The bar and the tun are a pun on Mr Barton’s surname. The keys represent those of St Peter’s School York, which Mr Barton’s family has attended since the late 19th century. The white roses in the crest represent the county of Mr Barton’s family, while the birch rod is the instrument of his profession being that of a schoolmaster.
