Patent — are entitled to 
make use of them. And such grants are only issued to Peers, Knights of the Garter, Thistle, and 
St. Patrick,* and Knights Grand Cross of the other Orders, unless the grant be made as an 
augmentation or otherwise, pursuant to a warrant from the Sovereign. Supporters granted to a 

* For a long time these Orders have been confined to Peers, and the Garter to those of the rank of Earl and 
upwards ; but formerly, when they were open to commoners, they carried the privilege of the right to obtain supporters, 
as did the Order of the Bath before it was divided into classes.

Peer usually are limited to those upon whom the title shall descend, likewise those granted by 
Royal Warrant to Baronets, e.g., Guise, Otway, Guinness. Supporters granted to a Knight Grand 
Cross are personal to himself. And I would point out that supporters granted to a Knight Grand 
Cross who is subsequently created a Peer, do not descend with the Peerage, unless a new grant 
with extended limitation be issued ; and to my knowledge more than twenty Peers and Baronets have 
not the ghost of a right to the supporters they display. And there are a good many Knights Grand 
Cross who use supporters without having obtained the right — in other words, have simply invented 
them for themselves. 

Another point is that it is utterly illegal for heirs-apparent to Peerages, even though bearing 
courtesy titles, to assume either a coronet or supporters, and yet nearly every one of them do. Take 
up Debrett's " House of Commons " and just glance through it. 

Supporters are conceded to those members bearing the courtesy titles of — 

Lord Willoughby D'Eresby. Lord Curzon. Lord Granby. 

' ■ Lord Wolmer. Lord Compton. Lord Newark. 

Lord Folkestone. Lord Chelsea. Lord Stanley, and also to 

Lord Elcho. Lord Carmarthen. The Right Honourable David 

Lord Cranborne. Lord Burghley. Plunkett. 

But surely matters have come to the last stage of ridicule when the paternal supporters are credited to 
Lord Frederick Hamilton. Lord George Hamilton, and Lord Randolph Spencer-Churchill. 

I wonder if the next departure of Debrett will be to hand Lord Taunton's on to Mr. Labouchere, 
or Lord Beaconsfield's to Mr. Coningsby D'Israeli. And I would commend to the notice of all 
offenders on this point the clauses in the Patents confining the right to use the supporters to " those 
upon whom the Peerage shall descend." 

No Peeress, after a second marriage, is entitled to continue to use the coronet and supporters 
of her first husband, and in fact any woman, after a second marriage, has entirely forfeited her 
privilege of using anything Armorial pertaining to her first marriage. 

Every week sees mural tablets erected with Arms wrongly emblazoned, with quarterings wrongly 
marshalled, often the whole achievement utterly unauthorised, and these remain, and are intended to 
remain, lasting memorials — to the unwary — of the glory and fancied relationships of the person com- 
memorated, but to the wary of his bogus pretensions. A well-known Member of Parliament, speaking 
to me upon the subject, put forward an argument why he should continue to use the Arms he was 
doing, and not drop them, as I recommended. He bears the name, with a different spelling, of one 
of the oldest if not the oldest family in England, and used their Arms without the pretence of a 
difference. He has been at some trouble in buying property which at one time or another has be- 
longed to members of that family ; but he has not a shred of evidence beyond his name to put forward 
towards a descent from them. His generosity is well known, but it was in no spirit of boastfulness 
that he told me that he had helped to restore and given stained glass windows to thirty different churches, 
and that every window bore in some manner or other the coat he had been using. Now, living on 
and owning the same land, bearing the same Arms, having the same name, will not the genealogists 
and antiquarians of the future naturally fall into the error that he belonged to the old family ? But 
they will search in vain for the relationship. 

A prominent gentleman in his profession, who in Westminster is said to have been knighted by 
mistake, at the present time decorates his note-paper with an ancient and historic crest. If he had 
a legitimate right to it he would at the present time be sitting and voting in the House of Lords as 
Baron , but that is telling. There are not many Peers who have borne his surname. 

One would think lawyers would have some inkling of the requirements of the law, and it is no 
stretch of fancy to imagine that, ere they had attained to the dignity of the Bench, they would cause 
some investigation to be made with regard to their Arms, and before having them inserted in Debrett's 
"Judicial Guide." Very few, comparatively speaking, are genuine. It seems almost hopeless to 
expect the laws of Arms to be conformed to, or the rights of other people to be respected, when so 
many prominent people, whose social position is undoubted, openly break every law in existence. 
In "Debrett" of 1893 I fancy there was a coat-of-arms given for every Peer and every person styling 
himself a Baronet. For the purposes of this book, I have had the whole of the coats in the Peerages 
examined and admitted or rejected. I knew there were a few sinners inside as well as outside those 
" charmed " and fascinating covers, but, even with the knowledge I have of the extent to which Arms 
are a;bused, I must admit I was myself astonished at the result of my inquiries. In addition to those 
having no right to supporters, twenty-two Peers, over thirty Baronets, and to my knowledge nearly 
fifty Knights, have no right whatsoever to the Arms they bear. 

I have by no means examined, at the moment this goes to the press, all the coats-of-arms given 
in the "House of Commons" and "Landed Gentry," but I have a pretty extensive list to my hand. 



Cfte 3l)U0e of 3tms xvii 

They say a Radical dearly loves a lord, and he most assuredly has the same affection for a coat-of- 
arms. Even Mr. Labouchere makes use of one, but this he is legally entitled to do. It is difficult 
to speak with absolute certainty when no pedigrees are available, but I have a pretty extensive list at 
hand of Members who are using Arms, and, as far as I can ascertain, without having established any 
authority for them. And I know my list is incomplete. 

And there is another class of offenders, those who undoubtedly have the right to bear Arms 
but yet prefer to use some other coat, usually one much more illustrious. 

In this way Sir Anthony Weldon, if he chose to take the trouble, could easily, I believe, 
establish his descent from an Armigerous family in Ireland ; but this he prefers to overlook in order 
that he may claim a descent he cannot establish from the family of Weldon of Swanscombe, in the 
county of Kent, one of whom had an augmentation granted him as a special mark of favour by Her 
Majesty Queen Elizabeth. The Arms one sees occasionally are amusing. So far I have not come 
across any case of a person claiming the Royal Arms as his, but a book-plate was sent me not long 
ago in which the Royal Arms of France were quartered first and fourth with the Royal coat of Scot- 
land second and third. This belonged to a person of the name of Metge, and the Royal "dolphin" 
was one of the crests. 

The Yankee on the subject of Coat-Armour is proverbial. Cussans tells a tale in his " Hand- 
book of Heraldry" which is decidedly amusing. During the residence of our Ambassador, Mr. 
Crampton, in Washington, a carriage which he brought from England was sent to a carriage-builder's 
to be repaired. Some time afterwards, on Mr. Crampton going to the factory, he was surprised to 
see several buggies, sulkies, and wagons each bearing his AJrms. In astonishment he turned to the 
attendant and, directing his notice to the carriages in question, inquired if they were built for him. 
" I reckon not, sir," was the reply ; " you see when your carriage was here some of our citizens 
admired the pattern of your Arms, and concluded to have them painted on their carriages too ! " 
But if a tale which was once told to me be correct, I think I can go even one better than that. 

A Yankee — or perhaps I should say an American, for that is all that can be guaranteed — called 
one day at a noted coachbuilder's. At the time of his visit a state carriage of the Diike of St. 
Alban's happened to be there for some trifling repairs, and the " stranger " admired it greatly, and 
particularly its heraldic adornments. He asked whose it was, and was told. "And is that his 
coat-of-arms ? " " Yes." He " reckoned it was mighty fine," and left. And the end of the story 
is that, until quite recently, a carriage was to be seen occasionally in New York with the coat, crest, 
coronet, supporters, and Garter of the Duke, and with the " biton sinister " and all. But what can 
you expect of a country where nobody can say definitely what the National Arms are really intended 
to be, and where they are popularly supposed to be governed by a clause with a "shifting limitation " 
of blazon ? 

A coat-of-arms reached me not long ago which, from certain peculiarities, I at once recognised 
as a modern grant. Over all appeared the undoubted mark of illegitimacy. The coat was only 
granted in 1843 to some one to whom a Royal License had been issued to take the same name as 
that of my correspondent, who had been thus guilelessly labelling himself a bastard. Not the least 
relationship existed. I have yet to learn where he picked up the Arras. 

This is a good example towards my argument all along, which is to make sure you are really 
entitled to the Arms you carry. 

