Although domiciled in Switzerland, Mr Sproston can trace his English roots back to pre-Domesday, probably Saxon times (hence the wyvern in the crest) and with some probability to Cheshire, where name Sproston Green and Sproston Manor may be found. The oak leaves and golden garbs from the County arms of Cheshire allude to these connections. The bezants in the crest refer to Mr Sproston’s career in finance. The badge contains the sword of justice entwined by oak leaves because Mr Sproston is a Master of International Trade Law. The oak leaves allude to the English roots from which much of current international trade law springs.
