MottoVIRTUTE ET FIDE (By virtue and faith)

The whole achievement of arms, crest and badge allude to the twenty armigerous ancestors of the armiger. The cottised bend and tincture of the shield (together with the motto) are taken from the Harley arms. The three mural crowns represent the three strong points of Jerusalem: Mt Moriah, the Tower of David and the Gate of Pillar and refers to an early ancestor who took part in the first crusade. More family links are seen in the crest. The lion is from the Plantagenet arms and the double-queue is from the Welles arms. The indented line is used by Croft and Skerret and the tinctures of red and blue by Dabitot. The Harwoods’ checky field is seen in the collar of the lion and the estoile is for Rayner. Finally, the cross crosslet is found in the Beauchamp arms.