Perhaps some people sin through ignorance ; but I know many people are perfectly well aware 
of what they are doing, and one can but suppose they simply trust to the general ignorance of the 
subject to escape detection. But having regard to those who are sinning through lack of knowledge, 
it is a pertinent inquiry as to how they have drifted into the ranks of the offenders. The first people 
to get blamed by the outer world are, of course, the official heralds. People like " Guy le Vieux " 
{vide letters in the Globe), probably simply because their own Arms have failed to pass muster, go 
about seeking whose credulity they may devour, and loudly proclaiming that the King, who is above 
the Heralds' College, granted Arms which are not recorded there; or that the heralds at their 
visitations omitted to record this coat or the other coat. And you may, as I have done, hear tales 
about families who have continuously since the twelfth century borne Arms which have never been 
recorded in the College of Atrms.~__Itjs^ of course, impossible to say that any hypothetical case 
cannot exist, but I have never known one pfoved ; nor can I come across any one having the least 
real knowledge of Heraldry who believed in these tales ; for they all, when examined, prove to be a 
tissue of impossibilities, improbabilities, and untruths. It is just possible one or two isolated cases 
of the kind might exist in the Channel Islands, and undoubtedly unregistered Arms have for a long 
time been borne in some cases in Scotland and Ireland, but the law of the land — not any law of the 
Offices of Arms — has distinctly declared these to be illegal, and that puts an end to any argument. 
But as to England proper, one can be very safe in saying that no such cases exist. One often hears 
the remark, " Oh, but anybody can have a coat-of-arms by paying for it." A more mistaken idea 
could not exist, as a good many people might find on petitioning the Earl Marshal for a grant. But, 
though I have heard this remark often, I have never once heard it come from the lips of any one 



xviii Cfie abuse of arms 

who was undoubtedly Armigerous, either of new or old gentility. Consequently, if other people may 
judge from my experience, whenever that remark is made you can be pretty certain of — well, the 
deduction is fairly obvious. 

A gentleman with whom I have come in contact has shown me a seal which was engraved for 
him for some very small sum. When he was quite a boy he was persuaded by some itinerant vendor 
who carried a small book of illustrations in his pocket, and went the round of commercial ofSces, 
that that was the crest he was entitled to use. That is certainly one way of supplying Armorial 
hankerings. And jewellers and seal-engravers carefully foster the very erroneous idea that all people 
of the same name are entitled to the same Arms. Because your name be Smith you are not neces- 
sarily a relative of Lord Carrington, nor is every Mr. Jones a relative of the late Lord Ranelagh. 
Because your mother's name was Howard, you need not as a matter of course be a relative of the 
Duke of Norfolk, and entitled to quarter his coat with his augmentation ; neither is every person 
rejoicing in the name of Robinson at liberty to take and use Lord Rokeby's coat-of-arms. Arms 
belong to the grantee and his descendants, and such others as may be mentioned in the Patent, 
and not to everybody else of his name in the world. 

It is the fashion just at present to abuse the late Sir Bernard Burke's publications. They might 
have been a little more accurate certainly, but I don't think they have done quite the harm that some 
people would debit them with, and they have certainly done a great deal of good by keeping alive the 
interest in long descent, and it is still accounted " something " to have one's family included in the 
"Landed Gentry." 

But the real harm lies with these advertising heraldic shopkeepers. The general public think 
that a search with them is precisely the same as a search through the official records. All these shop- 
keepers do is to take down Burke's " General Armory," and, if your name be a common one, pick 
out the one amongst the different coats which is located nearest to the address you gave of your 
earliest known ancestor. One of this shopkeeping fraternity, on being applied to for a " correct coat," 
with a good deal of ingenuousness replied to his correspondent that there were several different coats 
for his name, and he could take his choice. One that was indicated seemed to be the oldest, and he 
advised that. A certain well-known character had a presentation made to him, and an almost equally 
well-known purveyor was asked to supply a coat-of-arms to occupy a prominent position upon the gift. 
I may as well say at once that the coat and crest he supplied did not belong to each other, and 
neither belonged to the gentleman in question, or ever had belonged to anybody of his name. But that 
appears to have been merely a detail. Some rather strong remarks I had made upon the use of the coat 
came to the ears of its purveyor, and one day a tall, middle-aged military-looking personage walked 
into my room, and placed a card upon the table. It was very dirty, which may have been the reason 
the individual took it away with him again when he left. It bore the name of the noted heraldic 
purveyor in question ; and during our interview my visitor spoke vigorously with regard to what had 
been said. The Arms over which the dispute had arisen, according to the first account I heard, were 
erected upon a brass in a certain church in a small village in Derbyshire, which bore a date in the 
seventeenth century. A solicitor's letter, threatening a libel action, was the next act in the farce ; 
but I had meanwhile taken the trouble of writing to the clergyman of the church mentioned. He 
assured me there was no such brass in existence, the church mentioned having been only built about 
twenty years ago. I pointed this out to the purveyor, and he promptly gave another origin for the 
coat, which was quite as ridiculous, namely, that it had been recorded in his books for some con- 
siderable length of time. 

In my preface to the revised edition of " Fairbairn," I said : " There is no such thing as the 
' prescriptive right to Arms,' as to which one heraldic shopkeeper with whom I have come in contact 
talks glibly ; it exists solely in his conversation. Others of his persuasion have other little plausibilities 
equally corrupt which they bring into prominence. And it is a fairly safe plan to pursue to reject as 
bogus all Arms and crests which boast no other origin than the heraldic stationer, who, for a trifling 
fee, professes, on receipt of ' name and county,' to find Armorial Bearings for any applicant. During 
the revision of this volume, I have had a very great number of ' certificates ' from such places sent 
up to me for insertion. To my own mind that alone was sufficient evidence against their authen- 
ticity ; but for fear they might be right, I have had each one formally examined as it reached me by 
the proper authorities, and in no solitary instance have the Arras of right pertained to those one was 
led to believe from the certificate were the possessors, and in most cases the Arms themselves, apart 
from the question of ownership, were wrong in detail or some technicality." 

In the two years which have elapsed since the book was published, I have had no reason what- 
soever to in any way alter this opinion. 

The majority of these certificates nearly all come from the same purveyor I refer to above. He 
is evidently not ashamed of his profession, for he stamps his name upon the back with an india-rubber 
stamp. I am always much amused when these paintings reach me with this name carefully scratched 
out. But the handwriting I can always recognise. 

" It has been asserted that ' he who careth not whence he come careth not whither he goeth.' 



CJ)e 3t)U0e of 3rms xix 

This is rather a bold statement to put forth, and, like many other trite aphorisms, one probably in 
which truth and strict propriety are sacriiiced to epigrammatic force. Be this as it may, indifference 
as to the origin of their family is really felt by few, for the pride of ancestry seems to be innate in 
nearly every one ; those only affect to despise it who are ignorant of their descent, and can lay claim 
to no hereditary insignia of honour, practically expressing the sentiment of Montaigne, ' If we cannot 
attain to greatness ourselves, let us have our revenge by railing at it in others.'" 

But the age we live in would have us learn, or else accept from its lips as an incontrovertible fact, 
that all men are equal. The parsons tell us so from the pulpit; the newspapers flaunt it before our 
eyes ; it is shouted from the housetops ; it is screamed aloud in Hyde Park. It is a wild inaccuracy, 
a chimerical ideal if you like ; but for all that, an utter falsehood, magnificent alone in its conception 
and extent. There always has been, and there always will be, an aristocracy of some sort in this 
world — and mayhap there will be in the next. 

But on this earth there must be an aristocracy. The alternatives are few, of birth, of riches, of 
intellect, or of physique ; and the two last are summed up in the first. The aristocracy of physique 
is the origin of the aristocracy of birth, and the aristocracy of intellect is its outcome. It is no rash 
statement. 

The University Racing Crews are the summit of the perfection of their moment, and the " 'Varsity 
teams " can give points to others, even though the former are amateurs ; the poets and artists, by a 
striking majority, come from the upper classes ; and the statesmen who have governed England and 
Europe have not been drawn from the working millions ; the men who have built up this Empire of 
ours have come from the patricians ; and those who have pulled down la belle France are her ple- 
beians. And the aristocracy of physique is still that of birth, as is the aristocracy of beauty. There 
is a certain Duchess, a certain Marchioness, and a certain Countess whose photographs can any day 
be seen in the shop-windows. Put them side by side with any professional beauty you can think of, 
and your task of comparison is easy enough, for there can hardly be much comparison. Take a 
dozen men at random, about whose birth there can be no question, and " pick " a dozen men from 
a Tower Hill " equality meeting " — let Poole and Truefit have carte-blanche with the latter — and the 
difference between the two sets will still be apparent. 

There may be brilliant exceptions : a plebeian may be better educated, handsomer, better built, 
far cleverer, and yet he will lack something his patrician rival possesses, something he would give 
all his other qualities for ; he lacks the cachet of birth. 

And out of these very exceptions can be brought another argument. Heredity ofttimes " harks 
back," and the odds are great that this exception can be proved, if the facts can only be ascertained, 
to possess (even though it be but left-handedly) some patrician ancestor. 

And for the moment only conceding the popularly accepted definition of the word, what is the 
percentage of " gentlemen " who figure in the lists of the criminal ? 

Money will do much, and the nineteenth century is lamented by some as being governed by an 
aristocracy of wealth. But money cannot purchase real ancestry, which is still the only entree to some 
doors, the only passport to some coveted ends. You will hear the Socialist, "standing afar off" 
(who will not lift up so much as his eyes unto the unattainable), say he sets no store thereon. We 
none of us covet the moon ; we know we cannot have it. But help him to set his foot firmly on the 
first rung of the social ladder, and then watch his rise and his concurrently ascending desires and 
ambitions — Tradesman, Churchwarden, Guardian of the Poor, Town Councillor, Alderman, Member 
of Parliament, and Knight Bachelor, and then he or his wife will fish as eagerly as any one else for 
invitations to aristocratic houses. Strange, is it not, how opportunities alter opinions. 

But aristocracy in England has of reality been of birth since man knoweth not when. Many 
systems of enumeration produce a multitude of terms to suit their requirements ; but until the passing 
of the Solicitors' Act there was one plain line of demarcation, and even yet it is accounted something 
to be a " gentleman." But no word has ever been more abused, no word is less understood. 

