Andrew Phillip LINGEN-STALLARD
Mr Lingen-Stallard is related through his grandmother to the ancient Hertfordshire family of Lingen from whose arms the bars, bend, roses and tinctures are taken. Sir John Lingen fought on the Yorkist side at the Battle of Mortimer’s Cross. Through his grandfather the grantee is related to the Stallard family whose arms bore the black lion’s heads in chief the whole is differenced by a silver bordure. The crest also features more allusions to family connections and to Mr Lingen-Stallard’s pro-fessional career. So the ducal coronet is used by the Lingen family and also refers to several feudal baronies and manorial lordships acquired by Mr Lingen-Stallard. The lion refers to his role as Senior Midwife and Modern Matron at King’s College Hospital and to his being Council Member and Trustee of the Royal College of Midwives. The stork is another link to the Stallard family and is a neat allusion to the grantee’s profession. The ear of wheat is taken from the crest of Baron Lingen of Lingen.
