The arms are a derived coat from the 17th century. Dr Brown’s earliest antecedents were Merchants of the Staple of Calais in Stamford in the 15th century and used the three wool-picks. These wool-picks are seen in the windows of Brown’s Hospital in Stamford. The old Brown crest was a ‘storks head couped and knowed’ so Dr Brown’s crest incorporates a reef knot (he was a surgeon) with two storks’ heads.