No doubt the confusion between the words "gentlemanly" and "gentlemanlike" and the title 
" gentleman " is at the bottom of it, and the abuse of the word " Esquire " has helped. But when the 
idea " that kind hearts are more than coronets " is rammed down one's throat, the ideal of the gentle- 
man must suffer. We teach boys their manners, and exhort them to be gentlemen, when they have 
nothing to do with it. They are or are not gentlemen already. If they are not, the most that can be 
done is to teach them to be men, and gentlemanlike ; if they are, show them how and why and in 
what way they are better than others, teach them that they are — as they are — of another caste — and 
then, noblesse oblige. 

And I would remind those with the sneer ready to their lips that Arms are a mere matter of 
payment of fees, that it is not so, and, moreover, that there are degrees of gentility. A grant of 
Arms, which is a concession of grace by the Sovereign, is a Patent of Gentility from the Crown, 
from which is all honour, and the fees which have to be paid are not the price of it to you, but are the 
cost to the Crown of the concession which is made to you, and which cost you are required to defray. 

The right to coat-armour is the proof of gentility. The grantee of Arms is simply a gentleman 



XX 



Cfie a&U0e of arms 



by Patent, as the first holder of the lesser nobility of that creation in precisely the same manner as 
the first Peer is a Peer by Patent, and the first holder of the greater nobility of his creation. But the 
anomaly in England is that a Peer need not necessarily be a gentleman, and some are not. 

The Crown only can take away a man's gentility, and in the ordinary way a man can forfeit 
it by nothing he does, though the remark was true that " it is a pity some gentletnen are such 
blackguards." 

The right to the title of "gentleman" as yet is not provided gratis in the Board Schools; it is 
still a privilege to acquire it by the concession of the Crown. Everybody cannot be of ancient 
lineage and high degree, we are not all of us of " the caste of Vere de Vere," but granted a certain 
amount of education and refinement, the desire to rank and be considered as "gentle" is almost 
universal. Therefore let no unauthorised pretence be made by the usurpation of the signs of another's 
gentility. The start must be made some time, and if you have the misfortune to have been your- 
self born ignoMlis, make the effort that your sons shall be gentlemen, your grandsons gentlemen 
of birth, your great-grandsons gentlemen of ancestry, and your great-great-grandsons gentlemen 
of blood. 

The Continental test of the perfection of blood — the proof of " Seize quartiers " — has never been 
required in England, and though many glibly boast of it, but few indeed can prove it. It has riothing 
to do with the quarterings you bear, and the fact of the proof thereof by the father does not consti- 
tute the right of the son. In England men mate with whom they will, and a woman even socially is 
accepted as of her husband's rank, unless the discrepancy be too egregious and apparent ; and this 
is the English stumbling-block to proofs of " Seize quartiers." 

To establish a proof of this you must show that all your sixteen great-great-grandparents were 
legally entitled to bear Arms. In other words, you must show this right to have existed for

And then we turn to the abuse of the word " Esquire." It has been termed by one writer as a 
description of a state {e.g., widow and widowhood), and not a title. But whichever it is matters littje, 
for the right to the affix of Esquire is clearly defined. Neither usage and custom nor use and abuse can 
now alter the legal right to this description. There have, in times past, been other qualifications 
(for instance, anciently Esquires were created by Patent) which have become obsolete, but by the 
qualifications still existing Esquires are these — 

The sons of Peers. 

The sons of Baronets. 

The sons of Knights. 

The eldest sons of the younger sons of Peers, and their eldest sons in perpetuity. 

The eldest son of the eldest son of a Knight, and his eldest son in perpetuity. 

The Kings of Arms. 

The Heralds of Arms. 

Officers of the Army and Navy of the rank of Captain and upwards. 

Sheriffs of Counties, for Life. 

J.P.'s of Counties whilst in Commission. 

Serjeants-at-Law. 

Queen's Counsel. 

Serjeants-at-Arms. 



Cfte atjuse oC arms xxi 

Companions of the Orders of Knighthood. 

Certain principal Officers in the Queen's Household. 

Deputy-Lieutenants. 

Commissioners of the Court of Bankruptcy. 

Masters of the Supreme Court. 

Those whom the Queen, in any Commission or Warrant, styles Esquire [and 

amongst these are Royal Academicians], and any person who, in virtue 

of his Office, takes precedence of Esquires. 

Graduates of universities, as such, are not Esquires, and barristers-at-law, as such, are not Esquires. 
They are not even Gentlemen, which all solicitors are " by Act of Parliament." A judge once ruled 
certain documents " out of order " because a barrister was not described therein as an Esquire, and 
this is continually being quoted to me as " proof-positive '' that they are so. But he might just as well 
have said that all barristers must be described as Earls or as Dukes. Such a remark would be no 
more ultra vires than the one actually made was. 

Touching the subject of liveries, I say frankly at once that there is no law, heraldic or otherwise, 
to govern their choice or design. But, in the absence of any law, a very definite usage has sprung up, 
so universal and long-established in its character, and so generally recognised, that I may doubtless 
be pardoned if I draw attention to it. 

This custom is that the colours of the livery shall be determined by the tinctures of the wreath 
— in other words, by the principal colour and the principal metal occurring in the coat-of-arms, which 
are known as the livery colours. In all Scottish Patents the phrase will be found, " and upon a 
wreath of his liveries is set for a crest," &c. The exceptions are so few that the rule may be briefly 
understood by saying that these must be the first metal and the first colour which occur in the official 
blazon. 

Whatever is the field of the coat-of-arms, whether it be colour or metal, determines the pre- 
dominant colour of the livery, thus — 

Sable would give black. Gules would give red. 

Vert ,, green. Or ,, yellow. 

Azure ,, blue. Argent „ white. 

Purpure „ purple or mulberry colour. 

A yellow or a white livery few people in this uncertain climate, and in these days of aesthetic 
colours and half-tones, have the courage to make use of save for State or full-dress occasions, and for 
ordinary usage dark drab for the former or light drab for the latter are generally used in their stead. 

Scarlet is the Royal livery, and is barred to all others (with the exception of the few who are 
privileged to make use of the royal stables, and, I believe, of the Duke of Norfolk as hereditary Earl 
Marshal), consequently, if the field of your Arms be gules (i.e., scarlet), your red for livery purposes 
must be claret colour or chocolate colour. If your livery be black, you have but little opportunity 
for personal taste in the selection of tint, but with blue and green you may choose a shade as brilliant 
or as retiring as seems good to your own particular taste. 

The second colour governs that of the facings, and in the matter of facings yellow and white for 
gold and silver and scarlet keep their original colours. And it is in the matter of facings that the 
opportunity occurs for " taste " and ingenuity. The great majority of people for undress purposes 
make the collars and cufis of the second tincture, or " pipe " the garments with that colour. The 
waistcoat for undress purposes is usually of a material of narrow stripes of the two colours. A craze 
lately seems to be gaining ground to make use of scarlet waistcoats. This is decidedly an infringe- 
ment of the royal livery, and doubtless arises from the fact that this forms a part of the undress livery 
at Marlborough House. Their Royal Highnesses the Prince and Princess of Wales have to submit 
to a good deal of imitation, but things have passed far beyond the bounds of that " sincerest form of 
flattery " when their liveries are duplicated throughout the land. Their would-be disciples might just 
as well assume the plume of feathers encircled by the coronet of the Prince. If the hatband be 
other than of black it should be of the metal in the wreath. The buttons, if they are of metal, should 
also be governed by the same rule. 

Dress and State liveries, from their less frequent assumption, are not so subject to the vagaries 
of mind of the country or second-class tailor, consequently custom and usage with regard to them 
are fairly regular. The coat is usually in accordance with the field, the facings and ornamentation 
governed by the secondary colour or metal, as are the breeches and occasionally the stockings. The 
garters and shoe-buckles follow the rules I mention above for metal buttons. The waistcoat is some- 
times one and sometimes the other, most frequently being the same as the coat If a third colour 
appear in the Arms, this is sometimes introduced in the facings, and the undress waistcoat is then 
striped of the three ; but I think it undesirable, though it is not incorrect.

The following examples of the liveries which should pertain to the Arms I mention will show 
how the colours are applied : — 

Suppose the Arms to be vert (the field), a saltire argent, the livery would be — 

Undress— Gr&en coat and overcoat, with white collar and cuffs, facings, piping, or white or 
silver braid or lace, silver buttons and hatband, green and white striped waistcoat. 

Dress — Green coat, with silver lace or braid, or white facings — waistcoat the same — white 
breeches and stockings, silver buttons, garters and buckles. 

Suppose the Arms to be or, an eagle displayed sable — 

Undress — Dark drab coat and overcoat, with black collar and cuffs, facings, piping, braid or 
lace, gold buttons and hatband, black and yellow striped waistcoat. 

Dress — Yellow coat and waistcoat, with black lace braid or facings, black breeches and 
stockings, gold buttons, garters and buckles. 

Suppose the Arms to be gules, a lion rampant or — 

Undress. — Claret-colour coat and overcoat, with yellow collar and cuffs, or gold or yellow 
facings, piping, braid or lace, gold buttons and hatband, black and yellow striped waistcoat. 

Dress. — Claret-colour coat and waistcoat, with gold or yellow lace, braid or facings, yellow 
breeches and stockings, gold buttons, garters and buckles. 

