A fess dancetty is the common charge found in the arms of several Rolls families in particular the Rolls of the Hendre with whom Mr Rolls may have found an 18th century link. The lymphads and anchors refer to the association Mr Rolls and his family have with shipping. The crest again provides a link with other Rolls families as well as being a pun on the name (as well as providing a reference to Mrs Rolls’ practice as a calligrapher). The red Lancastrian roses stand for Moncas and the white roses of York for Carr, on Mr Rolls’ mother’s side of the family. The motto is that of Mr Rolls’ old school, Royal Masonic.
