ArmsAzure, a fess Or on a chief Or three Cornish Choughs proper.
CrestA torteau charged with a Cornish Chough Or.

It is possible that Mr Crocker’s family is related to that of Lineham (Lyneham) House in Yealmpton, Devon. They bore Argent, a chevron Gules between three ravens proper, together with a raven for a crest. Some Crockers settled in Cornwall where the ravens became choughs. Mr Crocker’s own family came from parishes in the South Hams area close to Yealmpton. The choughs in the arms are thus a difference, as is the chough in the crest. Mr Crocker’s uncle hoped that this would stand on a naval crown but instead it was placed within the torteau.

Granted1934 To Mr Crocker’s uncle, Rear Admiral Ernest Crocker CB