If any one, from a lack of heraldic knowledge or any other reason, cares to write to me upon 
the subject, I shall have very great pleasure in pointing out what colours should be made use of in 
the designing of liveries. 

If you have no coat-of-arms, it cannot be said to be wrong to assume any colour you may 
choose ; but it might be pointed out that the colour brown, which seems to be rather a favourite, is 
not approximated to any heraldic tincture. 

With a double name or a quarterly coat you take the colours from the first quarter of your 
Arms, disregarding all others. 

If a fur occurs in one or other of the principal colour and metal of your Arms, you take the 
colour of its ground, thus — 

Ermine is treated as white. Erminites is treated as while. 

Erminois is treated as gold. Pean and ermines is treated as black. 

If the field of your Arms is vair, your livery colours are blue and white, and you are at liberty 
to treat whichever you prefer as the dominant colour. If your field be vair^, you take in the same 
manner the colours of which the fur is composed. 

If the field be of a metal or colour, and the principal charge be vair or vairde, the dominant 
colour of your livery is in accordance with the field, and you take either colour or metal, whichever 
you may want, from the fur. 

If through a change of name you become an accredited representative of a different family, and 
the first quarter in your coat-of-arms is altered, your livery ought certainly to change as well. 

If you have been using a livery and have no desire to alter it, and subsequently obtain a grant 
of Arms, I think it would be found, if the wish were expressed, that in designing the new coat the 
Officers of Arms would, if possible, so arrange it that the old livery continued to be correct. 

The colours of carriages and of the upholstering is simply a matter of taste, and it is nothing 
more than artistic preference and a desire for uniformity — but a very general preference, by the way — 
which makes them in accordance with the liveries. In actual practice the metal of the harness and 
harness ornaments will usually follow the rules which decide the metal of the buttons. There is a 
very pretty custom in vogue at the moment of placing knots of ribbon or coloured leathers at the 
heads of horses. These should, of course, follow the two livery colours. 

From liveries to cockades is no great step, and the abuse of this ornament — for such it assuredly 
is — is greater than the abuse of Arms. As to this, again, there are no laws in existence, but the 
custom which has regulated their usage is much more emphatic and pronounced than in the case of 
liveries, and the observance of which at the same time is more widely recognised and exacted. 

The cockade originated in the " brooch," if I may so term it, or fastening of the old three- 
cornered hats. The black cockade of the present time is generally known as the " black cockade of 
Hanover," and its usage upon the hats of liveried servants dates from about the time of the Hano- 
verian succession. One hears about the white cockade of the Stuarts, but I am inclined to think 
it originated in contradistinction to the black cockade of Hanover, and I fancy has a greater existence 
in poetry and romantic chivalry than it ever had in actual life. It is doubtful if it had anything 
beyond an actual military existence. 

The cockade is purely a fighting badge, so that it is essentially ridiculous for civilians or ladies 
to pretend to it. There are two shapes at present in general usage; the most usual is the one 
surmounted with a fan-shaped ornament. This is the military cockade. The oval shape, without 
the fan, is the naval one. The right to the military cockade is universally conceded to all officers 



C|)e abuse of arms xxiii 

holding commissions in the Army, Militia, or Volunteers ; and, by virtue of their military capacity, to 
Lord-Lieutenants and Deputy-Lieutenants ; and for the same reason, to High Sheriffs during their year 
of office. The right to the naval one is conceded to officers holding commissions in the Navy or 
Royal Naval Reserve. It is a moot point whether ex-officers, when no longer holding their com- 
missions, are still entitled to make use of it. In my opinion, it should be conceded, at any rate, to 
those who receive permission to continue to wear their uniform ; but I cannot substantiate my opinion 
by any authority, or settle the matter one way or the other. 

The royal cockade is circular, and larger and rather different in the form of its construction. 
This shape, in a smaller size, is adopted by many of the royal household for their private purposes, 
and I cannot help thinking that the usage of this shape by such persons, and the usage of cockades 
by ambassadors, are simply a matter of privileged concession to the holder of the office for the 
time being. 

The foreign cockades are of different colours. Cussans enumerates — 



The German 
The Austrian 
The Portuguese . 
The Belgian 
The Spanish 
The Netherlands 



Black and white. 
Black and yellow. 
White and blue. 
Black, yellow, and red. 
Red. 
Orange, 



And I have seen others. 

From the fact that the use of the cockade is conceded to Deputy-Lieutenants — and the list of 
Deputy-Lieutenants includes the great majority of those in a prominent social position — it seems to be 
considered by a large number of people that the placing of the cockade upon the hats of servants is 
nothing more than an indication of such social position on the part of their employers, and conse- 
quently the pretenders to this rank, with common consent, infringe the privilege. It is difficult to 
see what steps can be taken to check the abuse. Certainly a step in the right direction has been 
taken in this book, in which every person is marked whose right to the privilege I believe to be 
undoubted. But it would be most beneficial if an official notice by the Lord Chamberlain were 
inserted in the Gazette, definitely conveying the wishes of the Sovereign, if an expression of them 
could be obtained, as to what classes were entitled to the privilege. 

An opportunity will' occur, though it is to be hoped not for a long time, at the change of the 
dynasty ; for with the accession of His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales the raison d'etre of the 
black cockade of Hanover will no longer exist. If the colour of the cockade were then altered, and 
at the time of the official signification thereof the opportunity were taken of definitely stating to 
whom the new cockade would appertain, attention would be forcibly drawn to the matter, and public 
opinion, having definite knowledge to go upon, would effectually prevent any extensive abuse of the 
privilege The Royal Arms are not hereditary in the generally accepted sense of the word, and no 
one at the present time actually knows what the Royal Arms will be in the next reign ; but there is 
a great deal to be said in favour of then introducing the tinctures " gules and or " into the cockade, 
for these are the " liveries " of England, of Scotland, and (as generally accepted) of Wales. The 
" liveries " of Saxe-Coburg are black and yellow. 

And there is another very objectionable practice which I wish to refer to, and that is the display 
of bogus private Arms in municipal matters, such as invitation cards. State carriages, and presenta- 
tion portraits. It seems a very usual practice to introduce into such matters the personal insignia of 
the Mayor or Aldermen, and it seems to me peculiar, judging by the publicity thereby given to them, 
that it should be the exception rather than the rule that such personal insignia should be of any 
authority. 

The High Sheriffs' banners and seals bring us another crop of unauthorised Arms ; but, of all 
the occasions of the desecration of these marks of dignity and honour, the Lord Mayor's Show in this 
City of London stands unrivalled. 

It is the common boast of a certain City firm of " heraldic purveyors,'' that they have supplied the 
successive Lord Mayors and Sheriffs with Arms for nearly a century. The statement certainly may 
be only a sample of trade " tall-talk," but it might well be true, for it is a fact that but few of these 
officers start their civic display with legitimate Arms. 

It is not a matter of a recognised rule that each City Alderman must of necessity be a scion of 
the nobility, or even of " gentle " descent ; indeed, tradition points to the exact reverse, and that a 
Lord Mayor more frequently " founds " than " terminates " an illustrious house. 

Further, where is the disgrace of coming from a race of forebears who were not Armigerous ? If 
a claim to gentility of birth, either on behalf of oneself or one's descendants, be made by the display 
or Armorial Bearings, they most assuredly ought to be genuine. 

And if Mayors, Lord Mayors, and Aldermen and High Sheriffs desire their Arms to be en tvidence, 



XXIV 



€:^t abuse of arms 



might I suggest that they should ascertain whether or not they have a legitimate right to those to which 
they lay claim ? 

We are proud, in this United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland, of our monarchy, and of 
our three estates of the realm. We are proud of that corner of Westminster where cluster together 
our national Valhalla, hallowed by every glorious and sacred tradition of which tongue can tell, and 
our Houses of Parliament. We are proud even of the buildings themselves. 

It says little for our national consistency ; for in this House, where the laws are made, there is a 
lasting memorial to the contempt in which they are held. There is an open staring infraction, patent 
to everybody who can obtain the enirei to the building, of the laws made in a bygone day, but which 
are still upon our statute-books. 

In some of the painted windows appear escutcheons. There can be no doubt as to what they 
are intended to be, for each coat-of-arms is labelled with the name of the town the Arms of which it 
purports to represent. I have not yet had opportunity of making anything like a complete list of 
the illegal coats and mistakes which have been placed on record for all time to come, but the whole 
any advertising seal-engraver might have been ashamed to stand sponsor to; and no one need 
repeat the criticism that they only purport to be the designs upon the seals, for every solitary one is 
placed upon an escutcheon, and each one is surmounted by a helmet and lambrequin. But I can 
answer that over thirty unauthorised coats are displayed. 

Surely in the national Houses of Parliament at least, if nowhere else, one might have expected 
to find the laws of the realm and the laws of Arms complied with and respected. In these Houses 
of Parliament, where in matters of procedure some of the stereotyped forms of centuries are 
scrupulously adhered to, it must be a matter of surprise that the bogus and illegal assumptions of 
this century should appear side by side with ancient and honourable Arms. In very truth must 
Armory in these latter times have fallen upon evil days. 

Still, what more can one expect? Take up Debrett's " Guide to the House of Commons," and 
glance through its pages. Many of the Members of Parliament have a pictured shield against their 
names. Fully a third of these I know to be wrong, or of no authority. 

