MottoONWARD

Mr Hubber’s paternal ancestors were weavers in and around Crediton, Devon and weaving is often represented by a fret. The idea of using two swords as the cross pieces of the fret and making one blunt is to make them appear as the swords of Justice and Mercy and reflect the fact that the grantee is a JP. The tinctures of the shield are those of Mr Hubber’s livery company (Scriveners) and the national colours of maternal Swedish forebears. The crest’s circlet of books alludes to his being a publisher, while the red crowned lion is from the arms of Devon. The cannon barrel and lion’s face come from the arms of Greenwich where he lived and was a Borough Councillor. The mantling is red and silver, being the colours of the City of London of which Mr Hubber is a Freeman.