It is related of an Irish Member of Parliament, who was applied to by the editor of a 
biographical work for a few particulars about his career, together with a description of his 
"Arms," that he gave a florid and eloquent account of his achievements in life, but added that 
he did not carry "Arms," as he lived in a proclaimed district One wishes a few more of the 
Irish Members would make a similar reply to the editor of " Debrett," for very few of them are 
entitled to their Arms. 

Next to the illegal use of Arms comes the illegal use of titles. Perhaps many people would put 
the latter first. In the first place, no one may accept or use in the United Kingdom any foreign title 
or Order of Knighthood without the express permission and Royal License of Her Majesty ; and 
such a Royal License is very difficult to get with newly created titles. With regard to English titles, 
I will leave the Peerage to the mercies, tender or otherwise, of Mr. Horace Round and the Quarterly 
Review. But to pass to Baronets, it is here that the greatest abuse occurs. When " Foster " issued 
his memorable Peerage and Baronetage, he felt constrained to regard certain pedigrees as at any 
rate requiring further proof or lacking corroboration. I append a list of them. " Turing " has 
since been proved and registered — the insertion of Colleton I think was a mistake — and I fail to 
see what else Sir Reginald Barnewall or Sir Hector Maclean Hay can do to make their claims more 
valid, for their right is proved and recorded in Ulster's Office and Lyon Office respectively. The 
list in chaos is as follows : —

To this, by the help of Dod and Debrett, the following doubtful or unproven cases come to 
swell the list : — 

Burton. Clifton. Stapley. Wasteneys. Knowles. Reade(i64i). Livesey. 

A mere lament will effect but little, and it seems to me that there is a good deal that might be 
done. And the remedy I am about to suggest, which I believe would be effective, would appear at 
the same time to be a sufficient preventive for another evil of which we hear a good deal. In the 
history of most hereditary titles there comes a time when the property which originally endowed the 
title gets separated from it, and the titular dignity becomes but an empty inheritance. And it ceases 
to become a dignity and degenerates to a farce when its holder, as has sometimes happened, has not 
known where to turn for his next meal. Such a state of things, to put it mildly, by no means adds 
to the dignity of the Peerage and Baronetage, inasmuch as a Peer or Baronet can hardly drop out of 
the world completely, as does an ordinary untitled person, when he " knocks under." 

It would be easy to provide against the two evils in future creations. Nowadays the " start" 
of a new family is generally in hard cash, and not by the aid of extensive landed property ; so that it 
would be no hardship to require, prior to the creation of a Baronetcy, that a sufficient quantity of 
consols to produce, say, a fixed income, be purchased and settled inalienably upon the successors 
in the title — the actual money being required to be lodged in the hands of the Crown — the income to 
be paid to such persons as establish their right to the titles. The income should not be fixed at so 
large an amount that the providing of the principal would cripple resources, but should be sufficient to 
prove an ample inducement to go to some trouble to obtain it. If the law provided that the income 
was not paid until the right was established, and that no arrears were to be paid, such income only 
to accrue from the date upon which the succession to the title was certified to have been established, 
then there would be but little delay that would ever occur through non-registration. In the event of 
the title becoming extinct, half the capital to revert to the Crown, the remaining half to be at the 
disposal by will of the final holder. Such an arrangement would very safely and thoroughly provide 
(i) for the succession to future creations being promptly proved and recorded ; (2) that no holder 
of the title during his enjoyment of it was ever in circumstances of pecuniary distress. Any person 
should be allowed to endow his title if he wished, to any amount up to a maximum of double the 
sums mentioned, but any voluntary additions to be absolutely at the disposal by will of the last 
holder of the title. 

With regard to existing creations, such proposals could not in any justice be made compulsory, 
but if the opportunity of voluntarily so endowing their titles were afforded to the present holders, 
some number would be found to take advantage of it. There is a certain pride of race which 
causes men to go to a great deal of trouble in order to perpetuate their families, and few who had it 
in their power to provide without inconvenience the necessary endowment would let the opportunity 
slip. And many would be at some pains to provide an endowment by means of insurance. When- 
ever a Baronet were created a Peer, or when one of the latter got a "step" in the Peerage, the en- 
dowment would be required, and it could be understood that if the " step " became extinct a sufficient 
sum would be retained to create the minimum suitable to any subsidiary title not lapsing with the 
" step." Thus gradually all existing creations would be brought within the fold. There comes a 
time in all families sooner or later when the heir gives healthy promise of making " ducks and 
drakes" of his patrimony as soon as he may come "into his kingdom." Frequently the actual 
responsibility of possession when it comes has a sobering effect, but many a father must have had 
numerous anxious moments as to what will happen after his death. Four out of five would settle 
the matter at once by taking advantage of any legal opportunity of endowing in perpetuity their direct 
line of posterity. Such a feeling would, before a couple of centuries have passed, have been fairly 
certain to have produced endowments for all the genuine titles in existence. And endowments in 
money are open to none of those objections on the score of impoverishment which are so vehe- 
mently urged against estates carrying only a " life-interest " for their holders. 

But holders of the shaky titles now in use would give any such voluntary endowment scheme a 
very wide berth, and these are the very gentlemen whose assumptions it is most desirable to suppress. 
These cases could only be met by requiring any person assuming any title to pay an annual license of 
say j^Soo, unless he could produce a certificate that his pedigree was recorded and his succession to 
the title established, and rendering all editors and publishers of Peerages liable to a fine of perhaps 
;^ioo for each offence, for every uncertified person entered in their lists. 

The details of creation, and the limitations of English, Irish, and United Kingdom Baronetcies, 
are accessible and well known, and there would be no difficulty about these. There probably would 
be a good deal of difficulty, however, over some of the Nova Scotian creations. But in these days, 
when Royal Commissions are getting to resemble the seed of Abraham in multitude, those responsible 
for their initiation might do a great deal worse than to take these titles in hand and agitate for a 
Commission to examine them ; and let their report be final, subject to the prerogative of the Sovereign 
to confirm or re-create such Baronetcies as she may be inclined, which have failed to be established 



xxvi Clje 3t)u0c of 3rms 

before the Commission. And it is also desirable to create some recognised course of procedure for 
establishing the descent of Scottish Peerages. 

In 1840 a number of Baronets assembled under the direction of the late Sir Richard Brown, and 
formed a Committee of the Baronetage of Privileges, wherein were adopted several rather ridiculous 
resolutions, which were never officially recognised by the Sovereign, or by the College of Arms. The 
members of the Committee resolved that all Baronets should take for supporters two arnied knights ; 
for coronet a plain circle of gold with four pearls resting on the edge — which is engrailed — two of 
them appearing in drawings ; and that the helmet should be affrontde and open, guarded with four grilles 
of gold ; and besides these exterior ornaments, that they should surround their escutcheons with a 
collar of SS. They likewise determined to prefix to their title that of " Honourable." These were the 
principal alterations suggested ; but happily they were not generally adopted. This was the wonderful 
Baronets' " Committee of Privileges " about which one hears so much. Had they been more mode- 
rate in their demands, it is said that the Crown would not have been unwilling to meet some of their 
wishes ; but they asked too much, and, as a natural result, got nothing, beyond a considerable amount 
of ridicule. Had they addressed themselves to the reform of the abuses which had already crept into 
the exercise of their recognised privileges, some useful end might have been served ; but the Broun 
Baronetcy happens to be one of those which Foster subsequently considered necessary to place in 
"chaos." 

And now we come to the question as to what can be done to prevent these abuses of the right 
and privilege of bearing Arms, with which I have dealt in the foregoing pages. It is almost hopeless 
to advocate or expect any further convictions and fines under the old laws, which provided such 
heavy penalties for the wrongful usage of Arms ; but still, overlooking these penalties, and without 
any alteration of the law, there is a great deal that might be done. 

First and foremost, if the Inland Revenue authorities were more eager and efficient in the 
discharge of their duties, and in the enforcement and collection of the annual licenses imposed by 
the law, it would make a marvellous difference. And if the payment of the required license were 
more rigorously enforced, the average tradesman's wife might think again before answering a news- 
paper advertisement and placing herself in a tradesman's hands for a guinea box of stationery, and 
perhaps a prudent husband might enforce a little reflection. 

And the wording upon the licenses issued by the Inland Revenue authorities requires consider- 
able alteration. At present it reads — 

No

The italics are mine, and this wording, to put it mildly, is ultra vires. I am not the first to 
point out that as it stands now it is a direct infringement of the personal prerogative of the Sovereign. 
It needs no Act of Parliament to alter it. With all possible deference to the authorities at Somerset 
House, I would suggest the following wording as more legal and less open to abuse : — 

" having paid the sum of one guinea, is hereby admitted 

to have fulfilled the requirements of the Inland Revenue Department, but such payment not to 
be held to have confirmed or conferred any right to the usage of Arms not sanctioned by the duly 
accredited Officers of Arms." 

The Act of Parliament creating the requirement of these licenses reads as follows : — 

" 32 & 33 Vict. : Customs and Inland Revenue Duties: CL 14, sec. 18. On and after the 
first day of January one thousand eight hundred and seventy, there shall be granted, charged, levied

purposes of his office during his year of service, nor for any person who shall by right of office wear 
or use any of the Arms or Insignia of any member of the Royal Family, or of any corporation or

There is some difference between the foregoing and the notice appearing upon the back of the 
return, by which you are invited by the means above mentioned to contribute to the Inland Revenue. 
It is as follows : — 

"ARMORIAL BEARINGS.

The difference is no doubt somewhat explained by the enclosed reply I received to certain 
inquiries upon the matter : — 

1642 E " Inland Revenue, 

,8g, " Somerset House, London, W.C, 

" gtA March 1894. 
" Sir,— In reply to your letter dated the 22nd ultimo, I am instructed by the Board of Inland Revenue to acqua,int 
you that (i) section 19 of the Act 32 and 33 Vict. c. 14 provides that it shall not be necessary for a Corporation virearing 
or using Arms or Insignia to take out a licence. (2) The above exemption for a Corporation is construed by the Board 
as meaning that a licence need not be taken out Ijy any public company for any corporate Armorial Bearings. (3) A 
licence is not (according to a concession allowed by the Board) required by a shopkeeper for Armorial Bearings used in 
connection with matters relating merely to his trade, as on bill-heads, trade labels, &c., or on his shop front ; and this 
regulation applies to the use of the Royal Arms, so far as the Revenue is concerned. But (4) the Board cannot state 
whether or not in any particular case objection arises under the Patent, Designs, and Trade-Marks Act of 1883 to the 
use of the Royal Arms. This point would be determined by the Board of Trade. 

" The Act relating to licences for Armorial Bearings is the 32 and 33 Vict. c. 14. — I am, Sir, your obedient Servant, 

(Signed) " Wm. Rossetti, 

" Asst, Secretary.'" 

Corporations, public companies, and tradesmen are every bit as capable of bearing taxation as 
those of more patrician birth ; and, moreover, it appears to me that the Inland Revenue authorities 
might just as well make up their minds not to collect the tax on wine or cigars when imported by 
a tradesman or public company. If the tax were rigidly enforced in all the cases that the Act 
sanctions, the revenue from this source would be more than doubled, and tradesrhen would be far 
less prone to prostitute the dignity of Arms to the catchpenny artifices of business. As matters 
stand, they have a direct suggestion and inducement for doing so. And it would need no Act of 
Parliament to construct a regulation in the Trade-Mark Registration Department that no coronet 
whatsoever, and no design which can be classed as heraldic, should in future be accepted for registra- 
tion. It is easy to say what is "heraldic" in design: or the regulation might run that no design 
should be placed upon an escutcheon, lozenge, wreath, or chapeau, or in conjunction with any 
coronet, and that no design should consist of any object — commonly classed as heraldic — or any 
such disposition of objects, upon a circle, parallelogram, or oval, that one could be led to suppose 
the design might be considered to be a coat-of-arms. It would not need an Act of Parliament to 
introduce a police regulation that no vehicle should be licensed as a public hackney carriage until 
anything "heraldic" painted upon it or afiSxed thereto were defaced or obliterated. It would only 
need a resolution of the Common Council for it to become a sine qua non that no Armorial Bearings, 
personal or impersonal, should be placed upon any casket or other presentation article ordered by 
the Corporation, or upon any official invitation card or other official publication, until such Arms had 
been sanctioned by the College of Arms. 

And a great deal might be done by Town Clerks and Mayors. It is a positive disgrace that 
many towns are using Arms which are of no authority. It would be very little trouble for each Town 
Clerk or Mayor of the towns which are illegally using Arms to call the attention of the Corporation 
to the fact. I feel certain that in many towns, particularly in Scotland and Ireland, where the fees for 
matriculating or confirming Arms are so trivial, matters have only to be placed before the Corpora- 
tions in the proper light, for immediate steps to be taken to rectify the present illegal state of affairs. 
If after having all the facts before them the Corporations are too parsimonious to move in the matter, 
it should certainly be made known, in order that the effort might subsequently be made by private 
individuals (as it has already been done in a good many cases) to rectify the apathy of the official 
body. For surely in these large towns who are still defaulters— ^.^., Leeds, Swansea, Wolverhamp- 
ton, Cardiff, Newport (Mon.), Crewe, Blackpool, Eastbourne, and Southend — there are enough 
public-spirited people interested in Heraldry to subscribe in small sums the necessary fees, even if 
there be no local magnate willing to make the town a present of its Arms. It would be no bad 
speculation for the local paper in each place to head the subscription list, for it would be amply 
repaid for its trouble by the advertisement and by the cash which would accrue from the sale of 
photographs of the Patent or accurate copies of the official Arms. County Councils in the same 
manner. Of course I am most interested in my own county of Shropshire, and I shall be only too 
delighted to hear from anybody who is inclined to co-operate with me to the end in view. A very 
little effort would produce the required result. The present seal of the Council is very much open 
to criticism. 

One of the most important checks is in the hands of clergymen, and is this. No brass plate or 
mural tablet or tombstone may be erected in a church or churchyard without the consent of the 
clergyman thereof for the time being, nor can any hatchment be hung up upon the walls of the church. 
I am afraid the day of hatchments has come to a sorry end, but still with these where they may be 
used, and with all intra or extra mural monuments, the clergyman can discourage the use of any but 
legal Arms. He would be wise to require the mourners to spend an extra half-guinea to provide a 
certificate from the College or Office of Arms concerned, that the Arms proposed to be erected 
were legally displayed and properly marshalled. 



CI)c 9&use of arms

Architects can do a great deal — particularly with regard to impersonal Arms — by discouraging 
their display unless the coat-of-arms be beyond reproach ; and, where they have reason to, doubt the 
accuracy or validity of personal Insignia, by taking care to avoid affording opportunities for the 
display of such. 

Were it not almost hopeless to expect an effort from such quarters, it needs very little thought 
to see how much might be done by tradespeople— jewellers, stationers, painters, coachbuilders, 
seal-engravers, die-sinkers, stained glass manufacturers, monumental masons, and others. I question 
if the tradesman exists who would refuse an order rather than employ in his design a bogus coat 
which might be supplied ; but it is asking so little to propose that they should themselves refrain 
from suggesting that Arms " should be found" for their purposes. The field of ornament has a wide 
enough scope surely, even after everything heraldic is barred. 

Much might be done by the foundation of a School or Institute of Heraldic Design and Handi- 
craft. If therein a rigid rule were made that before any Arms were " touched " a certificate of them 
from an Officer of Arms were required to be lodged, I should imagine it would be found that all 
Officers of Arms would go to some trouble in recommending their clients to go there for their 
requirements, as would everybody else who had the welfare of Heraldic Art and true Armory at 
heart. There, are so few good heraldic handicraftsmen in existence, that the whole of them could 
readily be " retained," and the Institute, by superiority of workmanship alone, could give a cachet 
to the heraldic results of its handicraft which would soon be conceded and recognised ; and I fancy 
the shutters would soon be up in several objectionable quarters. 

I doubt the feasibility or the advantage of a return to compulsory " Visitations," but with all 
possible agreement I join my advocacy to that of others who recommend the renewal of the Visita- 
tions in a voluntary form. Many people, on the score of indifference, will not take the trouble to 
record their pedigrees, but might respond to an invitation to do so if special facilities were offered. 
The world is growing strangely casual and indifferent of late on matters of honour. 

The House of Peers has been stated by an able writer to be as representative a body as 
the House of Commons, the difference being that the composition of the one is permanent as 
representative of a permanent class, and the other varying as representative of a body varying in 
its constitution and wishes. Consequently there is everything in favour of the continuance of the 
hitherto practised methods of the selection and creation of Peers. 

But there is much to be put forward in favour of the consideration whether services to the 
Sovereign or the community, which may happen to be only of a comparatively minor character, cannot 
adequately and acceptably be rewarded in more frequent cases by grants of Patents of Gentility, or 
where gentility exists, by grants of Augmentations. Such a revival of ancient practices would greatly 
add to the dignity of Arms, and in each case can readily be made into a direct memento of whatever 
action it is desired to commemorate. And further, it would provide also for cases where services 
worthy of recognition have been rendered, where the means do not exist to satisfactorily maintain 
the dignity of knighthood, or of a hereditary title. 

It is much to be regretted that it is not considered a necessity for each person, as he attains his 
majority, to ascertain and record what Arms, quarterings, and difference mark he should display. 
And upon his marriage, it ought to be considered as much a matter of course as consulting a lawyer 
as to his marriage settlement, that he should consult an Officer of Arms as to what difference his 
marriage makes in his achievement. 

But even if the head of every family would take the trouble to investigate the right of his 
original ancestors to the Arms they claimed, and would then prove and register his own right to 
these Arms, and place upon record what he knows, a great step would be taken towards the correct 
end. A certain responsibility attaches to the headship of a house, or even of a branch of one. It is 
a rotten argument that because posterity have done nothing for you, you are called upon to do 
nothing for them. As it has been truly said, " Many things are lost to us which were known to our 
grandfathers, and our grandchildren will search in vain for things which to us are most familiar." 

And the Ex-Libris Society, by instituting a pillory of all those book-plates which bear illegal 
Arms, could, at any rate reduce to a minimum the further initiation of unauthorised Arms, simply as 
excuses for book-plates. I was present, by the courtesy of a member of the Society, at the last General 
Meeting, and heard the worthy Secretary exhorting all and sundry " to get a book-plate." As more 
than two-thirds of the Ex-Libris in existence are in some way Armorial, and as but a very small 
proportion of the world at large is genuinely Armigerous, the deduction is obvious. 

And there is much to be done in the literary field. Learned treatises are still multiplying in 
number, which will even yet continue to discuss the ancient controversy as to whether a lion 
passant guardant must not of necessity be a leopard, which even yet take poor Sir Isaac Heard 
to task for the coat he designed for Lord Nelson. It is certainly very interesting, but no book has 
so far taken proper cognisance of the legal as apart from the scientific and antiquarian view of the 
study of Armory. The scientific might well have been left until the legal was " understanded of the 
multitude." These pages may perhaps fill the void till some one more competent undertake the task. 



XXX Cfie abuse of arms 

I am constantly being asked to recommend a handbook of Heraldry. The ideal book has yet to 
be written. Planch^ is the truest writer who has yet set pen to paper on the subject of Heraldry. 
Read his " Pursuivant of Arms " first, and then read his edition of Clark's " Introduction to Heraldry." 
For a Dictionary of Heraldry Berry is far away the best. He is not universally accurate, but he 
will seldom lead you far astray. But his Armory is no better than any other. Some other modern 
treatises and dictionaries would have been of greater value had they never been published, and their 
authors might have easier tasks set them than to verify and correct their facts. 

Mr. Walter Rye did a great service to genealogists and antiquarians of all degrees— a service 
which I hardly fancy is yet thoroughly realised — when he wrote and published his book, " Records 
and Record Searching." In it he says : — " No catalogue or index has ever been published of the 
contents of the College, nor have the Officers of Arms ever considered themselves called upon to 
issue, as they most certainly ought to do, a hst of those persons who are and those persons who are 
not entitled to Armorial Bearings. Many of the earlier Visitations have been copied more or less 
accurately^rather less than more — and are to be found in the British Museum and other libraries." 
I mention it last because I consider this book is the most crying want that Heraldry knows. The 
College has not published such a book, and apparently has left the effort to be made by private 
enterprise. Had no heraldic book ever been pubUshed, had no list of Arms ever found its way 
into print, had no unauthorised " Peerage " ever been compiled, then it would have been well for the 
Science of Armory. If the attempt to supersede their jurisdiction had been suppressed ages ago, 
when the College had and exercised sufficient power and authority to have done so, they would 
have remained what they are not — (not only the sole authority upon matters of Arms), but — and 
here they would have had the power — the sole source of heraldic information. But it is idle to talk 
of lost opportunities, the situation of the moment remains. And it is this — every reference library 
has a copy of Burke's " General Armory," from whch the whole wide world helps itself to a 
crest or a coat-of-arms. Every day the newspapers and the penny post convey advertisements of 
those who pretend to find, for three-and-sixpence or less. Arms for those who don't know how 
to help themselves. Everybody who proclaims himself to be anybody must apparently sport a 
coat-of-arms. So that the need has undoubtedly arisen for some book which shall advertise, that all 
who run may read, which coats-of-arms are lawfully and legally borne ; that shall discriminate between 
the sheep and the goats ; that shall separate legitimate Armigeri from bogus pretenders. 

For the past two years I have been working — and in no casual manner, as the result will show — at 
a book aiming at such an end. The book is here, awaiting the judgment of my critics and every one 
concerned as to its object and manner of fulfilment. It is absurd to expect the first edition to be 
complete, or to be anywhere approaching perfection, for I say frankly that my list of authorised 
gentlemen of coat-armour so far is not very extensive. Some 50,000 circulars and information 
forms, bearing a request for a reply, have been issued, and I have received an enormous number of 
replies. With the exception of a few schedules, which I have found it impossible during the time to 
have examined, the whole of these have been dealt with, and the results will be found in the following 
pages. All the coats-of-arms at present appearing in the Peerages and Baronetages have been 
examined, and the results are given. To these I have added the Knights and Companions of the 
Orders of Knighthood, and those people bearing courtesy titles, and I have endeavoured that this first 
edition of my book shall contain the names of all such. Wherever I could ascertain that Arms were 
legally or illegally used I have added the details ; but, of course, a very large number have no Arms, 
and as to many I can obtain no information. A very large number of the Arms in Burke's " Landed 
Gentry " and Debrett's " House of Commons " have been scrutinised and inserted. Before the pub- 
lication of the next edition I hope to have included the whole of the remainder of the coats-of-arms 
mentioned or illustrated in either of these books, and also the few remaining schedules of which I 
have spoken. 

Where I could discover that the Arms without doubt were lawfully borne, I have inserted them 
in ordinary type ; and, to the extent of the knowledge I have, I honestly believe that every person so 
included is, by the law of the Realm and by the laws of Arms, unquestionably a Gentleman of coat- 
armour. 

In the cases in which I could not satisfy myself that the right to Arms legally existed the entries 
are in italics. I give the information for what it is worth, and each entry upon its own merits, subject 
to any qualifying remarks by which it is accompanied. No one besides myself knows the trouble I 
have gone to in order that my book should be accurate, but I can hardly expect a book of this 
magnitude to have gone through the press devoid of any error whatsoever. If I have treated any 
one unjustly I am truly sorry ; but as of the thousands of individuals mentioned in the book com- 
paratively but few are personally known to me, I have no reason for anything but an absolutely 
impartial standpoint. If any one considers I have wronged them, I can only ask them to communi- 
cate with me ; but I wish that as few as possible shall have cause of complaint. And I will myself 
undertake (unless prevented by circumstances which at the moment I cannot foresee) at the end of 
twelve months to print, at my own expense, a list of those people whose names appear by mistake 



Cfte atiuise of atms xxxi 

in my book as bearing Arms without authority, who at the moment of publication have their right 
duly recorded and allowed in the College of Arms, in Lyon Office, or in Ulster's Office ; and this 
list shall be forwarded to each of my subscribers, and inserted in the following edition of the work. 
Such a list cannot be very extensive, I know, but I have been engaged on this book for two years, 
and it is quite possible that the right may have been established since I made inquiry ; and it is 
possible I may have made my inquiry at the College of Arms, whilst the right was recorded in 
Lyon Office or Ulster's Office, or vice versd. 

It is possible some people may eventually establish a right to Arms which I have herein 
criticised adversely. I will publish in each revised edition a list of every one who, whilst now 
appearing in italics, shall at any future time legally establish his right to the same Arms which are 
herein referred to. 

The details of the Armorial Bearings have had my personal attention, and, as I have said, I 
believe them to be correct. For the other details I have been at the mercy of those who have 
supplied them and the sources from which they have been taken. And, unlike the details of the 
Arms, the other facts and matters have been largely dealt with by my assistants, and I am not 
inclined to personally vouch for them to the same extent that I hold myself responsible as to the 
Arms, but I have no reason to consider that my book is less accurate than other publications of a 
similar character. It may not be in some details so extensive, but I believe that the information 
I (/(? give is correct. 

The end I have in view mayhap is not yet near ; I may be a long time in reaching the goal I 
have set before myself, but the ideal towards which I am striving can soon be told. It is simply to 
take every living person who claims or pretends to the display of Arms, to quote the Arms he uses, 
and to let it be widely known whether his Armorial Insignia are borne with or without authority. 

The difficulties under which my book has been compiled may perhaps in some measure be 
appreciated when I say that I personally have had no access to the records of the College of Arms. 
My book is in no way official, being issued under neither the sanction, the authority, nor the control 
of the College of Arms, of Lyon Office, or of Ulster's Office. But it is for this reason in no worse 
plight than any other book. As far as I know, the " Ordinary of Scottish Arms " by the present 
Lyon King is the only official book relating to Arms which has ever been issued. 

But I have had the most cordial and generous help, encouragement and assistance, far beyond 
anything I had the least right or intention to expect, from Lyon King of Arms and Lyon Clerk in 
Scotland, from Ulster King of Arms and Mr. Burtchaell, his Secretary, in Ireland, and from Richmond 
Herald in England. I wish to disclaim on their behalf the least responsibility for the appearance of 
my book or for the statements it contains. That I know must pertain solely to myself, but the help has 
been given me, and I am more grateful therefor than I can express. But to Mr. Athill, Richmond 
Herald, is due even a far greater proportion of my thanks than to the others, though my debt to 
them is very large. Not only has he devoted time beyond calculation to my assistance, but he has 
been almost my sole source of information from the College. Continuously during the last four years 
has he untiringly made search upon search for me, and he has always been most ready and willing to 
answer my inquiries, and afford me advice. I don't say I have always followed it, for I haven't. 
Perhaps, had I done so in one or two matters, things might have moved more easily. 

Though I may claim to have been an acquaintance of Richmond Herald from my school- 
days, I had read and digested the usual run of heraldic books before claiming his assistance to any 
appreciable extent, but I wish to gratefully acknowledge the fact that it was he who first pointed out 
to me, that there was a legal side to Armory as well as an antiquarian. 

I wish for the book to take its place amongst the other recognised handbooks of the year, and 
I claim for it that it is the only book in existence giving the Arms of Peers and Baronets correctly, 
it is the onfy book which takes cognisance of quarterings save in a casual and indifferent manner, it 
is the onfy book giving the correct, legal and formal style of those whose names appear, it is the only 
book which gives Peers, Baronets, Knights, Esquires, and Armigers in one alphabetical list on the 
common ground of gentility, it is the only book which mentions the children of Knights and Com- 
panions of the Orders of Knighthood. It is the _firsl and only book to have touched upon the subject 
of liveries, t!a& first and only attempt to regulate the usage of cockades. It is the only book which 
concedes to a man the right to impale the Arms of his wife's family, and which recognises the fact 
that the Arms of a family change in their application from generation to generation. It is the only 
book in which the term and description of " Esquire " has been rigidly withheld from those who have 
not shown a valid reason for its being affixed, and in which a distinction is drawn between titles and 
courtesy titles. It is the first and only attempt to draw a plain, unvarnished, and legible distinction 
between those Arms for which the authority has been legally and duly established and those for 
which it has not. It is the first book of its character which has recognised fully that the laws of 
Arms differ widely in England, Scotland, and Ireland. It is the only book that has gone to the 
root of the matter, and treated of the abuse as well as of the use of Arms. 

And then one passes naturally to the question of what changes in the law are desirable. 



xxxii Cl)e atiuse of arms 

In the first place, it should be made imperative that, before any Charter of Incorporation be 
granted to any town or company, the fees payable upon a grant of Arms should be lodged with an 
Officer of Arms. This would at once check a great abuse, for I find that, unlike the cases of indi- 
viduals, when Arms legally exist for a Corporation there is seldom much inclination to go beyond or 
set aside what is duly authorised. 

The erection of no monument bearing anything of an Armorial character should be permitted 
without the production of a certificate from an Officer of Arms of its accuracy. 

No Arms whatsoever ought to be permitted to be erected upon any building other than a private 
dwelling-house without their validity being certified. 

It is desirable that an official Government " Inspector of Seals " be appointed under the direct 
authority and control of the Earl Marshal, Lyon King of Arms, and Ulster King of Arms. And it 
should be required that all official seals be obtained from him. And by " official " seals, I mean any 
seal whatsoever that is used for any purpose other than purely private and personal matters ; and I 
would include all Ecclesiastical and Municipal seals, and all Company seals, and those of the High 
Sheriffs. This would put an end to the present farce by which so many bogus coats are per- 
petuated. Such a regulation would inflict no hardship upon anybody, and would not require a single 
person to obtain a grant of Arms. For the official Bishoprics there are the official coats, and a 
Company or Municipal seal need be engraved with nothing beyond its legend. If the High Sheriffs 
did not chose to establish a right to Arms, a monogram would answer all their purposes. 

The exemptions at present made from the taking out of licences in the cases of "trade pur- 
poses," hackney carriages, companies, and corporations, it is desirable to abolish. They simply 
place a premium upon unauthorised coats. 

There is a regulation which requires that before the Patent of creation for a Baronet can pass 
the Great Seal, his Arms and pedigree shall have been first recorded in the Heralds' College. This 
should most certainly be made to apply to all other hereditary titles ; and if it were made to apply 
to the dignity of Knighthood as well, it would inflict no hardship, and might bring a handsome 
increase to the revenue. And Knights Grand Cross and Peers should be required to obtain grants 
of Supporters. They nearly all assume them, and they might just as well all be required to do 
it legally. 

It is desirable that upon proving and recording your right to a coat-of-arms, it should be 
possible to obtain damages from any unauthorised person who is making use of the same Arms. 
I am advised that as matters exist at present this could not be done, even after the coat had been 
"entered at Stationers' Hall." 

The penalty for improperly making use of the Royal Arms, besides being much more rigorously 
enforced, might, with advantage, be increased. It is doubtful to my mind if the Prince of Wales' 
badge at present is protected. If it is not, it should be definitely included. 

A penalty should be legalised and enforced upon those who make use of Municipal Arms for 
other than Municipal purposes. 

The last suggestion I will make is one for the origin of which I cannot claim the whole credit. 
The law at present requires that a licence shall be taken out annually for the use of Armorial Bear- 
ings, namely, of one guinea, or if used upon a carriage, of two guineas. 

The proposition in question is, that it should be open to any one, corporations included, to 
obtain a certificate from the Officers of Arms that they were legally entitled to bear Arms. Such 
certificate might, as a help to the Revenue, be required to bear a half-crown stamp. Upon the pro- 
duction of this certificate, a remission of 25 or perhaps 50 per cent, upon the amount payable to be 
made to the applicant. And failing the production of the certificate, the licences to be increased to 
two guineas and five guineas respectively. 

Such a change would at once commend itself not only to those Armigers who would be em- 
powered to take advantage of it, but to every one who has at heart in the least degree the welfare 
and respect of true Armory. A few people — e.g., of illegitimate descent — would pig-headedly pay 
the higher fee in perpetuity rather than have their claims adjudicated upon, but the great majority 
would immediately prove and establish their right or drop the use of Arms. Then there would be at 
once a practical end to the bogus display of Arms. 

Such a change is only likely to take place if it can be shown that it will increase or at least not 
diminish the revenue. It is my opinion, and also the opinion of all others whom I have consulted, 
that the revenue from this source would, as a result, substantially increase. In the first place, a large 
revenue would arise from the stamps upon the certificates. In the next place, a large number of 
people in undoubtedly good position are sinning through ignorance of the law, and making use of 
unauthorised Arms. They would have their attention forcibly called to this, and a large number of 
new grants would require to be issued, and the revenue from the stamps thereupon would be of great 
magnitude. It would call attention pointedly to the Scottish law of Arms, which requires all younger 
sons and cadets to matriculate their Arms, and of course in Lyon Office the whole of the fees accrue 
to the Government. There would constantly and continuously be required new matriculations as 



Cfte 3buse of arms 



XXXlll 



each younger son attained his majority, and the fees, ;^i2 in each case, would materially lighten the 
woes of the Chancellor of the Exchequer for the time being. And this would be by creating no 
new law of Arms, but simply by enforcing laws which not only exist but are recognised and in a 
measure conformed to at the present day. 

And it would be a " Democratic" budget enough, in all conscience, for it would not touch this 
latter-day fgtish, the British working man. 

But to my mind, as a lover of Armory, by far the greatest argument in its favour is, that it would 
in some measure restore the ancient respect for Arms — it would in some degree renew their ancient 
lustre. When they can be obtained for 3s. 6d. (no charge if an order for stationery be given), they 
have become rather cheap. Small wonder, then, that some people entitled to them by birth are by 
no means eager to display them. It would then mean in reality that the mere use of them was a 
genuine mark of gentility, and the end of " faked " pedigrees and " claimed " relationships would be 
at hand. 

I have little more to say; the advantages, on more general grounds, of these remedies for which 
I have pleaded I would much rather leave in some better hands to put forward — I would fain 
commit the task to some more facile pen, would hand it on to some more eloquent advocate. The 
age of chivalry may be at an end, the light of the olden time from the gloriously brilliant guiding star 
of honour may seem to be rapidly waning ; and with the " progress " and free trade of the times, 
with this insane desire for " change " of any sort, at any price, which seems to possess the world, 
comes the demand for " free trade in blazon." 

If honour be at an end, let its signs and tokens go with it ; let not the one outlive the other 
and degenerate into a meaningless farce, into the degradation of an abominable abuse. But to 
every action we are told there is a reaction equal and opposite, and surely some day the tide must 
turn. Mayhap it shall date from the far-away future, from a period beyond our lifetimes, but come 
it must, and a generation will arise which shall no longer bow its neck to the worship of "Democracy." 
When the glory of knightly honour once more shall hold sway in these kingdoms three, and these 
marks of honour again take their rightful place, let it not be said that whilst in our charge we have 
allowed their splendour to be tarnished or their lustre to be dimmed. Arms have even yet a 
lustrous meaning and a significance known and cherished by many, but "surely even those who 
affect the greatest contempt for Heraldry will admit that if Arms are'to be borne at all, it should 
be according to the laws of Arms ; and that, if the display of them be a matter of vanity, it is a less 
creditable vanity to parade as our own those which belong of right to others."

Editor) having belonged to Marten Anthonisz, Vryburger

[Barony, in the Peerage of Scotland.) Debrett says, " This 
title has been assumed since the 
^KoT¥ls>V*i>M s»rt?1 death of the ninth Baron in 1893, 
iSDK^i\)tX\}K'n tlllU ify Colonel Alexander Charles 
Hamilton ;" whilst Burke says, 
" This Barony is now dormant, 
but it may be presumed that 
Colonel Alexander Charles Hamilton of Holyfield Hall is 
the present and tenth Baron, No evidence, however, has 
yet been produced to establish the extinction in the male line 
of Captain Francis Hamilton, uncle of the late peer ; " and 
710 right to either the arms or title has been officially recorded 
or established. The said Alexander Charles Hamilton, who 
has assumed the title, has been served heir-male before the 
Sheriff of Chancery, and has entered into possession of the 
estates. He has voted without challenge at the last two 
elections of Peers at Holy rood, but this is not conclusive proof. 
He has ?tot established his claim before the Committee of 
Privileges of the House of Lords, but it is held that a Scottish 
Peer is not required to do so. He has not matriculated 
Arms in Lyon Register as Baron Belhaven. Apparently he 
is the representative of the family of Hamilton of Wishaw, 
to who7n arms are matriculated ; but these differ materially 
fro7n the arms quoted below. Application has been made to 
Her Majesty for a Pateiit of Precedence as the daughters of a 
Baron by the sisters of the above-mentioned A lexa?ider Charles 
Hamilton, but at the 7noment of going to press this has not 
been gazetted. Ci^eation — Original Pate^it, December 15,
